Hellbent For Horror


Mar 7, 2017

What does a shark sound like as it gets closer to you?

What does October 31st sound like?

Or Marion Crane's last thought?

When you look up a long flight of stairs in Georgetown, what do you hear?

Horror Fans know.

When a haunting visual and a haunting score are in perfect harmony, they have the power to enter your memory and trigger your emotions.

In this episode, Author J. Blake Fichera joins us to discuss his Rondo Nominated book, "Scored to Death: Conversations with Some of Horror's Greatest Composers" and to share anecdotes from the men who gave music to the monsters.

Blake and I also share our own personal connections to horror soundtracks and sound design, and how music was the Pied Piper who led us down the dark path to a lifelong love of horror films.

Enjoy this jam-packed episode!
