From the spine-tingling scores for Us, Get Out, and Ma to the gritty and horror-filled themes in Pet Sematary and Hellraiser to the ultra-spooky cues in Critters and The Head Hunter, horror films wouldn’t be nearly as terrifying without their musical scores. BMI composers Christopher Young and Gregory Tripi joined composers, Michael Abels, Russ Howard, Carl Thiel, and Nick Soole to pull back the curtain at this year’s Comic-Con and reveal how they created some of the world’s most frightening film music. This insightful panel was brought to Comic-Con by Defiant Public Relations and moderated by Steve Greene from IndieWire.
