From Hell (Film Score) – Trevor Jones

Album: From Hell Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Artist: Trevor Jones

Released: 2001

Description: An excellent horror score, it is dark, suspenseful, and constantly brooding and building. Unlike more recent horror scores, it does not rely on sound design, screeching strings, or brutal strikes from the orchestra; instead Trevor Jones uses minor harmonies and rumbling lower strings to unsettle the listener. Yet somehow he also manages to make the music darkly melodic. Great for horror, suspense, or writing any scene at night where danger is afoot.
