    I always liked Donnie Darko soundtrack.

    It's a great one, although the original soundtrack was missing one of the best pieces, the requiem that plays in the movie theater (this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwmTCIHPRsM)
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    Also, Ephemeral Sun: it's a thing and we like making things that might be your thing: http://www.ephemeralsun.com

    As my avatar might imply, one of Bernard Herrmann's that has not been mentioned that I really like is The Day The Earth Stood Still. There is a 15 minute suite arrangement of the music that I've seen around in various forms, and it works really well for Halloween, particularly any music associated with Gort.

    Another one, though it's fairly obvious, is the soundtrack for Alien by Jerry Goldsmith.

    Is that William Burroughs? If not, its sounds a lot like him.
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    What is that the soundtrack to? I'm assuming it's a non-English film?

    Two classic creepers right here.

    Not creepy at all, but I always found the Pat Metheny score to Falcon and the Snowman very haunting. Some of those really stick with you like Chris.

    This one has been posted in other soundtrack-threads, but should be mentioned here too.

    Colin Towns: Full Circle



    And another by Philip Sarde: Ghost Story, based on a novel by Peter Straub:



    And Scott Johnson's soundtrack for Patty Hearst gives me the creeps too (especially that "Mom Dad Mom"-sequence):

    Kubrick's genius in choosing Penderecki's music for "The Shining". Unmatched.

    His music was also used for Shutter Island (Symphony no. 3: Passacaglia - Allegro Moderato).



    Lots of other creepy stuff on that soundtrack too, but also beautiful pieces by Max Richter:

    I think I prefer the original over the remake.

    Confirmed Bachelors: the dramedy hit of 1883...

    The Caretaker’s ‘Everywhere at the end of time’ is, for me, haunting to the point of nausea - the soundtrack to oncoming dementia, with its fading and distorted old waltzes tugging at an increasingly fractured memory, is almost unbearable to listen to. Not a textbook definition of a ‘soundtrack’ perhaps, but absolutely terrifying.

    Courtesy of Jerry Goldsmith, one of the best pairings of orchestra and synth I've heard.
