6 Songs That Sample Horror Films

Celebrate Halloween with these songs that sample some of the most terrifying moments from classic horror movies.

For some of us, every day is Halloween, from the way we dress to the music we listen to and the movies we watch. Horror films’ archetypal blood splatters, mutilated bodies and nail-biting storylines are synonymous with the sentiments of industrial music fans and artists. In the mid-to-late 1980s, the industrial genre provided an eerie digital landscape with creepy strings, aggressive beats and vocals worthy of an exorcism. With the advancement of music technology, musicians were inspired to compose new sounds and piece them together. Industrial artists began chopping up samples like murderers and psychopaths in horror flicks who severed the limbs of their victims. To celebrate All Hallow’s Eve, we’ve compiled industrial songs that sample some of the most poignant and terrifyingly delectable moments from classic horror flicks.
