The synth-enhanced tune, played in 5/4 time, was famously performed by the director—and turned Halloween from a eerie, oddly brutal horror flick to something so much more nightmare-inducing. Try driving home from the theater without hearing those dreadful low notes after a viewing of this one. 4. Dead Slience 3. Jaws Two single notes never did as much work as it did when queueing...
