    The Day the Earth Stood Still – Soundtrack (1951)

    Bernard Herrmann was an American composer who gained most of his fame scoring motion pictures. His most famous movie scores were for Alfred Hitchcock (such as Psycho and Vertigo and Ray Harryhausen (such as Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad).

    William Castle - Ghost Story - Thrilling, Chilling Sounds of Fright & the Supernatural (1972)
    Sound Effects

    I have a deep appreciation for the film projects of William Castle. Castle made horror films in the late 50’s and early 60’s, and nearly every film involved some kind of gimmick to get people into the theaters. “House on Haunted Hill” was filmed in “Emergo” … at the climax of the film, when a skeleton ...

    Okay, this is my first haunted blog post.

    I've got a couple of projects I'm actively working on at the moment. I completed a pirate ship earlier in the summer made out of a 14 foot long canoe.

    I thought the place was perfect -- I felt right at home immediately, ...

    Vincent Price – A Graveyard of Ghost Tales (1973)
    Ghost Stories

    If you don’t know who Vincent Price is, I find it hard to believe you’re even reading this. Price recorded a number of scary albums in the mid-70’s, and this one is not only the first of the group I discovered, it is my favorite.
