The 99 Darkest Pieces of Classical Music

Perhaps not exactly a Halloween sound effects or collection of ambient music like some of the other albums in this list, this album – a collection of great spooky music at a low, low price brought to you by the X5 group, is a steal, containing over 11 hours of music. Some of the tracks include Toccata and Fugue by Bach, or the “Aquarium” from Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals”. Of course, this album isn’t all scary with some of the tracks even sounding a little happy. Nevertheless, this is a deal not to be missed and contains many tracks perfect for Halloween.

Halloween Howls

Released in October 1996, by Andrew Gold, this collection of creepy sounds and Halloween sound effects is now considered to be a classic. After all, Dr. Demento considers it one of the two best Halloween albums in history (I assume that the other is an actual Dr. Demento Halloween disc, called Spooky Tunes and Scary Melodies). Favs include Witches, Witches and Scary Skeletons!

Halloween Music Collection (Midnight Syndicate)

A fantastics ambient Halloween album from the great dark ambient band, Midnight Syndicate. These songs are previous releases from the band, but mixed specifically for the sake of Halloween. This is definitely one Halloween album that you don’t want to miss.

Nightmare Before Christmas Special Edition

It’s confusing – is this a Christmas movie or a Halloween movie? What is not confusing is that this is a classic soundtrack to a classic movie. Also not confusing is how amazing Danny Elfman is at composing a great film score. This isn’t one of those spooky sound albums that I adore, but you definitely want this on hand when Halloween roles around.

One Hour Haunted House Music

Looking to replace your old cassette of spooky sounds? Need to blast some spooky Halloween sounds out the front window for the trick-or-treaters? This incredibly cheap Halloween album features over an hour of screams, ghosts, howls, storms, on and on… Cheap spooky sounds at its best.

Halloween’s Gravest Hits (Expanded Version)

Another album that will definitely fit the bill while you’re passing out candy on Halloween night. This album from Capitol features nearly 50 Halloween tracks.

Halloween’s Gravest Hits (Expanded Version)

What do Ghostbusters, Thriller and Beat It all have in common? Well, they’re just three of the great Halloween classic tracks on this album. Other tracks include Monster Mash, The Time Warp, Frankenbass, The Reaper Returns and The Cryptkeeper. Awesome.

Halloween: Scary Themes

Remember the creepy theme songs for the Exorcist? It’s one of those movie theme songs that just creep me right out. Fits the movie so well too. This album features that sone and all the greatest Horror movie theme songs. Includes Halloween, Rosemary’s Baby, Friday the 13th, Cape Fear, Dracula, Alien, X-Files and a load more. Seriously, some really great and memorable spooky tunes.

Halloween Songs & Sounds

This is a classically formatted Halloween album from the great Disney. The album contains some songs and a bunch of sound effects. Perfect for the front door during Halloween eve. It’s a great little album for young trick or treaters and kids of all ages. Cute songs, great (not cheap) sound effects right from Disney themselves.

Spooky Halloween Ambience

Another 1 hour of ambient Halloween sound effects from Captain Audio. And again, super cheap. Impulse purchase maybe?
