Adding haunting music and scary sound effects to your Halloween haunt can really enhance the overall effect and stimulate your guests.

Background music, often called sound-scapes, for Halloween can be used help to heighten the overall effect of being in a sinister place. Sounds effects must be used sparingly! When to many and / or much is added to your haunt it can be distracting and actually take away from your scene.

Halloween MusicMidnight Syndicate puts out some of the best "mood music" that we have found for Halloween. Their Gothic soundtracks contains chilling sound effects, haunting melodies, and pulse-pounding orchestrations to set the mood for your darkest nightmare. Born of the Night and Gates of Delirium are our favorites. New to the 2006 Halloween season was "The 13th Hour" CD. Definitely a must have! It's available at Halloween retailers everywhere for around $12.99. A great price!

This CD will be on your "favorites" list for either lone listening, a party or to use as background music for your yard haunt or haunted house. We take it with us any time we are driving to pop in the CD player to keep us in the Halloween mood year round!
