The theme music for the 1983 science-fiction thriller The Dead Zone, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, was composed by Michael Kamen (1948-2003), who, by the way, collaborated with Pink Floyd on the album The Wall.

Nick Bode, a commenter at YouTube, noted about the theme to The Dead Zone:
When Michael Kamen was composing this score, he'd play it over & over on his piano at home. His neighbor called & said "Please stop playing whatever that music is. You're giving my family nightmares." Epic.
Listen to this music. Do you agree with Mr. Bode?

  2. You've got me too afraid to listen to it now.

  3. I dunno, just doesn't sound scary to me. I could imagine all sorts of movie video to go along with it, granted none of it like Julie Andrews dancing through a field with an umbrella.

  5. Sounds to me like an evil Peter and the Wolf somehow :-) At least it did in the beginning; I didn't listen long cuz I don't need to feel MORE scared in AMerica today!

    Good on you on the other stuff, AOW. xx

  6. Reminds me of Tubular Bells from The Exorcist.
