Great Soundtrack: Scream

Since it is October, why not get in the Halloween spirit with some seasonal music -- sort of. This month's Great Soundtrack feature comes from a fantastic horror film that shocked and surprised audiences in 1996 -- Scream. The indie horror flick went on to become a cult hit and while we all ask, "What's your favorite scary movie?" we look at the soundtrack that is just as hip, clever, and fun as the film it comes from.

Featuring music from Alice Cooper, Birdbrain, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Blue Oyster Cult, Republica, and many more, the music added an elevated creepy tone and fear to the film, while also being tongue-in-cheek. Coupled with a great score by Marco Beltrami, Scream had all the right elements for a classic.
