Synopsis

Amazon.com
Where the Bare Bones-produced Halloween Horror: Scary Sounds from the Hex Files starts off creepily slow and grows to periodic climaxes, Screamin' Halloween Sounds begins with the slam of broken glass and flies high from the first bang. The recurring sounds revolve around a growling--and genuinely freaky--voice that hovers in front of a melange of crashes and screams. There are wicked bells and the click of frightening steps approaching and wind whistling and lots more cage-rattling near-chaos. And like other Bare Bones productions, the 73 minutes of sounds are all gathered into one track. It differs from Halloween Horror, though, in one key way: the growly voice walks the listener through the imaginary landscape of horror, heading "downstairs" to the dismay of the witnesses on the CD, introducing key phases, etc. This is a nice touch, adding skeletal narrative. Try this if you prefer the disembodied-howls approach to Halloween rather than the semispooked music in the background of managed digital chaos. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

Very Good

"I used this cd for my Halloween Party last year and I was completely amazed When I picked it up in the store I thought to myself, "probably another one of those lame ones but this is the complete opposite. So if you want to give your guests a fright this Halloween please get this!"
FINALLY a Halloween CD For Those Out of Preschool

"After buying over 9 Halloween CDs looking for something to put a
genuine scare into you, at last something really good comes out.
Screamin' Halloween Sounds fills up the whole CD, and has an amazing "guide" that will chill you with a roaring laugh that never comes out forced, or fake, or cheesy; unlike SO many others that leave you flat. It has lots of black humor interlaced into it as well, and it suddenly comes at you with various lines like, "I will be with you forever...and ever...and ever...AND EVER!! Bwa ha ha ha ha!!!" and "If you don't do as I say, I'll feed you to the wolves!" And yes, yes, it's not made for little toddlers or the thin-skinned, but if you're ready for something besides Rated-G material for Halloween, this one is a real winner. This CD has strong influences from the movie Hellraiser and other horror flicks.
I played this out of my home's windows with blue lights, strobe lights, scary props and a fog machine. The results were spectacular, and the trick-or-treaters loved it."
Great for Gore Haunts

"This CD is a bunch of sound clips from the movie Hellraiser and I think some of the 2nd one ... Hellbound.I used it in my home haunt in Dr. Lou NaTick's Lab. This is not for the kiddies. Most of the sounds where very un-nerving.I think this is one of the best Sound F/X CD's I have bought."
