The franchises that helped to revitalize a genre gone stale in the late '90s, the Scream films helped to bring the slasher flick back to the mainstream. But a slasher flick cannot get by on its villain alone, and Scream 3 was made all the better by its tense score. Composed by horror veteran Marco Beltrami, Scream 3 has a nail-biter of a score, blending eeriness with just the right amount of aggression to create the kind of nervy atmosphere that's essential to any slasher film. This is the score for any horror junkie looking to relive the thrills and chills of this now classic film, or for anyone who just wants the feeling of being chased.
