The music score

For most of us music plays a major part of our lives. I know for me music flows through my veins, but music plays an important part of a film’s success. Music can make or break a movie. Don’t believe me? I was looking at a documentary of the making of Halloween (1978). Halloween is an iconic horror movie and one of my all time favorite horror movies. Michael Myers creeps me out. In the documentary the director was saying how he showed the original cut of the movie to someone before the music was added and her final opinion was that it wasn’t scary. Later, once the music was added it became the scariest movie she had ever seen. I found that amazing although I already knew the kind of effect that music can play on a movie. Also, take the two movie trailers forbthe upcoming film Black Panther. People have commented on the music choices alone for both of those trailers. The music makes you hype, ready to see that movie. Music is such a marketing tool. Music is power.
