Putting together a proper motion picture soundtrack is something of a lost art. Often thought of as a final step in packaging a film for it's final release, many films suffer from a lack of care when it comes to a proper sonic counterpart. While original scores can set the mood and tone of a film, working brilliantly for epics that require no "pop" or "rock" enhancement, in some cases the latter works better and that's usually where the problems start to show. When done correctly, a proper soundtrack should conjure images of the film for listeners long after the last flicker of the projector, or the final screen of the DVD.

The first decade of the "new millennium" has been overtly devoid of memorable soundtracks for the horror genre (sans a few exceptions), as if the music supervisor was brought on-board last-minute and given a tiny budget to work with. »
