From Kong to Kong: the 18 greatest monster movie scores

13 March 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Kong: Skull Island out now, Sean Wilson looks back at the classic monster movies with top tunes…

It’s time for Kong to reclaim his crown as king of the movie monsters in all-action blockbuster romp Kong: Skull Island, the latest instalment in the ongoing Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures ‘MonsterVerse’ that will eventually see the great ape do battle with the equally legendary Godzilla.

Featuring an all-star cast led by Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly, Skull Island also features a rousing score from Captain America: Civil War composer Henry Jackman who uses every orchestral force at his disposal to depict Kong’s overwhelming size.

So what better time to recap the all-time-greatest monster movie scores from Hollywood and beyond?

King Kong (Max Steiner, 1933)

The one that started it all, as well as the birth of the monster movie and its accompanying soundtrack. Few »
