The Devil's Themeby cedarcubical | created - 25 Jan 2017 | updated - 5 months ago | Public
At some point in all of these movies the Dies Irae Theme (A.K.A. The Devil's Music) can be heard. Classical composers have been quoting the theme for hundreds of years and that has branched over into film scores, as well. Will continue to add to the list as I hear more. Hail, Satan (...just kidding.)
