my taste in music changes weekly so it's usually whatever badass, high energy song that ive had playing in my car and in my head for the week. whatever gets my adrenaline pumping - i do have the saw theme song on my ipod though.

Anything by Midnight Syndicate. It is especcially made for haunted houses, and, in my opinion, there is nothing better.

to get me in the halloween spirit, I listen to mainly dark ambient music.

when I am getting into costume, I pump hard dance music into my headphones. it builds my energy up and totally gets me ready to go. It makes me want to move around and give me confidence.

almost anything on the Roadrunner Label....

Then there's Jerry Vayne...oh my what music!

I seldom listen to anything orchestral unless

some serial music and experimental...

I have a friend who ever year makes me a mixtape (acutally a CD) of select rockabilly, psychobilly, metal, and similar stuff form her enormous collection. I might get Danzig, The Misfits, The Supersuckers, Rob Zombie, Rocket 350, PsychoCharger, and/or many others. I never know what's in it until she sends it to me in September.

I'm sure she's already started putting it together...

well it's not about music that gets me sometimes but..


it's more the meeting before we go to work. All the actors will do the rules and then our boss gets us yelling and stuff before we go out there.


I do sit in my car and lessen to nice music before anything...
maybe i am weird like that...

I just put the Halloween theme on my ringtones and set it for text notic. I get all happy inside when I hear it. Beetle Juice is my call tone.
Anyone on the Verizon network interested in it just PM me. I found out that I can froward them. I made my own on a website so you get to pic the best parts

drowning pool, underoath, escape the fate and THE ENTIRE Queen of the Damned soundtrack.
im not in high action spots most nights - mostly dialoging face to face with the customers so i like more main stream than full on screamo angry music

Before I go out ot scare people I listen to Nox Arcana or Midnight Syndicate. It really gets you in the mood and gets you in the horror zone.

Magic By Pilot
And
O Fortuna by Beethoven
Two of the best songs ever right there. (In my opinion)

Music doesn't do it for me.
I simply get excited when people show up here, maybe that's why I'm doing this every night of the entire year? (For 21 years)
It is very addictive, having all of this very peculair fun.
And everything I do here is done in fun and I think 98% of my customers know this and even look forward to it being this way that I orchestrate it.
I don't get bored because I adjust the tour constantly as to how people are reacting. I could probably fill up 3 or more hours with non-stop routine here, telling the house's ghost stories with attempted humor or not, depending on why they are here some just want the serious storys and I enjoy doing this too.

Let's see... I have a whole playlist dedicated to music to get me in the mood to scare...

1. Psychosocial - Slipknot
2. Horrors At War - Debauchery
3. 1997 (Tonight we're gonna party like it's...) - Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
Actually anything by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.
4. Not Falling - Mudvayne
5. Any remix of the theme "Vampire Killer" from Castlevania
6. Trollhammaren - Finntroll
7. Death Rattle - Pantera
8. Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
9. Ace of Spades - Mötörhead
10. Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold
11. That's Wicked - Twiztid (Yeah, so sue me)
12. Torture Pit - Debauchery
13. Raining Blood - Slayer
14. Wish I Had An Angel - Nightwish

And I doubt I'll change it much, at least in the near future. As I said though, that's just my pre-haunt, pre-scaring music. I just feed off the ambient noise and energy when I'm actually scaring. Once I'm in the mood, it comes naturally.

Pretty much anything can get me worked up, even the 1812 Overture(the whole thing..) but I like a bit of Kamelot and Nightwish, because they put me in a "performance" kind of mood.

While I'm on my way to the House, I usually start out with something you'd hear in a club(black-eyed peas, 50 cent, or whatever thumps and makes no lyrical sense), and work my way to heavy rock, though.

Gotta love the old school stuff, too! My list just has mostly grimy newer metal stuff because I'm acting in a post apocalyptic area, and it feeds that feral, scavenger/squatter mentality for me.

I'm actually a bit surprised that I'm not the only one here who listens to either! lol.

My main song that I played in the car on the way to the haunt was, and probably will be from now on, "To Catch A Predator" by ICP. The creepy, comedy and killing combine just too darn well in that song and for some reason gets me really into character, and I'm not even a clown.

I'm a bit quirky in my music tastes, so I will listen to anything from Rob Zombie and Pantera to Broadway show tunes (Chicago, Cabaret, Rent, etc).

Yeah back when a buddy and me use to do the clown maze at a old haunt we worked at it was usually amazing maze on the way to work. Extremely loud too I might add! We'd walk around singing icp all night in that place. I've been doing haunting for 12years and still listen to that everynight I was working

Back in the day I loved listening to Bodies by Drowning Pool. Now a days though pretty much as soon as boss man flips the breakers for the house lights to go off & the prop lights on I get excited!

Haha, me too, though I've been haunting for a much shorter period. lol. There was another Juggalo working my haunt this year, too. Crazy how we all come out for Halloween stuff!

Oh, I'd also like to add to my list of music that pumps me up, Rammstein. Freuer Frei specifically.
