Do you like scary movies? I'm sorry, let's be more specific. you like Horror Movies scored by Thom Yorke of Radiohead? Well, you're in luck, boy: do not look now, but there's one right behind you! AAAAAAAAHH !!!!!
Yorke soundtrack for the new remake of the cult seventies horror movie Suspiria is not a film score the way we say, the orchestral opuses of his bandmate Jonny Greenwood for There will be blood Y Ghost thread They are movie scores.

It's an intriguing side twist for Yorke, who continues to find new ways to unsettle and delight listeners after all these years as one of the biggest ghosts of the night.
