    I am looking for some uber-creepy soundtrack music. Very dark, eerie, chanting monk sounds a plus, Catholic boy choir stuff like from The Omen a double plus.

    I don't want any of the new horror stuff that has loud drums and guitar ( like the stuff Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor have done recently. ) I want something more ambient and mellow.

    Someone told me that I could find what I am looking for in Japanese video game soundtracks or Japanese movie soundtracks, but I don't even know where to begin looking.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

    I just downloaded it, it really is a creepy song.

    EDIT: @Turkishjade
    You could try "Room of Angel" from Silent Hill 4. Its by Akira Yamaoka. Really nice and kinda creepy song.

    lee551: I'll try that. Is the rest of their work similar? Is it worth investigating their stuff for my purposes?

    Rip The Jacker: Surprise, surprise! That song is exactly the reason why I am on this search. Mrs. Turkishjade to Be actually had me research the chick who sang the song ( Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. ) Fortunately, the rest of her songs are all for video games and are all available on Soundtracks. Unfortunately, they all suck. We did a little investigation of our own based on movies we liked and all we found were Type O Negative, Korn, Marilyn Manson and the like. Not bad at all, but not creepy. To put it in her words: "It's not creepy if you can nod your head to it." F'n A Right! I had to give her a slightly stronger golf clap for that one!

    I still need suggestions, if anyone has them. Anything mellow like the music from Silent Hill....not as hard as any of the Jason Movies, but more like the Omen movies. Keywords: Haunting, Creepy, Scary, etc.

    Thanks to everyone on this forum... I don't visit often enough, but I'm glad when I do!

    most of these have words, but they produce that creepy effect nonetheless, and do it quite well:
    thought gang :: the black dog runs at night
    aphex twin :: logon rock-witch
    tom waits :: earth died screaming
    portishead :: wandering star
    air :: sex born poison

    Oh wow I'm good.

    A lot of the Silent Hill music is really nice, there is a good piano song (no words) from Silent Hill 2 called True. You could check it out if you'd like.
