These are the eerie musical instruments that give us chills in horror movie sound effects

You are frightened by watching a horror flick, but do you know what really makes the movie so scary?
The plot, actors and their characters are all crucial parts that build up suspense in a horror movie. However, there is something else that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and it’s the music and sound effects.
You may not have put much thought into what types of instruments produce those frightening sounds, but here they are. Let’s look at some of those creepy instruments. Watch the videos as well.
The instrument below is called a waterphone. If you watch the video you’ll see that the bronze rods around the edge of its resonator make it look almost as scary as it sounds.

You can play them in several different ways to produce weird and out-of-this-world sounds, all of which give the listener goosebumps.
Here’s another instrument. Known as "The Apprehension Engine,” it was custom built by Tony Duggan-Smith for his friend to use in his horror films. Like the waterphone, it's very powerful in terms of all the different ways that can be used on it to create unsettling sounds.
Being a musician, I would love to have one of these instruments myself.
Don’t forget to share these creepy instruments with the horror buff in your life.
