    What are some of the best scary movie dvd's with a good surround sound mix?

    I watched DARKNESS FALLS last night and it had a good mix.

    Heh, I was going to suggest Darkness Falls.

    I'm sure there must be a few.. risible though they are does anyone know what the tracks on 'Final Destination' are like?

    While it's not a "scary movie" per se (more stylish than most, tho), Coppola's Dracula has one of the best surround mixes I've heard.

    Cheers,

    This was just discussed in a thread that's just a few weeks old. You can find many good recommendations there, including my recent favorite, Resident Evil.

    The Others has a pretty immersive and atmospheric 5.1 soundtrack.

    overaggressive is an understatement but the DTS soundmix of "Brotherhood of the Wolf" is unnerving and ear assaulting.

    "The Others" has a great 5.1 soundmix.

    While traditionally not a horror movie per se, but Sam Raimi's "The Gift" has an amazing 5.1 etheral soundmix.

    Try "The Haunting" - the DTS ES version. You get creepy sounds out of every speaker!

    Just watched The X-Files last night in DTS. The alien attacks, especially in the beginning, are very powerful.

    Scream 3. The surrounds are used to create a very scary surround experience.

    The Book of the Dead edition of The Evil Dead has a very nice 5.1 mix (both DTS and DD).

    I second The Haunting DTS ES, but be forewarned, go easy on the volume, your house' foundation is at stake. [​IMG]

    One of my favorite DD tracks has got to be for The Relic! A thundering and unnerving mix, plus one helluva nightmare movie to boot!

    Great audio mix on The Ring as well, lots of strange music and shock effects when death strikes it's victims.

    Final Destination has a commanding audio mix, 'the vision' scene, the train scene, everything!

    Jeepers Creepers is another good one.

    Agree with The Relic Very scary and a scary, home-foundation ripping Dolby Digital track. Bass is a little overcooked but still great.

    Have a DTS Demo disc with a segment of "The Relic" that is outstanding, it'll probably never happen, but I'd love Paramount to rerelease this film with extras and a DTS track to boot!

    I thought the sound mix on "Below" was pretty good.
