Horror sound effects
We love recording and bringing you these free horror sound effects and if we’ve got a day free, we tend to gravitate to making more. This category features lots of horrible, disgusting and scary sounds, from eye watering bone breaks, blood and gut drips and splats to ghosts and evil laughter. If we told you the secret to how we make some of these sounds, you’d be shocked! That bone break is likely celery or some other root vegetable being snapped, crunched and broken. The blood drips… cornstarch mixed with water makes a great thick blood sound. Guts… pasta, rice and jelly. While often messy to record, it’s worth it. We spend a lot of time designing horror elements too, from dark, horrifying drones, dark ambiences and dungeons to huge cinematic hits, ideal for horror film trailers and movies. We’ve a great selection of monster sound effects too, including zombies, creatures, vocalisations, grunts, growls, groans and lots more. These are the perfect Halloween sound effects!
