Exclusive: Venture Into PET SEMATARY’s Darkness With Christopher Young’s “The Wendigo”

The music of Christopher Young has terrified horror fans for years. From his early works on Hellraiser and Invaders From Mars to his ’90s offerings on Tales From the Hood and Urban Legend to more recent titles that include Drag Me to Hell and Sinister, Young’s work has touched horror fans across generations. He is a maestro of terror, a conductor of fear, a wizard of suspense. And now, 26 years after composing The Dark Half Young makes his triumphant return to the world of Stephen King with Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch’s Pet Sematary.

If you haven’t seen the latest iteration of King’s haunting novel, we’re here to give you a taste of Young’s work with the track “The Wendigo”, a deliciously creepy slice of music that will bury its way under your skin with each passing note. You can listen to the piece above.
