Favorite Halloween scores - Day 4.

Every so often, a studio will get a yen to make a horror-themed animated feature.

5. Corpse Bride (Danny Elfman) - Much like the film, the score pales in comparison to that other Burton/Elfman musical, but is quite enjoyable on its own terms.

4. ParaNorman (Jon Brion) - Brion's score was a vital component to the underrated feature, highlighted by inventive orchestrations.

3. Monster House (Douglas Pipes) - Pipes made an impressive debut with his lively score for the 80s throwback, its bounding main theme a particular standout.

2. Frankenweenie (Danny Elfman) - Elfman nicely combines horror tropes and wistful scoring with a creepy main theme.

1. The Nightmare Before Christmas (Danny Elfman) - What else could possibly top this list? Catchy songs, tuneful underscore, great fun.

Here's hoping to see more animated horror in the future.
