Leatherface and his lethal chain saw to invade Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 26

Flashes of a familiar facemask blur the line between reality and film.  The roar of a chain saw inside a darkened, deteriorating farmhouse is deafening.  You are being hunted.  Moving past the rotting remains of other victims, you find your escape blocked by an immovable force. A force that has only one purpose – complete and total destruction.

Music of the Jungle Book

Jungle Book Soundtrack
Jungle Book Soundtrack

In honor of the new live action Jungle Book movie coming out next week, I thought I’d take a look back at the 1967 classic animated feature film and its music. This movie holds a place near and dear to many Disney fans’ hearts as one of the last films ever that Walt Disney personally had a hand in directly influencing it. The music from the Jungle Book stands out as some of the best from the Disney movies of the 1960s. The soundtrack was nominated for both an Oscar for Best Original Song for “The Bare Necessities,” and for a Grammy Award for Best Recording for Children.
