Project director for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore, Michele Klyne, shares some killer tunes in time for Halloween. Here's what she had to say about her playlist.

"This is a to-die-for playlist to get your scare on. 'This is Halloween' by Marilyn Manson is the track we drop right before we begin the night at the 'Scaremony' aka our opening ceremony and our fans go nuts as it signals the start of the night. Even though our 'Scaremony' is just a five-minute show, it's quite the grand spectacle. Previous years involved blood, gore and spectacular stunts. This year we've focused on illusions and multi-media for a power-packed show.

Knife party's 'Power Glove' is another signature tune we play at the end of the 'Scaremony', generally during the climax of the show when something evil and diabolical has happened. Once the rope drops, you will see hordes of fans making a mad dash to the houses. It's really thrilling and exhilarating to witness the rope drop moment happen.

Thriller is the best zombie song of our time coupled with the best zombie dance of our time. If you're a zombie fan, you can always check out Zombie Laser Tag at Halloween Horror Nights where you get to battle flesh-eating zombies and SAVE THE WORLD! 'Hunting For Witches' by Bloc Party is a classic HHN song for me that puts me in the mood to strut the park and brave the crowds. Everyone needs a walking tune and this track always lifts me up and gives me the drive to get on the hunt.

'Super Freak' by Rick James is not an obvious choice for Halloween, but hey, this is the time for everyone to fly their freak flag! Halloween is that time of the year where it's ok to get super freaky and hang with other freaks like yourself."

Michele Klyne is the project director for Halloween Horror Nights 8 at Universal Studios Singapore. She's also known as the Horroracle and loves working with her crazy team to put together a real spooky spectacle each year.
