No matter how old I get, there's a particular music piece that still gives me chills whenever I hear it, and that's "Night on Bald Mountain" by Modest Mussorgsky. The said piece was included in Disney's Fantasia, but I specifically remember it as the soundtrack of the horror film Asylum. That final scene where Dr. Starr, aka Martin, laughs and the music plays at the end of the movie still creeps me out. Here are a few more spine-tingling Classical music you may be familiar with.
