Film music legend Danny Elfman has made some shocking imagery of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton even more shocking.
Via the legendary comedy sketch site FunnyOrDie.com, the composer has created a symphonic sketch for a montage of footage from the second presidential debate.
The footage focuses heavily on Republican candidate Donald Trump’s now-infamous performance, where he could be seen prowling in the background whenever Democrat Hillary Clinton was speaking.
As a result, Elfman’s short score treats the footage as if it were a sequence from a horror film, using atonal, screeching strings and a haunting vocal line. It’s called, not unreasonably, ‘TRUMP STALKS HILLARY’.
Enjoy this intense horror:
