The Apprehension Engine: A Musical Machine Designed To Make Scary Sound Effects For Horror Movies

May 8, 2017


This is a video demonstration of The Apprehension Engine, a conglomerate of musical instruments built by Tony Duggan-Smith so filmmakers can create their own creepy sounds instead of paying for stock audio. Admittedly, it does sound pretty scary. Now I'm not saying I peed my pants-- "But you did." Right, but I'm not saying it because that would be embarrassing. "But you just admitted to it." That's it, I want to speak to my lawyer.

Keep going for the eerie demonstration.

Thanks to DD, who informed me he keeps these sound effects playing in his apartment all the time to keep his roommates on their toes.

    The scariest sound in the world is the sound of elevator doors closing ... followed by a wet fart.

    It's like a 90s grunge rock band doing a sound check on guitars and drums

    I always knew Hurdy-gurdys were evil.

    I finally know what to blame for not being able to hear dialogue on Hannibal. At least it sounded cool, mostly.

    This is awesome! It would be so cool for a movie soundtrack. What a cool concept!
