Donald Trump’s treatment of women during his presidential campaign has been chilling, but he’s been turned into a true horror movie villain thanks to a funny new viral video. Funny or Die tapped legendary composer Danny Elfman to give a soundtrack to a supercut of Trump’s odd stalking of Hillary Clinton during the second presidential debate on Sunday, October 9, and the results are frightful.

The video, titled “Trump Stalks Hillary,” turns the misogynistic candidate into even more of a monster, following Clinton around the stage like a shadow. It was an odd strategy that was roundly mocked on Twitter. But this reimagining brings Trump squarely into Michael Myers / Jason Voorhees territory, creeping behind her like an “It Follows” fever dream.

Elfman, known for scoring blockbusters like “American Hustle,” “Beetlejuice” and “Men in Black,” is a frequent collaborator with Tim Burton, and also wrote the iconic theme for “The Simpsons.”

Trump and Clinton are set to face off again in a third and final debate on October 19, during which Trump will surely do or say something even more frightening.
