I have been navigating the archives of SSD and noticed that a lot of people have posted queries about their favorite sounds from films. I am always fascinated with how we make these sounds and what has inspired us to come up with new and unique ways of affecting the audience by adding in an X factor to a common, everyday sound such as a car engine.
Woulds be interested to know what is your favorite cinematic car sound and why? Mine is the Evil Van/Truck from Jeepers Creepers. It seems to be a combo of an 18 wheeler, some animal growl, old machinery squeaking and creaking. Could be wrong, but is definitely frightening. Also, the POV shots of the evil presence from "The Evil Dead". I know that this is not a vehicle but they did record the motorcycle that the camera was mounted on and then pitched it down to amplify the low ends. Great stuff.
