During the latest US presidential debate, there were several occasions where Donald Trump crept into the same shot as Hillary Clinton, standing directly behind her as she was talking.

These moments inspired composer Danny Elfman to take some time out of his busy schedule to generate an original piece - and, unsurprisingly, he's opted to go full blown horror.

Elfman's inspiration behind the piece is clear; he told Funny or Die: “Watching Trump lurching behind Hillary during the debate felt a bit like a zombie movie, like at any moment he was going to attack her, rip off her head, and eat her brains.”

You can hear the piece below.

Elfman is to thank for memorable scores such as Batman, Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sleepy Hollow and television series Desperate Housewives for which he won an Emmy Award. He also composed The Simpsons theme which has been used since the animated series began in 1989.

It's certain, though, this new composition will rank as one of his most unsettling pieces of work.
