Classical Halloween

I'm trying to decide what would be a perfect mix CD for Halloween music. So far I've got Hector Berlioz's Simphonie Fantastique and Night on Bald Mountain which scared the hell out of me as a kid when I saw it on Disney's Fantasia, Ave Satani from The Omen, Mozart's Requiem (At least the Dies Irae portion), Mussorgsky's The Hut on Fowl's Legs, Chopin's Mazurka No.3 in F#m Op 59, Vivaldi's Winter from The Four Seasons, Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Bach, Der Erlkonig by Schubert, Palladio Allegretto by Karl Jenkins (which you'd recognize as the DeBeers' commercial music), Arnold Schoenberg's Serenade Op. 24 (He of the Second Viennese School and the 12 tone chromatic scale), Franz Liszt's Mephisto Waltz
and finally Chopin's sublime Fantasy Impromptu.
