Greets from munich. Me and two colleagues are going nuts because we cant find out who composes this little melody:

Its at 4:47.

I think its a classical theme (Beethoven, Brahms...) and is used in Horror-Movies i guess.

Any ideas anyone? I cant concentrate on work!

You are referring to something that is called a Sting

A sting is a short musical phrase, primarily used in television shows and films as a form of punctuation—for example at the end of a scene, or as a dramatic climax is imminent. It can be played on a variety of instruments and performed by a group or orchestral ensemble.

Another form of sting, often incorrectly called a rimshot, is used only in comedy and played just on percussion instruments (such as drums or cymbals) as a payoff after the delivery of a punchline.

A musical sting can be used in drama, comedy, horror or any genre, and in radio and television advertising. It is a part of the music director's lexicon. It is often used to build tension.

The origins of the Sting are deeply rooted in classical music - namely Wagner - but when applied to drama they were first heard on Radio Shows.
