About the Sound Effects Library

MCC-CoverAdmittedly, the sounds in this library does not contain any real sounds of monsters attacking cars. It does, however contain sounds of sound-guys jumping on car roofs and beating car doors, smashing windshields and destroying paint jobs, with a big axe, and a crowbar.

The sounds were originally recorded for the Danish horror movie Dannys Dommedag, directed by Martin Barnewitz, sound designed by Peter Albrechtsen, and rerecorded by Tim Nielsen and Peter Albrechtsen.

In one particular scene, a giant fishy monster was attacking a car, wrecking the roof and windshield, with the main actor being inside. Peter Albrechtsen wanted the sounds to be terrifying, like the audience was inside the car themselves when the roof imploded from the weight of the monster.
Low sense DPA 4061 microphones were placed inside a car, and different actions were performed on it, like hitting, dragging, jumping, stepping and other improvising actions.
Microphones were also placed inside and outside the car, and windshields were smashed, with crowbars. These recordings covered the massive impacts as well as the small detailed glass pieces falling inside the car.
