Description
Description: Suspenseful underscoring with rising chromaticism to increase tension; the music cuts out so that a gun sound effect can be heard
On-screen: Pete advances slowly
Analysis: Features a slow rising chromatic scale over a pedal tone that thickens to diminished triads, then half-diminished sevenths
