Horror film composer Mark Korven (who worked on 2015’s The Witch) commissioned a guitar maker to create a one-of-a-kind instrument that emits creepy, disturbing noises. Made with metal rulers, cranks, wires, and wooden boards, the unique contraption offers a haunting analog alternative to recycled digital samples.

Behold the “Apprehension Engine,” instrument of nightmares, and testament to the ingenuity of practical (sound) effects.
