Reel Fear is the 19th track for Bendy and the Ink Machine, used in Chapter 3 and 4. It was written by theMeatly.


The music consists of several orchestrated violins, tuba, and basses, as well as a bass drum banging steadily in the background. As the track plays, an erhu can also faintly be heard, before a crash of horn instruments sounds milliseconds before the track ends. The music plays followed by the Projectionist's screech. Gives the player a sense of fear while running away from the projectionist.


  • In Chapter 3: Rise and Fall, this theme plays when the Projectionist begins his chase to go after Henry upon noticing him or being provoked by him on Level 14.
  • In Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders, the track plays in the Maintenance room, where the Projectionist lurks yet again to chase down Henry, and seconds before he starts a brief fight with Ink Bendy until meeting his fate.


  • The track's title is a portmanteau and pun for "real fear" with the word "reel" instead of "real".
