A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads! In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week.
So being that Halloween is just around the corner, I'm going to pisr some songs that can be found in widely popular horror films. Either they were a theme, a song used to spice up the pace of the film, or were just flat out awesome. So let's get this ball rolling, shall we?
*FYI: I apologize if certain songs don't sit well with any of the readers. But most of these songs are going to be a little "edgy" so this is just a warning in case anything happens.*
If anyone has ever seen Stephen Kings, Pet Cemetery, then you know how creepy that film can truly be. But I love how the punk-rock band took the elements of that film and fit it nicely into a song. Plus it's great for anyone who just wants a decent rock song for Halloween.
Okay so every time since I was about 13. this theme always made me think of one word: Zombies! It was more creepy to listen to it at night because of the imagery that it provokes; especially if you've seen the movie. It has that classic 70's tempo of beats, but it adds that scary sounds that Romero was very smart when creating a "feeling" for his film.
How many remember hearing this and suddenly feeling really freaked out or excited when it came on the tv or a movie screen? I know that my own mother gets freaked out after hearing it for 5 seconds. This theme song invokes certain fear in people to the point that their own mind plays tricks on them. Ironically it was only a movie, but still none the less, it happens.
I can say this is one of many songs I believe may not be for everyone. It's mostly due to how the song starts out. It has stuff that kids shouldn't hear is all I'm saying. But this song is used from the movie of the same name that was also directed and written by Rob Zombie himself. If you don't like a lot of blood or really psychological crazy horror, then I advise to not see this movie. But this song would really work for anyone who does a haunted house for an older group of people. Kind of for those waiting on line because of the type of feeling it can invoke: fear.
I would have posted the video, but then I remember that alone might give some people nightmares. This was back when he was doing extreme over the top scary stuff in such a way that it resembled something out of a horror movie. Anyway, this song was features on the remake of "House on Haunted Hill", during the scene of the limos driving up to the hospital. This song was also featured on an episode of "Dawson Creek" for a halloween'esque theme. It certainly adds a vibe of darkness to it, which Halloween does bring, so I thought it was fitting compared to some of the other songs out there.
