Happy Halloween 2017: Rockers Divulge Their Favorite Horror Films

It’s Halloween and with this post I am giving you a treat that will not promote tooth decay nor lead you to issues with your waistline. In the spirit of my inquiries that featured “Music Resolutions”; I’ve polled a number of Metal and Rock musicians in my world and asked them “What is your favorite Horror movie and why”. So get some popcorn, dim the lights and sit under a cozy blanket as we learn of some awesome talents favorite creepy film. It’s a lengthy list but splitting this one into parts didn’t make sense. Let’s go.

Chris Caffery (Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra): “Halloween”. Because it was the only movie that not only scared me in the theaters it scared me afterwards in real life. In my opinion it’s the best horror film ever made. In the sense of true horror. A real killer. There was no superhuman bs in the first one. Just pure evil.

Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow): From old films was “Dracula”… I really like the atmosphere and as a kid I was a big fan of vampires. The movie that scared my ass off the most and had nightmares for days with, were “The Ring” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”…I don’t think I’ll ever see them twice again ??

Jimmy Kunes (Cactus): God there’s so many. “Fearless Vampire Killers”, I know it’s a spoof. But what a film!!!

Elise Ryd (Amaranthe): “The Shining”. Those two kids are the most scary thing I’ve seen. And I don’t like that dude Johnny towards the end. “Here’s Johnny” ? And this is true.. Every time I’m in a hotel with long corridors I expect those kids to show up in the end of the hallway. Haha, that image is haunting me, STILL! It’s Enshrined in my memory.

Archie Kuosmanen (Santa Cruz): Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining because it’s the undisputed heavyweight champion of horror flicks!

“All You Need Is Blood” by Beatallica

Artist: Beatallica
Title: “All You Need Is Blood”
Label: Oglio Records
Release Date: 5/20/2008
Genre: Mashup Metal
Rating: 3/5

After this one I was pretty sure that I had heard everything and if this is not truly the case then I can at least say that I have heard ALMOST everything in about thirteen different languages. Now there might be some readers who I have already thrown off with this rather absurd opening statement but it had to be said after I had finished listening to the new Beatallica mega-single “All You Need Is Blood”. In typical Beatallica fashion the band that became famous for successfully mashing up the music of the Beatles with that of Metallica have returned with some teaser music to enjoy before they unleash their next “mash-terpiece” upon an unsuspecting world. This time around the guys only give us one song and of course it’s a slightly morphed homage to the classic “All You Need Is Love” and to give everyone their money’s worth the boys do it twelve more times on the release. I’m sure that you’re saying to yourself “one song thirteen times, oh the humanity of it all” and if that would be perfect if this is all that the band did but doing things normally would not make them Beatallica. Instead the band called upon their worldwide legions of fans, the “Beatallibangers” and asked them to contribute translated lyrics to the song in their native tongue. Sounds interesting right? Well as a matter of fact it is but it’s truly a bizarre thing to hear the many different languages being applied to something like this.
