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!

Happy Halloween 2016 My Fiends

“BOO!!!” I just wanted to take a moment and wish all of our readers a “Happy Halloween” today and hope that they had some fun during the just past “Halloweekend” as it was being referred to. As in the past, I’ve made sure to offer up a little themed photo for the day. The little Grim Reaper was an avenue discovery that I just loved and the mask, well that was also a discovery after a festival. Now its mine for future use.


Be good to the ghouls and goblins today and during the off time read some Horror themed comics or books, watch a scary movie and listen to some Horror Punk or Metal. We’ve got lots of Wednesday 13, Misfits and Lordi for you to enjoy on that end right here on the site if you need some referral recommendations. See you next time and before you go, let me know what your favorite costume worn ever was and paste it in the comments below (you should be able to do that last part).

Happy Halloween 2014 Metal Legions!!!

Hey it’s Halloween and I wish you a spooktacular day of fun and treats that only this day can bring you. As readers of the site know, I try to get a themed photo out to our masses each year. This used to be on the PiercingMetal Musings Blog but now all that content is a part of the main new format website. Here you go 🙂


This year’s photo comes care of my fiend Jay who snapped it while we were enjoying some other fiends bands at a local pub. The timing was perfect because I had not secured a proper mask like I have used in the past for this particular post. The creepy bugger I’m holding actually belonged to another friend, Rob. I love when things work out as I need them. So that being said, have a Happy Halloween, listen to some Horror Punk or other musical artists that go bump in the night. May I suggest some Misfits, Wednesday 13, Alice Cooper and The Others? Good stuff there.

For this interested in this sort of thing, my annual Halloween post is currently live on my Piercing Ken site, just click on the logo below to be taken to it. It’s something that I like to do each year over there since its such a fun day for me.
