Music to Make Horror Movies By: Premier Quartet

Published May 31, 2020 by biggayhorrorfan


Sometimes classic only goes with classic. If nothing says the Halloween season like the Premier Quartet’s That Syncopated Boogie-Boo than nothing says horror like the Amityville house.

Thus, director Henrique Couto smartly ends Amityville No Escape, his entry in the long line of sequels based around this spooky landmark, with the Quartet’s unexpectedly fun, eternally jumping tune.

Inventively utilizing different styles of film throughout its running time, this indie found footage nightmare is available at Couto’s Store Envy site, https://www.storenvy.com/products/29194798-amityville-no-escape-limited-edition-blu-ray-dvd-combo-with-reversible-artw.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Mary Lou Lord

Published April 26, 2020 by biggayhorrorfan


In the name of diversity, it is always nice to find musical efforts with genre themes that aren’t overwhelmed by heavy metal antics or thoroughly seared by moody gothic rhythms.

Indeed, Mary Lou Lord, one of alt-pop’s brightest lights, released an amazing 1996 Kill Rock Stars EP called Martian Saints!

Besides the obvious themes of science fiction and emerald streaked creatures from beyond, Lord embraces the concepts of Halloween and the devil while also exploring the tyranny against witchcraft here. Her bright cover of Elliot Smith’s I Figured You Out is also a highpoint, signifying the emotional horrors that one must endure, as well. Thus, the work as a whole is a sonic delight from start to finish and well worth checking out.

Indeed, all of Lord’s output, highlighted by her frequent collaborations with Bevis Frond’s Nick Saloman, should be a part of every smart music lover’s vocabulary.
