If rock ‘n roll and horror movies go hand in hand, then the late, lamented Little Richard was the king of both genres. His great showmanship and historic run of hits resulted in his songs being included on the soundtracks of such ‘80s classics as Christine and Predator.

Perhaps more importantly, Richard’s outrageous flamboyance helped pave the way for many in the LGBTQIA community, a legacy that means just as much as all the amazing music that he left behind.

When is it too darn hot? Well…when visiting Jamaica in the off season or, perhaps, when a tropical phenomenon attacks the East Coast.
Yep, in 2007’s Disaster Zone: Volcano in New York, the city that never sleeps bubbles and warps beneath some of the worst technical lava effects ever put on top of celluloid! As an overzealous scientist tapping into the earth’s core, perennial bad guy Michael Ironside (Scanners, Visiting Hours) steals the show, here. Meanwhile (Christine princess) Alexandra Paul leads the rest of the over earnest cast.
The best moment in this Sci Fi masterpiece? When one of Costas Mandylor’s (Saw series) sand hog worker’s guts spill out due to volcanic laced water – a surprising moment of grue in this fairly tame production.
Runner up: When a group of friendly homeless guys expire due to the gases emitted from the build up of the eruption. Some dudes just can’t catch a break, no?
Oh, well. Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
