Music to Make Horror Movies By: Kurtis Mantronik

At 6’6”, Kurtis Mantronik could certainly qualify, via physical stats alone, as one of the Kings of Hip-Hop and Dance music. But his supreme talents as a producer, DJ and writer, including a stint as the founder of the legendary Mantronix, place him fully in that category, as well.

The inclusion of his Big Band B-Boy on the Return of the Living Dead II soundtrack has also earned him a place in horror movie history, but this Jamaican-Arabian wonder is continually reinventing himself (as a lifetime honoree in the arts) at http://www.kurtismantronik.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/KurtisMantronixOfficial.

Apollonia

After winning Prince’s heart in Purple Rain, the magnificent Apollonia (Kotera) went onto terrorize genre veterans Mark Hamill and Amanda Wyss with her supernatural ways in Black Magic Woman.

Before this occult take on Fatal Attraction, though, this always striking entertainer showed her sweeter side with the fun and energetic Since I Fell For You from her underrated debut album.

A humanitarian who has devoted time to such organizations as GLAAD, Apollonia is working on her memoir and can be followed at https://www.apolloniakotero.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/ApolloniaKoteroOfficial.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Joyce Sims

Joyce Sims Main

With its Phantom of the Opera style opening, Joyce Sims’ Come Into My Life burned up the dance floors in the late ‘80s and seemed the perfect song to be featured in a horror film. A few years later the producers of Species did include the popular track in a significant scene with Natasha Henstridge’s deadly Sil.

Sims caressed the keyboards with such dance legends as Mantronix, who produced a number of her most popular tunes, and is still creating new music and performing at nostalgia fests. More information on her activity is available at https://www.joycesimsonline.com/.

Music to Make Horror Movies By – Little Boots

Published September 29, 2019 by biggayhorrorfan

Tenth anniversary analysis articles on Jennifer’s Body, the feminist horror buddy flick scripted by Diablo Cody, have focused on the much renewed appreciation brewing for this initially maligned exercise in fright making. (For the record…I loved it from the get go and saw it twice in the theater before it quickly disappeared from the screens.)

Besides its energetic performances and enthusiastic direction, the film also featured a killer soundtrack. One of the most notable numbers was the perky yet strangely ominous New in Town, sassily essayed by the unforgettable Little Boots.

Perfectly capturing the film’s essence with that song, Little Boots is now winning over fans’ hearts anew while touring in celebration of Hands, the album that initially featured this tune.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Debbie Deb and Ma

Published June 23, 2019 by biggayhorrorfan

Debbie Deb

The classic freestyle fun maker Lookout Weekend has been covered and/or sampled by everyone from Kelis to Janet Jackson. Nicely, it has also recently been given a glorious nod in Ma, this summer’s fun, twisted horror joy ride.

The inclusion is especially important as Debbie Deb, the song’s jubilant vocalist, along with many other of her dance music contemporaries, was rarely given the credit she deserved. Fans of this life filled musical style will surely recall how Deb was often replaced by models on the covers of her singles and lip syncing actresses at live music events.

But she is taking the world by command now. You can help celebrate her soundtrack success at https://www.facebook.com/therealdebbiedeb/ and at a series of concert dates throughout the rest of the year!
