Music to Make Horror Movies By: Hilary Shepard

There were a number of ‘80s girl groups featuring actresses. The Pin-ups, Lisa London’s (The Naked Cage, Sudden Impact) group, had a minor hit with Just About a Dream. Big Trouble, fronted by Bobbie Eakes (The Bold and the Beautiful, All My Children), were produced by the legendary Giorgio Moroder and had a song featured on the Over The Top soundtrack.

American Girls, highlighted by the co-lead vocals of Hilary Shepard, was probably the most musically diverse of the three. With layered musicianship, their single album release on IRS Records was compared to The Go-Go’s, their label mates. But their songs, while pop, were actually a bit more complex than the fun New Wave stylings of their more famous counterparts. This can be evidenced in the harmonic structures of American Girl, which also found a place in celluloid-verse, being featured in the Anthony Michael Hall feature, Out of Bounds.

The striking Shepard, meanwhile, may be better known to genre fans for committing some aggressive antics in Scanner Cop, one of several sequels to David Cronenberg’s horror classic, Scanners. She also made notable appearances on the A Cup of Time episode of Friday the 13th, the Series and Anthony Perkin’s lone directing credit, the horror-comedy Lucky Stiff.

She unleashed some deadly id children on the world in The Brood, David Cronenberg’s gooey ode to marital woe. But the exquisite Samantha Eggar, thankfully, gave the world something much prettier to deal with via her rendition of At the Crossroads in the original Doctor Doolittle.

Nicely, Eggar, who has, rightfully, earned mistress of the macabre stripes for her participation in such projects as The Collector, The Uncanny, Demonoid, Curtains and The Dead Are Alive, is active, online, at www.samanthaeggar.net.
