Coming out a bisexual in an interview with Mother Jones in 1985, musician Dave Wakeling has often proven himself to be ahead of the bar, creatively and culturally. Best known for being an integral member of such popular New Wave bands as English Beat and General Public, he has also built a solid career for himself as a solo musician and composer.
The LGBTQIA community may know him best for General Public’s cover of I’ll Take You There, a song that was prominently featured in the queer-centric Threesome. Horror enthusiasts, especially those who love a Rosemary’s Baby inspired possession tale, may remember him for the inclusion of GP’s classic Tenderness in Devil’s Due, a recent found footage kiddo’s-gone-bad offering.
It is years into my confirmed status as an agnostic – yet the thought of Satan still freaks me out! Being raised by a virulent gang of lesbian prostitute nuns will have some collateral damage!
Is he facing down Satan – OR just waiting for me?
Therefore, I am strangely titillated by the arrival tomorrow (Friday, 1/17/14) of the newest baby hell-spawn flick Devil’s Due. I am hopeful, despite its found footage origins, to experience some real spills (because I’m klutzy) and chills!
And if worse comes to worse, the presence of Friday Night Light‘s Zach Gilford (who is, also, confirmed as a cast member for Purge 2) and handsome Robert Belushi (last year’s Heebie Jeebies and 2009’s Sorority Row) will, at the very least, supply some eye candy for viewers with inclinations much like myself!
So, grab your black cradles and follow this film’s red tinged progress at
