Music to Make Horror Movies By: Atanas Ilitch

As the Driller Killer in Slumber Party Massacre 2, Atanas Ilitch made a definitive impression on slasher movie lovers worldwide. Radiating with hip James Dean swerve and a sense of New Wave cool, Ilitch made killing seem as quick and easy as a cheesy pop song here.

But Ilitch’s personal history is even more colorful than his best known onscreen role. The scion of a powerful Detroit based business dynasty, he was also reportedly considered for the role of James Bond in the ‘80s. His musicality was a prime consideration to the producers and, in preparation for playing the iconic spy, he recorded a number of songs with espionage style theatrics. Upon losing the role to Timothy Dalton, he took such imaginings as Dark Night, Crazy in the Dark and Shoot the Gun and put them on an album called Shadows. Let’s Live Together was one of the more romantic offerings on display there.

Surviving a battle with cancer in his early 40s, Ilitch is, assumedly, still providing the citizens of Michigan with interesting musical avenues via his various corporate undertakings.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Judy Garland

Besides her famed enactment of Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy, arguably one of cinema’s first final girls, and a one-off episode of the radio show Suspense (in which she played a threatened waitress), performing powerhouse Judy Garland is not known for works of terror.

But her 1961 cut Sweet Danger takes a slightly frightening look at the powers of love. Featuring a menace of background horns, a la John Barry, this number could have fit perfectly in any number of James Bond seduction scenes.
