Music to Make Horror Movies By: Got A Girl

Published January 11, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

got a girl
She’s a little bit Nancy Sinatra (or, perhaps, more accurately Francoise Hardy)…and a little bit sequel queen. Indeed, with roles in The Ring 2, Final Destination 3 and re-imaginings of Black Christmas and The Thing, the lovely Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been one of the most visible actresses in the terror genre since the millennium struck red.

Always engaging, Winstead, whose other genre credits include Wolf Lake and Death Proof, has recently formed Got A Girl with Dan the Automator. Focused on their love of 60s beats and French pop, their collaboration is a swirling delight.

Filled with odd strokes of tension and a John Barry-like flair, did we live too fast, the first track off their full length offering i love you but i must drive off this cliff now is, truly, one of their best moments.

Now, be sure to slink over to, as well.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Judy Garland

Published August 3, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

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.

Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
