Rob Zombie never sounded so beautiful! Acclaimed singer-songwriter Lissie’s cover of Zombie’s Dragula is one of the prettiest metal re-imaginings ever. You can take my word (but not my soul) for it! Directors Scott Beck and Bryan Woods obviously agree as they use this version to play over the end credits of their fun 2019 horror throwback Haunt.
Of course, when she isn’t providing perfect movie mood music, the divine Lissie is always possessing sonic dreamscapes at http://lissie.com/.
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
If you needed any more reasons to love the Soska Sisters, their appearance on the fun Shudder series The Corewill give you an ample supply.
Here, the lively, genre twisting twins spend their segment happily discussing their favorite castration sequences in horror films. They even end their time on the show in front of table that is laden with prosthetic cocks. Seemingly reveling in the (possibly humorous and uncomfortable) reactions that might arise from horror’s extreme bro culture, the filmmakers are again subverting the parameters of the world of terror.
Just as with films like Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary, this appearance helps to carve out alternative, namely queer and feministic, creative territory. One might even propose that by putting a focus on violence against men, particularly on where they are most vulnerable, they are altering an entertainment landscape that has balanced too long upon the subjugation of women, both physically and emotionally. Hopefully, in 2018, with their help, we will be able to prove that, however you identify, we are all in this together and that we can put the final nail in the coffin of the thought that torturing a half naked female for an hour and a half qualifies as proficient genre cinema.
