When you’re a possessed killer doll there is only one thing that you need, besides an innocent soul or two to take over (of course), and that is — a band of gold. Thankfully, for the over ominous Annabelle that’s exactly what she receives in the first few minutes of her latest offering, Annabelle Comes Home. As the Warrens, the central couple of this film series, drive our deadly inanimate lass off to her final resting place, Freda Payne’s classic song of heartbreak pops up on the radio.
Of course, Annabelle being Annabelle, she might prefer a still sweet yet harder edged cover version like the one provided by Belinda Carlisle, the sassily magnetic leader of the Go-Go’s.
But whatever version she ultimately chooses, there is one thing for certain -this mistress of mayhem definitely has good taste!
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
Known as one of the most dynamic musicians to emerge from the punk scene, long term Go-Go’s rhythm guitarist Jane Wiedlin has also had a much appreciated cult film career. Her appearances as actress include fun bits in Clue, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventureand Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
Horror geeks, meanwhile, definitely got a vibrant case of ear worm after hearing her song Blue Kiss, from her debut solo album, used in the party scene of Fred Dekker’s cult horror classic Night of the Creeps.
It’s the end of Pride Month and you’re probably still go-go-going!
But if you need to catch your breath for a moment, feel free to take a second and listen to the latest episode of Dagger Cast with the amazing Kyra Leigh.

We discuss Sleepaway Camp, Dressed to Killand how Leigh feels the Trans Community should fit into upcoming genre films. It’s an important and informative talk fueled by her grand heart and infectious spirit.
