The Power of Music Compels You: Four Awesome Exorcist-Inspired Music Videos!

Few horror movies have been referenced, paid homage to and parodied more over the years than The Exorcist, which turned the ripe old age of 40 just last year. Chock full of imagery that’s equal parts memorable and terrifying, from the titular character arriving at the home of a possessed young girl to that possessed


Ode to the End Credits Song

Not exclusive to horror movies, but especially prevalent in horror movies through the late 80s and early 90s, we were treated to a special “made just for the movie” end credits rap or rock song. Sometimes, just a fun and bizarre mix. For reasons I don’t understand, this had become a sort of unspoken Hollywood



Manhunter is far and above, my most favorite film of all time, favorite soundtrack, introduced me to my favorite band Shriekback, and one of my favorite directors Michael Mann.

A Dusk Till Dawn Halloween

Just got done listening to this Halloween mix. Very eclectic in a good way. As the name would suggest, there is indeed a very strong From Dusk Till Dawn tone to it.

October 1st — I went and saw Rob Zombie (one of my favorite bands) play and there couldn’t have been a better way to get it all started. Marilyn Manson opened, which was a perfect fit and Rob

The Saddest Music in the World

And furthermore, the most beautiful songs in the entire world. I’ve seen similar articles, lists, and so on, and have always been disappointed. Perhaps sadness is extremely subjective? Perhaps some don’t know what true sadness is? I think true sadness has no face, no description, and no one to describe the phenomenon to us. Similar


Halloween Music to Drive Deep in the Woods To

I’ve got a chance to listen to the new album Strange Tales for Late at Night by Casey Redmond. Smooth rockabilly with throwback to great songs like Purple People Eater.   If you’d like to pick up the album or learn more about Casey Redmond head over to:
