Hey, welcome back to the Friday Five! It's about to snow 100 ft. in Chicago, and I really want to get on the train before the world explodes, so here are five horror/music moments that have stuck with me.
Midnight Special - Twilight Zone
Although you can't see it in this scene, Danny Ackroyd has a butt that won’t quit. That's all really.
Six Different Ways - It
When I was making out with my high school boyfriend to the Cure in a dark basement, I never would’ve imagined this sugary sweet song would be associated with a group of scrappy kids cleaning a blood-soaked bathroom. Excellent music choice for an excellent movie adaptation.
Hip to be Square - American Psycho
I bought the Huey Lewis and the News - Sports LP at a local record store a few years back, and some clever soul had gone through the trouble of typing out the entire American Psycho diatribe on computer labels on the jacket. I hope they got a raise.
American Girl - Silence of the Lambs
If you don't refer to being kidnapped and thrown in a well as getting "Tom Petty'd" I honestly don't know what's wrong with you.
Roll With the Changes - Cabin in the Woods
Sadly, I couldn't find a clip of the actual movie scene of the control room folks celebrating and poor Dana being beaten to a pulp on the dock by Judah Buckner (spoilers, I guess) but it fits deliciously with this, my favorite REO Speedwagon song, and I SHRIEKED in the theater when it came on. This Joss Whedon decision almost makes Riley Finn worth it. Almost.
