Music to Make Horror Movies By: Vikki Carr

Published October 5, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

While the glorious (and extremely classy) Vikki Carr’s exploitation credits are limited – she provided the singing voice for Cyd Charisse in the 60s spy caper Matt Helm and makes an appearance on the soundtrack for Point of No Return, the American remake of La Femme Nikita – she definitely nails the gritty essence of such anti-heroes as The Evil Dead’s Ash, Hardware’s Moses and Demon Knight’s Brayker with her take on Kris Kristofferson’s cigarette stained Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down.

Captured on her sophisticated Nashville By Carr, her version even earned the respect of the legendary Johnny Cash:

The perfect coda for a survivor’s despair, Carr’s subtly dramatic take would fit perfectly playing over the end titles of many a weary splatter fest.


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