Music to Make Horror Movies By: Hildegard Knef

Oh, to be vaguely disaffected and totally European. Oh, to be Hildegard Knef, conqueror of Bacharach and Ella Fitzgerald!

Best known to discerning scare fiends for playing the destructively soulless Alraune in Alraune (1952), for fighting back against man eating seaweed in Hammer’s The Lost Continent (1968) and for giving Linda Blair the chills in 1988 horror cheese-fest Witchery, German born Hildegard Knef (1925-2002) was also a fairly popular chanteuse of the Marlene Dietrich variety. In fact, jazz legend Fitzgerald claimed Knef was “the greatest singer without a voice”. Her legacy is such that music wunderkinds Whirlpool Productions reunited in 2012, devoting an entire CD to remixes of her best known work.

Here, we take it old school, though. But even while Knef is declaring her passion with This Girl’s In Love With You, doesn’t she just seem perfectly bored and above it all? Divine!

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

Lovely Witchery!

Lovely Witchery!
