Music to Make Horror Movies By – Katharine McPhee

Published December 6, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

 

As Beth Mazza in 2011’s toothy horror Shark Night, Katharine McPhee got a little upset when she learned she was about to be force fed to a pool of cookie cutter sharks. There is nothing worse for a good tan line, huh?

Of course, this former American Idol contestant is, also, a celebrated pop singer and in that world the only thing that causes that much upset is…romance. Hence the title track of this talented lass’ new CD is Hysteria, describing the condition she finds herself in when confronted with a certain sexy someone whom she will never be able to fully possess. Sad – yet somehow dance worthy here.

Be sure to keep up with the eclectic McPhee, who has continued to act on such television shows as Smash and (the current, popular) Scorpion, at https://twitter.com/katharinemcphee and www.katharinemcphee.net.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Ketty Lester

Published November 29, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

Ketty 3Even though William Marshall put the bite on her tough talking cab driver Juanita Jones in Blacula, the exquisite Ketty Lester always knew how to put her mark on a song.

 

Best known for her golden hit Love Letters, used to macabre effect in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, Lester  puts a smoky, subtle emphasize on the more sinister aspects of romance with her rocking take on Sweet Torture.

 

Slink into this blissful agony now!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Elke Sommer

Published November 22, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

The luscious Elke Sommer battled monstrous creeps and dodgy American editors in such Bava classics as Baron Blood, Lisa and the Devil (and its stateside reworking) The House of Exorcism. But according to one of the numbers on her euro-soaked MGM album, Love in Any Language, nothing haunted our fair lass more than unrequited love.

While it’s hard to believe anyone could deny this German born cupcake anything, one listen to her mournfully acknowledging I Know You Don’t Want Me – and you know it has to be true. elke album cover

Robyn Loau – “The Last Time”

Published October 5, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

hamish
As the GLBT community finally gains its rights and full respects in the eyes of the law, it seems like the worst time to genuflect before its faults. But, humanity is a complex and varied beast and, for years now, queer publications have covered the very harrowing (and unfortunately) truthful stories of domestic violence that occur in same sex relationships.

Recently, director-writer Hamish Downie and cinematographer Paul Lemming gave these circumstances a very Silent Hill twist with their video for singer Robyn Loau’s The Last Time. Imbued with a restrained toxicity, this tale of a lesbian couple caught in a loop of violence, is, ultimately, haunting on many levels.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sue Thompson, “Norman”

Published September 27, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

The name Norman may be ubiquitous with Hitchcock and Psycho, but it, also, finds sweet pervasiveness with 60s pop and country star Sue Thompson.

Already in her mid-30s, Thompson’s hits, Sad Movies and Norman, found her competing, successfully, with such teen rivals as Brenda Lee, Lesley Gore and Connie Francis.

Of course, the number we are concerned with here, has nothing to do with Anthony Perkins’ most famous portrayal, but it does put a certain twist on things if we imagine that it does.

Hmmm…so what exactly is that dress you’re making for Norman really made of, Sue?!?

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Lisa London and The Pinups

Eternally sexy Lisa London, who has been popping up in such David DeCoteau features as 3 Wicked Witches and Devilish Charm, as of late, knows eclecticism is the way to go.

While she faced down violent action in such 80s features as Sudden Impact, The Naked Cage and W.A.R.: Women Against Rape, she, also, spent plenty of time providing smooth harmonies for the sweet girl group, The Pinups.

Here’s a prime example:

Now, that’s a pillow-y flashback!
