Music to Make Horror Movies By: Connie Smith, “Strange”

Published September 21, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

If there is one thing that strikes terror in the heart of certain big gay horror fans of every generation, it’s dating and… (b-r-r, shiver) romance! Just how DO you navigate that shit?

Even gorgeous, big voiced 60s country-pop siren Connie Smith, noted as one of Dolly Parton’s favorite vocalists, had multiple troubles traversing the corridors of heart, as evidenced by her haunting take on the White-Fox tune Strange. Beware!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Mater Suspiria Vision

mater suspiria vision
Whenever I feel the need to strap some Princess Leia dough rolls onto the side of my head (a la Argento favorite, the grand and striking Barbara Magnolfi), I always throw on some Mater Suspiria Vision. It always puts me in the right frame of mind, immediately

Inspired by ghost trance rhythms and Hansel and Gretel, this Euro collective adds dense layers of macabre fever to everyone’s favorite Italian terror soundtrack dreams – and is sure to put all wailing children to sleep…permanently.

Be sure to keep up with all of this spooky crew’s supernatural undertones at and

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Patti Page

patti page
“Into a lonely life…wearing the black dress of sorrow”

She should be known as the Queen of Everything! For while Patti Page is best known to old school terror lovers as the warbler of the theme song to Hush…Hush…Sweet Charlotte (although her version does not appear in the film itself), she mastered everything from country (Detour) to MOR pop (Tennessee Waltz)to mild rock-n-roll (Most People Get Married). She was, also, the high priestess of the novelty song with both schmaltzy sweetness (How Much is that Doggie in the Window?) and truly bizarre outings (The Mama Doll Song) littered among her offerings.

Interestingly, she was often noted for successfully multi-tracking her voice, as well. (Take that, Britney Spears!)This technique was put to especially good use in the gothic western story song, One of Us Will Weep Tonight:

So, drape yourself in dark lace and…Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Gale Garnett

gale mad
She was the seductive Francesca in the classic, puppet driven Mad Monster Party and felt the fiery wraith of a bunch of (crispy) tots in 1980 cult cheese fest The Children. But to many, the divinely groovy Gale Garnett was a swinging 60s songstress, best known for that sweetly delivered ode to romantic freedom We’ll Sing in the Sunshine.

Here, the lovely, psychedelically tinged Where Do You Go To Go Away finds the dreamy voiced wonder exploring foreign lands – including the cool (and sexy) reaches of hell!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game (Tne Marvelettes)

Published August 24, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Somebody better lock these chicks up! This is filthy!

Indeed, The Marvelettes take on Smokey Robinson’s classic track The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game is full of menacing slink. In fact, Wanda Rogers’ seductive lead vocal would probably put some fear into even the most determined monster. And I don’t mean Motown maestro Berry Gordy (who, traditionally, robbed these amazing women of the majority of the group’s profits) – though, I suppose, ultimately, that wouldn’t be far off base!

Oh, well… For now, just listen and enjoy!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Slant 6

Published August 17, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Before the dirt was piled upon the dissonant grave created by (Washington D.C. based) female trio Slant 6, they quickly released an EP that asked the question What Kind of Monster Are You? and embodied un-deadly cover antics on their final (awesomely titled) recording Inzombia!

In existence for a mere three years (1992-1995), the amazingly creative Christina Billotte (now rumored to be a ceramics artist), the magnetic Myra Power and the ecstatic-ly limber Marge Marshall, ultimately, gave us spookily enhanced, unforgettable memories of sonic awesomeness.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: (The Divine) Ronee Blakley!

Published August 10, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

ronee welcome
She’s conquered the horrors of Return to Salem’s Lot and gave Freddy the what-for (at least initially) in the iconic (original) A Nightmare on Elm Street. But, for those who have adored the acclaimed music of eclectic wonder Ronee Blakley, this probably came as no surprise.

Need a New Sun Rising from her beautifully realized recording Welcome is a poetically potent reminder of life’s beauty and an amazing hymn to determined survival. In fact, this layered masterpiece could serve as an empowering theme song for all the final girls who conquer the uncompromising horrors of many a slasher classic.

Be sure to revel in all Blakley has to offer at
