If music really is the food of love then Tuesday Knight is dining happy. The A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master star has released numerous recordings over the years, including her popular ANOES 4 theme song. Of course, rhythm lives in her blood. Knight’s father, Baker, was a talented songwriter whose material was covered by everyone from Paul McCartney to Frank Sinatra.

Showing familial pride, Knight covered Lonesome Town, one of her father’s most recognized tunes on The Starlet, a third season episode of the popular detective series Matlock. This fun episode, featuring such stalwarts as Roddy McDowall and Anne Francis, revolves around the murder of a conniving contestant at a beauty contest. Tuesday M1

As the perky Abby Smith, a hopeful participant, Knight radiates with sweetness in the background of several ensemble set-ups. That her cohorts here include DeepStar Six’s Nia Peeples (Fame), Rebecca Staab (the Invisible Girl in the Roger Corman produced Fantastic Four) and (long term The Young and the Restless cast member)Tonya Williams only sweetens the pot.

Nicely, she is finally given primary focus as she, lovingly, performs her father’s lyrics. It’s a brief yet potent appearance and a boon to devoted Freddy Krueger lovers everywhere.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Bananarama

Published February 11, 2018 by biggayhorrorfan

Bananarama

Unlike contemporaries like Blondie or The Divinyls, Bananarama never appeared on the soundtrack for A Nightmare on Elm Street flick. That’s unfortunate because the exuberant trio, well known for their cover of Venus, definitely showed more than “pure desire” with tracks like Cruel Summer and Dance with a Stranger.

In fact, the haunting Stranger, which appeared on their best selling 1986 album True Confessions, hints at possible suicide and/or deadly repercussions due to a broken heart.

The beloved group, currently alternating between a longstanding duo and the original line-up, is still making music as of this day, though, so Krueger fans may eventually get a longed for sonic paycheck.

Tamara Glynn in Freddy’s Nightmares

Published August 18, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan


Tamara 1

Full of sweetly organic presence, Tamara Glynn not only enlivened Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Meyers, as the feisty yet vulnerable Samantha, in the late 80s, she also danced around another terror icon in the Love Stinks episode of Freddy’s Nightmares.

Tamara 2Endearing and genuine, Glynn’s Laura here only wants to be the recipient of athlete Adam’s (John Washington, a real life descendent of the first president) genuine devotion. Of course, when Adam slips up and tells another girl that he loves her, this episode becomes a creepily feminist look at relationships.

Since this is Krueger’s universe, Adam soon learns the hard way that a woman’s revenge can be quite deadly, in real and in dream life. In fact, in the episode’s most memorable moment, Adam imagines that a demented Laura, gleefully enacted by Glynn, has taken a sharp effort to sever their eternal bond. This instance, nicely, illustrates how Glynn, who also made appearances on Knots Landing, Miami Vice and Super Force, was able to play many shades on the spectrum of humanity and helps prove why she is still a fan favorite today.Tamara 3
