Music to Make Horror Movies By: Michael Parks

Published May 14, 2017 by biggayhorrorfan

Michael Parks Tusk

He was marketed as the ‘60s heir to such rebels as James Dean and Marlon Brando. Despite multiple credits, the truly eclectic Michael Parks didn’t really find true fame until a role in From Dusk to Dawn revitalized him for a new generation, though.

Parks, who passed away at the age of 77 on May 9th (2017), also recently did amazing, soulful work in such genre projects as We Are What We Are and Tusk. As many potential heartthrobs before him, Parks released a number of albums in the early ‘70s, as well. Although, his quiet country and folk anthems will probably have a more enduring resonance than the pop styles of so many cute one hit wonders that came before and after him.

Nicely, Long Lonesome Highway, perhaps his best known number, seems to have a particular meaning now as he, quietly and peacefully, goes on his final, most enduring journey.

Kassie DePaiva: Evil Dead II Favorite Scores Emmy Nomination!

Published April 8, 2016 by biggayhorrorfan

DaPaiva delivered on a recent Castle episode, as well!


What could be better than a hurtling eyeball in the mouth? Well, probably not much. But Kassie DePaiva, whose spunky Bobby Joe in the seminal Evil Dead II suffered such a fate, has just been nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her work as the tragedy strewn Eve on Days of Our Lives. I imagine that honor has to rank pretty high up there, as well!

Indeed, DePaiva, whose other terror credits include 2013’s We Are What We Are, imbued all her storylines from her year and a half run on the show with an honest emotionality and sharp sense of the dramatic. Thus, this industry recognized honor is much deserved.

Nicely, the gorgeous True O’Brien, whom played Eve’s sensitive daughter Paige, was also nominated for her work, as well, in the Younger Actress category. Indeed, the fallout from the reveal of Eve’s affair with Paige’s boyfriend during the spring of 2015 was some of the best entertainment that the 50 year old soap had offered in awhile and kept ardent viewers glued to their television screens.


This year’s Daytime Emmy’s will occur on Sunday, May 1st. Here’s hoping that DePaiva and O’Brien take home the gold!
