What makes a good horror movie even better? I'll tell ya-Rock and Roll baby! Oh yeah! Tuning up my spooky air guitar!
This first one is from my teenage years, when I was a disgruntled punk rocker. I had the soundtrack when I was young and thought I was so tough, playing it on my cassette player. What? It was cool! Don't judge! Anyhoo, The Return of the Living Dead is over the top, gory and down right silly. It's chocked full of ridiculous giggles and slimy zombies. I don't think I really need to explain the story...chemicals....dead coming back to life...brains...yadda, yadda, yadda.. This movie is not for family viewing but if you are having a few friends over and don't want anything too scary-check it out. The Damned, 45 Grave and The Cramps lend their funky lyrics to this awesome soundtrack.
Speaking of not judging, this next movie is so bad. I just know OMP is going to say, "Really Pam? I don't think I can be seen in public with you anymore." Just for the record, he will be seen with me and he will love it! Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, my next bad pick. KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park is so awful but it has KISS in it! I can't help it! It's KISS! This was a television movie in which KISS must use their super powers to fight off an evil inventor and save the world. I know, I know...it's bad, but it's KISS!
How many of you grew up in the 80's? How many of you had a crush on almost all the cuties from The Lost Boys? Don't lie, you know you did and you were always wondering why Jami Gertz got to hang with the hotties, I mean, you were much cuter than her with your mall claw bangs and LA Gear shoes! Lost Boys, just like the ones mentioned above, had an excellent soundtrack with the likes of Echo and the Bunnymen and INXS. The best part about this vampire movie (besides the cute vampires) was that they weren't all "poor me....I sparkle," they were rough and tough and had style. The icing on the cake was this movie had the Coreys in it. 1980's heaven, baby!
Whether you are shredding your axe or wielding it, these movies are for you! They will get your fist pumping and bring a giggle or two. Rock on my spooky little monsters!
