Remember the band Letters to Cleo? If so, odds are you grew up in the 1990s. Few bands scream “Nineties” like Letters to Cleo. They were a perfect choice to provide a B-Sides for a motion picture about teenage witches just learning their craft.
You’ve seen him play Dracula and Sherlock Holmes, Sith lords and dark wizards, but have you ever heard Christopher Lee sing... about booze? And doing so in an effort to corrupt an alcoholic superhero into falling off the wagon? While surrounded by sexy back-up dancers and a goblin?
As the world prepares to celebrate Shout Factory’s release of Night of the Comet on Blu-ray, now seems as good a time as any to celebrate one of the great b-movies of the Eighties by dipping into its soundtrack for a B-Sides.
At long last - the notorious rappin' TV ad for Eve of Destruction that boasted an awesomely cheesy rap song explaining the flick’s premise. Few who saw this commercial that ran for only two weeks leading up to the film's release in January 1991 have ever forgotten it. Hero... Before the clock hits zero!
My Demon Lover was the motion picture that took the phrase “horny little devil” to its logical conclusion by having a cursed man transform into a crazed demonic monster whenever he became sexually aroused.
If you think a lot of people have been questioning the point of (another) Carrie remake, then imagine what those crazy little voices were saying in 1999 when The Rage: Carrie 2 opened in theaters. A sequel to Carrie that Stephen King wasn’t involved with coming 23 years after the original film? Huh?
We gave you a preview of the haunts at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare, and Dread Central ventured back out to the Fairplex in Pomona, CA, for the red carpet and opening night festivities.
A naked serial killer is terrorizing Los Angeles, murdering a plethora of beautiful young women. But now he’s targeting Charles Bronson’s daughter, and Bronson has a snub-nosed revolver targeting the psycho-sexual slasher...
A behind-the-scenes video for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted attraction, which runs October 10-November 2 (Thu-Sun only) in Pomona, CA, has arrived; and we have it for you right here! Hell yeah!
When a haunt begins with you walking up to a giant pair of legs and squeezing your way into an oversized vagina, you know you’re in for some serious shit. That’s what Dread Central is greeted with when we step foot on the FEARplex to preview Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare!
As I began to write this B-Sides, it suddenly hit me that if any sci-fi movie from the Eighties deserves a special edition Blu-ray, it’s The Hidden. Why is that Blu-ray being hidden from the waiting public? The theme song is pretty good, too.
With so much talk of leaked government secrets and spying, Spies Like Us seems overdue for the B-Sides treatment. With Paul McCartney singing the theme song to a Dan Aykroyd/Chevy Chase comedy, this is probably more of an A-Side than a B-Side.
This B-Sides bewilders me. If ever a song sounded like it was tailor-made for an early Eighties teen sex comedy, it’s “You’re a Cool Dude.” Instead it comes to us from a late Eighties slasher flick about teens in the Minnesota woods getting hacked up by a Viking Berserker.
With Shout! Factory releasing Scanners II: The New Order and Scanners III: The Takeover in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack this week, I can think of no better time to bust out a real B-Sides gem that has toiled in obscurity for far too long: “Mind to Mind.”
A new teaser video for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted attraction, which runs October 10-November 2 (Thu-Sun only) in Pomona, CA, has arrived; and we have it for you right here! Hell yeah!
