B-Sides is typically a weekend column, but I couldn’t let Valentine’s Day slide without presenting the greatest Valentine horror B-Sides of all. If you haven’t already guessed “The Ballad of Harry Warden” from the original My Bloody Valentine, then you more than anyone else need to read on.
This Valentine’s weekend B-Sides video comes from a motion picture that dares ask the burning question: Would you be willing to die for a chance to have sex with Tawny Kitaen? Keep in mind we’re talking about 1986 Tawny Kitaen, the slithering on the hood of a car in a Whitesnake video Tawny Kitaen when she was at the peak of her Tawny-ness.
Today’s B-Sides has it all: explosions, more explosions, gunfire, more gunfire, vehicles crashing through gates, helicopter escapes, children longing for their Rambo-esque father to come home, more explosions, more gunfire, and all of it is set to a rocking Eighties theme song that sounds like it could have been composed by a Krokus tribute band.
A trippy, late 1960’s rock song that blends acid rock with an Etherwave theremin has the potential to be awesome as is. Make that song about killer green slime from outer space, and you have one of the greatest B-Sides of all time. It’s Green Slime time!
We love things that are in the "public domain". They allow artists to use existing art as a launching point for their own creations, and that's never a bad thing in our book. Case in point: Dallas-based industrial twosome Frausun have created an original score to accompany Lon Chaney's classic The Phantom of the Opera. After performing the score live at popular Dallas venue La Grange, they have now released the film complete with the new score.
B-Sides is arriving a little early this weekend because there’s no way I’m letting Friday the 13th pass without having a musical interlude in honor of Mr. Voorhees. The theme song to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning may not have been written specifically for the film, but if ever there was a man with no life in his eyes, it’s Jason.
Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie is so reprehensibly bad it’s the movie Troll 2 watches to feel better about itself. Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie is the kind of bad movie that’s so bad it gives bad movies a bad name. If you don’t believe me, then just try to sit through this musical number from the film.
This weekend’s B-Sides song makes me feel like I can accomplish something. What exactly, I’m not sure. But damnit, listening to “Break the Ice” from the motion picture Rad makes me want to do something, anything, and the power of John Farham’s stirring vocals makes me believe I can do it – whatever “it” is.
Imagine a Die Hard scenario set aboard a passenger plane. Imagine if the John McClain of the movie was based on Marilyn Manson. Imagine if the terrorists were a Satanic cult trying to bring about hell on earth. If you’ve ever seen Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal, you weren’t imagining it.
A year and a half ago or so we first told you about the White Colar Sideshow, a musical performance group that uses horror imagery and the sound of creative percussion to impart a message of horror and redemption. Now that WCS has officially retired their first production and begun recording the follow-up, "The WitcHunt", we have an update.
If you were to ask me to list the absolute worst movies I have ever subjected myself to and I failed to list Chud II: Bud the Chud near the top of that list, it is only because I’ve worked very hard to try to block the memory of that rancid film from my mind. And yet, here I am paying homage to the film’s corny theme song. Am I a masochist or what?
I don't want to say the rap song that plays during to closing credits of The Monster Squad is cheesy, but if it were any cheesier, listening to it would be considered hazardous to the health of people that suffer from lactose intolerance.
With this being the weekend that the first half of the final installment in The Twilight Saga opens in theaters and the immortal love story of Edward and Bella culminates with marriage, rough sex, a half-breed baby, and infinity as vampire man and wife, it just seemed appropriate I pick a b-movie ditty titled “All Eternity Blues” about vampires wanting out of their centuries old marriage.
If the name Valora rings a bell, it may be from our coverage of the band's digital comic (look for Chapter 3 soon), but now we have something different. They've released a video for the first single from their debut album, "I Waited for You", and in that its tone is reflective of frontwoman Syd Duran's love of horror films, she took time out of her busy schedule to prepare a list of her Top Ten favorites just for Dread Central readers.
