Despite, or probably because of, mass hysteria and also critical acclaim, Joker had the biggest October opening of all time over the past weekend and one of the biggest R rated openings as well.
It couldn’t quite top Venom’s record-breaking October opening but Halloween took the second highest grossing October opening weekend record as well as the second-best R rated horror opening of all time and the best opening ever for the slasher genre.
In the vein of Thriller, Huey Lewis and the News delivered a mini movie for the music video for their song “Doing It All for My Baby” that was an homage to the classic Universal Monsters like Dracual, Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein.
Jack Black pays homage to the wonderfully cheesy movie theme songs of the 80’s and 90’s with the official song of the Goosebumps movie, Bumps Gonna Goose Ya.
It’s October which means it’s time to celebrate the greatest villains in horror history again and we kick things off this year with the master of death traps, John Kramer aka Jigsaw.
Vin Diesel is the last remaining member of an order of warriors who defend humanity from evil witches in this fall’s The Last Witch Hunter.
For this month’s spooky installments of Musical Montage, we’ll be featuring iconic classical pieces that have been used in horror movies over the years and, to kick things off, we have the iconic organ piece Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Bach.
Our month long horror themed Musical Montage gets closed out by the classic Warren Zevon song, “Werewolves of London” that may have some hidden meaning but seems like just a song about a werewolf running around London.
Lion’s “Love is a Lie” would be fine to feature for this month’s all horror/Halloween Musical Montage, as it was featured on the Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter soundtrack, but add in Crispin Glover and it becomes something truly special.
