Genre standout Jeremy Gardner is gold as a conflicted metal musician in Sadistic Intentions
The original post can be found here.
From Alice Cooper’s and Black Sabbath’s occult-inspired lyrics and gory theatrics, to Rob Zombie’s foray into directing his own features, to films like Trick or Treat, The Devil’s Candy, and Deathgasm— heavy metal and the horror genre have always gone hand-in-hand. Both genres are known for (and celebrated) for pushing their material to the limits, often relying on violence and shock value for art. But how far is too far? With the latest heavy metal-horror film pairing, Eric Pennycoff’s SADISTIC INTENTIONS, we have a great time finding out just how far one jaded metal musician will go to achieve levels of creativity and inspiration for his music.
For those of us who get off on hanging (fake) severed body parts on our front porches and placing our creepy Chucky dolls behind our bathroom doors to scare the shit out of our more timid friends as they open the door (just me?) Halloween truly is the most wonderful time of the year. If you’re a total friggen nerd like me and schedule your Halloween/October plans by mid-July, you probably prepare a playlist of your favorite Halloween songs for when the clock strikes midnight on October 1st and you’re decorating your black “Halloween tree” while you wear your Michael Myers mask (again, just me??).
I’ve compiled a playlist of some of my favorite songs to listen to during this time of year for your listening pleasure. Some have lyrics directly relating to Halloween; some are from of my favorite movies to watch during this time of year (or any time of year, really); and some are neither, but for one reason or another, they are dark and weird, and quite fitting for October feels. Enjoy…
