After Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch — our newest writer — contributed a column on must-see horror flicks, we decided to open the topic up to the members of other bands. Why? Well, in addition to music and literature, we’re huge movie buffs and feel maybe your life could benefit from a big screen broadening.
So here for you now is a new column from HUSH. guitarist Jordan Cozza.
“I Drink Your Blood”
This is a great old Grindhouse movie. It’s about a cult of hippies who get stranded in a small town and wreak havoc. A small boy from town gets sick of their shenanigans and infects them all with rabies. That’s when the movie really sucked me in. This film has violence, weird rituals and a pregnant chick with rabies. It’s a real emotional roller coaster.
“Night of the Creeps”
This movie is about an alien virus that falls to earth and turns people into zombie-like creatures. It starts in the 1950′s and picks up in the 80′s. Things really get awesome on prom night. The protagonists are a bad ass cop who’s down on his luck and a nerdy high school kid who wants to save the popular girl. I’ve probably watched this movie at least ten times.
This is actually a bunch of short films rolled into one movie. There’s one story where Stephen King plays a farmer who is trying to prevent himself from turning into a plant, one where a guy hates his wife so much he feeds her to a wolf creature and one where a dead old man returns from the grave to kill his rich, pretentious family. This film also features Ed Harris doing a really weird dance, Leslie Nielsen as an awesome villain and Ted Danson buried to the neck in sand while the tide is coming in. It also features the cop from “Night of the Creeps.”
