Happy Friday the 13th to all you ! In honor of this very metal superstitious Friday, I’ve collaborated with the horror hounds over at Destroy the Brain in the first in a series of monthly columns titled, “The Thirteen“. This month, DTB’s overlord, Andy Triefenbach, asked the DTB blogging crew to hand-pick songs that were used unorthodox ways, in a horror film. I’m really excited to be a part of this rolling feature, as well as the inaugural post! And with that may I present: The Thirteen Songs Used In Films That Take On A Haunting Feeling. Make sure you keep the lights on, and the radio off while reading this one kids.
Also, make sure you’re all up to date with the Movies About Girls gang. Episode #174 is up an ready for your viewing and listening pleasure, as well as a special edition of the cult rock podcast, Advanced Demonology: Maximum Flute Jams.
