What will you be listening to/watching this Halloween? Several Roadrunner recording artists shared their Halloween 2004 picks:
Corey Taylor, SLIPKNOT:
"How much time you got? Mine would be a toss-up between the original 'Psycho' (1960) and probably 'Chainsaw'. But a classic, dude, is the first 'Halloween' (1978). It's so fuckin' brutally spooky. On a personal level, probably the scariest movie of all time is the original 'Jaws' (1975). I have a serious fear of sharks, man."
Dani Filth, CRADLE OF FILTH:
"I love 'Pit and the Pendulum' (1961), 'House of Usher' (1960) and 'Masque of the Red Death' (1964). I'm a big fan of 'Curse of the Demon' (1958) and Tim Burton's 'Sleepy Hollow' (1999) and 'Coppola's Dracula' (1992). I'm a fan of 'Hammer Horror' as well...the 'Star Wars' trilogy, the 'Omen' trilogy, the 'Alien' trilogy plus one."
Mark Hunter, CHIMAIRA:
"Hello friends. Halloween is here, and to get in the mood here is a list of some must see horror flicks. There are hundreds to pick from, I chose some of my favorites. A lot of these gave me the creeps the first time I saw them, and some still do. Hope you enjoy and have at least seen some of these, or will go and check some of them out! Have a fun Halloween!
"Random list order...just typed them as they came to me, if you must know my favorite it is 'The Shining'.
'The Romero Dead Series'
'Friday The 13th 2'
'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (original)
'Candyman' (kind of a cheesy movie I know, but I was in Chicago a few years ago and I went to Cabrini-Green, the housing project that Candyman lives in. Before it was torn down, this place was the worst ghetto I have ever seen. It was like living the movie. It made the 'Candyman' almost impossible for me to watch because I was freaked the fuck out.)
'Chimaira: The Dehumanizing Process'...yes this is a horror movie! It is very scary to see what we go through day to day...pick this one up for sure...if you dare hahahah.
'Hellraiser' and 'Hellraiser 2'
'Halloween 1' and '2' (would have been better if there were no Myers sequels like originally intended, but since you know there are, 2 is the worthy sequel if you can't live without knowing what happens next. 3 is not as bad as everyone says!)
'Silent Night/Deadly Night' (a killer santa...what more could you ask for!!!)
'The Omen 1', '2', and '3'
'The Sixth Sense'
'Saw'...new one, great flick check it out for sure."
MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13, most recently signed to Roadrunner for his upcoming solo release, shared the following on his plans for Halloween:
"Happy Halloween Ghouls!!!! Wednesday 13 here wishing you all a spooktacular Horror-day!!!! This is without a doubt my favorite time of the year (duh??). I'm having a Haunted Halloween bash here at my crypt with my friends and family this weekend before we head to the UK to begin the Look What the Bats Dragged In tour. It should be a real ghoul-time, as we will be keeping Halloween alive for an extra 3 weeks. I hope to see all of creeps at the show. Also listen for a couple of the new tunes being played at the shows from my upcoming album 'Transylvania 90210 - Songs of Death, Dying, and the Dead', due in early 2005 from Roadrunner Records."
CRADLE OF FILTH bassist Dave Pybus shared CRADLE's plans for Halloween:
"This year is gonna be a special kind of celebration for us. Firstly, we are not always together as a band on this so special of holidays. We usually spend the time with our fiends in our hometowns attending private parties or spooky back street night clubs, etc... But this year is going to be great because we are actaully doing a show in Quebec, the first of the world tour for the new album 'Nymphetamine'. Seeing as the show is already sold out, it's a pretty exclusive party and how better to celebrate than to have your fave band CRADLE OF FILTH perform for you? I know everyone will be dressed for death and to fit in with the atmosphere of the new album. I hope all the beautiful females in the audience are going to make this a night for us to remember, too."
