Saturday Songs – October 12, 2013
This week features a video from a man who has managed to branch himself out from shock rock into horror movies.
Rob Zombie has parlayed his music career into a film career, first with House of 1,000 Corpses, then, more famously, for the remake of Halloween. Even before that, his music has been used in a number of genre films, most notably the songs Dragula and Living Dead Girl.
The first video for Living Dead Girl is a performance piece with shots of the remake of Psycho cut in. The version I feature was directed by Zombie along with Joseph Kahn. This version takes its inspiration from the silent film The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, shooting in tinted black and white just as the original silent film was shot.
So here, for your enjoyment, is Living Dead Girl.
As with most of my Saturday Songs selections, this song is available on iTunes for purchase. If you enjoy this song, or any of my other selections, please purchase the track.
