Best Metal Moments In Horror History
For our next installment, we highlight an 80's gem that has more metal moments than any other horror film in history: Trick or Treat. The tough part is, how to whittle them down to one. And the fact is, you can't.
Oh, some may cry foul that we aren't including one Mr. Gene Simmons and his turn as a radio disc jockey. But he plays a snarky, borderline douchey dude and that's not a far stretch from his real life persona.
For me, some of the best scenes in the film are of one Mr. Ozzy Osborne playing a man of the cloth and railing against all things rock n' roll. Oh the irony!
The second moment(s), is when Marc 'aka Skippy' Price unleashes his dead rocker idol upon the world, the resurrected frontman shows up at the school dance, crashes the party and jams out to this little ditty. Dammit if it isn't catchy as hell. Music courtesy of 80's heavy metal band Fastway.
If you haven't seen this movie, you really should. Even if you don't like metal, its an 80's classic through and through.
Up the irons and stay metal. \m/
