Kindertrauma Horror Mix Tape

January 15th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 28 Comments

Sometimes I hate writing because it reminds me so much of talking and talking reminds me so much of a very loud headache factory I wish to demolish. And so I’m off to walk a dog named Nelson. Hey, let’s make a horror mix tape! Here are some songs that I must put on my horror mix tape. Please add as many songs as you can in the comment section so that I have something to listen to when I get back from walking the dog name Nelson. Thank You!

SIDE ONE

SIDE TWO

I’d probably put the theme from Friday the 13th Part III on there somewhere.

And while it’s not from any horror movie, Creature Feature’s “Aim for the Head” at least references Night of the Living Dead!

Uh oh, now you’ve started it! I don’t know any proper horror movie soundtracks to recommend, but I’ll never say no to a chance to post this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30V-92zSkJA
(There’s also a fancier, less kid-shooting version featuring Elvira!)

Fantomas has a wonderful album of horror movie themes. The best of which is “Spider Baby” and “The Omen.”

Southern Culture on the Skids does a creepy cover of CCR’s “Sinister Purpose” with horror host Zacherley on vocals.

And don’t forget the theme to Suspiria!

Dead Hate the Living!

This is the movie

But I could only find the song with a Dead Alive video:

Unk, I lied! By far and away the best theme Fantomas does on their “The Director’s Cut” album is their take on the main theme from ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.’ It’s a tiny little masterpiece that pays tribute to the most potent horror/thriller theme from the 1990s.

Also, the song that plays in the trippy roadhouse scene from ‘TP:FWWM’ is called ‘The Pink Room’ and I believe is credited to Angelo Badalamenti

And, don’t forget, ‘Stigmata Martyr’ by Bauahus. It’s the song Angela dances to by the fireplace in ‘Night of The Demons.”

Does horror-comedy count?

Oops – I meant to say “most potent horror/thriller FILM of the 1990s”

And talk about Mike Patton really making something out of nothing here

I’m glad you brought this up, Unk. In college I was a “horror host” radio DJ at the college station overnights. Did horror puns like The Cryptkeeper and Elvira and all that jazz.

And while we’re speakin’ of Dave Lynch here’s this wonderful bit of business

Skip to 00:45 for the music to come in

Unk, I’m pretty sure I’m now insane from watching that Move Your Dead Bones video.

Also, how about the end credits music to The Deadly Spawn? It’s weirdly soothing.

first of all, major congrats from a long time reader but first time poster. from the top of my head :

‘cars and helicopters’ from the ‘hitcher’ soundtrack by mark isham : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGMeb7F19Es

from herzog’s ‘nosferatu’ by popol vuh : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZehtkbXMU8

the über-creepy sountrack to ‘last house on dead end street’ : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiUZCBEIsTQ

‘prom night’ by paul zaza & carl zittrer (who also composed the ‘black christmas’ & ‘children shouldn’t play with dead things’ ost’s) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzMkRbQCAeo

and my fav soundtrack ever, ‘texas chainsaw massacre’ by wayne bell hooper himself – ‘eaten alive’ ost is also worth : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3odOfyPz8L8

yeah. herzog’s alliance with popol vuh brought some great results – fitzcarraldo, heart of glass, aguirre, etc

a few more I remembered meanwhile :

psychomania : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F00juZ0KX1s

most things goblin, but this in particular : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pins1y0XAa0

“pointless” remake, but the soundtrack is worth it : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HvJfeSk1RU

totally cheesy prog acrobatics for ‘the burning’ by rick wakeman (yes) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R1xDYfzjcI

unfortunately, some/most great horror soundtracks never saw official release, or are long out of print. god bless death waltz for their remarkable work.

There’s always the theme to Dario Argento’s ‘Inferno.’ The song is called ‘Mater Tenebrarum’ and it was a huge selling point that it was composed and performed by Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Of course there’s the end credits rap that comes out of nowhere at the end of the 80s classic ‘The Monster Squad.’ Go Rudy, Go!

For my money, nothing beats the old-fashioned mournful creepiness of Rick Wilkins’ score for The Changeling:

Oh, but you want songs! I’m going to cheat a little and just contribute a song I love from the ’80s that you hear for half a minute in Let Me In (which actually has a pretty damn good soundtrack as well, even if the movie itself wasn’t quite as good as the Swedish original):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCvbLVAIY8w
And here’s a bit from the 2010 soundtrack (love the brrrrrrrrapping horn section):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8RSFsIuybk
Also want to second Drew’s selection of Keith Emerson’s nutty contribution to Inferno, as well as Ondness’s selection of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre soundtrack, which pretty much radically changed my life for the better, made me settle all my gambling debts, quit the drug trade, and embrace various spiritual practices. No, but it’s amazing.

Oh, and geez, what about Ennio Morricone’s music for the Exorcist II trailer? It’s mentally ill, and it really makes me happy:

Unk,

This is the post that wouldn’t die! It’s a topic we all feel strongly about. You may need to do an official Kindertrauma Mix Tape: Part II. And when you do – don’t leave poor Timmy Capello behind!

I still believe!
