It is the season of the witch once again and what better way to roll in the pumpkins
than our very own metal celebration. We are looking at some horror-themed videos this Halloween
and sharing some metal wealth with the wicked witches and horned devils out there. Here
are a few videos you can add to your playlist this season:
- "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)
EC - I remember seeing this video air on MTV back in the day. My parents at the time did
not allow me to see any R rated flicks in the theater so the footage in the video was
about the only thing I really had on this film until a laser disc rental in the early 90s.
This was on the soundtrack for "Friday The 13th: Jason Lives (Part 6)".
EC - Again I remember this video back in the day. This was from "Texas Chainsaw
Massacre 3: Leatherface" and at the time this movie was rated "X". It never
made it to my hometown but I did get it upon its first day on VHS. I remember watching it
with my mom on Halloween in 1990 I believe. We had pizza and a horror movie and she was
absolutely shocked at the on screen carnage. This was a cool song and is on the soundtrack
along with Death Angel and a few other bands.
- "Go To Hell"
EC - I always thought this was a really eerie video. It was featured on the "Bill
& Ted's Bogus Journey" soundtrack. The visuals of Satan and Mustaine face down in
the water was always disturbing to me.
Megadeth's - "Night Of The Living Megadeth"
Part 1 - Part 2
EC - I remember watching this live (believe it was taped) on MTV when it premiered. This
was just a few days before "Youthanasia" came out and me and a few friends were
absolutely ecstatic to hear the new songs. They talked about the new album a lot during
this special but they played "Tout Le Monde", "Victory",
"Reckoning Day" and then at the very end they debuted the video for "Train
Of Consequences". Total of one hour and I think it was either on Halloween or a day
or so before or after. I have this on VHS somewhere in my life.
- "Scream Until You Like It"
EC - I really don't remember this song from the movie. I think this one went under the
radar when I originally saw "Ghoulies 2". I remember watching the movie on the
USA network in the late 80s or early 90s and there was a scene of a teen running through
the forest and I can remember the music from W.A.S.P. I haven't watched the movie since
but this song was always a great track from the band.
- "Dream Warriors"
EC - This one is probably the most easily recognized soundtrack song of the 80s. Who can
forget George's wicked skull guitar? This is from "Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream
Warriors" and my favorite Dokken song ever.
Cane - "And Fools Shine On"
EC - I am pretty sure this one is a bootleg video. Brother Cane has a professional promo
video for "And Fools Shine On" but I just remember somewhere in the 90s seeing
this version of their song on VHS or MTV. This was the song featured in the
"Halloween: Curse Of Michael Myers" film and to this day I still play this song
on Halloween. I am such a fan of these movies and I remember seeing that film on opening
day and hearing the song in the movie. Good Alice In Chains ripoff kinda song.
