Rocktober – Nine Eternities Of Doom

It’s 12:30 am EST, another installment of Rocktober’s Friday Night Videos is here.

Friday Night Videos

The first request is from Maeve –

Come As You Are

(because it creeps me out, especially when performed by Civil Twilight)

Creepy indeed, but personally I find the original more threatening, especially considering how unhinged Kurt was.*

Speaking of threatening and sinister… out of all the vampires and pirates and other assorted monsters, possibly the most dangerous is the quiet, methodical, coldly efficient killer. Like, you know, David Byrne.

Live wire he may be when he’s burning down houses, but Byrne is nothing compared to Vincent Price, who lays out his plans to the number with  calculating ruthlessness –

This movie has to be seen to be believed. It’s billed as a comedy horror film, and there are some bits of humor (usually very dark), but it’s twisted as hell, and Price is absolutely convincing as a genius bent on killing.

Tonight’s feature presentation – The Abominable Dr. Phibes

 

* You knew it, everyone knew it, even before he died.

  1. Whoa! Never even heard of The Abominable Dr. Phibes before.

    Now, that is freaky.

    Silence of the Lambs meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets The Phantom of the Opera meets Phantom of Paradise meets meets Tim Burton meets Savador Dali.
