For this last week or so of the month, I’m going to be posting songs you might find on a rocker’s Halloween Playlist. Most of them are from movies you’d watch during this spooky time of year. I don’t care for slasher/horror films, myself – but if there’s one thing that can scare the hell out of me it’s horror movies with a religious theme. Blame it on the early influence of an Irish Catholic grandma. Omen, The Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, The Prophecy, etc. have all left memorable, if not unfavorable impressions. Yet, while those movies are designed to terrify, I do enjoy religious movies full of action and suspense like Devil’s Advocate, Constantine, Stigmata (my personal favorite), and Legion.
Legion was a bit underrated in my opinion for having so many big name actors in it, but that’s probably because it was more of a mash up between The Seventh Sign and 30 Days of Night with killer angels, rather than an in-depth story with complex characters. Still, if you’ve never seen it, it’s worth watching at least once. The trailer can be found here.
I couldn’t go an entire month of rock without sharing one of my all-time-ever favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin – and fortunately for me, they have hundreds of songs to choose from, because I post about them A LOT. 😀 Though BB has tracks for both video games (Halo 2) and other movies (Surrogates, Hellboy, The Conjuring, etc.) – their song “Dance With The Devil” cannot be found on any soundtrack anywhere. Which sucks, because it would be perfect for so many movies. Lucky for us, a fan out there put the music to scenes from Legion, which is awesome – I was getting tired of watching the Devil’s Advocate one, and unfortunately BB never made an official video for this song. There should be some rule against that…
