Random (Halloween’ish) Movie Mention: “TALES FROM THE CRYPT Presents: DEMON KNIGHT” (1994)

TALES FROM THE CRYPT

…Was/Is An All-Time Favorite Television Series Of Mine.

If You Don’t Know, It Used To Air New/Original Episodes On The HBO Network.

So When I’d Heard They Were Releasing A Big-Screen Adventure, I Was VERY Ready To Give It A Go.

I Was 14-Years-Old.

I’d Been A Huge Fan Of All Things Horror For About…

…Oh…

…Maybe Seven (7) Years, At That Point.

I’d Been Watching Horror (In Secret) For So Long By 1994…

…I Sincerely Can’t Be Sure How Long It Had Been Going On.

I Was Addicted To A Programing Setup Called…

USA: UP-ALL-NIGHT

…On The USA Network.

Anyone Remember That Stuff?

Anyone?!

(*counts hands*)

COOL!

More Of Y’all Than I’d Expected!!

That’s GREAT!!!

Okay, YES…

…The USA Network Was AWESOME Back-In-The-Day.

Ms. RHONDA Used To Host It…

…And They Would Feature All-Sorts Of Horror Flicks.

Yeah, They Were Edited For Some Of The Most Extreme Content…

…But They Still Showed A Lot Of Stuff One Might Not Have Expected.

I Saw The “FRIDAY THE 13TH” Flicks For The First Time Thanks To The USA Network!

๐Ÿ˜€

ANYWAY…

…Sorry Was Drifting From The Point…

…But YES…

…I’ve Been A Horror/Thriller Geeky-Fanboy For A Very VERY Long Time.

OKAY…

…So In 1994, The Film…

TALES FROM THE CRYPT Presents: DEMON KNIGHT

…Was Released!!!

It Stars…

BILLY ZANE

WILLIAM SADLER

JADA PINKETT-SMITH

CCH POUNDER

THOMAS HADEN CHURCH

…And An Assorted Selection Of “D-LIST” Celebrities.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

The Gist Of The Flick Is…

…There’s A Strange Drifter Named “BRAYKER” (WILLIAM SADLER), And He’s On The Run.

He’s Attempting To Evade “THE COLLECTOR” (BILLY ZANE).

So…

…”BRAYKER” Finds His Way To A Run-Down Boarding-House To Hold-Up And Catch His Breath.

This Said Boarding-House Is Inhabited By An Odd Motley-Misha-Mash Of Other Really Strange People.

“BRAYKER” Knows He Can’t Run Forever, And “THE COLLECTOR” Eventually Makes His Way To This Boarding-House.

You See…

…”BRAYKER” Is In Possession Of A Key.

It’s The Last Of SEVEN (7) Keys.

The Said SEVEN (7) Keys Are Religious Artifacts That Protect Humanity From The Forces Of EVIL!

And Now You Know What “THE COLLECTOR” Is Truly After.

It’s Not “BRAYKER” He Really Wants…

…It’s The KEY!

When The Forces Of GOOD And EVIL Collide Here In Our Boarding-House…

…WHOA…

…We’re Talking PRIMO-HORROR-DELIGHT!!!

So What’s Gonna Happen?!

?!?!?

Now You Kids Know Good-And-Hell-Well I’m Not Gonna Tell You!!

It Would SPOIL THE FUN, And I Simply HATE Spoilers!!

If You’re Curious…

…Why Don’t You Just Check-It-Out!!!

Go Ahead, I’ll Wait Right Here.

๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

YES, My Peeps…

…I’m Not Joking When I Say This…

…I Truly Truly DO Enjoy Watching This Flick.

Period.

The Peeps At “TALES FROM THE CRYPT” Sure Did Make It A Damn Fun Flick, Fo SHO!!!

This Flick Also Has A KILLER Of A Soundtrack, Featuring Songs From…

PANTERA

MEGADETH

ROLLINS BAND

MINISTRY

…And MORE!!!

Is This One I’d Recommend To Y’all?!

Well…

…If You Have A Stout Stomach…

…Then YES!!

(*teehehehe*)

It’s Pretty Damned Cool, Actually.

It Has A Nifty Melding Of HORROR And DARK-COMEDY That Could Potentially Delight You.

I Know It Did So For Me!

So Give This One A GO, Kiddies!

I Think You’ll Have Fun!

I Know I Did!

I Know Everyone I’ve Discussed This Flick With Did.

So The Odds Are In YOUR Favor!!!

How Often Does THAT Happen, My Peeps?!

EXACTLY!!

No Bloody Often Enough!!

I Do Hope You Enjoy This Little…

DEADTIME STORY

…As The “CRYPT KEEPER” Would Say!!!

(*MMMUHAHAHAHAHAHA!*)

A Song To Make ANYONE Smile (for a while): “TUFF ENUFF” by THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS (1986)

I Would Walk Ten-Miles…

…On Myย Hands And Knees…

…Ain’t No Doubt About It, Baby…

…It’s You I Aim To Please…

…I’d Wrestle With A Lion…

…And A Grizzly Bear…

…It’s My Life, Baby…

<<<*** *** ***>>>

<<** **>>

<*>

So, Yeah, My Peeps…

…I’ve Had This Little Number Playing Off-&-On In My Brain The Past Week…

…And I Finally Decided To Do Something About It.

TUFF ENUFF

by THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS

…Is One Of THE Most Catchy Songs Ever Written And Performed In The Annals Of Human History.

And While That’s Not A Bad Thing…

…It’s Really Not A Great Thing, Either.

Listen To It Once, And You’re Mentally HOOKED.

One Word;

INFECTIOUS

.Period.

So…

…I’m Doing TWO Things, At The Moment.

One…

…I’m Bloggin’ To Y’all.

Two…

…I’m Listening To The Damned Song On My MP3Player.

That’s Right, Kids…

…I’m Driving Myself Mad With The Power Of Catchy ’80s Music.

๐Ÿ˜€

I Think We Could Officially Stamp This One…

"80s Music Overload (but in a good way)"

๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…It’s A Great Song, Fo SHO.

I’ve Just Heard It So Many MANY Times This Past Week.

Why I Didn’t Decide To Blog About It Sooner, I Haven’t The Foggiest.

Perhaps Bloggin’bout It Will Finally End The Reign Of Repeat In My Brain?!

Good Lord I Hope So.

If It Works-Out That Way…

…GREAT!!!

If It Doesn’t Work Out That Way…

…Well PLUGH!!!

For My Own Safety…

…And Sanity…

…Whatever Sanity I Have Left…

…I Sincerely Hope It Works-Out.

TUFF ENUFF

…Should Come Equipped With A Warning Label.

It Should Say Something Like…

"Warning: This Is A Great Song From The 1980's That You'll Love Love LOVE... ...Until You've Heard It Tooo Damned Many Times... ...Then It Kinda Eats At You... ...Forever... ...And Ever... Until It Doesn't Anymore... ...And Then The Cycle Repeats... ...So Goes The World."

…Or Something To That Effect.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, My Peeps…

…I Do Hope You’re Enjoying The Morning, Thus Far.

I’m Super Tired, But Can’t Get Any Sleepin’ Done.

Hence WHY I’m Up So Early, Bloggin’bout Stuff Wit Y’all.

Could Be Worse, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

Catch You Cats And Kittens Later!!!

The First Song Playing Was…

CRYING

by ROY ORBISON (featuring K.D. LANG)

…Which Is Honestly One Of The Most Beautiful Collaborations In Music History.

Period.

But…

…As I Listened Further Into The Realm That Is ROY

…I Eventually Landed On This One…

IN DREAMS

๐Ÿ˜€

!!! !!! !!!

T’Is An ALL-TIME FAVE-FAVE, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

Plus, I Simply LOVE The Flick…

BLUE VELVET

…Even Though It’s A Tad Touched In The Head.

I Would Call It “Mental Headcase” Of A Flick.

๐Ÿ™‚

Anyone Care To Debate That?!

GOOD.

I Didn’t Think So.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway…

IN DREAMS

…Is An Exceptional Tune That TOTALLY Deserves Your Sweet Sweet Lovin’!

It’s A Long-Term Personal Fave For Myself.

BRADLEY Simply LOVES His ROY ORBISON!!!

Do YOU Enjoy His Music???

I’m Asking Because I’m Damned Curious, To Say The Least.

Anyway Anyway…

I Shall Leave Y’all Be For Now.

Please, My Peeps, Try Your Best To Have A Good Day.

I’m Gonna Be Tryin’…

…Which I Do Believe Has Already Begun!

I Simply LOVE Tryin’!!

Don't YOU, My Peeps?!

SURE YOU ย DO!!!

The Song STUCKY-STUCK In My Head: “FLOWERS ON THE WALL” by The STATLER BROTHERS (1966)

I Keep Hearin’…

…You’re Concerned…

…About My Happiness…

…You’re Givin’ Me…

…Is…

…Conscience, I Guess…

…If I Were Walkin’…

*** *** ***

FLOWERS ON THE WALLBy The STATLER BROTHERS (1966) Is One Of The Songs Featured On The Motion Picture Soundtrack From The 1994 FilmPULP FICTION!!!

***** ***** *****

***** *****

*****

Is It Sad This Is The Most Memorable Song On That Entire Soundtrack?

At Least, It Is To Me.

I Think It’s Sad.

I LOVED The Soundtrack To…

PULP FICTION

…Yet This Song…

FLOWERS ON THE WALL

by The STATLER BROTHERS

…Is The Song That Generally Gets Stuck In Ye Ole Noggin.

It’s Cute.

It’s Catchy.

It’s Almost Infectious, Honestly.

I Can’t Even Believe I’m Admitting This…

…BUT…

…I LOVE This Song.

It’s One Of Those That ALWAYS Makes Me Grin Like An Idiot.

Is That Sad?

Really?

Is It?

Hmm.

I Dunno.

Well…

…Whether It’s Sad Or Not…

…It Doesn’t Change The Fact I Enjoy The Hell Outta This Little Number.

One Of The Major Strengths Of…

PULP FICTION

…Was Its Soundtrack.

One Of The Best To Come-Out In The 1990s, Fo SHO.

Everyone I Know Had A Copy…

…Or So It Seemed.

The Film Was Amazingly Popular…

…And It’s One I’ve Always Enjoyed…

(...though "RESERVOIR DOGS" is still my fave fave...)

…But Its Soundtrack…

…To ME…

…Was The Proverbial Center-Piece.

I Watched The Film Yesterday Evening Before The Cardinals Game Began…

…And Spent The Entire Ballgame Humming This Song To Myself.

It IS Sad, Isn’t It?

Isn’t It?!

Hmm.

I Sure Hope Not.

I Don’t Want Anyone Making Fun Of Me For It.

I Can’t Help It!

It’s Just A Damned Catchy Tune, My Peeps!

I SWEAR!

No Foolies, Fo SHO!

Sheesh, I Say.

Sheesh, Indeed.

So…

…Anyway…

…Y’all Know Bloggin’ ’bout A Song Is Generally The Best Way For Me To Get It Out Of My Twisted Brain…

…So That’s Exactly What I’m Hoping For In This Instance.

So Far?

Nah.

Hasn’t Helped.

I’m Still Humming It.

My Head Is Still Beboppin’ To It.

Knowing Me…

…I’ll Likely Have A Headache From Hell Before It’s All Over.

All Because I Couldn’t Help But Bebop Along To A Tune Most People Would Scoff At And Say…

"Jeez, Dude! CHANGE THE SONG! PLEASE CHANGE IT!!"

I Promise I’m TRYING, Kiddies.

I Really REALLY Am!

It’s Just So So SO DAMNED CATCHY!

Tell Ya What…

…You Try Listening To It…

…Then See What Happens.

I’d Wager It Gets Stuck In YOUR Twisted Brains, Also!

Again, No Foolies!

No Foolies, Indeed!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy Your Day, Kids.

I Shall Endeavor To Do The Same, Fo SHO!!!

HOME OF THE BLUESIs A Personal Favorite Song By JOHNNY CASH, Originally Recorded In 1957.

What’s On Now?! “PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE” (1974)

Alright, My Peeps…

…If There’s Anything I Can Tell You About The Flick…

BRIAN DE PALMA‘s

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE

…It’s That The Bulk Of You Have Never Ever Never Never Ever Heard Of It.

Period.

It’s Been A Part Of My Collection Since The Early 1990s…

…And It’s A Flick I Truly Truly Enjoy.

๐Ÿ™‚

Need A Quality Tagline?

I Got’Ya Covered!

("The Most Highly Acclaimed Horror Phantasy Of Our Time.")
(hehehe)

Yeah.

It’s Slightly Full Of Itself…

…But Sometimes That Can Be A Wonderful Thing.

๐Ÿ˜‰

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE

…Is A Glam-Rock-Musical That Was Written AND Directed By…

BRIAN DE PALMA

(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000361/)

…With The Music AND Lyrics Being Written AND Composed By…

PAUL WILLIAMS

(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0931437/)

๐Ÿ™‚

I Actually Saw This One For The Very First Time On The ENCORE Channel Back In 1992 Or 1993.

I Even Had A Copy Of The Soundtrack.

Some Of The Songs Are VERY Memorable…

…At Least To Me.

It’s Totally A Heaping Ton Of Fun, Fo SHO, Kiddies.

Since Having Fun Is What FRIDAY’s Are All About…

…I Felt This One Was Perfect.

I Was Actually Listening To The Soundtrack In My Truck The Very Day I Signed My Name On The Dotted Line To Enter Into The Navy’s Delayed Entry Program.

I Was 17-Years-Old.

I Was Listening To It Because It Always Put Me In A Better Mood…

…And Helped Relax Me.

Not To Say It’s Boring…

…Nor Sleep Inducing…

…Nor Whatever…

…It Was Just Simply Soothing To Me.

I Love The Work Of…

PAUL WILLIAMS

…And The Score For…

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE

…Is Him At His Very VERY Best.

The Film Itself Is Fun…

…But It’s Also Campy…

…Crazy…

…Oddly Strange…

…Andย Thoroughly Enjoyable!

The Major Selling Point For The Flick, However, Is THE MUSIC.

ย  Need A Lyrical Sample, Kiddies?

SURE THANGY THANG!

*** *** ***

THE HELL OF IT

Roll On Thunder…

…Shine On Lightening…

…The Days Are Long…

…And The Nights Are Frightening…

…Nothing Matters, Anyway…

…And That’s The Hell Of It. …

…Winter Comes…

…And The Winds Blew Colder…

…While Some Grew Wiser…

…You Just Grew Older…

…And You Never Listened, Anyway…

…And That’s The Hell Of It. …

*** *** ***

Yeah…

…T’Is A Bundle Of Fun, Kiddies.

The Film Actually Had A Rather Strong Cast.

It Had Quality Direction.

It Was Well Written.

And It Does Have That Power To Make You Smile And Relax.

If You’re Looking For Something A Bit Off-Beat…

…Or Something To Just Kill Some Time With…

…You Should Give…

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE

…A Good Ole Once-Over.

It’s A Flick That’s Likely To Get Stuck In The Ole Brain-Bank If You Give It A Chance To Do So.

Musicals Aren’t Usually My Thing, Though I’ve Seen A Ton Of Them.

But This One…

…To ME…

…Stands Out.

It Stands WAY Out, Actually.

It’s A Musical I’ve Come To Greatly Appreciate AND Enjoy.

The Flick Is EASILY Worth Watching…

…But The Soundtrack Is TOTALLY Worth Listening To.

As I Said…

…Give It The Ole Once-Over, My Peeps.

You May Hate It…

…Or…

…You May Love It.

Most Folks I Know Whom Have Seen It Are Deeply Divided.

A Couple Think It’s The Bee’s Knees…

…Others Think It’s A Waste Of Film AND Time.

I’ll Leave You To Decided Which Outcome Is YOUR Outcome.

Love It…

…Hate It…

…Whatever.

Just Give It A Go.

No Risk, No Reward, Right???

RIGHT!!!

The Song Stuck Stuck Stucky Stuck In My Head: “IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE” by ROXETTE (1990)

…But I Lost It Somehow…

…IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE…

…But It’s Over Now…

…From The Moment We Touched…

…’Til The Time had Run Out. …

*** *** ***

*** ***

***

Alright, My Peeps…

…I’ll Begin This By Plainly Stating…

…YES…

…YES I Own A Couple Albums By…

ROXETTE

…And…

…YES…

…YES I Own The Soundtrack To…

PRETTY WOMAN

…M’Kay?!

M’KAY!!

Now That I’ve Clearly Outed Myself…

(yet again)

…I’ll Continue By Also Stating…

…I DIDN’T MEAN TO DO THIS.

Period.

My Issue This Morning Isn’t So Much A Question Of…

“Why This Song?”

It’s Really More A Question Of…

“How Could You Let This Happen To You, AGAIN, Dude?!?”

In Regard To Either Question…

…I Have No Good Answer.

I Was Just Jamming Along On My Morning Walk…

…Minding My Own Damned Business…

…When My Player Hit Upon The Song…

PRETTY WOMAN

by ROY ORBISON

…And I Was Happily Surprised.

It’s A Fun Song.

Sure Sure.

No Doubt.

However…

…I Decided To Browse A Bit.

While Doing This…

PRETTY WOMAN

…Came And Went…

…And Suddenly…

…Like Being Blind-Sided…

…I Get Slapped Upside The Head With…

IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE

by ROXETTE

!!! !!!! !!!

Do I Love The Song?

Yes.

Would I Normally Admit To That In Public?

No.

Any Reason?

Yep.

What’s The Reason?

It’s Slightly Embarrassing, Honestly.

So What’s The Big Issue?

The Same Issue It Has Always Been.

I Can’t Stop Humming And Singing It After Having Heard It.

Period.

So…

…Since My Morning Walk…

…I’ve Been Locked-In On…

IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE

…And It’s Only Getting Worse.

You Try Playing Legos With A 9-Year-Old When You Can’t Stop Singing ROXETTE Songs To Yourself.

Yeah.

It’s Bad.

He Continues To Wonder Why I’m Singing The Song…

…And I Have No Good Answer To Give Him.

It’s Just Stuck There.

Stuck Stuck Stucky Stuck.

I’ve Tried Listening To Other Songs.

I’ve Tried Watching TV.

I’ve Tried Watching A Movie.

None Have Helped.

ROXETTE

…Is…

…STUCK…

…In…

…My…

…Head.

PERIOD.

I Suppose All I Can Do Is Wait It Out.

I Know Something Else Will Come Along, Eventually, And Unseat It.

The Question Then Becomes…

“HOW LONG MUST I WAIT?!!?!”

To Which…

…Yep…

…I Have No Good Answer.

I’m Sure I’m Not Alone In This.

I’m Sure Many Of You Have Had A Song On Endless Repeat In Your Brain…

…And You Just Hope And Pray And Whatever To Try And Make It STOP.

Unfortunately…

…Time Seems To Be The Only Cure.

And Even Then…

…Sheesh…

…Ya Know What I Mean, My Peeps?

Can You Feel My Jive?

Are We On The Same Page?

Is This Thing On?

Can I Get A Large Fry?

How About Two?

Yes?

No?

Maybe So?

Maybe Not?

I Think I Need More Sleep.

I Wonder If Being Fatigued Could Be A Contributing Factor?

Crazy Things Happen To The Mind When It’s Sleepy…

…And Doubly So If The Mind Is Already Crazy Prior To The Lack Of Sleep.

Thankfully…

…I Have This Blog…

…Where I Can Vent About Whatever…

…And It Generally Helps.

I’m Banking On It In This Instance.

Otherwise?

Otherwise It’ll Just Be…

ME

…And…

ROXETTE

…And…

IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE

…Alllllll Daaaaaay Looooooong.

I Suppose It Could Be Worse.

Maybe?

I’m Rollin’ The Dice On Maybe, My Peeps.

The Odds Are Stacked Against Me…

…But Aren’t They Always?!

EXACTLY!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

And I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Walkin’ Along To The “WALK THE LINE” Soundtrack!

Wow, My Peeps.

I’ve NEVER Done A 2+Mile Walk So Quickly.

And I Did It This Morning As The Title Of This Post Suggests.

I Did It To The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack…

WALK THE LINE

…Which Features…

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

…And…

REESE WITHERSPOON

…Singing The Tunes Of…

JOHNNY CASH

…And…

JUNE CARTER CASH

!!! !!! !!!

Now…

…Don’t Get Snippy With Me For My Next Statement, But…

…I Honestly…

…Truly…

…Sincerely…

…LOVE THIS SOUNDTRACK.

.Period.

WHY, You Ask???

BECAUSE…

…I Prefer…

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

…Singing The Songs Of…

JOHNNY CASH

…Over The Actual Singing Of…

JOHNNY CASH

.Period Period.

Getting Back To The Soundtrack Itself…

…It Really Really REALLY Is Great Great GREAT For Walking.

It Sets A Rather Unique Pace, As It’s Such A Unique Sound…

…And I Enjoy The Hell Out Of It.

Even Though The Lyrics Are Priceless…

…The Pace And Rhythm Are TOTAL PERFECTION In Regard To Going Out-And-About On A Morning Stroll.

I Did My 2+Mile Journey So So SO Quickly This Morning, And It Felt WONDERFUL!

The Soundtrack Contains Some Songs That I Consider True-Blue-GEMS.

It Features Such Songs As…

I WALK THE LINE

GET RHYTHM

CRY CRY CRY

HOME OF THE BLUES

…And…

IT AIN’T ME, BABE

…All Of Which Will Get You Movin’ Really Well…

…But They’re Not The Crown Jewels Of Said True-Blue-GEMS.

No, That Honor Goes To The Songs…

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES

…And Especially To…

COCAINE BLUES

…And…

JACKSON

!!! !!! !!!

Of All The Songs…

…My Favorite Individually Sung Song Would Have To Be…

COCAINE BLUES

…But My FAVE FAVE Song Is The Duet…

JACKSON

…BY FAR And FO SHO, My Peeps!!!

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

This Album…

WALK THE LINE

…The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack…

…I Get An Odd Sense Of Pleasure That I’ve Yet To Understand.

I’m Not A Huge Fan Of Country Music, As You’re All Already Aware, But I DO Love THIS Soundtrack.

If You’re Ever A Touch Bored…

…And You Feel Like Listening To Something That Can Really Get You Going…

…Something That Makes You WANT To Do SOMETHING…

…ANYTHING…

…Provided It’s An Activity That Gets You Moving About.

Give It A Chance, My Peeps.

The Beat…

…The Pace…

…The Rhythm…

…The Lyrics…

…And The Amazingly Crisp Vocal Performances Of JOAQUIN PHOENIX And REESE WITHERSPOON

…Make This Album Very Unique In Its Own Little Way…

…And I Consider It A Regular Triumph For A Movie Soundtrack.

Check It Out Whenever, My Peeps.

Doesn’t Matter When.

Just Give It A Go Sometime.

You Might Be Very Very VERY Surprised.

I Generally (as a rule) HATE Surprises…

…But This Is A Rather Nifty Little Surprise…

…And One That I Was Happy To Discover.

The Movie Itself Is Pretty Damned Good, Also.

Might Wanna Check That Out, Too, Kiddies.

Just Sayin’…
