Night of the Living Dead by The Misfits
Ah, Night of the Living Dead. A true classic by any definition.
Romero’s Dead opener redefined horror, the zombie, claustrophobia and human villainy. And everyone’s been apin’ it since.
At the impressionable age of 12, it began a love affair with horror films that only gets stronger every year. It was the first one to really knock me on my ass.
“Holy shit?! Movies can end like that?!”
I shout to no one, in my Massachusetts bedroom late one Halloween night.
I respond 20 years later through a Halloween blog,
“They sure can kid, but most of em won’t, so don’t get too comfortable.”
It’s a film I love, no asterisk.
However, when it comes to a Halloween playlist, there ain’t much there to spin for your guest. No worries cause The Misfits have us all covered.
This ain’t no love-in, this ain’t no happenin’, it’s a goddamn Halloween party, so stumble in somnambulance!
