In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Skinny Puppy's Horror Show Part Two

Okay, time for numbers five through one.

5: Song - Monster Radio Man; Source - The Twilight Zone episode "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street"

This is the second appearance of The Twilight Zone on this list. Everytime I watch an episode of this old show, it still amazes me how ahead of its time it was. The only reason this stuff was even allowed on television back then is it was likely just dismissed as sugary science-fiction entertainment. There again is the genius of Rod Serling.

4: Song - ...Brap; Source - Andy Warhol's Dracula

This song was on their first EP, and with the aid of the screaming skills of Udo Kier and Milena Vukotic, it is truly a full-out assault on your eardrums.

3: Song - Burnt With Water; Source - The Exorcist

This is another track from Mind: TPI and I love it because the samples blend so well with the music in this one. I couldn't find the song, so below is some 1986 concert footage courtesy of YouTube user Tenguzame99.

2: Song - Testure; Source - The Plague Dogs

Testure is one of my favourite Skinny Puppy songs and tracking down this old animated movie was kind of a big deal for me way back when. Here below is one of Puppy's more powerful videos. I love the inserted clips of Evil Dead 2 and The Exorcist in there too. There is also an extended cut on YouTube, so feel free to track that one down - if you dare.

1: Song - Rivers; Source - 2001: A Space Odessey, A Clockwork Orange, The Fearless Vampire Killers and Dead & Buried

Rivers is a sampling masterpiece in my opinion. So many movies, flowing in and out of each other, you can just close your eyes and the dark imagery just swirls around in your head. Again, awesome job on the video mix by radi0n. He did however, omit the samples from House By The Cemetery & Maniac 2, so I included them below, as well.

Well, that's the list, hope you enjoyed the trip. Oh, and happy Friday The 13th by the way. Seems oddly fitting, don't you think?
