Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's MONSTER MASH', first and still best!  It keeps H-ween in the kid's area, not some preverted new one!

As far as songs, I’d have to say “Thriller” only because it immediately brings the ideo to mind whenever I hear it….as well as having a voice over by Vincent Price.

Being an old fart, naturally I have to mention Monster Mash….and there was a great parody about Lizzie Borden by the Chad Mitchell Trio ( which I had forgotten about until the guide at rage Lizzie Borden home mentioned it)

Ah, autocorrect….should be “video” of Thriller, not “ideo”

Whenever you see a hearse go by, you know sooner or later you're going to die!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinochle on your snout!

 

That is pretty grim but we used to sing it as kids!

There was an old woman all skin and bones. Sing it with my grandchildren every Halloween

Warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, changing weather patterns.
Climate change is disrupting the usual balance of nature.
Global warming fear is real.

Runs a chill down my spine to this very day.

 

The only movie that literally gave me and others nightmares.

 

Some people had to see psychiatrists.

 

TUBULAR BELLS by Mike Oldfield

 

Enjoy........ Unless you are possessed.

Oh my yes….I was a nurse in ICU & a group of us went after work to see that movie. I was terrified, even though I had already read the book. That theme of tubular bells just brought back the chills!
