Soundtracking: Horror Pop

Halloween and pop music don’t tend to traditionally go together.

When pressed to come up with musical Halloween classics, the usual stale list comes to mind: “Monster Mash”, “The Purple People Eater” … maybe “Thriller”. Yet some of the more clever macabre cinematic fare has found a way to make music frightening and, at the best of times, repurposing pop songs for truly twisted on-screen effect.

As Halloween approaches, why not celebrate a few of the best singular uses of pop for a good scare or a morbid twist?

With its sequel having hit screens last month, Insidious seems an appropriate place to start for its creepy use of the Tiny Tim novelty classic “Tiptoe Through the Tulips.” »
