30 Days Till Halloween
Here it is! October! It’s decorative gourd season, m*****f*****s! You ready to reap this freaky-assed harvest?
Vampire Themes (1997)
Some of the tracks here are fairly timeless … the cover of “Sympathy For the Devil”, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” … others sound a little dated. It’s kinda angsty, kinda “Twilight”y. Pretty good though.
Victor R. Vampire and Friends - Halloween Bash (2000)
This one’s for kids.

First, wrapping up …
The Definitive Horror Music Collection (2009)
The rest of the CDs are very good … there are a few things that feel out of place. In particular, including Thorogood’s “Bad to the Bone” just because it was in “Christine” – I don’t know. Otherwise, excellent collection. You know, I knew Daryl Hannah’s character in “Kill Bill” was whistling a horror theme, but I didn’t know it was “Twisted Nerve”. It’s
