The Smashing Pumpkins mainman Billy Corgan is one of the most visionary musicians of the past two decades.
Even though he’s not an avowed “horror fanatic” like say our new columnist Philip Anselmo or our buddies in Devildriver, Billy Corgan does know what’s up when it comes to scary flicks. Right now, Corgan’s mired in releasing each track of his latest epic the 44-song Teargarden By Kaleidyscope, which from the first songs that have been released, sounds like some of Corgan’s best fare yet. Teargarden mixes the massive scope of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness with the psychedelic grunge urgency of Gish, and we can’t think of anything more awesome than that.
Billy Corgan shared some flicks that scared him with Bloody Disgusting’s very own Rick Florino
. Check them out below!
Night of the Living Dead, Dracula (Orginal), Bride of Frankenstein
I don’t like scary movies; I think they upset the system too much. But if you must watch one, I’d go with the original Night of the Living Dead, old school Dracula or, a great film is the second Frankenstein movie—can’t remember the title, from the 30s, same cast as original. Also, anything with Vincent Price!
And of course, don’t forget The Shining
Or the first Halloween. But like I said, I don’t like scary movies!
Oh yeah, Suspiria is pretty scary too!
