Horror and musicals have, believe it or not, a great deal in common in that both require a complete suspension of disbelief. We know with the same amount of certainty that there is no superhuman killing machine like Jason in real life just as we know with completely certainty that people will not spontaneously break out into a perfectly choreographed song and dance routine (flash mobs don’t count as they prepare like crazy).
There are already a few that we know of: Rocky Horror Picture Show (which I cannot stand), Repo: The Genetic Opera, Evil Dead: The Musical, Cannibal: The Musical, Sweeney Todd, The Phantom Of The Opera, etc… But that got me thinking, “What horror movies would work as musicals?” Well, I came up with five of them and I want to share them with you below. So head on down for 5 Horror Movies That Would Make Great Musicals!
With songs like, “We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat” and “The USS Indianapolis”, Jaws would be a perfect film for a plethora of musical numbers. The final song, “Smile, You Son Of A Bitch”, would feature cannons shooting shark gore into the air as Sheriff Brody pole dances on the mast of The Orca. Also, the main theme could be adapted to feature lyrics.
Oh yeah, the shark sings. Just think about that. Seriously, just think about that and tell me it wouldn’t be the most amazing musical ever.
