5 Horror Movies That Would Make Great Musicals

Hellraiser

This would be a full on opera, the type of opera that would require classically trained singers (I’m glaring at you, Repo) and grandiose, theatrical sets. Imagine the terrifying, demonic choir behind “The Puzzle Box”, or Pinhead sonorously chanting “Pain And Pleasure, Indivisible”. Were this to happen, this would be one of the most horrific, terrifying operas to ever come about.

    NONE…NONE IS THE ANSWER. ENOUGH WITH THE DAMN MUSICALS, LET ALONE MUSICALS THAT RUIN GOOD MOVIES.

      Agreed. Please no horror musicals… and damn did you have to separate this articles into 5 pages? You couldn’t fit 5 movies on one page? As if we haven’t seen the movies/trailers.

        Putting all five YouTube videos on one page would cause a lot of drag on a computer. We do it this way so that your computer runs smoothly. WE LOVE YOU AND CARE FOR YOU!!!

          • JonathanBarkan

    Ok I have to admit the Jaws one is pretty fucking hilarious. A fucking singing shark I mean come on that’s piss your pants material right there. Bruce can have like Anthony Head singing for him in the RepoMan voice while he’s about to eat someone.

    i think i’m one of the very few gay men who hates musicals (GREASE i loved and i loved THE ROSE but that’s not really a musical per se). lol. just about all my gay friends like musicals (movies, Broadway plays, etc) and i WISH i did like them but i just find them hoakey. lol.

      I’m straight, I love music (which I guess must be pretty obvious at this point), and I can’t stand the vast majority of musicals. I just can’t stand how fake and orchestrated they are.

    @JonathanBarkan …Re-Animator the musical already exists : http://www.reanimatorthemusical.com/
    I love the idea of the Jaws musical and the camp counsellors getting killed every time they try to sing (which I wish would happen in most musicals).

      I absolutely loved Reanimator the Musical. Especially Jessie Merlin as Dr. Hill. Check out the beheading scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH4kiI4oTng

        I would love to check it out! If only I lived closer…

      And I should add that the musical was directed by Stewart Gordon.

    Excerpts from the Songs:
    Jaws: “Somewhere, beneath the sea…a killer shark is waitin for me” (Melody of “Beyond the Sea” obviously)
    Hellraiser: “Demons to some… Angels to Others !”; “What’s your pleasure, Sir, what’s your pleasure…”

    I absolutely LOVE these ideas, Jonathan, even though I’m not a big fan of musicals. The JAWS one keeps cracking me up – a singing shark! The Hellraiser one could really be something as well.

    Was not expecting to see the Human Centipede, that’s for sure.
