5 Horror Movies That Would Make Great Musicals


From the team that brought you ‘Grease’, Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator!

I want you to envision this: Dr. Hill’s body juggling Dr. Hill’s head, rolling it up and down its arms (a la Evil Dead 2), all while the Dr. Hill’s head is singing about his hatred for Herbert West and how much it is in love with Megan Halsey.

Not good enough for you? Alright, then envision THIS: Remember the scene where all those bodies come back to “life” in the morgue? That. That scene. If done properly, that scene could be the true competitor to Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller”. All those zombies doing a choreographed dance WHILE engaging in a staged battle with Dan Cain. If that doesn’t get your musical theater panties all glistening and moist (such a gross word), then clearly you don’t have a strong enough imagination. I’m currently sliding off my seat just writing this.

      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!!!

          OK cool… Thanks Jonathan! I LOVE BLOODY-DISGUSTING!!!

          • 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 :
    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:

        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.
