Hard rockers Stars In Stereo have made a big name for themselves in 2013, touring with bands such as Halestorm, Bullet For My Valentine, Drowning Pool, Flyleaf, and more. They also released their self-titled debut album, which was produced by Howard Benson (Sepultura, Seether, Hawthorne Heights). And now, in 2014, the band is hard at work on their sophomore full length.
But while the band isn’t in the studio, vocalist Bec Hollcraft is busy watching horror movies and she wanted to share her Top 5 with us! Head on below to see her list, which has some rather unorthodox picks!
Make sure to pick up Stars In Stereo via iTunes.
May (2002): I’ve seen so many horror films over the years but one of the first that I saw that really affected me was May. It’s about a girl who grew up with a lazy eye and got made fun of so often that she decided to be friends with dolls instead. She became so obsessed with perfection, as the way dolls are built, and well…I’ll let you guess what happens when she grows up. I just love to watch a socially awkward and naive character try to figure out life and find human connection. It’s graphic in a very realistic way that could probably happen right this moment without too much effort, which I suppose is what makes it most terrifying.
The Mothman Prophecies (2002): This movie is about a reporter who researches the legend of the “Mothman”. I’ve tried to watch this movie with other people and I always end up being the only person awake at the end, feeling very terrified and alone. I guess some may see it as a slow movie, but it is so scary to me that I still get a little nervous when I see a bunch of moths at night. Apparently it is based on a true story, which of course makes it a whole lot scarier. This movie is a psychological thriller so it’s going to get into your head. I love a movie that is capable of scaring me, which at this point is very difficult for a film to do. You just have to watch it to understand.
Mama (2013): I pretty much will love anything that Guillermo del Toro is a part of. I think he is a genius and an incredible artist and I only saw this movie after hearing he was involved. The story is very creative and not your typical horror film, about two young girls abandoned in a forest by their troubled father and are forced to survive. They are rescued after five years but need psychiatric help in order to adapt back into society. It also stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who I’m a huge fan of thanks to my obsession with Game Of Thrones. I think it’s a must see. It will get you jumping out of your seat but somehow sneak its way into your heart.
Hellraiser (1987): This movie is just so disturbing. I love it because it’s creative and original, which is why I love most horror films. They take imagination into a twisted place. It’s like tapping into something dangerous that you could never create in real life. I think it expands your mind. Definitely a movie that will make you feel dirty after watching it. Also, Pinhead is the shit and such an iconic character in horror.
Alien Resurrection (1997): While I love all of the Alien movies, this one was my favorite. I remember it to be the most graphic and personally, I love me some blood and guts in a horror film. In fact, the more, the better. Sigourney Weaver is also a serious bad ass in this movie and I’m a sucker for a female lead superhero. I think the aliens are the most terrifying creatures in a horror film ever. My biggest nightmare would have to be going up against one of those.
