Ah yes, I see. As you say, creepy. But horribly appropriate, somehow.

My image of Nick Cave is of a thin, elegant dude in a suit, crawling out over the audience, trusting them to hold him up above the crowd, like some huge fucking spider. A truly amazing stage presence.

Leonard Cohen was sacred heart in a song, Nick Cave is black blood, but somehow sides of the same coin, for me.

Probably fucking with my own head, but for the last couple of weeks, while I try to come up with a V-Day tale, I keep listening to these two;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdfBv3Gg0jY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jtpf8N5IDE

And yeah, I know it's not exactly what was meant. But, for some reason, they keep fucking with me more than my usual Killswitch Engage, Lacuna Coil, etc.

In Siblings with benefits the sister was a hopeless alcoholic drug addict from the age of 18 to her early thirties. Now I grew up in a family full of that so although I've never touched anything I had the mentality and results down pat.

I like to listen to things that reflect my writing. If you ever knew someone like that this is heart breaking and I played it on a loop during a couple of chapters.

"Modern Noir Songs" Great dark moody music to write to.

Not sure if you've seen them, but two other good -and older adaptations-(IMO)

The Resurrected featuring Chris Sarandon is The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Resurrected

The Curse-don't be scared away that it stars Sheriff Lobo(Claude Atkins) is a very underrated version of the Colour out of Space.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Curse_(1987_film).
I agree that Dagon was well done and setting it in Italy gave it an added feeling of decadence. Another movie one could check out is The Haunted Palace. It was made by Roger Corman and though the title is from an Edgar Allan Poe poem it was actually a version of Charles Dexter Ward starring the great Vincent Price. It was the first Lovecraft adaption that made it to the screen, I believe, and the Necronomicon's debut movie role. It was made on a small budget like all API movies were but it is still pretty good and Vinny is at his scenery chewing best.

On the subject of Lovecraft related movies...anyone remember the Dunwich horror that was done in 1970?

Way off target, more like a Satanic cult, but still fun in its own way.

For people like me who find lyrics distracting, the Cryo Chamber label does a great line in "dark ambient" (think horror movie background soundtrack). All available for free listening before you buy: https://cryochamber.bandcamp.com/

They have a range of artists, but my favourites are the Lovecraft-themed collaborations (Cthulhu, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth). Eight hours of sinister meditation music there :-)

Ooh, haven't heard of that. Will keep an eye out for it.

Oh god, Dean Stockwell's eyebrows.

I used to have that one on DVD, but the disc shattered in the player one day - I guess it was made badly and spinning put too much stress on it? Only time that's ever happened to me.

Side note, one of the things that always tickles me is goth/horror/metal icons doing dorky mundane life stuff. I'm a big Gary Numan fan and a couple of years ago he was blogging about going on a road trip with fighting kids and a flatulent dog. These days one of his daughters sings with him.

Last couple of days it was Rob Zombie celebrating his birthday with vegan cupcakes and a trip to the La Brea Tar Pits with his wife: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bd30nkGlQ_a/

Ah Rob Zombie....and his very sexy wife.

I met him back in 2004. I went to the Black Christmas tour with him and Ozzy in Manchester New Hampshire. He was signing autographs in the lobby and everyone was getting DVD's or posters signed.

He had just released his first comic book The Nail (4 issue series through Dark Horse) and I brought one with me. So he was thrilled I showed up with it, then I told him I owned a comic book store in RI that waqs heavily horror themed. He actually held up the line to chat with me about horror comics for a few minutes then asked for a card and said he'd come by next time he was in the RI/Mass area.

He never did, but oh well.

ON a down note I've seen him in concert maybe 10-12 times going back to White Zombie. In 2014 he came to Lupos and my wife bought tickets as part of our anniversary weekend. he was so stinking drunk he botched the lyrics several times, was staggering around on the stage and the guitarist had to do three solos because he kept wandering back stage to either pee or puke.

Amazing that some of these people never seem to grow up. I don't think I'd spend money again after that.

His wife is still extremely hot though.

Useless trivia, Rob Zombie was actually a porn producer at one point.

Huh, that'd be a disappointment.

Not terribly surprised, considering some of his album artwork... if I recall, he was also on Peewee's Playhouse early in his career.

Yes! From Pee Wee to Porn to heavy metal, comic books and Horror movies....okay, take away Pee wee and all those things are big hobbies of mine with the addition of collecting swords, knives, guns and occult works...somewhere the FBI is profiling me.

One of the darker more depressing songs you'll find. But powerful and well done.

Snuff by Slipknot.

Now that it's finally come out in Australia, I'd add "The Shape of Water" to my list of Lovecraftian films, although it's not really horror - or at least, the horror doesn't come from the monster.

The witches in my Abigail series worship Asmodeus a prince of hell. This is a great image of him that I found when I needed to describe the tattoo Abigail has on her arm.

The show Supernatural currently has Asmodeus as the latest powerful demonic entity the Winchesters will somehow dispatch with no issue, and he's in the shape of an annoyingly southern dufus who dresses like Colonel Sanders..

Being that I'm as into fight scenes as much as sex scenes in my erotic horror novels and my BDSM thrillers. I have a few clips I watch from time to time.

These two are from the very under rated movie History of Violence(based on a comic graphic novel, but with a very different ending)

The opening scene where two serial killers pick the wrong guy to screw with as the mild mannered owner is a former Mob Hitman who recreated his life in the sticks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtYg1xz1A00

Another scene 'Death of Carl Fogarty'

The palm to nose blows-and results-are the most realistic I've seen for that particular strike.

When it comes to violence and Mayhem this movie to me is the standard. Natural Born Killers. The chaos and out of nowhere violence blew me away the first time I saw it.

Juliette Lewis has the perfect mix of sexy, skanky/crazy for this part. And the girl can brawl. The kidney shot followed by the knee to the face is a classic combo.

Only downside, the knife through the window is impossible.

What I see when I listen to this song is a two meth addicts (I don't know why meth, but that's what I see) with the man having tied up his girlfriend in the kitchen. He's trying to convince her not to leave him and he's doing this through a combination of her fear, his anger and his untreatable devotion to her. He's begging her to stay, he's desperate, while laying out kitchen implements (knives, forks, maybe a glass he breaks, Raid from under the sink) and if she can't understand that they belong together, then he'll prove his love to her, even if it hurts.

I've got this planned for a story one day, I just haven't gotten around to it. But mainly what that song reminds me of is emotions I've felt, or others have felt and were related to me, or stories I've heard from associates that may or may not have been true.

I find the darkest emotions come from things that aren't suppose to be dark on the surface.
Pink is seen as a pop star, but she's written some powerful songs among the catchy stuff.

Nick Cave, Rob Zombie and Natural Born Killers. I think I'll pull up a bean bag and enjoy what comes next.

From the cheesy, but creepy and under rated movie Night of The Demons(original)

A hot possessed goth girl dancing to Stigmata martyr by Bauhaus

It doesn't get much better.

A little more depressing than Dark, but when writing gloom Springsteen's The River can bring you down to that level.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t5hD4DP2Xc

Interesting because when I was young I was not a Springsteen fan, I was all into metal and hard rock and his music was kind of irrelevant to me.

Then I started listening to him again in my thirties and could now identify. I had a failed first marriage that ended ugly and the story of this song really hit me.

Concrete Blonde blood letting, fantastic grinding beat, great lyrics and subject matter, and her voice is perfect for the song.
