john allen - Favorite Horror Movies Revealed: John Allen of Charm City DevilsRock-n-Roll and Horror movies somehow, a great deal of the time, always go hand and hand. Whether it be a a memorable Rock tune playing an intricate part of a Horror soundtrack or a Rock star simply having a clear affection for the genre. For Maryland Hard Rock band Charm City Devils, Horror holds a special place in the heart of their lead vocalist John Allen. Formerly the drummer of popular Alternative Rock band SR-71, Allen has been on the Rock scene for over three decades now and in that time he never deprived himself of catching the latest Horror flicks as they hit the theaters. Recently we caught up with Allen to reveal his Top 10 Horror movies of all-time.

1) Halloween (1978): I love this film. It is one of the best that started the Slasher genre.

2) Friday the 13th (1980): Again, love this one because it is a true classic. It spawned so many sequels and even a remake.

3) The Fly (1958): This original classic with Vincent Price is great. The scene where the scientist kills the little man fly that is on the web with a rock stuck with me my entire life! I saw it when I was a little kid and it was super creepy!

7) Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992): This is a great film, but I love it so much because of Keanu Reeves. I kept waiting for him to break and say “like, Dracula dude…” (laughs)
