February 18, 2015 Favorite Horror Movies Revealed: John Allen of Charm City Devils
Rock-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!
4) Alien (1979): This movie was just terrifying! The special effects and the monster in Alien created by H. R. Giger is just fantastic! It also spawned a whole tattoo movement.
5) The Omen (1976): Another classic. The kid was an evil little SOB in this one and creeped me out.
6) A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984): Freddy Kruger is just the ultimate villain! Razor blade fingers -shit!
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)
8) Sixth sense (1999): This was a great modern Horror. I love it because of the surprise ending. No one saw that coming!
9) Resident Evil (2002): I pick this one mainly because I love Milla Jovovich! I think she is incredible (laughs).
10) The Evil Dead (1981): A good old 1980s classic. It is just so scary add funny at the same time!
