I’m pretty sure there’s an unwritten law stating that we must gorge ourselves on spooky movies whenever Halloween season rolls around. Unfortunately, most cable networks haven’t gotten the memo and have opted to wait until the week leading up to Samhain before treating us to various horror standards, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dust off some of our own favorites, right?
Unsurprisingly, it’s not just everyday folk who are feeling the spirit of the season, but also those who’ve led high profile careers in the entertainment industry. On that note, being a lifelong horror junkie, none of us should be shocked that filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie has been spending some quality time in front of the TV lately.
Ever since arriving on the scene years ago when he fronted White Zombie, Rob has taken his love for the macabre and applied it to pretty much all of his artistic endeavors, perhaps even more so when he went solo in the late 1990’s. Thus, it was only natural that someone with a stage show such as his branched out into cinema by directing modern cult classics such as House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and Lords of Salem. Not only that, but he also helmed the remakes of Halloween and Halloween II.
So, if you’re wondering which flicks he’s been revisiting of late, a recent Instagram post let us know that he’s still digging Blacula (1972), Cat People (1982), Curse of Frankenstein (1957), The Resurrected (1991) and Son of Dracula (1943). Suffice it to say, this guy probably has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things horror.
