Alucarda and the Thrill Kill Kult

Have you ever been listening to a song and you hear a sample of movie dialogue and you say to yourself, "Hey!  I know what movie that line is from!  I'm the smartest person who has ever lived!"  Well, this rarely happens to me.  Usually it's the other way around.  I'll be watching a movie and hear some dialogue and think, "I've heard this in a song before!  I'm the smartest person who has ever lived!"

Rob Zombie is a well known example of someone who often uses dialogue from classic horror and exploitation films in his songs, and I guess sometimes he also uses Diane Sawyer interviews.  I remember watching one such interview on TV about the Manson Family and their murderous rampage, and Patricia Krenwinkle was talking about her participation in the slaying of Sharon Tate when she nonchalantly commented, "Yeah I remember her saying 'I'm already dead.' " which is the intro to White Zombie's "Real Solution #9", and I almost spit out my malt liquor because it was so unexpected.

My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult is another band that samples lot of dialogue from obscure cult and exploitation movies and places it strategically in their music, and one of those movies is the demented Mexican horror AlucardaYou can see the original dialogue in the first video and then what My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult did with it in the second.



And here's "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan" just because I think it's a great song and video.

I fit into first category, I recognize dialogues better than the song lyrics. All the three videos are nice.

And about your comment, if I need to fast and hurt myself like Ramzan,Lent or Yom Kipper, why it would be called a holiday or celebration, isnt that penance?
And if I need approval and follow rules to pray instead of party to celebrate a different religion's holiday, maybe they should follow what my catholic school used to do. Only catholic teachers and srudents get holidays on Ash wednesday and Good Friday everyone else is supposed to come to school. That is fun ?

Pretty impressive use of sampling right there. A Daisy Chain 4 Satan was actually a lot better than I was expecting it to be, I'm liking these guys.

MMMmmmm! Hell yeah Thrill Kill Kult!

Shoulda known you'd be into this kinda stuff, Banacek. Good music is good, y'know?

Admittedly, I need to collect more Rob Zombie stuff, especially the White Zombie years - I have literally NOTHING from there. Plenty of Lords of Acid though...
