Bizarre Freaks and Exploding Hookers!

I am making what I feel is my greatest post here at The Morgue. I know I've put smiles on a lot of people's faces by sharing soundtracks to a lot of classic films like The Shining and Videodrome (and of course the ultimate cinematic experience, Return of the Living Dead.) But I don't think anything can prepare any of you for Joe Renzetti's soundtrack to the films Basket Case 2 and....wait for it.... Frankenhooker!

Basket Case 2 is a film that actually scares me, as weird as that sounds. It's the creature designs more than the actual movie. They were clearly designed on a low budget, but I think the cheapness adds to the overall creepiness of them.

And of course myself and anyone deranged enough to frequent The Morgue will recognize Frankenhooker as one of the all time great undead prostitute films. It's got all the elements. A killer Lawn Mower. Super Crack. Exploding Hookers. A Pimp named Zorro. Bunions. It's actually not a very gruesome movie. I mean sure theres a scene where like ten hookers explode, but it's so funny you fail to notice at the time. It's really quite romantic comedy-ish most of the time. But like good 80's Cusack romantic comedy, not current romantic comedy. Seriously, see it with someone you love.
