The Pulse of Radio reports: SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor knows a thing or two about scaring people with the eerie masks and frightening videos that his band is noted for. It's no surprise that Taylor is also a huge fan of horror movies, so The Pulse of Radio asked him to list some of his favorites to watch on Halloween. "'The Mothman Prophecies' is an amazing movie," he said. "It's even more chilling that it's based on true events. 'Donnie Darko' is just a completely twisted movie. But as far as good-time standbys, man, you've got 'From Dusk Til Dawn', all the 'Halloween's. The first two are really amazing, and the rest are kind of campy, but if you really want to get into the Halloween spirit, I mean like, that's the thing to do, man, right there."
Taylor and the rest of SLIPKNOT play in Moscow next Wednesday (November 5) before launching a European tour in Finland on November 7 as they continue supporting their latest album, "All Hope Is Gone".
Meanwhile, EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee gave Spinner.com a list of her five favorite horror flicks, with her reason for each. Lee's frightening five were: "The Nightmare Before Christmas", "Halloween", "Carrie", "Psycho", and "The Birds".
Lee said that "Nightmare" "inspired me creatively," while she liked "Carrie" because "I just love seeing the downtrodden get revenge like that." As for "Psycho" and "The Birds", Lee said the former "still creeps me out" and the latter "was really scary when I was young and it's still scary now."
Lee's version of "Sally's Song" from her favorite movie, "The Nightmare Before Christmas", currently appears on the "Nightmare Revisited" soundtrack album. She is also working on her first solo album.
