Freddy's Friday Night Dance Party!: Slaughtered Lamb Edition!


Oh boy is it about to get hot in here, actually, with a certain someone's central air pooping the bed, it already is hot in here. I'll save you the boring and sweaty details, but to say Swamp Thing could make his home in my undies is an understatement. However, I am not the only one burning up tonight, but unfortunately, my need to strip is not followed by a werewolf transformation, which would be kind of cool. Tonight's clip is a special one, as it's from a film that is loved and considered a classic by most every genre fan, including myself. Before we get started, I should warn you all that this video is NSFW…there is a naked American man in it, but thankfully, you don't see his balloons.

1981's An American Werewolf in London made great use of music, and all with a common and fitting theme, the moon. This is the scene that clearly stands out most, as David Kessler make his famous transformation into a beast of the night to Sam Cooke's version of Blue Moon. The song was originally written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart way back in 1934 and has been covered so many times, it would take all of our fingers and toes to count them. While I prefer, and completely adore, The Marcel's Doo-Wop version, Cooke's fits in quite nicely for its ominous yet sweet tone. Blue Moon is a small, but very important, piece of a puzzle that created one of cinemas most memorable scenes.


  1. Coulda swore "Bad Moon Rising" was playing when he was transforming. Curse my memory. Cooke's "Blue Moon" is actually more fitting.

  2. I cannot for the life of me remember when Bad Moon Rising plays. I feel like it's at the end maybe? I've seen the movie so many times I would think I'd remember!

  3. You could have put a video of Naughton from the Dr. Pepper commercials right alongside this clip. Or one from Midnight Madness.

  4. Heh, that commercial is so weird and it's hysterical how flamboyant Naughton is in it!
