Music Monday: The Music of Friday the 13th

Ever wonder what the name of some of the songs in Friday the 13th movies are?

There has been a huge Friday the 13th vibe going around for the past year.  A lot of it has to do with the video game being released in 2017 and we were supposed to get a new film last year as well.  Recently we opened a new contest in giving away 3 Jason masks as we try to get to 10,000 likes on Facebook.

So I have been showing my kids the films and some of the songs featured in the film have become family favorites within the household.  From “The Man Behind the Mask” from Alice Cooper to the theme from Friday the 13th, its all good.

While there is all kinds of music, I have only picked a few things.

Friday the 13th Main Theme – Harry Manfredini

Friday the 13th part III Theme – Harry Manfredini

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter – Lion – Love is a Lie

Friday the 13th part V: A New Beginning – Pseudo Echo – His Eyes

Friday the 13th VI Jason Lives – Alice Cooper – He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)

Friday the 13th VIII: Jason Take Manhattan – Metropolis – Darkest Side of the Night

There is so much more about me. I hate this phrase, but I am an aspiring comic book writer. Problems with finding artists and getting published have held me back. Writing comics has been a dream for, well as long as I can remember. Now I am writing with a great team, Apogee Comics and hopefully we will make some noise in the same way Image comics did in the 1990s. One day, Rage of Rayzor and the Horror Syndicate will lead me to my dream. Support me, by sharing this site, liking and sharing posts, even following me on twitter would help @Rayzor_33. But you want to know about the horror…right? I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. When my little brother was 2, I was 10, so were talking 1990. He was introduced to Halloween and I made him believe Haddonfield, IL was a real place. We lived in Illinois at the time and this terrified him. After the intial shock, he grew older and more interested in horror films. When he was 8, we went to the local video store and made our way to the horror section. We started with Alien and worked our way through the alphabet of horror. That day we basically started our course in horror. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
