Turntabling Appearances Up Next: Flint Horror Con 2011 Flint, Michigan

Turntabling brings the vinyl to the Flint Horror Con in Flint Michigan on Saturday October 29, 2011. If you haven’t seen the Turntabling Collection at Horrorhound Weekend, Cinema Wasteland, Dark Carnival Film Fest or Horror Society events, now’s your chance to get a load of the rare, obscure, lustworthy and hard-to-find vinyl records and CDs that make up the Turntabling Collection.

At this one-day horror festival, Turntabling will have all sorts of vinyl and CD insanity including out-of-print titles by Goblin, John Carpenter, Skinny Puppy, Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, Demon, and many many others. You’ll find plenty of great stuff to pore over at the Turntabling booth and the many other vendors at the show.

This is the very first horror con in Flint according to the ads, and the response to the show has been really amazing–so much so that the film festival itself had to close the submissions down because so many entries had come in.

If you live near the show, come by and say hello–we’d love to see you at the Flint Horror Con! It”s at the Masonic Temple at 755 S, Saginaw Street in Flint, MI. Join us! Doors open at noon.

Dario Argento and Goblin: Suspiria Soundtrack

The soundtrack to Dario Argento’s Suspiria is still one of the loudest, creepiest and most effective scores used on a piece of celluloid to date.

Argento’s demented fairy tale/Grand Guignol horrorfest is still just as creepy and unsettling as it was when I first spotted it playing on a drive-in movie screen in the 1970s. I had no idea what it was–I was too young at the time to know what I was missing–but Suspiria later made the rounds on HB0 and Showtime where it made believers out of creeped out kids all over America.

Check out the Goblin soundtrack on this trailer for the restored version of Suspiria. Argento claims a collaboration with Goblin on this one, but I truly believe that the credit for this belongs squarely with the performers themselves–Goblin may have gotten some coaching from Argento in the studio, but listen to the realization of these sounds and marvel. Goblin has had some decidedly gawdawful results when they aren’t on their game, but here they hit all the marks with skill and a precision that predates later sonic attacks along the same lines by Skinny Puppy by many years. Bravo!
