Halloween scares are never far away.
To prove it, we’ve changed a word in the titles of a dozen of rock’s most popular songs and opened the door to new worlds of terror.
Then UCR’s Adrian Borromeo turned them into insanely scary horror movie posters, which you can see below.
Fleetwood Mac’s seemingly innocent 1977 love song “You Make Loving Fun” already hid a pretty big secret. To cover what she was really singing about – an affair with the group’s lighting director – Christine McVie told her then-husband John McVie that the lyrics were about her dog.
Replace the third word in this title with “kill,” and suddenly a much more evil alternate meaning emerges. It doesn’t matter how much you sing – just imagine how well the couple who kill together stay together!
The terror continues with horribly altered song titles and posters of Eagles, Styx, Journey and other artists. Elton John has more in mind than fighting, Aerosmith’s elevator isn’t as sexy as it used to be, and Robert Plant isn’t the one who contemplates his own demise in Led Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dying”.
Hopefully some big names in Hollywood will see the posters below and start production on these rock song inspired horror movies in time for next Halloween. In the meantime, enjoy the posters and let us know if you have any ideas for follow-ups.
