If you’re a fan of Ice Nine Kills then you’re probably well aware that the band is, well, pretty much obsessed with the horror genre. After writing an entire album based on horror novels (2015′s Every Trick In The Book), the Fearless Records act is back with a 13-track LP centered around some of their all-time favorite scary movies.
Titled The Silver Scream, the Boston-based band has turned their love affair with slasher flicks into a sonic masterpiece paying tribute to cult classics such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street and many more.
Now in order to dive deeper into Ice Nine Kills’ horror fandom, we reached out to vocalist Spencer Charnas to find out which frightful films the outgoing frontman isn’t very fond of. While it’s obvious which movies the singer loves (just look at The Silver Scream tracklist), we wanted to figure out which films just didn’t do it for him.
Interesting enough, while Charnas has seen hundreds of horror movies over his lifetime, picking ones he doesn’t necessarily enjoy wasn’t such an easy task.
“I don’t like to be too negative about the genre,” he says. “I even go see the films if they suck because I just want to support horror. Because if we support horror [movies] and keep going to the box office, they’ll keep making them.”
Not a bad point. But still, to see which five films Charnas picked as his most disappointing as well as his commentary on a few, be sure to look below. Afterward, make sure to pick up a copy of The Silver Scream as well as tickets to Ice Nine Kills’ Noise Presents tour with Atreyu, Memphis May Fire and Sleep Signals here.
Spencer Charnas: I really liked Hereditary but I didn’t like the ending of it. I think I might be in the minority with that. I thought it was good up until the ending. I was a little disappointed with it. I just thought it was really convoluted. When I can’t remember something, I know I didn’t like it. And I just can’t really remember what was going on with the treehouse and the cult and all that shit. I had no idea what was going on.
2) Halloween Resurrection
I was disappointed with this one. I think this is the only film of the [Halloween] franchise I didn’t like. I love all of them so much.
3) The Witch
I thought the score was enchanting, just I don’t know, I think I fell asleep.
