BEYOND FRIGHT: Song Of The Week – ANVIL “Straight Between The Eyes”
Happy Friday, Fiends! Recently I watched the incredible rock doc ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL , and fell head over heels in love with the Canadian trio’s hair metal tunes. I was completely unfamiliar with the band, but during the film I heard a guitar opening that sounded somewhat familiar, but I couldn’t place where I’d heard it before. Turns out it’s the headbanging number “Straight Between The Eyes” that plays over the credits for SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS!
Michael A. Simpson’s sequel is always on heavy rotation in my household, due to it being one of my favorite slasher films. Now that Summer has reared it’s hellish-heat of a head, it’s even more appropriate for a full on movie marathon of seasonal horrors! Beat the heat by staying in and cooling off with summer camp slashers & vacation comedies loaded with T&A and gore!
“Straight Between The Eyes” has quickly become one of my favorite hair metal songs; I guarantee you’ll be screaming “You only get one shot, hit you straight between theee eyeeeeeeeees!” all week long.
While you’re jamming, let us know your favorite summer films you gorge on every year in the comments!
