A couple months back, we brought you the ultimate horror supercut: Over 200 movies cut into a six-minute techno remake of Cry Little Sister from The Lost Boys Soundtrack (link below). I haven’t been able to find another supercut that achieved the same level of extreme awesomeness (and believe me, I’ve been looking), but I did find another one I like for a whole different reason; it’s a unique mashup of horror and 1980s nostalgia.
Admit it, even if you don’t like oldies or love songs, you have a soft spot in your heart for Stand By Me, by Ben E. King. Released in 1962, the song gained new life in the 1980s as the title track of Rob Reiner’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Body, Stand By Me, released in 1986. If you love the film, you love the song; if you grew up in the 1980s, you love this song. I don’t care if you’re a hardcore gorehound who eats baby bunnies for breakfast, you love Stand By Me. Admit it!
The supercut below from Semih Okmn sets some of our favorite horror movie moments to Stand By Me, resulting in a video that will give you the creeps and the feels. Have a look-see and let us know what you think in the Comments section. Seen a great horror supercut I might want to feature in a future article? Hit me up on Twitter!
