And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Jake Shears.. Jake has had a lot of success outside of Scissor Sisters. He, bandmate Babydaddy, and Kylie Minogue wrote “I Believe in You” for her greatest hits compilation Ultimate Kylie. And Jake and Kylie also co-wrote “Too Much” with Calvin Harris for her album Aphrodite. In 2011, Jake collaborated with John Garden to write the music for a musical version of Tales of the City.
Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70’s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Michael will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. At #34 is … Dolls.
The late 80’s saw a small boon in killer puppet films, with Child’s Play (which we’ll see later), Puppet Master and Dolls. 87’s Dolls was Stuart Gordon‘s followup to his classic Reanimator, but is sadly forgotten. It’s a shame, because it contains some truly great moments, including what would be the creepiest giant teddy bear seen on film until Bjork ran through that forest.
