Hey,
I'm working on creating an horror themed cabaret night, and looking for some good songs, It will contain songs from Sweeney Todd, little shop of horrors, Rocky horror, Evil dead, Jekyll&Hyde, but I'm still in search for more songs that could be good to this theme.
Any ideas?

Carrie the Musical?? I'm sure a few of those would fit the bill (although I am personally unfamiliar with the show.)


Then you could just have a fun section of BAD songs from terrible musicals -- that's pretty HORRORific to me!

Carrie is good, thanks!:)
I even found some good B movies with songs, like nudist colony of the dead, or silence of the lambs the musical, but I feel like I'm still missing out some good songs

I always thought "The hills are alive....." was a rather scary image.

Finicky Phillip...or any other song from the macabre Shockheaded Peter. I really thought they were quite a bit scarier the Carrie.

Rocky Horror perhaps?

OP mentioned Rocky Horror, but I'll second your suggestion of Shockheaded Peter. That has some downright gruesome imagery. There's Dracula the Musical, too, and the hopefully Broadway-bound Scary Musical - scary and funny.

What about the Phantom of the Opera? Maybe the title song?

Not what you're wanting, I'm sure, but "Molasses to Rum" from 1776 is downright chilling.

Here's an intro to Shockheaded Peter. The entire show is based on a German book of children's cautionary tales. At the end of every song, the child sung about dies. In Snip Snip, the child is mocked by his mother as he bleeds to death because his thumbs were cut off after he disobeyed her order not to do so. Very macabre.
