Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Death By Trombone’ From ‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ (1976)

If there’s one thing I say about horror movies nowadays, it’s that there just aren’t enough deaths by brass musical instruments.  In 1976, not only was the world graced with my presence when I was born, but there was a ‘death by trombone’ scene in the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

So, on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I think it’s only fitting that we spotlight that trombone death scene from 1976.  It’s also very fitting because the remake/reboot/sequel of The Town That Dreaded Sundown was just released as well.  Without spoiling too much, the trombone makes a triumphant return in that one in case you’re wondering.  Ok, Phantom Killer – now take it away and show Peggy how to really play that instrument!
