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!
