The Disco Exorcist

It’s finally Halloween– the absolute best holiday of the year and people have been dressing up and partying for days here in NYC and tonight should be even more spectacular!  Not only will all of the sparkling revelers be out on the town, but ghosts and goblins will also be dancing in the streets and if they’re feeling cheeky enough, give us a dazzling fright or two.   To help get everyone in just the right spirit ( a bit of blood sprinkled with lots of camp! ),  is this trailer for the film, The Disco Exorcist.   I truly never stop being amazed at how adding the word “disco” to anything just makes it so much better and using disco balls as “weapon of death” is something I’ve definitely not encountered before.   Soldiers, I believe in all my heart that discos should always be a  happy place where everyone is welcome to get down on the dance floor under disco balls and laser beams, without fear of a possessed person making their heads explode.  However,  I do find this premise quite entertaining,  especially on All Hallows Eve.

The Stud


Recently, I had the pleasure of watching “The Stud”, a disco-tastic film released in 1978 which stars Joan Collins as a married, wealthy and bitchy woman who enjoys fabulous clothes, dancing at the disco and sex, sex and more sex.  The other main character in this marvelous time capsule is Tony, who runs her nightclub and also is her lover, but at the same time sleeps with pretty much everyone (ahhh the 70’s!). It would be hard not to enjoy a movie set up on this alluring premise, but what’s even more exciting is the music starting right from the opening sequence with a dazzling orchestrated theme song by the Biddu Orchestra.  Some other classics on the soundtrack are “Native New Yorker”, “Let’s Go Disco”, “That’s The Way I Like It” and the overly fabulous  “Cocomotion”.  It also looks like we’re not the only ones who like both kinds of music, rock n’ roll and disco, as hits like “Love Is The Drug” and “Love is Like Oxygen” are also included.  I guess great minds really do think alike!
