    hah...Definitely "Fall Break" from "The Mutilator", and that damned "Midnight's at Your Door" from "Midnight" bullshit. that was hilarious...It sounded like it was sung by some homely librarian who sang folk music to grade schoolers when they'd go to the library for story time...

    Giving the two cops their own comedy theme in Halloween 5 has to be one of the most lame brained ideas ever and completely distracted me from this already sub-par film.

    I absolutely love the Fall Break song, and I leave The Mutilator DVD on the menu screen just to listen to it every now and then. As for worst, I have to agree about the Faceless theme. That's just brutal.

    Hey! I love "Body Talk" and "The Darkest Side of the Night", both are cheeserific. And the songs in MADMAN are just classic. If anything, I'd have to pick the theme to DON'T GO IN THE WOODS, but even that is fun in a so-bad-its-fromage sort of way.

    Peter Fredette's "Darkest Side of the Night" just isn't nasty enough for Jason. (You Canuckleheads might know Peter Fredette as Kim Mitchell's main man.)

    Great poll idea! :lol:

    'Other' - that godawful 'Everybody's got something to do' song in 'Night Train To Terror'. (and the fact they play it about a zillion time doesn't help!)

    Other - DEFINITELY the theme for Don't Go in the Woods. One of the worst recorded songs for a film ever. The theme song to Madman was almost as bad. (Whatabout that stupid song in the 'hot tub' scene? Yeechh...wretched.)

    I do assume that the originator of the thread has never had the displeasure of hearing the, ahem, "theme" from "Don't go in the woods"...


    Don't go out in the woods tonight - you probably will be thrilled...
    Don't go out in the woods tonight or you probably will be killed.
    There's a friendly beast who lurks about,
    And likes to feast; you won't get out
    Without being killed and chopped up in little pieces...

    ...da capo al fine...

    The wretched noise from the ending credits of the first "Sleepaway Camp" shrieks for a place on this list, too.

    Choosing the worst score would be slightly more difficult, but, ad hoc, I would select the wailing from the worst sequel of the last year (or was it 2003?), "The Thing that calls itself Hitcher II". The "music" from that video makes "Torgo's Theme" sound creative.

    Hey! The theme from Two Thousand Maniacs is the tits!!! Don't knock it.

    The Madman theme is fun, but I'll vote for it. Also, the music in Truth or Dare has some problems. (fun too)

    Also, soundtrack to Paganini Horror (which I want a copy of ;) )

    All this talk of Madman has compelled me to order the dvd from amazon, I must admit it is one of the few slasher films I have yet to see. Is it worthwhile?? Despite the crappy music??
