Best Horror Movie Rap Song

The 90's may not have brought us the quality of horror we were blessed with in the 60's, 70's and 80's, but it did bring us one enduring pop culture treasure: The Rap Theme. The first notable horror movie rap song that I could remember was the title track from THE MONSTER SQUAD in 1987, but many would say the rap theme hit its prime in the 90's with MANIAC COP 2, TALES FROM THE HOOD and the like.

A few selections here are only horror by periphery (ADDAMS FAMILY, TEEN WITCH), but they certainly embody the spirit of this movement, so they're included. Plus, in the TEEN WITCH clip, the girls mention a guy named "Rhett" as being cute. Good taste, they have. In the pursuit of fairness, I've included only one song from TALES FROM THE HOOD, but it has an entire soundtrack filled with legitimately good gangsta rap written for the film. Lastly, while I can't include it since it wasn't part of a film (or its marketing, like the CHILD'S PLAY clip), DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's "Nightmare on My Street" is a pretty legendary track all its own.

That's my piece
So now it's time
to put a vote
to the sickest rhyme.

I'm from Horror Digi
and I'm here to say
horror movie raps
that shit is cray.

Does "I Against I" in Blade II count? If so that is far and away the best I've heard

Listening to it, it doesn't seem to have any reference to the actual film, so I don't think it should count. I've only included songs either rapped in the film itself by the characters, or written specifically about the film, characters or plot. Good track though, for sure.

Massive Attack - "I Against I"

I voted for "Top That".

But when I saw this thread, I had fully intended to vote for the "Cheerleader Camp" rap.

Damn, Rhett! When I saw the thread topic, Nightmare on My Street immediately came to mind. I LOVE that song and actually bought the 12" single 20-something years ago when I was but a wee lad but as it's not an actual movie song, I can't vote for it! To make it worse, I don't know most of the songs on the list so I can't vote for ANY of them! So my vote will have to go to the disqualified Nightmare on My Street. Sorry!

I'm gonna slash and gash
Cut another hole in your ass
Spill blood on the walls and play tennis with your balls
If the phone rings
Don't answer the call
I'm gonna slit your throat, fuck you like a goat
Peel your foreskin off and make a Winter coat
PEACE

Good call on that, I knew I was forgetting a slasher rap. Added to the poll. The best song Leif Garrett ever did. +1 for the video ending on a random shot of Buck Flower.

I manually added your vote and subtracted it from Teen Witch.

Haha this one is great, I watched this for the first time last year and had no recollection of this rap ending. Another reminder to always watch the credits. Added.

Thank you!

And ye shall receive

Definitely worth a watch, as the cast & crew even get in on the jam.
