Mayonnaise And Ketchup

Here's something amusing for my fellow gorehounds. I received an email today from a subtle and tasteful rapper from Austin, Texas, who goes by the moniker of MC Sex. He's promoting his new album Love Songs, and in his own words:

"This here is a music video set to 42 of my favorite horror/violent/revenge/bloody movies of all time: Mayonnaise and Ketchup.

There’s a heavy focus on scenes with badass females doing badass bloody stuff to complement the song's theme which becomes apparent quickly. It's quite possibly the bloodiest music video around."

Young Mr Sex probably isn't too far off the mark with that claim. There's not a lot of Mayo to be seen in this video, but there is most definitely an excess of thick, red Ketchup.

Musically speaking, hip hop generally isn't my thing, and I can't really vouch for the quality of this little ditty, but I won't deny a sense of kinship in Sex's taste in movies. This vid is a lovingly assembled montage of some of the wettest moments in the cinema of splatter, among them some of my faves, including Inside, High Tension, Hellraiser, Evil Dead II, Slither, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, Ginger Snaps, Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Machine Girl, Martyrs, Teeth, The Descent, Carrie, Thriller: A Cruel Picture, Basket Case, Last House on the Left, Rabid, Battle Royale, Tokyo Gore Police and Frankenhooker. He's provided a full list of the 42 flicks used here.

By the way, this is sexually explicit stuff (duh), but if you're easily offended by that kind of thing you're probably reading the wrong blog anyway.
