The Dirty Dozen: Top 12 Weirdest and Creepiest Horror Movie Dances

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.” – William W. Purkey

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

“Do a loony-goony dance
‘Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain’t been there before.” – Shel Silverstein

Dancing. It makes us human. Whether we do it in front of others or bust a move in private when we hear our favorite song,  most of us have enjoyed a little dancing. But in horror movies, dancing takes on a whole new element. It’s either absurdly out-of-place,  insanely cheesy, eerily seductive, or downright creepy.

I offer you my Top Twelve Weirdest and Creepiest Horror Movie Dances. They are all listed here for different reasons… but all of them possess a certain WTF factor. Like seriously…. WTF?

 

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter – Total Spaz Dance

Okay, we all know this wasn’t the final chapter. But hopefully it was the final chapter in Crispin Glover’s dancing efforts. What is happening here?!?!?!

 

Insidious – Tiptoe Through The Tulips

Hey, even the ghosts of creepy little dead boys like to dance. Don’t hate.

 

Freddy’s Revenge – Jesse Cleans His Room

Jesse just moved into a new house and his parents are nagging him to get his room straightened up. So he vents his frustration in this awesome and very uncomfortable dance! Hahaha.

 

Dead & Breakfast –  Zombie Line Dance

I don’t even… uhhh…. I don’t even know what to say about this one. I’m so confused. Lol.

 

Carrie – Spinning

I have to mention the dance from the original Carrie because I refuse to believe I’m the only person in the world who can’t watch this scene without getting queasy. I mean… the spinning. The spinning is too much. *gag*

 

Sleepwalkers – Getting The Job Done

Sticking with Stephen King, here’s a great scene from Sleepwalkers. Man, oh man, I wish I could have this much fun at work.

 

Night of the Demons – There’s Something Different About Angela

Is it just me, or does this chick make demonic possession look HAWT?

 

Evil Dead 2 – Dance of the Headless Lover

Poor Ash. The dead just never seem to stay dead for him.

 

Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse – Groovy Janitor

Sadly, I couldn’t find a high-quality clip of Blake Anderson (from Comedy Central’s Workaholics) dancing his way toward doom in Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. But at least someone out there has uploaded something because, man, it’s so darn funny.

 

Friday the 13th: A New Beginning – Everyone’s A Critic

Hey, Jason, Violet’s dancing wasn’t that bad. It was actually sorta cute. You didn’t have to KILL her!! Sheesh!

 

Troll 2 – Holly Gets Down

Troll 2 was released in 1990, which meant the 80s were over. But as you can see from this clip, the 80s were still very much alive. And you have to admit, she’s got some pretty good moves.

 

Return of the Living Dead – Trash’s Strip Tease

Again, I apologize for the quality. It’s hard to find this video, I guess because of the adult content. But I could never leave out the nude graveyard dance from Return of the Living Dead.

 

So there you have it. My Top Twelve.

Horror is full of strange and wonderful dancing, so feel free to comment with your favorites. Thanks for reading.
