Five Finger Death Punch's live show is something like a horror movie. Some songs creep in for the kill, while others stab repeatedly. Nevertheless, every single show is calculated, chaotic and undeniably killer. Each song cuts through the crowd like a well swung machete and, of course, the audience just wants more and more.
ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino sat down with Five Finger Death Punch percussion extraordinaire Jeremy Spencer to discuss his favorite movies.
He gave us quite the chilling list for this exclusive interview. Check it out below…
Jeremy Spencer's Favorite Horror Flicks:
1. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
This was pretty much the first movie I saw with a whole family of psychos. It had great, disturbing character acting and a heavy storyline. I loved when the family would laugh and make a big production out of torturing and killing the victims.
2. The Shining
Seeing Danny drive around the corner on his big wheel and run into those two little girls was terrifying when I was seven!
3. The Exorcist
I was six-years-old, woke up out of my bed and went into the other room where my parents were watching this. It was right about the time we first saw Reagan become possessed. I was totally enthralled with it and had to stay up and watch. I have no idea why my parents let me watch this, but that pretty much set the tone for my fascination with horror films.
I loved the way Michael Myers was so calm, cool and collected. He always walked, not ran after his victims. He seemed more realistic than other killers and was creepy as hell.
5. House of 1000 Corpses
I thought this had every thing to offer as far in terms of what I'm looking for in a horror film. Demented, great character acting featuring my favorite horror actor Bill Mosley...Great movie!
6. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
Once again, Bill Mosely was amazing as Chop Top! I was pretty young and got into the theater some how to see it, and it was rated NC-17....I thought I was getting away with murder.
7. Dawn Of The Dead 
What a great opening to a movie! Intense as hell and creepy! Great zombie movie. Not really into a lot of them, but this was cool to me.
8. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 
I thought this is the best remake of any I'd ever seen. Great cast and the family was brilliant! R. Lee Ermey as the Sheriff was the best choice possible in my opinion—knocked it out of the park!
This was another film I saw really young and it had an impact on me. Probably, DePalma's second best film, to me. It creeped me out for weeks trying to sleep.
10. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter
This of all of the Friday movies had the best blend of scare and gore. It wasn't cheesy to the point of just being a teeny bop camp film, but had enough brutality and uneasiness to make it work.
