Artist Name: SKY HOOKS
Hit Month (Australia): 1975
Song Author: Greg Macainsh
Year Recorded: 1974
Horror Movie

Format 7" single, Producer Ross Wilson

"Horror Movie" was the second single from the Skyhooks album Living in the Seventies and was their first number-one single in Australia, staying there for two weeks in March 1975.

The single was greatly helped along by the band's appearance on the then-new ABC pop music TV show Countdown.

Along with "Women in Uniform", "Horror Movie" is widely recognised as one of the Skyhooks' signature tracks.

The song itself, written by bass player Greg Macainish, is about how the world has taken a turn for the worse with all of the chaos in society, to the point where watching the nightly TV news is like watching a horror movie.
