I'll Do Music!

TCM showed The Bad Seed (1956) this evening. Wonderfully creepy movie. Worth watching. Do watch the original, not the terrible remake made back in 1985.

The ending of the movie is different than the book. In the book (SPOILER) the mother gives the evil little girl an overdose of sleeping pills before shooting herself. The mother dies, but little girl evil survives. In the film, the mother survives taking sleeping pills and the little girl is struck by lightning. Apparently God was so offended by her evil that he decided to take her out personally. Seriously, out of nowhere comes this bolt of lightning and disintegrates the kid.

POW! Gone.

I didn't know that before becoming a movie that the story was performed as a Broadway play. I was thinking that it should go back to Broadway as ...

THE BAD SEED

The Musical.

The songs would practically write themselves.

Oh mother, what would you give me for a basket of kisses?

Would you give me a basket full of hugs?

or

I hit Claude, I hit Claude,

I hit him with my shoes.

I killed him, I killed him,

I don't like to lose

If he had only given me the medal,

everything would have been alright.

But he wouldn't do it,

then he sealed his plight ...

or

Oh Claude, can you see me?

Oh Claude, can you hear me?

or

Give me back my shoes!

Do it right now!

Give me back my shoes!

Do it ... ah ... don't .. have a cow!

Hm, ouch, er, well then, if the songs write themselves, then they need to be fired.

I guess I should stick to writing horror and general weirdness.

Give her the shoes back! She will freaking kill you!
