Avant-garde filmmaker and total weirdo Crispin Glover revealed in a recent interview that he requested AC/DC’s Back in Black for his iconic dance scene on Friday the 13th IV. Check out the bit where he talks about and hit play to see the actual scene. This guy is fascinating. If you get a chance to see him on tour, do yourself a favor and GO SEE HIM! It’s awesome.
I must ask… Friday the 13th, part 4. Your dance. Where did you come up with that?
I asked for them to play “Back in Black” by AC/DC when I was supposed to dance in that scene. That was the dance I came up with for it. They did not use “Back in Black” in the soundtrack. Some people have put a clip of it up on YouTube with the AC/DC track, but it is not synched correctly. It was certainly an unusually way to dance to that piece of music but the motions of the dance fit properly to that song if it correctly synched.
