My Halloween Countdown -- with a Bullet

A very '70s, very soul-infused disco number (and the extended version, yet) of "The Devil's Gun" by CJ & Co. The creepy thing is that this was released around the time that serial killer David Berkowitz, the "Son of Sam," was terrorizing NYC. The year of both the song and the tail of Berkowitz's killing spree was 1977 and, whether the Sam reference was intentional or not, its spectre hangs over the dance floor with this track. So add serial killers to the monsters on My Halloween Countdown and boogie down... while you still can... to "Fee Fi/Fo Fum/You're looking down the barrel of The Devil's Gun."
