CLUE#1 I PUT A SPELL ON YOU

A 1956 song written by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Up to this time, Hawkins had been a blues performer: emotional, but not wild. Freed suggested a gimmick to capitalize on the "demented" sound of "I Put a Spell on You": Hawkins wore a long cape, and appeared onstage by rising out of a coffin in the midst of smoke and fog.The act was a sensation, later bolstered by tusks worn in Hawkins' nose, on-stage snakes and fireworks, and a cigarette-smoking skull named "Henry". This theatrical act was one of the first shock rock performances.

CLUE#2 VOODOO

His stage persona and props were suggestive of voodoo, but also presented with comic overtones that invited comparison to "a black Vincent Price."

CLUE#3 THE NIGHT CLERCK

His role in the film Mystery Train, Jim Jarmusch had met him after featuring his music prominently in his breakthrough feature film debut Stranger Than Paradise (1984). Although reticent about acting, Hawkins responded favorably to the director's offer to appear.
