Need Your Help: Horror References In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Where are all the Horror and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans? If my schedule wasn't so hectic on and offline, I would most definitely watch more Anime and contribute more to discussions on World of Anime. Sometimes I feel badly because it may seem like I'm blowing off people, when it's not my intention.

As you may have noticed, I normally share blogs from my websites OMG, Anna! What's Going On?! and It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. Normally, I publish and share Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blogs on here. If you are a Horror fan and watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, I could really use your help.

Last year, I already published Cartoon Sunday blogs explaining the music references in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency, and Stardust Crusaders.

Cartoon Sunday: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood + Battle Tendency Music References

Cartoon Sunday: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Recap With Stardust Crusaders Music References

Cartoon Sunday: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders + Stands


If you listen to a wide variety of music and are over the age of 30, you can easily catch the music references. What about the horror within the series?

I already caught some of the horror references. A Stand is pretty much a reference to Stephen King's The Stand. Jotaro Kujo is a nod to Stephen King's Cujo.

Then, there is the red Plymouth Fury, which is a nod to Stephen King's Christine. The Stand, Death 13 is in reference to Freddy Kruger from A Nightmare On Elm Street. He can attack his victims in their dreams.

You may be wondering, "Why does this matter?"

If there is enough time out of my hectic schedule this weekend, I want to publish a blog listing all the horror references used in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure from Phantom Blood to Stardust Crusaders. I want to give this community credit for helping me with this list. So, how many can you list? :)

    It's nice to find someone interested in Jojo as much as I am. While I may not get some of the horror references, I do get a lot of the music references.


    Anyways the only Horror reference I know of from Phantom Blood is that some of the plot was based off of Bram Stroker's "Dracula" (This is probably the most obvious one though).

    Anyways this is all that I can provide,sorry. If you need help with anything else just friend me and send me a message.
