This week didn’t really have a theme. I just painted some of my favorite horror movie characters. Enjoy.
Crispin Glover, ‘Willard’
‘Willard’ is easily one of my favorite creature features. Crispin Glover’s endearing and tragic performance sells it completely. He even recorded a version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Ben’ for the end credits. In real life, he also is a huge fan of rats making his casting in this film genius.
Jason Voorhees, ‘Friday the 13th Part VII’
The seventh film in the Jason Voorhees saga involves a teen with psychic abilities. After six movies, it was only a matter of time before a psychic entered the mix. By movie 10, Jason ends up in space with half the actresses from ‘Andromeda’. True story.
Betty White, ‘Lake Placid’
‘Lake Placid’ is such a fun, great movie. It holds up surprisingly well. It stars Bill Pullman, Brendan Gleeson, Bridget Fonda, and Betty White. She drops some of the best one-liners in film including “If I had a dick this is where I would tell you to suck it”. So awesome.
This film is not as brutal as the book (I highly recommend reading if you haven’t) but it’s still stressful to watch. My favorite part is when the flowers start talking and mimicking the characters.
