OK, Here’s the round-up for this week! Besides the other DVDs in the giveaway, I’ve new added the UNRATED, Uncensored, u version of Adam Green‘s Hatchet to the mix. Best place to put your guesses/answers is in the comments section.
First up, I’m hoping this looks familiar to someone (I think it may have even been in the theatrical trailer, so there)!
Okey dokey… this one’s a bit harder…
And last but not least: Most will remember Mr. Carl Rimbaldi as the FX wizard who won as Oscar for creating E.T. and a second one for Special Effects for the original Alien (I believe it was mostly for all the work done on the animatronic head, with the additional set of sharp teeth, the mouth/jaw within-a-mouth)! However, we genre fans may also be more likely to recall his work in Dario Argento’s Deep Red (Profoundo Rosso). I actually recall the first time I saw a Dario Argento film–Deep Red, in my case–more clearly and even more fondly than when I saw E.T.* Mr. Rimbaldi was also responsible for the makeup/FX in another horror movie –the one that the below still is from (late 1980s). Can you identify it?
Any takers? Remember those DVDs you can win! Happy Monday, if that’s not an oxymoron.
*My main memories of seeing E.T. in the theater are that I went on what my very naïve young mind thought was my first date. I was so young I hadn’t started crying at movies yet. I remember that, during the scene in the evil shitty government agency that had taken E.T. where E.T. is very, very weak and sad, I looked over and saw with unease that my “date'”was crying so hard that he was wiping snot from his nose (and he’d hit puberty, too). The scene was pretty sad, I’m not a sociopath, but I was old enough to know the movie was going to have a happy ending because half the audience in the theater was under age 10. Great special effects, though, enough so it didn’t sit there wondering how they did it …just watching it and buying into it completely so I could focus on the movie.
