Here is a discarded Stocktober card that I was going to use for my final entry. However, not too pleased with it, i decided to do a different character.
Tony Sedani up at bat again! My next choice for Stock*tober was Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
(To my surprise Joel and I actually made a card exactly the same!)
This movie still creeps the hell out of me everytime I watch it. I have seen it numerous times, and it never gets easier to watch. Right from the beginning the film almost makes you think this is a true story by intro by John Larraquette. It literally feels like you are watching a home movie since the film quality and audio wasn’t so great as I mentioned in my Excorcist post. Again, the movies that scare me the most are the ones that can actually happen. And this is horribly possible! I buy that there are families out there right now capable of doing this and probably have. This card is from the end scene when Leatherface chases their captive girl from their house as she tries to escape. A very suspenseful scene ending in such a realistic series of screams from the girl. Chilling Movie to say the lest. Later remakes and prequels of remakes and prequels to prequels are all garbage and will never re capture the original’s horror.
Continuing with the 5 movies that scared me the most is The Excorcist. I know it is cliché to say that it is one of the most scariest movies ever, but it is damn true. I think they claim that it is a true story in the beginning which gets your mind racing thinking this really happend, a clever trick many horror movies use to strike fear even further into you. It has a very creepy haunting feeling throughout the film. What makes alot of 70’s horror films scary is the quality of the film and audio. It almost makes them feel like they were filmed with a home camera. Nowadays we get HD quality films that feel way too polished and doesn’t trick our mind as much. So as for the card, I took a very gross scene from the flim and exagerated it a bit. This was done on 3.5″ x 2.5″ card with ink and Copic sketch markers. See you next week!
When I was presented with being part of the Stocktober daily event over at stockpilecomics.com I decided to pick the 5 movies that scared me the most in my life, and sketch the characters from said films.
First up is my all time favorite horror character, Michael Myers from Halloween. I have seen this movie over 50 times, and I make sure to watch it every Halloween Season. This movie scares me because it is very simple yet realistic story. Michael escapes from the loony bin, and goes on a murderous rampage, no supernatural nonsense like later sequels bring into it. And to top it off has one of the most creepiest endings in any movie, and if you have never seen it please put it on your “to see” list this month.
Later sequels of Halloween fall extremely short in living up to the original. Halloween 2 is good, basically a direct sequel and really ends the story. 3 is irrelevant, but decent in its on regard. 4 is atrocious, 5 does some cool things, but still falls flat. 6 is a mockery of the series. And H20 is actually a personal favorite of mine, disregards every sequel and keeps it simple a good bookend to the original. But of course part 8 undoes and pisses all over 7. Then we have the two remakes… and that’s all i really have to say about those…
