Glenn Hetrick’s Top 10 Magic Movie Makeup Moments:
Firstly, I perceive a most urgent and specific need to clarify that this list is indeed about the identification of “moments” in horror cinema for which I hold a particular fondness.
In all fairness, having immersed myself in the Horror and Sci-Fi subculture for the entire span of my life, I have so many proclivities in regards to this sort of material that it is difficult to make even a cursory attempt at whittling down this massive list to just 10.
Thus, this list would most assuredly change depending on when you asked me and what I have most recently re-watched. Further, it would certainly be a wholly different list if the parameters were changed to “Favorite Horror Films”.
1. Bambi getting shot. Just kidding. My number one Favorite Horror Movie Moment is…. The first full shot of the H.R. Giger/Ridley Scott horror diety, the Xenomorph in ALIEN. Duhh.
2. The hunting party confronting a now extremely agitated and Bat-form Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
3. The profound and echoing impact of all four Cenobites appearing in that backlit doorway, forever changing the landscape of villain design in Hellraiser 2. And yes, I am aware that the original Hellraiser rules as well, I just like the second one better.
4. Encroaching Zombie doom (with plenty of bitchin close-ups) presses in on Micheal Jackson in THRILLER. Yes, that counts as a Movie, albeit a short one.
5. Vincent Price putting his own face back on over one of my favorite classic make-up designs in The Abominable Dr. Phibes.
6. That moist, shambling abomination known to fans worldwide as the Tar Man from Return of the Living Dead. Also, every scene from that movie.
7. The appearance of Baphomet in the unparalleled occult classic, The Devil Rides Out.
8. The unforgettable “I’ll swallow your soul!” scene with the Henrietta Demon in Evil Dead 2. Swallow this.
9. The bizarre push zoom reveal of Christopher Lee’s Frankenstein Make-up in Hammer Film’s Curse of Frankenstein.
10. Favorite “jump out of your seat moment” is a tie between the Sheet Ghost crossing the Hall in Exorcist 3, and that awful shaking face in the car in Jacob’s Ladder. Both subtle, both of which are master strokes of direction and pacing.
