Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I’m a big, big Rocky Horror Picture Show fan. I’m a little obsessed with Tim Curry if I’m going to be completely honest. He’s an amazing actor, but there’s something about his energy in this film that is impossible to ignore. It’s like the filmmakers captured a bi-sexual Loki in Curry’s iconic performance as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a mischievous, jealous larger than life character.
So, I finally have an image from Rocky Horror to share with you guys with this column and it’s a very fun Tim Curry shot at that. Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks to Jai for putting me on the track to find this image!
Before I sign off tonight, I want to follow up on the BTS contest for a Joe Dante autographed Gremlins Blu-Ray and Vol. 1 of the Trailers From Hell series on DVD. In honor of the adorable Phoebe Cates, I asked for Holiday horror stories to be sent in under the subject like “Why I Hate Christmas.” I got some doozeys, but the one that stuck out to me came from a reader named Lance Checketts who was nearly paralyzed this year when a sledding trip with his 3 year old son went horribly wrong. In protecting his son, he struck his back against a rock and missed being permanently disabled by about 2 inches.
The story was harsh, but the photos he included are what pushed him over. I’ll spare you all of them, but check out what his back looked like 4 days after the accident:
Hopefully the spoils of his contest win will aid him somewhat in his recovery! Thanks to all who entered and thanks to Mr. Dante and Trailers From Hell for the great, rare Gremlins pics and contest!
Tomorrow’s pic likes its eggiwegs!
