Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I’m a little bit backwards… it’s Father’s Day and here I am posting a pic of one of horror cinema’s most famous mothers, behind Ma Bates, of course. However, since Ms. Voorhees is being prepared for her final moments on this earth by Tom Savini, I think I can get a pass since the father of this effect is working with his daughter.
A bit of a stretch? Yeah, sure… but the pic’s cool, so take it or leave it!
Here’s Savini getting Betsy Palmer’s fake head ready for the decapitation sequence that ends the very first Friday the 13th. You can tell that she’s a work in progress here, which I really dig. Savini was the top of his game at this point in his career.
