Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I have very fond memories of seeing The Frighteners in the theater… actually, those fond memories reach back pre-release when that sweet poster was released. The Hobbit isn’t the first time a Peter Jackson movie got a cool lenticular poster. In theater lobbies The Frighteners poster had the face appear to push through the wallpaper.
While the CG in the movie is terribly dated that doesn’t distract much from the fantastic dark humor that permeates that film. Jeffrey Combs in particular is on another level in this film. It was also one of Michael J. Fox’s last hurrahs before he quasi-retired and announced his Parkinson’s. Fox’s personality is something I miss on the big screen and The Frighteners marks one of his last starring roles.
So, here’s Peter Jackson standing in front of the Frighteners house. Thanks once again to Pat Barnett.
