So here's the deal. I love Stephen King movies. I hate most horror movies, but I love Stephen King's. The reason for this is that most horror movies, especially modern horror, rely wholly on traumatizing the audience. They show you lots of graphic detail of horrible things, things that in my opinion no rational human being should ever find watchable, let alone entertaining. Now, the deal is you're shown these things and it sticks in your head for a few hours, or a few days, or a few weeks afterwards but 9 times out of 10 its the imagery that scares you. Stephen King's movies aren't like this (for the most part. Cujo is an exception) and they aren't filled with prissy half clothed 17 year olds waiting to be chopped up. The reason I'm babbling about this is because in the past week since I've been out of my internship we've watched The Tommyknockers, Storm of the Century, Rose Red, Carrie, and The Shining. The Shining isn't my favorite adaptation of one of his novels, but as we were watching it I drew some stuff. So here's Shelley Duvall and the kid who played Danny whose name I don't know.

Also, I've pretty much finalized my main character for my film. Here she is, looking stiffer and far more sober than she will in the film.

On a side note GO WATCH THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG TRAILER! DO IT NOW! It isnt as impressive as I want it to be, BUT STILL!!

Courtney Breau said...

thanks! I actually tried to do Nickelson too, but it didnt turn out so great, which is weird because he's pretty much already a charicature on his own.
