Happy October everyone! This month will be full of horror movie fan arts because I am a huge wimp. As a direct result of me being a huge wimp I have not seen very many horror movies, something that my co-worker, Dick Grunert, decided was unacceptable. Dick made me a list of 13 movies to sink my teeth into and throughout the month of October I will be watching all of those movies and doing fanart for them.
Today’s sketch is for the 1974 film, “Black Christmas”.
Dick had the following to say about the film: “The original slasher film, beating ‘Halloween’ to the punch by four years! ‘Billy’ is one sick puppy, and those crank calls are )still) scary as hell! This flick also boasts my all-time favorite last scene out of any horror film— I dare you not to get creeped out!”
I really liked the film and was glad I started with this one, as the gore was at an acceptable level for my queasy stomach. And while I agree the last scene was very satisfying, I loved the scene in the basement where Jess is hiding from her would-be killer. Lots of creepy basement shadows all the while a mysterious figure paces outside the house, peeping through windows.
