OK – I promise this is the only time I will include a raster graphic in Icon of the Day. But the reason is that I want to explain my next series in terms of the subject matter.
This is my doggie. She will be the subject of each icon for as long as I do the series. I want you to see HER first. In that interest, starting with Photographic Realism:
Not as graphic as later gore films, with the 3D technology probably not much worse than it is now, this one is worth seeing. See it in a theater if you ever get the chance. I have not seen the one with Paris Hilton. This has Vincent Price and does NOT have Paris Hilton. And has Carolyn Jones from the Addams Family. What else can I say? See it.
Directed by Charles Laughton, starring Lillian Gish, Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters, and a couple of truly sweet kids, this is chilling and gorgous. By the way, this is where that trope of “love” tattooed on one set of knuckles and “hate” tattooed on the other comes from.
OK, I have a confession to make. I have never seen the Made for TV horror movie Bad Ronald, the one with Scott Jacoby as a creepy guy who kills a mean girl so his mother locks him up in a closet so he doesn’t get arrested but she dies and he is still there when a new family moves in…
Lost Highway is structured like a Yin-Yang symbol.
How to describe this one? I think this link will take you to the full movie.
