Tom Savini On Nickelodeon’s Livewire (1982)

Do you remember Nickelodeon’s evening talk show called Livewire? It was hosted by voice and sound effects artist, Fred Newman back in the early 80s. Thanks to Halloweenguy 1031’s YouTube Channel we can see him interview the legendary master of gore as well as creature effects, Tom Savini.

I love this piece of video history. Not only is Savini talking about Creepshow but he mentions that they are going to do a remake of the Thing. So…was Savini up for the effects on the Thing or was it always Rob Bottin?

Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day!” like John Carpenter’s “The Thing”

I love clever card ideas. I especially like ones that I would never have come up with if you sat me down in a room with a pencil for a decade. This very unique Valentine by Lacie O’Connor is guaranteed to go over well with that special person in your life AND If it doesn’t, it is time to move on. After all can you really be happy with someone who would not spend hours discussing whether or not Child was infected. This card is more than just good sentiment, it is a relationship barometer and therefore, a lifesaver.

Deep Analysis of Carpenter’s The Thing – Was Child’s Infected?

John Carpenter - The Thing

I enjoy watching The Thing every year, usually during the Summer. I am not sure why, but their is something satisfying about watching a movie set in the frigid cold, while it is 90 degrees out. I digress. I always enjoy the film and I have tried to figure out several times who and when people are actually infected in the film. I thought I had worked it out pretty well, but then I saw this video put together by Rob Ager that is a detailed study of hidden plot details and thematic use of costumes in The Thing. I can honestly say, I will never watch the movie the same way again.
