Halloween-A-Thon 2011: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (re-post)

1981 was the year of the werewolf. Along with this classic, The Howling and Wolfen also saw the light of day. The make-up effects for this film were groundbreaking and still hold up to this day and you can't beat any film that features Jenny Agutter! Elmer Bernstein wrote the music for the film but the studio never released an official soundtrack. Instead, they asked MECO to give the world his interpretation and thus we have this!

I attended a party this evening and the host ran "Mad Monster Party" in the background. One puppet character who didn't resemble her voice actor was the red-headed sexpot Francesca; singer Gale Garnett, who provided her voice, was brunette and usually wore conservative dresses buttoned to the neck.

I believe I know why "The Mummy" was the worst ever make-up for Karloff. In the classic Dick Smith's Do-It-Yourself Monster Make-Up Handbook, Smith writes, "For the scene where the mummy wakes up, Mr. Karloff told me that Pierce worked on him from 3 AM to 10 Am, spending much time and care with the wrappings which totally encased him. After filming for a half hour, Karloff announced, 'Fellows, I have news for you. I have to go the bathroom.' You may have noticed that ever since Mummy costumes have had zippers."

If you've still not seen the psuedo-sequel to MMP, Vinnie Rattolle offered it at his blog as a share earlier this month. Hope this helps.
