Horror-ble Screenshot of the Week

10/26/2014 -  11/01/2014
The Thing (1982) - This week's screenshot is from the brilliant film "The Thing" from horror mastermind John Carpenter. In this shot, we see the alien sprouting legs and eyes from a severed head that detached itself from its host, after which the head politely stands up and walks out of the room. This was one of the first horror films that made an impression on me when I was younger, particularly in part to this scene. I will never forget the first time I saw that head sprout legs and walk out of the room. This movie is a gem and a classic, not to be confused with that terrible prequel from 2011. They're not even in the same league.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) - This week's screenshot was taken from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and features a young Penelope Sudrow (Mama's Family, ABC Afterschool Specials) being attacked by a television set that is possessed by Freddy Krueger. This has to be one of the silliest scenes of any of the franchise. The antennae sticking out of Freddy's head combined with his lifeless expression really makes this scene stand out as laughable in an otherwise great movie.

The Stuff (1985) - This week's Horror-ble Screenshot is taken from 1985's "The Stuff" and featuring Garrett Morris. You might (or might not) recognize him from Saturday Night Live, 2 Broke Girls, or an array of various TV shows. In "The Stuff" he portrays Chocolate Chip Charlie, that is until some killer yogurt disfigures his face and explodes from his mouth.

The Gravedancers (2006) - This week's screenshot was taken from an especially disturbing scene from The Gravedancers. In this scene, we see the lovely Josie Maran in full makeup and mask, eyes white and a grin that just won't quit. When Josie isn't scaring the pants back on you, she's busy guest starring and judging America's Next Top Model, Dancing with the Stars, and portraying Marishka in Van Helsing.
