Just like everyone else, I get bored.
So what do I do that kills said boredom?
Watch documentaries FREE online.
The man in the picture above is Bob Burns.
He’s basically, the coolest film fan around. This dude has an amazing collection, the kind of collection that any sci-fi/horror/fantasy geek will faint at the sight of it.
He’s also pretty famous on Halloween. At one point in his life he and his wife used to put on Halloween shows for the kids in the neighborhood. It started off small(making a fake lab in the living room) till it got…well, a lot more elaborate.
How elaborate it got is the subject of the documentary, Bob Burn’s Hollywood Halloween.
It’s an incredible documentary that showcases the kind of awesome shows that I wish I got to see. Imagine the kind of shows the they do at Knott’s Halloween Haunt or Universals Halloween shows, except made with love and care by true film fans. They recreated scenes from films like The Time Machine, Forbidden Planet, Alien, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Thing (the original Howard Hawks version.) all for free!
The guys that he got involved weren’t just any film geeks either. He got likes of Dennis Muren (CGI master of T2), Rick Baker (the man who created the make up effects of American Werewolf in London) and Greg Nicotero (the man who created the make up effects for Sin City and From Dusk till Dawn.) and many more people like them through out the years.
The documentary is free here..
Trust me, after you watch this you’d want to plan a cool Halloween show for you neighborhood next year.
All right, I have to start getting my costume ready for this weekend.
