24 Rare Behind The Scenes Photos From Classic Horror Movies.
There's a huge difference between gory slasher movies and horror movies. Mainly, a lot less blood and torture scenes. The horror movie genre is entertaining, and offers captivating tension and thrill for all the millions of fans who could never get a kick out of a simple chick flick, or a comedy movie.
Horror movie plots are are so alluring to those who need to feel the thrill of the story, empathize with its characters pain, and see a resolution that mostly just involves the villain getting what they deserve, all while munching on a second bucket on popcorn. Hollywood, being no stranger to this psychological phenomenon, created some of the most incredible horror flicks that are now timeless classics. Let's take a look at the effort and creativity that went on behind the scenes of these classic horror movies.
#1. Nick Castle doesn't seem so intimidating playing with his mask in the set of 'Michael Myers.'
Michael Myers did his first appearance in John Carpenter's Halloween as a kid who murdered his older sister, and over a decade later comes back to kill more teens. But while the story was gruesome, the behind the scenes was a lot of fun.
#2. In the set of 'Carrie', no one was laughing at her!
Sissy Spacek played a young, innocent and shy high school teen by the name of Carrie who was relentlessly bullied and abused by students at school. The real actress however, didn’t let a little blood on her dress ruin her day and had a blast while filming.
#3. Stanley Kubrick and Jack Nicholson took their breaks seriously during ‘The Shining.’
Jack Torrance was a caretaker in charge of taking care of a desolate Hotel in Colorado. The place was swarmed by horrible tales of people dying there, much like the old caretaker who had developed "cabin fever" and killed his family. The story was packed with demonic premonitions, but could anyone predict how grueling shooting some of the movie scenes would be? It is said that Stanley Kubrick was beyond harsh with Shelley Duvall, who wants nothing to do with acting after shooting The Shining.
#4. ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2’ was indisputably gross, but they found a way to have fun too.
Leatherface was a character inspired on the grueling life of Ed Gein, a serial killer that murdered and snatched his victims and ate them, among other horrifying things. But Bill Johnson, the guy who played him, was no stranger to getting bitten by the innocent cast.
#5. Pennywise's makeup was on point in the set of "It."
Stephen King's frightful movie centered around the kids that belonged to "The Loser Club", and how they go on to fight an evil spawn posing as a child-killing clown. If that's not enough to deter you from watching, then you're probably into S&M. Despite giving children nightmares for years and being the cause of a phobia, (called coulrophobia), Pennywise is quite docile off camera, while he allows a makeup artist to touch up his face. Vanity!
