Hey cats and kittens! It's hard to believe it's almost the weekend already and I'm planning on having a nice Halloweeny one in-between working on Vince-related things. And speaking of Vince, I thought I'd do the first of many posts called Drop Dead Inspirations dedicated to what inspired me to create Drop Dead Vince! First up, movies.
- Fido - A zombie film set in an alternate 1950s universe where zombies are controlled by special electric collars and used for manual labor. As weird as it sounds it's very funny and also very charming!
- American Graffiti - One of George Lucas' early movies pre-Star Wars and in my opinion one of his best. It all takes place one night in Modesto, California in 1962 and revolves around of group of teenagers who recently graduated high school and all of the crazy shenanigans they get into. It also features famous radio personality Wolfman Jack!
- Beetlejuice - My favorite Tim Burton film, a kind young couple die in a car accident and retrun as ghosts, onlt to have their home sold to another couple and their young daughter. They decide to enlist the help of a "bio-exorcist" by the name of Beetlejuice, and soon realize they made a terrible mistake.
- Rebel Without a Cause - The film that made James Dean famous, it revolves around a teenage delinquent who meets two other teenagers with their own set of problems. It's very sad and sweet, and despite it being close to 60 years old it's still an unforgettable classic.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas - Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, a stop-motion animated film about Jack Skellington, the skeletal Pumpkin King of Halloween Town who grows tired of celebrating Halloween each year. He soon discovers the magical place known as Christmas Town and decides that he'll create his own holiday magic.
- The Return of the Living Dead - One of the best zombie films of the 1980s with one of the best soundtracks to boot! A group of teenage punks and some medical suppliers try to battle the undead, and everything imaginable goes completely wrong in the process.
Definitely check out these movies, I hope that they'll inspire you as much as they inspired me. Take care and stay spooky!
