My wife says the same thing.

----------------------------------------------

I forgot to mention I also rewatched THE DEVIL'S REJECTS. For those not keeping up with my watching habits(hopefully that's everyone) I watched 3 From Hell a couple of months ago, and a week or so ago rewatched House of a 1000 Corpses. It seemed natural to just finish off the trilogy.

Like Corpses, I hadn't watched Rejects since it came out. At the time, I remember liking Devil's Rejects in general thinking Zombie had proved he could direct with nasty throw back of exploitation filmmaking.. Now after rewatching both, I like Corpses MORE and Devil's Rejects LESS. It's weirdly because of technique. To me Corpses takes a plot(Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and then puts it through a Rob Zombie grinder. It's messy and wild and unapologetic that way. Devil's Rejects feels like it's wearing it's cinephilia on its sleeve , like it's a response to people thinking this musician guy is a hack and how dare he step into our world. "Hey guys it's cool! Watch me stylistically quote the Wild Bunch climax for the opening of my movie."

So maybe the debate between the two comes down to plot vs. style.

I feel like I'm gearing up to write a book on Rob Zombie cinema.

This is what COVID-19 has done to us.

FWIW: Bill Moseley in one of the coolest dudes that I have ever met. When He, Edward Lee and I were judging the annual gross-out contest at a World Horror Con (contestants have one minute to read a scene from a short story or novel that they have written in an attempt to, well to "gross out" the audience. Lee and I became permanent judges after winning three years in a row with scenes from Goon our horror novel take on pro wrestling (see, I'm staying on-topic for the board). Anyway, Bill read the notorious corn-on-the-cob scene from Goon and brought the fucking house down. I'm sure that if you Google "corn-on-the-cob" and "Goon" you'll find it somewhere on the net. Don't say that you weren't warned, 'cause you were and by the co-author at that.

The demon Nazi stormtrooper scene in AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON is superb.

Always disappointed that David Naughton and Griffin Dunne didn’t get a bigger break after this film—they’re very natural actors.

Naughton's career didn't really go anywhere but Dunne's is interesting. He's still working steady up to today and appeared in some pretty good films -- My Girl, Quiz Show, Dallas Buyer's Club, and he starred in After Hours by Scorcese (which I still haven't seen and am going to rectify tonight).

After Hours is fantastic. I like Dunne a lot. He’s done some directing and producing too. He’s also genius in Johnny Dangerously, and responsible for one of my favorite ADRs in any movie.

Naughton had a prolific if quiet acting career in films, theater, and television after American Werewolf and he also had a Top 5 Billboard hit song for the sitcom he started in back in the day, so let's not mourn too much for him.

Griffin Dunne has also been a busy man.  He sees both sides of the business these days as an actor as well as a director and a producer.  He might not be proud of all of his directing accomplishments since his work on Movie 43 earned him a Golden Raspberry.

I think the demon Nazi stormtrooper scene is more a testament to the awesomeness of Rick Baker than it is a credit to anyone else.

The demon Zombie stormtrooper scene is probably the award winner for the most random WTF thing I have ever seen in a movie.

Second thing may be from Another 48 Hrs during the big chase where you see Kitten Natividad topless in a movie showing at a drive-in right before the bad guy bikers come tearing through the screen.

I remember Naughton first now from My Sister Sam. 

I knew for sure that you were going to post the intro credits for the television show, Makin' It.

My first exposure to a lot of horror movies were the Fright Flicks cards that Topps put out when I was a kid, so American Werewolf looked like the craziest shit ever.

I had all three of those. And I was all of five or six, probably.

Hey, here is The Horror Show in its entirety (thanks to WWE for inspiring me to search it out). Lance Henriksen and Brion James as an undead mad slasher? Sign me up! 

Who knows why it was also House 3? I've never even heard of that.

They cut ties with him after Werewolf because he got naked in the movie 😄

He got to do a nude love scene with Jenny Agutter.

David Naughton is full of win.  Fuck that sitcom.
