15 Stars Pictured Next To Their Iconic Movie Monsters



One of the great things about horror movie monsters is their ability to pull you away from reality. How many times has a trailer used the tagline, “It’s only a movie…it’s only a movie…?” That’s because the filmmakers behind the most memorable horror movies of all time were able to pull you inside their vision so intensely that you forget it wasn’t real. And depending on how you look at it, that could be a shame because there are some great actors behind legendary horror icons, even if you don’t recognize them under their incredible makeup.

However, Angela Norris, the owner of Fxattics Studios, wanted to honor those men and women beneath the makeup in a series of photos that showcases both their human side and their most monstrous.

“I am the owner of Fxattics Studios, where I make props and Halloween masks, so I’m always trying to create works of art to increase my likes and views on the page,” Norris told Defused, “I had the idea to do the montage with the clown Twisty as many people don’t know that he is John Carroll Lynch from the show Drew Carey. My followers liked the idea and I kept doing it.” 

Entertainment website Defused put together a list of Norris’ work and we picked some of our favorites from the list below.

Tony Moran as Michael Myers

The iconic man behind the mask throughout the movie was Nick Castle, but it’s been famously reported that Tony Moran stepped in for the unmasking scene in which we get to (partially) see Michael’s face.

Fxattics Studios

Quinn Lord as Sam

Did you know that Quinn Lord was also the little boy with the lollipop at the beginning of the film, who peeked into the window while the girls were undressing?

Fxattics Studios

Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger

It’s unthinkable now, but Englund wasn’t director Wes Craven’s first choice to play Krueger. He wanted to use a stuntman for the role but decided that wasn’t going to work and Englund got the part.

Fxattics Studios

Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding

There were three people up for the role of Captain Spaulding: Jon Polito, Red West, and Sid Haig. Guess who got the part?

Fxattics Studios

Howard Thornton as Art the Clown

The mime-like performances that you see Art the Clown doing in the film were used based on Howard Thorton’s experience as a mime.

Fxattics Studios

Bonnie Aarons as The Nun

Long before Aarons became the demon Valak in The Conjuring universe, she was featured in the music video for Counting Crows’Round Here” video in 1993.

Fxattics Studios

Daveigh Chase as Samara

Before getting the part of Samara in The Ring, Chase tried out for the part of Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room. She lost to Kristen Stewart.

Fxattics Studios

Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise from IT (2017)

Skarsgård got his inspiration for Pennywise from watching the iconic movie psychos from, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, The Dark Knight, and Silence of the Lambs.

Fxattics Studios

Doug Bradley as Pinhead

Bradley nearly turned down the role as the lead cenobite because he was just starting out as an actor and thought people should see his face.

Fxattics Studios

Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees

Kane might be the most recognized person to have played Jason even though he only became a part of the franchise in its sixth sequel.

Fxattics Studios

Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface

Because Gunnar was faster than Marilyn Burns, during their chase scene, he had to slow down a little by doing other things like pausing to use his chainsaw on a random tree.

Fxattics Studios

John Carroll Lynch as Twisty from American Horror Story

Lynch’s Twisty the Clown portrayal was criticized by the National Clown Association of America for giving their profession a bad name.

Fxattics Studios

Jonathan Breck as The Creeper

The Creeper was bald because Breck thought that it would need to “borrow” its victim’s hair, based on the storyline.

Fxattics Studios

Warwick Davis as The Leprechaun

Unlike Gunnar Hansen in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre who could outrun his final girl in real life and had to slow down in chase scenes, Davis couldn’t keep up with Leprechaun’s final girl (Jennifer Aniston) in a wheelchair scene, so she had to slow down in order for him to keep up.

Fxattics Studios

Tim Curry in Legend, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and IT (1990)

The amount of makeup and prosthetics curry had to have done for this movie was astounding. At one point Curry got claustrophobic during the removal process and panicked ripping off part of the costume and some of his own skin with it.

‘Fear the Invisible Man’ Trailer Reveals the Character’s Sinister Plans




Fear the Invisible Man takes us back to the H.G. Wells classic and takes a few liberties along the way by adding some twists, turns, and of course more bloodshed. Of course, Universal Monsters also incorporated Well’s character into their lineup of creatures. And in some ways I believe the original Invisible Man film to be the most monstrous character among Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, etc…

While Frankenstein and the Wolfman might come off as the tortured victim of someone else’s doing, The Invisible Man did it to himself and became obsessed with results and immediately found ways to use his condition to break the law and to ultimately murder.

The synopsis for Fear the Invisible Man goes like this:

Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, a young British widow shelters an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity frays, he schemes to create a reign of wanton murder and terror across the city.

Fear the Invisible Man stars David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart), Mike Beckingham (Truth Seekers). The film is directed by Paul Dudbridge and Written By Phillip Daay.

The film arrives on DVD, digital and VOD beginning June 13.

Chatting with this young and upcoming talent who has embedded her footprint within the horror genre over the past several years was fantastic. We discuss the evolution of her character from the original film to the second film, what it was like working with all of the BLOOD, and, of course, what it was like working with Seann William Scott.

“As a teenage girl myself, I find that I go from cold to hot in like two seconds, so it wasn’t super difficult to tap into that…” – Lulu Wilson, Becky.
