  1. YAY!! This is awesome news! One of my favorite movies of all time! It also made me a yuuuuge fan of Rick Baker. I was in the 7th grade when this movie came out, and for the rest of the school year, my parents kept getting called in to talk about the “disturbing imagery” I was creating in art class. I kept drawing storyboards of the epic conversion scene, and it totally freaked out the nuns – yep, Cath. school victim, here. But it was pretty funny! Luckily, my parents shared my sense of humor! 😉

    Thanks for the good news!! ?

    • No problem. Awesome hearing from someone that loved it as much as I did. The heavy amount of practical effects make this one of the best movies and the conversion scene is definitely unforgettable! That’s hilarious hearing about the art you were creating. I’m sure it was too awesome for them. Again, thanks for the comment and the ‘American Werewolf’ love!
