meet those guys who travels you must have met cushing an and Lee and I never I never met cushing I did meet leave Christopher Lee because he's in Gremlins right right of course we were really excited about that you know and he was a great guy and we actually we had when I open my big studio which is now closed but We had a giant Halloween party and it was really Hollywood throws a Halloween Party and it was decorated to the Max and crystal for came you know and the thing was you had to come in costume it was you know for somebody like me on a really important Christopher Lee came Christopher Lee and I was like okay in in Orlando came as Martin Landau I forgave him for that and you had the chance and it was rate makeup job of making Martin Landau went to bail go see yeah that was you know I'm a timber Fan first of all in an bale of fan and would fan when I heard when I heard that movie was being made eye contact tim I admit tim previously when he SUV right out of Cal Arts Tim and Recon Rix both and we talked to a number of times about different films that never happened but when I saw this summer it'd be an an article on the trade that they are doing this so I contacted him I have to do it for free you know he pretty much took me up on that doc but I mean I got an Oscar yeah yeah and I was doing another movie at the time which I usually don't like to do two things at once but I had to do this so vee Vee Neal applied to make up on a daily basis I made the appliances did the initial tests and in work it out it was a fun a fun project which was their all time I really wanted to be there when they were the bride of the monster stuff and extra cheesy said you know what you're hoping to do some toward Johnson makeup too I was I said what about tour what about tour and then they got this Guy what was his name George Animals wrestler kind of look like tour you know an close enough you know we swore him yeah it was it was I think it's Tim's best movie and it's The it's wonderful what we're friends with Scott Larry to really outdid themselves gotten Larry wrote the problem child movies there you go uh-huh but when I read the script I mean I was blown away and that's when I mean I also felt you know it's tempting to put too much on somebody you know in Martin's face was wrong in so many ways I mean Lugosi had to bury round face and Martin hitter little rectangle or long rectangular in a face and Martin has big full Lipson in bail ahead you know basically no upper Lupino and I was tempted to add stuff to the size of his face but when I read the script and I just you know it's has to be real you know what I wanted really Seles more I just really wanted to get the essence of Lugosi and not cover up too much of the actor you know and I I think it worked out doing worked out for him as well as you yet yeah he owes me yes well it's it's it's funny I always remember that Martin Landau said he won the award that was supposed to go to Bela Lugosi well that was nice of him yeah in your speech you thank Jack Pierce well you know I mean he was my God Jack Pearson Lon Chaney were the first inspirations you know and then then there is the the Dick Smith connection which was the amazing thing happened to me is to be able to meet you know and he his work was just above anybody else's I mean I you know this again before the Internet went to the library you shortly and information and there was a book on stage makeup that had some some pictures of Dick Smith stuff and then I event you found a ordered for me a book called the technique of Film and television makeup and they have their pictures in there that I just went off this look so real and it was like Dick Smith turn the other pages and there's another one real Dick Smith so I became a major Dick Smith Fan and Dick Smith among a million other films did the Godfather and the exorcist and when you see the excesses the audience goes Oh yeah Linda Blair in the months to make up and what people don't realize his Max von Sydow is like forty when he did that and you accept the fact that he's an old man in the morality and he looks very much like that now now we look like and whether it was going to mention that when you said you mentioned the exercise is one of my movies it's really addicts move movie this was an assistant to Dick you worked on it yeah counts as a credit geigo oh no I was going to say another movie you should have your name added to if it's not added a ready that you're responsible for the makeup in aside from doing too great makeup job in American Werewolf the howling was was a lot of of your makeup ideas yeah I mean I do I have a credit on their do your makeup consultant yeah well my protege rub routine did that film rob came to me as a thirteen year old kid never did make up and and wanted to learn and he could draw really well and and I kind of took him under my wing I wanted to be like Dick Smith and I taught him too well 'cause he showed me up in the thing you know when you did John Carpets thing just like you know showed everybody up with that stuff but yea I John had written American world when we did schlock which was John's first film and my second and you know he wrote on I think when he was twenty or something and he told me the whole story you know he said I wanna do this transformation in a way you know it doesn't make sense to me that excuse me doesn't make sense to me that if you're he was going through this metamorphosis that you would sit in a chair and be perfectly still until you change I wanna I wanna see the pain I wanna I wanNA also I don't it's not a horror movie in that it takes place in real a real apartment in real no horror movie lighting and how would you do it and it's like I don't know I would love to have the opportunity as we both loved those kinds of films especially the transformations and you know he said was GonNa be my next movie so start thinking about it well schlock wasn't a big hit you know and it wasn't intended after Animal House that John Actually got the money to do this movie but prior to him getting the money I got a call from Joe Joe Dante about the howling Joe Dante Mike L. and said we want to do this horrible for movie would you be interested in I said Yeah will announce my opportunity to show off for this transformation I thought of and as the way things work you know like a ah I say two weeks later enjoy says it's even was less time than that I get a call from John gone good news we're doing America wear wolf is like Oh shit you know when I told John He called me all kinds of names and how could you do this to me is like I'll I'll make it better so you know I had already recommended rob too to Joe to do some parameters for Parana and so they knew him in you

And again, that was in relation to the guy. That brought you in and, you know, something, and I have to say, though, that while Rick Baker was the guy that brought you in.

"Is a guy that would be the most difficult for us defensively the game plan against i see that the tree around rick baker mayfield one he's a very accurate quarterback he has that chip on your shoulder that you want for a guy that's going to be taken possibly your franchise quarterback i know the nakal is height when you look at guys like drew brees and russell wilson bakeries a kind of a mix of both these neither one but a mix of both you know he he he presents some problems because it seemed but he's one of those quarterbacks his hands pretty quickly for pass rusher i hated that i don't know i think from that perspective i will go at baker but he's obviously not as polished or presumably his politics as your donald so we'll see but i i would go a baker i i think it's twofold i think it's a one of the things you mentioned that i found that and playing against dan marino all the time now he was basically stationary in the pocket but you can hit the greatest pass rusher move in the world which i rarely did but occasionally i did but marino get rid of the paul so it's like the quick quick pass and they're getting rid of the ball the other is you get a good pass rushing you have guy would escape ability a baker mayfield a lamar jackson not only escape but then can outrun you bakers knocking out run you but he can he can still escape and get out so those are the two things i think that could be detrimental as a defensive lineman getting a rush as far as the giants again are concerned is there any thought process to you think you know may maybe leaning with with saquon barkley but to pick that quarterback successor for who's thirty seven years old with your mind i think i'll see i was wanting to guys didn't say like how things in this last year that that whole situation but if you're if you think about the long term you have to start thinking about his successor you have these thirty seven i think he still has some good years depending upon how the old line plays which is another reason why i like nelson too but yeah you have to start thinking about it i think.

"Is not amazing or doesn't really uh in la buyer us like these rick baker effects do because we just know that it's all the same cgi process it's basically just a paintbrush on a piece celluloid or digital or whatever lots of hours with body casts and with silicone and various other latex and things that actor's don't like to do but that look really cool once they're onscreen um i i wasn't you know the the the the old woman the he's friends with says the video drome and the people that run it have a philosophy that he doesn't have what are you all interpret that loan demeaned well i think there's that two separate philosophies affordably the video drome was made will by both berry convex and brian oblivion once again brian oblivion philosophy is that because violence and sex in media opens up our brain receptors more it allows for the video drums signal to enter the brain more efficiently for that new organ to be created into the brain and for us to reach the next stage of human evolution so that's what i think the the brian oblivion philosophy is in in terms of what exactly she's referring to i think it's a little unclear but then the berry convicts philosophy is that we use the video drums signalled to basically met out the disgusting human beings that need to be radic aidid from the earth because if you get off on video drome than fuck you you're a lot you should have a brain tumor in die wold but wasn't he also like trying to put it out to more people like it seemed like he was trying to get a go more mainstream with it so it's not like uh mean berry honda yeah he he that the plan was that they took a civic tv which is the name of max rennes channel which only appeals who would you could call scumbags you know like like and then they take a which is why max kills his partners because now max is the sole owner and mberi convicts can use macs to broadcast video dream to all the watchers of civic tv and those watchers of civic tv are the people who get off on sex and violence and they all deserve to die and so then they'll get to brain tumor etcetera i think it's a really interesting choice that you don't seen a lot of movies.

"No i i think another kind of philosophical companion piece to this movie is an movie that i know ryan has seen austin have you ever seen tetsuo the iron man no helio love every now and they're saying okay it's pretty bizarre it's it's very surreal very hard to kind of discern a narrative but there actually is one but it's about a guy who is a technology fetishes the opening seen in the movies actually him cutting open his leg and putting a piece of steel in it as a sexual act that turns him on and then basically spoiler alert the end of the movie is these two people kind of merging and creating a new body they basically become this giant metallic tank like thing that is the next evolution inhumanity and i think that um there is this kind of sense of biological urges that i think that perhaps is some sorta commentary and i i'm not an evolutionary biologist by any means but i do believe that just as our sexual desire there's propel us to continue to propagate the human race and stuff like that i think that there's some sort of commentary on how uh sex is essentially a tool that humanity will used to go to the next level and so i think that when we see that the next stage of human evolution is an extension of our bodies is a technological thing rather than you know us getting taller or or you know necessarily our brains getting more developed there is a sense that there's almost this sexual union between us and our technology and i think that it's explored in this movie in a really interesting way i mean that scene where he's making out with a nikki brandon a television he sticks his head in and ended the television is pulsating in his vein he like it's a fucking dick or something is so good how the fuck do they do that i literally baker do that anyone in a guest as you know the fact that i don't know is what makes rick baker amazing you know like like that that's why no matter what you see today in any marvel movie or any special effects driven movie.
