Another year has passed and another inktober series is at hand. I decided to do another horror movie series to prepare us for Halloween. I am a huge horror fan. I enjoy trying to pair movies I’ve seen with the different prompts. Sometimes it can be very difficult but this year I have successfully paired a movie with each prompt.
So let’s start with our first prompt, Gargoyle. There are not too many gargoyle horror movies out there… well, good ones at least. There is a movie with the title “Gargoyles” from 1972 which within the first fifteen minutes seemed as though it was going to be a very entertaining movie and then gradually changed into something that was laughable (and not in a good way). I almost couldn’t finish it but I did and it was so bad. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Then I remembered “Tales from the Darkside” which originally was a TV show but a movie was made with the same name in 1990. I watched it quite a while ago but I do remember being entertained and enjoying it. It was about a young boy captured by an evil old woman that was going to cook him up for dinner. To distract the woman, the boy told her different stories to prolong her meal preparation. One of the stories was about a gargoyle which is all I will say as to not spoil the movie. So I decided that this would be the gargoyle I would choose for my sketch.
So one down, thirty more to go! Let the horror/monster fest begin!
Have you ever seen the movie, Tales from the Darkside? What did you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Check back tomorrow for Inktober prompt #2, scurry.
Take care Free Spirits…or should I say, Freaky Spirits!
