Frankenstein

Creature Features joined forces with Sideshow Collectibles in 1995 to unveil one of the company’s first and finest achievements with their epic interactive vinyl model kit based on Bernie Wrightson’s FRANKENSTEIN.

Masterminded by sculptor and Sideshow creator Dan Platt, this elaborate 28-piece 1/8th scale diorama instantly raised the bar on hobby kits with its exhaustive attention to detail, uncanny sense of motion and sheer execution.

Wrightson himself flew in from the east coast to partake in the festivities joining Sideshow crew members Platt, Ken Morgan, Tom Gilliland and Greg Anzalone.

Also on hand with his own classic rendition of FRANKENSTEIN was sculptor Gino Acevedo representing his stunning, then-new 1/1 scale bust of Boris Karloff ‘s FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER manufactured by CineArt. Acevedo has since relocated to New Zealand to become one of the key artists at WETA working on Peter Jackson’s LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy, KING KONG and many others.

Other notables in attendance included writer/director Frank Darabont, authors David J. Schow and Christa Faust, actor Daniel Roebuck and make-up FX artists Greg Nicotero of KNB-FX, Jim McPherson and Brent Baker.

ON SET WITH JOHN CARPENTER BOOK Gallery Exhibit and Book Signing

Creature Features welcomed author/photographer Kim Gottlieb-Walker for an unprecedented gallery exhibit and book signing celebrating her brand new book ON SET WITH JOHN CARPENTER.

When Carpenter’s producing partner Debra Hill hired Gottlieb-Walker to be the unit photographer on Halloween, Kim soon became part of Carpenter’s filmmaking family, going on to shoot stills on the sets of some of his most iconic films: HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, HALLOWEEN II and CHRISTINE.

Collected together in this book and in our gallery for the first time was the best of that on-set photography, with iconic, rare, and previously unseen images.  From production stills to candids of the stars between takes and the crew in action, alongside portrait shots of the actors who would eagerly pose for Kim, the book and exhibit gave an unprecedented glimpse into the action on set with John Carpenter.

The celebration also saw a visit from actor Brian Andrews, who played young Tommy Doyle in HALLOWEEN.
