Remembering Alan Rickman today on what would have been his 71st birthday. Pictured above as Professor Severus Snape, together with Maggie Smith as Professor Minerva McGonagall from the Harry Potter series. Happy birthday Alan, may you rest in peace.
“every episode, these beautiful, esoteric americans go out of their way to create the worst, most broken, damaged, insecure, fragile messes that even god tried to sweep under the rug. and then the humor is all derived from how much they love these creatures and these people. if you bite all the way down to the chewy nougat at the center of monster factory, you’ll walk away with the feeling that no matter how flawed someone perceives themselves to be, someone out there loves them”
this film reviewer’s take on monster factory is very sweet and i recommend it
“Christmas and Easter bring wonderful treasures
But spirits and pumpkins bring far greater pleasures.
Phantoms and ghosts make wonderful hosts
And every year they convene,
To wish you a merry, shhh, creepy, Halloween”
