I just watched The Conjuring 2, and while it’s on my mind in a similar vein to this post, I also want to spread some appreciation for Javier Botet because GOD DAMN LOOK AT THIS SHIT
He has Marfan Syndrome, which is a rare connective tissue condition that gives him bizarrely elongated limbs and allows him to do unnatural things with his body, and he’s built quite a resume for himself appearing in horror movies
Like Doug Jones, he also appeared as three of the ghosts in Crimson Peak:
But you may have also seen him as The Crooked Man in The Conjuring 2:
Eddie’s leper in IT:
The Nina monster in all three REC movies:
Set, the God of Death in The Mummy (2017):
The titular creature in Mama:
He did motion capture work for the Xenomorph in Alien: Covenant:
And he most recently appeared in Insidious: The Last Key and the Slender Man movie!!
He’s done other more obscure horror movies too but basically this guy is adorable and inspiring and an amazing talent and I adore him 8D
dear diary: heather told me she teaches people “real life.” she said, real life sucks losers dry. you want to fuck with the eagles, you have to learn to fly. i said, so, you teach people how to spread their wings and fly? she said, yes. i said, you’re beautiful.
Favorite Movies: [09/?] The Lion King “ You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of life… Remember who you are. You are my son and the one true king. ”
