hammer house of horror!

Peter Cushing is my favorite old horror actor. And he’s really such a dear old fella in his interviews. Best friends with frequent horror co-star Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price.

Seriously, he’s a hero.

OMG THAT JYN/KRENNIC COSTUME SWAP IS PERFECT. Haha yeah I can imagine a 5'3" ft Jyn next to a 6'0" ft Tarkin and them just glaring at each other XD. Speaking of which IF YOU EVER DRAW TARKIN I WOULD PROBABLY EXPIRE BECAUSE CUSHING'S FACE AND EYES IN YOUR STYLE?? OMG

I may have to draw Tarkin because Peter Cushing does seriously have like the most amazing face? I bet it’d be so much fun to capture.

I wish we could put him as Van Helsing in the Doctor Who comics- though I imagine getting the rights would be a total nightmare. Ages ago I was going to do a print of he and the Doctor going through a dark, Hammer Horror-style house, with Christopher Lee’s Dracula sneaking up on them- but it never got past the very rough layout stage -

Caught in a heatwave my husband and I decided to set the old VCR up in the living room because why not? Upon searching through our long neglected VHS collection I came upon this and a few others like it. I love the convenience of the digital age but how do you beat this gem? Hard copies for life.
