Every Halloween, monster maker / creature effects legend Rick Baker transforms his entire family with a themed range of makeup that he spends days preparing. In 2015 he and his two daughters became variations of the Joker, in 2016 he re-created the doctor, nurse, and patient from the Twilight Zone episode “Eye of the Beholder”, and last year he turned his daughters into characters from The Strain.
This year, with the help of his daughters, Baker revisited the work that won him the first Academy Award for Best Makeup in 1981 – a little film called “An American Werewolf in London”.
Here’s his daughter Veronica as Jack (Jackie?) “Meatloaf” Goodman, who went to work today like all good and industrious werewolf murder victims do:
And here’s his daughter Rebecca as David (Danielle?) Kessler. She stayed home from work today, but I hope she went to the mall (or Piccadilly Circus) so people can get a look at this incredible work:
Now we know why Baker was revisiting some of his “American Werewolf” work last week!
