House of 1000 Corpses – Rainn Wilson
Day 3: creepiest dead body Okay this was harder for me to pick then expected since dead bodies don't freak me out like most people but I went ahead and chose fishboy from rob zombie's 2003 horror/slasher film house of 1000 corpses. Quick film synopsis: Two teenage couples traveling across the backwoods of Texas searching for urban legends of murder end up as prisoners of a bizarre and sadistic backwater family of serial killers. #onestophorror #horrorloverchallange #robzombie #robzombiefilm #houseof1000corpses #fishboy #billhudley #rainnwilson #theoffice #dwightschrute #horrorfilm #horrorlover #horrorloversunite
Rainn Wilson plays Bill Hudley, who is part of a group of two couples who go off exploring Texas to try and find out more about a local horror legend Dr Satan. After getting a flat tyre, they are dragged off against their will to a family of serial killers who suck them into their disturbing activities.
Bill Hudley wears a retro pair of horn-rimmed glasses in the film, which is a look super easy to copy! Get the style with the Ray-Ban RX6317. This stylish pair is a classic which will keep you looking on-trend for many years to come!
The Invisible Man – Claude Rains
#theinvisibleman #trivia 🎃 -Although he has the lead in the film and his character is onscreen for 95% of the film, Claude Rains never actually "appears" onscreen until the very last moment. -They say there’s going to a remake of the film starring Johnny Depp, as part of the Universal Monster reboot. No other news have been released. #clauderains #classicsuggestions
A classic horror film created in 1933, The Invisible Man is based on the novel of the same name which was written by H.G.Wells in 1897.
The film is all about ‘The Invisible Man’ also known by his surname Griffin, who is played by Claude Rains. He is a scientist and discovers a way to become completely invisible, but in doing so also becomes completely insane. He needs to find a way to reverse his experiment, but there will be plenty of murders along the way!
Rains spends the majority of the film covered in bandages and sunglasses and only reveals his appearance right at the very end.
Get his look with the Versace VE2176. These super trendy oversized round sunglasses would make the perfect fancy dress look teamed with lots of bandages!
