Amanda the Adventurer will remind you why many adults hate children’s shows. These colorful, innocent shows make children happy, but they bring the worst out of adults for some unknown reason. Remember the documentary where Barney’s voice actor gets death threats? The friendly high, pitched voice can be delightful to children, but to teens and adults, it’s torturing. The characters of shows marketed to toddlers also tend to have these big soulless eyes.
The gentleman in the beret in this article’s cover photo is my newest interview subject, Barney Burman. Barney has been active as a makeup artist for almost four decades now. Coming from a family of makeup artists, Barney started as a teenager, and isn’t showing any signs of stopping. That’s fantastic as he’s a versatile designer who has worked on all sorts of amazing projects, most notably 2009’s Star Trek, which won him a Best Makeup And Hairstyling Oscar, which he shared with Mindy Hall, who’s next to him in the cover photo, and Joel Harlow.
Yoichi Asakawa, Remember that creepy little boy from Ringu? Do you know the boy who watched that VHS tape that will kill him in 7 days?
Sadako Yamamura is one of the most influential horror movie villains from Japan. The Ring or Ringu is one of the most popular franchises of horror. Dead by Daylight is like the Hall of Fame, When it comes to horror. So it is only Natural for our Girl Sadako finally gets the recognition she deserves. Also she might be broke right now because VHS is not in circulation anymore. How can she make people die in 7 days if people are not watching anymore. (I know, this is only my lame attempt of a Joke because in the Japanese movie franchise she now uses the internet)
2002’s The Ring is regarded as one of the finest horror films of recent memory. Though the Japanese version it was based on is technically superior, its American remake managed to capture the same tension and creepy vibe of the original. What people remember most is the startling ending (now pretty much spoiled for newcomers thanks to pop culture saturation). Everyone knows she comes out of the TV, not as many know why that was such a shock.
