Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas Movies that have fun special fx. Todays pic is Scrooged (1988) starring the hilarious Bill Murray in a remake of the classic Charles Dickens’s 1843 novel, A Christmas Carol. I think I may be showing my age in my selection of movie, but I feel like this one is a must-see.
You want special makeup fx for Christmas, this ones has plenty. I loved John Forsythe’s dried up, back-from-the-dead makeup, as he warns Bill Murray what will happen to him that night. Although I also enjoyed the screaming souls under the Ghost of Christmas Future and the butt-kicking Ghost of Christmas Present.
I noticed that there are two Burmans on the makeup departments roster. Anyone who does special makeup fx has used foam latex products from Burman Industries.
Synopsis: A heart warming story about a cold-hearted TV executive. He is visited by ghost and learns the true meaning of Christmas.
