Best Make-Up – 1970

My Nominations: Beneath The Planet Of The Apes. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage. The Dunwich Horror.

No official category this year, as you well know, so you’ll have to put up with my picks scant as they are. There’s a wealth of crappy to average horror movies this year, The Dunwhich Horror just about scrapes by due to interesting ideas though it’s hackneyed and terribly dated now – decent make-up in places. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is much better and not as gory and stylized as Argento’s later efforts. While Beneath The Planet Of The Apes doesn’t really advance the work achieved in the early entry in the series, it does offer some mutants as well as the apes, and is still my choice as winner.

My Winner: Beneath The Planet Of The Apes.

    Great post 🙂 I probably would have picked that too. On a side note, I found this really neat video on youtube of filmmaker Terence Davies presenting 2001: A Space Odyssey on this old movie show from the 1980’s entitled “The Film Club” It was kind of like Moviedrome, only it had different guests and the titles were more well-known compared to Moviedrome’s entries though both shows were great even though I only have watched old youtube intros though not every single one of them. In a google search, type in “The Film Club” and space that and type “BBC2” but If you just want to see the Terence Davies intro, then type in “Terence Davies” space and then “2001: A Space Odyssey” Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
