Juxtaposition Blogathon: Day 4

Two more days to go in the blogathon!

And wow. I cannot overstate how happy I am with today’s crop of submissions. These folks really went above and beyond. Give them some love!

  • First, the delightful/talented/lovely Christianne from Krell Laboratories penned “Once Too Often to the Weller,” evaluating RoboCop 3 (which does not star Peter Weller) and Leviathan (which does). She demonstrates a Kim Newman-esque knowledge and intuitive understanding of horror/sci-fi history as well as a great sense of humor, and this post is just a pleasure to read.
  • Next, the reliably great The Mike from From Midnight, With Love does a “Modern Horror vs. Not-So-Modern Horror Double Feature” five times over! It’s got love for House of the Devil, a hilarious graph, snakes, gators, and more. In other words, everything that’s beautiful in life.
  • Finally, Colin from Against The Hype gives us one last poignant, funny image juxtaposition entitled “F***ed: Actress Peak Performance Barometer?” Anything that contains both Heavenly Creatures and Safe makes me very, very happy.

If you have anything else to submit, please do so by tomorrow evening! (Stragglers will get linked to, even if it’s after the wrap-up post, so don’t fret.) I hope you’re having as much fun as we are. Now, on to the last day…

  1. I sent it with my other email, so maybe you guys didn’t see it, but here is the link for my post (House on Sorority Row compared to The Prowler via a comparison to Rush). Thanks!

  2. I guess I’ll be just in time with these submissions.

    First, one of my earliest juxtapositions, noting the similarities between the recent Patton Oswalt drama BIG FAN and the holiday cult favorite CHRISTMAS EVIL:

    Followed by a comparison/contrast in Scorsese’s BRINGING OUT THE DEAD and SHUTTER ISLAND:

    And finally, the peculiar overlap between an iconic ’70’s horror film and an iconic Radiohead song/video:

    Thanks for making this event happen!
