Charley Rossman has been in many films where he normally plays bit parts. He oftentimes gets the role of a security guard or a police officer. In Superbad, we witness this burly daddy bear practically decapitating poor Jonah Hill with a broken bottle of Goldslick Vodka.
And in the upcoming film, Finding Amanda, he plays the role of a Security Guard. But, this time, instead of being the arm of the law inside a Grocery Store, he’s now inside a Casino. Finally. A promotion!
“Christine” was one of my early introduction to horror films (“Alien” being my all-time favorite); and it made such an impact on me that I became a horror fan. John Carpenter actually made killing people, well, “cool” to my impressionable mind. I’m talking about early Carpenter stuff such as “Halloween,” “Halloween II,” and “The Thing.” With “Christine,” he has perfected a symphony of death by blending haunting synthesized music with classic 50’s songs.
If you haven’t seen the film, I highly recommend it. Obviously, this is a semi-spoiler, but this is the scene called “The Death Of Moochie Welch”…
The following are screenshots of Mr. Danare who also gave me a good reason to keep watching this movie on Betamax, over and over, back in the day.
