So I was talking to Deej last night about cartoons from our childhood that we’d like to see again and that brought to mind one of my favorite movies that used to creep the hell outta me when I was a kid. It’s a little flick called Wizards.
Ever seen it? Not many people that I’ve talked to have but if you have it’s one of those movies you either love or hate. I know I just did a movie post yesterday but the post I intended for today isn’t ready yet and while this isn’t technically Halloween related it was scary (to me anyway) when I first saw it.
Rather than try to describe what Wizards is about I’ll let you watch the trailer instead.
Like Heavy Metal this was aimed at an adult audience instead of kids but kids still found ways of seeing it. I don’t remember how I saw it the first time but it’s been one of those movies that has stuck with me for a long, long time. I think what made Wizards such a different movie was it combined live action footage with animated but it was done in such a way that the live action looked animated as well. I don’t know if that sentence made any sense or not but if you watched the trailer you saw what I mean, if you didn’t watch the trailer then use your imagination!
The coolest part about Wizards (asides from Elinore’s perpetual nipple shot) was Peace. Peace is the guy up there on the poster, he was originally an assassin for Blackwolf but is zapped by Avatar and turned to the side of good. The other cool thing about Wizards? The character of Sean is voiced by Mark Hamill, pre-Star Wars, pre-Batman.
If your interested in watching Wizards, they actually have it on YouTube and I even saved you the trouble of looking for it!
I know this post is pretty light on content and I apologize, I’ll try to make it up to you on tomorrow’s post. Until then I’ll leave you with another bit of animation that creeped the hell outta me when I was younger courtesy of Heavy Metal.
