I first encountered Tom Savini's amazing makeup effects when I saw Friday the 13th in the theater. I learned his name reading about that movie, and I was excited to see other movies he worked on, like Dawn of the Dead and Creepshow.
I actually met the man in Chicago right after Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter came out.
We met back up this year in Charlotte, NC - and Tom Savini reveals that he knows all about good blogging:
Thanks a lot, Mr. Savini! Looking forward to our traditional 30 year reunion in 2044!
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
