Harry Warden Returns

My Bloody Valentine is one of my favorite slasher flicks. I enjoy movies where the killer could be anyone underneath the costume. I spent a good part of this year assembling the miner costume from the MBV 3D remake that was released earlier this year. Chris Carnel is the stuntman/actor who played the miner in the film. I absolutely loved his performance! I had the pleasure of meeting Chris at a convention last year and he is the most down to earth friendly guy.

Shortly after Halloween a friend and I drove to a county park with real caves, a perfect setting to photograph me as Harry Warden. Unfortunately most of the pictures did not turn out.
I've been wanting to go back to the caves and do a reshoot. This weekend, Ames and I set aside time but found out the park is closed for the year. Needless to say we had to find an alternate location. A week ago I discovered an old shut-down alcohol plant nearby. I spoke with the owner and was granted permission to take pictures there. We were not allowed inside the building as it was being rented, so we had to be creative outside. We talked our friend Julie into playing the "victim" in some shots. We had lots of fun and the shoot went very well. I wish we could have been there closer to dusk but we made the most of it. Here are a few of my favorite shots of the miner.
