HolidazeBlog Halloween Challenge Day 6: Favorite Horror Character
I think my response could easily change depending on how I'm to take the question ie favorite in what way? I'll give you two.
1. Character I want to be or aspire to be like: Chief Martin Brody from Jaws
2. Character that scares me as a villain: Michael Myers
These two represent the polar opposites for me. As a kid I'd play Brody, chasing and killing the shark. Rarely did I venture into Quint territory. While I often won't refer to Jaws as a true Horror movie, I considered it one as a child, and so Brody I love. This guy is righteous and flawed but funny and good. He smokes a lot. He shoots his gun a lot. He kills the bad guy twice. He knows how to get angry and deliver great one liners. I watched Jaws on endless repeat as a kid and always admired Chief Brody as a father and as a hero.
For my money, Jeff Zornow draws Myers the best in comic form. That's why I used his pic to represent my favorite baddie.
