Four Icon Challenge

I’ll be doing a number of the visual/design submitted assignments for ds106 in preparation for my talk with Martin Weller this coming week for our online film club bavathursdays. I’m working up to a 80s movie theme here, and I will be covering it from one too many angles in the coming posts—I apologize in advance for the onslaught of bad 80s movie visuals.

So, inspired by Tom, Megan, Alan, Lisa, and D’Arcy here is my attempt at the very fun four icon challenge assignment (thank you Timmmmyboy), keep in mind all my images were found through google search. I took the easy road with found art.

  1. awesome. I can hear the screaming fluid when the hot poker was stabbed into the petri dish sample…

    What movie is this?

  3. Tom says:

    I think it’s Old Yeller.

  4. It’s clearly The Monkees: Head (1968). Jim always sticks with the classics.

  5. Jim says:

    @Cali4Beach,

    This is the John Carpenter’s re-make of The Thing (1982). One of my favorite films of all time.

  6. Future topic for Bavathursdays: Eco-Horror movies of the 70s and 80s
    Stuff like Frogs, Food of the Gods, Piranha, Orca, Prophecy, hell, even Jaws. Just a thought…

  7. Oh, and SSSSSS, because the great and powerful Dirk Benedict was in it.

  8. John Carpenter’s The Thing is a classic. There’s a really creepy video game version which is incredibly difficult, but also very compelling. In the game you have to keep your colleagues from going insane and also figure out which of them is The Thing. It’s one of the few games that’s made me jump in fright.
