Body Bags a.k.a. John Carpenter Presents Body Bags (1993)Directed by John Carpenter and Tobe HooperWhat a great title for a movie! In 1993, Showtime Network released "Body Bags", this anthology horror film (oh, how I love those), with three segments and a framing story.It begins with morgue worker John Carpenter commenting that bodies of people who died of natural causes aren't really interesting – however, when people die because of suicide or murder, their bodies come in these black body bags. And we then see stories about three of the corpses. The first one, "The Gas Station", features Anne (Alex Datcher from "Passenger 57") on the first day of her job on the night shift at a gas station, with a serial killer on the loose. The second, "Hair", is about Richard (Stacy Keach) who is balding, and will do anything to have a full head of hair. The third one, "Eye", is about Brent (Mark Hamill) who loses an eye in an accident, and gets a transplant, only to experience horrific visions.The first segment, directed by Carpenter, is the one I enjoyed the most, I thought it was effectively crafted and suspenseful. The second one, also by Carpenter, was a more comedic affair and I didn't like the ending ("They Live"-esque but not as effective). The third, directed by Tobe Hooper was good but kind of predictable.Overall though, I think it's nostalgia – they don't make movies like this anymore – I really loved watching this. It has a great cast, good acting and is fun. I loved the end credits music, by John Carpenter and Jim Lang. It reminded me of the "Big Trouble in Little China" song. Several cameos and familiar actors can be spotted in this. About a decade later, Showtime Network premiered their "Masters of Horror" series.I drew John Carpenter as the Coroner from the film, in the form of a 1990s style video poster on a matchbox (actual size)! This is because, @creativekumari started a #ckmatchboxseries of drawings and I thought I'll contribute one as well. This was drawn with @prismacolor pencils and 2B 0.5mm mechanical pencil on A6 Brustro sketchbook and scanned. I'm posting a photo on @karthikabhiram also.#413 / 8-Feb-19
