Default The TOM ATKINS thread

Good old Tom Atkins,eh?
Great genre actor,he's certainly done the rounds in the horror genre.

So I reckon,he deserves a thread of his own.

Notable films include:

THE FOG
NIGHT OF THE CREEPS
HALLOWEEN III SEASON OF THE WITCH
MANIAC COP
CREEPSHOW
LETHAL WEAPON
ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D
TWO EVIL EYES
THE NINTH CONFIGURATION
Also made TV appearances in M*A*S*H,THE EQUALIZER,THE ROCKFORD FILES and ST ELSEWHERE.

It's rumoured he's gonna be in the supposed HALLOWEEN 3D as well.

A native of Pittsburgh Pensylvania,Tom we at Cult Labs salute you!
May your genre career continue!

"Thrill Me!"

Tom Atkins is a genre favourite of mine ever since I saw him in The Fog and Escape From New York.

I've just watched the Night of the Creeps Blu-Ray. There's a good featurette on Tom Atkins. It's basically an interview segment of him talking about the highlights of his career.

It was an excellent featurette. I could have listened to Tom talk about his career for a few hours more.

I remember that episode of MASH which featured Tom Atkins. A TASH FREE APPEARANCE.
Hey Reaper, I was very upset when the MANIAC COP chucked Tom out the window. NOT COOL.
