Adams and Hooper, together in The Funhouse
I've mentioned it before, but The Funhouse is one hell of an enjoyable movie. It's a trippy movie, fully mocking the slasher phenomenon of time while appearing to be one, a full 16 years before Scream. It's got great locations, fine acting, and wonderful cinematography bu Andrew Laszlo( who also cinemagraphed First Blood,The Warriors, and You're a Big Boy Now).
Hooper was greatly influenced by EC Comics and naturally had a appreciation for the fire work of the artists involved. He picked one of the best ones, Neal Adams, to design sketches for the film. Hooper does the artwork justice and then some in this film. Check it out. it's even in it's entirety on Youtube( as of this moment)
