the dead: The Gravedancers (the makeup)

The Gravedancers (the makeup)

After the funeral of a old friend who died in a car accident, former school friends Harris, Kira (Josie Maran), and Sid break into the local cemetery after dark, and dance on three graves. Soon they three find themselves haunted by the ghosts of those whose graves they had desecrated.

Harris and his wife Allison find themselves haunted by the ghost of Emma (Martha Holland), a deranged female pianist and axe murderer, while Kira is haunted by the ghost of a sadistic rapist.

The makeup

The makeup for the ghostly Kira was done against a tight time constraint – Josie Maran was only cast in the role three days before filming commenced.

Rebecca Wachtel was the makeup department head; Mike Elizalde’s Spectral Motion was responsible for creature effects and Norman Cabrera was lead artist.
