Have you ever woken up in the morning and looked in the mirror, and your hair is sticking up in every direction possible à la Bill Murray in the hilarious bowling comedy Kingpin? I unfortunately know not those joys in life, because I don’t have a lot of hair……but I bet horror icon Christopher Lee had a lot of those mornings! Why am I bringing up Christopher Lee? Oh, only because he has some of the best hair in a horror movie ever. And the movie I’m talking about is The Wicker Man! Not the terrible remake one.
Look at that. It’s majestic! If my hair could do that, I would never leave my mirror. The way it just almost dances off of his head…..swaying to and fro. It’s poetic. Either that or his hair is just trying to escape his head because it’s terrified. But nonetheless – Christopher Lee’s hair in The Wicker Man has now earned him the most coveted award and honor of all time! He and it have now been inducted into the class of Great Moments In Horror Hair History!!!! Unfortunately, this great man is no longer alive to enjoy this victory – but please honor him and watch The Wicker Man when you can. Not the terrible remake one.
