Harryhausen is still the best and Comet TV knows it

You may have heard of CometTV, the genre-loving channel with a growing presence.

During the month of May, they are rocking the world with a Ray Harryhausen marathon.

AND they want you to have a prize pack of Harryhausen stuff.

Check out these cool Harryhausen gifs first...





Then comment below on your favorite Harryhausen creation before June 1 to win the prize pack below.



Seem too easy? Yeah, it kind is. I wish I could win this stuff, but instead I'm going to give it to one of you.

  1. I first discovered his work in "Clash of the Titans," when I was a kid. Amazing stuff! Later, I saw "King Kong," and everything began to snap into place. I had to find Sinbad, and "Jason and the Argonauts." The process of filming those animated scenes must have been painstaking, but clearly he loved his work. There's an eerie quality about the movement that works so well with mystical/fantastic creatures!

  2. The Valley of Gwangi was fascinating to me as a child. The dinosaurs seemed so real and fierce! Modern monster movies owe a lot to Harryhausen and the techniques he pioneered!

  3. My favorite Harryhausen creature is The Cyclops from The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad...so brutal, so iconic. BUT...my favorite Harryhausen sequence is the battle between Tumak and the allosaurus in One Million Years B.C. The critter is ALIVE, with every part of its body moving in maliscious intent! And the death...it STILL makes me jump up and shout "DAMMNN!"

  4. As great as the skeleton fight is in Jason and the Argonauts, my favorite is the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Maybe it's because of the other Ray link.

  5. Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Harryhausen at a pre-release screening of Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. Only time I've heard applause for a stop-motion sequence!
