A few months ago, I wrote about the Crazy 4 Cult art exhibition, which was being hosted by Kevin Smith. I thought the artwork from the invite that Kevin posted was really interesting, so I thought we’d make a little game out of trying to name all of the movie characters featured there.

The originator of that artwork, Jeff McMillan, recently found that post and provided all of the answers for us in its comments. Note that the invitation from which I originally got the picture did not have the final version of the painting on it, which includes a few additional characters:

Crazy 4 Cult

The full list of answers, as provided by Jeff, is here (going roughly left to right, as my original key did):

  1. Divine as herself (Pink Flamingos)
  2. Funeral Bouquet (decoration)
  3. Paul Reubens as Pee Wee Herman (Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure)
  4. Kevin Smith as Silent Bob (Clerks)
  5. Johnny Depp as Ed Wood (Ed Wood)
  6. Jeff Bridges as The Dude (The Big Lebowski)
  7. Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
  8. Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat (Borat)
  9. Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth (Blue Velvet)
  10. Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves as Dead Presidents (Point Break)
  11. Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer’s Prom Photo (Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me)
  12. Malcolm McDowell as Alex de Large (A Clockwork Orange)
  13. Frank the Bunny (Donnie Darko)
  14. Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel (This Is Spinal Tap)
  15. Rick Moranis as Bob Mackenzie (Strange Brew)
  16. Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer (Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me)
  17. David Lynch
  18. Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter (The Rocky Horror Picture Show)
  19. Funeral Bouquet (decoration)
  20. Jeff Cohen as Chunk (The Goonies)
  21. A Fury from The Warriors (was previously Michael Rapaport as Remy in Higher Learning)
  22. A Zombie from Dawn of the Dead
  23. Stephen Root as Milton (Office Space)
  24. The Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story
  25. Mitch Cohen as the Toxic Avenger (The Toxic Avenger)

Aside from admiring (and being amused by) Jeff’s artwork, and grateful to him for sharing the answers with me and allowing me to exhibit images of it here, I’m also really impressed (and a good bit jealous) that Kevin Smith bought it from him! So in addition to saying “Great work!” on the piece, and “Thanks!” for sharing it and the “solutions” to its puzzles, I’d also like to say “Congratulations!” to Jeff not only for selling it, but for selling it to such a hero of mine who he also got to meet in the process. Very cool.

Jeff and Kevin
