Tail from the Crypt: Cooper Huckabee in “The Funhouse”

These days most folks might know actor Cooper Huckabee as wizened hillbilly sadist Joe Lee Mickens on HBO’s True Blood. But us horror fans have fond memories of a Huckabee of days gone by – namely as Buzz, the humpy hero of Tobe Hooper‘s gleefully deranged The Funhouse (1981).

With or without Huckabee, The Funhouse is an utter joy (it’s available on Netflix Instant, if you’re interested). But it’s definitely better with him – packed into the world’s tightest polo shirt and jeans, the actor is a beefcake wonder to behold. Is it a coincidence that my nom de blog happens to be the same as his character’s? Only my hairdresser knows for sure!

So let’s enjoy these images of Cooper in his prime, and try to forget about the whole Mickens shitshow, shall we? We heart Huckabee, indeed!

Strong man!

With Elizabeth Berridge

Yes, please!

A taste of the backside

Who ordered the himbo served sunny-side-up by a deranged robotic clown?

About Buzz

Buzz created CampBlood.org in 2003 to meet a need for a safe place for weirdos of all stripes to discuss horror movies from a queer perspective. Now that the campers have overtaken the Camp staff and locked them in the Arts & Crafts cabin he is questioning that decision.
