Update: We’ve added a second video below that explains how Catherine Bell was selected as Meryl Streep’s body double to allow them to work out how to create the on-screen effect of Meryl’s body getting younger and tighter beneath her clothing.
One of the highest grossing zombie movies of all time ($149 million worldwide) is Robert Zemeckis incredibly underrated 1992 horror comedy Death Becomes Her, which starred Meryl Streep as a woman learning of an immortality treatment that she sees as a way to outdo her long-time rival (played by Goldie Hawn). Bruce Willis stars as the doctor mixed in the mess. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies that has been on and off of Netflix the past year.
When you love something, you always want more, which is why DVD and Blu-ray extras are so widely cherished. Thanks to StudioADI, we’re celebrating the film’s 20th anniversary by going behind-the-scenes of the building and shooting the various animatronic duplicates of Meryl Streep!
This Academy-Award winning film (Best Visual Effects 1993) showcases the first use of silicone as an animatronic skin for a feature film (with beautifully subtle coloring by Gino Acevedo). Enjoy!
