Hey, making really good special effects makeup and prosthetics is a real craft, and even when it goes bad deserves more respect than thrown-together CGI. But just because it deserves respect, doesn’t mean it doesn’t also deserve ridicule. That being said, let’s take a look at some of the least successful makeup and prosthetics in movies!

Here he is with Leonardo DiCaprio as old J. Edgar Hoover, who I swear to God has to be melting, otherwise his appearance makes no sense. It is just not easy to make young people look old.

If you try too hard to make your insane dream killer look like an actual burn victim, he becomes less scary, and more… like an actual burn victim.

I don’t think this actually looks that bad, I just think it’s funny that they made him sit in makeup for probably like 12 hours for what ended up being a two minute show.

Would you have known this was supposed to be a chimpanzee if no one told you?

That’s Hugo Weaving, whose eyes have been all Asian-ed up. Does he look Asian? No. Does he look like a racist underground magazine’s cartoon of what an Asian would look like? Well…

Dan Aykroyd was once one of the most exciting young talents in comedy, and his directorial debut featured an old judge with a penis for a nose.

 

 

We started with a penis, and we ended with a penis! What a time to be alive!
