    That's a wicked painting! I don't know who a couple in the back are though. (the black and white one next to pee wee herman, and the guy right above chunk from Goonies... he looks familiar but I can't place him. Errrr, wait, I'm not sure about the guy with the shotgun now too... the guy I thought it was isn't really a "cult" type of thing. who is that?) :eek:

    I love Kevin Smith's movies. But even this is a little too odd for me.

    Ooooh yes, could be!

    I thought the same but then figured it was kind of obscure and not so cultish... <shrug> but they're not all major cult following type of things, just very memorable characters.

    I don't think that is Chunk from the Goonies. It looks more like the Texas Chainsaw baddie.

    No, leatherface is on the left in the back, to the left of Borat. I was talking about chunk, the kid, from goonies (image attached) - I wondered who the guy above him was (far right).

    K, everyone is confused. David Lynch is on the LEFT - the mystery guy is on the far RIGHT above Chunk.

    argh! <tears hair out>

    OK, lets make this easier....

    He looks so familiar and I can't place him. :eek:

    I'm surprised how many of these I recognise :) So can we get a complete list of people/ films and references?


    Scenery: Hollywood hills

    Back row L to R:

    Devine (Pink Flamingo)
    Pee Wee Herman (Pee Wee's Big Adventure)
    Ed Wood (Glen or Glenda)
    Leatherface (the Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
    Borat (Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan)
    ... (Point Break)
    ... (Point Break)
    Frank (Donnie Darko)
    David Lynch
    (feathery hand thing)
    ?? (bald man in black T)

    Front row:

    ?? (heart cushion on a stand)
    Silent Bob (Clerks etc)
    Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski (The Big Lebowski) + bowling ball from film
    Frank Booth (Blue Velvet)
    Alex (A Clockwork Orange)
    Nigel Tufnel (Spinal Tap)
    Frank n' Furter (Rocky Horror Show)
    Chuck (The Goonies)

    Foreground

    ?? heart cushion on a stand
    Lara Palmer (Twin Peaks) (in both photo and coffin?)
    ?? Purple wreath thing?
    ? Cat with toilet paper wrapped around it

    that's not Charles Manson, that's the dude (Jeff) from The Big Lebowski. <- might clear up the bowling ball thing for ya too.
    this might help too... edit: oh and this (so not safe for work or kids. at least 500 f words, but funny)

    the "I should know this" in the middle of the dude from The Big Lebowski and Alex is Frank Booth from the move Blue Velvet (I put a photo up in this thread earlier of him) -> [​IMG]

    Next to Alex from A Clockwork Orange is Jim Morrison. (at least I'm pretty sure) odd the guitar though because he didn't play. - Keith Richards would be a decent guess too though.

    there's also a cat with toilet paper wrapped around it. I can't think of the reference though.

    All the others were correct as I know it... except, who is that guy on the far right? :p

    Thanks iBlue. Have added your suggestions.

    Not sure about Jim Morrison as like you say, he didn't play guitar, and also he had slightly curly hair.

    I had to look 3 times before I saw the cat ...
