Vampire’s Kiss – Horror Home Decor

Today in Horror Home Decor-land is our 1st requested look, the Nicolas Cage edition.

This look was requested by ReyShelley after the Rockabilly Monsters Home Decor Post:

Rey also said that her favorite Nicolas Cage movies were the Vampire’s Kiss and Face/Off, neither of which I’d actually seen before, so I watched them. Face/Off, yes. Fantastic movie. But The Vampire’s Kiss? I laughed my pants off while watching that movie. (So Rey, thank you for mentioning them!)tumblr_m8lm51iPCm1qg39ewo1_500

Seriously, if you’ve never seen it, do yourself a massive favor and revel in the insanity that is Nick Cage in this film. It’s one of the most hilarious things I’ve ever seen. (You can watch it on Amazon for free with a trial of Amazon Prime or a pretty dramatically cropped version of it on YouTube.
So, most of this Horror Home Decor post is going to be focused on the Vampire’s Kiss specifically, but I have a few broader ideas for the Nick Cage fans among us.

Vampires Kissing in the Bedroom

For this look I was aiming for tapping into the NYC vibe by choosing grey walls and black-out curtains to tie into that amazing scene where Cage is chomping down on his pillows. I also thought it would be cool to find a fireplace similar to the one in his living room set and to add some unexpected elements of bats. (Because that lone unexpected bat in the opening kind of got things rolling down the path of insane vampire.) And of course, no room is complete with out some killer artwork. The telephone booth scene OlechkaDesign recreates is still making me laugh.

Black couches in the Movie Room

Vampire Kiss Living Room

For the movie room/ living room look, I kind of imagine setting it up like an in home theater. Big back-lit or framed movie posters, gallery hung on the walls, with little elements here and there that tie into the movie.

  2. Nick Cage “You Don’t Say” watercolor print
  3. Face/Off Poster
  4. Vampire Teeth mug

But mostly, You have to make sure you get a black leather couch. Otherwise, how else would you re-enact the “SUNLIGHT?!” scurry?

Nick Cages through the Ages

I have a couple ideas on how to show your love for the ages of Nicolas Cage.

The first is to have a gallery wall of Nicolas Cage movie Posters and reprints. I’ve added links to all of the genre poster reprints I could find.

  1. Face/Off
  2. The Wicker Man
  3. The Vampire’s Kiss
  4. Season of the Witch
  5. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
  6. The Frozen Ground
  7. Drive Angry
  8. Pay the Ghost
  9. Knowing
  10. Bringing out the Dead
  11. Left Behind
  12. Dying Light
  13. Grindhouse

Second is to have a floating shelf of mixed collectibles. DVDs, VHS, and Framed posters in chronological order. Something like these overstuffed picture shelves from ApartmentTherapy .com.

And here’s some other Items I thought would be hilarious nods to The Vampire’s Kiss:

As a final thought, you should go check out ReyShelley’s blog, Fancy Ferret Studios, where beautiful artwork like this Fancy Nicolas Cage is posted.
