We close Halloween Week, in which we’ve been featuring screen shots of Timothy looking super-creepy, with probably the creepiest one of all. This is the final look he gives Seymour Cassel before he drives off into the night in The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976). Legend has it that the inspiration for this “gangster smile” was Tim’s pet eagle.
When one of Tim’s characters grins at you, you know you’re in deep trouble. It’s the predator baring his teeth before the attack. Run for your life!
