Ash from Army of Darkness – By David Hardy

An awesome caricature by David Hardy. After I posted Dave’s last artwork of Daryl from The Walking Dead, Dave asked who I’d like to see next! Who to choose… I went for everyone’s favourite undead slayer Ash from Army of Darkness. Awesome as usual.

Despite The Gods – Trailer

Despite-The-Gods-CoverJennifer Lynch, daughter of cult film auteur David Lynch, made her auspicious directorial debut in 1993 with cult classic Boxing Helena. She was the youngest American woman to direct a feature film, and after that she took an extended hiatus.

Fifteen years later, a recovering addict and hard-working single mother, Lynch returns to the director’s chair with an ambitious project that will test her skills and the entire crew’s sanity.

Despite the Gods brings us behind the scenes on the set of Lynch’s Bollywood/Hollywood action film about a man-eating snake goddess.

In the spirit of LOST IN LA MANCHA and OVERNIGHT, Penny Vozniak, friend of one of the producers hired on to do behind-the-scenes on HISSS, ended up chronicling Lynch slowly losing her grip over a much-extended eight-month shoot.


The Nightmare – Trailer

A look at a frightening condition that plagues thousands; sleep paralysis. Directed by Rodney Ascher (Room 237), The Nightmare recreates the hypnagogic hallucinations that these people experience… terrifying shadowmen, spectral cats, sudden spiders and menacing spirits…


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – By Gabz

texas_REGULAR_final_1_1024x1024texas_VARIANT_final_1024x1024The Texas Chainsaw Massacre by Gabz: Being a huge fan of what Jason Edmiston and Florian Bertmer did for the same title before me, as hard is it was, I wanted my piece to be something completely different. I’ve been wanting to work on something more editorial-looking for months, and with a title as long as this one, I felt it’s a perfect opportunity not to be wasted.

Since viewers of this classic horror flick are meant to believe it’s based on a true story, custom-designed typo that looks like a front page of some crazy newspaper seemed like a right thing to do.Instead of focusing on just one scene or character, I included several plot points and all the essential characters destined (or not) to end up on Sawyer’s dining table.

Prints available on Thursday April 30 between 1-2 p.m. EST HERE

John Carpenter – Night

Video for the track ‘Night’ from John Carpenter’s debut album of non-soundtrack material which is out now on Sacred Bones. Video by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst: “Upon hearing “Night” by John Carpenter my head was instantly filled with these nighttime highway road dreamscapes. Someone or something, haunted, traveling the road alone in the late hours.”
