We’ve reached the end of another week – thank god! – which means it’s time to once again take a look at the coolest, weirdest and/or most awesome images that I’ve stumbled across on social media this past week.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?!
The big topic of discussion all around the internet this week is of course Godzilla, which stomped its way into theaters last night. Personally, I didn’t really care for the movie, for many reasons that were detailed in my review over on iHorror. One thing I did like about the movie, however, was Godzilla himself, who looked more badass and ginormous than ever, as this nifty little chart shows. So props to the movie for at least nailing the look of the big G… even if he’s not really in it all that much!
Speaking of monsters, artist Matt Ryan Tobin whipped up this awesome poster art for the 80s live-action movie based on one of my personal favorite monsters; My Pet Monster. The art is part of Bottleneck Gallery‘s new ‘Tapehead’ series, which pays tribute to movies from the glorious era of the video store, and it can be purchased over on their website for $40. Only 50 prints were made, so don’t hesitate to pick one up!
Last Sunday night was of course Mother’s Day, which prompted Wes Craven to tweet out this little virtual greeting card. It’s images like this one that make me so thankful for social media, and I encourage you to just spend a few minutes taking it all in. The shirt. The desktop background. The look on his face. It’s all just… too majestic for words.
I’ll admit that I’ve never seen a single episode of the David Lynch-created TV series Twin Peaks, which ran from 1990 to 1991, though that’s something I’ve long been meaning to change. Nevertheless, this is one of the coolest pieces of home video art I’ve seen in a while, and I figured it was worth mentioning, for those of you who love the show. The Blu-ray set is due out July 29th and will include both seasons of the show, the prequel film and even 90-minutes of deleted and alternate scenes, which have never before been seen. Perfect opportunity for me to finally play catch up? I’m thinking yes!
The biggest bummer of the week was of course the passing of H.R. Giger, who’s most known for designing the titular creature in the original Alien. Whenever a geek God like Giger passes away, you can always count on somehow to draw up a tribute that’s both heartwarming and utterly heartbreaking, and this is definitely the one for this particular situation. If anyone knows who drew this, please let me know, so I can give them the proper credit.
It’s not uncommon for Fright Rags to come up in this weekly feature, and that’s because they’re consistently churning out cool shit. This latest offering, unveiled this week, is one of my favorite shirt designs they’ve put out in a while, which fuses together some of the most popular horror icons with that iconic Garbage Pail Kids style. The design is available on three different shirts and pre-orders begin next Friday, lasting for one week only. Find all the details over on Fright Rags.
I recently collaborated with the awesome company Horror Decor on a Jason Voorhees ‘Horror Buddy,’ inspired by the old WWF Wrestling Buddies that I loved so much as a kid. The company just announced this week that Motel Hell‘s Farmer Vincent is the next icon to get the Horror Buddy treatment, which will be available beginning May 19th. In the meantime, the Jason buddy is still available, so be sure to head over to Horror Decor to check it out and/or grab one!
The latest addition to NECA’s growing line of full-size replica Gremlins props is ‘Flasher Gremlin’ from the sequel, which was unveiled and put up for pre-order earlier in the week. Measuring nearly 30″ tall and as screen accurate as you can get, Flasher Gremlin is limited to only 1,000 pieces and he’s selling for $274.99. If you want one, it can be pre-ordered through Amok Time.
