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?!
A handful of awesome new posters for upcoming horror films hit the net this week, the first of which was the very first official piece of art for The Green Inferno, Eli Roth’s loving ode to Italian cannibal flicks. As a huge fan of Roth’s films, this is the movie I’m most looking forward to seeing in the remainder of 2014, and I’m so excited that he finally made his way back behind the camera. It’s set for release on September 5th, courtesy of Open Road Films.
Speaking of Italian horror flicks, the grandaddy of them all is of course Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal Holocaust, which gets the Saturday morning cartoon treatment in this new shirt from Rotten Cotton. The company unloaded a whole batch of new shirts this week, including another two in tribute to Cannibal Holocaust, so be sure to head over there and check them out!
Another poster released this week that really caught my eye is this one for Willow Creek, another one of my most anticipated films of 2014. It’s a Bigfoot flick directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, and since those are two of my favorite things in the world, I absolutely cannot wait to check this one out. It hits VOD outlets next Friday, June 6th, and my ass will be on that couch watching as soon as I possibly can!
We wrap things up in the poster department with this incredibly cool promo art for a 10-minute short film called He Took His Skin Off For Me, which is set to premiere on the festival circuit in June. “A simple, domestic love story about a man who takes his skin off for his girlfriend, and why it probably wasn’t the best idea,” reads the plot description for what is sure to be a must-see short. How awesome is that poster?!
Putting a horrific spin on the classic ‘ship in a bottle’ art-form, this highly unique piece depicts one of the most iconic scenes from Jaws, and was made by the folks over on ShipInBottles.com. Head over there to see the entire process that went into making it. Too cool.
A few weeks back, a picture of Ben Affleck as Batman from the upcoming film Batman vs. Superman hit the net, which was so cool looking that it instantly won over everyone who had previously been bitching about the casting choice. For this fun mash-up, artist Fernando Peniche fused together BatFleck and a Xenomorph, with pretty badass results. Note the FaceHugger on the chest, in the place of the bat symbol!
Unhappy with the way that old VHS tapes are often cast aside and thrown in the trash, French artist Patrick Massobrio re-purposes them and turns them into awesome pieces of art, oftentimes depicting our favorite horror icons. This is his latest piece, which of course depicts the possessed Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist. See more of Patrick’s art over on his website, linked to above.
Just a few days back, Mattel unveiled this adorable upcoming release, which will be available exclusively through Matty Collector on June 16th. Measuring 12″ tall, Baby Skeletor is inspired by an episode of the show Robot Chicken and comes with a removable ‘Born to Rule’ t-shirt as well as a Havoc Staff rattle. As a huge life-long fan of Masters of the Universe, this unique collectible is a must-own for me, as it surely is for all fellow fans. It’ll be selling for $35, which is a small price to pay for such a precious little bundle of terror. Err… joy. Yea. That.
