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?!
Earlier in the week, the nominations for the 2014 Emmy Awards were announced, and many – including myself – were both shocked and confused to see that NBC’s Hannibal wasn’t nominated for a single award. I hope this picture of a pretty awesome Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen version) custom figure soothes the blow just a wee bit, though I’m right there with you if you find yourself inconsolable right now. Really, guys? REALLY?!
I made a post this week here on HL about the coolest 2014 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive toys, and this one most definitely would’ve made its way onto there, had it been revealed sooner. Funko’s adorable tribute to one of the saddest moments in television history is without question one of the most depressing toys ever made, making me feel the feels all over again. Just look at that sad face. Breaks. My. Heart.
In celebration of A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s 30th anniversary, artist Nathan Thomas Milliner released this art print yesterday, limited to only 50. It completely sold out within a couple hours, which is not surprising given how awesome it is. If you’re a fan of Nathan’s art, check out his top 10 favorite horror films, exclusively here on Halloween Love!
Speaking of Elm Street, my friend Chad E. Young of the blog Horror Movie BBQ posted this vintage Batman merchandise ad on his Facebook page, which I had somehow never seen before. Why am I sharing it here on Halloween Love? Because that’s none other than Heather Langenkamp modeling the Batman biking outfit, who of course played Nancy Thompson in the Elm Street films. Who knew?!
The fine folks over on the website Culturally Significant whipped up this art for a faux Re-Animator NES video game, which has left me itching to re-animate some 8-bit corpses. Always love Photoshop art like this, which creates fake fantasy products. If only!
One of my most anticipated movies is Kevin Smith’s Tusk, about a podcaster who comes upon a crazed man who wants to turn him into a human walrus. This poster art for the highly intriguing film hit the net a few days ago, which I absolutely love. Smith himself echoed that sentiment, saying that it perfectly reflects the film. Tusk is set for release sometime this fall.
Always warms my heart when fans take horror-themed wedding photos, with this one proving that the couple that slays together stays together. Here’s to hoping that they get along a whole lot better than Freddy and Jason have proven themselves capable of!
And finally, this hilarious Facebook conversation was shared by Todd Farmer, the writer of Jason X and My Bloody Valentine 3D. A ‘fan’ started off his conversation with Todd by bashing Jason X, and then went on to ask him for screenwriting advice. Take note, aspiring filmmakers; bashing someone’s movie isn’t exactly the best way to get them to help you. You never cease to amaze me, human beings.
