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 coolest image I saw this week was this brand new poster for Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, the sequel to 2009’s incredibly fun horror-comedy. From the tagline to the imagery, this poster is sheer brilliance, and without question the best horror art I’ve seen this year. Can’t wait to see the reaction the poster gets from house guests, when I hang it up in my living room (eek). Dead Snow 2 is set for release on October 10th.
The internet has of course been dominated all week by those Ice Bucket Challenges, where people dump freezing cold water on themselves in an effort to raise money – and awareness – for the crippling disease ALS. I had been patiently sitting back all week waiting for someone to do a fun Gremlins-inspired take on the challenge – you can’t get those Mogwai wet, after all – and artist Jose Fragoso satiated that desire with this adorable art. Don’t do it, Giz… it’s a trap!
Another fun thing that took the internet – particularly the horror community – by storm this week is Travis Falligant‘s Scooby Doo/horror mash-ups, wherein he draws horror icons into the cartoon. He’s done a whole bunch of them and this is one of his most recent drawings, as well as one of my favorites. Just please don’t move your head, Fred. Head over to Travis’ website to see many more!
As far as recent horror-comedies go, they don’t get much better than Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, which put a brilliant spin on the familiar horror movie trope of backwoods dudes being killers. Today, Fright Rags released an entire collection of products inspired by the movie, including several different shirts and even a replica of the trucker hat Dale wears in the film. Be sure to browse the collection, if you’re a fan!
Next month is the annual Mask Fest convention, kicking off September 5th in Indianapolis, Indiana. The top mask makers in the world show off their handmade masterpieces at the event and this year artist Daniel Horne will have on display his tribute bust to late Texas Chain Saw Massacre star Jim Siedow, which is needless to say an incredible work of art. Goddamn, some people just get all the talent, don’t they?!
Don’t remember who shared this on Facebook but I got quite the kick out of it, as the figure pictured is of course Tiny from The Devil’s Rejects. Always boggles my mind when people ask questions on the internet that could easily be answered by simply running a quick Google search. Going the latter route can save you a lot of humiliation, as this dude unfortunately didn’t realize!
Remember that moment in Shaun of the Dead where Shaun poses for a picture with a zombie, which is taken by Ed? After all these years, this picture recently surfaced, which is the exact photo that Ed took, during that scene. Not sure who released this, or why it took so long for us to see it, but a pretty cool little picture for fans of the film – and who isn’t a fan of that film?!
And finally, we’ve got an awesome Evil Dead 2 poster from artist Randy Ortiz, which went up for grabs last week courtesy of Mondo. As always, the poster – as well as its red-colored variant – sold out almost immediately, but I just wanted to share the art for anyone who missed it. My policy with Mondo posters has always been ‘look don’t touch’ anyway, since they’re typically too expensive and sell too quickly. But goddamn, is this one sexy or what?!
