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 I’ve stumbled across on the internet this week.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?!
Last week I shared with you a sneak peek image of the ornament from Fright Rags‘ upcoming Silent Night, Deadly Night box set, and this week the company unveiled everything that will be in the collection. Releasing December 9th, the set includes a t-shirt and even an ugly Christmas sweater, plus the ornament and a stocking. It’s all housed inside of a gift-wrapped package, labeled ‘To Billy.’ Hands down the ultimate piece of SNDN memorabilia, and a MUST for all hardcore fans!
My buddy Eric Swartz (The Art of Horror) just started an art project wherein he’s whipping up images of faux vinyl toys, in the style of Funko’s fan-favorite POP! figures. Up first is this Hellraiser collection, including Pinhead and his three main Cenobites. I’m actually surprised Funko hasn’t yet picked up the Hellraiser license, though I wouldn’t be surprised to see these soon become reality!
Makeup effects artist Jamie Kelman showed off this still from next year’s Goosebumps movie over on his Facebook page, giving us our first glimpse at one of the monsters from the book ‘Attack of the Jack-O’-Lanterns.’ The movie will feature many of the iconic monsters from R.L. Stine’s books, which will be unleashed from the pages to wreak havoc up on the big screen. If there’s any film I’m looking forward to next year, more than any other, it’s definitely this one.
Earlier this year, a Kickstarter fund was started in an effort to turn the FANTASTIC documentary Never Sleep Again into a coffee table book, and copies began shipping out to backers this week. Unlike the doc, the book only covers the original film, and from what I understand it was only available through the fundraising campaign. In other words, if you didn’t snag a copy back then, you might want to run a search on eBay!
Artist Nik Holmes from Zombie Dollar Creative is the brain-child behind this kid-friendly book, which uses horror icons to teach kids the alphabet. W, for example, is for Carrie White, and a fun little poem on each page tells kids a bit about each character. Head over to Nik’s Etsy shop to see some preview pages and grab a copy for a mere $10!
One of my favorite artists in the horror art game is Aaron Crawford, who churns out all sorts of tasty delights through his company Cavity Colors. This week, Aaron launched his ‘Deadly Desserts’ series, wherein he turns his favorite movie monsters into sugary treats. Ghostface, the Blob, a C.H.U.D. and an alien invader from They Live got the treatment, and prints are selling for $15 each. Tasty!
I’m a total cat person, but even I was tempted to adopt a dog after seeing this incredibly clever leash. Yes, that is indeed a dog leash inspired by Alien, making it appear as if your canine friend is being embraced by a Face-Hugger. The price is steep, at $150 apiece, but these are completely handmade and I can’t think of a better Christmas gift for your horror-loving dog than this. Get yours over in the Gotham City FX shop!
We wrap things up for the week with this screen-grab of Norman Reedus’ phone from this past Sunday night, which gave me a good laugh. Last weekend’s episode of The Walking Dead was centered on Daryl and Carol, and Reedus tweeted out this photo of his mom trolling on him. Moms will be moms, even in the post-apocalypse!
