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?!
Nothing says the holidays like getting your craft on and whipping up some DIY decor, and that’s precisely what my buddy Chris Bennett recently did. Chris runs the blog Cannibal Reviews and he just showed off this handmade wreath, inspired by Silent Night, Deadly Night. I love everything about this, and I think I’m going to make my own. In other words, I’m going to beg my wife to make one for me.
Speaking of Silent Night, Deadly Night, I also stumbled upon this colorful poster for the film, whipped up by artist Don Picton. I never tire of seeing SNDN fan art and this piece pretty much hits the nail on the head of everything I love about the movie – I mean come on… it’s even got Mr. Sims on it. You can grab an 18″x24″ print over in Don’s Etsy shop, FriendPrices, for just $20.
The company Rotten Rentals released their latest VHS mystery pack this week, which includes all sorts of goodies housed inside of a VHS case. The special holiday edition pack features a snazzy new piece of Black Christmas art designed by Patrick Carson Sparrow, and inside you’ll find things like horror trading cards, a vintage Black Christmas poster and random movie promo items. Makes for a great stocking stuffer, or a little holiday treat for yourself!
If you love horrific depictions of Christmas as much as I do then you’re going to want to add this new shirt to your closet, which comes courtesy of Cavity Colors. The holiday design is limited to only 100 shirts, available in both men’s and women’s styles. Once these sell out, they will never be printed again, so snatch one up if you dig it – $24, is what it will cost you.
Another brilliant bit of holiday crafting here from Veggie Macabre‘s Bill Webster, who hand-crafted the hands down coolest gingerbread house in the history of gingerbread houses. Yes, that’s the iconic Amityville Horror house, rendered in gingerbread. I think it’s safe to say you won Christmas this year, Bill. Just don’t eat those flies.
French artist Jeremy Pailler recently launched a new series entitled ‘Horror Genesis,’ which is home to the most uniquely beautiful pieces of horror movie art I’ve ever seen. They’re so outside the box that it’s almost not even immediately clear which movies some of them are depicting, which is quite refreshing. The one above is inspired by Insidious, and over on Jeremy’s site you’ll see similar art for movies like Cujo, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser.
I think we can all agree that the NES Jason craze has been milked for all it’s worth at this point, but I must admit that I’m still amused by fan-made products that capitalize on the unexpected phenomenon. Purple and blue Jason becomes a Christmas ornament thanks to online shop Elegonzo, so head over there if you want to bring a little 8-bit love to your tree.
We wrap up this week’s image wrap-up with one of the most downright majestic pieces of art you’ll ever see, dubbed ‘Man’s Best Friend.’ Tony Hodgkinson is the man responsible for this one, and you can grab a limited edition print for just $30 over on Hero Complex Gallery. Once it arrives, hang that shit over your bed. Because this the kind of thing you should be looking at while you’re fucking.
