Back in August, Shock first introduced you to the works of Travis Falligant, an artist who introduced the Scooby-Doo gang to a variety of horror movie villains in a series of fun illustrations. He's still at it, recently revealing three new pieces that draw inspiration from My Bloody Valentine, The House on Sorority Row and Maniac Cop 2. Check 'em out in the gallery below along with his previous art.

I am ride or die for indie horror films. When I say “indie,” I’m not referring to films with only one million dollar budgets in comparison to $100,000,000 budgets. I’m talking about the films that won’t show up on Netflix instant watch and the films that you can only find if you buy directly from the director at their convention table. I’ve spoken many times before on the incredible experience that is the Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo. It’s a convention devoid of guests that charge insane amounts of money for signatures because they’ve been on One horror related television show, but rather a place to celebrate the people that starred in the roles of yesteryear that we’ve worshiped over time. Cinema Wasteland is also a breeding ground for some of the most unique films that would otherwise go completely unnoticed. Thanks to the Wastelanders, »
