Stunning Horror Film Watercolor Art Series By Artist Christopher Shy

If you're not familiar with the art of Ronin a.k.a. Christopher Shy, you've got to check out this collection of horror movie-themed watercolor poster art that he has created. There's art here for films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Salem's Lot, They Live, The Fog, Event Horizon, Alien, and The Thing. I also included art for Blade Runner and Blade Runner: 2049.

I really dig the artist's style and the dark, moody, and striking visual details. As a hardcore horror film fan, I'd love to own a collection of these. If you like what you see, you can purchase some of his art here, but it's not cheap. His cheapest prints for sale are $105.

Check out some of the prints below and tell us what your favorites are!

Would You Want to See John Carpenter Direct a New Horror Movie? He Says He Might!

John Carpenter, the director of movie classics such as Halloween, The Fog, The Thing, Christine, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, Escape From New York, and more, hasn't made a film since The Ward back in 2010. Fans like myself have been wondering if he would return to helm another film again. As it turns out, he might! It all just depends on if it's the right project.

During a recent appearance on the Post Mortem podcast, host Mick Garris asked Carpenter if he was interested in directing again and this was the filmmaker's reply:

“Sure, if it’s right. Maybe. [I’m] working on a couple ideas.”

These days Carpenter has mostly been focused on his music. He has gone on tour and has released two albums of original music and another album that includes revamped versions of his classic movie themes. The most recent thing he directed was a music video for his Christine score,

Rotten Tomatoes Mistakes John Carpenter for Dead on 70th Birthday

Rotten Tomatoes Mistakes John Carpenter for Dead on 70th Birthday
Happy Birthday, John Carpenter! It's still so good to have you here. Yes, today is John Carpenter's 70th birthday. He is the horror master and one of the true living legends of the genre. And that's an important point here. Carpenter is very much alive and, as far as we know, doing well. Unfortunately, in celebration of his 70th birthday, Rotten Tomatoes took to Twitter in order to give fans a scare, but not the kind that they're used to when discussing John Carpenter. Rotten Tomatoes mistakenly said the legendary director is dead.

While they corrected the mistake rather quickly, the Rotten Tomatoes Twitter account sent out a tweet that talked about John Carpenter in the past tense, saying he "would have been" 70 today. In fact, he is 70 today and he's likely celebrating in his own way. Carpenter has yet to respond, as of this writing, to the mistake. Here's

The Best of the 8’s – From 1968 to 2008

As 2018 begins and we enter year 8 of this decade, Tom Jolliffe takes a look back at his favourite films from the previous five year 8’s…

Beginning with…

2008 – Let The Right One In

In a strong year, which included The Dark Knight and Slumdog Millionaire, I’ve opted for a genre redefining vampire film from Sweden. Not only is this my favourite of that particular year, but it’s one of the best of this century.

Anchored by two exceptional performances by the young leads, Kare Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson, this beautifully shot, haunting, thoughtful and poignant look at troubled youth (under the guise of a vampire cover which never dives carelessly into the recognisable tropes, but respects them) was one of the most surprising films of recent times. Every nuance of character from its considered human story is matched by the powerful impact of the ‘horror’ elements. From combusting vampires,

Wonder Wheel – Review

Woody Allen’s latest is a disappointment, but even a lower-drawer Woody like Wonder Wheel, which is anchored by a quartet of outstanding lead performances, is worth a look. Set around 1950, Wonder Wheel tells the story of 26-year old Carolina (Juno Temple), on the run from her mobster husband and his crew after ratting them out. She takes refuge at the home of her estranged father Humpty (Jim Belushi) and his second wife Genny (Kate Winslet). They live with Genny’s young son Richie (Jack Gore), a budding arsonist, in a cramped apartment on the grounds of the Coney Island Amusement Park that quakes beneath the titular Ferris Wheel (shades of Alvy’s childhood in Annie Hall). Carolina’s unexpected appearance could not have come at a worse time. Genny and Humpty were at one time a pair of alcoholics that found each other when they were at a low point,

Who Is Annette Roque? 5 Things to Know About Matt Lauer's Wife, a Model and Mom of 3
In the aftermath of Matt Lauer‘s termination from NBC after accusations of “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” it remains unclear where things stand with his wife of 19 years, Annette Roque.

Although neither have commented on the status of their relationship amid the scandal, a source told People on Wednesday that the 59-year-old TV personality’s “family is his focus at the moment.”

And in Lauer’s statement about the accusations on Thursday, he said, “The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It’s been humbling. I am

We Found Out Exactly Where Randall and Beth Pearson Live on This Is Us

  • BuzzSugar
If you're anything like us, the commercial breaks during Fall's most emotional show, This Is Us, are spent equal parts bawling your eyes out and furiously googling answers to the questions you have. As a tried-and-true New Jersey resident (yep, I'm a lifer!), I found myself constantly wondering where exactly Randall Pearson and his family reside. There are plenty of hints that he's a fellow Garden State resident sprinkled throughout both seasons - they fostered Deja from Newark, for instance - but I needed something tangible and set my heart on finding it. Let's start with the basics: the Pearson family lives in an enormous house with a sizable yard that's pretty far away from their surrounding neighbors. That alone screams Jersey suburbs. But when you factor in Randall's commute to New York City for work for the entire first season and how he still has time to squeeze in

We Already Know Where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Will Live After the Wedding
People were swooning worldwide on Nov. 27 when the British royal family announced the engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. The two have been dating for almost two years, though they did not appear publicly until Summer 2016. The wedding is slated for Spring 2018! After they are wed (and presumably go jetting off for their honeymoon), where will they live when they return to England? Well, it sounds like Prince Harry is going to be taking a page from his big brother's book. Harry and Meghan, whose official title will be Duchess of Sussex when she marries into the royal family, are going to set up shop in Nottingham Cottage, a small house on the grounds of the royal estate, Kensington Palace. According to The Sun, it is where Harry has already been living and where Meghan has been staying during the couple's courtship. RelatedBarack Obama's Reaction to Pal Prince Harry

Watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Crystal Fox aka the Vulptex Come to Life

The Porgs have had the spotlight for long enough, now it's the time for the Vulptex. When the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Bts reel debuted we got our first look at some of the amazing new creatures that will be in the movie, including the Porgs and the amazing-looking crystal foxes. Well thanks to EW, we now know this blinged out creature is known as a vulptex. (A pack of them would be vulptices.)

The lifeforms live on the mineral-rich world of Crait and run across the salt flats and burrow deep within the tunnels of an old Rebel Alliance hideout, which dates back to the events of the original trilogy.

EW spoke with the head of the Star Wars creature shop, Neal Scanlan, about the creation of these sparkly survivors.

“The idea is that these wonderful sort of feral creatures had lived on this planet and had consumed the planet’s surface,

The Real Story Behind Those Crystal Foxes in Star Wars 8

The Real Story Behind Those Crystal Foxes in Star Wars 8
The mysterious crystal foxes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been given a name. Much ink has been spilled about the Porgs in the latest Star Wars movie, but fans have been very curious about these mysterious fox creatures ever since they debuted in the full-length trailer. Now, we know that their proper name is a Vulptex, or Vulptices, for plural. In addition to their name, some new information on the Vulptex has been revealed.

The new Star Wars creatures inhabit the planet Crait, which is set to make its debut in The Last Jedi. The creatures are said to "run across the salt flats and burrow deep within the crevasses of this former hideout for the Rebel Alliance." The planet dates back to the events of the original trilogy, in terms of Star Wars lore, but it's new to fans and these creatures are going to be part

As a producer, Aaron B. Koontz has helped bring some of the most thought-provoking horror films to life in recent years.

Lady Bird movie review: flights of adolescent angsty (#LFF2017)

MaryAnn’s quick take… An emotional feast full of humor and pathos about the audacity, the wonder, the horror that is female adolescence. Beautiful, bittersweet, and very generous. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for movies about girls and women; love Ronan and Gerwig

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Herewith the single authentic movie about being a teenaged girl that our male-dominated entertainment sphere has begun to begrudgingly allow us annually. Last year’s was The Edge of Seventeen; 2015’s was The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird is like those films, in that it is an emotional feast about the audacity and the wonder and the horror that is female adolescence the likes of which we oh-so rarely get to see onscreen. It is a nightmare and an adventure that will resonant with

Cinepocalypse 2017 Review: The Lodgers is a Gorgeous Gothic Ghost Story

  • DailyDead
I liked enough of 2014’s Let Us Prey, the debut feature from Irish filmmaker Bryan O’Malley, to want to see whatever he would do next. In addition to conjuring up some truly nightmarish imagery, O’Malley displayed an incredible talent for stylized visuals and slow-burn pacing. His follow-up film, this year’s The Lodgers, is a totally different kind of horror movie, but one which again showcases many of O’Malley’s same gifts as a visual storyteller.

This gothic ghost story, set in early 20th century Ireland, follows a pair of orphaned twin siblings, Rachel and Edward (Charlotte Vega and Bill Milner), who are more or less prisoners of the mansion they inherited and now inhabit alone. They live by a strict set of rules that keep them confined indoors, lest invoking the anger of the Lodgers, the ghosts who share their cursed home. As their eighteenth birthday

‘It Comes At Night’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Griffin Robert Faulkner, Riley Keogh | Written and Directed by Trey Edward Shults

Ah, the thrill of plunging into a good movie with no prior knowledge. It’s rare, not simply because of the ubiquity of marketing material in the connected world, but also because said films don’t usually live up to the version imagined in one’s own mind… It Comes At Night is a dark, small-scale apocalyptic thriller that works best if all you know is that it’s a dark, small-scale apocalyptic thriller. It is taut, tense, brutal, scary, and filled with perfectly calibrated performances. Now, go see it.

Okay, if you must know more, here we go. The setting is sometime after some kind of apocalypse. An old man is dying. Paul (Joel Edgerton) takes him to the woods, shoots him, and then incinerates his body.

Sliff 2017 Review – Coyotes Kill For Fun

Blake Eckard’s Coyotes Kill For Fun screens Saturday, November 4th at 7:00pm at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis) as part of this year’s St. Louis International Film Festival. Ticket information can be found Here.

In “Coyotes Kill for Fun,” the latest from Northwest Missouri indie filmmaker and Sliff favorite Blake Eckard, a backwoods babysitter agrees to help an abused mother of two escape her lunatic boyfriend, but his psychotic brother is headed back to the area, and he has a fraught history with everyone involved. Filmed over three years in Missouri, Montana, and La, “Coyotes” had a long gestation: Two-thirds was first shot back in March 2014, and a trio of cinematographers — Eckard, St. Louisan Cody Stokes, and American-indie legend Jon Jost — passed the baton behind the camera. Despite the prolonged production, “Coyotes” maintains a totally consistent — and utterly original — vision. The film features such Eckard regulars as Tyler Messner,

October Horrors 2017 Day 31 – They Live (1988)

They Live, 1988.

Directed by John Carpenter.

Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David, Meg Foster, and George “Buck” Flower.

Synopsis:

An unemployed drifter arriving in Los Angeles looking for work who, thanks to a pair of special sunglasses, uncovers a mysterious conspiracy in which humanity has been enslaved by greed, consumerism, and ignorance by a sinister alien presence hiding in plain sight.

Well, we did it.

For the second year in a row, we’ve survived another 31 days of October Horrors.

This year we’ve looked at the wide variety of the kinds of horror the big screen can offer. We’ve had sci-fi horror, body horror, satirical horror, psychological horror, horror that arguably isn’t horror but this is my list so I’m talking about it anyway, and so on.

We looked at films with all manner of monsters from serial killers, aliens, space vampires, psychic teens, murderous hitch-hikers, Satan

John Carpenter Confirms New ‘Halloween’ Movie Will Ignore the Sequels

There may be no more storied and distinguished American horror director than John Carpenter. His closest competition would be George Romero and Tobe Hooper but Carpenter's is easily the most visually accomplished of the three. Carpenter is responsible for at least six classics that transcend the horror and science-fiction genres' supposed low-brow pleasures, including The Thing, Escape from New York, They Live, Starman, Christine, and most notably, Halloween. [caption id="attachment_662723" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Universal/caption] Over the last decade, Rob Zombie has made one admirable remake and a frankly visionary sequel to that …
