Cool Stuff: Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy Gets Three Comic Book Style Prints by Johnny Dombrowski

When you think of the greatest film trilogies of all time, it’s easy to remember Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. But don’t you dare leave out The Cornetto Trilogy. It might be a makeshift trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, linked only by the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in all of the films directed by Edgar Wright, but thematically, they are an incredible trio of stories that are hilarious, bloody, twisted, and ...

‘The Thing’ Comes to Life in Matthew Peak’s New Print from Bottleneck Gallery

John Carpenter may best be known for skyrocketing the slasher genre to new heights with Halloween. But let’s not forget what he also did for sci-fi horror with his 1982 remake of The Thing. And in celebration of that classic, Bottleneck Gallery is releasing their last new print of 2018 in the form of The Thing print by artist Matthew Peak. It’s a stunning work that the artist created for a recent screening of The Thing, and now you can get your hands on it. Check out the Matthew Peak The Thing ...

Cool Stuff: All Your Favorite Sci-Fi & Horror Movies and TV Shows Collide in an Epic Print

Almost two years ago to the day, artists Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley released a Where’s Waldo-esque print called “The Raid” that combined a ton of iconic sci-fi characters, monsters, robots and more into a single image. Now they’re back with a sequel called “The Raid 2: Incident on Line 13,” and not only have they brought in even more sci-fi elements, but they’ve added a slew of iconic horror slashers, creatures and characters. See how long it takes you to find Snake Plissken aiming at J...

‘A Quiet Place’ Mondo Poster Captures One of the Movie’s Best Visuals

People weren’t expecting much from A Quiet Place when it was first announced, but John Krasinski‘s high concept horror film took Hollywood by storm when it debuted earlier this year. With its great story hook, quick pacing, excellent performances, and memorable sound design, it’s still one of my favorite films of 2018 so far. It only makes sense for a film that like to get the Mondo treatment, and now artist Matt Ryan Tobin has reimagined one of the movie’s most effective visuals in the very fi...

The Power of Love Can Make a Zombie Too!

It's hard to believe it's over. It was five years ago that I set out to write The Zombies of Penzance. It seemed so perfect, so deliciously fucked up, and the process of "translating" the story , the changing of Gilbert's pirates into zombies, hardly disturbed the plot at all (though I later made some larger plot changes).I know you want to ask, so yes, I was seriously stoned when I thought of the idea.I immediately loved everything about it. I already deeply loved The Pirates of Penzance. I lo...

Cool Stuff: Hero Complex’s ‘Halloween 40’ Art Show Celebrates The Night He Came Home

This week marks the release of Halloween, the direct sequel to the original 1978 slasher of the same name that turned John Carpenter into a horror legend. Perhaps even more legendary is the killer at the center of the entire Halloween franchise, The Shape himself, Michael Myers. And a new art show from Hero Complex Gallery celebrates the 40th anniversary of the original Halloween and the pure evil killer who has struck terror into the hearts of so many. Check out some of the pieces from the the...

Hail, Zombies!

Hail, zombies, thou heav’n-made dead, Forsaken by the God we dread; Great metaphor for all we fear! All hail the end of all that we hold dear! It was back in 2013, after watching the movie Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter (coincidentally starring BBAJ's Benjamin Walker). It was just a few hours after watching the movie that I started thinking about what kind of similar mashup I might concoct in the realm of musical theatre. I've always been fascinated by the idea of art made from other art...

We'll Hunt the Dead and Mount Their Head

Now that we're running all of The Zombies of Penzance at each rehearsal, it's easier to assess my writing, and I'm pretty happy with it. The public reading we did in January was enormously helpful, and I did tons of small rewrites, and several big rewrites, after that, including 1 1/2 new songs. Watching it now, I think those changes were all good ones.It's still weird for me because Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance has been a part of me since I saw it on Broadway in 1981, and I've know...

We Triumph Now, God Only Knows How

We've blocked our zombies and zombie hunters, and we've run the two acts separately. Next week we move into the theatre, and start running the whole show. The vocal music is sounding amazing, in part because we're spending a lot more time than usual reviewing music in blocking rehearsals, which makes the actors so much more comfortable. We're now at that point now where they have to put down their scores, and that moment terrifies some of them.The score is learned, the show has been staged, and...

A Zombie Hunter's Life's a Bloody Drag

In adapting The Pirates of Penzance into The Zombies of Penzance, part of the process was reverse engineering my crazy meta origin story. Our origin story says that Gilbert & Sullivan wrote The Zombies of Penzance first, but their producer Richard D'Oyly-Carte refused to produce it, so they rewrote it as the now famous Pirates of Penzance.Just to be clear, that didn't actually happen.So as I was figuring out how to translate the original story into a zombie story, I was also imagining Glibert's...

Contest: Win a ‘Winchester’ Poster Designed by Daniel Danger

Confession time: I don’t handle ghost stories very well. I lost my damn mind during The Conjuring, and I still remember emerging into a dark and foggy street after seeing the first Paranormal Activity and being jumpy for a few hours. But I may have to psyche myself into seeing Winchester, the new horror film starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke, when it comes out on Friday.

This Kurt Russell Art Show Looks A-Number One, Is All in the Reflexes

One of the greatest pleasures of my career so far arrived last year, when I was able to interview the great Kurt Russell following the premiere of the fantastic horror western Bone Tomahawk. Russell is one of the greats, a massive screen presence who’s willing to take chances on strange movies, a “man’s man” who isn’t afraid to play weak or buffoonish, an actor who can embody cowboys and criminals and psychopaths and moody helicopter pilots stranded in the ass-end of Antarctica. There has never...
