Savage Sword of Conan #54 - Neal Adams art

Savage Sword of Conan v1 #54, 1980 - Neal Adams contributes to a single page in this issue, providing the inks on a Conan vs. snake demons pin-up. Carl Potts' composition is generally mediocre. The pencils do benefit from the additional fine detailing, but only marginally. Note also how Adams' division of light and dark increases both depth and perspective. Both artists' signatures appear on the [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Vamp or Not? Kuntilanak (2018)

This 2018 film, directed by Rizal Mantovani and hailing from Indonesia, suffers from not quite knowing what it wants to be. It has a horror theme but the young cast pushes it down a kid’s arena to a degree.

So we have looked at several movies with kuntilanaks as the primary monster. Sometimes the vampire correlation is obvious, at other times not so much. In this case the...
