The House

This was a house houseu0063as a kid I wondered what it was about.  It interested me to say the least.  It was close to my grandparents house and i never had the nerve to go inside… till I was 21 and I came back with a buddy and a camera.  After I took the picture, I altered it in Photoshop.


Oh the Horror

1891043353_86c18d6ed1 This year we had to cut back and we got rid of Cable TV.  I don’t miss it as much as I thought I would.  I do miss AMC and Sifi channel during Halloween.  We still have some channels though and one of them is TCM and it has old horror at times and it is nice to catch up on the roots of old horror.  We also have the Roku box so there are some free horror channels and Netflix so we get a good fill of stuff.  I still like the older ones that were original.  Some of this new horror is half baked or take ideas that others have done and it get old fast.

I see them remaking movies like Carrie and I think, “man, Stephen King has other books that haven’t been made into movies, why not make movies of them?” Oh well.  Hope you are having a great October!


…ZOMBIES!!!

558880_3447080153266_624746601_n I made this for fun a few weeks ago and I was kind of shocked as to how it turned out.  My friend Ken took a pic of himself in the rain as he was working and I made him into a great zombie.  Thought it turned out very well.


Eye of the Beholder

seeing-eye I’m not sure where you are at, but this week it has started to cool off and feel like fall here in Indiana.  It’s time to get creepy and settle down to a good horror flic.  My favorite time of year!


Haunted Apartment Movies:

[SinglePic not found]I find horror movies today some times funny when they are not meant to be.  I have noticed a lot of haunted apartment movies.  Um… do people think that others can’t relate to a haunted house idea.  There is something very not scary about a haunted apartment.  That’s my thoughts though, what do you think?


Marston House:

[SinglePic not found]This is a house that was down the road from where I live.  We had a tornado and it hit it hard.  A few weeks ago they took the rest down, but before that I got some pictures and added my special touch to it.  I hope you enjoy!


The Doctor:

doctor-is-in00 This is a picture I took when I was cleaning.  I took it into photoshop and creeped myself out with how it turned out! =)


Empty:

[SinglePic not found]I created this picture in a series of incarceration images.  I wanted to show madness, sadness, and fear.  This one was focused on sadness.


Movie Remakes:

[SinglePic not found]For a number of years now, we have seen an influx of movie remakes.  No matter if it is horror, action, comedy, or what ever it might be, we are being bombarded with them every year.  Is it a good thing or a bad thing?  In my opinion it is not a good thing at all.  Most of the movies that are being remade are classics already.  The outcome tends to be a half-baked yawn fest in comparison.  To me it also shows a lack of vision or originality.  For some reason people think they are paying homage by trying to recreate something that was great already.  In fact, it only highlights how awesome the original is by how trite the new one is.  I guess the good thing that comes out of it is that it reminds us to go back and enjoy something that may have been forgotten.  Don’t get me wrong, not all remakes are terrible.  Some are pretty good in fact.  In my humble opinion, the money used to create a remake could be used to make something new and unseen because if not, it just ends up in the “Under $5” DVD rack at the store.


The Body:

the-body-small This was a wallpaper design that I created for myself.  I used Photoshop to create this.  I was after a dark warn look that I wanted to add anatomy poster images to.


Script:

script I love this picture.  It came out pretty cool.  I try to stretch myself to do things I normally wouldn’t do to see if I can do it.  This is something I put together not too long ago.


Remakes of Old Films”

For a number of years now, we have seen an influx of movie remakes.  No matter if it is horror, action, comedy, or what ever it might be, we are being bombarded with them every year.  Is it a good thing or a bad thing?  In my opinion it is not a good thing at all.  Most of the movies that are being remade are classics already.  The outcome tends to be a half-baked yawn fest in comparison.  To me it also shows a lack of vision or originality.  For some reason people think they are paying homage by trying to recreate something that was great already.  In fact, it only highlights how awesome the original is by how trite the new one is.  I guess the good thing that comes out of it is that it reminds us to go back and enjoy something that may have been forgotten.  Don’t get me wrong, not all remakes are terrible.  Some are pretty good in fact.  In my humble opinion, the money used to create a remake could be used to make something new and unseen because if not, it just ends up in the “Under $5” DVD rack at the store.


Gore vs. Suspense:

seeing-eye

Over the years I have noticed in horror or even action films, gore has gone from somewhat realistic to realistic, to over the top and not realistic.  I’m personally a fan of older films that has some gore or next to none at all.  In my opinion they did very well because they used suspense, good story telling, and creative camera shots.  I watch some of the films that come out today and it almost seems like they replace the lack of story telling/creative film shooting with lots of gore and violence.  This is why a lot of new films are left by the way side in a short amount of time and more or less forgotten about.  I can honestly say that we can learn a thing or two from Asian horror films.  Yes there is still gore and violence (but not all the time), but their story telling and camera shots are amazing.  I can count on one hand how many recent horror films that I want to add to my library.  At the same time, I have tons of older films that I have backlogged that I want to add to my horror film library.  Hopefully we will get back to making great horror films here in American on an ongoing basis once again.


Zombies in the Mist:

[SinglePic not found]I wanted to do a “Dawn of the Dead” type of design.  I took a foggy sunset and twisted it from there to make what you see before you.


Zomboy Comic13:

zomboy-comic-13 This one of the Zomboy comics I did awhile back.  The idea is that instead of shooting zombies, they medicate them to be civilized people in society.  Well… they don’t always take their meds or sometimes they don’t take enough.  Zomboy is what happens in a world like that.
