News Update!

Hello all my ghoulie fiends!!..I just thought today I would take some time out to give everyone a little update on how things are going. Seeing I haven't been able to post to much new stuff lately...sorry for that folks.

So for starts I am working on a short story for issue#2 of McHozer Comics Deadmen & Poodleskirts! My short in this issue is called Die Baby! for those who may not know I worked on issue #1, The story I did for that one was called Dead Menace which can be bought on Indyplanet.com, now back to the Die Baby! short...it's coming close to and end,I only have a few more pages to ink and one page left to draw been a hell of a fun project and i'm very happy with how the pages look! I will let you all know when it's done and printed!

Midnight Spookshow!,MS is going to be a horror anthology series but in a more magazine size format packed with extras which I can't talk to much about right now. It once was under the name Tales Of Dusk, but I have gone back to the drawing more so to speak and revamping it all up and it will be a mature rated series without a doubt. What I can tell you is that it will be sort of like the old Tales From The Crypt and Creepy comics both of which I am a huge fan of. The first tale in Issue#1 is called "Trespassers Will Be Slaughtered" I don't want to give to much detail away about the story but just think of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Wrong Turn series of horror movies..in this story a classic slasher is born! Right now for that story i'm still doing some writing and sketches and also have the first couple pages planned out for the story. I hope to have teasers up as soon as possible. Issue#1 will be a jumbo packed full of extras and will have 2-4 tales depending on the size of the stories and cost seeing i'm doing this indy style on my own with a little bit of help,unless a publisher wants to help me outAlso for tale one of MS I am also in the works on working up a short film screenplay for Trespassers Will Be Slaughtered which is alot of fun keeps me busy as hell though.

I am also going over the idea of doing a Art Of TypH sketch book with all my horror movie sketches and some other horror sketches! also thinking about doing up some horror sketch cards for commission and maybe some prints and posters if they would sell. Let me know what you think folks!

Hope you all have a great October and a great Halloween!! don't let the ghouls get to you kiddies!

For any of you who want up to date post on everything i'm doing, I now have a facebook fanpage! which you can all check out at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Art-Of-TypH/139885726039427 (just let me know if the link does not work)

Well it's another Friday night, another 5 Bloody Finger movie review time! Tonight movie is one that I came across last year on the SPACE channel. A fun new take on the zombie movies. Tonights movie is FIDO! hope you enjoy it folks!

Plot: The film takes place in a 1950s-esque alternate universe where radiation from space has turned the dead into zombies. This radiation still plagues humanity, as all those who die after the original contamination turn into the undead. In order to continue living normal lives, communities are fenced with the help of a governing corporation named Zomcon. Zomcon provides collars with accompanying remote controls to control the zombies' hunger for flesh so as to use them as slaves or servants.
In the town of Willard, whose name is a reference to the town in the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead, housewife Helen Robinson buys a zombie in spite of her husband Bill's zombie phobia. Their son, Timmy, befriends the zombie, naming him "Fido". One day Fido's collar malfunctions and he kills their next door neighbor, who turns into a zombie. Timmy "kills" the zombified neighbor.
When a pair of local bullies are blamed for the missing neighbor, they capture Fido and Timmy. Fido escapes and runs to find Helen, who comes and rescues Timmy from the bullies (who, through misadventure and Fido's hunger for human flesh, are now zombies), and they try to forget about the whole thing. Several days later, the neighbor's body is found and the murder is traced back to Fido, who is taken away to Zomcon where the public is told he will be destroyed. Timmy learns through a friend (the daughter of Zomcon's security chief) that Fido is simply working in a factory at Zomcon. Timmy sets out to rescue him with the help of another next door neighbor (a former Zomcon employee who was forced into early retirement when it was discovered he was in a romantic relationship with his female zombie). Meanwhile, Timmy locates Fido, but is captured by Zomcon's security chief, who attempts to throw Timmy into the zombie-infested "wild zone" that exists outside of the fenced communities. Bill comes to the rescue and is killed by the security chief, who is killed by Fido. Timmy is set free and the film ends with Fido, Helen and Timmy and a few neighbors happily enjoying their new domestic lives together.

My Thoughts: I didn't know a single thing about this moving going into watching it the first time, but boy am I happy I watched it. It's a very fun an new take on the zombie movie gerne. It has a nice setting time period, which I found was pulled of great. The concept behind the movie of having zombies as pets I found to be really funny to an original an fresh. It's not a serious zombie gore movie but for what it's worth an what it pulls off it's a really great movie an a must see for zombie fans. I give this one a 4 out of 5 Bloody Fingers.

It's another Friday night folks, which means a new Five Finger movie review, tonight pick is a more modern day slasher called HATCHET!

Plot: The film opens on two hunters, Sampson and his son, Ainsley, fishing in a swamp during a full moon. The two don't seem to like each other that much, and Ainsley keeps saying he has to use the restroom, making Sampson row their boat to shore. While Ainsley is urinating, Sampson falls silent so Ainsley goes to see where he is and finds Sampson's mutilated body. He grabs his harpoon and panics, only to be attacked by a strong, monstrous being who rips his arm off, pulls part of his spine out and rips his body in half. The setting switches during the credits to a Mardi Gras celebration in downtown New Orleans. In the middle of this mob is a group of friends including Ben and his best friend Marcus, who have come to have some fun, since Ben's girlfriend of eight years recently dumped him. Ben decides to go on a haunted swamp tour to escape the madness of Mardi Gras, and Marcus hesitantly agrees to go with him. The two then go to the swamp tour registry, only to find that the tour is closed because the tour guide, Rev. Zombie, was sued. Rev. Zombie then suggests that they try a place farther down the street, owned by the over-the-top, cheesy, inexperienced tour guide, Shawn. Once they arrive, Marcus decides to leave but changes his mind upon seeing two topless girls: Misty, a ditzy porn star, and Jenna, a bossy, boastful, up-and-coming actress. Their sleazy porn director, Shapiro, is also there. Ben pays for both himself and Marcus and Shawn leads all five of them to his tour bus, where the other tourists, Mr. and Mrs. Permatteo, a Minnesota couple, and the quiet, hot-tempered Marybeth, are waiting.
As the tour begins, Ben tries to make friends with Marybeth, who rudely rejects him, and Marcus takes a liking to Jenna. Shawn obviously doesn't know what he's doing, and the others start to catch on just as he arrives at the swamp. Shapiro has Misty and Jenna strip down and film a scene for Bayou Beavers as everyone gets onto the boat, while a homeless swamp-dweller tries to warn them away from the swamp. Shawn takes them anyway, touring through boring swamplands and past abandoned houses, including one where Victor Crowley, a deformed creature, lived. Shawn mentions "one night Victor's dad goes crazy and whacks him in the face with a hatchet" while looking at "ghost lights"; however, Mrs. Permatteo sees someone in the trees, and Shawn accidentally crashes into a rock, sinking the boat. To reach land, they must walk across a broken tree. While crossing, Mr. Permatteo is bitten on the leg by an alligator, making him, Misty, and Shapiro fall into the water. They all get to shore and run to safety, while Mr. Permatteo bleeds profusely. They realize that Shawn isn't an actual tour guide; he's just a college student looking for money. Marybeth takes out a gun she brought and informs them that her father and brother, Sampson and Ainsley, disappeared while fishing nearby, presumably at the hands of Victor Crowley. She then tells them the real story of Victor Crowley.
Long ago, presumably the 1940s-1960s, Crowley was a deformed boy who was kept hidden from the world by his loving father. One Halloween night, a group of kids decided to scare Victor by throwing fire works into his house, but instead the house was engulfed in flames. Victor's father returned home and tried to hack down the door with a hatchet to save him. Because he did not realize that Victor was pressed up against the other side of the door tring to get out, he hit him in the face with the hatchet, killing him. Victor's father died of a broken heart 10 years later. Marybeth tells them that Victor still roams the swamp, as a vengeful spirit, killing anyone who enters.
Victor mostly kills people near his house, which they all are standing in front of. Mrs. Permatteo becomes infuriated with how scared everyone is and decides to help her husband into the house herself. While walking up to the house, Victor emerges and hacks Mr. Permatteo in half, making everyone run away, except for a frightened Mrs. Permatteo, who then has her head ripped in half by Victor's bare hands. Marybeth shoots Victor, but only makes him fall.
The others finally meet up with each other, while Shapiro runs off farther into the swamp, where he has his head twisted off by Victor. Marcus has climbed a tree, and with some encouragement comes down from the tree, only to attack Shawn for getting them all in this mess. Ben separates them, and Marcus decides to take charge, asking if anyone else has a secret. Jenna confesses that she does not go to NYU, the college she was bragging about, instead she went to Hofstra. They then discover Shapiro's body and equipment and find out that he really wasn't a porn director, but a slimy businessman who just wanted to start a porn collection on his own. Marybeth suggests that they go back to the Crowley house to get some weapons, and all six of them head back to the house. Jenna, Shawn, Marcus, and Misty stand guard, while Marybeth and Ben go into the shed to get weapons, but find Sampson and Ainsley's bodies instead. Ben comforts Marybeth, and they grab a shovel and a pitchfork, while the others begin to get scared by noises in the bushes. All of a sudden, Jenna is grabbed from behind a tree by Victor, who uses a gas powered belt sander to sand off her lower jaw, while the others scream, and Marybeth and Ben arrive with the weapons. Marybeth hits Victor with the shovel, making him fall and get stabbed with the pitchfork by Ben. Shawn goes to grab the shovel but Victor grabs it first, chopping off his leg with it, and then decapitating him while the others run away. As Jenna, now-jawless, crawls on the ground, choking on her own blood, Victor takes the wounded girl and impales her on the shovel then chases after the remaining survivors.
The others finally slow down and decide to lure Victor back to his house and set him on fire with the gasoline tanks in the shed. They quietly head back to the house, and Ben goes into the shed to get a full gasoline tank, while Misty stands guard and Marybeth and Marcus act as bait to lure Victor to his demise. While Ben is trying to find a full tank, Marybeth and Marcus discover that Misty is missing, and her head and torso are thrown onto Ben by Victor. Ben finds a full tank and throws it on Victor, while Marybeth and Marcus set him on fire, only to have it rain and put the fire out.
The three begin to run through the cemetery they passed and find that the gate is locked, and Ben is tackled by Victor who spits up[clarification needed] in his face but is then dragged to safety. They start to run away but Marcus gets grabbed by Victor and has his arms ripped off and then his head smashed against a tombstone. Victor then grabs a gate stake/pole and chases Ben and Marybeth, throwing it into Ben's foot. Marybeth bends the pole until it's pointed right at Victor who is running towards them and is impaled on the pole. Ben and Marybeth then get onto Sampson's abandoned boat and head out into the water, where Marybeth is pulled in, getting twisted up in the seaweed. She finally sees Ben's arm sticking down in the water for her to grab, and is pulled up by Victor who is holding a dying Ben's severed forearm, and the film ends with Victor holding her screaming, until the credits roll.

My Thoughts: I thought this was a decent horror slasher, for sure not the best out there, put I thought it gave off a nice vintage feel to the 80's which I really enjoyed alot. I found the movie very entertaining from start to finish,could be a little more serious an some more gore but still a great movie all around. I can't wait for part 2 really happy there's some more modern day slasher movies being made. I give this flick a 4 out of 5 Bloody Fingers!

Horror Banner for Mike&Chuck Horror site

Then I also added in my favourite horror movie of all well next to Leatherface of course My Bloody Valentine. The last character I added was pumpkinhead it was hard picking seeing theres so many great ones out there I was gonna go The Tall Man but decided not to. I hope you all like it anyways, inks should be comming soon!

Monster Making 101 FIDO

Hello my horrific fiends! it's Monster Makin' 101 time an I'm the artist on it what no way! Dan was nice enough to offer me the chance to be one of the artist for the Monster Makin' 101 section over at Horrornewsnetwork.net an being the nice guy I am I took him up on the offer. For my Monster Makin' 101 piece I picked to do a piece based off my new Horror Movie Fan Art line. A classic new zombie movie called FIDO so sit back an enjoy the 5 easy steps that I take when making a piece like this.

Step1: I take a colored led for a mechpencil usually green or any color that I have. The reason i do this is just to get the general shape of the piece together. Also the colored led doesn't show up on grayscale scan once it's all inked an finished."the scan not the best seeing it's done in color scan but yeah ha ha"
Step2: The next step is I take my 4H lead art pencil & I will go over all the green an start mapping out the hair an nose,mouth, eyes etc. Note never press hard on the lead or put alot of time an detail into it just yet, cause if your like me you might change it about 4 times or more before your happy ha ha

Step3 & 4: This is where more of the fun stuff starts to come in, I usually do this all in one step but I thought i would break it into two, to well make it longer ha ha. This is where you start adding more facial details to the eyes an what ever other detail you might like to make your piece come to life more. Then once you get the detail done you start working on the shading for the piece. With this one I had a general idea where the shading would be so I mapped out where the blacks would be an then added the detail from there. Also in this step you can add in a background if you want to have one, I just added in a basic one to take up most of the boring white space.
Step5: The last an final step for me, seeing I don't add my own colors yet. This is where you make the piece more bold an make it "pop" more with a nice layer of Black ink, For this step I used a 0.1 Staedtler Pigment Liner for the whole piece 11x14' alot of ink ha ha. All & all I think it's a great piece an great for my Horror Movie Fan Art line of pieces. I hope you all enjoyed it folks, give it a shot if you dare!

Jeepers Creepers-2001

So it's another Friday, wow seems like the weeks going by fast ha ha. This week I picked a more modern movie which I will admit I'm a fan of ha ha gotta review some crappy movies sometimes maybe ha ha. Tonight movie is a modern day slasher in my opinion it's the Creeper...Jeeper Creepers that is!

Plot: The film chronicles a day in the life of siblings, Trish (portrayed by Gina Philips) and her brother Darry Jenner (played by Justin Long) coming home from college. As they drive through the North Florida countryside in their 1960 Chevrolet Impala, a mysterious driver in a rusty old delivery truck tries to run them off the road. After letting the vehicle pass them, they later see the same truck, in the distance off the side of the road, with a hulking man sliding what looks to be bodies covered with blood stained sheets, into a large pipe sticking out of the ground next to an old abandoned church.
The driver, taking note that they have seen him, catches up to them and tries to run them off the road a second time, Darry insists they go back and investigate. Darry orders Trish to hold his feet while he looks into the pipe. Rats appear in front of him and he jerks and screams, causing Trish to lose her grip on his legs, and he slides down the pipe cutting himself. At the bottom, he finds hundreds of bodies sewn together, covering the walls of a massive cavern beneath the church. Darry can not reach the end of the pipe which looms above his head, so he looks around and finally finds a passage up through the church. Visibly traumatized by what he has seen, he and Trish flee the scene and stop at a gas station where they contact the police. While waiting for the cops to arrive, they are phoned by a local psychic, Jezelle Gay Hartman, who warns them that they are in terrible danger. She plays the song "Jeepers Creepers" on the phone, and tells them that when they hear that song, they will be in extreme danger. Badly frightened, they ignore her warning. Word arrives that the old church had gone up in flames and all evidence of any bodies has been destroyed. Trish and Darry rush out of the gas station with the police providing a security escort.
As they travel, the police are attacked and killed by the mysterious driver of the old truck. While Trish and Darry flee the scene, the driver loads the policemen's bodies into his truck. Darry and Trish try to get help from a local eccentric, but the mysterious driver catches up to them, the woman attempts to kill him with a shotgun but he jumps out of the way and kills her. They manage to hit the mysterious driver with their car, and run him over several times. After crushing the mysterious driver's body, they realized its inhuman nature when what appears to be a giant wing begins to flap around. Leaving it on the road, they drive to the local police station to wait for their parents, but Jezelle shows up and warns them they are still in danger.
Jezelle tells them the true nature of the mysterious creature: it is an ancient demon known as "The Creeper", which rises every twenty-third spring for twenty-three days to feast on human body parts which, upon consumption, form part of its own body. She also tells them that it seeks out its victims through fear, and that by smelling the fear from Trish and Darry, it has found something it likes, but she does not know what.
The wounded Creeper attacks the police station and gains entrance to the cells. After it feasts on prisoners to heal, it is swarmed by police, but kills a number of them. Jezelle guides Trish and Darry upstairs, telling them one of them will die, screaming in the dark while the song "Jeepers Creepers" plays in the background. The Creeper heads towards Jezelle and sniffs her, but lets her go, and heads off to find Trish and Darry.
The Creeper catches up and captures Darry. Trish tries to reason with it, and attempts to give her life for her brother's. The police burst in and take aim, but the Creeper escapes out the window with Darry. The next day, Trish, contemplating Darry's fate, is picked up by her parents, and Jezelle returns home in regret.
The final scene shows the Creeper in its new hideout, an abandoned meat packing plant, where the audience finally learns what the Creeper wanted: by ripping out the back of Darry's head, it has taken his eyes, leaving Darry's body an eyeless, motionless corpse, while "Jeepers Creepers" is playing in the background.
In a brief shot after the credits, the Creeper's truck drives by the camera, with the driver side window rolled down and the Creeper smiling at the audience while blaring its ghastly horn.

My Thoughts: I personally think this movie is the base of modern day slashers, I think it's a movie & character that will stand the best of times an be around for a long time at least I hope so. We horror fans need more modern day Slashers not to say Freddy,Michael & Jason aren't great but we need a new breed of killers, back to the movie at hand, I think the story is pretty decent, could be better in parts for sure, But what I think really make this movie great is The Creeper. I think the look of him is very classic slasher looking an the character concept of how he is an he needs to take peoples parts to stay alive I thought was great. The movie does a good job of keeping you on the edge of your seat cause you never really know what he's gonna do next or how he's gonna get you. I can't wait to see more of this character. While looking it up earlier, I found a rumor that part 3 is being made an will be out in 2011 so lets hope so I know I will be waiting to see it! Now this movie isn't perfect by far but I do give it a solid 4.5 Bloody Fingers out of 5!

Here's a preview of the trailer, hope you enjoy it folks!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre-1974

So it's that time of the week again folks! It's Friday which means new movie review time! This week movie is another classic an one that I enjoy a lot ha ha, this week classic is a slasher from 1974. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I hope you enjoy it folks!

The poster for this one, isn't a over the top detailed one, but with the little detail there is,an with the general look of leatherface an the girl in the back, you pretty much get a feel of how this movie is going to turn out.

Plot:Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns) and her brother Franklin (Paul A. Partain) travel with three friends, Jerry (Allen Danziger), Kirk (William Vail), and Pam (Teri McMinn) to a cemetery containing the grave of the Hardestys' grandfather. They aim to investigate reports of vandalism and of corpse-defilement. Afterward, they decide to visit an old Hardesty family homestead, and on the way, the group picks up a hitchhiker (Edwin Neal). The man speaks and acts bizarrely, and then slashes himself and Franklin with a straight razor before the group force him out of their van. The group stop at a gas station to fuel their vehicle, but when they find out from the proprietor (Jim Siedow) that the pumps are empty, the group continues to the homestead, intending to return to the gas station later after a fuel truck makes its delivery. Franklin tells Kirk and Pam about a local swimming hole, and the couple heads off to find it. Instead, they stumble upon a nearby house. Kirk decides to ask the residents for some gas, while Pam waits on the front steps.
Receiving no answer but finding the door unlocked, Kirk enters the house; Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) suddenly appears and kills him. Pam enters soon after, to find the house filled with furniture made from human bones. She attempts to flee but Leatherface catches her and impales her on a meathook. At sunset, Sally's boyfriend Jerry heads out from the house to look for the others. Finding the couple's blanket outside the house, he investigates and finds Pam still alive inside a freezer. Before he can react, Leatherface appears and murders him, stuffing Pam back inside the freezer afterward.
With darkness falling, Sally and Franklin set out to find their friends. As they near the killer's house, calling for the others, Leatherface lunges out of the darkness and murders Franklin with a chainsaw. Sally escapes to the house only to find the desiccated remains of an elderly couple in an upstairs room. With Leatherface still pursuing her, she jumps through a second floor window and continues to flee, eventually arriving at the gas station. As she reaches it, Leatherface disappears into the night. The proprietor at first calms her with offers of help, then binds her with rope and forces her into his truck. He drives to the house, arriving at the same time as the hitchhiker, who turns out to be Leatherface's younger brother. When the pair bring Sally inside, the hitchhiker taunts her when he realizes who she is.
The men torment the bound and gagged Sally while Leatherface, now dressed as a woman, serves dinner. Leatherface and the hitchhiker bring the old man from upstairs, still alive, to the table to join the meal. During the night, they decide Sally should be killed by "Grandpa" (John Dugan), out of respect for his work at the slaughter house when he was younger. "Grandpa" is too weak to hit Sally with a hammer, repeatedly dropping it. In the confusion, Sally breaks free, leaps through a window and escapes from the house, running out onto the road. Leatherface and the hitchhiker give chase, but the hitchhiker is run down and killed by a passing semi-trailer truck. Armed with his chainsaw, Leatherface attacks the truck when the driver stops to help, and is hit in the face with a large wrench wielded by the driver. Sally escapes in the bed of a passing pickup truck as Leatherface waves the chainsaw above his head in frustration.

My Thoughts: This movie is a true classic all the way. Sure Leatherface is not as iconic as Freddy or Jason or Michael, an sure he hasn't had as many movies as they have but he still stands the test of time. This movie goes places that some others don't you actually feel for the kids in the movie an can actually feel there pain. The set up to this movie makes you believe it really is a true story. From start to finish this is a well rounded movie that you will never get bored of, it's not meant for everyone That's for sure, there are some gory parts even for back then but it still one hell of a movie. I give this a perfect 5 out of 5 bloody fingers!

Here's the trailer for anyone who would like to watch it, sorry couldn't get a full copy of the movie from youtube.

The House On Haunted Hill-1959

So it's that time of the week again folks! it's Friday an time for a new movie review. This week I picked a true classic from one of the best Vincent Price. This film is a true classic an it also has a pretty sweet looking movie poster!, I hope you all enjoy it folks!

Plot:House on Haunted Hill is the tale of five people invited to stay the night in a haunted house by an eccentric millionaire, Fredrick Loren, who is throwing the "party" for his fourth wife, Annabelle, with the stipulation that the power will be out and all doors will be locked at midnight, allowing no accessible escape. Anyone who stays in the house for the entire night, given that they are still alive, will each receive $10,000.
The five guests all arrive in separate funeral cars with a hearse leading, which he explains may be empty now, but they may be in need of it later. He explains the rules of the party and gives each of the guests a .45 calibre pistol for protection. Loren's wife tries to warn the guests that her husband is psychotic, causing them to be very suspicious of him, especially Nora Manning, who becomes convinced that he's trying to kill her when she keeps seeing mysterious ghouls, including the ghost of Annabelle, who had hanged herself after being forced to attend the party.
After being driven into a fit of hysteria by the ghosts haunting her, Nora shoots Mr. Loren, assuming he is going to kill her. Dr. Trent, another guest, tries to get rid of the body by pushing it into acid, but the lights go out, and when they come back on, both of the men are gone. Annabelle emerges, having faked her death with the help of Dr. Trent, and having apparently tricked Nora into killing Loren. Suddenly, a skeleton emerges from the acid accompanied by the voice of Loren. The spectre approaches Annabelle as she recoils in terror. In this panic, the screaming Annabelle accidentally backs into the acid herself. The real Mr. Loren walks out of the shadow, holding the contraption that he was using to control the skeleton of Dr. Trent. In his triumph, he watches Annabelle disintegrate.
Nora tells the other guests that she's shot Loren in the cellar, and they all rush down there. When they arrive, they see that he's actually alive, and he explains to them that his wife and Dr. Trent were having an affair, and that the "haunting" was just a joke planned by him with the help of the caretakers. He also tells them that they'd planned to trick Nora into murdering him so that they could get away with his money. He had not loaded Nora's guns with bullets, but blanks. Just when everyone thinks the trauma is finally over, Mr. Pritchard, the house owner, looks up, a terrified expression on his face, and announces that the ghosts are finally coming for them.

My Thoughts: This is a true classic from Vincent Price, by far the best version of this movie. It has some nice good scares an shock in it. In my opinion this is one of Price better movies, but thats just my opinion his best to me will always be The Last Man On Earth but back to the movie haha. I think if your a classic movie fan then this one for sure is a must watch. It's very well made an wrote an directed. I also found it to be pretty original for it's time to an very exciting when you first watch it cause you never really know what will happen next. A overall well put together classic. I give this movie 4.5 out of 5 Bloody Fingers!

you can watch the movie for free right now! from my site or from youtube!

Night Of the Living Dead-1968

So it's another Friday folks, means new horror movie review time! Tonight I picked a classic that's near an dear to my heart. It is actually one of my very first horror movies I ever watched when I was five years old! it's Romero's classic black & white zombie film Night Of The Living Dead

Plot:Siblings Barbra (Judith O'Dea) and Johnny (Russell Streiner) drive to a rural Pennsylvania cemetery to place a cross with flowers on their father's grave. Johnny teases his sister, afraid of cemeteries: "They're coming to get you, Barbra!" Suddenly, a pale skinned man (S. William Hinzman) grabs Barbra, and Johnny rushes to save her. A fight occurs, and Johnny is ultimately overpowered and killed when he falls and hits his head on a tombstone. Barbra flees the scene, pursued by the man. Finding refuge in an empty house, she discovers a mutilated corpse at the top of the stairs. The home's telephone is offline and of no use (because her pursuer has just destroyed the cord connecting the house to the phone box on a power pole).
While attempting to flee the house, she encounters Ben (Duane Jones), who brings her back into quarantine and later defends the house against straggling zombies. This is followed by an intense argument about Barbara's desire to search for Johnny. After a brief struggle, Barbra collapses in shock, and Ben carries her to a couch. Ben boards up the doors and windows from the inside, and takes a chair outside and scares off the attackers by setting it afire. Ben finds a rifle and a radio as Barbra lies catatonic.
The two are unaware that Harry and Helen Cooper (Karl Hardman and Marilyn Eastman), their daughter Karen (Kyra Schon), and young couple Tom (Keith Wayne) and Judy (Judith Ridley) have been hiding in the cellar until later. One of the attackers bit Karen earlier and she has fallen ill. Harry wants the group to barricade themselves in the cellar, but Ben argues that they would effectively be trapping themselves. Ben carries the argument, its opposition mounted exclusively by Harry Cooper, and the group cooperates to reinforce the main part of the house.

The ghouls swarm around the house, searching for living human flesh.
Radio reports explain that an epidemic of mass murder is sweeping across the eastern seaboard. Later, Ben discovers a television upstairs and the emergency broadcaster reveals that the creatures are consuming the flesh of their victims. A subsequent broadcast reports that the murders are being perpetrated by the recently deceased who have returned to life, dubbed 'ghouls'. Experts, scientists and military are not sure of the cause of the reanimation, but one scientist is certain that it is the result of radioactive contamination from a space probe that exploded in the Earth's atmosphere. A final report instructs that a gunshot or heavy blow to the head will stop the ghouls and that posses of armed men are patrolling the countryside to restore order.
Ben devises a plan to escape using the truck involving all of the men in the house. The truck is in need of fuel, so Ben and Tom go to an outside gas pump while Harry hurls Molotov cocktails from an upper window. On the way out the door, Judy fears for Tom's safety and chases after him. Upon arriving at the pump, Ben places a torch on the ground next to the truck. Tom loses control of the pump, splashing gasoline onto the torch, starting a fire that quickly engulfs the vehicle. Tom tries to drive the truck away from the gas pumps to avoid further damage, but when he goes to exit the truck, Judy gets stuck. Tom goes back into the truck to help her but before they can get out the truck explodes, killing them both. Ben runs back to the house to find that Harry has locked him out. He kicks the door open and, in a fury, fiercely beats Harry.

The Cooper family, above, had been hiding in the cellar of the empty house where Ben was battling a horde of zombies.
Some of the undead horde converges upon the truck and begin eating Tom and Judy's charred remains. Meanwhile, others try to break through the doors and windows of the house. Ben manages to hold them back, but drops his rifle. Harry seizes the fallen rifle and turns it on Ben, who wrestles it away from Harry and shoots him. Harry stumbles into the cellar, finds Karen dead, and dies.
Shortly after, Helen discovers that her daughter, Karen, has been transformed into one of the ghouls and is consuming her father's corpse. Karen repeatedly stabs her mother with a cement trowel, killing her, before going upstairs. Meanwhile, the undead finally break into the house and Barbra sees her brother Johnny among them. She lets her guard down and is pulled into the horde and killed. Ben retreats into the cellar, locking the door behind him, ironically taking the course of action that Harry had recommended in the first place. The zombies, including Karen, Johnny and the man who attacked Barbra and Johnny at the start of the film, try to break in. Ben shoots the reanimated Harry and Helen Cooper, and waits for the morning rays.
In the morning, a posse approaches the house, hunting the remaining ghouls. Hearing the commotion, Ben ambles up the cellar stairs into the living room. Sheriff McClelland (George Kosana) spots him through a window, and, mistaking him for a zombie, has one of the posse members shoot him in the head, killing him. Still shots are shown of the posse members dragging Ben's body from the house and placing it on a pyre, next to the zombie that had attacked Barbra at the start of the film, as the closing credits roll. The film ends with a brief clip of the pyre burning.

My Thoughts: I might be a tad bit bias on this one, but personally I think this film is the king of all zombie films in my mind. I think the story is very good an the characters all come off great. Now the zombies don't have much to them but come on from 1968 they still look cool in black an white if you ask me. There are some nice gory parts especially when the truck blows up an the zombies feed on the dead bodies. I could go on about this movie all night long if I wanted to. I think it has alot of special parts here an there, it is also a must watch for any zombie fan in my mind, I highly recommend it to any zombie fan or horror fan in general for that matter. I give this one a perfect 5 out of 5 Bloody Fingers!

You can also watch the movie for FREE! from my site or on youtube!

Tell Me No More Lies Sketch

So yesterday an this morning I started a new sketch, called "Tell Me No More Lies" The idea behind this is pretty simple guy tells non-stop lies an sooner or later the evil from hell starts to take over his body an you have a "Tell Me No More Lies" victim. It was created very very randomly over the weekend but I have to say I love it. One of the reason I did it was because i've been doing comic pages which I can't show just yet so I wanted to do some for everyone to see,seeing I haven't posted anything new since the "Nightmare On Elm Street" piece. I also plan on inking it sooner or later not sure when yet. Might be the first of a selection of Creator Owned Horror Prints too, I will keep everyone updated on that news when the time comes.Heres another sketch I did up over the weekend when I had about 30mins or so of free time. I never got around to finishing it, but it's so to be a picture of myself from the side if I was a zombie. At least what I think I would look like as an infected more of a Rage type. Of course it doesn't look 100% like me at least I don't think it does, an didn't bother adding a beard like I have cause I wanted to add more jawline detail, it's all just a practice piece for when I do more zombie art in the near future

Some Older Clive Barker Sketches!

Heres some older sketches I dug out of my picture vault. Only done about a year or so ago but still old to me haha. These are all inspired by his writing. I am a huge fan of the characters he creates he has some very awesome ones. Also a big fan of the NightBreed series have some of the comics an the movie is pretty cool too! I'll start of first by showing off some NightBreed inspired work I hope you like it folks.
Heres a piece that I did of Pinhead from the Hellraiser series, a very cool character all around. This piece was done with a more cartoony look then the others, at least to me it does with the shape of the face an stuff. This was around the time when I was deciding on doing more cartoony or real looking stuff, an well I went for more real darker stuff an I'm glad I went with it, I personally think the stuff of late hasd been the best stuff i've ever done an it just keeps getting better in my opinion. I hope you enjoy the Pinhead sketch folks. I plan on doing a Candyman piece in the future like my Fido,Nightmare On Elm Street & Addams Family pieces too. Not sure on when that will be though.
