Heroes Don't Fear the Dark

What lurks in the dark? JESUS CHRIST IT'S LITERALLY NIGHTMARES AND THEY HAVE SPEAR HANDS! Dead Space is one of my favourite games, a masterclass on horror video game design. The structure, the setting, the sound design, the level design, everything is built in such a perfectly balanced way to guide you through a nightmare.

And then Dead Space 2 and 3 happened and eeeeh they're still pretty solid games, but nowhere near the highs of Dead Space.

And so, here's a poster. Enjoy!

A Halloween Chain Saw Massacre

It's Halloween! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH Christmas for freaks! And nothing says "Happy Halloween" like a dude that cuts you up with a chain saw and wears your face as his face while he cuts up other people with chain saws. It's a vicious cycle.

Happy Halloween everyone!

I'm gonna go eat candy until I puke rainbows.

A Number of Leagues Under the Sea

Here it is, the grand finale of my "Round the World in 80 (But Actually Just 3) Posters!" In retrospect I probably should have made one for Around the World in 80 days, but these'll do for now. I probably will revisit it at some point and complete the set. In the mean time, enjoy the leagues!

Bark At the Moon

Second in the series of 6 (or 8 depending on how you classify the Universal Monsters, or, like, twenty depending on if there is one mummy or two, and if the assorted Brides Of... count). Working backwards, inadvertently. First was Gill Man, now Wolf Man. What will be next? Maybe Invisible? Who knows! Stay tuned to find out!

Welcome To the Jungle

Predator 2 gets a lot of flack for not being as good as the first one (which is to say, when people actually remember it exists) but you know what? It's still a badass action flick. And it's from 1990. You know what that means? It's a badass 90s action flicks. Even better. Sure, it doesn't hold up as well as the first. But it still oozes a grittiness that is practically a defining feature of 90s action cinema.

Also, Bill Paxton gets his skull ripped out and Gary Busey gets blown up.
