Exclusive Reveal: Alex Pardee’s Doppelgangers Art Print Features All Your Favorite Movie Monsters



One of our favorite artists in the horror game is Alex Pardee, whose original creatures – recently seen in Adam Green’s Digging Up the Marrow – continually blow our mind. In addition to all the original stuff, Pardee also likes to paint his favorite movie monsters in his own unique style, and he lovingly refers to them as his “Doppelgangers.”

The paintings, originally available as prints on Pardee’s website, were collected together in an art book last year, and just in time for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, all 185 of the iconic monsters he has painted will join forces for one epic art print that we’re delighted to exclusively reveal here on Dread today.

Over the course of 6 years, I would occasionally paint a quick watercolor portrait of one of my favorite movie monsters as a little therapy break,” Pardee explained to us. “This side project quickly became an obsession in revisiting every movie I loved growing up and making myself smile along the way. Last year, all 185 paintings were collected individually and published in my latest book, called ‘Doppelgängers.’ However, now, they are finally hanging out at the same party. All 185 of my favorite monsters on one giant horrific print.”

Signed by Pardee, and inspired by a lifelong love affair with all things scary, the “DOPPELGÄNGERS” limited timed-release print measures 36″ x 24″ and was printed with archival inks on bright cold press cotton rag paper. Beginning on July 20 at 6am PT, the print will be available on AlexPardee.com for just 13 days, going away forever on August 1 at 11:59pm PT.

The prints will also be available at SDCC later this month, and anyone who purchases one at Pardee’s booth (#5502) will receive an exclusive pair of signed and numbered “Event Tickets” as well as a cheat-sheet/legend so that you can easily identify each monster and the film they inhabit. The SDCC price, same as the online price, is $80.

Rob Zombie Narrates Charles Manson’s Last Words to a Wider Audience



Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.

Look for more on this one soon!
