Artist Creates Horror Versions of Harry Potter Book Covers

Published

on

Concept artist and illustrator Dylan Pierpont who is, to paraphrase Clive Barker’s Lord of Illusions, clearly drawn to the dark side. His illustrations and concept art are dark and fantastical, fascinatingly blending macabre with beauty, grotesque with precision.

Recently, Pierpont aimed his talents at one of the most beloved literary series of all time: Harry Potter. Pierpont created a horror-themed cover for each of the seven books in the series, taking some element from each story and using it as the foundation of the presentation. What comes from this is a 7-piece series that takes the stories that many of us grew up with and gives them a sinister, demented edge.

You can see the full series below and I strongly suggest looking through Pierpont’s official website to see what other kinds of art he’s created.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.

It’s about time.

It has been a whopping four months since we shared with you guys the red band trailer for the upcoming English language remake of Inside starring Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring.

Today we have an all-new poster for the film (via our buddies at Arrow in the Head), and the one-sheet also boasts the remake’s U.S. release date. Yes, Inside will be hitting Stateside on January 12, 2018.

You can click on the poster to the right to check it out in higher-res. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know if you’re planning to check out this remake in the comments below!

Miguel Ángel Vivas directed the Inside remake.

Produced by Adrian Guerra and Nuria Valls at Spain’s Nostromo Pictures, the remake was written by Manu Diez and [REC] creator/co-director Jaume Balaguero. “We took the original idea and made it an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more Hitchcock-ian than a splatter-fest,” said Guerra.

Again, Inside hits U.S. theaters and VOD January 12, 2018.

Synopsis:
Pregnant and depressed, a young widow tries to rebuild her life following the fateful car accident where she lost her husband and partially lost her hearing. Now, about to go into labor, she’s living in a remote house in the suburbs when, one Christmas night, she receives an unexpected visit from another woman with a devastating objective: to rip the child she’s carrying from inside her. But a mother’s fury when it comes to protecting her child should never be underestimated.
