San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Detecting Deviants in the Dark Night: Profiling Gotham City’s Serial Killers



Post Thumb:


San Diego Comic-Con 2011There’s a rather interesting panel happening at San Diego Comic-Con that bears note. For the FIRST TIME at SDCC, forensic psychiatrists and an FBI profiler will analyze the behavior of some of the most prolific murderers among Batman’s rogues’ gallery.

Panelists for “Detecting Deviants in the Dark Night: Profiling Gotham City’s Serial Killers” are forensic scientists H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen R. Kambam, M.D., and Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D. who will be joined this year by Mark E. Safarik (M.S., V.S.M, FBI Ret., Supervisory Special Agent, Behavioral Analysis Unit) as they and Broadcast Thought examine the effects of psychological trauma on the development of the hero and villain.

Utilizing their combined knowledge of both forensic psychiatric knowledge and law enforcement perspectives, they’ll analyze and expose the personality constructs, motivations and criminal styles of such villains as Joker, Mr. Zsasz, Alberto “Holiday” Falcone, Onomatopoeia, Abbatoir, and James Gordon, Jr.

Broadcast Thought and Mark Safarik will explore how violent criminals who plague Gotham would be examined and profiled in real life. Could Batman, the Dark Night Detective himself, apply these same principles to solve Gotham’s most gruesome murders? The audience will enter into the minds of murderers as they explore the concept of psychopathy, apply techniques of behavioral analysis (“profiling”) to characters and their crimes, and learn whether these villains are actually serial murderers.

Detecting Deviants in the Dark Night: Profiling Gotham City’s Serial Killers takes place at Comic-Con 2011 on Thursday, July 21st, 2011, from 7:30-9:00 p.m. in Room 8 of the San Diego Convention Center.

I’ll sure as shit be there!

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
