Leatherface UK PR box - Chocolate face

Sadly, no, we aren’t starting a new column featuring the thrilling bedroom antics of the Dread Central crew. Rather, we’re taking a look at yet another promotional oddity that happened to land on the desk this week.

Beneath the plain brown wrapping lay a classy, yet unassuming box. What wonders could possibly be held within? Well, in truth, nothing could have prepared for the reality of the contents…

Opening it up, we see that — aha! — it’s a promotional drop for the UK home video release of Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s Leatherface!

But what’s that hiding under the black wrapping? Hmm… it’s a rather large tupperware box. Guess the only thing to do is see what’s inside…

Bubble wrap, eh? Looks like the contents are delicate.

Okay, this is getting weird.

Holy. Shit.

Yes, folks — that’s an almost-life-size chocolate representation of ol’ Leatherface himself.

Spin this chunky work of art around, though, and you can see that the “blood” splattering the wrapping isn’t just an added visual touch. It’s leaking from a crack — meaning this chocolate face is actually filled with sweet, sweet liquid gore.

There are few words to describe how awesome (and, frankly, disturbing) this creation is — so here are some closer photos so you can check out all the gut-churning detail. That dead flesh color shade is something else!

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

Published

on

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.

Synopsis:
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

Published

on

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.
