Cool New Artwork for Cell Count by The Dude Designs



Post Thumb:


The Saw-esque sci-fi/horror film Cell Count from Polluted Pictures, in association with Wooden Frame Productions, has a new poster, created by Tom Hodge at The Dude Designs, one of the hottest artists in the genre today. Come take a look at the poster as well as a trailer for this interesting new film.

Written and directed by Todd Freeman, Cell Count is the story of an experimental treatment gone horribly wrong. The film stars Robert McKeehan, Haley Talbot and Christopher Toyne. Check out the official Cell Count website and like the Cell Count Facebook page.

From the Press Release
The announcement earlier this week that Cell Count was chosen as the Closing Night Film and to also have its World Premiere at this year’s Fantaspoa Film Festival in Brazil made the filmmakers think this would be a great time to show the new poster from the amazing Tom Hodge at The Dude Designs.

Cell Count is the story of Russell Carpenter, who reluctantly admits his wife, Sadie, into an experimental treatment facility for her life threatening disease. While locked in this prison like surrounding they, along with six others, are unknowingly subjected to a cure that might just be worse than the disease itself. The film stars Robert McKeehen (“Leverage”), Haley Talbot (“Grimm”), Ted Rooney (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Daniel Baldwin.

“We are so excited to have our World Premiere at this year’s Fantaspoa Film Festival,” writer/director Freeman said. “We’ll be among some of the very best Fantastic Cinema has to offer from around the world. Our intent from day one was always to make a film for enthusiasts of the sci-fi and horror genres. It’s going to be a blast to see it in a theater full of genre fans for the first time.”

Tom Hodge, The Dude Designs said, “For Cell Count I wanted to create a modern illustrated montage poster. A lot of times this type of work can get labeled as ‘retro’ but I really wanted to show that this type of art is still as fresh, fun and relevant for today’s movie market in 2012 as it was back in 1972.”

“Cell Count is the type of movie that can benefit from this school of poster art as there is so much going on, so while you could just depict one isolated character or image to promote the film, it wouldn’t really tell you the whole story and my main aim for the design was to capture all the rich nuances, characters, plot twists and atmosphere of the movie to build this static trailer. I took a lot of influence from the Thai posters of the 70s, as they always had such a great flair for balancing out a broad spectrum of elements but still tying them together in a composition that looks unified as a whole.”

Joao Fleck and Nicolas Tonsho, Directors of the Fantaspoa Film Festival, said, “Cell Count is a film that has a strong potential to please a large audience. Those seeking pure entertainment will get their fix and those looking for a film to reflect upon will be satisfied watching it as well. All in all, the suspense, the twists, its powerful visuals along with its simple universal story make it unique and effecting. We look forward to seeing Cell Count be appreciated by a large, and well deserved, audience.”

Cell Count’s production company, Wooden Frame Productions, is currently in talks with sales agents as well as distributors from all over the world.

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.
