Artist Rob Sacchetto has Zombified Thousands … You Could be Next

In 2006 Rob Sacchetto started an online service called Zombie Portraits in which he hand-painted people as the living dead. Now, five years later, Sacchetto has laid the undead look on over 2,000 people and counting. And that’s just the beginning of this zombie artist’s resume.

Sacchetto has individuals send him a photo of themselves or a loved one, and he lays the zombie on them by hand illustrating. No computers or Photoshopping involved here, folks. Just old school paint, pen and ink. To check out the service, head over to Sacchetto’s website ZombiePortraits.com.

But wait; there’s more! For some unexplainable reason, Sacchetto felt he wasn’t drawing enough zombies. To remedy this situation he started Zombie Daily, a blog where he posts a new, original zombie drawing or painting every day. Zombie Daily was launched in 2008 and now has over 1,100 posts. Do the math, people; that’s over 3,000 zombies Sacchetto has now drawn over the past five years. And I did the research. These aren’t just stick figure drawings; Sacchetto is giving you everything he’s got every day with his artwork. For an example, check out the fine shirtless woman in the photo below.

Sacchetto has a book in print, The Zombie Handbook: How to Identify the Living Dead and Survive the Coming Zombie Apocalypse, and will be following it up with Zombiewood: The Celebrity Dead Exposed. So far Sacchetto’s zombie artwork has been featured on everything from puzzles to skateboard decks to t-shirts and comic books. He just loves the dead. Give The Official Rob Sacchetto Facebook Fan Page a like while you’re thinking of it.

Right now, if you mention Dread Central when ordering custom work, Sacchetto is offering $10 off a single portrait and $20 off a couples portrait. And you said we never gave you anything! There’s a brief trailer below to give you an idea of what Zombie Portraits is all about. Give it a look and visit Sacchetto’s websites. This guy is a true horror freak who does some incredible artwork. Check him out.

Published

While horror as a genre may not get the love and respect it deserves at the Academy Awards, other award ceremonies are proving that they are ahead of the curve and are giving the genre the appreciation it so rightfully deserves. A perfect example came about to day when the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards released their list of nominees and its packed to the brim with horror titles.

Jordan Peele’s Get Out netted five nominations, include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Male Lead, and Best Editing.

Super Dark Times‘ director Kevin Phillips was nominated for the Kiehl’s Someone to Watch award. Lastly, The Killing of a Sacred Deer got two nominations, one for Best Supporting Male and one for Best Cinematography.

We offer our congratulations to the nominees and wish them all the best of luck! Keep making amazing horror and keep pushing boundaries to show the rest of the world just how powerful, important, and necessary horror is to our society!

Inoperable starring Danielle Harris Gets New Poster and Limited December Release Date

Published

on

Last year we here at Dread Central premiered the trailer for the upcoming Danielle Harris hospital horror flick Inoperable from director Christopher Lawrence Chapman.

Today we have the film’s all-new poster and news that the film will finally be hitting select theaters on December 1st.

I just watched the trailer again myself and I have to say I am really looking forward to the film. I dig the location, the hurricane aspect, the psychological horror of the situation and the whole she-bang.

Count me to check out the film as soon as it hits Blu-ray and/or VOD (hopefully) within the new year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

What do you think of the trailer and new poster for Inoperable? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps handled the film’s makeup effects, with David Henson Greathouse (Syfy’s “FaceOff”) supervising, and he, Barry Aslinger, and Beki Ingram handling the bulk of the effects. Philip Jessen is unit production manager, Ashley Eberbach is first assistant director, and Bobby Marinelli is production designer.

Inoperable hits select theaters December 1st.

Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching. She realizes the storm has awakened malevolent forces, trapping her in a time loop. She must escape the hospital before the storm passes or she will be trapped in its halls forever.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.
