This Halloween Give the Gift that Slithers – The Snake Cake!



Post Thumb:


Even though she is not a fan of snakes, Francesca Pitcher, from UK-based North Star Cakes, created an amazingly realistic Amelanistic Burmese Python snake cake for her six-year-old daughter’s birthday. Check out some eye-popping and tongue-lashing imagery right here.

According to The Mirror, the cake-maker made the cake from six sponge cakes and then spent 12 hours decorating it. Now, she’s taking quotes for other snake cakes.

Here are some FAQs she posted on her North Star Cakes Facebook fanpage to help with the enquiries.

1) I am based in the UK, I will ship the snake cake within the UK but carriage will be at your cost and your risk. I cannot ship internationally.
2) I will happily cater for food intollerances, so if you need dairy-free etc that’s not a problem.
3) Yes, I can make any species of snake its just the patination and head shape that would need to be looked at as I’m not a reptile expert – if you want a quote for a different type of snake, please PM with details and an image and include the details as per point 5).
4) Sorry to all my baker friends, but I am not going to share how he’s made just yet.
5) If you require a quote for the snake cake or any other cake, please PM directly with cake details, collection date, number of required portions and flavour and I will reply with a quote.

Too bad she doesn’t ship to the US (yet). This cake would make a perfect centerpiece to a Halloween party. Are there any US-based bakers reading Dread who can replicate this monsterpiece? Come on, cats! Let’s see your made in the U.S.A. pride!

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.
