See Your Favorite Haunted Houses in Horrorgami FormNever mind paper folding a tiny boat or a Pterodactyl – that’s just child’s play (although we do admit that anything featuring a Pterodactyl is pretty damned cool). Now this? This is what we’re talking about! Your favorite haunted houses in paper form!

Below you’ll find some amazing works of Kirigami from artist Marc Hagan-Guirey, whose lifelong obsession with horror movies has been put to good use!

According to Paper Dandy, Horrorgami was Marc’s first venture into the world of kirigami. Opening at Gallery One-And-A-Half on the 31st of October, 2012, for an initial two weeks, it ran until January 2013 due to popular demand. The exhibition attracted attention from respected news, arts and cultural magazines, and websites such as the BBC, Wired, and Creative Review. It aptly peaked at No. 13 on Reddit. By the time the show was open to the public, Time Out magazine placed Horrorgami at the top of the ‘Hot List’, naming it the ‘best event to visit in London’ that week.

“Presented within light boxes, by night the silhouetted paper sculptures appear as spectral and ethereal as the buildings on screen,” says Catherine Collins, owner of Gallery One-And-A-Half. “By day, the works exist in their pure white and tangible form – displaying an innocent and simple beauty and showing their physical construction. Through this duplicitous presentation, Hagan-Guirey juxtaposes the experience of viewing the work with the experience of watching the horror films he loves. Under the cloak of darkness, a horror film is at its most effective and potent, but this power dissipates when viewed in the safety and familiarity of daylight.”

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
