Gris Grimly Signings and Showings

Gris Grimly's Sipping Spiders Through a StrawWe got an update today from one of our favorite “mad creators” on the horror scene: artist and budding filmmaker Gris Grimly.

First up is the availability of Sipping Spiders Through a Straw, a new collection of campfire songs “which have been altered for optimal gross-out effect by the ghoulish Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by the Master of Creep, Gris Grimly.” Kelly is a noted children’s book author whose previous works include Bed Hogs, Dinosnores, and the upcoming How to Potty Train Your Monster. With camping season just getting under way, this sounds like a must-have addition to your gear; you can order a copy directly from Gris’ online store here.

Next are a couple of signings where you can check out Sipping Spiders and meet Gris in the flesh:

May 10th — 5:00 pm: Lewis Galleries, 290 Easy Street, #5, Simi Valley, CA 93065, 805-579-9818. They will also be displaying a few pieces of Gris’ earlier pieces of work and prints at this signing.

May 17th — 1:00-6:00 pm: Animation Book Look, 13613 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91423, 818-788-2357. Gris will be joining Eric Pigors and Steve Niles (and around 60 other artists/cartoonists/illustrators) at this outdoor festival.

Gris Grimly's Cannibal Flesh Riot!With regard to Gris’ uber-stylish and fun short film “Cannibal Flesh Riot!” (review coming soon), those on the West Coast have two chances to see it over the next few weeks. The first occurs at this weekend’s ZOMPIRE: Undead Film Festival in Portland, Oregon, which we told you about here. Gris wasn’t exactly sure exactly when “Cannibal Flesh Riot!” will be screening, so if you’re in the area and would like to attend, be sure to check the official ZOMPIRE website for a schedule of showings. The second also takes place in the Pacific Northwest — Seattle to be exact. “Cannibal Flesh Riot!” will be shown on Friday, May 23rd, during a rock & roll extravaganza at Slim’s Last Chance, 5606 1st Ave S. Tickets are only $7, and the doors open at 9:00 pm. The only hitch is you must be 21 or over.

Lastly, on June 7th the limited edition hardcover of Gris’ artbook Where Madness Reigns will premiere at Halloween Town, 2921 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA. There will only be 500 signed copies of the exclusive brown clothbound edition available to the public so try not to miss this very special event. Gris will also be selling limited edition t-shirts and silkscreen posters exclusive to this show, and there will be some never-seen-before original artwork and prints exhibited as well.

Whew! That’s a lot of Grimly! To stay in the loop on all of his upcoming appearances and sign up for “The Fiend Club,” be sure to hit the official Mad Creator Productions site.

The Strangers: Prey at Night Set Visit Part 1: The Trailer Park

Published

on

Down the backroads of northern Kentucky sits 55 acres of hilly land where a neighborhood once stood. The asphalt that crisscrosses through the area is all that’s left. The streets are void of lights, and the plots where houses once stood are now visited mainly by fireflies and deer. Decades ago the homes were demolished, but something else has a home here. Something is stalking in the shadows: The Strangers.

Once someone has traveled far enough into this deserted community, a thriving production can be found. A new population has taken over, breathing life into the land. The cast and crew of The Strangers: Prey at Night have created a living, breathing residential setting for the next installment of the popular slasher flick. Since the land was devoid of everything aside from trees and paved roads, Aviron Pictures had a blank canvas in which to create the setting for the film.

The Strangers: Prey at Night takes place at an unspecified time after the original, but the new setting does share the same isolated feel. Gatlin Lake Getaway is the fictional trailer park where Baghead, Dollface, and Pinup find their new batch of victims. To create a community comprised of mobile homes from scratch, production designer Freddy Waff had to do a healthy amount of legwork. Twenty-two mobile homes were saved from being scrapped and stationed throughout the defunct neighborhood. Each home was dressed inside and out complete with gravel driveways, street lights, lawn furniture and a dose of isolation.

Imagery that comes to mind when the term ‘trailer park’ is mention usually means a number of rectangular homes packed right next to each other row after row. In Gatlin Lake, however, the homes have a good quarter-acre between each. It is entirely believable that something horrible may happen in one trailer without the closest neighbor even having the slightest inkling that something is amiss.

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..

Jamie Lee Curtis Says Blumhouse Halloween Will Make Us “Very Happy and VERY Scared”

Published

on

Bring. It. On.

It was only last week that we let you guys know that Jamie Lee Curtis had wrapped filming on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

And today we have another Instagram post from the legendary scream queen where she not only shows us a creepy-ass painting of Michael Myers, but she lets us know that Blumhouse’s Halloween is going to make us all “very happy, and VERY scared.”

Hoo-ray!

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to just go ahead and trust Jamie Lee Curtis on this one. She’s been around the Halloween block more than a few times and I trust her judgment… other than Halloween: Resurrection.

You can check out her post below and then let us know how excited you are for Laurie Strode’s return!

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer of the film as well as the composer.

The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

Synopsis:

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
