Garbage Pail Kids

As a child of the 70s and 80s, it warms my heart to see Garbage Pail Kids, the bastard children of the cabbage patch, still getting the kind of attention that they deserve. In fact, a new documentary is in the works celebrating these scary and gross little scamps.

Are you a fan? You should be! If so, head on over to IndieGoGo to learn all about the upcoming flick 30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story. While you’re there don’t be a Cheapo Creepo! Sure, the filmmakers have met their goal already (with 9 days left!), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t throw in some cash to make the project even better!

The goal of the film is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids Cards with an awesome documentary that is jam-packed with interviews and stories from the original creators of the controversial and explosively popular 80’s card series. Grown-up kids will share nostalgic memories of what it was like to be a part of an international phenomenon. Superfans will offer a peek at what a 30-year amassment of Garbage Pail Kids memorabilia looks like. The flick will also explore the rich cartoon art history that bred this culture icon as well as proclaim Garbage Pail Kids as a solid mark of the 20th Century!

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

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.

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. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

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.
