Artist Gris Grimly Helps WM3 Cause



Gris Grimly's Mad Creator ProductionsThe multi-talented Gris Grimly, aka the Mad Creator, recently sent over an email with details about some of his latest projects.

The most notable is his new line of “Broken Justice” t-shirts, which Gris designed to help raise funds for the West Memphis Three (see the picture on the left below). No matter what you think of the case, you can’t deny how poignant — and timely — the image is. His inspiration for the shirt was a worn, broken down Lady Justice who symbolizes all injustice that occurs due to race, class, and sex.

In his own words, “I have only recently become active in assisting these three men. I guess you can say that something happened that struck a chord with me and helped me see things differently. The creation of the Broken Justice shirt is the first project in many to assist and support Damien, Jason and Jessie. The proceeds from the sales of these shirts will be passed along to aid in their defense.

In a different vein (pun intended), click the picture on the right to see two other new shirt designs that incorporate vampiric imagery.

But that’s just the beginning. Grimly goes on to promise, “A bunch of new merch [is coming], all of which will be announced in a Comic Con newsletter soon. Come visit us at the Mad Creator Productions booth (#509). I’ll be attending to sign Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.

In the meantime, visit the official Mad Creator Productions site to place an order and sign up for their emails so you don’t miss a single unhealthy dose of Grimly’s own special abnormality.

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.
