Sexy & Disturbing Dread Tease

The mysterious main character of Clive Barker’s upcoming film Dread, Quaid, sent us a sample of his twisted and sexy art today. What awaits those who are unwilling players in the artist’s mad experiments?

This is a picture I painted of a girl named Abby. She has a port-wine birthmark covering half her body: her leg, her stomach, her breast, her face… Abby’s going to participate in our fear study – going to share with us her deepest DREAD. Abby learned at a very young age that she would always be an object of scrutiny… she confided in me, and all she wants is to be normal. Would you like to be part of our fear study?

I really hope this adaptation of Barker’s work is treated better by the studios than “>Midnight Meat Train (review).

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
