In Anthony DiBlasi’s adaptation of Clive Barker’s short story “Dread”, one of the characters is an artist, and in anticipation of Dread‘s DVD release (along with the rest of this year’s Horrorfest entries), one lucky person can have his or her portrait painted by Nicole Balzarini, the real artist behind Quaid (Shaun Evans)’s paintings in the film.
