Whether you’re a fan of adult coloring books or just GOREgeous artwork in general, you’ll want to check out the newly released trailer for Alan Robert’s The Beauty of Horror II: Ghouliana’s Creepatorium, the sequel to last year’s The Beauty of Horror. The unsettling video was filmed in Los Angeles by director Robert Hall (Laid to Rest, Chromeskull) and director of photography Brandon Trost (Halloween II, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Crank: High Voltage).
Makeup FX were designed by Hall’s Almost Human FX shop (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Teen Wolf”) based on the book’s Ghouliana character. It was written and produced by Alan Robert. Nick Principe (American Muscle, Chromeskull) also produced; narration is by Jane Dashow (“Law & Order,” “Homeland”). Ghouliana is performed by Biannca Nodle.
