Alan Robert is the creator of several critically-acclaimed graphic novels: Wire Hangers, Crawl to Me (in development to become a motion picture), Killogy, The Shunned One, and The Beauty of Horror, a bestselling series of horror-themed adult coloring books.
And today we’re excited to pass along the news that bestselling horror creator Alan Robert has teamed up with claymation animator Trent Shy to produce an off-the-wall, stop-motion horror short based on Robert’s popular coloring books.
“This will be our goriest film yet, and I’m very excited about that. It’s going to be insane,” says Shy. “I’m doing some things with animation that I’ve never done before and that makes it even more exciting. There will be blood… lot’s of blood.”
Robert adds, “Having grown up as a kid on all the old stop-motion, feel-good holiday specials like Rudolph and Frosty, it’s especially fun for me to be able to sic Ghouliana on those guys with chainsaws and witchcraft. It’s like an ultra-violent R-rated version of A Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Timed to coincide with a special holiday-themed coloring book release, titled The Beauty of Horror: Ghosts of Christmas, creator Alan Robert and animator Trent Shy plan to dismantle the North Pole by unleashing Robert’s gruesome characters upon Santa’s Workshop.
The Beauty of Horror: Ghosts of Christmas Coloring Book arrives in stores October 2018.
