Mr. Tusk Watercolor Illustration

The Walrus and The Carpenter: Kevin Smith’s TUSK

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Clicking on some links may compensate myself and the blog. Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* Republished today in memory of Michael Parks. Tusk I became acquainted with a Walrus when I was lost at sea. I would describe Tusk as a horror-comedy. I really would. I’d also describe it…

The Midnight Meat Train Watercolor Illustration

#31: The Midnight Meat Train

Happy Halloween! Happy 31st Day of Horror! Let’s take one last ride. I promise, it’ll be quick. The Midnight Meat Train Step away from the meat. There is no arguing for The Midnight Meat Train on anyone’s “Best Of” list; it offers nothing new, nothing overwhelmingly special. If you’ve heard of it at all, it probably…

It Follows Watercolor Illustration

#30: It Follows

*The giveaway is now closed* By now you’ve realized that I like a slow build. A crawl even. This one walks with conviction. It Follows And the most terrible agony may not be in the wounds themselves but in knowing for certain that within an hour, then within ten minutes, then within half a minute,…

Ginger Snaps Watercolor Illustration

#19: Ginger Snaps

If you liked Jennifer’s Body, you’re going to get a kick out of this one. And even if you didn’t, my money’s still on the werewolf. Ginger Snaps Our little girl’s a young woman now. It’s honestly surprising to me that I haven’t covered a werewolf movie yet in this HorrorThon, because they are some…

Jennifer's Body Watercolor Illustration

#18: Jennifer’s Body

This is hands down the most quotable movie on the 31 days of horror calendar. Part of me thinks the best critical analysis of Jennifer’s Body is just an arbitrary list of every bit of genius that comes out of Jennifer Check and her best friend Needy Lesnicky’s mouths. But instead – because that would be…

Mister Babadook Watercolor Illustration

#15: The Babadook

You know it’s a fairy-tale when it has its own pop-up book. The Babadook If it’s in a word, or it’s in a book, you can’t get rid of The Babadook. First of all, let it be known that you can in fact own your own copy of Mister Babadook’s book (it was limited edition, and…

Klaus Kinski Nosferatu Watercolor Illustration

#14: Nosferatu (1979)

I know yesterday I was saying things like, “Italian horror is the BEST!” And I meant it. But, you guys – There is no horror like German horror. Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu: The Vampyre There are things more horrible than death. Clearly I have more than one (or ten) favorites. But when it comes to dark,…

Jeremy Irons Dead Ringers Watercolor Illustration

#11: Dead Ringers

This is not a horror movie, per say. But it is most certainly not an erotic thriller as the box description would have you believe. At least, I have an exceptionally hard time finding any part of this Cronenberg feature “erotic.” But maybe that’s because I am a woman, and my vagina is under attack…

Zombie Brain Watercolor Art

#10: Fiend Without a Face

I can’t imagine a single person that wouldn’t love this movie. I also think everyone loves The Fly with Jeff Goldblum, so take this with a grain of salt. But, I’m just going to say it: if you don’t like these fiends, I don’t know if we can be friends. Fiend Without A Face I don’t mean to…

Phantasm Horror Movie Watercolor

#4: Phantasm

Tonight was supposed to be Pumpkinhead, but Netflix failed me, and Phantasm arrived instead. However, the big bad Monster theme of this week will not be defeated, because when you’re talking about boogeymen, stalker types, The Tall Man shall suffice. Know what I’m sayin’? You probably don’t. Phantasm “This guy’s not going to leak all over my ice…
