Olympus Athens   |  

Box of Dread

DVDs, CDs, books, wine, beer, fruit…all can be had with a monthly subscription for an affordable fee. But how do you get your monthly horror fix? Box of Dread fulfills that need. Every month a box of creepy surprises arrives, containing an assortment of goodies, which could include DVDs, t-shirts, stickers, comics, toys, and more. And although there is a general theme each month, no two boxes are exactly alike.

According to their FAQs page, they aim to “deliver the horror convention experience in a box”. Pick from two plans. The first is $20 a month, including shipping, and you can cancel at any time. The second is $57 for three months, including shipping, and you can cancel at the end of each three. Both plans are automatic renewal.

The Fantastic and Gothic Art of David Palumbo
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

A Mosaic of Images From The Gritty Gallery By David Palumbo

Fantasy art and illustration has a beautiful and rich history. From the beautiful and titillating Margaret Brundage covers for Weird Tales through the poster, magazine, and album art of Frank Frazetta to the contemporary work of Marc Silvestri, artists and illustrators have brought color and shape to worlds of wonder. Be they scenes from the past, the future, or lands that never were, art plays an important role in fleshing out description and dialog.

Into this worthy tradition comes artist David Palumbo. Be it the historic flight of the first woman cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova, in June 1963; the return of the Cthulhu and the Old Ones to destroy a modern metropolis’ a Victorian image of Jack The Ripper, or creature art for the trading card game Legend Of The Cryptids, Palumbo brings a strong eye for detail, light, and color that immediately draws the eye. Parts of his paintings show detail with clarity, where others are intentionally vague. The figures often suggest a kinetic sense of impending motion that no photograph could properly convey. The faces are caught in expressions of terror, struggle, or bewilderment.

Recreate ‘Jurassic Park’ Hacking Scene With Jurassic Systems
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Jurassic Park

Remember that scene from Steven Spielberg‘s original Jurassic Park where Newman sabotages the park’s high-tech security measures in order to steal some dinosaur embryos and Samuel L. Muthaf***in’ Jackson! tries briefly to restore order before telling the Oscar-winning director of Gandhi that he can’t get the park back online? I’m pretty sure it was in the trailer.

Jurassic Systems is an interactive HMTL5/Javascript site created by programmer Tully Robinson that allows you to recreate this scene. When you visit the site, will be taken to the main page where the Jurassic Park scene is available to watch as a YouTube embed. It’s advised that you watch this scene before proceeding to the fun part because you will need to know the three commands Jackson’s character enters before that annoying little animation of Newman’s sweaty, bulbous noggin on a cartoon Elvis body (never noticed that part before) wagging his finger and saying, “Ah-ah-ah, you didn’t say the magic word!” Enter the three commands in the correct phrasing and order and….well, you know what happens next. The system also accepts these five basic commands: “access,” “system,” “ls,” “display,” and “help.”

Check Out These Geeky and Punny Tees From Hey, That’s Super
Waerloga69   |  

Hey, That's Super Rob'n design

If you’re anything like me, you are constantly on the look out for casual clothing that isn’t a mass-produced item that would be found in closets all across the country. I spend many mornings checking out different t-shirt sites for unique items that appeal to my nerdy passions. I’m also notorious for correcting grammar (friends, strangers, whomever is near…you get the picture). So when I was shown a site that mixes the two, you can imagine how entertained I was! Truthfully, I started giggling when reading a few.

Having said all of that, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Hey, That’s Super, a very original, and quite funny, shop featuring tees and more!

David Lynch’s ‘Dune’ Receives A Righteous Sweding (Video)
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Dune

“The year is, like, a billion or something….”

Toys, hastily-assembled costumes, cardboard box “shields,” fake eyebrows, cheesy effects that make Mystery Science Theater 3000 look like 2001: A Space Odyssey, sock puppet “sandworms,” lots of overacting, and of course…space pen. Yes, friends, David Lynch‘s much-derided 1984 adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s landmark sci-fi novel Dune has become the latest film to receive its own sweded video.

You can watch the 7-minute video here below.

Rare Images Of Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly In ‘Back To The Future’
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Back to the Future

This might not exactly a breaking news story automatically worthy of your attention, but it’s Back to the Future-related and we here at Geeks of Doom don’t need any more excuse than that.

io9 has published an extensive collection of candid production photos from the Back to the Future trilogy culled from various sources and fans of the Robert Zemeckis-directed movies. If you scroll down to the end of the article you’ll notice a trio of stills from the early days of filming on the original, back when Eric Stoltz was the first actor cast as Marty McFly.

You can check out those pics – along with a few I included just for fun – here below.

New ‘Doctor Who’ Star Peter Capaldi’s Oscar-Winning Short Film ‘Frank Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life’ (Video)
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Frank Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life

Because we here at Geeks of Doom are just absolutely mad about Doctor Who – and also because it’s one slow news day – I present to you a short film written and directed by none other than the newest actor to take up the mantle of the avuncular Time Lord from Gallifrey, Peter Capaldi.

Capaldi made Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life in 1995 with the cooperation of the BBC. The 22-minute feature was the actor’s first time calling the shots on his own film and later shared that year’s Academy Award for Best Live-Action Short Film with Peggy Rajski’s Trevor. You can watch it here below.

Jim Henson and Frank Oz’ Original Cut Of ‘The Dark Crystal’ Lives Again In This Fan Reconstruction
BAADASSSSS!   |  

The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson and Frank Oz‘s 1982 cinematic fantasy The Dark Crystal remains a marvel of practical visual effects, puppetry, and classical storytelling more than three decades after it was first released in theaters. A longtime favorite of kids and adults, Crystal‘s cult following has grown over the years and the film continues to win over new fans every time it gets inserted into a DVD or Blu-ray player or screens theatrically.

I know it did with me. Earlier this year I blind bought the extras-packed Blu-ray release of The Dark Crystal from Barnes & Noble to see if the movie deserved the love and adulation that has been piled on it since its big-screen debut a week before Christmas 1982. As a proponent of practical effects, models, miniatures, and matte paintings over CGI creations I was amazed by the beautiful imagery that directors Henson and Oz – working from a screenplay by David Odell (Masters of the Universe) – and their team of FX wizards and puppeteers headed by concept artist Brian Froud worked tirelessly to bring to life at a considerable (for the early 1980′s) budget of $17 million.
