Horror Icons Illustrated Ironically Using Cosmetics and Beauty Supplies

Matt Andrews Horror Icons Created With Cosmetics

Artist Matt Andrews cleverly and beautifully illustrated some of horror’s biggest icons using only cosmetics and beauty supplies. And if that task wasn’t intricate enough, the beauty product he used for each horror baddie was chosen for its ironic twist; for example; Nosferatu and Dracula were created with bronzer, The Wolfman with shaving cream, and The Creature From The Black Lagoon in baby powder. Each illustration has a little story to go with it explaining why those products were chosen.

The artwork is part of Andrews’ book, Cosmonstrography: Cosmetic Monster Photography, which is available via Blurb for $16.

Andrews posted 13 images online, which also includes killers like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers. Check out all 13 images here below.

Happy Birthday To The Original Freddy Krueger Robert Englund

Freddy Krueger Robert Englund

Happy 65th birthday today to Robert Englund, the character actor best known for his portrayal of the iconic horror-meister Freddy Krueger, who terrorized, slashed, and serial-killed his way through characters’ bad dreams in Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street film series.

Englund, born in Glendale, CA, in 1947, began acting at the age of 12 in a local children’s theater program in his hometown. He stayed with acting, and by the 1970s, he was fresh out of drama school, looking for leading man parts. Englund was one of the many struggling actors at the time who tried out for the role of Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ epic sci-fi classic Star Wars. After bouncing around Hollywood for a few more years, being typecast in smaller roles as either a nerd or a redneck character, he finally landed a role in 1983 on the original version of the aliens-attack-Earth TV series V. Portraying the character of Willie, a kinder, gentler, almost lovable alien so to speak, it was a stark contrast to the typical bloodthirsty devoid of scruples stereotypes of how alien characters were usually portrayed in various mediums. A year later, after V ran its course and was cancelled, Englund landed the role which brought him fame and iconic status, that of Freddy Krueger.

Kill Zombies As Buffy, Machete, Freddy Krueger In George Romero-Inspired ‘Call Of Duty: Black Ops’ Expansion

The Movie God   |  @   |  
space

A very special added bonus is set to be released with the new Call of Duty: Black Ops expansion pack, called Escalation.

One of the maps that will come with the expansion is called “Call of the Dead” and is inspired by the man who’s pretty much single-handedly responsible for the zombie sub-genre, George A. Romero, who’s also part of the game itself. In it you’ll be able to take on an army of the undead, which Call of Duty has become known for in their games and extra DLC packs, but it’s WHO you get to play as that makes this particular expansion so amusing.

You can see a very grindhouse-inspired trailer for the Black Ops expansion by clicking on over to the other side now!

Blend Of Doom: Determining The Ultimate Geek Movies Of All Time

The Ultimate Geek Movies Of All TimeThis week, the podcast Social Blend, which I co-host with Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74, was invaded by the Geeks of Doom! Empress Eve and Tched were considerate enough to join us in a discussion focusing on what we believe to be The Ultimate Geek Movies of All Time.

Quite frequently, you will find some blogs try to come up with some attempt at a “Top 10” list of best movies within any given subject area, but for this special edition of Social Blend, we decided to simply discuss, debate, and squabble about (and in some cases, ridicule) the movies we collectively believe should be on every geek’s DVD shelf.

Aside from the obvious selections from the dominions of Star Wars and Star Trek, we had a look at all kinds of movies from a wide range of genres and categories — from movies based on comics, to science fiction, to music-based films, to horror and beyond.

Spoiler Talk: A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

A Nightmare on Elm StreetIntro by The Movie God.

A title that certainly needs no introduction, the remake/reboot/re-imagining/re-envisioning of the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street is now here.

Just like with Friday the 13th back in February of 2009, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company is bringing the dark lord of your very worst dreams, Freddy Krueger, back to cinemas to try and terrify a whole new generation of young fans.

Despite the obvious visual updates to the character and world, horror purists are still having trouble warming up to this new Nightmare on Elm Street. But what did YOU think? Was it superior to the older movies? Was is a terrible remake? Is it fun, despite its lacking qualities?

This time around, the idea is to try and add a level of realism to the story, first with the appearance of Freddy Krueger, which is a gruesomely accurate depiction of a burn victim. Instead of bringing back fan-favorite Robert Englund (I’m still waiting for Freddy vs. Jason 2!), producers cast another current fan-favorite in Jackie Earle Haley, who dusts off his best Rorschach voice for the part.

Also, in the beginning, Freddy doesn’t start as a pure killer. He begins as a simple, nobody of a man who’s accused of unthinkable acts against the children of Elm Street and finds himself running from an angry mob of parents. But the parents’ final act of vengeance actually unleashes an unspeakable evil as the dream demon emerges years later, ready to have his revenge within the subconscious of many unsuspecting victims.

Wake up as soon as possible and run to the other side to read our spoiler-filled thoughts on the movie, and then vent and praise your own views! It’s time for SPOILER-TALK!
