Josh Cooley, storyboard artist for Pixar, has an interesting hobby. When not working on films such as Up and Ratatouille , Cooley takes scenes from R-rated movies (including Jaws, Alien and Pan’s Labyrinth, among others) and illustrates them as if they were meant for a children’s book. The results are nothing short of amazing.
Recently, the horror anthology has made a comeback, with V/H/S and The ABCS of Death (and their sequels) as prime examples of the subgenre’s resurgence. Add México Bárbaro to this list, an ambitious undertaking with eight Mexican filmmakers creating individual entries for the feature.

Vincent Price received his fair share of accolades and tributes in his lifetime. Now, to commemorate Price’s contribution to the arts (as well as the genre we hold so near and dear to our hearts), a campaign has started to have Price commemorated with his own stamp.
First introduced to audiences in the 1989 direct-to-video hit Puppet Master, the film’s living, lethal marionettes – which includes the knife and hook-handed Blade, the drill for a head Tunneler, the poisonous leech-vomiting Leech Woman, super-strong Pinhead and Jester – have been featured in a multitude of sequels and also turned into action figures and other collectibles over the years.
Now, fans of the diminutive but deadly puppets can pick up some new Puppet Master collectibles, including bobblehead figures, plush dolls, statues, limited-edition full-sized replica dolls and more, courtesy of the merchandise division of Charles Band’s Full Moon Features.
Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest Film Festival has announced the titles which will be shown as part of their Midnighters section. Among the films on this list of “provocative after-dark features for night owls” are several horror entries, one being Eduardo Sanchez’ EXISTS, which will finally see its world premiere. EXISTS was filmed on location in Texas and pays homage to The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), a film that heavily influenced Sanchez.
