This Thursday marks the debut of the Black Museum Debate Club. For its maiden voyage, the club will ask four teams to square off and decide once and for all which Stephen King film adaptation is better than all the other Stephen King film adaptations. The event will be judged by Stuart Feedback Andrews, host of the Rue Morgue Podcast, and will feature Astron 6’s Steve Kostanski, horror artist and RM columnist Ghoulish Gary Pullin, RM Managing Editor Monica S. Kuebler, and more.
King of the Ring: Stephen King Movie Debate kicks off Thursday, November 7 at 8 p.m. at Big Picture Cinema – East (1035 Gerrard Steet East, Toronto). Check out the full press release for all the details…
Artist Bernie Wrightson and writer Steve Niles, whom I like to think of as the Godfather and Michael Corleone of horror comics, are curating a horror-themed art show for Austin’s Guzu Gallery. Something Spooky kicks off with an opening reception on Friday, October 18, and will be on display through November 25. The show will feature the likes of Dan Brereton, Greg Ruth and Ben Templesmith, as well as Rue Morgue art columnist Ghoulish Gary Pullin and Fright Gallery alum M. Fersner. (Click past the jump for a wee preview of Fersner’s Something Spooky contribution.)

A TWISTED HOUR WITH THE TWISTED TWINS
Filmmakers JEN and SYLVIA SOSKA discuss movies, body horror and the inspiration for their groundbreaking films Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary, as well as their segment in the upcoming ABCs of Death 2.
Join us in a very special reunion of the stars who made the classic horror hit Re-Animator. With JEFFREY COMBS, BARBARA CRAMPTON, BRUCE ABBOTT and CHARLES BAND….
The post title was a bit of a spoiler, so this probably won’t come as much of a surprise: We’re giving away five copies of Allan Graves’ Zombook! This ridiculously awesome volume from London-based Graffito Books features zombie art by Ghoulish Gary Pullin, RM designer Andrew Wright, Jason Edmiston, Eric Pigors, Jeff Zornow, The Pizz, Tom Bagley and many more! You can leave it on your coffee table to let your friends know that, A) you are very fancy, and B) you really, really dig zombies…
Let it never be said that Ghoulish Gary Pullin doesn’t know his way around a zombie apocalpyse. And if you’ve ever said it, let you never say it again, or somthing like that. Feast your pussy little eyeballs on Gary’s Texas Frightmare Weekend 2013 poster! TFW is lurching into the Lone Scar State on May 3-5, and the cast of The Walking Dead are among the convention’s many, many guests. (You HAVE entered our TFW contest, right? We’re giving away a trip for two to TFW, including airfare, hotel accomodations and VIP passes, and entering is easier than getting crossbow-shot in the face by Norman Reedus…)
They’ve invaded our cities, our shopping malls and our graveyards, but there is one place that has so far escaped the inevitable onslaught of ravenous skinbags: our coffee tables. What may be the last bastion of civilization has fallen, though, with the publication of The Zombook, a glossy, 250-page, full-colour art book, featuring all manner of creative depictions of the zombified undead.
RM writer and copy editor extraordinaire Claire Horsnell gets the skinny on the horror art tome that sends a beastiary of shamblers straight into your living room…
With the zombie zeitgeist showing no signs of resting in peace anytime soon, there’s never been a better time to revisit the work of the master. This Halloween, TIFF is kicking off a massive George A. Romero retrospective, with the man himself introducing several of the screenings. Click past the jump for the full line-up!
Naturally, an event such as this deserves some badass art to go along with it. To that end, Ghoulish Gary Pullin has designed the limited edition poster you see here. Silk-screened on 100 lb. natural white cardstock, the signed and numbered prints will be available at the TIFF Bell Lightbox store on All Hallows’ Eve (that would be October 31), for just $30. Be warned, though: only 100 of these babies will be printed, so they’ll go quicker than rotter fodder in a Pennsylvania shopping mall.
This year’s Festival of Fear came and with it brought the petrifying presences of John Carpenter (check out his Q & A with Dave Alexander), Tony Todd, James Marsters, Juliet Landau, Rose McGowan, Chris Sarandon, and the list goes on and on, but there is so much more to a convention than just the featured guests. The following photo round-up gives a glimpse into some other great artists, filmmakers, exhibitors and fans who haunted the convention and may have been missed even by some who attended the festival.
Imagine an alternative universe of Canadian horror movies that didn’t, couldn’t and maybe even shouldn’t get made… but we’d still love to see. RM’s Dave Alexander has brought together some of Canada’s most celebrated genre filmmakers, illustrators and designers to create If They Came From Within – a gallery of poster art for Maple Syrup genre films that don’t exist.
Join him for the gala premiere this Friday, July 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at La Cinémathèque Québécoise, as part of Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival (July 20 – 29), to see what happens when the imaginations behind such films as Hobo With a Shotgun, My Bloody Valentine, Father’s Day, Pontypool, Splice and Smash Cut intersect with acclaimed genre artists such as James White, Jason Edmiston, Ghoulish Gary Pullin, Justin Erickson, Vince Marcone, and more!
