Bennings and Macready from “the thing” (1982)

what can I say about John Carpenters classic that you don’t already know? probably nothing, unless your Rian who refuses to acknowledge the very obvious fact that Childs is the thing. 

I’ve decided to depict my favorite scene in the movie. As if the group surrounding The unfinished copy of Bennings wasn’t creepy enough the thing goes on to make one of the must unsettling noises in all of cinema. 

Littered with great performances and some of the best practical effects the genre has to offer, its perfect for a halloween viewing. even if you’re a no good, evil alien monster…like childs. 

The thing has never appeared in 3-D.

So, maybe you’ve seen Night Of The Living Dead, Dawn Of The Dead, and Day Of The Dead. And you totally should have seen those movies because they’re all great. But even if you’re well versed in the George Romero zombie-verse, you can’t call yourself a true zombie-phile until you’ve seen Return Of The Living Dead (no relation).
Short of conceiving of and writing the script for Alien, Return Of The Living Dead is unquestionably Dan O’Bannon's most significant and important contribution to the film world. True, it is derivative of Romero's films…but it's so twisted, imaginative, and funny that it holds a well-earned place in any zombie conversation. This, you cannot deny.
Return Of The Living Dead is filled with fun, memorable characters, but the one who has stuck with me the most over the years is Tarman: the single most iconic, recognizable zombie in all of cinema. This, you can also not deny. I didn’t perfectly capture his likeness, but just look at that face! That wall-eyed gaze…those shreds of flesh dangling limply from his slow-cooked chin…that gaping maw that almost resembles a smile…he’s a treat to clap one’s eyes on. And he talks!
Seriously, if you haven’t seen Return Of The Living Dead, you owe it to yourself to do so. It has excellent practical special effects, a brisk pace, suspense, humor, and grotesque visuals to spare, and, if you don’t mind my saying so, an excellent nude scene featuring the gorgeous and infamous Linnea Quigley. This film truly has it all.
Drawn on 2.5x3.5” bristol, inked with one of my numerous Tombow brush pens, colored with Copic markers, and saved in the end by a blender (the marker, not the home appliance) and a white gel pen.

Chronos by Joe Daxberger
Stock*tober is rolling right along, and here’s my fourth card for Guillermo del Toro’s vampire movie Chronos. I like this movie quite a bit. Being his first film, its low budget and not as polished as his later work, but its got plenty of charm, and creeps, as well.

Tony Sedani here to give you a frightful Slasher. Leatherface of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.  The original is by far the scariest movie in my opinion.  Watch it on VHS to maintain the gritty feeling.  Something about Leatherface just being a normal overweight dude who likes to chop people up is just chilling.  You can find Leatherface in 3-D in Texas Chainsaw 3-D (2011).  After the 3D art you can see my original inks underneath.

Heres a fun fact, for a time as children my brothers nickname was “Krueger” which came from my brothers love of the christmas sweater wearing maniac above. I can remember my brother picking out the costume at the woolworths at the westgate mall, sometime in the late 1980s. 

Myself I was never a fan.

anyway I was never happy with last years freddy card and thought id take another crack at the star of nightmare on elm street, which due to its success earned new line cinema the nickname “the house that freddy built” its always good when your company is built around a murderous pedophile who burns children in a furnace. ah, the 80s. 

Freddy can be see briefly in 3D, in 1991’s Freddy’s Dead: the final nightmare

Stock*tober rolls on!
So, Starship Troopers isn’t a horror movie, but it does feature lots of really cool looking monsters. Then there’s this big, bad mamma-jamma: the brain bug. I’ve written in Stock*tober posts of previous years about how I love a good grotesque scene in monster/horror movies. Those moments that are so disgusting and off-putting that I just know that the filmmakers were filming them just for myself and other freaks like me. Seth Brundle's eyes melting out of his face as he transforms into The Fly. Dr. Hill's severed head giving oral “pleasure” to a mortified Megan Halsey in The Re-Animator. Dr. Tillinghast sucking a doctor’s eyeball out of it’s socket with his mouth in From Beyond. Dren's sex scene in Splice. All moments that would shock and horrify any average movie-goer. Well, though I don’t think Starship Troopers is intended to be particularly scary, I’ve always found this scene to be especially hair-raising.
I tried to do the brain bug justice with a hearty dose of white gel pen to give it that wet, glistening property, but until you see the sequence in question, you have no idea how slimy and disgusting this bastard is. It oozes so much mucous that it almost makes me want to gag. And I love it. I know that sounds fucked up, but that’s just me, I guess.
"It’s afraid!"

"I’m going to eat your brains…and gain your knowledge."
I absolutely love Planet Terror. I think it perfectly captures what Rodriguez and Tarantino set out to do with Grindhouse. Its got everything I would want in a modern B-movie. It has great practical effects mixed in with the digital when necessary. It’s funny as hell, with some great, purposely goofy dialogue, while still having plenty of gore and action. And it makes as little sense as possible, so all the best parts of b-movie horror I used to rent for a dollar at the video store near my house is in this movie, and more.

Welcome back to Stocktober 3-D. Tony here again giving you another iconic Slasher! Jason Vorhees!  I love the Friday the 13th flicks. I would highly recommend parts 3-D, 4 & 6.  I love the different takes on his look in each movie by the respective directors. You can see Jason in 3-D in Friday the 13th Part 3-D (1982). Again, after the 3D version is the standard inks so you can see the piece in it’s original form.
