Holiday Horror is HERE!

It's that time of year to start watching those Holiday classics. I've already cried like a baby to one of my favorites, The Family Stone, & usually save A Christmas Story & National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for the big day. Of course Black Christmas & Silent Night, Deadly Night need a viewing this time of year to satisfy the horror craving but we can't forget Love Actually, Frosty the Snowman & One Magic Christmas with Harry Dean Stanton as the coolest angel in existence. The list goes on & on & we all have our very own, special viewing traditions that we love to experience... Well, there's a new, AMAZING film that I saw this weekend that will definitely be a new, holiday tradition. Yessir, I plan on watching this instant classic this time each year, every year, for the rest of my life. Written & directed by the same mastermind who brought us my favorite character of all time, Sam, & easily one of my favorite films of all time, Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty has done it again. Adding Christmas to his list of Holiday Horror, Dougherty brought us KRAMPUS this past weekend & it was a wonderful, whimsical world of frostbitten darkness! This movie is SO FUN & needs to be seen on the big screen. When I woke up like an excited, little kid on Christmas morning just a couple days ago on it's release date of Friday, December 4th, an image popped in my head that I HAD to get out. I pulled out my watercolors & smeared them around until THIS appeared:
I simply HAD to put these two icons together who are forever running wild in Dougherty's magically universe & inside our heads. The response to this image has been overwhelming & fans of these two movies have shown a ridiculous amount of support. With the special requests & shares that you have all provided, I'm now releasing this as a print. You can grab "HOLIDAY HORRORS MEET" as a 10"x 8" or a slightly larger 14"x 11" print at my store NOW. Again, I am truly blown away by everyone's words the past few days & you all continue to remind me why I do this "art" thing for a living (& why the horror genre has the absolute BEST fans out there!).

So, go get yourself a print for Christmas or gift one or two or three to those special friends & family members & most importantly, GO SEE KRAMPUS IMMEDIATELY! Take everyone you know & see it again & again! The opening weekend numbers were AMAZING & it debuted MUCH higher than expected which is the best news EVER for the genre! With Dougherty working on TRICK 'R TREAT 2 right now, this will guarantee him the freedom & budget to make it the best film he can for US!
