Looking to boost the unique cover art in your collections? Fox Home Entertainment has that covered with the re-release of 13 major cult horror films for October, movies like The Silence of the Lambs, The Amityville Horror, Carrie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 and more all grace the stage with really amazing art, you can actually catch samples of the art from Skuzzles below. I know I’m already debating which ones to pick up, it’s really cool when groups like this get to work on especially unique projects like these. The full snapshot from Skuzzles on the project is below.
At Skuzzles, we really want to offer artists the opportunity to work on titles they’re passionate about. We try to direct and pair artists where the it seems fit, but ultimately we want the artist to have equal say in how the art is executed. The goal is to keep the end result as close to the artists original vision as possible. Having said this, here’ s a little bit of feedback from the artists regarding their concepts behind the artwork:
Todd Slater: Invasion of the Body Snatchers – “What if the pod with the flower was shaped similar to a sternum in a ribcage (it’s really close now) and the white tendrils expand and extend from the pod to form more of the ribs and skeleton? The background could be deep dark outer space. My thought is that *the pods are building a new you*.”Randy Ortiz: Silence of the Lambs – “…I wanted to go a more symbolic route and have it be clean and classy.”Dan Mumford: Last house on the left – “… I found the scene where Mari walks into the water to be quite haunting and probably the most pivotal moment, so i worked from that and created quite a haunting still moment based around the lake she walks into. We also have two of the murderers standing there and her necklace dangling down with the smallest hint of blood red seeping through.”Jason Edmiston: Child’s Play – “For my Child’s Play art, I wanted to show Chucky’s maniacal character, at the pinnacle of his power. I love the black magic quality of the movie, and tried to capture the killer doll in mid-chant, surrounded by crazy voodoo lightning, He scared me when I first saw this movie as a teen, and I wanted my cover art to evoke the same feeling. Most of the Child’s play art is dark, with a black background. I thought my brightly lit piece would stand out from previous iterations.”“Ghoulish” Gary Pulin:
The Amityville Horror – “I just really went down the rabbit hole playing up different variables with the windows and the passage way to hell they find in the basement, but I’m happy with the graphic, iconic approach we landed on for the cover. When I reversed the shot of the house into the white negative space, it’s features of it really seemed to jump out. I knew I wanted to do something with the flies as well, so it seemed to make sense that they make up the portrait of James Brolin, as he goes through a transformation from good natured to an evil presence throughout the film.”Carrie – “There’s a lot of ways you can go with a movie like Carrie but I wanted to focus on the intensity of the final scene and her rage filled eyes (if you look close they are fire balls). The silhouette of the knife is a nod to her insane mother and the control she’s unable to keep over her.”Teen Wolf – This was a silk-screened poster I had created with Skuzzles previously and I’m really excited to see it become the face for an official release of the film. I hope I made Stiles proud.It was an absolute pleasure to work on this project with everyone involved. Don’t forget to checkout the other works of each artist by visiting their website! We couldn’t be happier with the end result, and we really hope collectors enjoy these as much as we do. Let us know what you think!
