Happy Halloween!

PETER STRAIN HALLOWEENWell, we actually did it, horror fans. 31 Days of Halloween! Wolfman Josh here, BTW. Thanks mostly to Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker, who does this every single day of his life over on DVDinfatuation.com (so impressive), we brought you a horror review a day for the entire month of October along with our weekly podcasts covering the Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise in its entirety. Huge “thank you” to everyone else who participated! It’s been fun.

Dave wrote another amazing reviewing of another fascinating film today (read it here if you haven’t yet), but I also wanted to post this incredible piece of Halloween artwork from HMP listener Peter Strain. Peter is a talented illustrator from Belfast, U.K. and, as it would happen, is big fan of Horror Movie Podcast.

This guy is legit, with work published in places like The New Yorker, The Washington Post and Empire Magazine. For any cinephiles out there who collect custom alt movie posters and art prints (I’m looking directly at you, Juan), do yourself a favor and check out Peter’s webstore. So may wonderful pieces. Personally, I’m looking to get a copy of his Jaws and Life Aquatic artwork–and the Halloween image above. So much amazing stuff from Macbeth to The Evil Dead and more!

The most exciting thing I want to tease is that Peter and I have briefly discussed collaborating on the next round of HMP t-shirts I’ll be simplifying by hosting through TeeSpring. (I recently bought three t-shirts via TeeSpring and it is both a great buyer experience and a no-risk creator experience).

I’ve been personally`working on WolfMan Josh and Dr. Shock designs for quite awhile and I’d love Peter to improve upon them and bring them to life. Of course, I have a Jay of the Dead design idea as well. Anyway, stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, you can enjoy (and buy!) Peter’s awesome art and support a fellow HMP listener while getting yourself something to beautify your living space. If you’re interested, you can check out Peter’s official website and follow Peter on Twitter.

  1. NEED A GOOD HALLOWEEN PODCAST? Over on Movie Stream Cast I covered The Monster Squad ( http://bit.ly/1LXMhhD ), What We Do in the Shadows ( http://bit.ly/1Wm0oIJ ), The Guest ( http://bit.ly/1VG8S7U ), Cooties ( http://bit.ly/1KINUCp ) and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein ( http://bit.ly/1KL1NMW ). Over on The Sci Fi Podcast they covered the entire Alien franchise ( http://bit.ly/1Mnbp1D ). Plus, we just released a Halloween special ( http://bit.ly/1PWSf9J ). There is the ongoing “Spooky Flicks Fest” from our friends at Forgotten Flicks Remembers ( http://forgottenflix.com/ ) and I think the GeekCast guys even did something Halloween related ( http://bit.ly/1WpS0Ta ). And here on Horror Movie Podcast we, of course, covered the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise ( http://bit.ly/1Q0oIuD ).

  2. Happy Halloween to my favorite horror guys! I have very much enjoyed the 31 days of horror reviews and commend you for the time and effort it entailed. I’m excited to see new tshirt designs and will check out Peter’s art. Have a safe and happy Halloween guys!

  3. 31 days of Halloween day 31

    71. Hungry Hearts (***) – The trailer makes this look like a psychological horror but it really isn’t. Domestic family drama. Adam Driver’s face is all over this one so beware.
    72. Vertigo (****) – Ending with one of the all time great thrillers that I haven’t seen. Was the sequoia supposed to represent the giant boner that Jimmy Stewie had for that girl?

    Everything on this list was a first time view, but I also got in a viewing of Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and The Nightmare Before Christmas while giving out candy. And I caught the premiere of Ash vs The Evil Dead which was great. The girl in the show used to play Craig Ferguson’s producer on The Late Late Show.

  4. These prints are awesome. Love the Silence of the Lambs, Gremlins, Rocky, and Prometheus pieces, along with the Halloween one on here. Is love to see what he would do with a NOES piece.

    Great work, Peter. And thanks for bringing it to our attention, Wolfman. I hope everyone had a great Halloween.

    • Yeah man, thanks for posting the link, Josh. My favorite are Halloween, Jaws, and Prometheus. I can’t wait to see what the shirts look like. I still haven’t received my shirt by the way, so I’m wondering if Jay is still shipping or if my shirt got lost in the mail.

  6. Thanks so much for sharing this here Josh! This is my first time commenting but I’ve been listening a little over a year now. Very much looking forward to possibly making some shirts with you guys

    This Halloween me and my wife haven’t got to watch as many horror film as we would have liked due to the fact we have just bought our first house and have been extremely busy with that. But we did manage to find time for the original 1978 Halloween (a classic), Halloween 4 (definitely not as good as I remember…and that mask?!?) and the The Final Girls, which I have to say, I enjoyed greatly. It’s a fun little love letter to 80’s slasher cinema and the characters are actually pretty likeable in my opinion

    • Of course, Peter. You’re a huge talent and I hope to work with you on a couple of things. I knew our audience would appreciate your work.

      Can’t go wrong with the original Halloween!

      I was REALLY pleasantly surprised by Final Girls! Can’t wait to discuss it on the next Frankensteinian episode.

      And comment more, man. It’s a great community.

  8. I was thinking it might be a coolio idea to have a section designated to horror related art where either the hosts or the fans can post links to artists who currently do or have done cool horror related art in the past. And I’m not talking about hardcore horror. It’s all subjective anyway and if you think your artist is horror enough, then post away. It would be a good way to bring awareness to artists that we might not know exist. Anyway just a thought. And I’ll leave this here for your enjoyment:
