Art: Halloween by Gary Pullin

John Carpenter’s all-timer carved an everlasting mark on horror when it debuted in 1978, which is why giving it praise in 2018 feels a lot like explaining to someone why oxygen is important—what more is there left to say about one of horror’s greatest films? While we may have run out of words to describe Halloween’s greatness, artists like Gary Pullin remind us why we fell in love with this movie in the first place, and he does it all with just a single, ineffable image.

Pullin’s take on the holiday classic is actually a shot from the movie itself, and it’s not just one of the film’s most terrifying moments, but it’s the first time we see that its monster, Michael Myers, has a personality underneath all that rage. I love what Pullin has done here, taking a moment in the film and expanding it into something even scarier—how would you like to see this standing over your bed on Halloween night?

If you are ever attacked by a gorilla just sit back and relax while you enjoy the once in a life time feeling of your limbs being ripped off.
