Art: Mandy by Saniose

Calling a movie an instant cult classic gets thrown around a lot (usually undeservedly, too), but you’d be hard-pressed finding anyone who’d disagree with that sentiment when it comes to Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy, a bloodletting burst of visual wizardry that swirls into a raging nightmare.

Art: Army of Darkness by Robert Sammelin

Ash’s evolution throughout the Evil Dead trilogy is as fascinating as it gets. It’s a journey that starts with him being forced to dismember all of his friends (and girlfriend) in a cabin in the woods and ends with him traveling through a time-eating wormhole and becoming a full-blown medieval action hero. The franchise covers […]
