Art: The Blackcoat’s Daughter by Ben Turner

For Oz Perkins’ The Blackcoat’s Daughter, the devil really was in the details. His film’s representation of the devil through slow-burning terror and manipulation was a fantastic and ultimately refreshing revival for such an old-school trope. Using his characters as vehicles for destruction and possession, while only hinting at the devil himself, is why I […]

Art: Halloween by Anthony Petrie

One of the (many) great things about John Carpenter’s Halloween is how the terror, its Boogeyman, and the story itself combined to create such an authentic atmosphere.

The movie is a hell of an experience, and while […]

Art: Jaws by Flore Maquin

Look, there’s not a whole lot we can say about Steven Spielberg’s Jaws that hasn’t been said already—it’s an out-and-out masterpiece, so we’ll just leave it at that. French graphic artist Flore Maquin’s take on the 1975 classic, however, has plenty to say. I’ve featured Maquin’s art on here before—you might remember this stunning Bride […]
