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 […]

Danny running into the twins is one […]

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 […]
