These Horror Icon Wall Hangers Are a Must for Halloween

Trevor Henderson is offers horror fans some new Halloween decorations that are an alternative to the classic wall hangers featuring skeletons, witches and black cats. The artist has hand-crafted five wall hanger designs that are based on modern horror icons. They’re now all up for sale via Henderson’s Etsy page. Peruse our gallery here – you’ll find accompanying links if you want to make a few purchases (I snagged the Myers and Cropsey hangers). He’s also got some killer stickers based on The Funhouse, Stagefright, Night of the Creeps and more.

Video Proof ADI Created Practical Creatures for The Thing

A very cool video posted by Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. – the FX house behind this year’s The Thing prequel – takes you inside their workshop for a revealing, insightful look at how some of the creatures were created.  When the film was released in October, it took a bit of a lambasting for its excessive use of CGI.  But as the video inside shows, there was an effort to create a practical “Thing” before it was augmented with CGI.  Beware, though, there are spoilers…including a look at the eponymous intergalactic being in “pilot” form.
