It has been another amazing year in the world of screen printed cult movie art work. One of the best sites out there isMondotees.com, they work with tons of artists across the globe and have created a collective dedicated to putting artistic spins on your favorite movie posters. They put together art galleries and also do a lot with the Alamo draft house which has many screenings for fans of 80’s horror and sci-fi cult flms. This is an extensive collection of all my favorite screen prints from this past 2012 year! enjoy!
Being a huge fan of all things sci-fi, im actually pretty excited for Ridley Scott’s prequel to the original horror classic Aliens. This trailer looks pretty promising, lets hope it’s as good or better then the prequel to John Carpenter’s “The Thing”!
Seeing as this past Thursday was Thanksgiving, i thought i would ring in some of the holiday cheer with a bit of blood and gore. This particular film has been sitting in my instant que for about a year, but only because of how ridiculous the movie sounds. The movie is called “Thankskilling” and is about a foul mouthed, homicidal turkey, who comes back from the dead every thanksgiving to murder “white people” for taking American soil from the Native Americans, and for slaughtering his kind. The movie follows 4-5 stereotypical college kids, who get caught up in the turkeys murderous rampage, while on their break from classes. His best weapon of choice is a musket styled shotgun, which is only funny because of its irony. Why wouldn’t a killer turkey use a shotgun as his weapon of choice? This vengeful bird, sports a wily temper as well as some of the funniest one liners i’ve ever heard in a low budget film. Which by the way, only cost 3.5k to create. This movie is pretty bad in many ways, the jokes are terrible, the characters are cliche, the plot doesn’t really make sense, and the acting is atrocious. Does that mean that this is not an enjoyable movie? Not in the slightest! This movie actually holds it’s own as a holiday cult classic and i mean, how many horror movies are out there about thanksgiving? Theirs like a billion about Christmas and Halloween! In one scene, the turkey murders a man, who is making sweet doggie-styled love to his partner.
After a quick axe to the back of his head, the turkey then quickly takes his position and begins to have his way with her, only to shout “You’ve been stuffed!!!!” Their are countless hysterical lines by turkey and stupid college kid a like in this flick and needless to say i was pleasantly surprised. Next time you think about that bird your mom’s been baking for hours on end, think about the decades of turkey genocide that humans have committed for tradition and what it would be like if you were on the receiving end; getting stuffed!
