REMINDER Heavy Metal Horror @ Nitehawk Cinema Oct 21st & 22nd

THIS HALLOWEEN, WILD EYE INVITES YOU TO BANG YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE MOVIE SCREEN – WITH A RARE 35mm SCREENING OF 1986’s HEAVY METAL CLASSIC TRICK OR TREAT! PLUS A SLASH N’ GRIND TRAILER SHOW!

Prepare to get caught in a 35mm mosh pit as Wild Eye Releasing presents The Heavy Metal Horror Show! Appearing at Brooklyn’s own Nitehawk Cinema for two nights only, Friday, October 21st & Saturday, October 22nd, starting at Midnight.

Headlining the bill is the 1986 head banging horror classic Trick or Treat directed by Charles Martin Smith. Experience the mysterious death and backwards record-induced return of Rock N’ Roll superstar Sammi Curr (Tony Fields) as he haunts his biggest fan Skippy, er, we mean Eddie (Mark Price).  Watch as Curr shreds till everyone on screen is literally dead, with special guest appearances by Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons.

And if that isn’t enough to satiate your sick minds, make sure to show up early to catch opening act The Ghost Of The New York Grindhouse Trailer Show performing a full hour of spine tingling horror and exploitation trailers from the 60’s and 70’s that will raise your hair, but without that can of Aquanet.

So cancel your Dungeons and Dragons game and raise your devil-horned hands in the air as we bring Heavy Metal to the silver screen in its purest form, with the entire evening’s events being screened from original 35mm prints and the volume turned up to 11.

So, avoid price gouging scalpers and get your tickets now! Advance tickets are available at the Nitehawk Cinema box office and at NitehawkCinema.com. For more information, visit wildeyereleasing on facebook, wildeyereleasing.com or nitehawkcinema.com.

Don’t be a poser, and come crank it with Wild Eye this Halloween on October 21st and 22nd.

To Say Nothing of the Owlbear

DC did it. In an industry where fighting for attention on the shelf is the key to the game, DC has rounded up the competition and painted their covers beige*.

Few people are going to care this week that IDW have Dungeons and Dragons: Drizzt #2, a new ongoing comic book about D&D’s favorite Drow Elf Drizzt Do’Urden written (partially) by R. A. Salvatore and featuring a cover where a dwarf headbutts an Owlbear. AN OWLBEAR, sugar! They’re the honeybadger of the D&D world!

This is possibly one of the best covers of the year…but is anyone going to notice?

Not when you have Action Comics #1, Batgirl #1, Detective Comics #1…heck, even Animal Man #1 on the shelves! All the Owlbear carnage in the entire Forgotten Realms ain’t going to roll a critical hit against any of DC’s crop of 52 new titles with a big “#1” on the front.

Now it is true, Marvel has the New Avengers Annual #1 which will kick off some of the aftermath of Fear Itself, especially Wonderman’s new team the Revengers! Plus, Marvel also has the full color relaunch of Gabriel Ba’s Cassanova in Cassanova: Avaritia #1. Too bad these will be overlooked by many, as they sound great! Continue reading

Frank Frazetta: Legend

By Devin T. Quin

Barry Windsor Smith

As the internet pushes the frontiers of fantasy and concept art to greater heights it becomes increasingly more difficult to remember a world without conceptart.com, imaginefx magazine, Spectrum and deviantart.com. The fantasy artist, likewise, has evolved into smaller, faster and more stylized professionals than ever before. If one would follow the evolution comparison we could argue that contemporary fantasy artists are a bunch of chickens!

Not because they are cowardly, but because they are a hearty, versatile breed of artists flourishing successfully. They are plentiful, and they are productive. Where fantasy art used to be relegated to the seedy covers of men’s magazines, and helpful instructors in this style unheard of, today’s fantasy artists can access peer reviews on countless internet forums or even in classrooms across the collegiate USA!

Some of these artists will never find work, and will live out their lives as internet trolls and nay-sayers, creating worthless chicken scratches of derivative quality and clucking their discontent at popular artists and peers to anyone who’ll read their bitter posts. Continue reading
