Shane Douglas Keene kicks off Ink Heist’s new segment ‘A Bloody Bestiary’ with a look at sub-sea monstrosities in an article called ‘Blood in the Water.’ He looks at fiction and film and the role the sea and its inhabitants play in frightening stories.
Film School Rejects M. G. McIntyre writes a retrospective of Shaun of the Dead, proclaiming as the best horror comedy ever made. The reason? Because it has the biggest heart.
No so much must read as must see, the work of St Louis, Missouri-based artist Lauren Marx uses depictions of animals to portray themes of birth, death, nature and the suffering caused by mental illness. While macabre and disturbing, her art is strikingly beautiful.
