Check out these polymer clay renditions of classic horror movie posters by Clay Disarray.
What movie poster would you like to see get the clay disarray makeover?
There are even more on the official Instagram account than the website!
In the history of this blog, I don’t think I’ve ever had more to say about the topic of a post than I do about about the movie House (Hausu).
The film company approached director Nobuhiko Obayashi about making a film similar to Jaws. And he did…if Jaws were about the horror laden psychedelic journey of 7 giggling Japanese schoolgirls visiting a cannibal recluse and her demonic witch-cat. Did I mention the girls are named Gorgeous, Fantasy, Kung Fu, Melody, Mac, Prof and Sweet?
They proceed to get devoured one by one in the most absurdist fashion imaginable (well, nothing about this movie is actually “imaginable.” It clearly sprang forth from the deepest wellspring of the director’s haunted unconscious). It’s not just as if the movie were made by someone on acid, but as if the movie itself then came alive…and took acid.
I’ll be going back and creating a GIANT album of incredible screen shots from the film (the ones online don’t do any justice), but I needed to share this with you guys immediately.
Believe it or not, I’m put off by a lot of “weird for the sake of weird” films. But this is some next level awesomeness. I hesitate to discuss my favorite scenes because I’m holding each and every one of you accountable for seeing this film, and I don’t want to spoil the fun surprises, which come roughly every 6 seconds.
Yes, that image above is indeed a flying Kung Fu kick from a dismembered lower half of a human body.

The legendary Jan Svankmajer is crowdfunding what is to be his last feature length film (hopefully not…a girl can dream).
A local pub in a small town. It’s Monday and the bar is closed, chairs are turned up on the tables. The pub is empty except for six amateur actors sitting in a corner. They’ve met to rehearse “The Insect Play” by the Čapek brothers. On a raised platform across the room we see a stage, set for Act II of the play. As the rehearsal progresses, the characters of the play are born and die with no regard to time. The actors slowly become one with them and some of them experience frightening transformations…
The campaign has already reached its stretch goals, which makes me so happy. See much more here.
I just discovered Sausage Studios and I’m really, really digging these films.
There are two full short films available as of this posting. Check them out!
Has anyone seen Isabel Peppard’s stop motion short film Butterflies? It looks amazing!
A young artist sits on the sidewalk, struggling to make a living. She makes drawings for the passersby. A businessman recognizes her talents and offers her a paying job. The prospect seems inviting but the reality threatens to kill her imagination…
Watch the official trailer:
I believe it’s available on iTunes. I can’t wait to see this!
I watched a rather unconventional but excellent documentary the other night: Finder’s Keepers.
From Rotten Tomatoes:
Recovering addict and amputee John Wood finds himself in a stranger-than-fiction battle to reclaim his mummified leg from Southern entrepreneur Shannon Whisnant, who found it in a grill he bought at an auction and believes it to therefore be his rightful property.
I wish I had taken screenshots during many of the news headlines during this film. It was absolutely hilarious, but not without substance and depth of human feeling. I recommend it. Watch the trailer:
Oh thank you, Rachel, for this…and your other invaluable contributions to this post.
