Welcome back to Matt’s Halloween Comic Fest Countdown! From now until HCF (Saturday, October 28th), Matt will be sharing some of his favorite horror comics and horror movies with us all. Let’s see what he has in store for today:
Hello everyone! Today’s book recommendation is Wormwood: The Gentleman Corpse by one of my all-time favorite artists/creators Ben Templesmith!
Wormwood follows the story of a Trans-dimensional God who can control a dead body by burrowing into the host’s head. He’s a snazzy dressing, earth saving old god we can all love. Templesmith’s art isn’t something you want to miss. He is as unique as they come.
If this sounds like a book for you, we currently have both Wormwood: Gentlemen Corpse Omnibus and the new one-shot Wormwood Goes to Washington in stock now!
Now that we have you all set with a good book, how about we turn to the world of film?
You may have noticed that that the movies I’ve been recommending aren’t the big mainstream movies that everyone knows. That said, no Halloween list is complete without at least one Nightmare on Elm Street movie.
My personal favorite from the franchise is Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors I feel the series really knew what it wanted to be during the development of this film and leaned into it.
The movie follows a group of kids who cant sleep who are living in a psychiatric hospital, insert Freddy Krueger here and you have the makings for a awesome movie! Nancy Callahan returns from the first film as the star once again and Freddy’s antics, one liners and kills are the best the series has to offer.
Welcome to the Prime Time!!!
Enjoy and check back tomorrow for more spooky goodness!
