Not much is known about this soon-to-be gem of horror, but Austin Hinderliter's upcoming horror flick is sure to be busting at the waistline with fright!

Admittingly I do not know too much about what this film is going to be about... but when Hinderliter pitched it to me, the words "small town", "pregnant" and "murder" stuck out in my mind.... very eerie.

THE NEW FAMILY.... circa 1987.

Be sure to give the film a "like" here:


When the immensely talented (and quite hysterical) Damian Maffei (Christmas with the Dead, The House That Cried Blood) contacted me and told me he was going to be adapting one of his favorite author and good friend, Brian Keene's, novel into a movie, he asked if Sadist Art Designs would be interested in doing the poster.

Of course, I jumped at the opportunity.  Having read the script, penned by Ted Rypel, I instantly realized this would be an instant horror classic.

So here it is... straight outta 1986.

Please support the film and give it a "like" here:

Sadist Art Designs was honored to be a part of Fangoria's competition in which three artists competed to come up with the key-art for Jeff Monahan's new macabre horror love story,"Corpsing".  I was able to watch the movie and pull screen grabs if necessary.  Instead, I decided to go with a very "Chopping Mall"-esque iconic vibe--something that would evoke a morbid curiosity to the viewer.

Ah, my good people from overseas deliver yet another great short... this time involving some wicked supernatural scares by way of Quija Board.  I absolutely love working with Bloody Cuts and am constantly amazed and utterly impressed with each new project.

FANGORIA - Issue #322 - Featurette

SADIST ART DESIGNS featured in this month's EVIL DEAD tribute FANGORIA issue.  Such an honor!


England's Gordon Smith contacted me to do a commissioned piece for his upcoming film, STAGNANT.  Having read the script, I was super excited to take on this poster to bring his vision of a deformed and maniacal bride that kills stags, or "bachelors" to life.

FUTURECOP! - Promo Art

Being that I design most of my art while listening to 80s soundtracks, I thought it was only fair if I did a promo piece for UKs masterminds of 80s synth-pop, Futurecop!

Their music literally evokes a certain cinematic experience that seems to lift me away to foreign lands of the unimaginable.  It's as if you're escaping from life's drudgery... all while flying on a winged-unicorn!

Check out one of my favorite songs by them.  Then check out ALL of their stuff!

When the Editor in Chief of the world's largest horror magazine commissions you to do a teaser poster for his latest art-house horror experimental short film, you simply nod yes.  Then you jump and down for a bit.  What a pleasure it was to bring his vision of Victorian Euro-Sleeze Vampirism to life.  In Association with Autonomy Pictures.

On January 29, 2013 the short will be premiered at Times Scare in Times Square, New York.  Drink up!

EASTER SUNDAY - Teaser One-Sheet

A commissioned piece for Jeremy Todd Morehead's upcoming 80s-style horror, Easter Sunday.  "This Year Everyone Will Be Eggsecuted".  I held a little photoshoot using some items I had lying around the house.  Don't ask why I have a mannequin's head lying around my house.  I then superimposed Mr. Morehead's lovely wife's head onto the photo... "The Hunt is On!"

Appearing in the film is MANIAC COP's own, Robert Z'Dar.  Here he is signing copies of some great 11x17s!

Another one for the amazing Frank Sabatella and Sideshow Pictures.  "The House That Cried Blood" is a fun late 70s-esque film about a group of of naive folks who visit a haunted house one Halloween night.  This poster is extra special to me as I got to be on set of the film and witness all the horror and magic of filmmaking.

See the film at Bloody Disgusting here:

This time with his clever little short, "Stay With Me". As always, it was an honor to put togther these neon / black and white one-sheets.   A part of the Splatterfest contest, he and his amazingly talented Texas crew put this this short together in one weekend.   What the hell did you do on your weekend?!
