Short Bus Creepiness

So dig this horror fans- the first officially released image from Micheal Dougherty's upcoming film Trick 'r Treat! A nice creepy image- who are these kids? what's wrong with them? why is that mask upside down? and why the fuck am I so disturbed by the blackness of the clown girl's eyes?
Ok, so I can give you the answer to the first two questions, but I'm not going to. It's just more fun that way. Mike's constructed a genuinely enjoyable Halloween-themed horror anthology- much in the vein of Creepshow and the early works of Carpenter- and one that should make any true horror fan giggle at the downright deviance of it. It's disturbing, but in a twistedly humorous way that should come as no surprise to anyone who knows Mike, and as a great surprise to anyone who longs for a bit of the old school flavor in their horror.
And for an added treat- here's a few of the boards that go along with this sequence...I'll be sure to put them all on the potfolio site (including some concept art) come October.

watching: Batman
listening to: Bright Eyes
