Starburst Magazine
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Mark Reihill | Share link:

The theme for the latest issue of Starburst Magazine is ‘Everyone’s entitled to one good scare…’

I love horrors, psychological thrillers – any film that evokes a scare or reaction – from anything in the Hammer Horror vault and cult classics, to modern day masterpieces like Babadook and Pan’s Labyrinth… So you can imagine my delight when this brief came in!

I wanted to illustrate a collection of some of the characters responsible for the best scares in cinema (some of which terrorised me as a kid). Here are some shots of the artwork, including a close up of The Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth and Sadako from The Ring! With Sadako, I made it look like she’s inside a TV, (scan lines / glitch effect…) Man, that movie freaked me out…

Enjoy, if you dare!
