This multimedia project is a celebration of science fiction and 80’s style horror, as well as being a new spin on an old twist. The violence is over the top, the humor is ridiculous, the nudity is celebrated and the mood as frightening as a horror-themed Holiday story can be. Working together to create the visuals for this book, the creators commissioned a modeling cast of the highest caliber to create these stylized characters and unique visual style.
- COVER A
FROSTY: ‘Twas the Night Before the Apocalypse is a holiday themed tale from Dead of Night Entertainment and Iron Dead Studios. The titular snowman regales the patrons of his favorite bar, MacGuffin’s, the story of a massive yuletide invasion of Earth by an industrious alliance of aliens. These invaders have passed judgment on the human race, and thus seek to exterminate the “offending” species from the planet and remodel the entire Earth into a trans-galactic resort.
Held accountable for the shortcomings of her people, a lone human named Eve is brought aboard the flagship of the Neptunian Alien Queen to bear witness to the apocalypse. As she works desperately to challenge the perception of humanity to a council of the most powerful leaders in the solar system, a daring elf named Herbie is sent on a dangerous mission to save Eve, and in doing so, save the world.
FROSTY: ‘Twas the Night Before the Apocalypse is the first book in Dead of Night Entertainment’s flagship FROSTY series, featuring Bobby Ray Akers Jr.’s freakish snowman as the Master of Ceremonies. This installment sets the format and tone for the series, with each successive book taking a classic holiday theme and completely turning it into some bizarre and weird. In this case, the timeless Christmas poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, by Clement Clark Moore.
The book was co-created by Bobby Ray Akers Jr. and Dennis M. Willman in homage to the great science fiction films and stories of the ‘50s and ‘60s. The book was written by Dennis M. Willman, with additional artwork from Kyle Willman.
The book features characters based on a modeling cast, including film composer Harry Manfredini (“Friday the 13th”) and the “Queen of the B Movies” icon Julie Strain (“Heavy Metal,” “Vampirella”). A full list of modeling cast is available on their website.
