The work will be released as a litho printed book, and also showcased over one week at an exhibition in London, beginning on Halloween eve, let the Creep-fest begin!

“It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”

New Rule collective presents, Horror Show, an illustrated tribute to Classic and B-Movie Horror Cinema! Focused on a collection of our favourite (and most ludicrous) villains and creatures, from throughout history! 

At New Rule we have a soft spot for all things ghoulish and gore, and so wanted to pay our last respects to a genre that has inspired so much fear and stomach churning over the years, and what better time to do so that on All Hallows Eve, October 31st.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Movies

With such a huge range of movies & monsters to choose from, we nailed it down to a truly bloodcurdling cluster of 30 that would make Lucifer himself weak at the knees!

We chose a mix of classic nightmare dwellers, and some maybe lesser-known B-moive creeps to in an attempt to give recognition to both sides of the genre, and give you even more reasons to lay awake at night!

Each participant has been allocated their own personal movie from which to create their interpretation, the full list of movies included in the project are as follows:

The Thing // Nightmare On Elm Street // Braindead // Toxic Avenger // Nosferatu // Lost Boys // IT // Phantasm // Basket Case // Night Of The Creeps // Hellraiser // The Fly // Lords Of Salem // The Mist // American Werewolf In London //         Evil Dead // Dawn Of The Dead // Frankenstein // Texas Chainsaw Massacre // The Hills Have Eyes // Hausu // Mars Attacks! // Critters // Alien // The Wolfman // Demons // Return Of The Living Dead // Gremlins // Creature From The Black Lagoon // Wasp Woman // Slither //

THE BOOK

The book will be A5 in size, perfect bound and will contain 52 pages of full colour illustrations, using a custom ink of Pantone 802U for the green. Every piece of artwork included in the book is a new design, created specially for this project. Above is a selection of full and cropped pieces from the book, to give a preview of the work included. We don't want to unleash all of the creeps just yet, and have saved some of the best and gruesome to only be shown in the book and show!

FIRST 100 ltd edition

The first run of 100 books we are printing will be a limited edition. Each will be hand numbered and include a cover design only to be used on the initial run. If we surpass the first 100, an alternative cover will be used, but all of the content will be exactly the same.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

PRINTS

We will be printing and selling various art prints of the work included in the project, and have decided to opt for the methods of Giclee printing and Screen printing. All prints will be limited editions of 50, and once sold will not be printed again, so grab one while you can!

Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high end archival quality paper to create prints of superior quality, light fastness and stability.

Put simply, it is the highest quality digital printing method, on the highest quality paper, and it will not fade or alter in colour over time.

Screen printing is a traditional method of printing artwork and illustrations that prints one colour at a time using a mesh screen stencil. The two colours used in the set colour palette when printed via screen printing, mix to create the third, darker colour.

EXHIBITION

The culmination of this project is a week-long, exhibition in the Brick Lane area of East London. Running from HALLOWEEN October 31st - November 5th at 5th Base gallery, 23 Heneage street, E1 7LJFree to all!

The exhibition will be a platform to display the work included in the book, along with additional physical work designed by the artists. Ranging from original paintings, sculptures, screen prints, t-shirts and taxidermy, the show gives the opportunity for artists to create unique pieces of work, and for the public to come and experience the whole collection in a curated environment.

Prints and physical work will be for sale exclusively at the show at affordable prices and in limited numbers.

Smallprint

This is, of course, a fan-made project, which has no affiliation with anything that would make it "official." with regards to the original movies referenced in the work. All work is created as a tribute to a much-loved genre, paying respect to some of the greatest and mist gruesome movies ever made.

Any extra funds that surpass the goal will go towards the exhibition costs, further runs of the book, and future New Rule projects.

Risks and challenges

Very low!
Our content is already finished, and the gallery is booked. Backers are essentailly just pre-ordering a book, and some limited edition goodies. If any problems occur, they will be in the production phase.
The exhibition begins in 5 weeks time, which is ample to have everything printed and finished.
