Horror Movies Reimagined As “Goosebumps” Book Covers
If It Were Stine is a Tumblr blog run by cover designer Theodore Holmstead-Scott and blurb writer Jude Deluca that reimagines horror movies as book covers from the popular “Goosebumps” series by R.L. Stine.
If you were born anytime before the year 1980 these words probably won’t mean much to you. But if you weren’t, we have a question for you - what was your first horror memory?
Perhaps it was watching ‘The Thing’ on late night television or a grainy VHS copy of ‘Zombi 2’ at a friend’s house. Maybe even sneaking into a cinema to see the local premiere of ‘Scream’.
That’s good, but we want you to stretch your mind back further – to a time when horror was not about ditzy teenagers being sliced and diced by chainsaw-wielding maniacs, but when the word horror evoked imagery of evil ventriloquist dolls and possessed Halloween masks. We are, of course, talking about Goosebumps here.
Whether it was the dripping neon slime, the terrifyingly gaudy cover illustrations or the sheer spine-tingling horror of the stories themselves – there’s no doubt that R.L. Stine’s classic series has shaped a generation of horror lovers.
So what happens when the two worlds of horror collide? When the terror of ‘The Exorcist’ or ‘The Blair Witch Project’ meets the bad puns and outrageous titles of our beloved book series? …That’s where we come in.
♕ Dragons are capable of forming strong attachments to humans who raise them. They have a reasonably high level of animal intelligence, and can be trained to serve as battlemounts and receive vocal commands. Dragons are said to be capricious in nature.
The Targaryens used them to conquer and forge the Seven Kingdoms. Over the course of one hundred and fifty years the Targaryens rode their dragons as symbol of power. They built the Dragonpit in King’s Landing to raise and house their dragons and at one time had at least nineteen dragons.
According to legend, a dragon may be tamed by sounding the Dragon Horn. The dragonlords of old sounded such horns, before the Doom devoured them.
Following his very public departure from directing Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” Edgar Wright now looks ready to move on as he is in talks to direct “Baby Driver” for Working Title Films.
The plot details are vague other than it would be in the vein of his Cornetto Trilogy he made with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Wright will pen the script with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing with Nira Park.
