Horror Artist Marc Schoenbach warns the dangers of Halloween with faux vintage ads


As I’m sure many of you remember, there’s a great moment in HALLOWEEN II (1981) where a young boy named Gary arrives at the hospital with a bloody mouth (a particularly sharp apple, we presume). It’s ghastly and cruel, and removed from the goings on of Michael Myers & Co., reminds us of the scary world out there, bogeyman or no.

Horror artist Marc Schoenbach (who’s handled Fango covers) aims to again recall that mischievous, dangerous air surrounding Halloween with a pair of two faux public service posters. One would like us to be wary of the infamous razor apple, while the other is afraid of what happens when the eyesight of poor children is obstructed by their masks. There seems to be a larger promotional purpose here as Sidehow Pics is mentioned on the bottom, and that is NY-based production company headed by BLOOD NIGHT director Frank Sabatella.

Until we know what’s up however, these, coupled with chilly mornings here on the East Coast, are a lovely welcome of the spooky season.
