My second entry for Seventh Sanctum's B-movie Bonanza contest: [link]

Skin Reaper (2006, USA)

In a small suburb, creatures from an ancient legend comes out of their hiding to prey on the unsuspecting humans.

It is now up to a few teenagers to find out the secret behind the creatures and destroy them, but how do you destroy a creature whose only weakness seems to draw it nearer?


Stocks used:

Visit these people! They're totally awsome!

If you see your or somone elses stock in this picture and I haven't mentioned you or them in this section, send me a message and I will put you in the credits.


Used Photoshop for composition, mostly playing around with Blending-options and feel. Tried to keep the details to a minimum as opposed to my other entry. [link] Not really satisfied with the title-font, but what the heck.

Used Fusion 5.2 for some of the textures, but mainly for grading. It helps to remove the plastic/fake feel of it by sort of smearing out the colours and destroying the blacks and whites. It gives you a more watered out feeling.

Wouldn't a weakness that draws someone closer be awesome? I mean, if kryptonite attracted superman, it would be so easy to have him fall into your diabolical krypto-trap.

Heheh, either way, this is a really good contest peice.

Depends on how weak they become I guess :P The weakness doesn't necessarily have to turn one into roast-beef, only slow one down. Say, like turning Mr Flying-thingy from Pitch Black into Mr Vorhees. All right, maybe not THAT slow :P Good thinking, though.

And thank you.

I love the boy, he's adorable. (though I don't know if that's what you were going for...)

Actually that's a girl :P :iconsaligiastock:

In a horror-film it's a better thing to use a girl as the main character as the audience connects easier with women than men on screen.

True, true. I'm sorry I thought your girl was a guy. It's a very pretty guy, though.

Wow nice... man that actually sounds like it could be a pretty cool movie.

Actually I'm working on a script for this one. Slooowly that is. Horror is really difficult to write.

WOW is that cool. Feels like a real poster!

Good luck in the contest, though I don't think you need it ;)

Well it's not only about the picture being perty, you know. There are lots of variables in these kinds of contests. :P

I like your Space Rip-thingy on your page. Almost so that I would want to have a go at it myself.
