While most people know him for his horror, it’s not the only work he does. Some other notable non-horror movies of his are Escape From New York, Dark Star, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, and more.

Halloween turned intone of the most profitable independent films of all time, terrifying audiences time and time again with killer Michael Myers. Halloween becoming such a success paved the way for other big slashers such as Friday the 13th in 1980 and Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984.

Artist of the Month: Paul Acker

Paul Acker has been described many times as the master of horror when it comes to tattooing. He specializes in realistic horror themed tattoos, and does an amazing job of it.He owns The Séance Tattoo Parlour in Bensalem, PA.

Paul has been tattooing since December of 2000. As a kid he loved Tales from the Crypt and fangoria, which developed into a love of horror as he grew up. When doing his horror themed work, he focuses on the lighting within the tattoo, much like an actual horror movie does, to give the piece depth and contrast. Here are some of my favorites of his.
