NEKROMANTIK 1 & 2 JIGSAW PUZZLES from Messed Up Puzzles
Romance is dead! Messed Up Puzzles and Cult Epics bring you the first ever series of jigsaw puzzles for necrophiles. NEKROMANTIK and NEKROMANTIK 2: THE RETURN OF THE LOVING DEAD join the Messed Up family as Nos. 7 and 8 respectively. Each one features 1000 corpse-riding pieces cut from the original art by Andreas Marschall.
For the uninitiated, NEKROMANTIK concerns the ménage a trois between Rob, his girlfriend, and the corpse he brings home from his job cleaning up after grisly accidents. This doesn’t end as well as one might think. In NEKROMANTIK 2, a beautiful, grave-digging nurse explores her necrophilia and has to choose between the living and the dead with regard to her love life. Banned in Germany upon their release, Jörg Buttgereit’s NEKROMANTIK films can now be proudly assembled in your home without being in violation of German penal code section 131.
Like this summer’s MANIAC release, this line of puzzles is a treasure hunt. 1 in 50 of each title is signed by director Jörg Buttgereit (randomly distributed), only to be revealed once the puzzle has been assembled. And those who love the dead enough to order NEKROMANTIK + NEKROMANTIK 2 bundles will receive a Limited Edition Exclusive: All bundled orders will ship with a never before seen glossy print of Buttgereit by photographer Jan Willem Steenmeijer. Pre-Order season kicks off for Halloween, with puzzles shipping in time for the Holidays. This is a limited run of only 300 of each title, only 50 of those available thru Cult Epics website, so order now before they’re back in the grave.
Created by horror fans and jigsaw puzzle junkies, MESSED UP PUZZLES makes NSFW boxes of DIY horror art featuring 1000 pieces of Just Plain Wrong; gouged from horror, grindhouse and exploitation classics.
Artist Shane Grammer Creates Tribute to Carrie Fisher with Art Installation in Endor!
Artist of Hope Shane Grammer spent Monday, October 21st installing a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art at California’s Avenue of the Giants, which was a filming location for the planet Endor in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, in tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, in honor of her birthday.
“I wanted to create a beautiful art installation that celebrated Carrie Fisher and her beloved Star Wars character Princess Leia. My daughter and I thought it would be awesome to create an art installation at a location that one of the Star Wars films was shot at. With much thought, Endor the lush, forest home of the Ewok species in Return of the Jedi would be so cool. So we landed on Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt County where the scenes from Endor were filmed. I thought Princess Leia was so beautiful in her Ewok village dress that I new that had to be the final subject.”
Art installation process:
“My daughter and I drove up from Los Angeles and we had one full day to scout out locations, set up the art installation, paint and finish, and photo document the finished art. Honestly, I wish I had one full extra day just to scout out locations. For my fellow Star Wars nerds: no, this art installation was not in the exact location that some of the scenes were filmed. But after scouting out 3 to 4 different locations we settled on this area because it was so accessible.
After trucking in all of our equipment we set up the wiring between two trees to hold up the plexi glass. The painting took me about four hours to finish. We spent a good hour and a half shooting photos and video footage. It was definitely a full day process. I do have to say that I was extremely happy with how the plexi glass disappeared into the surroundings! That was pretty amazing!”
