20th Century Fox and MGM are reissuing 19 Halloween favorites on Blu-ray for a limited time this fall, with new cover art from acclaimed artist Orlando Arocena.
Among the titles will be From Hell, the Hughes Brothers' 2001 adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell.
Utilizing vibrant colors, the Mexican-Cuban-American artist's "contemporary street fusion" style is evocative of pop culture appropriation of sugar skulls, one of the most well-known icons of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.
From Hell is one of a number of movies in the collection that is not explicitly a horror movie; it centers on a conspiracy theory tying the British royals to the Jack the Ripper murders. While most of the movies in the collection are more traditional slasher and monster films, other offbeat titles like Black Swan and Young Frankenstein make the cut as well.
The reissued discs will be available for sale beginning on September 12. Fans who purchase any of the films at Walmart beginning on September 19 will also receive an exclusive coloring book featuring all 19 of Arocena’s designs.
