Our official #VundaHalloweenAthon art that features Freddy, Captain Spaulding, and Sheetar was done by Josh Stifter who is not only an artist but a filmmaker. If you subscribe to his Flush Studios Patreon you can access great behind the scenes content and his short films which could fit many of our themes. He has two feature length films: The Good Exorcist is a comedic horror film made for $7000 under the supervision of Robert Rodriguez available on TromaNOW (perfect for "Blood Baths" or "Elevated Horror of the 2010's" day) or his Hubbie Award winning second feature film Greywood's Plot (perfect for "Black & White" or "Monster Mania" day) a film about friendship, cryptids and making a monster, out now thanks to Terror Films on digital and Tubi.
