Check out this cool Bebop and Rocksteady concept art for TMNT

We can argue back and forth all day over whether or not Johnathan Liebesman's take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a good film or not, but we all seem to universally agree on how terrible everything looked. Regardless of ...

Here's what Nova would've looked like in Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy had a lot of things. Green skinned folks, talking plants and animals, attractive men, and loads of shout outs to the original comics books. What it didn't have, however, was Nova. Nova, or Richard Ride...

Here's some cool Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept art

I really enjoyed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It's smart, cool to look at, and I still want to grunt "AAAAAAAAAPESSSSSSSSS" from time to time. It's got its problems (that I've realized in retrospect), but it's a good film ...

Check out this cool Transformers: Age of Extinction Dinobot art

As bad as Transformers: Age of Extinction is, it has a few saving graces. One of them is the cuddly, yet super spiky looking Dinobots. Since the first trailer, the film had been hyping up the appearance of these fan favorite ...

Here's sweet concept art of Iron Man 3 and The Wolverine

Director Richard Raaphorst reveals new horror projects photo
Director Richard Raaphorst reveals new horror projects
by Hubert Vigilla

At the end of our interview with Richard Raaphorst, the director of Frankenstein's Army, he mentioned two new biological horror projects that he's developing, both of which are conceptually great.

One of them Raaphorst described as follows:

...one is based on Dutch legends in which there are children who are buried in the soil. They come back. Their hands grow above the surface, and the hands are in the shape of mushrooms begging for mercy. And when you eat those mushrooms, those kids are going to haunt your head.

The second project involves scientists tampering with the Higgs boson, also known as the God particle. I'm still a bit hazy on what it is, actually, but if I'm understanding this right, the Higgs boson is supposed to confer mass to all objects in the universe.

After the cut, Raaphorst describes both projects. In the gallery is some concept art that Raaphorst created for both of these films, which are tentatively titled Fungus and Higgs. [Editor's note: As Roscoe pointed out in the comments, the mushroom project is actually Children of the Moor rather than Fungus. I've included concept art from Children of the Moor to reflect this correction.] To view more of Raaphorst's concept art and other work, visit richardraaphorst.com.
