Announcing A New Artbook Celebrating John Carpenter’s Halloween

If you’re reading this announcement, you probably know what tomorrow is. You’ve done all the very important decorating inside and outside your home, you’ve carved up a pumpkin and, naturally, posted it all over your social media. You’ve got the best costume that no one will see in person but you. However, it would seem one thing is missing from your amazing Halloween decor this year (no, it isn’t just your friends). Perhaps Printed In Blood can help you find that missing piece to make you the coolest horror nerd in this year’s Halloween Zoom call?

We here at Horror Obsessive not only love this time of year but we LOVE the film series (and John Carpenter!). I’m willing to bet a couple of us will probably be looking to add this beautiful artbook to our collection of horror-related media. In fact, I’m already making space on my own “horror bookshelf” to slot it in. Do not pass up the chance for the limited pre-order copy, the special slipcase edition is TO DIE FOR…
