Horror Movies Reimagined As “Goosebumps” Book Covers

If It Were Stine is a Tumblr blog run by cover designer Theodore Holmstead-Scott and blurb writer Jude Deluca that reimagines horror movies as book covers from the popular “Goosebumps” series by R.L. Stine. 
If you were born anytime before the year 1980 these words probably won’t mean much to you. But if you weren’t, we have a question for you - what was your first horror memory?  Perhaps it was watching ‘The Thing’ on late night television or a grainy VHS copy of ‘Zombi 2’ at a friend’s house.  Maybe even sneaking into a cinema to see the local premiere of ‘Scream’.  That’s good, but we want you to stretch your mind back further – to a time when horror was not about ditzy teenagers being sliced and diced by chainsaw-wielding maniacs, but when the word horror evoked imagery of evil ventriloquist dolls and possessed Halloween masks. We are, of course, talking about Goosebumps here.  Whether it was the dripping neon slime, the terrifyingly gaudy cover illustrations or the sheer spine-tingling horror of the stories themselves – there’s no doubt that R.L. Stine’s classic series has shaped a generation of horror lovers.  So what happens when the two worlds of horror collide? When the terror of ‘The Exorcist’ or ‘The Blair Witch Project’ meets the bad puns and outrageous titles of our beloved book series? …That’s where we come in.

dichotomization:

It almost looks like a glamor shot magazines like Face or advertisers like United Colors of Benetton often throws your way. Her blonde hair looked so soft, her manicured fingernails so red, her glistening bracelet and handbag so readily beside, the red cross aide so solicitous in bending over her that you can almost feel like it has been staged. The woman was an actress named Adela Legarreta Rivas, but she was actually hit by a car and killed on Mexico City’s Avenida Chapultepec in 1979.

She was draped across a fallen pole, her arm hanging like a rag doll’s around it, the bridge of her perfect nose intersected by a single line of blood. It seems as if Edgar Allen Poe, he who elevated deaths of beautiful women into sublime art and said such death is “the most poetical topic in the world”, had taken this photo, but the man who captured this image was Enrique Metinides. Metinides, whose photos often looked like stills from pulp graphic novels and film noirs, is the most accomplished photographer for the Mexican version of tabloid press, the nota roja. As its name (bloody news) suggests, nota roja covers not celebrity scandals, but death and destruction: car crashes, fires, shootouts, suicides, etc.

Jeffrey Dahmer’s A++ beach body~

“I guess what I meant is that you are better off doing nothing than doing something badly. But the problem is that bad writers tend to have the self-confidence, while the good ones tend to have self-doubt. So the bad writers tend to go on and on writing crap and giving as many readings as possible to sparse audiences. These sparse audiences consist mostly of other bad writers waiting their turn to go on, to get up there and let it out in the next hour, the next week, the next month, the next sometime. The feeling at these readings is murderous, airless, anti-life. When failures gather together in an attempt at self-congratulation, it only leads to a deeper and more, abiding failure. The crowd is the gathering place of the weakest; true creation is a solitary act.”
— Charles Bokowski
