There are a few films that REALLY impacted us when we were growing up. Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”, Spielberg’s “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” and Kubrick’s “The Shining” to name a few. One such film is being immortalized by one of our favorite artists as part of Dark Hall Mansion’s Seminal Film Series.
Original 1953 film poster
For the third offering in their officially licensed, Seminal Film Series, Dark Hall Mansion has called upon the mega-talents of Tom Whalen to produce something special for the 1953 sic-fi classic by H.G. Wells, “The War of the Worlds.” Wells’ radio broadcast of War of the Worlds caused widespread panic when it came out and after looking at Tom’s work, if THIS is how people saw it in their mind when they listened to it on the radio, then I can see why folks lost their minds. Imagine, if you will massive, metallic, arachnid-like machines walking the streets, firing devastating beams, destroying buildings and killing anything that stood in their path. Our weapons can’t stop them and we are seemingly doomed to certain obliteration.
One thing to remember is that if you have pre-ordered Dark Hall Mansion & Tom Whalen’s 10-print “THE TWILIGHT ZONE” series, you ALREADY have one of these reserved for you! You have NO obligation to buy it BUT…..it’s yours if you want it. Check out the official press release from Dark Hall Mansion and then IMMEDIATELY go order your copy today.
