Faux Frankenstein

Artist Jason Edmiston turns in a stunning poster for a movie that never was.

Farm of Frankenstein is one of several faux films in a fun, fictional If They Came from Within: An Alternative History of Canadian Horror Movies, a collection of movies “that didn't get made, couldn't get made and maybe even shouldn't get made... but we'd love to see nonetheless.” The exhibition, curated by Dave Alexander, editor-in-chief of Rue Morgue magazine, premieres at the Fantasia Film Festival on July 20 and runs until the 29th at the prestigious Cinémathèque Québécoise in Montreal.

A who’s who of Canadian and Québécois writers, artists and designers are contributing to this unusual art project, with plans to grow the exhibition as it travels to other cities, adding soundtrack recordings, promotional stills, props and trailers. Hopefully, the project will yield a companion book.
