Product Review: An American Werewolf In London “Slaughtered Lamb” Pub Signs

I previously announced the birth of the Slaughtered Lamb Pub Signs inspired by the pub sign in An American Werewolf In London by artist Jon Smith. He was kind enough to send me one to review for you guys. These signs really are amazing to say the very least.

Each of the signs are signed and numbered by hand. They measure an impressive 17″ by 23″ on 1/2″ plywood. The signs are screen printed with 6 colors including metallic gold and silver. They are printed on both sides. The colors are fantastic. The metallic really jumps off of the dark back ground. There is a subtle glitter to the moon and the face of the werewolf. Each selected color compliments each other beautifully. The flip side of the sign is black with just “keep off the moors” written across it in a blood red color. 

The artwork is phenomenal. They are just like the pub signs in the film with one change that I think only made them better. The basic wolf head featured on the sign in the film has been replaced by a replica of the werewolf’s head. This only adds to the overall appeal of the sign, making it more of a must have for fans of An American Werewolf In London.

The craftsmanship of the signs is out of this world. Jon drilled, carved and sanded each piece himself. The edges are smooth and there are no patches that feel rough across the front or the back. He is even kind enough to give you the hooks to hang it with, which are high quality and do not at all feel flimsy.

Jon is selling these amazing signs for only $100. Not a bad deal for a limited edition print that is no only incredible, but is printed on wood instead of paper insuring it will last longer. Not to mention, if you have a bar in your home, how awesome would it be to have this piece hanging on display?

Overall, I have ti recommend these signs to any horror art collector. They are beautiful, durable and unique. My only complaint would be that they are limited to only 50, so if you want one of these bad boys for your collection, you better jump on it. You can purchase these signs along with more of Jon’s amazing work at SmithBellCraft.bigcartel.com

I was gifted number 13 of 50 and below is a short gallery of the piece. Pictures really do not do it justice, you have to see these signs in person to really see how fantastic they are.

New Artwork For Adam Green’s Digging Up the Marrow

Adam Green shocked audiences with his Hatchet series, and now Holliston Nation and the Hatchet Army can rejoice because he is back with a brand new film, Digging Up the Marrow. The film is set for release in 2015, but no exact date has been given. It has received high praise in the film festival circuit, and now Image Entertainment has acquired distribution rights in the US. Along with that great news, new artwork, posters and stills have been released for your viewing pleasure.

Digging Up the Marrow was written and directed by ultimate horror fan, Adam Green. The film stars Ray Wise (RoboCop), Adam Green (Holliston), Will Barratt (Frozen), Kane Hodder (Hatchet) and Corri English (Unrest).

Much like Hatchet, Digging Up the Marrow is a whole new monster and unlike anything else before it.


A documentary exploring genre based monster art takes an odd turn when the filmmakers are contacted by a man who claims he can prove that monsters are indeed real.

Below is a small sampling of the new artwork and still from the film.

Looking at the new stills and artwork, this is shaping up to be one impressive film.
