Feratum 2013: José Mojica Marins (Zé do Caixão/Coffin Joe) Joins Ghoulish Gary As Festival Guest!
Feratum 2013, kicking off in Tlalpujahua, Michoacán on October 3, has an exciting new announcement: José Mojica Marins (aka Zé do Caixão/Coffin Joe) is the festival's guest of honor!
The Brazilian cult filmmaker Mojica Marins made his comeback to cinema five years ago, with the film Embodiment of Evil, and now he'll be in Mexico for the first time!
Gary Pullin (aka Ghoulish Gary) is another guest, also making his first trip to Mexico. Pullin has done great artwork for Rue Morgue Magazine, Mondo Tees and some others, as well as the poster for Twitch's 5th anniversary party! A Ghoulish Gary artwork exhibition is scheduled for the festival: "In the Land of Ghouls and Monsters: The Art of Ghoulish Gary Pullin", at a Tlalpujahua museum (Museo Rayón). Gary is also presenting the documentary Birth of the Living Dead (part of Feratum's official selection), for which he designed the poster. It's worth noting that Rodrigo Gudiño will be in Tlalpujahua with Gary.
Gary Pullin: "I'll be in attendance for the whole festival with guest Rodrigo Gudiño, founder of Rue Morgue Magazine. My wife and I are very much looking forward to meeting horror fans south of the boarder and taking in all of the madness the festival has to offer."
As a curious fact, Gary did some phenomenal artwork inspired in Mojica Marins' comeback for the cover of Rue Morgue #85. This artwork was eventually used by Anchor Bay UK for their Coffin Joe Collection 5-disc box set and now for the "In the Land of Ghouls and Monsters" poster.
Arguably, the box set and the magazine are the perfect items to take to Tlalpujahua if you want an autograph of both Coffin Joe and Ghoulish Gary!
