There’s a small sample of Horror Genesis at the bottom of the page, but head on over to Pailler’s website to see the full collection.

What’s interesting is that the main collection does not have An American Werewolf in London, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Critters, Evil Dead, The Grudge, or The Mummy, so perhaps the “Fallen Angels” poster is a glimpse of what’s coming next. Speaking of, Pailler stated on social media that he’s kicking around the thought of turning Horror Genesis into a book – we think that’ a great idea.
