This Undead Monday, we take a comprehensive look at the awe-inspiring Seminal Film Series of Dark Hall Mansion with the release of a cool new entry in the series as well as the arrival of the first print for the much-anticipated The Twilight Zone series courtesy of artist Tom Whalen. 



Easily one of the most influential TV series ever, there is without a shadow of a doubt that The Twilight Zone have went on to inspire an entire generation of creators both in and out of the genre. Which explains our excitement upon learning that Dark Hall Mansion will be kicking off a series of prints paying homage to iconic episodes of Rod Sterling's sci-fi/horror television anthology series as a follow-up to their popular Universal’s Classic Monsters series

Similar to the Universal’s Classic Monsters series, each piece of the 10-print series will be conjured by artist Tom Whalen. With the first piece unveiled and set to be available online from 19th August, we take a first look at the much-anticipated series with Whalen's take on "Eye of the Beholder".

Here's a brief excerpts from the official press release:


PRNewswire/­Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is thrilled and honored to reveal its latest officially licensed limited edition project and release: “The Twilight Zone.”

Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release a 10-print “The Twilight Zone” series focused on key classic episodes of the legendary series that redefined television and set a creative bar by which decades of writers and filmmakers still measure themselves today. The importance of “The Twilight Zone” and its unparalleled creative output and unflinching mirror on the individual and society, particularly in an era when this was simply not done, cannot be underscored. Its impact on television, films, screenwriters, directors, authors, the comics industry, and creative artists within all fields still resonates and informs every genre to this day.

Dark Hall Mansion’s officially licensed 10-print limited edition subscription screenprint series goes on sale Tuesday, August 19th, and will feature 10 classic “The Twilight Zone” episodes rendered by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen. The 10-print “The Twilight Zone” editions will be offered as a subscription print series with an exclusive worldwide run of only 230 Standard edition subscriptions and 70 Variant edition subscriptions. Each of the 10 individual prints will focus on one classic “The Twilight Zone” episode, each rendered in artist Tom Whalen’s inimitable and dynamic style, each measuring 18″ x 24″ and each fully screen printed. Prints will include classic episodes like “Eye of the Beholder,” “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” “Living Doll,” and “Nick of Time,” plus surprises along the way. The series will be fittingly lead off by an appropriately unsettling and slightly creepy “The Twilight Zone” episode that happens to be one of Tom’s (and his Dad’s) personal favorites, “Eye of the Beholder.”

A disturbing classic, the episode’s final imagery is arresting and unforgettable even to contemporary audiences. Tom Whalen has created a piece for “Eye of the Beholder” that is deliberate and meticulously crafted, from its “The Twilight Zone” ‘eye’ element, to its “Beholder” font, a font
that Tom noted specifically echoes a studied association with the word “beautiful,” the print’s composition is at once grounded in the reality of the episode while still subtly dissolving into an ethereal upper plane that fans will instantly recognize as Tom’s nod to the starry sky from “The Twilight Zone’s” famous opening credit sequences. The episode’s climactic scene of a patient’s terrified attempt at escaping her monstrous doctors is made all the more jarring by Tom’s expressionistic hallway and visual suggestion that one false step and her feet will simply slide into that
very land of shadow and substance.


For worldwide fans of the “Twilight Zone,” this is a very limited release
as only 230 Standard edition subscription allocations will be available-worldwide-with an even more limited allocation of just 70 Variant subscriptions available worldwide. The Standard edition subscription-which will include all 10 prints-will price at $450 and the Variant edition subscription-also including all 10 prints-and printed with striking metallic ink highlights underscoring the print series’ vintage TV aesthetic will price at $650. “The Twilight Zone” prints will be issued throughout
2014-15 per artist Tom Whalen’s scheduling, and know Tom’s very next “The Twilight Zone” print will feature a gentle little girl and her very unique and disturbing doll, “Talky Tina.”

"Talky Tina"? Sign me up already.

Apart from the first unveiling of the print for The Twilight Zone, Whalen's first print for Dark Hall Mansion's Seminal Film Series has also been revealed as a new take on "War of the Worlds". Here's a quick peek at both versions of the print.
