The world’s creepiest adult coloring book is getting a sequel.
Released by IDW Publishing last year, Alan Robert‘s adult coloring book “The Beauty of Horror” quickly shot to the top of Amazon’s bestseller list and caught the attention of many mainstream outlets. Now, with “The Beauty of Horror 2: Ghouliana’s Creepatorium, Another GOREgeous Coloring Book” arriving this September, we have a look at the book’s trailer directed by none other than Robert Hall (Laid to Rest)!
Director of Photography was Brandon Trost (Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, Ghost Rider 2, Crank: High Voltage). It was written and produced by Robert and Nick Principe (American Muscle, Chromeskull). VFX by Josh Petrino (Contracted, Hatchet III). The voice narration features Jane Dashow (“Law and Order”, “Homeland”). EP by IDW Publishing.
The new book, due out September 12 (pre-order it here), features over 80 pages of original artwork depicting a variety of increasingly terrifying scenes and patterns. With a beautifully chilling red foiled cover and high-quality paper that will ensure the pools of blood you color don’t leak through the pages, Robert and IDW have come together to present a deluxe coloring experience.
Inside the pages of the follow-up book, undead girl Ghouliana mischievously attempts to trick budding colorists into unleashing a deadly spell. You’ll have to try and find the ingredients she’s sprinkled throughout Robert’s intricate pen and ink illustrations before it’s too late.
Robert promises an even creepier coloring book:
The wild success of The Beauty of Horror coloring book didn’t completely take me by surprise, because I knew from the beginning that there were tons of like-minded horror fans out there who were looking to join in on the coloring-craze fun, but never found a book that spoke to them. Now that the book has found its audience and has developed a large fan-base, I’m even more excited to expand on Ghouliana’s world. I definitely amped up the creep factor on this one, big-time!
