Chances are you know Wilson's work, even if you don’t recognize his name. A longtime contributor to both Playboy, The New Yorker, National Lampoon (among many other magazines),Wilson is known for cartoons that reveal a twisted, if not downright macabre, sense of humor. Cannibalism and other atrocities are commonplace in Wilson’s single-panel drawings, which are populated by people and monsters rendered in his signature doughy style that makes it seem as if the characters’ flesh is melting off their bones. The movie has several examples of Wilson's work abounding with fears of all kinds - Childhood nightmares, ecological disasters, the horrors of war, and existential dread. Filmmaker Steven-Charles Jaffe's (producer of several films including Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Ghost, Strange Days, Near Dark) documentary GAHAN WILSON: BORN DEAD, STILL WEIRD - winner of the Best Documentary award at the Comic-Con international film festival also features Stephen Colbert, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo Del Toro, Hugh Hefner, Stan Lee, Randy Newman, Mike Mignola… is now available in the UK at BLINKBOX: http://www.blinkbox.com/movies/gahan-wi ... ad-(61959), and Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/13656.
