Lovecraftian monstrosities await... caught up with Mortis Rex writer/director Peter Briggs at the American Film Market and grabbed even more exclusive artwork and some interesting words from the man himself...

"I've been working solidly the last month with our creature designer, Paul Mendoza, and our intention's to portray onscreen the baddest, nastiest, Lovecraftian-level monstrosity you've ever seen. If you're a fanboy, you'll know Paul's work...he sculpted Wayne Barlowe's "Decurion" for Sideshow a while back, and the guy's really a pocket genius. I've never seen anything like our creature, onscreen, ever. Period. I zap sketches to Paul, and he blasts finished renderings back over the internet, and then I scribble and Photoshop over them, and zap them back. I've had a vision in my head about what the thing should look like since I started writing "Mortis", but right now we're about 80% there, and our Big Chap just keeps looking scarier and weirder every time my email goes "ping". He's an extremely visually complex creation. He'd eat "Hellboy's" Ogdru Jahad for breakfast."
