Edvard Munch's The Scream: The Movie!

You've seen the painting, now watch the film! And what's more, it's a musical! Sebastian Cosor has filled in the backstory for the oft stolen expressionist painting with this surreal little tableau. Here's how Munch described the inspiration for the painting in 1892:

I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.


Prog rock will do that to you. What with the Battleship movie coming out, I could see Hollywood strip-mining the art world for blockbusters. Think of the possibilities! Whistler's Mother in 3D, starring Paul Walker as "The Chair!" For more trippy animated art, see Salvador Dalí's "Destino."

Love how Cosor appropriated Pink Floyd's Great Gig in the Sky. Perfect for the mood.
