Pocket Monsters a Hit for Celebrities and Horror Fans this Halloween

Montreal, QC- Local crafter and business entrepreneur  Dr. Kyla Sentes has recently become a success in the horror genre for her unique of commemorating her favourite horror villains, and her product is being requested by all kinds of celebrities.

“I’ve been a big fan of the horror genre all my life, but I wanted to make something that horror fans of all ages could enjoy, but didn’t have to hide from guests when they come over. A less terrifying representation so people could enjoy the genre without the blood and guts,” says Sentes, who was recently invited by the Fantasia Film Festival to create custom pocket monsters for John Landis (as part of his lifetime achievement award) and Guillermo del Toro. Landis sent her a thoughtful thank you for her rendition of American Werewolf in London.

Horror film/TV icons James Marsters, Sid Haig and Doug Bradley are all proud owners of their pocket monster counterparts, and Kyla was invited by a Swedish horror film director to create one for his film’s villain.

Says Sentes “I’m thrilled to see how the horror genre has evolved to the point that it’s no longer just talked about at Halloween but all through the year and that my mini contributions have been so well accepted by genre fans and celebrities. I look forward to creating many more customized characters for fans and filmmakers this coming year.”

Kyla’s pocket monsters will be available to the public at the Montreal craft show before Halloween October 22-23 at Foire Artisanale Carnaval D’Halloween 11:00-18:00 at 105 St. Viateur O.
