Jeremy Raymer’s next mural is going to be a real nightmare.

The artist will paint a 2,500-square-foot tribute to Pittsburgh native Tom Savini, a special effects legend known for his work on “Friday the 13th,” “Creepshow” and “Dawn of the Dead.”

The Godfather of Gore will grace the side of a house on Almond Way in Lawrenceville, overlooking the TRYP Hotel parking lot. Raymer is starting the project next week and expects it to take seven to 10 days to complete.

Since 2016, Raymer has painted 80 murals throughout the city, transforming blank spaces into masterpieces. On the North Side, you can see portraits of Pittsburgh Pirate Roberto Clemente and rapper Mac Miller. Homer Simpson is reaching for a box of donuts in Lawrenceville and there’s a wild scene on the side of Cinderlands Warehouse the Strip District.

There’s no cost to the property owner and commercial liability insurance is provided.

Does being under quarantine make you want to scream? Go on a self-guided Raymer Art Tour! Don’t forget to wear a (goalie) mask.
