As mentioned in our Best New Horror Movies on Netflix post, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake is an excellent film. While it didn’t get much of a release in the US, it’s hitting theaters in the UK on April 17.
UK distributor Metrodome commissioned the great Graham Humphreys to design a limited edition poster for the film. The result is a stunning reminder of when movie artwork was created by hand rather than a computer.
A theatrical/VHS Evil Dead 2 promotional cover featuring a quote from The Daily Mirror. The artwork is different and modified compared to the Evil Dead 2 UK Quad poster, such as the blood around the cellar and Ash covered with blood. You can compare with the quad poster here.
Feast your eyes on the retro poster for The Editor, the latest from Astron-6’s Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy (Father’s Day). The incredible design comes courtesy of the great Graham Humphreys.
The tribute to/parody of giallo films will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. It stars Paz de la Huerta (Nurse 3D), Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede), Tristan Risk (American Mary) and the one and only Udo Kier (Suspiria).
Rey Ciso was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist Giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.
While a number of ideas where thrown around for a third Dr. Phibes film, unfortunately, none of them got to see the light of day. Thanks to Strange Kids Club, we get to see “The Bride of Dr. Phibes” in the latest offering from their “What If?” sequel poster series:
Based on an unproduced script for a sequel to “Dr. Phibes Rises Again”, this latest print was brought to life by reknowned illustrator and designer Graham Humphreys, the artist responsible for such classic horror movie posters as “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, “Evil Dead” and “The Pack (La Meute)”!
Synopsis: “When Victoria’s body is stolen by a Satanic society called the Institute for Psychic Phenomena, Phibes returns in a bloody quest to recover her.”
I love clever promotional items for movies. Even if the film isn’t good, there’s something neat about owning a product that
was never available for sale, only given away to a select few. They’re even more intriguing when the marketing team thinks outside the box. (I admit I
was quite jealous when several top journalists recently received
replicas of the Poltergeist remake’s clown doll.)
I own a handful of
promo items; perhaps one day I’ll write a post about them.
But first, allow me to share the story about the newest addition to my
