I absolutely love that "The Dead Walk" newspaper from Day of the Dead.

I'd like to find a full size poster replica and hang that up in my house.

Bill Walsh said...

I like the newspaper too, but I think the most striking image is the gas-mask silhouette. Elegant but creepy design.

Though, I gotta say, as always, Tai khun come through big with the air armada of severed hands. You don't see that every day.

You're in luck, 612...

it's on ebay!

How big a geek am I? I actually tried to read the newspaper poster. Now I want to make my own zombie movie just so I can make a poster just like that.

First one looks like it's a Star Wars poster...

And "Knightriders"...I think they stole the idea for an episode of "V.I.P.".

I'm with Walsh,

I love the severed-hands poster. Reminds me of the flock of birds attacking Tippi Hedren....macabre yet symbolically true...

the first one, the star wars-y one is fuckin brilliant! The hands bursting through the wall, Day of the Dead one is really good fun - i'd see that movie! (hang on - i did see that movie)... and the Martin, made in the usa poster is genius (reflecting teh genius that is Martin the movie, too)

I have to agree with everyone else-- that Day Of The Dead poster is all kinds of awesome. THIS is what horror movie art is all about. Hell, I just love Day Of The Dead. Lori Cardille and Joe Pilato "rock my face off," in the inimitable words of Stacie Ponder.

Piper said...

Oh Snap, I forgot that Romero did Knightriders. I've never seen that.

Where's the Creepshow?

matt said...

I vote for the gas mask, if we are voting
