Curzon Cinemas Midnight Movies Flyer, poster, grindhouse, Sam Raimi, Drag Me to Hell, An American Werewolf in London, John Landis

Here is the next Midnight Movies Flyer.
I did two alternate versions for the Drag Me to Hell as universal wanted to use the main image off there quad poster i originally used one of the movie stills for the old woman.
Rather than just dropping in the imagery I wanted to give it my own twist with a hand painted pulp, trash, old grind house poster style (harping back to Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' roots).
I took the original images tweaked and twisted them then painted over the top and this was the result.



For An American Werewolf in London i wanted to give it a more 80's style to reflect the film.
Originally i did it as a one colour photocopy mash-up style print, but more colour needed so i looked at it more as a sort of scrap book, old newspaper ad. Offsetting the colours adding the aged tape and adding the subtle use news paper text bleeding though the background.


Hope you like.

Dude!
My favourite film, endlessly quotable, funny, sad, scary, and sadly lacking a decent poster to frame for the wall.... until now!
