Halloween Favorites

Since it's Halloween, I have been compiling a list of the staffs' favorite horror movie posters. The guys had multiple favorites, picking both posters for the art's sake and ones where they liked the movie. The girls, well, we struggled a little more with this one. However, I think we have a pretty awesome and spooky range of posters.

Robin's pick is "Screaming Skull" because she liked the movie, plus how can you pass up the offer of a free burial if you die from fright.

Gabe's choice was "The Thing" because it's the only horror movie poster he owns. We also got lucky enough a few months ago to see an original drawing of The Thing by Drew Struzen.

Melissa pick was "The Black Cat." Then after a moments thought also added the one with the aliens whose heads look like Brussels sprouts. John clarified for me that this was a poster for the movie "The Invasion of the Saucer-Men." 

Junior went with a contemporary silkscreen "Frankenstein" by Laurent Durieux.

Aaron's first choice was the "Exorcist" as both one of the best horror movies and best posters, but then he added the original Dracula to the list, too.

Katie's choice was "Rosemary's Baby" and I'm going to add the contemporary silkscreen by New Flesh for it as well.

Chelsea picked a beautiful silkscreen, a variant of Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey's "Dracula".

I'm going to go with an Italian 2 panel of "Tales from the Crypt" because the colors on it are so vibrant.

John has pretty much seen them all, so he had a hard time narrowing it down. But he just got back from Austin a few weeks ago where he got to go to the Mondo gallery and so he picked two from their new exhibit, including " Bride of Frankenstein" by Kevin Tong and "The Mummy" by Laurent Durieux. And just to mix things up a bit, he added Malleus' variant of Tenebrae. 

We hope you enjoy our favorites and have a Happy Halloween!
