monster squad poster



fittingly, "the monster squad" is october's first friday fright night selection at the colonial theatre!

due to very limited distribution and no VHS release, this movie was completely off my radar when it came out. i only discovered it a few years ago when a great DVD edition came out. i was pleasantly surprised to find a movie unabashedly reflective of the 80's that re-envisioned the classic universal monsters. fun stuff.

i wanted to take a bit of an abstract approach to the poster. i'm hoping fans of the movie will get (and dig) it. not sure how it'll be received by folks who've never seen it. i'm very curious, so let me know...

At first glance it does look like just a shoe print but I got the reference almost right away and it is an awesome concept. I kind of wish that wolfman's jeans were a little more obvious with out detracting from the type and the shoe. Might convey what is going on a little quicker but any one that has ever seen the movie will definitely love it and get it right away. Maybe as little a a slight color shift towards blue on the jeans might do it but regardless it is a killer poster as always. Nicely done sir.
