Set to infest tinsel town this June, Matt Busch is putting the final touches on his latest series of zombified movie posters. This time, Busch is taking all ten of the new box office cadavers to a magical time in the history of cinema: the 1980s!
Busch comments, “The 80′s were such an awe-inspiring era of movies, plus, I was a child of the late 70′s / 80′s, so there’s nothing I’d like to do more than claw my way through those memories with undead visions.”
Some choice selections from the 80′s made the cut, including an alternate version of STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI. ”Originally, I illustrated the REVENGE teaser poster illustrated by Drew Struzan.” elaborates Busch, “I thought it would be nice to do the regular montage style one sheet, originally illustrated by Kazuhiko Sano. This way, the entire series of posters fits together more cohesively and aesthetically.”
The list of posters to be parodied in the upcoming all-80′s series is as follows:
3 MEN AND A BABY
THE BREAKFAST CLUB
THE DARK CRYSTAL
FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
THE LOST BOYS
RETURN OF THE JEDI
In addition, to help celebrate the all-80′s theme, Hollywood-is-Dead.com will also be releasing its first zombified poster at actual movie poster size! While the existing 13″ x 19″ art prints have been a great size that’s also affordable, the overwhelming demand to have actual movie posters had to be met. First available? The fave-favorite, blood-vomiting, Zombie Wars: The Living Dead Strike Back!
Stay tuned for the madness to spread this June!
