More Boris

Boris Vallejo is one the artists whose work keeps popping up here, as you may have already noticed. No other artist comes readily to mind that influenced the scene so heavily during the 80's. His work has been frequently used as inspiration, for countless video covers and movie posters, though, not all of them went about it as blandly as in this mash-up and blend.

Thanks go to Videotopsy for this heineous British VHS cover to one of Amando de Ossori's Blind Dead movies.
Honestly I'm not sure if I'm more annoyed with the bad quality of the reproduction or more amused with how completly pointless and misleading the used illustration is.

Art comparison

There’s probably a shortage of poses going round, but I prefer to entertain the idea that in a shocking twist-end we learn that Liam Neeson’s Unknown character turns out to be Alex Pettyfer’s father: “I am your father, number four!”

I'm a fan of the first Sisterhood movie, liked it better than I did the book (which is not meant to say that the novel was pants *giggle*, I just had higher expectations of it after watching the movie).

It might be just me, but I like how here one poster mirrors the other as if they came from the same place of imagination. Being both tied to the werewolf myth they even might. Now, if only the idea of "twilight" director Hardwicke at the helm didn't curb my enthusiasm for Red Riding Hood so much...
BTW: Make sure to check out the spanish version of Red Riding Hood I added to one of my older posts.

What's on their wall...

Now, now, what's this we see hanging at the back of the room, doubtless left there by his much younger self, when Roger Cobb (William Katt) opens in his mother's now demon infested House the door behind which a raging flurry of, uhm, flying garden tools lies in waiting?
Why, it's the poster to the original The Blob (again).
How ... flattering I guess, a suggestion this must be to make for a demon mommy monster from hell.
