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.
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).
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.
"When someone doesn't show up, the people who wait sometimes tell stories about what might have happened and come to half believe the desertion, the abduction, the accident. Worry is a way to pretend that you have knowledge or control over what you don't--and it surprises me, even in myself, how much we prefer ugly scenarios to the pure unknown. Perhaps fantasy is what you fill up maps with rather than saying that they too contain the unknown."— Rebecca Solnit
