31 Days of Horror: The Posters of artist Jay Shaw

The Amityville Horror (1979)

The Amityville Horror (1979)

If you’re wondering why most of the posters featured thus far in Deep Fried Movie’s ode to horror film art pre-date the millenium, it’s because the sanctioned release posters for most movies (regardless of genre) have settled into a glut of representational monotony in the last decade.

Which is why I have such enthusiasm for the groundswell of original poster art from contemporary designers like Jay Shaw. More of Shaw’s work can be found here at his website. Tune back in tomorrow when Deep Fried Movies takes a look at the posters of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series.
