“Kiss Your Nerves Good-Bye…The Sequel To The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror !”
Incredibly rare and much sought 2015 alternative movie poster for Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead sequel…“Evil Dead II” (Dead By Dawn). What makes this super special is that has been reimagined by the same artist responsible for the original cinema poster from from 1987 – Graham Humphreys. Printed with the approval of Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert it’s a stunning piece of horror artwork, as a much more experienced, Graham Humphreys is given the chance to go back and recreate his original design from twenty-eight years earlier. The composition and subject matter are perfectly suited to this landscape format and the colours just amazing as they pop from the paper. This strictly limited Artist Proof edition is hand-numbered AP 5/30 and signed by the Humphreys. Immediately selling out when launched, this originally rolled, flat-unfolded (as issued) example displays to exceptional effect and represents a truly outstanding and extremely desirable item of collectable horror movie memorabilia with a ‘modern’ twist.

Trivia: The large demonic head Ash battles in the climax of the film, which the crew nicknamed the “rotten applehead”, was too large and cumbersome for the crew to carry back to California, so it was left in North Carolina and soon disappeared. Its whereabouts were unknown for a number of years until it was found in a Halloween haunted house attraction just outside the original shooting location of Wadesboro, North Carolina.…more detail
A superb and eye-catching alternative movie poster by Graham Humphreys’ for the cult dark comedy horror “What We Do in the Shadows”. Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.created the clever idea of a family of vampires living together under the same roof and the struggles they encounter in modern day life. Each vampire housemate bears some resemblance to a past screen vampire – Nosferatu, David (Lost Boys), Dracula (Gary Oldman), Edward (Twilight zone) and Louis fromInterview With the Vampire. And it’s these five who feature on this 2015 Hand-Numbered (#AP 39/40) Artist Proof print that has also been signed by the artist – Graham Humphrey. Presented in excellent unrestored, rolled (as issued) condition with amazingly vibrant colour tones that truly pop from the paper (the photo doesn’t do this justice)it almost appears to be painted. A super-cool piece of cinematic memorabilia and artwork.
Trivia: The hill where the vampires have a run-in with the werewolves is the same hill filmed in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), where Frodo and the hobbits are running from the Black Rider and hiding under the roots of a tree.
