Ok, art. I understand. Which is all I can do: Disagree yet understand. I again say that as a fan, I would love to have that piece. As a taylor/mondo fan/halloween watcher/collector—I understand how it can destroy the perception of beauty/perfection to some.

I'm a massive fan as well, which is why I hate to see the artwork trampled on. :wink:
That is so odd to me. Artwork trampled on. I think you're a bigger fan of owning the piece (which is totally fine) than of the film.
Not sure how you came to that conclusion, but you're not correct.

Just a little history - I grew up with Halloween, having watched it dozens of times in the 80's from the time when I was about 10 years old. My first copy was an awful transfer on Betamax. Then came (at that time) the holy grail - the VHS orange widescreen copy. Then DVD, and blah blah. Halloween is my favorite movie of all time.

So no, I am not a bigger fan of owning the piece than the film. But it doesn't take away from the fact that along with the AUS Daybill and the 1-sheet, this print is the best Halloween poster around. So when I see signatures all over it, I don't dig it.

I don't care about that stuff, man. Or rather, I'm sorry for undermining your love for the series. I just think it's a bit much to call something ruined when it might not be to others.

and now that I've typed that, I realize how little I actually care..which happens to me sometimes with varying opinions. What actually matters? Zero. Unless you're the person that buys or doesn't buy it. ..... -_-

Care or not, I was just explaining why your opinion about me is wrong. That's all.

My lady thinks it's hilarious that you can see the wrench when he smashes the window. She thinks it's cheesy and I just informed that it is that time of the year again and I am due for a viewing ....she's not a fan. As awesome as she is, she hates horror movies pre-2000 because she says they aren't scary at all and are super cheesy. Trying to line up Halloween, trick r treat, poltergeist and the exorcist :D


Josh and Leslie which print do you prefer? Reg or var? I prefer reg. btw leslie behind the mask is criminally underrated. drymounting love that movie

I feel the exact opposite as I don't find modern horror all that scary some of it can be pretty hard to watch but none of it scares me like the older classics did. Could be I am much older now though. :D

Both are fantastic prints, but I do prefer the variant because of the orange. Can go wrong with either though!

And I agree about Behind the Mask. The did a Kickstarter to fund the sequel, but it failed to raise the funds. Hopefully someday!

Yes, I was so disappointed when "Before the Mask" failed to reach its Kickstarter goal!

I believe there are a select few that capture the atmosphere of the older ones, but horror movies now really don't hold a candle to the classics. I was born in the early 90s but thankfully my father showed me all the classics, but trying to get people my age to watch something like the original exorcist? Forget it. Especially if it's black and white. How does everyone feel about the Rob Zombie remake of Halloween?

The variant is so much more subtle than the reg, both prints use their colors well (though I'm partial to red). They are both so good that you literally can't go wrong with either.
