I love how they released it on Friday the 13th! You know it had to be planned.

This print looks awesome in person. Especially with the artist signing it. My wife and I each got one. Totally stoked.

Great poster and a worthy entry into the series. Much like Frankenstein's entry, it has a very classic feel. The paper and color choices really capture the adventure mood of the film. The minimal layout works really well for this one. Can't wait to get one framed up. Shame Mondo released it at SDCC. Feels like a bitch slap to be honest. Will have to slap back. :P

This would be an ISO for me if it wasnt for the artist tag/stamp (or at least thats what i think it is) right in the middle of the image.

Would have loved a metallic silver & black inks variant to have been made available to allow it match my other prints in the series.

Movie was also in B&W and monochrome color invokes it more, imo...

I still can't see what is going on with the girl's head! It look like we should be able to see her face but I just get hair and... well not much else! Are here any close up shots of this area?

She's got a mask and tank on.

Nice, rubberneck. I thought about doing a similar mock up (it looks good). I like the color scheme it has though. Very old school and adventure feeling, which I like.
