It's a nod to Fairey, obviously. The entire color scheme, layout...all very Obey. Would probably look great on a wall with some Faireys.

Boogie Nights?

I could be way off on my interpretation just what I thought when I first saw it.

Yeah, I actually just realized the "zombies" in the background are actually The Fog lepers. It's a collection of John Carpenter film elements... probably because John Carpenter is this years' Festival of Fear guest of honour.

Good call, didn't know that about Carpenter being the guest of honor. Makes a lot of sense now.

Regular edition is blue with a print run of 200


Pretty sure Justin said the red variant is a run of 50.

Oh and they are glow in the dark.

It looks like Michael Meyers couldnt find a William Shatner mask and had to settle for Ryan Gosling. Poster is still awesome though.

This is just too cool! I love everything John Carpenter did in the 80s and PCC has been lights out this year. Add GID ... :drool:

If there's anyone out there who wants to snag one or both of these for me, I would be grateful. Your cost plus shipping plus some extra for your trouble.
