His stuff generally prints really well, so I can't imagine that this won't look as good or better than the jpeg.

I think both the Creature and Exorcist are some of his best work. The Exorcist is truly disturbing to me so I can't buy it (lol), but it might be the best poster for that film.

And Creature has so many great posters . . . but this one is up there.

I was thinking how to best articulate that. I'm with you on the Exorcist being a tough poster to hang in general just because most of them focus on her in her demon form. I think this one approaches it cleverly and I'd put it up in the ole office for sure.

Yeah, I think it captures the struggle between good and evil so perfectly. It's a really intelligent concept, but it honestly creeps me out more than most anything I've seen before except for some Ortiz pieces. It would freak me the drymount out every time I walked by it in my house.

Connelly's Exorcist still reigns supreme for creepiness.

That's good to hear. I've taken note of his skills in the past, but this is the first time it's been a title I care about.

Hell if I know. I haven't been to any con (zinger redacted).

Yeah his stuff prints great and it seems according to his FB pics of the Exorcist posters it may also be the best print job... but thats D&L for you. I still can't believe it is available.

I think the restricted license is a big factor in why it's still up. In the sense it only ships to a handful of countries.

That sounds about right. Saw some people on Mondo's FB complaining about that. Wonder how many are left. Really looking forward to this 31 days of halloween thing though I think a group horror show at the gallery would have been killer.

Ortiz killed it as usual. That is a great poster for a great film. Not a fan of the omen one.

Oh drymount. That Parasite is great. Wouldn't hang it, but damn is it good.

Also, is that a subtle 'ok' hand sign on the Omen print?
