Halloween poster

The original slasher flick.

After designing Zombieland, I wanted to take things back a few steps and simplify everything. This is one of the times I broke my rule of not using the original poster colors, but if you're doing a poster for a movie called Halloween, how can you NOT go with black and orange?

UPDATE: Changed the font and removed some studio logos.

My fav horror movie. Awesome! i love it!

Yeah, this one is a classic. I honestly haven't seen any of the Halloween movies past part 3 so I have no idea what kind of silly directions this franchise ended up going in. So glad you dig it. Thanks!

You´re right, the rest of the saga is bullshit, well i love the Rob Zombie´s remake, but the original is simple GREAT!

Well, I had a sketch done and then found yours and it uses some similar elements. Decided they were separate enough to go for it, plus I was having a hard time coming up with a new idea anyway. Oh, and yours is really good. Maybe I should have led with that, hehe.

I can't tell if we're both clever or just really uncreative. Heh. As it turns out, I think I ultimately like your layout better.

He took his eyes off it for one second to go grab a knife and came back to find that she stole it. I think he's more sad than angry.
