Human skin. Severed limbs. Hammers. Bones. Chainsaws. There’s no denying that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its terrifying character, Leatherface, have helped shape horror iconography. To celebrate Texas Chainsaw 3D, the latest film in the series and first that’s a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic, Lionsgate and Vice are celebrating that iconography by creating an online gallery of eye-catching art.
The Gallery of Horrors: Original Art & Video Inspired by Texas Chainsaw 3D is now online at Vice.com and with it comes an opportunity to see some killer art (pun intended) combining the ideas of Leatherface, Texas, 3D and much more. After the jump, check our 12 favorite posters from the gallery. Read More »

If there’s a genre that the guys at Mondo love to make posters for, it’s horror movies. And one film they’d never made a poster for, until today that is, was one of the greatest horror movies of all time: William Friedken‘s The Exorcist. Then, just to mix an old classic with one in the making, they’ve also revealed a poster for Drew Goddard‘s The Cabin in the Woods.
Both posters are by the fantastic Phantom City Creative and you can see them in their full glory, as well as find out when to buy them, after the jump. Read More »

Hey! Remember the ’80s? Of course you do! Movies like The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Gremlins, Back to the Future, Krull and The Monster Squad got worn out in your VHS player as your penchant for film fandom either developed or blossomed. Everyone has their favorite films from the period and, fairly regularly, we feature outstanding art to back that statement up. Today is no different. Todd Brown of Twitch Film recently programmed a series of classic 1980s kids films in Toronto and had Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative design limited edition posters for the screenings. Sounds pretty standard, right? Wrong. Erickson’s prints were so limited that they never went on sale to the general public.
After wading through some legal red tape (meaning the removal of all proper names) Twitch and Phantom City Creative (who recently did that awesome Freaks & Geeks/Undeclared piece) can now legally sell all of these beautiful tributes to some of your favorite films of the Eighties. All the films mentioned above are represented along with The Last Starfighter, Time Bandits and The Dark Crystal. After the jump, check them all out and find out where you can purchase them.
