The poster design for the 2018 Arrow Video FrightFest has been unveiled. In keeping with previous years, it’s the work of the legendary Graham Humphreys, whose artwork has graced film posters, video cases, books and albums for years.
Fittingly, the new design pays homage to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein… or the Modern Prometheus, which is 200 years old this year. Graham explained the importance and relevance of the idea:
“In the same way that Frankenstein gave life to his monster, horror films stimulate our imagination and give form to ideas that otherwise dare not leave the shadows”, he commented. “The painting shows our familiar host enjoying a fresh jolt...as do we - the audience - each year at FrightFest. In the background, a new entity emerges through the doorway... a new sponsor... Arrow Video!”
See if you can spot a few other classic references in there too!
Arrow Video FrightFest takes place at Cineworld Leicester Square and The Prince Charles Cinema, London between Thursday, August 23rd and Monday, August 27th. Tickets and line-up details will be announced soon.
