To celebrate the release of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, in UK cinemas from April 17th, we're offering 2 winners copies of acclaimed poster designer Graham Humphrey's UK exclusive quad (from a signed strictly limited run of 50), courtesy of Metrodome Distribution.
Based on a terrifying true story, director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) makes his striking feature debut with this shrewd remake of the seventies horror of the same name, inspired by the unsolved murder spree that took place in the American border town of Texarkana in 1946.
Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up 65 years after a masked serial killer terrorised the small town. Texarkana’s quiet streets are plagued by a masked maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc decades before. Is it a copycat crime? Has somebody seen the original film too many times, or is it something even more sinister?
A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching the murderer in this riveting collaboration between the producers of the hit series American Horror Story and the blockbuster Paranormal Activity franchise.
Graham Humphreys is a freelance illustrator and poster designer who has been working within the horror industry for more than thirty years, perhaps best remembered for his iconic artwork for the original UK releases of The Evil Dead and A Nightmare on Elm Street as well as his original artwork for FrightFest.
Still working in a traditional paint medium, Graham continues to work within the genre he loves. http://grahamhumphreys.com/vault.html
Halloween this year will see the publication of a book of Graham's horror art, entitled 'Graham Humphreys: Drawing Blood'. The launch will be supported by an exhibition at The Proud Gallery, London.
