When it comes to producing alternative movie posters based on true cult cinema, Grey Matter Art know their stuff. Having emerged on the scene this year during what seems to be a screen print poster boom, Grey Matter Art have focused on lining up licenses for great properties interpreted by very talented artists.
For their next release Grey Matter Art have teamed up with Kilian Eng for the granddaddy of cult cinema genre’s, the Zombie movie, with an officially licensed poster for George Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead.
Recently I covered a selection of awesome T-Shirt sets put out by Fright Rags, a company that specialises in designing detailed horror tees. Well word through the internet grape-vine (or in this case via Daily Dead) is they have done it again with a new set coming soon. This set focuses on the great George Romero flick Dawn of the Dead. These will be limited editions like their other sets. Here is a quote from Fright Rags themselves which explains what is going on.
“These exclusive Day of the Dead items will be available starting promptly at 10:00am EST Friday, January 17 through 10:00am EST Monday, January 27. As soon as the clock strikes 10am EST on Monday, these items will no longer be available for pre-order. Please note that this is Eastern Standard Time, so check your time zone as these times may be earlier or later, depending on where you live.”
They have a promo advert for this set on their website now which breaks down what is involved with the set. Spoiler alert it’s a heck of a lot!
Limited Edition T-Shirt. Full Colour Print by Justin Osbourn. Printed on Super Soft 4.5 oz. Sizes From Small to 3x Large.
Jar of “Deadrock” From Wampum Mines. 11×17 Poster Full Colour Offset Print On 80# Silk Cover Stock.
Collectors Box. Limited to 500.
The usual array of great items are included in this set (the sticker been a personal favourite of mine reminding me of my childhood days). As a novelty item I love the rocks taken from the actual mines. Personally, I feel it would have been cooler if they had included a different image with the poster (maybe from the original VHS/DVD cover perhaps), but this is a just a personal view and certainly does not take away from the great pieces of work included in the box.
Maybe the reason they did not do this is because it is not only this box set they are releasing. They also have another great print and t-shirt designed by the ever brilliant Ghoulish Gary Pullin coming out focusing on Bub, everyone’s favourite Walkman listening, pistol shooting, humanised zombie. There will also be another t-shirt by Jeff Zornow.
