Even without seeing the film, this fine-detailed painting immediately draws you in. The simplicity of the color palette along with its tilted, off-center layout was strikingly unique for it’s time and immediately memorable. The bold contrast between the over-saturated blue against the spotlit figure gives the piece a lot of depth, too. Check out the emphasized “V” and the “A” of the Evil Dead logo… they reinforce the arm positions of the victim, adding an even more peculiar balance between the two visual elements. I have to admit that it wasn’t until today, while rehashing these posters, that I noticed the quote up top was from the master of horror himself, Mr. Stephen King.
