So, I love this movie poster. It tells you an incredible amount about the movie without spilling the beans, but it's beautifully designed for balance, terror, and and the uncanny pushing through into reality.
It turns out the poster is by Matthew Peak, who happens to be the son of legendary illustrator Bob Peak - but this was his first movie poster at age 25. Amazing!
It does remind me of other artists who were bursting on the scene at the time, but that's not a criticism. If it falls on a continuum of the Dave McKean/ Bill Sienkiewicz/ Drew Struzan, well... okay then.
Anyway - Jamie alerted me she'd never seen A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and 'tis the season, so we watched it. But you've seen this movie, and I wrote it up a year or two ago, so. Anyway.
I will say - I really appreciate how tight this movie is. No fat on it at all. And you can see immediately how and why they wanted a sequel to expand on the concept.
