eighties horror you might have missed

Last week I wrote about the amazing poster for Chopping Mall (1986) and a little bit about the artist behind it, Corey Wolfe. Corey was actively involved in creating artwork for movie posters and VHS covers for various film companies during the eighties. He also painted the original (non-photographic) poster for Re-animator (1985). In our first interview here at Man is the Warmest Place to Hide, Corey talks about how the Chopping Mall poster came about and gives us a glimpse into what it was like to be a poster artist at that time.

The poster for Squirm (shown in a horizontal version above) was created by Drew Struzan, who would go on to do posters for The Thing, Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Muppets and Indiana Jones. In that same year he also did posters for Food of the Gods and Tentacles.
