ALTERNATE MOVIE POSTERS & FAN ART FOR JOHN CARPENTER FILMS
First things first, I love the hell out of late 70’s and 80’s John Carpenter movies, the 90’s to the present day less so, but his classic movies are perfect fodder for graphic designers & illustrators to get truly creative.
Always in the top 10 horror films of all time and arguably his most acclaimed & iconic movie, the official posters are pretty simple and we have some awesome minimal alternate Halloween posters too.
This is a Halloween print I would definitely have on my wall if I had a wall and if my wife would allow it, hence she won’t but if we ever get divorced this is mine. Its by Ken Taylor and you can purchase this and more of his awesome work here.

Nathan Thomas Milliner
This is just a beautiful piece of dvd art by comic artist Nathan Thomas Milliner, he has also done work for Nightmare on Elm Street, Day of the Dead and The Howling. You can check out all his awesome work on his site at www.rebelrouserart.com
Official Halloween Poster This is iconic original poster for Halloween from the days before ensemble posters like Scream and Halloween H20 or whatever it was called
Probably the best movie ever set is snow, probably his most tense movie with one of the best ambiguous ending in movie history. The Thing gives a lot of creative scope for designers to get their fingers into.
Assault on Precinct 13
Probably my favourite John Carpenter theme tune, Assault on Precinct 13 doesn’t really have the iconic characters as his other movies but the premise still has plenty of scope for some imaginative illustrations
Big Trouble in Little China
Escape from New York
One of John Carpenters most iconic movies thanks to the mass of hipsters wearing ‘obey’ t-shirts. I have probably watched this more than any other Carpenter movie. Its definitely Rowdy Roddy Pipers greatest movie. There are hundreds of fan made alternate posters for They Live so we cherry picked the best so far
