Fernando Fro Reza's "Mother's Day" Movie Poster

The gents at Skuzzles are at it again in their quest to bring us more deliciously schlocky Troma goodness, this time in the form of a beautifully crafted Mother's Day screen print by artist Fernando Fro Reza. Behold!

Mother's Day Movie Poster
Fernando Fro Reza (Fro Design Co)
18" x 24" - Numbered
$32 - Limited to 75

I really dig this poster for two main reasons. First and foremost, it's a great looking print. That much is obvious, but more specifically, Fernando's incredibly classy artwork serves as strangely perfect counterpoint to the low budget hillbilly horror fest that is Mother's Day. Up until now, Skuzzles has mainly worked with artists who I feel are perfect at capturing the gonzo insanity that lies at the heart of most Troma productions, but by commissioning Fro and utilizing his cleaner, more minimalist approach to design, a sort of cognitive dissonance occurs that makes the work even creepier and more disturbing than it may have been in the hands of another artist. Second, it's a Fernando Fro Reza screen print! I know that may not seem like much, but the vast majority of his work is in giclée form, and while there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, in my mind, a screen print feels just a bit more unique and handcrafted. It's a brilliant poster and I'd love to see more like it!

Fernando Fro Reza's Mother's Day movie poster will be available tomorrow (5/4) through Skuzzle's site at a random time. The poster measures 18" x 24", will cost $32, and is limited to an edition of 75. To get the drop on the poster drop be sure to follow @skuzzlescan on Twitter and visit their Facebook page. To see and purchase more of Fernando's artwork, be sure to visit, the Fro Design Co Store, and follow him on Twitter @frodesignco. Watch out for Queenie!
