|The Night of the Hunter Movie Poster|
Phantom City Creative
24" x 36" (Screen Print) - Numbered
$40 - Limited to 170
There's a lot to say about this print, but I'll just start with the most obvious: how menacing does Mitchum look? Those haunted eyes and clasped hands tell you everything you need to know about this guy - stay away, stay the hell away. Phantom City Creative perfectly captured the stylized look of Stanley Cortez and Charles Laughton's expressionistic compositions, ultimately creating something angular, mysterious, and altogether terrifying. Like our villain's switchblade slicing through his own jacket, a faint beam of light cuts through the thick shadows to reveal the hint of an appropriately sinister visage. Also, I'm not 100% sure if this was the artist's intent, but the triangle at the bottom of the frame is very reminiscent of a visual motif that's constantly popping up in the film. I've included a few screenshots from the movie below, but again, this is only a theory of mine. If this was actually what the artist was attempting to do, well, that's pretty amazing and yet another reason why this poster is a must buy.
