Heads Up: Christopher Cox's "Nosferatu" Movie Posters

When people think of vampires, they immediately go to Dracula. And why not? Stoker's book kicked the vampire genre into overdrive, but in my estimation Count Dracula is much less terrifying than the angular Orlok. It's kind of funny, because while F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram's bestseller, it's actually way creepier than Hollywood's authorized take on tale. Alright, so it's not hah hah funny. Christopher Cox, the artist behind these prints, brings the film's expressionistic use of shadow to life and really captures Orlok's rat-like face in all its grotesque grandeur. Also, I'm a sucker for a decent foreign language poster and the German Nosferatu print is a beaut!

Nosferatu Movie Poster (GID Regular)
Christopher Cox (Changethethought Studios)
24" x 36" (3 Color Screen Print) - Numbered
$40 - Limited to 170

Nosferatu Movie Poster (GID German Variant)
Christopher Cox (Changethethought Studios)
24" x 36" (3 Color Screen Print) - Numbered
$60 - Limited to 70

Both of these posters are somehow still available for purchase through the Changethethought Studios storefront. The regular print costs $40 and is limited to 170, while the German variant is limited to 70 and costs $60. I'm not too familiar with Changethethought Studios or artist Christopher Cox, but I can tell you that I'm now a huge fan of the guy and can't wait to see what he does next!
