Heads Up: Oliver Barrett's "Cujo II" Movie Poster

I last wrote about Strange Kids Club's fantastic "what if" poster series in mid-October. And here we are, not even a full month later, with yet another killer print. Following Nathan Milliner's inspired The Burning 2 artwork, SKC hooked up with artist Oliver Barrett to celebrate the rabid, drool-covered sequel that never was. That's right, I'm talking about Cujo. More specifically, I'm talking about Cujo II. I mean, who wouldn't want to see a film with a tagline like, "More Dogs. More Rabies." Right? I rest my case. While there's a decent amount to highlight here, my favorite element in the poster has to be the eyeball in the dog's mouth. No contest. Here's what Oliver had to say about designing this print:
"Cujo appealed to me because it's one of those few horror films that still holds up to this day. While a rabid dog wreaking havoc on a small family is pretty outlandish, I could put myself in that situation and be terrified of a giant [bloodthirsty] St. Bernard. A sequel would have been equally outlandish, so that helped me make the decision to put together this bunch of rabid pups."
I can relate. Granted, chances of my Shih Tzu - Terrier mix going all "Cujo" on me anytime soon are slightly more outlandish than Cujo II becoming a reality.

I don't know about you, but all of this killer canine stuff is reminding I need to revisit the Lance Henriksen-starring Man's Best Friend.
