  1. Fucking insane. Loves it.

  2. WOW!

  3. This movie haunted me as a kid, just the whole atmosphere of it, and this captures it perfectly.

  4. If Todd drew each pixel he’s a masochist. There are tools in photoshop that allow you to mirror certain parts of your image like he did here. Must’ve taken forever to get one half of this thing drawn up though.
    Either way this poster is nothing short of inspired. If it looks half as good up close as I imagine it does it’ll find a permanent place on my wall that’s for sure.
    Excellent work Mr. Slater

  5. The only problem is, I don’t know which one to get.

  6. Cool! I just got a blue one, which is the one I wanted. Good luck everyone!

  7. +1 here. Tried for the variant, failed. Nabbed the blue one, which I think I like better anyway.

  8. Got one of each. I think these will be impressive in person–I’ve never seen a 24×36 from Slater.

  9. Love These, Grats to everyone that got one!

  10. Missed the variant…..but was lucky enough to get a blue one on the way back around.

  11. I’m having trouble landing these prints… Anybody have any tips, do I refresh after clicking add to cart?

  12. Damn, this is great

  13. Of course it’s great, it’s SLATER.

  14. Went for the Variant, was a bit slow on the ball, but grabbed the regular instead. Should be a good one to see up close for sure!

  15. Loved that movie, these are awesome!

  16. Killer poster. Still have not seen this movie, but it greatly motivates me to do so.
