We previously wrote about a fantastic contest from the folks at Alternative Movie Posters, (AMP), where artists can enter to design a limited edition DVD cover for the modern horror classic Maniac which stars Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder.#1
Since this is right in artist Midnight Marauder’s wheelhouse it only made sense that he would enter. What is impressive, besides the art itself, is that he has come up with SEVERAL, exceptional entries!
Here is what Midnight Marauder has to say about the project.
I have been quite enamored with Alexandre Aja’s work and involvement with film since his very beginning. Being French like Aja and having the same influences in film and horror; I felt a certain connection to the material and subject matters he brought to the screen. You see it’s rare to see someone like him making horror pictures; French people are not big horror film buffs. High Tension his first big film, felt like Maniac. All the hard core gore in that film, is simply magical.#3
AMP : Alternative Movie Posters is throwing a contest with Metrodome. I wanted to tackle the film with as little use of Stills as possible; Relying only on outside imagery. Vivid colors and simplicity of typography was the key. The Brilliant Soundtrack was a major influence on the entire series. I know AMP are looking for one design. But I couldn’t help myself in making just one design. I had so much fun with all of these.#4
I absolutely love the entire series. Take a look at them below and then let us know which one is your favorite in the comments section. (Simply put what numbers you like.)
