Description - Hung, Drawn And Executed: The Horror Art of Graham Humphreys by Graham Humphreys

Graham Humphreys' career as a poster artist looms large over horror cinema. From designing the iconic Evil Dead poster to Nightmare on Elm Street and House of a Thousand Corpses, his work is familiar to everyone. It's easy to see why his work grabs the attention of horror fans and filmmakers alike as he continually and systematically sets the bar ever higher in his quest for sheer terror and pure entertainment. With over forty years experience he is one of the few contemporary illustrators using the traditional medium of gouache to paint his images.

'Graham immediately understood the essence of our film and painted an image that ripped up the traditions and threw the movie right in your face. I loved this poster!' - Sam Raimi, director, producer, screenwriter, actor

'...the whole episode, which seemed like a deleted sequence from a 1980s Italian giallo, made a strong impression on me, clearly demonstrating the manic, confrontational power of Graham's work at a time when simply owning some of those titles on VHS could indelibly mark one out as a clear and present danger to orderly, bourgeois society.' - Richard Stanley, director, producer, screenwriter
