The indie film is like the blood that courses through the veins of the horror genre. Every big time horror personality started making little indie flicks (some of which have become classics) so that's why we pay them so much attention around these parts. You never know where the next Romero or Carpenter will come from. That being said one flick we've been keeping an eye is is The Night Shift and now that the movie has wrapped -- it's poster time!
The Night Shift is a supernatural-adventure-comedy about Rue Morgan, the undead night watchman at Pinewood Oaks Cemetery. Rue, along with his buddy Herb, a limbless corpse, spends his nights trying to keep the cemetery’s cantankerous residents in, and his days dreaming of a date with hard-nosed day-shifter, Claire. It’s an okay afterlife until a scourge of supernatural occurrences leaves Rue not only watching the cemetery, but also watching his back!

The Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art features a series of arresting images from medication ads that depict (I assume) depression, paranoia, anxiety and schizophrenia, but also bliss. Surrealism seems to be the preferred visual style for conveying mental states all around the world, although abstraction, psychedelia, conventional illustration, sculpture and noirish photography are also represented here. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/poster-gallery?cid=35The Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art features a series of arresting images from... more

Since the dawn of Last Thursday, there have been crappy fan-made posters by people who really want to see Kristen Bell and The Tenth Doctor in Christopher Nolan's third Batman film.
But, like anything remotely related to comics and photoshop, if you want the best, you just have to be a /co/mrade.
The only problem with browsing /co/ is that we have no idea who this artist really is, nor can we credit him/her/it. Just know, person, that we salute your attempt at honoring the previous posters of Nolan's Batman.
Here we have a vague allusion to Black Mask. It follows the Nolan poster trend of three simple, yet ambiguous words that could allude to a deeper meaning. And do.
You may wonder what the answer is. Luckily, it's a right under the question. Since the dawn of Last Thursday, there have been crappy fan-made posters by people... more
If you thought video game adaptions were crummy when we did them, just get a load of this poster for a Japanese version.
Twitch has the synopsis and the full poster for Tekken, which makes us yearn for the days when an adaptation only needed Bob Hoskins, a few million dollars and a whole lot of blow for Dennis Hopper.
Set in 2039, the film promises non-stop high flying action as the greatest fighters from around the world come to compete in the last and greatest sporting event of all time, the Fist Tournament. After World Wars destroy much of civilization as we know it, the remaining territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations the mightiest of which is Tekken. In order to keep the masses down, Tekken sponsors the Iron Fist Tournament in which fighters compete to the death for ultimate glory and receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth.
It's also from the writer of the Spawn film and director of Anacondas and Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home. What problems?

Our friends at Dangerbird Records created the Pablove Foundation in memory of co-founder Jeff Castelaz's son Pablo, who died earlier this year. The foundation supports work for pediatric cancer and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, and they're wrapping up an auction on eBay that has some amazing stuff for a great cause.
There are three rare Silversun Pickups items: a signed poster from the benefit concert they headlined, a rare and signed vinyl copy of Carnavas and one of Swoon. Plus a set visit with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan, a bike ride with Lance Armstrong in Texas, and my personal favorite for sheer awesomeness -- Butch Vig will produce your band's song, just like he has for Green Day, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage.
Go check out the auction now, and bid fast. Our friends at Dangerbird Records created the Pablove Foundation in memory of... more
Many anti-smoking ads in the past are rather gruesome with rotten body parts that terrified people. Those messages are straight forward in showing the final consequences if continue to smoke. Now these ads have gone into a different approach where they are creative and inspiring to look at. In your opinion, which is a more effective method?

Politics home highlights the two (badly designed) campaign posters for budget day by the Conservatives and the Labour Party.
The slogans are, "Boy George - He wouldn't know where to start" on the Labour poster and "£857.5bn debt - A future fare for all" on the Conservative poster.

Remarkable WWF poster campaign against “Global Warming”
From the blog: "In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for “mobile cinema” operators in Ghana to travel from town to town and village to village creating temporary cinemas. The touring film group would create a theatre by hooking up a TV and VCR onto a portable generator and playing the films for the people to see.
In order to promote these showings, artists were hired to paint large posters of the films (usually on used canvas flour sacks). The artists were given the artistic freedom to paint the posters as they desired - often adding elements that weren’t in the actual films, or without even having seen the movie."From the blog: "In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for... more
