Commemorative 40th Anniversary Poster Already Sold Out

New Flesh Prints are were selling these amazing Exorcist posters by artist N.E. commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the iconic horror film. Sorry fans, I caught wind of this late as it got lost in the Halloween shuffle. No word yet on a possible second run of these prints but I’ll be keeping my ear to the ground.

Culture website Crome Yellow featured the artwork and posted some direct quotes from the artist:

About a year ago I was commissioned to create a poster to commemorate the movie The Exorcist. The 40th anniversary was coming up and it was going to be a nice thing to celebrate the film. The Exorcist, while being one of the scariest films of all time, is ultimately about a priest’s crisis of faith, guilt, and ability to fight and a very personal spiritual battle. I tried to convey this emotion and intensity with contrast and oppressive shadows in the illustration. By using a more stark composition, I hope to achieve a singular or at least striking image. In the end, the print was approved and given the go ahead to be printed by the film’s director William Friedkin. I was floored when he also generously offered to sign the variant run.
