If this one doesn’t scare you… you’re already dead!”

Only 50 days to Halloween!

As Halloween creeps its way closer TVTA sneaks in two Japanese Chirashi movie posters for the cult classic horror franchise Phantasm. Enjoy!

Did we mention Halloween is one of TVTA’s favourite annual events?   

Look out for our next special Halloween post!

    YES! Halloween is approaching. It’s a big fave of mine, too.

    I remember watching the first Phantasm on video, rented from the local, dodgy corner video store near my house. Don’t remember too much of it but those silver balls freaked me out!
    What are your top 3 movies to watch at Halloween?

                Night of the Demon is the 1950’s version, its a really atmospheric film. I think in the states it was called Curse of the Demon. Great film, well worth checking out. Carpenter’s original Halloween film is a must see as well. Even though I’ve seen it loads of times it still makes me jump LOL 🙂

        My wife is more of a horror fan than me but I always like seeing the visuals for posters, etc. We tend to watch the various Halloweens, Lost Boys, The Thing, Poltergeist and I have a soft spot for Critters. lol

              That is so cool! Bet that was some experience. I had the pleasure of meeting Carmine’s younger brother Vinny at a concert once when he played for Dio and we chatted drums for a short while. A gent. You must let me know what other films you’ve designed for. Now I’ll go back to the trailer and check out the costumes.
