Zombies keep popping up in popular culture; books, movies, tv series.. and now, in movie posters from classic and cult films by Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Rob Reiner and more. If you're not familiar with Matt Busch and his re-imagined movie poster collection, Hollywood Is Dead, you're about to see such lovable characters as Holly GoLightly and E.T. rendered as cataract-wearing, flesh-eating, blood thirsty monsters.
above: details from Breakfast At Tiffany's and E.T. with the Busch treatment.
Busch has faithfully recreated the painting style of each original movie poster, as opposed to altering them digitally in Photoshop.
