Regular readers of Rhino’s Horror should be very familiar with artist Laz Marquez as his amazing work has been featured on here plenty of times. We’ve seen a lot of great Evil Dead posters popping up all over the internet so it was only a matter of time before Marquez took his artistic vision and went to work on a poster for the upcoming Fede Alvarez directed remake — and how happy we are that he did because it’s simply striking.
I spoke with Marquez about what his inspiration behind the design was and he said, “I wanted to capture the iconic elements of the film while focusing on the horror one would feel by being overcome by an entity outside of themselves. The image of a fearful eye, crying, with the iris/logo overtaking that was something I wanted to come through. The cabin was always secondary to me, as the design implies. It was always the violation of the deadites onto another person that intrigued me.”
