Thanks in no small part to the many limited edition posters, collector’s edition Blu-rays, and must-own vinyl soundtracks constantly being released by companies like Mondo and Scream Factory, fan-made horror movie art has become more popular than ever before in recent years. Those releases are often adorned with stunning visuals that essentially beg us fans to bust out our credit cards, and they’ve helped to usher in what I can only describe as a golden age for seriously badass alternate horror movie art.
None more badass, I assure you, than the art we’re showing off today.
Wisconsin-based artist Christopher Shy specializes in fantasy and sci-fi artwork that is quite unlike the output of any other artist. Shy, who founded Studio Ronin in 1994, has worked for companies like Marvel, Dark Horse Comics, and Lionsgate, illustrating countless books and graphic novels, and he gained cred here in the horror community when he whipped up the concept art for Marcus Nispel’s Friday the 13th remake. It’s not hard to see why Nispel chose him to help redesign Jason Voorhees, because Shy has a knack for giving bold new life to horror favorites.
By now you’ve seen countless posters for movies like Alien, Ghostbusters, and The Thing, but we can promise that you have NEVER seen art like this before. Ready to have your mind blown? Check out a gallery of Christopher Shy’s gorgeous movie posters below!
