This post is not a commentary on the merit of remakes, nor is it a commentary on the merits of the respective genres these movies are part of. I’m simply responding to the design of these “standees” (yes, that’s what they’re called).
Anyone who was both terrified and exhilarated by the original film, is likely to get goosebumps seeing this at the end of a dimly lit corridor at the movie theater. With only two simple layers and a light, it is every bit as chillingly iconic as it should be.
Also highly referential to the imagery of the original, but with a design by the year book committee from Elmhurst Junior High School. Thanks for bringing those soon-to-be memories to life, kids.
