Welcome to Part IV of my tribute to hollywood (and hollywood horror) legend Roger Corman. I am creating an 8 poster series in tribute to Corman’s early-1960’s “Poe Cycle,” where he brought classic stories from the EA Poe cannon to film. You can read Part I here, with my actual article on Corman and view Posters I and II there as well. Part II can be found here. ANNND… Part III is here.
Again, a big THANK YOU to Mr. Corman for all he has done for film and horror-lovers everywhere.
Without further delay… Poster VII ::
With this post, I also wanted to share this amazing illustration from 1919 capturing the Poe story that the above film was based on. The artist is the great Harry Clarke. I’ll be featuring his horror work in an upcoming post. Stunning stuff. I fear posting it with my work is a huge mistake as my work pales so much in comparison. HOWEVER, it’s a nice juxtaposition.
Just one poster away from completing the full tribute to Mr. Corman’s “Poe Cycle.” Look for the final installment coming up.
