RANDOM NONSENSE: MONSTERZERO NJ FAUX POSTER ART- DRACULA vs. BLACULA!

MZNJ_New_RN

When I was a kid in the 70s, this clash of horror movie¬†icons¬†was a film that I wanted to see happen very badly. Obviously as a ten-year-old, I didn’t understand the concept of different studios and all that would need to occur to make such a film a reality, but would loved to have seen such a film actually happen. With revisiting the films of both¬†characters recently, I¬†decided to use my Photoshop skills to do a faux poster rendition, in the 70s style, of what such a film might have been like if Hammer and AIP had collaborated. Enjoy!
