MARTYRS

£75 M

26.5″ x 38.5″

ROLLED, SINGLE SIDED MINT, UNUSED. BY GHOULISH GARY PULLIN. Martyrs is the kind of horror film that I would call a “game changer”. It is a modern day masterpiece, pulls no punches and was the first horror film in a long time that truly disturbed me and left me gasping for air a few times. It takes you places, gets under your skin and stays there. I wanted to create a poster that played up the surgical aspect of the film and Martyr theme – a woman reborn in the Jesus Christ pose on a surgical cross is mysteriously fully enlightened. The creature in the basement, which is what you see in the background, is pure b-movie, scary fun, in an otherwise sobering, straight laced horror film. I felt the poster design should feel very European, a bit inspired by the ghastly artwork from the films of Lucio Fulci or Dario Argento. A disturbing movie should have a disturbing poster. I hope fans of the film like it. Gary Pullin
