Horror Star Chart - Glow in the Dark Limited Edition
2 colour (red and glow in the dark) screen print on 170gsm laminated paper
H68 x W68cm
The Horror Star Chart is based on the night sky over Berlin Zoological Gardens on 4th March, 1922 during the premier of F.W. Murnau’s silent vampire film 'Nosferatu', which is recognised as a masterpiece of cinema, inspiring film makers and directors for generations to come (including Hitchcock).
The star chart features the films (and a few of our favourite TV shows) that are culturally significant to the genre and plays homage to the actors, directors, producers, graphic artists, authors and writers whose work has been pivotal to the enduring popularity of Horror.
The 135 titles featured include those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance and a few personal favourites including: early silent films (The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Nosferatu and The Phantom Of The Opera), Universal Monsters from the 30's featuring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy), Hammer classics (Dracula and Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter), forerunners of the slasher sub genre in the 60's (Peeping Tom and Psycho), supernatural thrillers of the 70's (The Exorcist, The Omen, Carrie), video ‘nasties’ vilified by the media in the 80’s (Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Evil Dead) through to the recent Zombie revival (28 Days Later).
The glow in the dark 'blood' red print perfectly evokes the spirit of Horror and might even have you hiding behind your sofa.
