A horror comedy and was the first design i did for a full on comedy so I wanted to make the poster visually fun and we decided to go for the classic fantasy art style In the style of Boris Vallejo (National Lampoons Vacation) and John Bolton (Army of Darkness) to create something epic and completely outlandish and OTT.
The humour comes out of depicting Steve (zombie) completely against character as a totally ripped heroic zombie groom holding his ample-busted bride in one hand while thrusting the BRAINSSSSS aloft, contrasting those clichés with a expression that screams PANIC I’M A MILD MANNERED HR MANAGER NOT A ZOMBIE. Tina the bride is actually more in control as the pushy bride in the film.
I was then also able to bringing out the rest of the characters personalities so we see Sarah the sister (bottom right) not amused by the whole situation, Craig best friend (bottom left) beer drinking frat boy, Penelope (top left) preppy zombie hunter and Max (top right) bad tempered zombie hunter. On title design I had been dying to create a big logo set in cracked stone and this was the opportunity for it.
