One of 4 posters I have created for modern Ozploitation filmmaker Daniel Armstrong, all of which feature stories around centred a strong female characters. This one is a wrestling based mutant, zombie film. Charlie an amateur wrestler has to do battle against murderous mutant wrestlers.
I wanted to create a focal point of a sexy bad ass looking Charlie holding an M16 with grenade launcher in a sassy pose (very much in that classic video cover art ‘hero’ vibe). Then bringing in the wrestling angle with the ring and arena lights surround to give people that visual hook. Along with a classic era WWF style title design.
