From it’s humble start this August of 2011, Red River Theatres Xtreme Friday Night Film Series has officially carried over into it’s fourth month.Facilites Manager Barry Steelman took a risk with this kind of programming but his film choices have been on point, showcasing some the best independent genre films in the world. All in your backyard NH, where no other theater would touch these titles outside of Boston. It’s been a pleasure to create these posters and I hope you will join me on the 25th for Rare Exports, only in Concord at NH’s premiere indy theater.
This thing just won’t quit! What started as a one time voyage into b-movie waters has now extended into October with the latest four films in the Xtreme Friday Night Film Series. Red River Theatres Facilities Manager Barry Steelman has done a superb job again with his selections here. I’ve seen John Woo’s Red Cliff and the excellent Korean “monster movie” The Host, but I’m very intriqued about the buzz behind Bellflower and Point Blank. a super tight French genre thriller. I think this poster might be my favorite of the three I’ve designed. Bellflower is running TONIGHT, but you can catch the rest at NH’s finest indie non-profit theater every friday this month for a paltry 7 bucks and they serve beer and wine. It’s a no brainer.
Well it’s official. Red River Theatre‘s Xtreme Friday Night Film series has been a great success. Facilities manager Barry Steelman announced before the screening of 13 Assassins that the series will run throughout the month of September. I’d like to think my poster played some small part in that but hey, with a linup of Hobo With a Shotgun,Rubber,13 Assassins and Stakeland how could it NOT be a success? Another great thing about this is I get to do another poster for the next 5 titles.! (fist pump) Here’s what’s in store for the next month:
The Troll Hunter:
Dario Argento’s Susperia is one of my favorite films of all time, a masterpiece of the horror genre as well as the brilliant Dead Alive, an early Peter Jackson favorite.Throw in the dark comedy of Four Lions and the thrilling monster movie aspect of Troll Hunter and you have an excellent lineup of friday night films. Join me tomorrow for the screening of Stakeland at Red River Theatres and keep an eye out for the new poster for the XFNFS part deux!
Here it is in all it’s glory. The poster for Red River Theatres Friday Night Film Series. When you given the task of drawing something you really love and have a real connection with there’s a certain amount of pressure. I love the B-movies, and these are no ordinary b-movies. These are products of serious craftsmen/women. I deeply admire Takashi Miike and Rutger Hauer. If anything I hope this inspires you to travel to Red River Theatres and check out this awesome lineup of movies. This was a total blast, but I need a drink now. Cheers!
