Monster Movie Posters: "Halloween II"

I love this poster for "Halloween II".  I'm not sure if it's a fan made poster or if it's a legitimate foreign poster, but either way, it's great!

Monsterpalooza 2014

It was another successful round of Monster fun at Monsterpalooza in Burbank, California!  The convention brings out incredible pieces of art created by the industry's top professionals.  Here are some of my favorites!

The Bicycle Girl from "The Walking Dead"

This creepy lady and her friend are from "The Conjuring".

An incredible likeness of Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine
created by Jordu Schell!

Casey Wong brings us this incredible piece of Tony Randall
as Dr. Lao from "The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao"!

Mike Hill does it again with this concept of the Frankenstein
Monster excavated years after his demise! (Photo by Stan Wong)

This piece was so realistic that it actually makes me incredibly sad.
I hate seeing my good friend in such a painful state.  It truly is remarkable.

Also don't forget that the Rondo Awards are up and running!  So vote for your favorites including "Classic Movie Monsters" as Best Blog!
Thanks everyone!
