Bleak is the Future
The post-apocalyptic zombie genre seems to be enjoying a mild renaissance led by television shows such as "The Walking Dead" and video games like DayZ. If you're a fan of everything undead, it's likely you'll admire the work of 40-year old Michigan artist Matt Busch, whose zombie-filled movie posters run under the tagline Hollywood is Dead.
Four years ago, Lucasfilm contacted Busch to request zombified versions of the six "Star Wars" movie posters. "People loved it, and demanded to see more blockbuster faves, so I've been doing it ever since," Busch told Crave.
Enjoy this small collection of the many hand-drawn (and hand-painted) zombie movie posters created by Busch. It starts off with a reimagined "Back to the Future" poster entitled "Bleak is the Future." The parody, directed by Severed Spielberg, stars zombie actors Mykill J. Fox, Christopher Lied, and Cryptsin Glover. Tagline: "He was never in time for his classes. He wasn't in time for his dinner. Then one day, his time was up. Then everyone became his dinner."
