The forthcoming 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' poster was released recently and when I saw it, I decided I wanted it on my wall, being the sicko I am. So I painted it.

The canvas size is 70cm x 100cm. I used up lots, and I mean LOTS of black acrylic paint on this one.

There's not much difference in comparison with the actual poster, I just added some red drips, bits of green splatter and messed around with the background a tad.

I LOVED THIS MOVIE! I saw it the day after it came out, but there were still a hell of a lot of ppl there. Although, I DID miss the old Freddy...:( But I guess Robert Englund didn't wanna do it...:(

This painting is sexy as hell. Wish I could replicate like that. Looks better than the poster, I think.
I'm looking forward to seeing the movie; I think Jackie Earle Haley will do a good job.
