SUPERTRASH

There's a film festival and art show going on up in Portland next month. It's sponsored by Night Gallery, Floating World Comics and Fantagraphics.

The artists were asked to do their own interpretation of a movie poster from a real sci-fi/horror/xploitation film.
I chose Lifeforce the 1985 Tobe Hooper movie about space vampires that suck electricity out of you.
Here's my interpretation of that (click for larger view):

That movie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, but I think it left a pretty deep impression in my brain. I recently re-watched it and it's still a great, weird, sci-fi-horror movie.
