There's a Bunch of Original Halloween Posters Going Up for Sale Today

By Germain Lussier on at

Yes, the 1978 John Carpenter Halloween is getting a reboot/sequel on October 19, but for fans of the original film that just can't wait here's something pretty cool.

Bottleneck Gallery is releasing, for the first time, limited edition screenprints of Bob Gleason’s legendary poster for the original film. Sure, you can own the image as a flimsy lithograph any day of the week, but Gleason and the gallery worked together to recreate the image as a finely crafted screenprint. You can buy it not just as the regular poster, but also on foil or as an art print, if you prefer it without titles. Check out the different images below, along with the edition sizes and costs.
