Exclusive First Look – New Flesh’s The Exorcist


Find tickets and showtimes on Fandango.

There are many fans of  William Peter Blatty’s Exorcist. William Friedkin made this movie a horror classic among many movie fans young and old.

N.E. has gone all out with this one and you can tell when you see this in person. Here is what he has to say about this stunning print.

“About a year ago I was commissioned to create a poster to commemorate the movie The Exorcist. The 40th anniversary was coming up and it was going to be a nice thing to celebrate the film.

The Exorcist, while being one of the scariest films of all time, is ultimately about a priest’s crisis of faith, guilt, and ability to fight a very personal spiritual battle. I tried to convey this emotion and intensity with contrast and oppressive shadows in the illustration. By using a more stark composition, I hope to achieve a singular or at least striking image.

The finished art was shown to the film’s director William Friedkin, who not only gave his approval for it to be printed but generously offered to sign the 25 Variant run.”
A little aside note on the variant:
Since I first started printing posters I have always been interested in using different papers and materials to print on and with (Holy water, anyone? wink). While most screen prints use fairly good paper to print on they are ultimately not made to stand the test of time. This fact (and the urging of my mentor and guardian angel John Davis of Poster Mountain) led me to use Arches on the variant run. This paper is incredible and literally will last generations.
