Grey Matter Art Presents Explorers by Francesco Francavilla



I remember seeing Explorers in our little two screen theater in Medina, Ohio. I don’t remember who I was with or much of the film itself, but I do remember the awe of the adventure and being creeped out by the aliens. Oh yeah, and their home life seemed pretty slovenly too. I vaguely remember obese bipeds with a lot of junk food.

Anywho, I had lost track of the film as it was overshadowed by other great nerdy films of the 80s. Luckily for me though, Netflix brought this back front and center. Memories flooded back as River Phoenix and Ethan Hawke set off on their grand adventure. And timely as ever, our friends at Grey Matter Art drop a print to celebrate 30 years of this underrated classic!

See the final design below:

I'm a true child of the 80s from a small town near Cleveland, Ohio. My all time favorite topics are Star Wars, slasher films and Cleveland sports (despite the misery it causes). I narrowly avoided law school, instead choosing film school. I have been accused of being a walking IMDB, but I take it as a compliment!
