The Amityville Horror by NE - Undead Monday

"Houses don't kill people. 

People kill people." 


This Undead Monday, we revisit the terrifying visions of the 1979 film based on the novel of the same name, The Amityville Horror, thanks to Austin-based artist, NE. 




Being new in the rapidly-growing industry of graphic art galleries where alternate graphic renditions on established licenced properties of pop culture, Odd City Entertainment is still finding its footing with an impressive launch thanks to Chuck Sperry's inspired Dazed and Confused print last month. And now we can add another inspiring work to the new stable thanks to Austin-based artist, NE.

This Undead Monday, we revisit the terrifying visions of the 1979 film based on the novel of the same name, The Amityville Horror, thanks to Austin-based artist, NE. An awesome atmospheric piece at first glance, the fun truly begins when the lights go out as indicative from the below gif that merges all three versions of the print in one.

Here's what the artist himself have to say of the piece:



When I was asked to do a poster for Amityville Horror, I was somewhat hesitant. I know the obvious and even traditional way of depicting these movies has always been to predominately show the house as a living thing with glowing windows for eyes glaring back at the audience in a not-so-subtle way. I chose to approach the Dutch Colonial house in a more ambiguous way to show what had brought the Lutz family to live there in the first place. I wanted to show that the perceived promise of the American dream outweighed the ominous presence of the structure. To show this, I chose to depict that house as beautiful, an ideal, yet possessing and off-kilter quality. The font for the title reinforced this strange nature by recalling the European posters of the 60′s and the 70′s. Finally, the choice to make it literally a house on a hill was deliberate. After all, that is the view of it from the boat house.”



And here's what Odd City Entertainment founder and Chief Creative Director Roman Morales have to say on the piece:

“It’s been an honor to work with NE on this piece. This is his first time working outside of the confines of New Flesh and his first time doing 24″x36″ printing via D&L. We’re both curious and excited about the process. Plus, I just loved NE’s take on the Amityville house. When we look at the art our artists create, we can’t help but look at it through a collector’s eyes. As a collector, this would be a must have for me. So, I guess you could say that along with the curiosity and excitement, there is a lot of pride in NE as well.”
