Pixelween Productions are proud to announce their acquisition of the legendary horror series After Blood. We will be screening all four films this month, exclusively on Pixel Joint.

This week, we're showing the original, John Putnam-directed 1965 feature starring Brigitte Laurent.

She's after blood. In more ways than one.

Marie has the perfect life. She's a successful model and she's engaged to a brilliant artist. Everything changes when she comes home to find him murdered and drained of blood.

Her investigation leads her to an ancient order of vampires, who attack her and leave her for dead. When she comes to, she finds she has become one of them, but that won't stop her from getting bloody revenge...

Definitely nailed the 60's horror poster aesthetic. The composition and font are great!

@ Stickman Thanks! I felt a bit down on this one after submitting it so it's nice that you prefer it. I downloaded a load of 60s horror posters for reference, and I'm glad I managed to pick up enough of the elements that it screams 'horror'.

I regret rotating the text, though. I think it looks janky as hell.

Out of the two you have submitted(both are really cool), I really like this one the most, as it screams - horror movie.

@wakimojo Thanks! If there's one thing I can definitely do, it's write a lot of nonsense

Great composition and I really like your use of dithering. Definitely one of my favourite entries.

love the poster and that dithering in border is so sweet!

Haha, just getting the description ready

I'm thinking of trying for two whole sets this year. One which tries to look like authentic retro horror posters (like this one, hopefully), and one with more of a focus on imagery. It's a tough first palette though, so we'll see how that goes!

"see the whole film franchise here:" hahaha, can't wait to see that fill up. Cool to see you're taking part again!!
