Handsome Prints: Vice Press Brings You John Carpenter Goodies Galore From Matt Ferguson

by Olly MacNamee

Seems Vice Press have something of a crush on John Carpenter. And, why not? He’s produced some of the most iconic horror films of a generation and is still going strong. Well, Vice Press will be at this year’s Thought Bubble and they have a great deal of exclusives to share with con-goers. Like me!
First up is Studiocanal’s brand new 4K restorations of some Carpenter’s better known films from the ‘80s. These are The Fog, They Live, Escape From New York and the underrated Prince of Darkness. The can be pre-ordered now through online store, Zavvi, who have collected everything together on one useful page found here.

All sleeve artwork has been produced by Vice Press’s very own Matt Ferguson, so you know they’ll look dope.
On top of that is the news that these newly minted films will also get a selective showing on UK cinema screens with The Fog premiering at The London Film Festival on October 15 and from October 26, They Live and Prince of Darkness will screen as a warm-ups to the big Halloween one-night special of The Fog.
Escape From New York will be also be screened at cinemas across the UK for one day only on November 22nd. Check local listings for more information, I reckon.

And, guess who’s providing the art for additional prints too. Yep, Matt Ferguson knocks it out the part for the double with a set of retro-looking poster prints that will be available for purchase via Great Matter Art. So, keep ’em peeled for the upcoming schedule of releases.
You want more? You’ve got it!
Ferguson has also produced this limited edition tee which will be exclusively available to members of this mailing list and they’re  Facebook group. I’m already signed up, but are you?

Looks like it’ll be another Happy Halloween all round for Carpenter’s fans.
