Braindead (also known as Dead Alive in the US) is a splatterfest of a film from Peter Jackson! In fact, after the numerous gross-out gags in Braindead — lawnmower zombie massacre and all — I’m still dumbfounded how the studios ever thought, “hey, let’s give this Peter Jackson guy hundreds of millions of dollars to make the Lord of the Rings trilogy!” 🙂
This Japanese poster has some of the most incredible art for the film. While no poster could fully encompass the awesomeness of this movie, the zombie baby is a very big part of the film and it’s rendered amazingly by famed “superrealist” illustrator Hajime Sorayama.
