New quad poster for The Town That Dreaded Sundown arrives online

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's (American Horror Story) The Town That Dreaded Sundown provides some classic scares, so it seems fitting that this new quad poster has employed a classic poster artist. Graham Humphreys, justly lauded for his Evil Dead (1981), Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) and FrightFest work, has composed this beautiful old school image for the film.

We also have a series of work in progress shots.

Nominally a remake of Charles B. Pierce's 1976 slasher, Gomez-Rejon's film is actually a bit more interesting than that. The new version takes place in a world where the previous film exists and everyone has seen it. Gomez-Rejon wanted to explore the notion of a town that suffered a real life horror and then came to be defined by a movie version.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown stars Addison Timlin (That Awkward Moment), Veronica Cartwright (Alien), Gary Cole (Pineapple Express), Anthony Anderson (The Departed), the late Edward Herrmann (The Wolf Of Wall Street), Ed Lauter (The Artist) and Denis O'Hare (Dallas Buyers Club). A book and exhibition of Humphreys' horror art is planned for later this year.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is out now.
