When Tom Whalen heard that a local theater would be screening “The Terminator” in April as part of their First Friday Fright Night series , he knew that he had to get to the drawing board and do a worthy rendition of one of his favorite films.
The graphic artist writes, “I’ll never forget watching “The Terminator” for the first time at a sleepover sometime around 1984-1985. I was at Matt Sobolewski’s house and I distinctly remember my 4th grade mind being blown by the time travel aspect of the film and my 4th grade heart pumping a mile a minute as i witnessed the relentless nature of Arnold’s path of destruction through LA. Top all of that off with Stan Winston’s endoskeleton (which, along with his “predator” design will go down as some of my favorite movie monsters ever), and you have a movie that left an indelible mark on me as a kid and would inspire me for the rest of my life.
Kudos Tom on this great poster! Hopefully the artist will be coaxed into selling some reproductions of the image.
