Movie Monster Anatomies

HERO1.jpg

With every great movie monster, the greatest fear is the unknown: what on earth is this scary, evil-looking thing in front of me, who looks distinctly unhappy, and also quite hungry?

Well, lack of research is now no longer an excuse for getting eaten alive, as these fantastic posters reveal the anatomies of five classic movie monsters. Designed by Brad McGinty, they also have back-stories of being found in a 'dusty antique store in Chinatown in 1984', with one even boasting text in 'original Martian'.

If you know how they work, you can beat them - so quickly learn Chinese and Martian, memorise those muscles, and you'll be able to take down the next Gremlin you see with ease.
