Here at Jinx, we deeply love imagery that harks back to the horror that influenced us growing up. The final chapter of Nazi Zombie Death Tales is pretty much my love letter to rubber puppet horror movies like Ghoulies and Gremlins, and the office is covered in framed uk quad posters of genre movies of decades past.
The pulp horror novels and anthologies of the 70s and 80s hold a special place in my heart. They represent not only my own awakening to the genre, in many ways, (as an adolescent, I was permitted to read Herbert and King long before I was aloud to watch films with forbidden ratings) but also a family connection. My late uncle Tim Stout was a contributor to the Pan Book of Horror and author of a novel called The Raging; although he didn’t care for the pulpy cover the novel was given, I flat-out loved it as a kid.
With these influences in mind, I am absolutely delighted to present a series of novelisation covers for three of our movies, designed by the brilliant Random Elements. Please go and visit their Facebook page for even more brilliant artwork. Without further ado, here they are.
Oh, who am I kidding? You already scrolled down and peeked, didn’t you?
