The Dagger Woods

Dagger Woods: James White

Dagger Woods pays homage to horror movie posters and VHS covers from the 70s. Long gone are the days when all you needed was a skull with the movie title to freak people out. I remember seeing VHS covers for Halloween, Rosemary’s Baby and Evil Dead 2 when I was little and desperately wanted to see these crazy movies, because if the cover was enough to scare me the movie must be insane.

Dagger Woods is an actual place in rural Nova Scotia. Upon seeing the road sign for the first time I immediately thought “That sounds like the scariest place on earth.” It would make a very appropriate horror movie title.

You can see a detail right here.

    …starring James Woods, Christopher Walken, and Phoebe Cates.

  2. Man, PLEASE tell me, not only will these become prints, but you’ll make these kick-a** retro designs into wallpapers? I would enjoy seeing them on my Macbook Pro desktop. Amazing work. The Commodore 64 and Varo designs being my fav so far.

    Jay, that casting call sounds absolutely perfect. Maybe the addition of Bruce Campbell as well.

    Johnnie, thanks for the note! I will be adding a few more wallpapers in the near future, and will definitely keep the pieces you noted in mind for the next installment :)

  4. You’re more than welcome, James. I checked out the rest of your Retro-cosmic album on Flickr. Can I make a formal request that everything in there be turned into desktop wallpapers? :)

    Amazing work.

    p.s.
    my screen res is 1680 x 1050 incase you’re wondering what sizes you might need. :)

    The cast would ideally need one respectable character actor from the 60s or 70s (Donald Pleasance in “Halloween”, Hal Holbrook in “The Fog”) and one name that would go on to greater glory in the years to follow (Kevin Bacon in “Friday the 13th”, Johnny Depp in “Nightmare on Elm Street”). Also, a bevy of young hotties who were ready to get their gear out.
