When I first started this feature my intent was to highlight classic movie posters just as much as new ones. But end of the year movies and awards season got me off track. What better way to get back on track than this beauty? When released in 1985, William Friedkin’s neo-noir thriller received mixed reviews from critics (one big exception was Roger Ebert who loved it). But since then the film has gained a hearty following. Either way, the movie’s poster is one of my favorites from the 80s. Tell me what you think.
