Yowie Feature 'Throwback' Gets a Pulp Inspired Poster

In the remote jungles of northern Australia, two modern-day treasure hunters, a female park ranger and an unhinged ex-cop encounter a Yowie in Writer/Director Travis Bain's Throwback, a... errrr.... throwback to creature features and pulp adventure yarns of the 60's and 70's starring Shawn Brack, Anthony Ring, Melanie Serafin, and Commando and Mad Max 2's Vernon Wells.

A new poster by Brazilian artist Juarez Ricci has just been released for the upcoming Australian feature, and it's an evocative design that would look right at home on the wall of any self respecting exploitation fans' man cave!

In an era of shoddy digital art, the director was keen to avoid the modern movie poster trappings. "From the get-go I knew I wanted an illustrated poster rather than your typical modern 'floating heads' Photoshop design" Bain says of the poster art, influenced by the vintage creature features and pulp adventures that inspired the film itself. "Juarez's work reminds me of the old Drew Struzan and Richard Amsel posters I grew up with, so he was a natural choice to create this artwork."

Throwback recently debuted at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival in England and should be available on DVD and Blu-ray in 2014. Until then, you can check out the new one-sheet below. The poster is available for collectors to purchase at Zazzle.
