The Posters of Frankenstein : Spanish Film Festival

Artist Daniel Fumero gives Boris Karloff the Warhol treatment on this poster for the weeklong Fantastic Film Festival, unfolding as we speak in the beachfront town of Estepona on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Frankenstein is the go-to guy this year — the festival’s 11th — with gala screenings of Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and Young Frankenstein (1974), an attendant exhibit of Frankenstein memorabilia, and a commemorative book, La Marca de Frankenstein, featuring original takes and reflections on the Frankenstein myth by a number of Spanish writers and artists.

Also honored this year is the late, great Paul Naschy, who was one of the original instigators of the Costa del Sol Festival. His passionate support and contributions are immortalized through the Festival’s Waldemar Daninsky award, given to artists whose work “supports the fantastic”. Winner this year is singing star Alaska, of the band Fangoria.
