Monster PSA: Adrienne Barbeau

sg
Unlike the last Monster PSA poster I did, which was inspired by the tagline first, this one was driven entirely by the fact I love Adrienne Barbeau, and desperately wanted her to be part of this series.

From Escape From New York to The Fog to Swamp Thing, Ms. Barbeau was a recurring...er, face in the movies I saw and loved as a kid. But not only was she a sex bomb, but she was tough--equally adept at firing a gun or kicking your head in as she was at seducing you. So for the tagline I wanted to reference that part of her on-screen persona.

As I write this, it occurs to me my last two Monster PSA posters both featured cast members from Swamp Thing. Surely, that's simply a coincidence...?

She is a great part of some classic films. Great poster, Rob!

Thanks, Joe! Like so many of us, I grew up with a major crush on Ms. Barbeau.

She was the only reason I watched Maude. "And then there's Fog!" (Hum to the Maude theme.)
