Motel Hell Francesco Francavilla Movie Poster Release World Premiere Exclusive

As someone who recently got a meat smoker it is my pleasure to show you exclusively this tasty new treat, Motel Hell Poster by Francesco Francavilla and being released by Skuzzles. Motel Hell is a 1980 horror comedy film directed by Kevin Connor and starring Rory Calhoun as farmer, butcher, and meat entrepreneur Vincent Smith. People come from far and wide to sample Farmer Vincent's distinctively flavored dried, smoked sausages, but one might well ask why there are so few people staying at his nearby motel, named Motel Hello but the neon O in Hello is always flickering out. It seems that the good farmer only uses the highest quality, specially processed human meat in his treats. To prepare the meat, he first harvests healthy tourists from his hotel. Next, he plants them into the ground up to their necks and with a sharp knife carefully slices their vocal chords. He and his portly sister Ida then feed the victims until the meat is tender and well marbled with fat. Afterward they are promptly slaughtered, minced with a few secret herbs, and stuffed into sausage casings, which are then carefully aged in the smokehouse.

I talked to Francesco Francavilla about the poster:

Did Skuzzles give you a choice of movies to choose from to make a poster and if so why Motel Hell?
My first collaboration with SKUZZLES was the cover for the collector edition of JEEPERS CREEPERS dvd/blu-ray. Working on that with Brock was so much fun so when that gig was completed, we wanted to do more and soon. And the chance to do it presented itself almost right away with the MOTEL HELL poster. Brock asked me if I was interested and of course I was! '70s/80s horror? Hell yeah! :)

How did you decide on this design ?
I know usually the original MOTEL HELL posters have the chainsaw, but I wanted to go a different route and play on the fact that in the movie, at that place, they were serving "that" kinda meat. Hence my idea to use the cleaver (with reflected image of the victim). Thankfully both SKUZZLES and MGM loved the idea right off the bat. Of course, since we were planning a variant, we thought making the cleaver as foil for that edition was the right thing to do. Gotta say this was (again) much FUN to work on, so I am definitely looking forward to more SKUZZLES projects in 2015.
