2018 Has Been Scary: We’ve Got The Posters To Prove It

Inspired by The Exorcist (1973)

Cars in space, a giant orange monstrosity floating above a city, Kanye on Twitter… a turbulent series of events throughout 2018 means that there’s no shortage of inspiration this Halloween. In the spirit of the season, global creative platform 99designs challenged its international community of designers to reimagine some of this year’s stand-out moments in the style of classic horror movie posters.

Political Plot Twist: British breakups and Australian spills

As Europe and the UK negotiate the looming terror that is Brexit, on the other side of the world the soap opera of Australian politics continued. With another dramatic leadership spill and one more knife to the back, the country is now on its seventh prime minister in just ten years. Taking inspiration from Get Out (2017), The Exorcist (1973) and Night of the Living Dead (1968) these pivotal moments of 2018 are enough to give anyone a fright.

Trump, baby!

Fake news or otherwise, no individual has been the subject of quite so many headlines in 2018 as the 45th American President. The now iconic Trump Baby balloon, first seen in London floating above the Houses of Parliament, takes centre stage in these reimaginings of classic posters from It (2017) and the theatrical release of An American Werewolf in London (1981).

Pop culture has a dark side…

Social media provides 24 hour access to people’s innermost musings, but in 2018 it also gave us videos of adorable if slightly confused dogs taking part in the Fluff Challenge. Self-driving cars are terrifying at the best of times – never mind when they’re in outer space. Starman driving a Tesla Roadster in space is one of the most iconic images of the year, while the dramatic return of “the being formerly known as Kanye West” to social media meant there was never a dull moment on Twitter.

Is she? Isn’t she? While Netflix brought us the real heroes of 2018 (the new Fab Five from the reboot of Queer Eye), Kylie Jenner showed the world how to masterfully handle media intrigue around her pregnancy, and the world was rapt. Terrifying.
