A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

The year (so far) in review… in the style of horror film poster art

00. Kylie Jenner's Rosemary's Baby @2x

We love a good bit of irony in modern art, which is why kudos must go to Melbourne-based creative platform 99designs for getting into the Halloween spirit and inviting artists to turn this year’s big news moments into classic horror film poster art.

From leadership spills to infant-like presidents, mystery pregnancies to incessant tweeting, see if you can make the political and pop cultural connections below.

There’s plenty that points to Brexit, and even a little shade thrown the way of big-mouth businessman Elon Musk.

Anyway, enjoy the horror show…
