So What Else Is on the Menu?

Late last week, when I published my Rap Sheet piece about Roger Kastel’s work on the Jaws film poster and paperback cover, I noted that his artistry had inspired myriad thematic imitations. Since then, I’ve come across two more posters that probably would not have existed without Kastel’s influence. Below, please enjoy an advertisement for the 2011 direct-to-video horror flick Sand Sharks and another one touting the 1981 film Piranha II: The Spawning, a sequel to 1978’s Piranha.

Interestingly, Pirahna II was one of the early motion-pictures directed by James Cameron, who later gave us Aliens, Titanic, and Avatar.
