Elektroniczny Morderca



Polish poster for the 1987 release of James Cameron's The Terminator. Designed by Jakub Erol. Doesn't take much of a linguist to work out that the film's riding with the handle Electronic Murderer, a wonderfully blunt bit of cobble poetics. Extra points for being in-text too. Instead of the studio posed tech-noir incongruity our ads enjoyed, here we have an image of Schwarzenegger as he appeared in the film: haggered, with a singed hairpiece, spilling psychedelic automation bubbles from his camouflaged robo-eyes.
