This Italian poster for David Lynch's classic Blue Velvet is a fascinating one. It's apparently banned, it's focal image is from a deleted scene and, well, just look at it! It's an obviously dark and sickening poster that reminds me of the posters for recent "torture porn" horror flicks, but... yet, I'm scarily transixed. Is it the alien-like blue lighting or just the cartoonish design or merely the danger of it all? I'm not really sure, but I like it anyway.

I saw this in a book years ago, it's amazing. Is it available to buy anywhere?
