Homage? Rip Off? You Decide...

As a graphic designer I'm certainly not above being "inspired" by great design concepts, layouts or ideas that I see in magazines, newspapers, etc. But I hope that when I do take inspiration from something it isn't as blatant a lift as the poster below.

Tomb It May Concern scribe David Z posted a link to a poster for the upcoming ECW pay-per-view event (shown below left) over at the Eurotrash Paradise group. As soon as I saw it I couldn't help but notice the glaring, oh, let's call them "similarities" to the poster for the controversial Christmas-themed slasher flick SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (below right).

Take a look and decide for yourself...

I think Dave should be ashamed of himself! ;-)
