A local design group is giving old movies new posters.

Friday night, AIGA Nebraska and Omaha Public Library will present “A Carnival of Souls,” an exhibit of locally designed posters to classic B-movie horror. The showcase will serve as the kick-off party to OPL's Omaha Lit Fest.

Redesigned movie posters include “Night of the Living Dead,” “House on Haunted Hill,” “Plan 9 from Outer Space” and a lot more.

“Our design community seems to have a lot of interest in classic and B-movie horror,” said Todd Cramer, director of communications for AIGA Nebraska.

When AIGA Nebraska called for submissions, the poster designs had to be 18x24 and for a movie in the public domain.

Beyond that, designers could pretty much run wild. And many of them did.

“So far what I've seen has been great,” Cramer said. “Some of the them have a more traditional poster design. Some are totally unique.”

Prints of the posters will sell for $25 a piece. Proceeds will go to AIGA Nebraska's Designing Opportunity Scholarship fund for Nebraska design students in need.

“A Carnival of Souls” exhibit will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday at W. Dale Clark Library, 215 S. 15th St. Admission is free. Poster prints are $25 each.
