Guess what movie I just watched again? A mostly accurate font inspired by the movie "Total Recall" (1990). Consider it an experiment in using the 2x vertical filter.

**2017 08-13 Update**  Taking advantage of the expanded brick-stacking minimums, I have modified the following glyphs: A a R r S s Z z 2 7 ? _ +

The diagonal leg of the R is still not quite correct; further attempts might be made in the future.

I have also removed the 2x vertical filtering.  We are back to good old 1x filtering now.

I love it. I never realized how quirky the Total Recall poster lettering was until now.

A side note - I went as Kuato last year for halloween, but I didn't get any pics of it :(

Thanks, Lex!

Yes, the typeface used on the poster is rather strange -- a random mishmash of styles between characters: right angles versus slanted corners; vertical stems versus slanted stems.

Due to the composite and brick-stacking limits of FontStruct 2.0, the R, S and Z are quite close but not 100% accurate. However, they will get the job done. :^)

Cracked.com member Unkeen used my font in one of their Photoplasty contests:

@alopera - Thank you for the kind words. With the latest update to FontStruct, I may have to revisit this one to finally get the "R" correct!

This font looks perfect to me. (I always laugh out loud when the heads inflate like balloons and the eyeballs and tongue pop out from the pressure and absence of air on Mars in the related B movie sequences of this blockbuster that you enjoy too! *out of breath*)
