Herner Klenthur

This Hellraiser Poster Design by Cadaverous Jake is similar in style and tone to his Children of the Corn poster.

This Nightmare on Elm Street Minimalist Poster by James Random is as good if not better then the theatrical posters.

With perfect use of color this Halloween Poster Design by Cadaverous Jake strikes a blow

I do not know who made this Psycho poster since I found it a long time ago but its still one of the best I have seen.

This minimalist Poster Design by Cadaverous Jake for Blair Witch works so well it doesn’t even need a title. I would love to have this one on my wall.

I do not know who made this Ghost Busters poster but I know who the studio needs to call to make the poster for Ghost Busters 3. The mystery artist that created this master piece.

A Shutter Island Minimalist Poster by James Random

A Dexter Minimalist Poster which is summed up in 1 word…. bad ass… ok that’s two words.

James Random’s Minimalist poster for The happening.

A true blood poster which really sinks its teeth into you.

        Hey thanks for including my Misery poster. I really love minimalist posters, and they’re really fun to try and make. If enough people liked my designs I’d even consider printing them to sell, but I think I still need practice to come up with more clever designs. I really love that Pet Sematary one.

        You are missing 2, there is only 35 unless I am missing something. Either way this is awesome. A great collection.

        The artist for the Psycho, Aliens and Ghostbusters ones is Matt Owen.  His website is brickhut.wordpress.com.  Nice collection of posters you’ve made here.  Check out my tumblr, minimalmovieposters.tumblr.com if you want to see heaps more posters in this style  :)

        ANOES was a good one, and BWP too.  My screen saver is a collection of movie posters, including some minimalist ones I found on Live For Films http://www.liveforfilms.com/2010/02/22/cool-minimalist-posters-innerspace-ghostbusters-the-fly-back-to-the-future-network-2001-and-more/  The posts loads of poster art, and some, I think are truly fantastic.

        Sorry, but I’m completely lost on the Alice in Wonderland poster.  Little help? I’m sure it’s obvious, but I’m not seeing it. Thanks!

          Line them up and read top to bottom.

          It says “were all med hare.” I think it’s supposed to be “We’re all mAd hEre.” Unless it’s supposed to be hare to tie into the white rabbit?
