Topic: Ur Favourite Horror Posters

What are ur favourite Horror movie posters. As I am studying Graphic Communication i have always been interested in Poster art, specifically Horror. I have 3 books on Horror movie posters all with excellent reproduction of examples from around the world. These are The Art of Hammer, The Art of The Nasty and Film Posters: Horror

Here are some example of mine

Interesting geometric, yet unusual layout

I particularly like the repetitive use and position of Typography in a post modern layout to emphasise the polish word for bird and its position within the composition. This clever graphic approach makes it appear very bold, almost threatening(like the horror film) and kinetic like its coming suddenly toward the viewer. This is also achieved by the increasing point size of the Typeface.

Cool Hammer Horror film poster.

Excellent and eyecatching poster that communicates the wacky energy of the film

Re: Ur Favourite Horror Posters

This 1927 Metropolis Poster is reportedly the most valuable movie poster of all time.  It is going up for auction again soon and is supposedly worth $1,000,000.

Love the Buried one. Very clever position of imagery and use of space.

Re: Ur Favourite Horror Posters
