In light of today’s spooky date of October 31st, I wanted to put together a small list of my favorite horror movie posters. My friends and I would always talk about going to a convenience store when we were kids and looking at all the scary covers of movies our parents wouldn’t let us rent, and a few of these posters were the ones I remember seeing. That Evil Dead poster freaked me out pretty good back then.
Not only are all these posters great from a design standpoint, they are just great movies for a variety of different reasons. I probably watch all of these at least once a year, if not more. I know a couple of these don’t really hit the straight ahead horror genre, like Ghostbusters for example, but it has some nice scary bits mixed with the comedy and I couldn’t leave my beloved ‘Busters out of the mix. And its no secret how much I enjoy the poster for The Thing, still holds the title of “best movie poster ever” at the Signalnoise camp.
So, what are some of your favorite horror movies?
