100 Horror Film Posters
By Allan Maurer
Now here’s a treat. Andrew Lindstrom’s blog “Well Medicated” displays 100 horror film posters.
My favorites include “Tarantula,” “Planet of the Vampires,” “Day of the Dead,” “Nosferatu,” the rare “Dracula” poster, “Robinson Crusoe on Mars,” and the unusual “Invaders From Mars” poster. The 1950s original version of “Invaders From Mars” was consciously designed to reflect a child’s nightmare vision of the world. Sure did work on me. I had nightmares for months after seeing it, despite the clearly visible zippers on the costumes the Martians wore.
Lindstrom includes lots of other posters, classic and modern.
This is an unusual collection, not the run-of-the-mill posters usually seen from any of the films he includes. You’ll surely have your own favorites.
Go take a look, but don’t droll on your keyboard…
