Horror Art – Horror Movie Poster Art

The horror art of movie posters and DVD boxes

Back in the ‘ol days, movies always had artwork for their posters. Sometimes they would start with a photograph and paint-in color and other aspects of the films. These days it is more often photograph/film-still composites that make up the poster and dvd box art. I decided to take a look at some of the movie art of older horror and sci-fi films.

Depending on what year and what company released the DVD, Blu-Ray, or VHS tape (and what country) – there could be several different artwork representations for the same film. I’ve gathered alternative designs for box art and movie posters from some vintage (and some not-so-vintage) films. Enjoy!

    • I started collecting movie posters (repros not originals) some years ago but had no where to hang all of them. Then I discovered that certain companies print original movie poster art on postcards – I got a huge collection of those. Gotta, show them here someday.

      • I think you should show them off. I’m planning to start collecting them but I just know I would run out of walls soon.

    • I had owned one of the Kong posters (reprint) at one time but it got ruined. I still have the 9ft, Kong poster that they used to advertise in the back of Famous Monsters in the 1970’s?

      • Ah yes! i think I know the one. Unfortunately, I don’t have most of my posters anymore but once we move into a bigger house and I get situated with a home office I may start again and Kong will be one of my first for sure.
