Film Posters Horror

Availability: Ready to download

This splendid, if scary, collection of movie posters covers over 80 years of horror films and features all the classics of the genre from early silents such as "Nosferatu" (illustrated here with a hitherto unpublished poster) and "The Cabinet of Dr Caligari" to contemporary blockbusters like "Silence of the Lambs". The films are grouped by categories, such as Universal Stu This splendid, if scary, collection of movie posters covers over 80 years of horror films and features all the classics of the genre from early silents such as "Nosferatu" (illustrated here with a hitherto unpublished poster) and "The Cabinet of Dr Caligari" to contemporary blockbusters like "Silence of the Lambs". The films are grouped by categories, such as Universal Studios' uniquely rich hoard of horror, the products of British horror specialists Hammer Films, Japanese horror movies, horror spoofs such as "An American Werewolf in London", or serial killer movies. Also featured is the work of directors who are wholly or partly remembered for their contribution to the genre, like Roman Polanski ("Repulsion" and "Rosemary's Baby"), Alfred Hitchcock ("The Birds" and "Psycho"), David Cronenberg ("The Fly") and Brian de Palma ("Carrie and Sisters"). Horror, perhaps more than any other genre, offers the poster artist the opportunity to create an image that is both disturbing and memorable. This book shows just how rich is the tradition upon which movie-goers can draw for their nightmares.

    RW Press

    A great large format book, showcasing the great artwork from the horror genre of cinema. It shows how horror posters and artwork have evolved over the years, many of the very old posters, from around the 40s-50s, seem humorous to us now, and probably goes to show how desensitised we are to some forms of horror nowadays.
