Halloween: 31 Awesomely Creepy Horror Movie Posters

Share

Halloween is not just “trick or treat”, it is a celebration deeply linked to the symbolism of death and the occult. An event that perfectly celebrates the encounter between the Christian and the pagan world. Among the many traditions that are repeated every October 31, we find horror films. Who hasn’t happened to watch a horror movie with friends on Halloween night and turn a sleepover into a night full of nightmares? Nowadays we can choose from hundreds of titles thanks to services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, we can start a movie and discard it after a few minutes if we don’t like it, but in the good old days of Blockbuster and video rental stores, the story was totally different. The only thing you could rely on was the movie’s cover or poster (remember those creepy Stephen King book covers?), so from a promotional point of view, the visuals and graphics of a horror movie were essential.

Usually, for the great classics of the past, very realistic illustrations were used to represent the main characters and the key scenes of the films. The titles were also often well edited and customized, and in many cases, the results were real art pieces. The Indieground team has selected for you the 31 essential horror movie posters that cannot be missing in your collections if you are a lover of the 80s visual culture. They could even look great hanging on your walls! Happy Halloween
