100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 2

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

A few days ago I posted 100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 1 to get myself, and hopefully others, in the Halloween spirit.  Much to my delight the post was a smashing success!  Big thanks to everyone who helped spread the word on that article.

As promised here is the second half of the horror and sci-fi illustrated posters collection.  Though a lot of these movies are not exactly masterful cinematic achievements, at least they sport some pretty kick ass poster art – so it’s not a complete loss.

Happy Halloween everybody!

100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 1

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

For some, Halloween means costume parties and drunken debauchery.  That’s never really been my style.  Personally, I like to spend my Halloween evenings eating candy and watching scary movies.  Yeah,  I’m a nerd – I know.

This Halloween season has had me reminiscing of the brilliant horror and sci-fi movie posters of years past.  Particularly, I am a fan of the illustrated posters that used to be the staple of nearly every science fiction and horror film released.  These posters are able to communicate so much about a film with a single, masterfully created image that it’s a shame this style isn’t so popular nowadays.

Since there were so many amazing posters to showcase, I have split this post into two parts.  Part two will be posted on October 31st.  But for now, you may feast on the first half.

An Ode To Criterion Box Art

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

For film nerds like myself, the Criterion Collection is the crème de la crème.  Every title in their incredible catalog is restored to pristine picture and sound quality and usually boasts some of the best bonus features out there.

But what is really seals the deal is Criterion’s gorgeous box art.  Every DVD in the Criterion Collection sports a completely original box art design.  They must have some of the best in-house designers working today as their DVD packaging just can’t be beat.  Needless to say, this makes it especially hard for the DVD collector to resist.

Here are 50 of my favorites…
