Overview

Horror films often inadvertently became comedy films. Posters were almost be definition - misleading and 'over-the-top, but they often carried masterful illustrations where techniques and treatments were literally works of art. This collection of posters for horror films makes no judgement on the film quality, and concentrates on the artwork involved. Even when confronted with the most ludicrous stories, notably in earlier presentations, the creative artists worked wonders. Horror film presentations changed as technology improved, and plots moved moved more to the psychological and more removed from the physical. The selection reviews and reveals the development.
