Posters help sell a movie. They catch the public’s eye and, if you’re the right target for what they’re selling, they should encourage you to buy that ticket. Though the art is somewhat dead today (too many Photoshopped pictures of teen stars, not enough design), there are still plenty of examples from the golden age of slasher flicks (admittedly filtered through nostalgia) that successfully hint at the suspense, shocks and depravity the flicks they’re huckstering promise to contain. Though not all of the flicks represented are worth watching, there’s something about their posters that I respond to. Take a look, and add a comment about your favourites (or the ones you’d knock off the list).
