Lists From Other People

100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 1, and Part 2. Some truly stunning, every one of them worth at least a quick look. I’m especially fond of this type of poster. When I was young they fascinated me and got my imagination going like few other things. As I got older and got to see [...]



Coraline From A to Z

December 17th, 2008 at 8:19 pm » Comments (2)

26 Letters. 26 sites. 26 Posters. That is a lot of posters. And a lot of sites. Luckily IMPAwards has collected them all in one place, making things much easier for us all. With 26 posters being released at once it will be no surprise that most of them aren’t particularly remarkable. But the effect [...]



Madea Goes to Jail Poster

December 15th, 2008 at 7:38 pm » Comments (7)

The posters for Tyler Perry’s movies are one of this site’s obsessions. So I just have to post the latest one. But even if I didn’t have to, I would do it anyway. Keeping with the tradition this early poster is beautiful and restrained, and feels and looks different from most of the other posters [...]



Comic Books Are Fun

IGN released a few days ago this very entertaining list written by Jay Hainsworth of what they deem to be The Top 25 Comic Book Movie Posters. Some of the longtime readers might notice that many posters from this old post make an appearance. Which probably tells you more about the scarcity of great comic [...]



Final Poster for My Bloody Valentine 3D

December 9th, 2008 at 9:29 pm » Comments (3)

I guess the idea of this poster is to draw attention to the 3D effect but still produce a creepy poster that feels like the poster for a serious horror movie. I like the idea, but I’m not sure the execution works all that well. The 3D aspect is much more muted than it was [...]



A Walk Down Memory Lane

This weekend I ended up watching a fair chunk of Krull, which reminded me of just how much I liked this one back when I was a child. A truly under appreciated gem of a fantasy movie if you ask me. The posters, unfortunately, aren’t anything to write home about. Typical and uninspired eighties fair [...]



New Terminator Salvation Poster

December 1st, 2008 at 8:03 pm » Comments (9)

I have to admit, the Terminator’s face emerging from the destroyed remains of a city is one of the coolest poster images I have seen this year. A very good idea expertly executed in this case. And this flash “moving” version makes the whole thing even better. I wonder how long it will take until [...]
