The 50′s Ain’t What They Used to Be

I love 50′s style sci-fi posters. Especially the ones about invasions from out of space. This, for example, is great. And the idea of trying to use the style to create a poster for a film that as a bit of a parody of those movies is awesome.

But this is not a good poster. It wouldn’t have worked as a serious poster back them and doesn’t work as a spoof poster now. too much stuff, very little of it actually memorable.

Sigh. I guess I’ll have to stick to the originals.

    It looks like Plan 9 meets Scary Movie!
