I've seen some quite impressive vintage-style posters for new horror clicks lately and thought I'd collect a few and share them here.

I like the bottom two best. Mr. Jones has a terrible review, I found online; but In Fear has a pretty good one, sounds intriguing....

I actually like 'Willow Creek' best. It has a touch of 70s horror book covers about it. The bottom one is a lovely creepy image that says much about why we find plants scary. The other two are just okay.

Hellmouth is ok, the last three are great. Posters, that is.
People like seventies design now. It's bold, has a slightly botched feel that somehow has an air of antiquity about it. Even in the seventies they felt old - you were brainwashed into fear before you even walked through the door. But then the fact that even posters for comedies felt creepy makes you realise the 'creepy air' was probably a complete mistake.

Yeah, the Mr Jones poster is definitely my favourite, it blew me away when I first saw it. It really feels like a lot of film-makers are out distance themselves as much as possible from glossy homogenised Hollywood horror, or low budget crap dressed up as glossy Hollywood horror.

Another one of these popped up on my radar today.

This isn't exactly in the spirit of the thread but I couldn't think where else to put it. An artist has done some really quite wonderful posters for old Argento movies:
