Framed Vintage Horror Movie Art

Some of the most iconic movies in history have been in the horror genre. Many framed vintage horror movie posters have become just as famous as the films that they advertised. Although the definition of horror continues to evolve, the impulse to scare the audience will always be popular, as will the art associated with such films.

Many of the iconic early horror films would certainly be considered tame by contemporary standards, but they were frightening in their time. The framed vintage horror movie wall art for such movies often referred to other artistic movements of the time. “Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” is not only a classic early film that remains popular today, but also its poster, and indeed, the sets in the film, are classic examples of the Expressionism of that era.
The 1950s saw movies with more sensational titles. The framed vintage horror movie artwork saw a graphical style closer to comic books or illustrations. It is easy to guess the nature of the nefarious creatures in “Werewolf vs. the Vampire Woman” and “The Killer Shrews.” From the 1970s on forward, the tendency with horror movies and the art associated with them has been toward more explicitly unsettling imagery, such as in “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”

Occasionally makers of horror movies like to lighten things up with a bit of humor, which the movie posters reflect. One of the most famous examples is “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes,” which features a ridiculous cartoon image of a giant tomato with large, sharp teeth. The poster for “The Lost Boys” features Kiefer Sutherland as a vampire with a mischievous smirk on his face.
