Low budget B-movies, exploitation films and slasher movies from the 50s, 60s & 70s have an iconic style that is often replicated by designers to pay tribute to this generation of cult film. Low quality print effects, dirt & grunge, hand brushed typography and plenty of blood splatters are all common features of this art style. In today’s post I showcase over 20 modern movie posters that have been designed with inspiration from these vintage horror films. They all perfectly capture the character of the originals using digital tools to mimic aged poster prints.

  2. I know the top clown in Circus of the Dead! Too cool, I live about 2 hours from Odessa, Texas where the double feature was played. Pretty cool that a guy across the pond featured the poster!

  3. They are really nice. Love the kind of worn and damaged font types on these posters. Is it possible to download them from somewhere?
