The run up to Halloween is the perfect time to absorb some inspiration from horror films! Designers, artists and illustrators love to produce fan art for their favourite movies, and the scary film genre provides plenty of creative avenues for them to explore. In today’s showcase I present 30 freakishly good alternative movie posters and tribute art for a collection of horror movies, ranging from the popular classics to low budget productions (and a few fictional titles too!), with a variety of art styles and clever compositions.

  3. Thank you for putting this together! Some great stuff in here, I LOVE the first “Shining” poster of the watercolor type landscape. Beautiful and eery, does the movie justice.

    Thanks again, cheers!

  4. A collection of vintage, flat, retro combination with abstract. Best scary collection for inspiration in future poster projects. Nice to share. Keep it up.
