Technicolor Fright

Along with picking apples, growing a beard, and carving pumpkins, Fall is also the season for watching scary movies. Horror and science-fiction films have always provided artists and designers with vivid and surreal sources to create images they never would have created otherwise. It is impossible to imagine a movie poster created today without an actor's airbrushed portrait prominently displayed, proof of the films worthiness. These vintage posters communicate the various film's subtleties without the crutch of a beautiful star.
