11 Alternate Horror Posters That Will Blow Your Mind!!

thai_posters_banner_9_11_12

Movie posters seem to be a dying art these days. One of the reasons we get so excited over a good one is because it’s almost as rare as seeing a unicorn. While boutique companies like Mondo regularly craft amazing and passionate one-sheets, it’s a business that the studios themselves rarely engage in anymore. I mean, Drew Struzan is still around, don’t you guys think he should be working more? As far as horror posters go, the 70′s and 80′s were obviously the halcyon days.

And that’s not only in the US! Earlier today Lonmonster stumbled across a ton of 80′s horror movie posters from Thailand (via Monster Brains)! And they’re amazing! They’re like the classic 80′s US posters but go the extra mile that takes them totally over the top! If you’ve ever wanted to see insane one-sheets for Evil Dead, Scanners, Total Recall, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Evil Dead 2, The Amityville Horror, Return Of The Living Dead, Day Of The Dead, They Live and more… you’re in luck!

    The Nightmare on Elm Street 3 poster looks like Freddy is going down on her and she is liking it ;-) sorry, couldn’t resist

    Love the thai posters!! I have a few of these hanging on my walls in fact. If you like these, check out my site http://www.sweetooth0.com. I have a whole section dedicated to replacement DVD covers where I format the original poster art (and foreign ones like many of these) for use as a replacement for your DVD’s or Blurays. Real movie art has pretty much been replaced by photoshop which blows because this is what got me into movies in the first place!

      sweetooth, very cool site! you have an awesome collection of DVD covers! i recommend your site to others. you have some really cool classic DVD cover there!

  • Darkness69

    Great posters! Even more so when compared to the poster for, let’s say, Silent Hill sequel coming out soon. These are fun and with so many details!

  • Cooper

    It seems the US and the UK always come up with the most boring, bland movie posters. These are great.

  • djblack1313

    these are fucking AMAZING!

  • BabyJaneHudson

    Oh man, great nostalgia compilation – makes me want to rewatch all of them. I really like the Return of the Living Dead poster – great 80′s punk.

  • bambi_lives8980

    I love foreign/alternate horror posters, they’re always so much more intricate and badass than the original or US art. This has been one of my favorite thing about collecting horror movie memorbilia is finding the awesome different foreign posters. Some of my favorites have to be Piranha 2 : The Spawnings alternate, the ROTLD and Evil Dead 1/2/AODarkness, The Thing (original Carpenter) and the alternate Dawn of the Dead poster found in the ’78 Dawn posterbook. If I can find some of these I’ll post links, but way to go BD these are so much more interesting to look at than most of the new horror news you guys post. Please do this more often to bring attention to some of the other great alternate posters that are out there.

  • DeathValzer

    Damn! These are outrageous.
    Especially the Evil Dead 2 one

  • Zombie-Killa

    Awesome! The Evil Dead posters are fucking amazing. Ugh, if I could only buy one these :(

  • xxEnOxx

    The zombie on the day of the dead poster looks like the automatic pilot from “Airplane!” got bit by a zombie. lol

  • Evil_Flip

    Awesome. And I think the Return of the Living Dead one is probably the only one that has Trash wearing clothes xD

  • Margoo1977

    But if you weren’t already familiar with the films, wouldn’t the posters kind of suck because they already gave away some of the best plot points?

  • Boogie138

    these are so awesome. love old school one sheets

  • ProudtobeUndead

    The explanation as to why these are awesome is EASY. It’s because people in Thailand fear nothing. Giant catfish and stingrays? Fuck you. That’s their reality. So horror movies have to try extra hard, duh.
