Illustrated Horror

There's nothing like the illustrated image of horror. It somehow stirs the imagination with excitement and adventure. I've always been attracted to bad films with great names, The Horrors of Spider Island, Zombies of the Underworld, Caverns of the Undead. The graphics and imagery that were used to promote them were extremely exciting, usually painted, and suggested a story far more interesting then the one they were selling.

I would like to thank Steven Hill for allowing me access to many of the images above. He has an immaculate collection of screen titles on his website that you can check out here.

Steven has also written two books on classic horror films, "Silver Scream, Classic Horror Movies Volume One and Two. Volume One is available now, and Volume Two is available as a pre-order - to be released later this year. For more info go to silverscream.info.

You should also check out this video promo that was created for the books - inspiring!!
