DesignCrave has posted 101 vintage campy horror movie posters online for your enjoyment.
With their lusty tag lines and busty heroines, vintage horror movie posters were a visual treat. Whether the scantily clad damsel in distress was being carried away by a vampire/robot/gorilla/alien or being chased by an over-sized tarantula/man/eyeball/leech a sexy, scary good time was afoot.
More bodice-ripping romance novel cover than guts and gore, we’ve gathered 101 images to celebrate the classic camp style of horror movie advertising. While even the most casual fans of the genre will be familiar with many, the imagery and summations of a few of the lesser known titles may be intriguing enough to warrant an actual movie viewing.
