Old Horror Films - Retro Film Posters - Attack Of The Crab MonstersFor your perusal today, I bring you a selection of old horror film posters and their theatrical trailers. I love the tone and swagger of old horror flicks, they promise to be the most terrifying thing you will ever see, and I guess at the time maybe they were. Bit in the cold light of the teenies they aren’t so worrying, we’ve reached a whole new level of terrifying each other. But the art work for the posters is brilliant.

Attack of the Crab Monsters, pictured above, is a film about people trapped on an ever shrinking island who are plagued by terrifying intelligent crab monsters…. tremble…. here’s a clip:


Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust, the classic: A New York University professor returns from a rescue mission to the Amazonian forest with the footage shot by a lost team of documentarians who were making a film about the area’s local cannibal tribes. It caused a right fuss at the time. After the film was shot, people started to believe it was a snuff film i.e. the actors had actually been killed during the shooting of the feature. To make matters worse, the producer had made the actors sign a contract that kept them out of the media for a year after the film was released. He had to break the contract to avoid life in prison! On a lighter note, seven animals were killed during the filming…. you don’t hear that anymore do you?
