Slasher Movie Posters: “Prom Night III: The Last Kiss” (1990)

Prom Night III: The Last Kiss is horror comedy about a high school boy named Alex, and his bizarre love triangle with a beautiful blonde and a devilish brunette. The brunette is none other than Mary Lou Maloney. Mary Lou and the man she would kill for are featured on the official poster for this film. What I really like about this poster is that it is very off-the-wall and similar in nature to the movie. They are both on a motorcycle and flames are shooting up and Alex is all decked out in his bad boy biker gear. All this while Mary Lou is straddling the back with her skirt hiked up and topped of with a devilidh smile.


The second graphic here is the DVD cover art for the UK release. We have here a much different look and vibe compared to the original poster. Mary Lou is now sitting in a pit of flames while wearing the US flag. Very odd and does not really fit well with the feel of the film. This cover does not do the film justice and will easily throw off any potential viewer. This comes off very serious and i find it almost comedic that they chose to keep the, “Romantic comedy from hell” tag line.

Slasher Movie Posters: “Humongous” (1982)

The 1982 film, Humongous definitely has its fun moments, and then it also has its dark moments. That’s what is so great about the two posters shown here. The first one is very light-hearted with a cartoonish drawing and baby blocks spelling out the title. A fun poster, but does not really tell you what you will be in for as you begin to watch the film.


The second poster featured here has a much darker feel to it. The emotions are deep and the colors are rich. This version really lets the viewers in on a little more of what is to come. The addition of the dog was a nice touch. Overall, both posters are drastically different, but both great additions to any horror poster collection.



Horror Movie Posters: “Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama” (1988)

The US version of the Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama is pretty straight forward. We have some sorority babes in a bowling alley and the artwork is fairly fun with the two girls in the background standing over two of the college boys.


The foreign version is much different. In this poster, the title is not only changed to “The Imp,” but he is smack dab right in your face. This is a very interesting choice because this gives the film a completely different feel to a potential audience member. Both very cool and both very hard to find in the original format.



Horror Movie Posters: “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (1974)

The posters for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 1974 each showcase the one and only, Leatherface and his beloved chainsaw. The US version is more on the simplistic side with the white background and block text. A true classic for any horror fan.


This French version is much more gritty with an abstract art feel and warm colors that are highlighted with the blood red spots found throughout. The hand is a very nice touch!



Slasher Movie Posters: “Cabin Fever” (2003)

Eli Roth’s 2003 Cabin Fever featured some great graphic design concepts that were worked into the posters as well as the DVDs. The most prominent and well known cabin fever poster is pictured above. The trees and cabin form a skull-like graphic that is subtle yet easy to see and makes for a very unique piece. This was also the cover art for the DVDs and Blu-ray’s. There were a number DVDs that also came with a 3D slip cover with the skull fading in and out.

Another poster for Cabin Fever gives the onlooker a straight reference to the film. If you have never seen the film before and have no idea what it is about, then the artwork shown on this poster will give you a small glimpse of what is to come.


Horror Posters Of The Week: “Night Of The Creeps” (1986)

This 1986 horror-comedy features brain infesting aliens that turn humans into flesh eating zombies.

This film was fortunate enough to have more than just one great poster. Each poster gives off it’s own unique feel and tone and they all show off some killer artwork. All three feature a zombie and two of them show off the tag line, “The good news is your date is here. The bad news is…he’s dead.”

Tom Atkins stars in Night Of The Creeps with his famous catch phrase, “Thrill me!”
