A Compilation Of Classic 1980s Horror Movie Poster Logos And Typography

Designer Christian Annyas compiled a collection of horror movie poster logos and typography from the 1980s.

According to Annyas, he wrote about how ‘Trajan’ has become the “go-to font for horror movie posters” and as a result “very few movie identities stand out from the crowd”.

He said, “Typography is hardly ever used anymore to express the theme or atmosphere of a movie.”

“If your movie is frightening, disgusting or gory, why not communicate that with moviegoers? That’s what they did during the 1980s. As a result every movie or franchise had it’s own unique identity.”

To bring the message across, Annyas compiled the following logos and typography.

What do you think? Do you agree with him?
