awesome movie poster friday- the JAPANESE KICK ASS edition!

Japanese poster design is so good that I find myself wanting to see movies that stink.

Japanese poster design is so good that they make non-horror movies look scary.

Japanese poster design is so good!

Any poster involving a blood smear is aces with me.

John Barleycorn said...

The Blood Simple poster looks remarkably similar to the American Fargo poster. Huh.

And I heart that American Psycho poster. Huzzah! Tacos! Cunnilingus!

sir jorge said...

they are ok.

Nothing compared to Polish horror movie posters, of American Films.

What's the fourth one down?

Oh, the Poltergeist is pretty extreme.

Stacie Ponder said...

4th one down is Burnt Offerings...which I should watch again soon.

Ryne said...

Those are genuinely creepy!

repoman said...

Wow, I have not seen anything for years about "The Car". I think there is a film that Stacie needs to review. Count it a part of the films with possessed items that kill. It's so bad and yet, incredibly enjoyable!

James Brolin trying to look scared is reason enough to see it...

Bill Walsh said...

Gorgeous design. I really love the Poltergeist 2 one.

Fox said...

Is that a *The Fog* poster underneath the *Fargo* poster?

Also, I enjoy the *The Lost Boys* poster. I mean, it's kind of bad... but so bizarre that I love it.

i totally want to marry that lost boys poster. and since you introduced us, ponder, you can be the maid of honor.

I'll be the drunk who gets up in the short sleeve shirt and tie to sing karaoke "Copacabana."

Noah Soudrette said...

Those are sweet. The "Hell House" poster is particularly brill.

ladracul said...

You and me both...although Polish ones are scarier.

Piper said...

The CAR! Damn. In Japanese no less. Damn. Damn.

Is it just me or does everyone else produce cooler posters then the US.

Violetta said...

I'll be re-Tumbling the Lost Boys one. Horror people should learn how to convey messages on the sly.

Bonnie said...

That American Psycho poster is all kinds of awesome.
And is that the horse's eyeball on The Ring poster? Right before he jumps off the boat and gets chopped up? Or is that a scene from all the random crap on the tape that kills you? In any case, it doesn't look like Naomi Watts.

Karl Hungus said...

Proof positive that everything is better when it's Japanese.

Quintero said...

I thought the "bleeding skull" HELL HOUSE poster was fabu, but THIS one blew my socks off! Not bad on the POLTERGEIST 2 either.

GroovyDoom said...

That Japanese poster of "The Car" absolutely ROCKS.
