Creepy and beautiful Scream movie posters are all the rage on the internet
We love a well-designed poster here at Creative Bloq, and the latest designs for the upcoming Scream movie caught our eye. Sporting a retro-style look, the new posters tick all our boxes with their iconic horror movie poster conventions, instilling both fear and nostalgia in us.
Scream is one of the last franchises to get a modern reboot, and it looks like the team isn’t compromising when it comes to creating iconic marketing. The film, which is due out on January 14, has released a few posters ahead of the premiere, and the internet is loving them. Need to design your own poster? Check out our roundup of the best online poster makers.
Both vintage-inspired posters released this week (see above and below) and were created by a professional poster artist, Scary duck design. Nothing says “horror movie” like the infamous Scream mask, so what do you get when you combine this iconic mask with a spooky blur, blood splatter, and heavy gothic serif font? Brilliant horror movie poster designs is what.
Despite how much we love the design, we can’t help but notice that these designs look so perfect from the 80s, but the original Scream came out in 1996. Perhaps the designers were looking to pay homage to some of the classic posters that came out in the 80s, in particular, ET the Extra-Terrestrial, which features a similar palette and a large moon, instead of referencing the original Scream posters.
We’re not the only ones raving about these posters — the internet also thinks they’re awesome. On the official Scream Reddit page, users complimented the designs, with one posting, “Love it. Brings back the ’80s slasher vibes,” and another describing them as “pretty nostalgic.” One Redditor hilariously said he could, “See a dinosaur in the moon. Perhaps the end credits scene will hint at a Jurassic World crossover,” and while we’re hoping to see dinosaurs in Scream, we seriously doubt they’ll make an appearance. (although if they do, we hope the next movie is called Roar).
