Retro Horror Movie Posters

It's Halloween! We all have our ways of celebrating this holiday, some of us will do some trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, playing pranks, telling scary stories or like me watch some old horror movies. This is a showcase of retro horror posters of famous and not-so famous movies from the mid 30s until the late 80s. They are mostly illustrated but in my opinion are the most successful of expressing the emotions and triggering your imagination of fear.

The Awesomeness of Old B Horror Movies

Retro horror movies posters are pretty sweet, and designing them requires much more than just checking references and all that. The best reference to make a killer horror movie poster is to actually watch some old B horror movies! I know that Halloween is gone, but we don't need an excuse to design and watch cool trailers, right? So here I made a selection of some really trashy, retro B horror movies trailers for your delight. I really hope you get the purpose of this: inspire the hell out of you. I hope you can still have a good night of sleep by the end of this post. Cheers! ;p Monster in the Closet (1987) Gorgo (1960) Monster from a Prehistoric Planet (1967) Magic (1978) The Gate (1987) Hell of the Living Dead (1980) The Legend of Hell House (1973) Deranged (1974) The Evil (1978) The House of the Witch (1975) This one is my FAVORITE.

Back to the Future Tribute

Next year, the greatest story ever told will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. For me, Back to the Future is the best trilogy that there is, flawless or not, and since I was presented with the dvd set, I watched the full trilogy at once, and that was one great experience. I was so excited about it that I started looking for all things Back to the Future over the internet, and found a bunch of things, from posters to screen caps, and memorabilia, and other cool stuff. Since it is a 80's movie, it totally has to do with Abduzeedo's source of inspiration: the 80's culture. Take as an example the hover board and its bright colors: pink, lime, yellow, with its diagonal lines and patterns. There could be a wallpaper out of it. Or remember the 2015 Nike worn by Marty McFly... who doesn't love its futuristic design? Who? :p That said, the most natural thing to do was to pay tribute to these fantastic films, and share if you guys some awesome findings. All I hope is that the future generations get to know this trilogy, and join the legion of fans worldwide. Also, we'd love to know how do you like the trilogy. What do you like about it the most? Tell us! Cheers. ;) Behold the Flux Capacitor "It's what makes time travel possible!" The sweet, sweet Nike McFly Robert Zemeckis and Michael J. Fox chilling out. The DeLorean. The DeLorean in Back to the Future. Miniature of the DeLorean in Back to the Future II. Miniature of the DeLorean in Back to the Future III. Miniature of the DeLorean on rails in Back to the Future III. This is a WEDDING CAKE. Seriously.

It totally surprised me, and I can't wait to test it. Now you ask: "What are you talking about, Paulo?". I'm talking about the best game mod ever conceived: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Mod All I can talk about is: Check out the download page, check out the videos! You'll freak out as much as I did. ;p

10 Years of The Matrix

10 years ago a true revolution began. With the release of the first installment of The Matrix franchise, the movies industry was not the same anymore. To celebrate it, we've got some awesome pictures and clips to show you. Bring it on! Bullet time and slow motion kung fu fight scenes drew a new line on how movies were made back then. I remember with awe how stunned I was the first time I watch The Matrix in a movie theater... and even after having watched it so many time, it still facinates me. The Wachowski brothers are THE MEN. I really hope there's a 10th Anniversary commemorative DVD on its way... anyways, here my selection of pictures, to celebrate the 10 Years of The Matrix. And of course, here's some of the best scenes from the trilogy. Gotta love it! :)

Old School B-Movies Posters

Movie posters are probably one of the best ways to check some cool designs. Hollywood posters tend to look alike... floating heads, photoshop effects and all that. But B-movies are in another level of coolness for sure. B-Movies posters usually are corny, but its old school feel makes just the trick. And of course, not only the design itself is cool, but also the movies names. Seriously... some of these are truly bad ass. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these, which were found at cool B-movies blog called "Wrong site of the Art". I encourage you people to visit it, there are tons of posters there!! Cheers!
