10 Goretastic Horror Movie Tributes

Horror movie fans are unlike any others, we’re dedicated—it’s not like fans of romantic comedy deck their man caves (or living rooms and bathrooms) with props, statues, or these scary posters.

What would the poster industry be like without us buying our favorite, delightfully detestable, marquees? There is a symbiotic relationship that exists between horror movie fandom and the creative mind, evidenced by the fact that so many graphic designers have created horror movie fan art commemorating their favorite characters and scenes. Here are 10 of these goretastic creepy creations for you to…sink your teeth into.

Leatherface by BryanBaugh

“Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is a favorite subject among horror aficionados and the artist certainly does it justice with this illustration.

Night of the Living Dead by petex

The classic zombie movie is even creepier when it’s rendered up close and personal, chock full of gory details.

SAW by neverdying

A newcomer to the classic cult horror flick, the “Saw” series, picked up scaring a new generation where series such as “Friday the 13th” left off.

Freddy, Michael, Jason in Color by DougSQ

I could have written a separate post on fan art for each one of these ’80s blockbuster horror stars: Freddy Krueger (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”), Michael Myers (“Halloween”), and Jason Vorhees (“Friday the 13th”).

London Underground by viergacht

If you’ve never seen “An American Werewolf in London,” you don’t know what it’s like to be afraid of the wolfman.

The Shining by fearn

Some stories are filtered by just one twisted mind; this was was maniacally molded by two: the novelist Stephen King and the director Stanley Kubrick.

Nosferatu by Genzoman

An oldie but goody from 1922, Max Schreck’s Count Orlok is still the most terrifying vampire I’ve ever seen on film.

Gage and Church: The Undead by Michael Shapcott

This is perhaps the creepiest concept in all of horror, if only because we actually get the protagonist’s motivation.

Bates Motel Postcard by smalltownhero

This piece puts a humorous, yet ominous, spin on “Psycho.” Norman Bates, you’ve never looked so dashing!

The Exorcist by rajat-2good4u

I’ve never met a single person who wasn’t creeped out by this classic movie, and if I do meet one that says it, I’ll know they’re a liar. Also-rans include “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Omen.”
