“You can’t kill the boogeyman.” Few films in the history of cinema can claim to be as influential as John Carpenter’s 1978 cult classic, Halloween. Not only did it establish many of the most common tropes in the horror genre, but it also introduced the world to the genius of John Carpenter. To top it all off, Halloween was one of the most profitable independent films of all time — with a budget of $300k it made over $110 million!

The US 1-sheet for Halloween has iconic art from Robert Gleason and the design has without a doubt become synonymous with the horror genre itself. An interesting easter egg…. the fist holding the knife makes face. If you look closely at the space between the knuckles you can make out eyes and a mouth, with the knuckle of the middle finger forming the nose. Amazing that you can still find something new in such a well-known image! Rolled versions of this poster are almost unheard of and this particular example was incredibly never folded!
