Freddy Krueger has got to be one of the most terrifying villains in movie history–gruesome, knives for fingers, and attacks in your sleep, at your most vulnerable. Scary stuff and especially groundbreaking for those old enough to have viewed this film upon release!
Horror fans, this is the poster you’ve been waiting for! This stunning UK double crown with art from Graham Humphreys is easily one of the best posters of the 1980s, and one of the all-time best in the horror genre. Like the UK quad, this poster is highly sought after — but few know the art was tweaked slightly for the vertical format. As told by the artist himself in this wonderful interview by FilmOnPaper, this version with the added left hand creep around the side is his preferred version. This design was later used for the VHS cover as well. An extremely rare poster, much more so than equally amazing UK quad — and also a much more convenient size to frame and display!
