Classic Monster Posters

Updated on October 9, 2014

Classic Movie Posters of Classic Monsters

Some of the best horror films gave us terrific classic monster posters. The posters advertised the tantalizing creepiness that only scary films can provide.

These black and white posters and color posters of classic monsters are suitable for framing. Let the spookiness of these larger than life monsters like The Mummy, Frankenstein, Godzilla, and Dracula adorn your walls.

Some of the best monsters are from the old movies, like The Mummy.

The original The Mummy movie was released in 1932. Remakes have followed. In 1959 and 1999 remakes were issued and don't forget The Mummy Returns in 2001.

According to IMDb, "The film's poster holds

the record for the most money paid for a movie poster

at auction: more than $453,500."

Bela Lugosi was the original (and the best, I think!) Dracula. That movie was released in 1931. But remakes were also released in 1979 and 1992 as well as plenty of spinoffs like the TV movie released in 2002 and the TV show in 2013.

      @Pam Irie: You're right. They can be a bit lame but are still cool, I think!

      Being an antique dealer, I read an article on how much some of these original posters brought at auction. Monster ones brought a lot o money. Even some movies that bombed, the posters brought insane amounts.

      They're classics that just happen to be creepy too, but I gotta say the classic monsters are also pretty cheesy compared to todays monsters. ha
