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.

      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
