Mind-Bending Czech Posters for American Movies


Looking at these Czech movie posters from the Terry Posters website, by way of Dangerous Minds, it’s clear that Americans are doing it wrong. We imagine filmmakers like Terry Gilliam and Alejandro Jodorowsky would approve of these kaleidoscopic designs. The ghoulish artwork for Ghostbusters makes it look like an entirely different film. Iconic film characters, such as a t-shirt-clad James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, have been transformed into psychedelic alter egos. Most of the posters were created in the 1960s and ‘70s (though most of the films were created decades before that), which explains the technicolor palette. Take a trip, the mind-bending kind, below.
