The Craziest Classic Monster Movie Posters


Halloween is right around the corner and nothing gets us in the spooky spirit more than a great horror film. The monster movies of the 1950s and ‘60s were full of charming low-budget visuals, unearthly protagonists influenced by the Atomic era, and hilarious titles.
