Since I am Not Sleeping... A Little Halloween Inspiration.

My friend, Lindsay, convinced me to go see Paranormal Activity 2 on Saturday night. I knew it was a bad decision the moment I made it but I couldn't let her down, especially since I convinced Reid and her husband, Oren, to go as well. In all honesty, it wasn't bad as scary movies go. It wasn't too scary or too cheesy, there was no blood and guts, and when I left I honestly didn't think this movie was going to keep me up at night. I was bold until the lights went out later that night...

Since I was a little girl I have had a SERIOUSLY overactive imagination. Maybe it is because I am such a visual person, but the moment any image is locked in my mind I think about constantly. You can only imagine what happens when that image is one from a horror movie. Every time I think about it the plot gets scarier and scarier. For example, remember the ghost librarian from Ghost Busters??? She kept me up at night for weeks and wasn't even that scary.

Getting to the point...

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I would share some of my favorite horror and sci-fi posters from Alamo Drafthouse. Alamo Drafthouse is an icon in Austin, Texas. They show classic films as well as new releases, but what I know them for best is the posters they commission from great designers all over the country. I absolutely love each of them as designs, even if I can't watch most of the movie.

This one glows in the dark. Beautiful! Mondotees designed.

Also by Mondo.

This is another movie that scared me to death as a child, but the poster is stunning! Designed by Methane Studios.
