Gallery o' Slasher Movie Title Screens, Part Two!

Here we go, more slasher movie title screens! Now, if you may reaaaallll close attention to detail, you may notice a trend amongst these.

Oh, and if some of them look all cruddy, it's because they are- some of them I've only got on VHS and I had to resort to photographing the TV. I'm not so bad that I'd cut off a title, though- believe me, Curtains did that all by itself. For the record, both that movie and The Burning are red font on a black background. Ah, the sometimes-pain-in-the-ass-i-ness of lo-fi...

Clearly Carpenter’s Halloween title was massively influential. It’s the class of yesterday’s. That said, the glowing-orange-on-black titles makes a heck of a lot less sense on a bunch of these than on one with a jack-o'-lantern.

Beautiful stuff. Tourist Trap was the first DVD I bought. I love how off-kilter that movie is.

I myself am a big fan of the dripping blood letters which I saw for the first time in H.G. Lewis' Blood Feast (1963).
