(1961) the curse of the werewolf

Today I am appreciating the art of the old fashioned movie posters made about Werewolves. I think this poster rather inspires a doomed gothic romance by the look of it. Check out this movie poster below from the 1961 movie The Curse of the Werewolf.

It’s gothic and romantic with the trees on a full moon night in the background and the beast carrying the beautiful woman with red lips and gown dress. You also get a sense of the tension and action to come as the mob at the bottom of the movie poster raise their flaming torches in protest. The title font, is also rather cool for the fact taht the yellow makes us think of moonbeams and night and the style of it looks like scratchy wood that might be found in a dark forest at night, or in a wooden cabin in the woods…ohhhh.
