Click to Discover #1

And just to mention I went back to some of the titles and added who the key designer was. Titles such as All About Eve, Attack of the 50ft Woman, Sullivan's Travels and a few others had "Unknown Designer" attached to them, but I have since discovered who did it so I've edited that. I wish I could find out who did all the designs, alas, some of that information is just not out there where I can find it.

The suspense is KILLING me!

I'm going to guess some horror/sci-fi thing? A very genre-y film, at the very least. I can't wait to see!

I'm also guessing a horror film, but as to which it could be, I don't know. Hitchcock's Psycho is a great film with a lousy poster, so it's anyone's guess really...

I love this!

It makes posters from now look so dull: face/s + names + title it almost hurts.

(yes, the same one as in Nathaniel's blog)
