A History of Horror by Harnois75 A History of Horror by Harnois75
In 1973 a book was published called 'A Pictorial History of Horror Movies' by Denis Gifford, (do an image search on google for the title and you will find the book cover art) This book became my essential reference guide to horror films. In a nod towards the original I present an updated version. It's taken me nearly three weeks to paint it all, I hope you like. There are fifty titles featured - can you name them?

brilliant image, but does King Kong really count as a horror (infact there a few that are questionable)

Probably not. The original Pictorial History of Horror (1973) featured more of the familiar classic horrors on the front cover and a wider range of genre characters on the back, including Harryhausen films and Raquel Welch from One Million Years BC amongst others, so I went for a similar flavour to the wraparound cover for a 2014 revamp.

Just fantastic...really impressive details. Have seen a few of these highly detailed horror icon collages on Deviantart, been planning on trying one myself in fact, but this is the best I've seen so far.
