Sometimes the marketing of a movie becomes just as iconic as the movie itself.  Fonts are a big part of the branding. Hell I could have posted my grocery list for the week in the above font, and besides thinking “Wow this dude is gonna have a heart attack in 5 years,” you would of course know that it was the Back to the Future font.  So after seeing this font posted by the BTTF Facebook page (yeah I really love that movie), I got to thinking what are the best movie fonts out there? Well don’t worry because I’ve done the legwork for you and included links to download them!  (WARNING: Do not use these fonts to type your master’s thesis with…I learned that lesson the hard way.)  (more…)

The first film I’ll take a look at is Brian Yuzna’s Society. Yuzna is well-known among the horror community for his role as director and producer of a number of influential horror films of the 80’s and 90’s. He was involved with the Re-animator series and some of the Return of the Living Dead sequels, both of which are known for their off-beat and often campy humor (occasionally known within the genre as “splatstick”). He often paired with Screaming Mad George – a special effects wizard who took creature effects to a new level and continually upped the ante on gore. Even the most ridiculous horror films sometimes have a tendency to be self-serious, but Yuzna never succumbed to this and always preferred to have fun with his films, despite treading into some very dark territory.
