80s Thai Horror Movie Posters Will Melt Your FaceS

In the 1980s, painted movie ads were the norm in Thailand. These exquisitely creepy collages didn't just divulge important plot points to audiences... they were scarier than the movies themselves.


Like Ghana
, Thailand is one of those nations where the painted movie poster was an art form unto itself. Here are some of the best Thai horror posters from the decade. They range from simply quirky to weapons-grade nightmare fuel. Don't gaze at these too long, lest your rods and cones atrophy in fright.
