Movie Poster Cliches – Face Above a House
A quick glimpse of a face provides us with lots of information about the person in front of us. Are they happy or sad? Do they want to rip the flesh from your bones? Are they levitating above a house? When it comes to posters, the latter is probably the most relevant, because if there is one thing we know about posters, it’s that faces love floating about. One of the popular Movie Poster Cliches of the 1980’s was to grab a building and then slap a big old face above it, looking down upon the viewer with gleeful disdain. The design thought process is that of power. By positioning a key character above everything else, it dwarfs the rest of the content and gives the key character a controlling position within the composition. And that is what we are looking at today, a collection of the best examples of big floaty heads above buildings in Horror Movie Posters. Here is Movie Poster Cliches – Face Above a House.
