Six Pix: Sci-Fi Horrors

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

This time we highlight scary Sci-Fi films.

Classic horror movies

Included are: Galaxy Of Terror (1981); Astro-Zombies (1968); Alien (1979); Attack Of The 50 Ft. Woman (1958); Not Of This Earth (1957); and The Thing (1982).

What choices! I absolutely love all of these posters! From the colorful freak-out of Astro-Zombies to the menacing simplicity of Alien (not to mention the chilling tag line), each one is a winner in my book. But if pressed to choose a favorite I’d have to choose Galaxy Of Terror. There’s no way the film could ever live up to the lurid scene depicted on the one-sheet but damn if it doesn’t make me want to watch the film to find out—and isn’t that what a movie poster is supposed to do?

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
