Retro Poster: "Murders in the Zoo" (1933)

Many horror movie posters of the 1930's and 40's share a lot of the same characteristics and "Murders in the Zoo" is no different. Bright and bold fonts contrast with dark backgrounds and hand painted illustrations of the film's stars make posters from this time period a favorite for many horror nerds. In "Murders in the Zoo," Lionel Atwill stars as Eric Gorman, a wealthy and jealous zookeeper who catches his wife cheating on him. He will stop at nothing to keep her all to himself, even if that means having his zoo animals kill for him. Despite being almost 80 years old, the movie has no problem being horrific and gruesome and still holds up pretty well today.
