What does A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Omen and The Evil Dead all have in common? Yes of course they are all horror movies but have you ever noticed the font they use to write their names on posters? Scary, isn’t it?

Of course a horror movie cannot use a font Disney uses for its logo. That would look out of sync and may end up casting an impression that it is not a horror flick at all. People may confuse the movie to belong to the genre of the Scary Movie types – half comedy, half horror.

I am not suggesting for a moment that using a scary font for a horror movie (or book or comic or whatever) will make it a big hit. But I am suggesting that the font plays its own important role.

Below we have collected 45 Gothic fonts which we think are the best of the horror genre. If you are a designer and get frequent clients who work in the horror industry then these fonts will prove a great help to you.

As you can see each font’s name is hyperlinks to a web page. Click on the one which you want to download and you will be taken to the respective download page from which you can download the font set.
