Officially Cool: Movie Posters From An Alternate Universe

What if William Shatner had played Dare Devil in a 1970s exploitation flick? What if Alfred Hitchcock had gotten the idea for Halloween and made it with Kim Novak and Robert Mitchum? What if Mickey Rourke played Superman?

These are the questions that haunt me in the moments just before I close my eyes to go to bed. Fortunately, someone else out there is even more obsessed with the possible worlds out there where Boris Karloff was Freddy Krueger (and the resulting movie posters).

Over at Hartter there’s a collection of some of the posters for these alternate moving pictures. We’ve included just 6 of our favorites here, but there are about 30 or so on the site.

There are some clever plays here for the seasoned film trivia fan, but for the most part they are relics from a time that never existed. Antiques from a false history.

Very, very cool.

Which one is your favorite?
