Film – Stills (Scary)

We have over 700 film stills spread throughout  37 “Film – Stills” subcategories in the Picture Collection. These folders are sub-categorized alphabetically, but there are also a hand-full of films that have their own folders:  Alien (1979), The Birds (1963), Black Hole (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Clash of the Titans (1981), Conan the Barbarian (1982-), Eraserhead (1977), Forbidden Planet (1956), Salem’s Lot (1979), Star Trek (1979-), Star Wars (1977-), Superman (1978-), The Thing (1951 & 1982), Wizard of Oz (1939).  etc.  Inside these folders you will find production stills, still-frames from the film, behind-the-scenes photographs, interviews with crew members, and segments from articles which once appeared in such acclaimed publications as Cinefantastique.  Below are a few  scary film stills, just in time for Halloween.
