Voluptuous Terrors 2 Art Book Review

Warning : The following post contains nudity/adult content.

Voluptuous Terrors 2 explores classic Italian film poster designs that sprang forth from the post-war period through to the 1980s, focusing on exploitation/Sexploitation and the horror genres, often with compositions almost invariably including curvaceous female figures in jeopardy, juxtaposed with the iconography of fantasy and terror.

The visual style of the art work featured in this art book is much similar to two other books I’ve reviewed previously – Sex And Horror – The Art Of Emanuele Taglietti, and Sex And Horror – The Art Of Alessandro Biffignandi. The misogynistic themes of the films featured in the book would certainly be of contention today, but the intrinsic quality and composition of the art work bought forth by the talented artists is much less of a debate.

The bold eroticism of these art works can seldom be found in commercial film posters these days, even those for horror films, and this art book is a great way to appreciate and reminisce an esoteric cinematic visual style for film poster art that has passed on and will never return. Recommended.

Also do check out Voluptuous Terrors (volume 1), which has a stronger focus on the science fiction theme.
