The Dorothy Collective's "Horror Star Chart" depicts 135 of cinema's most iconic horror films as constellations, the constituent stars of which take their names from actors and filmmakers who lent their talents to each title.


A nice touch: The chart is based on the stars visible in the Berlin sky the night of March 4, 1922, during the premier of F.W. Murnau's silent vampire film, Nosferatu. Other titles featured include:

...those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance and a few personal favourites including: early silent films (The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Nosferatu and The Phantom Of The Opera), Universal Monsters from the 30's featuring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy), Hammer classics (Dracula and Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter), forerunners of the slasher sub genre in the 60's (Peeping Tom and Psycho), supernatural thrillers of the 70's (The Exorcist, The Omen, Carrie), video 'nasties' vilified by the media in the 80's (Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Evil Dead) through to the recent Zombie revival (28 Days Later).

The Dorothy Collective has a few other versions of the Horror Star Chart available. Some even glow in the dark. Check them out here.
