Cult Movie Cards
Ace Ventura, King Kong, the Alien Queen, Jack Torrance… What’s the deal? A beautifully illustrated deck of playing cards inspired by cult movies. Created by us. Funded by Kickstarter. Designed for fans.
"A celebration of those movies and characters that will forever live on in the hearts of fans."
- Our team has been making art that celebrates cinema for almost a decade. We needed a new project that could help bring film out into the world.
- How could we create movie artwork that would actually be useful? An awesome deck of playing cards for people who love cinema as much as we do.
- The brainchild of our editorial director Jonathan Crocker, Cult Movie Cards is a deck of playing cards like no other: 54 cards inspired by a cult movie or a cult movie character.
- The project was announced on Kickstarter in summer 2014. To make the project possible, we asked backers to make a leap of faith on a product they wouldn’t see for months.
- Every single card was lovingly illustrated by our creative director Paul Willoughby, who created stunning representations of cinema’s most iconic heroes and villains.
- We secured USPCC approval for the deck – as used by the world’s best magicians and poker pros – ensuring they would be produced with the highest quality printing methods available.
- Cult Movie Cards were funded entirely on Kickstarter, with backers nearly doubling the project’s target without having even seen the finished deck.
- Praise for Cult Movie Cards poured in from Empire, ShortList, BBC Culture and even Oprah Winfrey’s O magazine!
- The Cult Movie Cards deck is available at cultmoviecards.com and continues to be cherished by movie fans around the world.
