Winner of the Least Scary Font for Horror Movie Title Card Ever Award

Serpent and the Rainbow!

I don’t remember the name of this kooky faux-African woodcut font (anyone?), but Taco Salad (kindly identified by Stewf) is the exact wrong typeface for this kind of thing. I typically see it attached to kid’s programs and ads for low-rent Caribbean packages. I’m having a hard time figuring out who thought this would communicate “scary” or “not featuring muppets”.

    Thank you! I couldn’t, for the life of me, find the name. Even WhatTheFont failed me.

    I seriously thought this was for a reggae band or something.
