A classic poster for a classic horror film. The font is very distinctive and is an outlined version of Serif Gothic Black:

The word ‘He’ is slightly enlarged and italicised on the poster, but you get the idea…

Compacta Light (with some extra condensing!) makes a perfect font for film credits where you need to cram everyone’s name in but still keep it pretty legible…(triple spacing has been used between each word to help with legibility).

although I would guess an ‘extra light’ version has been used on the original poster.
