The second word in our title is written in handwriting, which is more typical to horror movies and suggest a psychopath actually wrote it himself, with blood. We decided to go with an optimistically named font — “Chiller” (costs 29,00 USD to download). Also, just chose a red / scarlet hue of your choice and apply a light gradient, to give the font more depth.
That’s all, really. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and it will help you to create something beautiful for yourself, your family or friends.
