Chiller is a chaotic, reckless-looking typeface that looks as though it could have been scrawled in blood on a horror-movie poster. Its spiky, uneven forms seem to have been painted in a hurry with a sloppy brush; there are even ink splatters alongside some of the letters. As its name suggests, Chiller is a natural for Halloween.

British type designer Andrew Smith created Chiller in 1995 for International Typeface Corporation (ITC). Despite its apparently haphazard style, Chiller’s letters have all been carefully designed to be readable at both large and small sizes, whether in sentence case or set all in capital letters. Although Chiller has no heavier weights and no italic, it emphasizes words very effectively through its style alone.
