In the 1980s, he became one of the best-known European artists of cinema posters. In his long career Sciotti worked on many films directed by Lucio Fulci, like The House by the Cemetery, Manhattan Baby and A Cat in the Brain and also with other directors like Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, David Lynch, George Romero, David Webb Peoples and the Coen brothers.[2][7]
