35 Horror Movie Posters that will Give You the Creeps

Inspiration October 21, 2011

With so many horror flicks coming out every year especially during Halloween season, you’re bound to catch one that will bore you. Let’s face it, majority of these new horror movies follow a plot and formula that you’ve already seen before. There will be times when you’ll be more horrified with the movie’s story and dialogue than the actual “ghost.”  The cool special effects and realistic makeup can’t even take your attention off all the nonsense that’s taking place. In fact, you’ll find some movie trailers more terrifying and exciting than the actual film. Heck, even posters can do a better job.

Horror Movie Posters work similarly to trailers in the sense that they’ll  generate fear, but still leave something to the imagination. Designers use the most frightening images of the movie’s antagonist, creative interpretations of the motif or ghastly shots of the afflicted protagonists to come up with posters that can bring chills down your spine. Don’t believe me? Turn off the lights and checkout our collection of 35 creepy Horror Movie Posters from an assortment of films that produced mixed results in the box office. Oh, I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

 

And by the way, who’s that little girl standing right behind you?
