25 Creepy Horror Movie Posters

As fans of horror movies and art, we thought you'd also enjoy this list of 25 creepy horror movie posters with us. In no other film genre are the posters more abundant and often strikingly beautiful, while at the same time ferociously chilling, than Horror. When a company wants to one-up either themselves or the last company’s artistic attempt to scare someone, they roll out the most hideous and unrelenting pieces of art imaginable. But there are limits, at least to what you’re able to show the pubic in theaters. But that doesn’t mean envelopes can’t be pushed. Enjoy!

Alice-Sweet-Alice
Alice, Sweet Alice
(1977)

I think what shocks the most about this poster is both the butcher knife in the baby doll’s back, and the empty-eyed mask at the bottom of the grocery bag. It just screams slasher film, and the film itself is pretty damn brutal, too.

Antropophagus
The Anthropophagus Beast
(1980)

This movie is absolutely revolting in a couple of parts. Perhaps it might do you well to look up the word. I’ll wait. There ya go, basically a cannibal. So, in the final scene (I’ll spare you the description of the first), the beast is dispatched with an ax, but before he succumbs to death, he tries to eat himself. That’s the image you get here on the poster.

funhouse
The Funhouse
(1981)

This poster appears on a lot of ‘Best-Of’s’ pretty much for the same reason: a demonic monster with a wicked hair-lip, disgusting teeth, and a rivulet of discolored drool. It’s enough to make you turn away.

howling
The Howling
(1981)

As werewolf movies go (and they do go… ), the Howling is easily one of the best. The poster is rife with horrific imagery, especially the ripped (flesh?) background hiding the screaming woman. Very nice.

happy_birthday_to_me
Happy Birthday To Me
(1981)

Boy, 1981 was a good year for Horror!. Anyway, this one stars everyone’s favorite blind Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie as a bat-shit crazy chick bent on revenge. And boy is the revenge sweet. The scene where they’re all sitting, dead, at the dinner table is just classic. In the poster we see but one way a victim is dispatched.

10 Horror Movies You Possibly Missed

Horror fans can’t be pleased about the state of the blood-soaked genre. Hollywood seems more interested in cranking out tepid remakes and reboots of classic horror movies (see the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street) rather than surprising us with something original.

The shock success of Paranormal Activity in 2009 stands as a rare - and welcome - exception.

Plenty of smart and creepy horror films have come out in recent years, but there’s a good chance they never played at a theater near you. No matter, since the DVD shelves are a fine place to discover some buried horror treasures.

Consider these 10 films the next time you’re in the mood for a good fright and want to steer clear of another mindless slasher film.

1. Splinter (2008)

The setup is simple. Two couples seek shelter in a convenience store after someone - or something - attacks them. The dynamic between the couples provides its own sense of danger, but so, too, does the mysterious creature slamming itself against the store’s window front trying to break in. The clever visual effects leave audiences unsure exactly what’s trying to gobble up the protagonists, and you’ll be rooting for the film’s heavy, played with gusto by Shea Whigham.

2. Eden Lake (2008)

This British chiller follows a couple eager for a romantic camping trip. What they stumble onto is a pack of unruly teenagers who terrorize them at every turn. Lake doesn’t need monsters or vampires to leave us breathless. It’s the thought of everyday kids running amok that does the trick.

Late Night Burger King Horror with Freddy, Jason, Chucky and Ghost Face

Freddy Krueger - Burger King
by Seth Metoyer

You'd think that Freddy would have something against flame-broiled meaty goodness, yet, here he is along with other horror icons ordering some late night Burger King.

Advertising agency 'Tonic' is using four of horror's heaviest hitters to promote Burger King’s late-night hours. Here's what the creative advertising agency had to say about the creepy campaign.

"We were asked to communicate that Burger King stays open until the wee hours of the morning. Thomas and Kris came up with the following campaign showing the villains of the night that we know all to well, enjoying their favourite meal after a umm night out. The ads were shot in South Africa and Dubai by French photographer Ben Dauchez and retouched by Thomas himself. A job well done! The series comprises of four ads which will run in press and outdoor."

“Open late. Now open until 4AM every night. Burger King. Have it your way.”

Advertising Agency: Tonic, Dubai, UAE
Creative Director: Vincent Raffray
Art Director: Thomas Derouault
Copywriter: Kris Richardson
Photographer: Ben Dauchez

The Wolfman Coming to Blu-Ray and DVD

The Wolfman Coming to Blu-Ray and DVD

Home Media Magazine reports that Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release the horror thriller 'The Wolfman', starring Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt, on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, VOD and digitally June 1.

The film, which is a remake of Universal Pictures’ original 1941 classic, The Wolf Man, with Lon Chaney Jr., generated $62 million at the domestic box office ($75 million internationally) since its theatrical release Feb. 12.

Both the DVD and Blu-ray releases include the theatrical and unrated director’s cut from Joe Johnston.

Unique to the Blu-ray edition, consumers will be able to stream the original 1941 film via BD Live; pocket BLU apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Blackberry and Android; and PC, Mac and Web-enabled Blu-ray player at www.UniversalHiDef.com.

The Blu-ray also features two exclusive alternate endings and a digital copy of the film that can be viewed on an array of electronic and portable devices.

Special features include “Return of The Wolfman,” which examines how the film’s creative team re-purposed the tragic roots of legend and cinematic lore for today’s audience, and “The Beast Maker,” which looks at how makeup wizard Rick Baker transformed a classic monster into a modern nightmare.

The Walking Dead to Creep onto AMC

The Walking Dead on AMC

Mediaweek.com reports that the struggle for survival is what makes zombie infestation such a reliable source of entertainment; as much as an undead cannibal apocalypse is mathematically hopeless, it’s in our nature to cheer on our ever-dwindling human tribe.

Such is the impetus that drives AMC’s newest original series project, The Walking Dead. Based on the 66-part comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead will shuffle onto AMC this October.

AMC has ordered six episodes of The Walking Dead, which follows a shrinking core of survivors in an America that has inexplicably given rise to a terrifying zombie outbreak. The series will be faithful to the source material, which is in many ways as smart and provocative as AMC’s signature original fare.

“The brilliant thing about The Walking Dead is that Kirkman literally wrote the story as an antidote to all zombie movies, good or bad,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s svp of programming, production and digital content. “The problem with zombie movies is there’s always a need to have some ham-fisted conceit to explain how the outbreak began. The Walking Dead doesn’t concern itself with root causes. It focuses on the band of survivors, offering the human drama and social commentary you’d find in any survival story.”

While a zombie plague can make for some gory goings-on, AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead won’t exactly be a splatter fest. “The title of the series actually refers to the survivors, which should tell you who this show is really all about,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “One of the reasons we fell in love with the project is that it we could see it would make for great episodic television ... and it will be advertiser friendly.”

Dead Snow Movie Review

Dead Snow Movie ReviewBy Seth Metoyer

Dead Snow (starring horror genre actor Bill Oberst Jr.)is a stylish and clever Zombie splatterfest directed by Tommy Wirkola. This Foreign Horror Film treats its viewers to a band of blood thirsty Nazi Zombies and enough gore and entrails for all to feast upon.

The Norwegian dialect wasn’t much of a distraction for me since I tend to watch movies with subtitles regularly. The actors of Dead Snow were cast well and the storyline was as fresh as the soundtrack. The Zombie makeup and movie effects is top notch, with only a few notable cases of visible discrepancies (one being a characters arm noticeably tucked in his shirt after it was sawed off with a chainsaw).

The film dialogue made some pleasant references to older horror movies such as Friday the 13th, Evil Dead 1 and 2, and the 1984 version of April Fool’s Day. Other fun moments in the film were when the characters play a game of Twister (remarking that it’s a Hollywood game) and there was also a wonderfully bizarre “outhouse” sex scene that I’ve by no means seen before in a movie.

Additionally, I enjoyed the historic looking Nazi uniforms and thought it was interesting to see the Zombies move faster than in other Zombie films. In my opinion Dead Snow ranks amongst the top 20 of all Zombie movies.

Dead Snow Movie Trailer

Plot (Caution: Spoiler Alert)

Dead Snow (Norwegian Død snø) is a Norwegian comedy horror film, starring, among others, Charlotte Frogner, Stig Frode Henriksen, Bjørn Sundquist, Ane Dahl Torp and Jenny Skavlan. It is directed by Tommy Wirkola.
A woman (Ane Dahl Torp) is being chased through the snows of Norway. She is ultimately cornered and eaten by zombies in World War II Nazi uniforms.

Seven medical students on Easter vacation arrive at a small cabin near Øksfjord, about a 45-minute walk from the road where they have left their cars. The cabin is owned by Sara, Vegard's (Lasse Valdal) girlfriend. She has been skiing across the mountains to meet them, but has not yet arrived.
