3 of the Best Horror Movies Posters of All Time

Best Horror Movie Posters of All Time

Never judge a book by its cover, they said, but little did they know that it doesn’t hold true in the case of horror movies! The first thing we look at before watching a horror film (or any film for that matter) is its poster. And to some extent, we decide whether the film has the potential to spook us out or not by having one good look at its poster. Horror movies have always entertained us and they have the power to tell stories that don’t have all things sugar and sweet in them!

Horror is a genre that will always offer something new, despite its script having blood and blood, deformed bodies, cool-induced musical scores, and all sorts of scary elements. And as filmmakers continue to explore the genre, we have more reason to entertain ourselves. The posters have mostly forced us to watch movies and here we have a list of fifteen horror movies including some old posters, some classics, and some 80s horror movie posters.

Here is our list of the 3 best Horror Movies Posters of All Time

The Exorcist (1973)

The Exorcist (1973)


This William Friedkin movie, which was the first ever horror movie to be nominated at the Oscars, has an iconic poster that’s not very easy to forget! With a story that is deeply etched in our minds and the effects that had us biting our nails in fear, the poster of the film had the silhouette of the protagonist dressed in formals, complete with a hat, standing in total darkness in front of a villa, with only a ray of light focused on him. The black and misty background reflects the horror genre perfectly and adds to the spooky atmosphere, and quite like the movie, gives us the chills!

The Evil Dead (1981)

The Evil Dead (1981)


Written and directed by Sam Raimi, ‘The Evil Dead’ was a story of five friends, who go vacationing in the woods and land in a haunted cabin for the night, only to end up being killed one after another, by an ominous entity that forces them to do so. Raimi’s film had too much blood and gore and morbid scenes in the screenplay, which were enough to frighten us, and the poster too, created the same effect. A girl in tattered clothes is being pulled into the earth by an undead hand and that was when we realized the evil is not dead yet!

The Babadook (2014)

The Babadook (2014)


When this Australian psychological horror film was released in the country, it didn’t taste successful and was panned by the critics until it went to the Sundance Festival and garnered the world’s attention. The film tells the story of a single mother to a six-year-old, whose life turns upside down when the son wants her to read to him from a mysterious pop-up storybook. When the book is opened, it brings with it more troubles for the duo. The film’s poster depicted a monster popping out of an open door, as the boy looked on, worried. The film became one of the most well-received films of the year and its poster managed to leave a lasting impression too.
