Never judge a book by its cover, they said, but little did they know that it doesn’t hold true in 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 is 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!
Despite featuring blood and gore, mutilated bodies, musical scores that send a chill down our spine and all sorts of fear-inducing things in their screenplay, horror is a genre that will always have something fresh to deliver. And as long as filmmakers continue to explore this genre, we will have more reasons to get entertained. Posters have mostly compelled us to watch films and here we have a list of fifteen horror movies with some vintage posters, some classic and some 80s horror movie posters.
15. Paranormal Activity (2007)
Directed by first timer Oren Peli, ‘Paranormal Activity’ had instantly become the talk of the town once its trailers were out. The film not only managed to scare the common audiences, but also a person like Steven Spielberg, who took great interest in horror stories, due to some of his spooky childhood experiences. The film, which was the story of a couple, who after having haunting experiences in their new home, start filming the paranormal activity only to find out there’s more than what meets the eye. The poster of the film depicted a couple in a camera recording, spooked out in their bed, pointing towards an ominous figure on their door. The poster was what had actually stirred the audiences’ interest in the film!
