The 50 Greatest Horror Movie Posters of All Time
Like all advertising, posters for horror films seek to ensnare our attention so that we buy the product they're selling. Unlike other genres, though, horror offers a greater creative sandbox for designers, illustrators, and advertisers to play in.

Here are 50 of the best that history has to offer, presented in alphabetical order and supplied with designer credit whenever possible.
