When going in to see a scary movie, you usually know what you're getting, not just because you've seen the trailer or heard the buzz, but because the posters advertising the movie are completely terrifying.
The poster for the upcoming horror flick "The Last Exorcism Part II" is one of the freakiest, and the sight of Ashley Bell bending backwards (really, really backwards) inspired us to go searching for other posters that are just as creepy as the movies. We've learned that if you want to make someone have nightmares before they even step into the theater, be sure to include eerie children, missing body parts or creepy crawlies on the poster.
We recommend keeping a light on as you flip through these photos.
When it comes to horror films, Americans must humbly bow their heads and concede defeat to their international brethren. Sure, Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, George Romero and others deserve all the accolades they've received, but as the below films prove, clever horror knows no American territoriality.
Eerie houses, ghost eyes, and sadistic doctors can be found anywhere.

Vampires, organ transfers, and "special friendships" between James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart!?
This week's new releases in DVD and Blu-Ray include "Let Me In," "Never Let Me Go," and "Welcome to the Rileys." And Brigitte recommends watching this remix by Pogo to get pumped for watching the new release of Disney's animated "Alice in Wonderland" on Blu-Ray!
"Let Me In" did the impossible upon its theatrical release last fall. It proved that remakes don't have to suck.
Back in 2008, a Swedish child vampire chiller by the name of "Let the Right One In" hit the art house circuit and quickly developed a loyal following among genre fans. Restrained, haunting and ultimately moving, it was everything modern American horror films aren't. Naturally Hollywood came calling.
I must confess – I genuinely think 2010 was a good year in movies.
Of course, I'm not simply basing that on a series of obviously stellar performances and the number of films deserving of awards recognition. And I'm not making my list after staring at a bunch of pundits' thoughts on the matter.
My favorite movies are ones that either make me feel something real and physical (and not just that sense of "I'm so smart. I saw that little indie") or that I'm inclined to watch over and over. Better yet, I like my movies to do both, and it's a tall order.
So sure, I really enjoyed and appreciated "The King's Speech" and "The Social Network" – I'm an Aaron Sorkin fan, after all – but they didn't make enough of an emotional impact and I can't picture myself popping the disc into my Blu-ray player on a snowy January night. These, however, are another story: Get More »

From thrilling new installments in the behemoth "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" franchises to fascinating prestige films that mined gold from surprising sources like Facebook and ballet, here are our picks for the very best of the best of 2010. Get More »
When you think of actors with a penchant for dark and twisty movies, we doubt you'll name Kodi Smit-McPhee.
You should. And you definitely will soon.
The 14-year-old star of "Let Me In" is earning raves for his role as Owen, the deeply lonely victim of ceaseless bullying who befriends a vampire. Get More »

Vampires aren't the first creatures to conjure up images of cuddly bears and kittens. They feast on human blood to sustain their lives. They have a penchant for sporting fangs when enervated. And you know, they're essentially dead.
But as evidenced by our list below (that includes Chloe Grace Moretz, a.k.a. Hit-Girl, in the new buzzed-about horror remake "Let Me In"), there are some cute little vampires to be found among the legions of bloodsuckers who have made their way to the screen.
Come on, tell us these adorable little monsters don't make you go Awwwwww. Get More »
"Slumdog Millionaire." "Brokeback Mountain." "Precious." What do these flicks have in common -- aside from their respective Oscar wins?
