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.

The horror genre is always the first to jump on the bandwagon of any sort of gimmick that gets butts in the seats. Life insurance policies, 3-D, found footage, "See Paris Hilton Die" ... but let's be honest: Nothing is a better sales tool than real life.
Slap the label "Based on a True Story" in ominous red letters on that poster, and you've got yourself a surefire scare flick. People say to themselves, "Well, if it could happen to those people ..." Hang on, though, because while a storyline may have at least one toe in the waters of fact, there are varying degrees of "true" in the horror game.
We're taking a gander at the best this gambit has to offer. You can be sure that whether they happened for truthsies or not, these nine shockers have what it takes to frighten you out of your jammies. Get More »
