This list is directly inspired by a post I did a few months back that featured 11 Alternate Horror Posters from Thailand. As I was looking this over last night and enjoying the artwork once again, I thought, “well of course there’s a sh*tload more of these out there.” They don’t only have to be from Thailand. So this morning I did some digging and found a few more that I liked.
There’s something about an alternate poster for a movie you love, especially if it’s a one-sheet you’ve never seen before. It can give you a little extra boost, some new imagery that you already have a positive association with. A foreign poster can also be a cool window into how other cultures experience (and market) your favorite films.
The great thing about this is that you never run out of them. There’s tons of horror movies and even more countries to release them in. So, every once in a while, let’s check in and see what comes up. If you come across something to share, send it to
email@example.com, and if we use it we’ll credit you in the piece!
In the meantime, head inside to check out a gallery of foreign posters for The Thing, Return Of The Living Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge, The Cabin In The Woods and Halloween. I particularly like how the Japanese Halloween poster at least as much English text in the image as the American one.
