    I collect movie posters. I absolutely love them. Every year, my family members (there's 6 of us) each choose a poster and we mount them in some frames we made. The 6 frames in our movie room are interchanged with different movie posters periodically.

    Well, we decided to get some new posters for the Halloween season just around the corner. My question for you is what is your favorite movie poster with a halloween style theme? I have been looking at a few and have some good picks, but I figure I could get some great ideas here.

    Use the following link to search for pictures of the posters you are thinking of.

    When we pick the movies we go for style of the poster first and then for quality of the movie second.

    I'll post some of my picks later. Happy hunting (or should I say 'haunting' - sorry bad pun.)

    I should probably post the ones that I already have so that there aren't repeats. I own the following:

    not exactly "haloween" per se, but masters of poster design the Stenberg Brothers made some incredible posters in the early 20th century. they do not really have Halloween in 1920's and '30's russia as far as i know, but these are kind of eerie and moody.

    Surely there's a Tim Burton movie out there with a Halloween theme.

    Or maybe I just gave Tim Burton an awesome movie idea, and he should give me a percentage of the profits once he makes it.

    Some great posts so far guys. I am going to have to fix my links when I get home. For the record, the ones that I already have are:
    1)The Nightmare Before Christmas
    2)Halloween (The one with the multiple knife blades that turn into a Jack o Lantern - very cool)
    3)Friday the 13th
    4)Pirates of the Caribbean (The skeleton at the helm of the ship)
    5)Batman Begins
    6)Night of the Living Dead

    Shecky - I like those posters a lot. Are they Russian Movies? These need to be movies because they are hung in an entertainment room.

    Also, note that I am looking for movie posters and not posters of movies if that makes any sense. For instance, the movie poster for Pulp Fiction has Uma Thurman in a car reading a book and holding a cigarette, but there are posters that float around of Pulp Fiction that just has a still from the movie, like a picture of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson holding their guns out.

    I know, I'm picky, but that's the way it is.

    I really like what I have seen so far. I knew I could count on this community to come up with some great stuff.

    yes they are all movies, and they show how movie posters can be actual great design as opposed to the derivative crap 99.5% of movie posters are today.

    if you want to look at real posters, check out www.internationalposter.com and if you get to Boston, check it out. bring a lot (a LOT) of money of you plan on buying anything tho :)
