Last night (September 4), Jamie Lee Curtis took to her Twitter account to reveal a brand new poster for the upcoming Halloween movie. Taking place after the original, and forgetting all of the sequels that followed it, the film will see Curtis' character Laurie Strode go up against Michael Myers once again, following his escape from the prison in which he's been confined for four decades.
With a new trailer set to drop today (September 5), we're in the mood for looking back at some of the biggest and best horrors to have hit the big screen throughout the years. Not just that though; we'll be looking at their movie posters, and picking out 6 more of our favourites that had us scared before we'd even watched a minute of the scary flicks!
6. Rosemary's Baby (1968)
What's more harrowing than a baby's carriage, sitting gloomily against the eerie backdrop of its supposed mother? Not many things, which is why we just had to include Rosemary's Baby on our list!
5. Jaws (1975)
One of the main fears millions across the globe have when it comes to taking a dip in the ocean is being eaten alive by a shark. It's one of the rarest occurrences, but the very fact it could happen to any of us and there's not much we could do about it is a genuinely frightful thing. Jaws took that fear, and escalated it to bigger heights than we'd ever seen before. This poster portrays that perfectly.
4. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
The late Wes Craven is a true legend of the horror genre. In bringing his villainous Freddy Krueger to life in the Nightmare on Elm Street film series, he terrified all those watching, with some even refusing to go to sleep in case they met the big bad in their dreams. This poster is a classic, and one we can never forget.
3. Saw (2004)
The Saw franchise may not have ended up on its best footing after a series of sequels, but the original film will go down in history as breaking the horror mould and daring to do something truly different. Audiences knew what they were in for when this poster dropped, but little did they know it would elude to the film's final sequence.
2. Scream 4 (2011)
Wes Craven's Scream franchise is one that perhaps should have ended as a trilogy, but we couldn't help but get excited when a fourth film was announced. This poster is simple and to the point, showcasing the iconic Ghostface mask from the movies, and promising characters would meet the pointy end of the killer's favourite weapon all over again.
1. Carrie (2013)
The actual film may not be close to being as good as the original, but this poster for the Carrie remake let fans know they were in for much of the same with the reboot.
Halloween comes to cinemas across the UK on October 19, 2018.
