Countdown: The Top 20 American Horror Movie Posters--#10

[For the previous entry, click here.]

#10. Grindhouse

This double-feature poster is twice as delightful.  The overall layout (I love the black-and-red color scheme) conveys a terrific retro vibe, capturing the spirit of the grindhouse era.  The images for the individual films are nothing less than arresting: Rose McGowan's deadly prosthetic; the black muscle car rushing dead on, away from a horizon lined with sultry silhouettes.  Unabashedly hyperbolic, the poster promises incredible bang for the moviegoer's buck, and that faux film strip running across the bottom provides a tantalizing sneak peek at the heap of cinematic eye candy in store.
