Countdown: The Top 20 American Horror Movie Posters--#6

[For the previous entry on the countdown, click here.]

Poster art has never been pulpier than in this 1950's offering (The colors, man, the colors!).  I love the 3-dimensional quality of the lurid scene depicted here, with the pincered female hanging in the foreground and the rest of the outsized crustacean looming in the background.  Sure, the movie's title sounds like some bizarro Sex Ed video, but the overall effect of this poster is definitely attention-grabbing.
