Top 5 best and worst horror movie taglines
- “You may not believe in ghosts, but you cannot deny terror.” – The Haunting (1963)
This tagline’s actually true. Ghosts could be fake (I believe in them) but terror is very, very real.
- “To avoid fainting, keep repeating, it’s only a movie.” – The Last House on the Left
Not only is it a great tagline, it is also a great tip I always use when I’m scared watching a film.
- “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” – The Fly
You should be.
- “A nice American family. They didn’t want to kill. But they didn’t want to die.” – The Hills Have Eyes
The tagline is bleak, chilling and shows that people become monsters themselves in dangerous situations.
- “Good morning! You are one day closer to the end of the world!” – The Omen
This tagline is perfect. It’s bleak, unsettling and darkly comic.
- “In space no one can hear you scream” – Alien
This tagline is only scary if you are in space.
- “This summer terror won’t be taking a vacation.” – Halloween H20: 20 Years Later
Not only is the tagline forgettable as whole, the film also takes place in Halloween (autumn).
- “Every year young people disappear” – Tourist Trap
The tagline is just extremely forgettable.
- “Evil gets an upgrade” – Jason X
This tagline is just so forgettable and terrible it makes the movie itself look like a masterpiece (trust me – it’s not).
- “Sea Evil” – Ghost Ship
This is the worst pun I’ve ever heard. This won’t be giving you sleepless nights anytime soon.
