In the days before Internet & Photoshop, the makers of schlocky movies had to get pretty inventive trying to sell their product. This resulted in some fantastic, but wildly misleading posters:

It isn't so much that the movie is so bad, but what could match the awesomeness of that poster. (And let's be honest, Clint never actually looked like this.)

Haha I was hoping someone would mention R.O.T.O.R.!!
I'd never seen that LONE RANGER one before; I really like it!

I guess all the Star Wars prequels have pretty neat posters.

Then there's this:

The poster to Death Machines is awesome; the actual Death Machines movie is as bad or is worse than R.O.T.O.R., which is really saying something. I dunno why Brad hasn't reviewed Death Machines yet, if there was ever a movie born to be snobbed it's that one.

^ I love that He-Man movie.

Here's another film I like, but I had to add, because so many others say the poster is the best thing about the film. I'd also love to see Brad review this.

It was drawn by H.R. Giger, the man who designed the Xenomorph in ALIEN (1979).

My local movie theater threw away 2 posters of the supernatural horror film "The Forest". It's about the infamous Aokigahara forest in Japan.
