Remake Or Original: A Horror Poster Face-Off
Vote for your favourite horror artwork
It's a truism that horror remakes are rarely as good as their predecessors. However, in one area they occasionally surpass the original, and that's in their poster art. Since they're able to capitalise on the most eye-catching and iconic imagery of the films that everyone already knows, some of these remake promos are better than anything that the (superior) original film produced. But let's put it to the test: we've gathered some of the best posters for both originals and remakes, so that you can vote for your favourite...
