    Inspired by the DVD Cover Art Tournament, and since it is nearing Halloween, I thought it would be fun to have a horror poster art tournament. Before we do though, just to make it fair, we should all gather up lists of our favorite horror poster art, and then battle them against each other. Also, please note that "horror poster art" does not mean DVD cover art. Your selections must be from the original theatrical poster for the film.

    HERE IS THE LIST OF POSTERS. I'LL UPDATE THIS POST WITH EVERY PASSING ROUND SO YOU ALL CAN KEEP TRACK.
