The Worst Movie Posters

Let’s face it, some movie posters are truly memorable, while others are fairly forgettable. But some posters came out so awful, they just …sucks! This is handpicked gallery of stupid, weird, funny, and bad photoshopped posters. If you have any suggestion,or favourite poster, we will gladly add more posters to our gallery : )

The Poughkeepsie Tapes

How many times do we have to tell you poster people? It’s 1990s, not 1990’s. And if the grammatical error wasn’t bad enough, the picture of a bunch of VHS tapes dumped on a table is about as exciting as the last time we cleared out our loft.

The Informers

According to the source material, this is an edgy flick set in ’83 LA featuring movie executives, rock stars and a vampire.
According to the poster, it’s a remake of Mannequin. Did you know that The Informers stars the insanely beautiful Amber Heard? Not if all you’ve seen is this rubbish ad

The Rebound

We can’t decide which grosses us out more – the sight of some kid with a stripper’s knickers in his gob, or the fact that Catherine Zeta Jones’ face looks like something out of the third act of Brian Yuzna’s Society. Either way, we’ll be avoiding this one like Michael Douglas dodges coffins.

Race To Witch Mountain

Wow, cool! Helicopters! A spaceship! And… a taxi cab?! This has got to be the most unfair race in the world! And why are they racing to Witch Mountain, anyway? Is the prize Dwayne Johnson’s massive floating head? Or the Siamese twins that appear to be growing out of his ear? WE NEED ANSWERS!

The Worst Movie Posters


The Unborn

Okay, at first glance this might look like the best poster ever made – it does contain an arse in pants, after all. But that’s the problem.
We might glance up a bit to see that weird looking kid in the mirror, we may even glance down a bit to see what the film’s called, but we won’t linger on either long enough to retain the information. We’re too busy getting back to the arse. In pants. Brilliant.

The Worst Movie Posters


After Life

So, who is that? Natalie Portman gone blonde? Anna Faris gone slim? Or just some unknown actress no-one cares about?
If only we could see her face properly. Or even read the name above the title.
Hey, I wonder what happened to Kate Bosworth. She hasn’t been in anything for ages. We used to like her.

The Worst Movie Posters


Corky Romano

The look on Romano’s face is somewhere between orgasmic bliss and a man who’s in the process of taking a massive bowel movement. And it’s further emphasized by the fact that it’s the only freakin’ image on the poster. Was Chris Kattan really such a star at the time that they felt they could promote a movie with just his insanely grinning mug?
With a color scheme that likely prompted a lawsuit from Hulk Hogan, the poster is moronic and not the least bit funny.
Who is Corky Romano?
Who gives a damn?

Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

This movie is considered one of the all-time worst by both critics and fans. Not content with that distinction, the makers of the film also designed a poster so crappy that they were sure to be included on this prestigious list. I have to give credit where credit’s due; whoever was calling the shots for this one was certainly ambitious.I don’t have any children of my own, and this poster makes me want to keep it that way. Too bad the parents of the poster’s designers didn’t feel the same way.

Hercules in New York

Made in 1970, this movie (also known as Hercules Goes Bananas and simply Hercules) was the first feature role for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Much like Baby Geniuses 2, this also happens to be considered a contender for the worst film of all time. In fact, Arnold’s accent was so thick that his lines were dubbed over by another actor.
With his large forehead and freakish muscles on display, the future action movie king looks to me to be dressed only in a towel. In some ways, I think this poster could easily be mistaken as an ad for a gay porno. The poster does an incredibly poor job of indicating the kind of action we might see in the film. With a barren black background, all we know for sure is that we’re going to see lots of some unknown muscular guy wearing a towel.
Great idea for a gay porno. Horrible idea for anything else.

The Worst Movie Posters


Up the Sandbox

In what proved to be one of her lowest-grossing films ever, Barbra Streisand starred Up the Sandbox, a 1972 movie that involved, among other things, armed robbery, tribal fertility music, a terrorist plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty… and one of the ugliest movie posters ever made.

The Worst Movie Posters



One of many posters for the 1983 movie Christine, I must say it looks like a giant vagina with teeth.

The Worst Movie Posters


Top Dog

Here’s a new Chuck Norris fact: his 1995 movie Top Dog sucks… and its poster took about 15 minutes to be made.

The Worst Movie Posters


Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

On this poster for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Spock and Kirk seem to be riding a gay rainbow to San Francisco, looking around bewildered at the gays.

The Worst Movie Posters


One Crazy Summer

Awesome cast, but what’s that awful smiling sun doing in 1986 One Crazy Summer’s poster?

The Worst Movie Posters


What’s The Worst That Can Happen?

What’s The Worst That Can Happen? This poster? Nope, the film’s even worse, sadly. To be fair, it lost us at the words ‘Martin’ and ‘Lawrence’. Danny DeVito deserves better.

The Worst Movie Posters


Good Luck Chuck

A poster that matches the awfulness of the film. Good work in that sense, I suppose. I think I find this so offensive because I object to the fact that it’s mimicking an iconic picture of John and Yoko that featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. And not very well, either.

The Worst Movie Posters


Bangkok Dangerous

I really like the original Bangkok Dangerous, but this Nic Cage re-make was pretty bad. I have no idea what’s happening in this poster. Is that an invisible gun in Cage’s hand? Why is he reaching into his coat? Does he have an itch? That must be it. That would certainly explain the look on his face.

The Worst Movie Posters


One Missed Call

Stupid horror movies are often accompanied by equally stupid posters, but what the hell is going on here?! I have no idea what it will sound like when I do, but I sure hope it doesn’t look like that.

    Are you serious!!? The Unborn!! that is my favorite cover of all time.

  • JimD

    1) The Unborn – GREAT poster
    2) Jingle All The Way – look at it again… now do you see the tag line ?

  • A BiPolar Guyr

    Some of these I think you are dead right on (Indiana jones, Up the sandbox for example) but most I think you are picky at best, dead wrong in most cases. However what I really believe is that such judgements as with the quality of the movies, is not something that can BE right or wrong. there are no laws of the universe or of God for this.

    My family really likes Jingle all the Way. You can only like or dislike a movie, you can’t objectively say it’s bad. Try saying it was very unpopular or most critics panned it. Those are statements of fact, provable or disprovable. “its bad” is not something you can rally prove.

  • Tess

    Yeah, go ahead and gripe about the grammatical error in the first poster… Try proofreading your s**t before you post it on the intrawebs.

  • madhav

    good collection

  • epicfailer

    read my name. posters speak for themselves, sometimes a plot, sometimes a clue, sometimes a hunch. and u viewed it all literally. Race to witch mountain unfair, or u havent got time watching it? phew… and u even meant “WORST” in your title literally worst.

  • Etch

    I agree with most commentators here, it looks like you couldn’t gather enough bad posters so you just lumped a bunch of good ones in there too!

    You were complaining that “race to witch mountain” has a picture of the Cab?
    Come on dude, its kind of central to the plot!

    Can’t you do better than that?

  • fievel

    ahahahah! very fanny! but seriously, when people call an edition of diferent sizes photos “floating heads” a think that is visual ignorance.

  • Sonja

    Jonah Hex:
    Did you watch the movie? She actually looks like that in the corset. (Unless they digitally altered the movie too…) It freaked me out.

  • matt

    i think that good luck chuck might be the worst in the list

  • suzycreamcheese

    Love And Other Drugs

  • otonis

    i love your sense of humor, and i agree to all that you said above :))

  • Ike Iszany

    The worst part of these posters is on so many of them it’s painfully obvious the stars heads have been Photoshopped onto someone elses bodies.

  • coolfunnytshirts.net

    cool list.

  • sher singh

    Very cool collection,really like them

  • mr handshaker

    as a grafik-designer i can tell you, most of these posters are not as bad as you might think. infact they do what they intend to do, they sell the movie.

    plus often times i think you are missjudging what you actually see. for example the very last poster, blonde and blonder. if you have seen the movie, you would know that its all about barby-girls. so why shouldnt the poster be all fake and plastic? i think it represents the content of that very movie very well.

    another factor you forget is time. some movies are form the 80s, of course they are “bad” compared to todays standards, but back then things where different.

    the only poster that realy made me laught about its bad quality was the spiderman-poster, but that was nothing new either.

    i think you were probably just in a ranting mood, and got terrible off the hook!

    sory for the critic :P

  • Michael

    “1990′s” is grammatically correct. You need to learn the correct use of the an apostrophe before you criticize its misuse. It’s a little more complicated than apostrophe-s is possessive, just an “s” is plural. I’ve even included an example.

  • Nitin

    good collection……….bt some photos r not that good…..

  • Love

    good photos, Like it.

  • Matt

    okay im sorry, about half of these posters have nothing wrong with them, at all….NOTHING, and the person doing this is either paranoid or over analytical because in the spiderman one her hand is not weird looking and it is NOT in an awkward position due to where her arm is going, her arm is obviously looped under spider mans arm moving up his back, ive seen many girls do this, its a normal position for an arm to be in when holding someone. also the race to witch mountain, you are supposed to be talking about the posters LOOKS not the title of the movie “why a race to witch mountain”……thats why you watch the damned movie you idiot, i mean what they say about the taxi is valid but dont mess with the title, thats apart of the entire movie, not just the poster, its not as if they made the title for the poster.

Take a look at these:
