Best Horror Movie Taglines of all Time

The top 20 most memorable taglines from horror movies.

Tag lines are that cool, short sentence that appears on the movie poster or in the trailer. A few words, very tight. It defines the movie and entices us to see the film. The horror genre has been especially clever in their movie taglines. Here are the best horror movie taglines from the past five decades:

1 - The night He came home. 
Halloween (1978) John Carpenter's masterpiece takes the cake.
