View Full Version : Great Taglines
the night watchman
12-06-2000, 06:10 PM
Taglines are like movie slogans. For instance, "Alien's" is "In Space No One Can Here You Scream."
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: "Who Will Survive and What Will Be Left of Them?"
Phantasm: "If This One Doesn't Scare You, You're Already Dead."
Near Dark: "Pray For Daylight"
Re-Animator: "Herbert West Has a Good Head on His Shoulders. And Another One On His Desk."
The Fly: "Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid."
From Beyond: "Humans Are Such Easy Prey."
An early poster for "Alien" had this:
"A Word of Warning ... Alien"
Cameron devised a tagline when he wrote the screenplay for "Aliens": "Sometimes Survival Isn't Enough." (Much better than the blah "This Time It's War.")
Army of Darkness: "Trapped in Time. Surrounded by Evil. Low on Gas."
Can you guys think of any more?

I always liked the ones for PROM NIGHT: "If you're not back by midnight, you won't be coming home!" and/or "Some will be crowned, others will lose their heads!"
06-08-2001, 08:36 PM
Always had a soft spot for:
THE BITCH IS BACK (Alien 3)
GET HOOKED AGAIN... (I Still Know... the tag was better than the film !)
The night HE came home... (Halloween)
You Think you're alone. Think again...(Hollow Man)
THEY LOSE THEIR LIFE IF THEY DON'T LOSE THEIR PANTS (from the trailer to Cherry Falls)
...plus others, but I can't remember them at the moment. Memory ain't what it was... (and i'm only 20, sheesh!)
06-08-2001, 08:45 PM
Some of the ones I like:
Black Christmas- "If this movie doesn't make your skin crawl, it's on too tight."
Clownhouse- "You can't leave, they want to play."
Chopping Mall- "Where shopping can cost you an arm and a leg." "Chopping Mall, where they slash their prices and their costumers."
There are many others I like, I'll write them when I remember them.
06-08-2001, 11:51 PM

It's their party, you can die if you want to

I liked the one in Blood Beach even though the movie wasn't that good:
"Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, you can't get to it."
06-09-2001, 04:08 AM
The Last House On The Left, from Wes Craven :
Remember it is just a movie, just a movie, just a movie and so on.

Oh come on. . . you forgot one of the best ones. . .
CHUCKY GETS LUCKY!
(That's from Bride of Chucky, heh)
06-09-2001, 11:19 AM
There once was a house,
A bright happy home.
Something bad happened,
Now it sits all alone.
These are its bones;
This is its skin;
There are its eyes;
Won't you...COME IN?
(From the teaser trailer of "The Haunting" remake)
Sound the trumpets. Raise the drawbridge. Drop the Oldsmobile.
(Army of Darkness)
The ultimate experience in grueling horror!

Shocking... disturbing... The movie they tried to ban.
06-12-2001, 12:38 AM
How about this one:
If you make a cheesy, unoriginal horror film, make sure it doesn't suck like this one-From "I Know What You Did Last Summer"
Oh wait, that is what the tagline SHOULD have been /ubb/smile.gif
06-12-2001, 09:46 AM
LoL @ Dark Minister.
<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">How about House: Ding dong your dead.
Always liked that one...</font>
kinda OT here but I've seen House 4 on shelves it is worth picking up?
06-12-2001, 09:49 AM
Ha,ha very funny dark minister. Speaking of "Summer" they show it on t.v. a few days ago but not on cable. It was very hard to enjoy with all the comercials though. As for another tagline....how about ummmmm........I'll have to get back to you on that..but I promise to think of one.
06-12-2001, 10:05 AM
I thought of one! I thought of one!

My personal favorite is from "Night School" (1981), in which a maniac chops the heads off its victims:
A is for Apple
B is for Bed
C is for Car
D is for Dead
F is Failing to keep your head!
09-26-2001, 10:05 PM
i liked the tagline for deep rising. "Women and children first,you next."
09-27-2001, 09:30 AM
The Best Tagline of ALL TIME:
From John Carpenter's The Thing
"Man is the Warmest Place to Hide"
Gives me the chills!
09-28-2001, 01:19 AM
One of the coolest was definitaly Maniac Cop.The cover with him walking down the street in the dark by himself with the tagline You have the right to remain silent....forever.Cool shit.
09-28-2001, 06:26 AM
Anyone ever notice the taglines for Mikey and Milo are the same?
"Freddy and Jason were kids too" (or something like that)
09-28-2001, 02:09 PM
"He's not Freddy..He's not Jason..He's REAL"---HENRY:PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER
09-28-2001, 07:45 PM
And I still love HALLOWEEN's original tagline: The Night HE Came Home...which suggests a stand-alone movie about The Bogeyman rather than the start of a rather inconsistent horror film series (1, 2 and H20 ruled, and would have made a great trilogy; 4 and 5 were OK; 3 was a separate flick; and 6 sucked!).
09-28-2001, 08:34 PM
"Are you eating it, or is it eating you?"
09-28-2001, 09:43 PM
What's Eating You?-Jeepers Creepers
