"Read If You Dare!": Weirdest Movie Taglines

The Tagline. Every movie has one. 

It's a big part of advertising a film and a good tagline can make you interested in seeing a film. 

There have been great taglines in film. Such as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...

"For Three Men the Civil War Wasn't Hell. It was Practice"

Or Alien...

"In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream"

Here I've gathered up some odd movie taglines. Some are funny and some just flat out don't make sense. A lot of these seem unintentionally funny. Maybe the advertisers and film makers were going for that with some of these or maybe they just stopped caring. Who knows?

But either way, here they are...


  THE UNASHAMED (1938)


   "Actually Filmed in a Nudist Camp"
         ...................................................................................................
SUSPIRIA (1977)


     "The Only Thing More Terrifying Than The Last 12 Minutes Of This Film Are The First 92"
          ........................................................................................................

 SHATTER DEAD (1994)

     .......................................................................................................

   "Not To Be Confused With KING KONG"
        .....................................................................................................

HOUSE OF WAX (2005)

       
  "See Paris (Hilton) Die"
      ....................................................................................................

  THE BLACK SCORPION (1957)

  
  "Don't Be Ashamed to Scream...It Helps To Relieve The Tension"
          ...................................................................................................................................

     OUANGA a.k.a THE LOVE WANGA (1936)

 
 "Strange Loves Of Queer People"
     ...............................................................................................

THE FLESH EATERS (1964)

"The Only People Who Will Not Be STERILIZED With FEAR Are Those Amongst You Who Are Already DEAD!"
                     .............................................................................................................................................

   I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF (1957)

         
  "The Most Amazing Motion Picture Of Our Time"   .................................................................................................................

   THE BEAST THAT KILLED WOMEN (1965)

                                                     
  "Terror Stalks The Nudists!"
......................................................................................

BLOOD FREAK (1972)

                                                         
  "A Dracula On Drugs"
   ...........................................................................

 CORRUPTION (1968)
"CORRUPTION Is Not A Woman's Picture! Therefor: No Woman Will Be Admitted Alone To See This Super-Shock Film!!"
                       .......................................................................................................................................

  DRACULA'S DAUGHTER (1936)


  "She Gives You That Weird Feeling"
      ..............................................................................................


These are just a few of many. If you feel I missed any really good goofy taglines, let me know. I get a kick out of these and would love to see more!

    IF THIS MOVIE DOESN'T MAKE YOUR SKIN CRAWL...IT'S ON TOO TIGHT!

  3. This is great. Suspiria and Massacre at Central High! Peeping Tom had some good ones. H.G. Lewis' movies like Blood Feast, 2,000 maniacas and She Devils on Wheels had good ones too. "Guts as hard as the steel of their hogs."

  5. Hey -- like your site!

    One of my old favorites is from the 90s horror flick "Popcorn" -- "Buy a bag...go home in a box." I can still hear the announcer saying it in the TV commercials!
