In alphabetical order...
The ABCs of Death: I think this striking piece of art. I like the colors, the juxtaposition of death and newly-born life. And while the "burning embers" (or swirling debris) theme has been introduced to a lot of posters we've seen, it works here.
The Bay: It's simple, but the art makes you look closer. In this case, you're rewarded by looking beyond the x-ray of a skull and discovering a creepy crawly buried in someone's mouth.
The Cabin in the Woods: Like the film, this artwork is just plain...smart. What it has going against it, however, is its adoption of white and gray which is so overused these days.
Chronicle: Not horror, I get it. But we covered it and I dug the poster. Again, another one that begs you to look closer.
V/H/S: This one calls to mind Visiting Hours, but it's terrifically eye-catching and suits the film just fine.
Best multi-poster campaign: ParaNorman. The main poster is okay, however, the artful alternative pieces (which you were able to get for free in some cities by pulling them off street fences and on the sides of buildings) were refreshing and creative.
