Artificial intelligence has reimagined movie posters of popular horror films just in time for Halloween – and the results are teeming with blood, gore and terror.
A graphic design team inputted key words like mask, black cloak and blood to inspire the AI-powered app Wonder that brought the nightmares to life.
The popular 1996 slasher film Scream features a woman with blue eyes and covering her mouth on its movie poster, but the AI created a hooded figure with a mask that is dripping in blood that is ‘arguably even more terrifying than the original.’
The visuals were created using an app that asks users to describe what they want to see in the digital artwork, which has become a new medium recently.

Spooky season is upon us, which means many dark nights will be spent watching scary movies and the graphic design team at Evoluted merged AI visuals and took inspiration from the original posters to design the new posters.
Child’s Play: Something’s moved in with the Barclay Family and so has terror
This movie was released in 1988 and tells the story about a serial killer who was gunned down by police.
His soul was then trapped inside a doll named Chuckie, which was bought by a mother for her son Andy.
The 1980s movie poster leaves room for the imagination, as it only shows the doll’s bloodshot, blue eyes in the dark sky and the mother falling from a window.
The AI, however, produced an image of a very real looking doll with dead eyes and a knife behind its back.
Friday the 13th: They were warned… They are doomed…
Child’s Play was released in 1988 and tells the story about a serial killer who was gunned down by police and his soul became trapped in a red-haired doll that terrorizes a family. Unlike the original poster (left), the AI version (right) shows a doll with dead eyes
Friday The 13th’s original movie poster (left) shows just the silhouette of Jason Voorhees, who puts on a hockey mask to terrorize a summer camp. The AI produced a gory image (right) of the iconic hockey mask covered in blood
This popular 1980 slasher film transformed the average hockey mask into a sign of terror when a mysterious figure wears the mask while murdering campers at a summer camp called Crystal Lake.
While the original movie poster shows the Jason Voorhees’, the murderer in the film, silhouette holding a knife dripping in blood, the AI put the iconic hockey mask front and center – but reimagined it with razor sharp teeth and covered in blood.
IT: The Master of Horror unleashes everything you were ever afraid of
The world was terrorized by a child-killing clown when IT hit televisions in 1990, which tells the story of of seven pre-teens who fight an evil demon that posses the clown named Pennywise.
The group reunite as adults to again stop the evil clown from terrorizing their hometown.
The 1990 poster shows Pennywise ripping through with his long, clawed fingers. He appears to be looking at viewers dead in the eyes and even gives an evil smirk.
The reimagined poster is a close shot of Pennywise that now has fanged teeth dripping with blood.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Who will survive and what will be left of them?
This film hit theaters in 1974, touting that it is based on a true story about a crazed family that lives in rural Texas.
A group of five friends are driving through the area when they come upon what they thought was an abandoned house, but they actually stumble upon the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface who picks each of them off one by one – leaving just one survivor.
The film is not entirely true, but is based loosely on real-life murderer Ed Gain who decorated his home with the skins and teeth of his victims.
The original movie poster shows a drawing of Leatherface who is holding a chainsaw with one of his victims hanging from a beam while screaming for help.
The AI’s idea of the film shows a disfigured close up of the serial killers holding the chainsaw.
