Can you name these classic horror movies with only their original posters as a clue?

Vampires and monsters and ghouls, oh my!

It's that time of year when people make lists of spooky movies they have to watch leading up to Halloween. Some go for new releases and modern horror flicks, opting for the latest It movie or the latest in The Conjuring franchise. Before these media sensations, however, there were a slew of freaky films that audiences loved to be spooked by.

These classic movies still hold a special place in many a top 10 list for best horror films ever made, but today we're giving them their own spotlight. Names like Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney (junior or senior) would immediately send chills down your spine, and you would know that you were in for a good spook! But who were these timeless monsters? Did you catch them on the silver screen?

In other words, can you name these classic horror movies with only their original posters as a clue? See if you can I.D. the titles of each and get in the Halloween spirit!
