Rosemary's Baby is pretty misleading in the way it makes you think the baby will be a significant protagonist, well, he will in a certain way but I've always thought he'd be the main "horror" vehicle.

Thanks for the suggestion. For me personally it's moreso the title of the film along with the fact that it's a horror movie that made me think the baby was gonna be a big deal (I was under that impression without seeing the poster years ago when my dad recommended the movie to me). I will keep it in mind though.

Also, do you (or anyone) know a way that I can get a poster to crop better or find some way that voters can see the whole poster?

The teeth look like fangs, which is what always made me think this was a werewolf movie, and the patches looked to me like different stages of the werewolf transformation. However, IMDB crops out the teeth when I put it in my list and it makes me sad.

Uh groovy... the idea of what is "misleading" or not is purely subjective, so I'm not sure why you should give more credit to your personal vision of what a 'misleading poster' is than mine, especially since you don't have many options listed in the first place, lol, I don't get it (I ask that in a friendly tone, I'm not upset).

Besides, I knew the baby was gonna be a big deal, that wasn't the point... what I meant is that I thought the baby was gonna be present for the most part of the film, not that the whole movie would deal with Rosemary's actual pregnancy. Making the baby physically present in the poster can give the idea that he plays the same kind of role as Damien in "The Omen"... while the baby is only present for the film's climax.

People make subjective decisions in what to include and exclude in their polls all the time, and I have about 20 more options that I'm adding when I have time to do so.

You can just barely tell that shes holding a knife!
Her hand kind of looks like it is around the towel till you look at it closer.
The first thing that grabs your attention is the hair and awesome muscle tone on her left arm. It detracts your noticing the weapon at all.
Just a few. I think you'll find one good.

Thanks, it's kinda hard for me to write about what the poster looks like vs what the movie is actually about if I haven't seen or heard of the film

What a good idea for a poll! 'So many good options that I'll have a tough time choosing just one; I bet this could easily be a "hotly contested" poll.
