Faces within faces are always kinda creepy, but in this poster for Fritz Lang's 1933 horror flick The Testament of Dr Mabuse it reaches a whole new level. Add it with the schitzophrenic way the title is written and the appearance of crumpled up paper on the left hand side, make this poster feel like somebody just etched it out. It also looks possessed, which is always a good thing if you ask me.
