Yet again, as I've said will be a recurring theme as we get towards the top of the countdown, the poster for Bryan Forbes' original The Stepford Wives features a totally eye-catching central image to which the poster is merely a canvas to show off. It's an eerie thought-inducing image that sells the movie's central mystery.

The theme was reused several years ago for the poster of Adaptation.


And, not surprisingly, that poster was one of the best of it's year too.
