Honestly,I don't think anyone can beat Poland in the weird movie poster department:

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Weekend at Bernie's

Planet of the Apes:

The Muppet Movie:

Terms of Endearment

Though in general I'm convinced the movie Art departments of a number of Eastern Yuropean countries were doing some seriously hard drugs between 1960 and the 1990s...
