Oh, I like this poster. Sure, I liked the first movie and I’m a sucker for horror posters, so feel free to ignore me. But I really think this is one of the good ones.
There are two elements in this poster that I particularly like. The first is that it keeps the sun drenched, desert hell look. This look was a very important part of the last movie. It gave it a certain personality, I think.
The second is that although it doesn’t show anything thing violent or gory, it does give us a very good feeling for the kind “bad stuff” we can expect to happen in the movie. It automatically gives us the knowledge that whomever is going to be lost in the desert this time is in for one bad ride. And that is the kind of thing that gets me into the theater.
Feel free to call me a sicko now.
