Compare and Contrast: Posters From Recent Horror Remakes Vs. Their Counterparts From the Original Films

April 21st, 2007 at 10:58 pm » Comments (8)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974 x 2003) Man, that original TCM poster is a classic. The poster for the new film on the other hand is very blah. I mean, it doesn’t even have a chainsaw in it!



Hairspray Poster

It’s colorful! It’s got pics of everybody, showcasing that the film has a large cast of well known actors! It shows their hair, which is not only a clever visual pun but also shows that the movie doesn’t take itself too seriously! Am I excited? Not yet! But I do think it will work pretty [...]



New Hostel Part II Poster

April 20th, 2007 at 10:22 am » Comments (1)

Well, this poster once again proves that Hostel Part II will be THE film to watch if you love seeing woman being tortured and murdered. A fun time at the theater! I find it hard to judge objectively the Hostel posters because I hated the first part so much (and I say this as a [...]



Vacancy Poster

I like the look of this poster. It’s a pretty straightforward interpretation of the title, but it looks good and is scary enough. I think the whole beaten up motel look has become tightly associated in our brains with “bad things” due to countless horror movies, and that help the poster be more effective in [...]



License to Wed Poster

Look, it’s Mandy Moore! And some random dude playing her fiancee! And Robin Williams is lying in bed in between them! And he is dressed like a priest! Hahahahahhaha. I mock because I’m ashamed that I actually might want to see this movie. Some day Robin Williams will make a movie so bad I’ll stop [...]

Worth1000 has an hilarious collection of movie posters for films that are close, but not quite the ones you know. (via)



In The Land of Women Poster

April 18th, 2007 at 10:12 am » Comments (2)

I’m not sure how I feel about this poster. It does have a different aesthetic from the one found in most posters for romantic movies, with the whole black and blue coloring, and the passionate kiss that ends up hiding the faces of the two actors. And because of those elements the poster does catch [...]



Fracture

April 17th, 2007 at 10:56 am » Comments (0)

This is a typical poster for a thriller. Dark, two floating heads, white and red letters. All very, very common for this type of film. This second poster is a little different, and it caused some problems. Some people in Boston, including anti domestic violence groups, were upset with the poster and called for it [...]



Hot Fuzz Movie Poster

April 16th, 2007 at 7:56 pm » Comments (0)

Any resemblance of the poster above with the poster below is not a mere coincidence. Hot Fuzz comes from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. While that film played homage/parodied the zombie movie genre, this one does the same to the action film genre. And if the poster is any indication, they did a [...]
