The Possession Poster

May 9th, 2012 at 11:42 am » Comments (1)

One of the things that I like about Horror is that it’s one the few genres in which you still can see some crazy imagery in modern posters. Often, imagery that isn’t even directly present in the actual film! Like, they can create something that represents the idea behind the film, and not just what [...]



Totally Random Poster of the Week: Rubber

September 23rd, 2011 at 11:04 am » Comments (2)

From the Wikipedia article: “In the California desert, a tire comes to life and embarks on a killing spree as an audience watches the events unfold through binoculars. The tire kills by vibrating intensely and psycho-kinetically causing people’s heads to explode.” To be honest, this sounds like one of those concepts that sounds great on [...]



Rare Exports Posters

November 10th, 2010 at 1:10 pm » Comments (7)

This poster for Rare Exports is so wonderfully wrong I just can’t stop starring at it. Obviously it’s a play on the traditional Christmas painting with some unique elements, the most clear of which is the caged and enraged Santa that is at the core of the movie’s concept. But the way in which they [...]



Must Have Sounded Good When High: Marmaduke Edition

April 11th, 2010 at 5:42 pm » Comments (8)

I have basically been very disconnected from movie news for the last few months, but I still try to at least keep up with the posters coming out whenever I can. This leads to some interesting moments when I find out a certain movie is being made by seeing its poster. Not having any other [...]



Second Daybreakers Poster

October 15th, 2009 at 9:50 pm » Comments (1)

This is not exactly the poster one would expect from a vampire movie. Especially not after the first, much more genre standard, poster. But it does make sense once you take into account that the film takes place in the near future and that an important plot point is that vampires are now harvesting humans [...]



The Crazies Poster

September 28th, 2009 at 9:24 pm » Comments (3)

I think the contrast between the welcoming sign and the dire warning scribbled in red would be more effective if we could actually read the original text. As it is this is just a scary sign. The town in the background does look quite placid, but it’s almost invisible when paired with the strong and [...]



SAW VI

September 22nd, 2009 at 9:42 pm » Comments (7)

I thought the days seeing the SAW posters find some clever way to work the film’s number into the poster image where over. I guess not. Honestly, the tradition feels stale. And the way they created the number is clever, but also feels too contrived. This poster looks lot like the posters we used to [...]



Halloween II Some Motion Poster

September 1st, 2009 at 10:21 pm » Comments (1)

Well, the hot streak of motion posters had to end eventually. So after several motion posters that seemed to understand how to use the liberty of the new media we get this, basically the same thing as the final poster but with some motion thrown in, almost as an after thought. Not exactly awe-inpiring. (Via [...]



SAW VI Drives

August 11th, 2009 at 9:58 pm » Comments (0)

The SAW nurses were always sexy, but in a very doll, almost fake way. An aspect which the latest poster apparently decided to embrace completely. These blood drive posters have that warm feeling of tradition by now, but they are probably irrelevant to the marketing. Hopefully they actually do some good by getting people to [...]



Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Poster

July 29th, 2009 at 8:26 pm » Comments (3)

I know it will suck. Know it! But the claws, the shirt and the face are all such memorable parts of my young adulthood that I can’t help but to feel some goosebumps. Which is why it pays to do lame remakes on the cheap. The young ones want to experience something that was big [...]
