I’m Sorry, but I’m Contractually Obligated to Show Them All

September 23rd, 2008 at 11:12 pm » Comments (0)

SAW V, from France. The french are apparently traditionalists and thought the other poster was just too different. And since we are talking about different (and about SAW) here is a poster for REPO! The Gentic Opera. Much more interesting, with a clear style that you can also see in other materials for the movie. [...]



Fear(s) of the Dark Poster

September 2nd, 2008 at 12:04 am » Comments (1)

“it’s your typical French animated … horror … anthology. In black & white.” That’s how Scott Weinberg describes Fear(s) of the Dark over at Cinematical. Seems quite intriguing. The poster, on the other hand, is kind of dull. It does look like a poster for a french animated horror anthology in black and white, but [...]



More SAW V

“You won’t believe how it ends.” Does it end with a belief stretching twist? Because I can sort of believe that. As for the ongoing saga of the attempt to make the SAW V posters visually interesting they have skewered the normal white background style (good) but failed to find something else that really grabs [...]



Catching Up is Hard to Do

Well, since I complained about the lack of originality of the last blood drive poster I guess I should commend them for trying something a little different. Not really different enough to be striking, but I appreciate he effort. Can you say brooding? Can you say it while constantly looking down? Mister Payne looks like [...]



Three New Mirrors Poster

August 7th, 2008 at 11:31 pm » Comments (5)

I would have thought that a supernatural thriller involving mirrors could make for some pretty great weird/creepy posters, but that hasn’t been the case so far for this Kiefer Sutherland starer. We are now four posters in and none of them manages to come up with a catchy and compelling image. And this is despite [...]



SAW Blood Drive Poster

You know, I like the fact that there is a SAW blood drive. From a social good sense it’s a terrific thing. But I can only see so many posters for sexy nurses and still be interested. We’ve been there. It was interesting. It was fresh. It was exciting. Now all of it is just [...]



Remakes and Sequels: Still Milking My Childhood

The Friday the 13th series has a special place in my heart. The very first real horror movie I ever saw, back when I was a tender and innocent child, was a Friday. Not entirely sure which. I would afterwards be scared time and time again by the other installments of this great series. As [...]



First SAW V Poster

As much as I have come to disdain the SAW movies, which have turned into something of a joke by now, I have to admire the work they always put on the posters for the film. The posters for the fourth outing did leave something to be desired, making me think that their run of [...]



All the Boys Love Funny Games

June 25th, 2008 at 11:27 pm » Comments (1)

This one is interesting to me. The similarities are quite obvious, and have been pointed out elsewhere. Perhaps the fact the the Funny Games poster was one of the most striking posters of late makes things more obvious, but still. Then again, the differences are quite huge. And among them is the much calmer expression, [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round Up: Not White Enough Edition

Transsiberian I really wish they had done more with the whiteness of the ambient. But I guess this isn’t too bad. Mutant Chronicles It’s always funny to find a new poster for a movie you wrote about a year ago. Apparently they used all that time to come up with a much worse poster design. [...]
