International Posters for The Happening

May 21st, 2008 at 12:34 am » Comments (3)

The marketing pitch for The Happenning has been pretty clear from the get go. Creepy horror movie in which everybody dies mysteriously, leaving only a few people to deal with the aftermath. It’s not an exactly an unique premise, but it is one that has given us some strong stories, and it’s good hook to [...]



Polish X-Files Poster

And yet another poster with a weird looking head. Seems there are a lot of those this days. As for the rest of the poster, I think like the spirit of it. It seems like it tries to move on from relying solely on brand recognition and tries to turn X-Files 2 into something that [...]



Dance of the Dead Poster

Ok, now this is haunting. This poster gets at the core of why Dance of the Dead is such a scary flick as it shows the poor teenagers nervously hiding from the evil critics’ quotes that are trying to stomp them to death. And I just don’t think they are going to make it. Smaller [...]



Stuck Movie Poster

Now this is odd. I guess a faux tabloid front page is one way to explain Stuck’s intriguing storyline. The real story which inspired it certainly seems tabloid worthy. And if it’s a good way to sell newspapers why can’t it also be a good way to sell a movie? But I do worry about [...]



The Strangers Poster

And here is more proof that subtle can work very well in horror advertisement. There are two reasons why I like this poster. The first reason is simply how creepy it is. A normal room with Liv Tyler in the middle, looking a little worried but apparently not sure why. And then him, in the [...]



The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond Posters

April 21st, 2008 at 1:47 pm » Comments (4)

I thought I was pretty much over aged horror posters that mimicked posters from decades past. The concept has been used too many time since Grindhouse, sometimes with silly results. But it seems I was wrong, because here are two new aged posters for The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond and I’m really digging them. [...]



The Spider Movie Poster

Not that many interesting new posters coming out these days, so let me take a moment to highlight a posters for smaller film that I have been meaning to talk about for a while. Here is a pretty amusing poster for Rober Sigl’s The Spider, depicting that ages old Turkish problem, half human/half-spider monsters. Now, [...]



American Rogue Poster

April 14th, 2008 at 1:07 pm » Comments (4)

This American Rogue poster isn’t exactly subtle, is it? We have a big ass alligator, jaws wide open, trying to eat a bunch of ragged letters. Which is meant to convey that the movie will have a giant ass alligator which will try to eat a bunch of people. No actors in the poster because, [...]



First X-Files 2 Poster

April 1st, 2008 at 1:34 am » Comments (4)

How strong is the X-Files brand right now? That is the question I find myself asking as I look at this poster. It’s a fine teaser in many ways. We have Mulder and Scully, we have the big X and we have a sense of possible danger and of mysterious things being revealed. It’s simple, [...]

The Facts in the Case of Mr. Hollow Poster (Big)

I don’t normally feature posters for short films. Not that I have anything against them, I just don’t generally stumble across posters for shorts. But thanks to twitch that changed today, and so I bring you the poster for the The Facts in the Case of Mr. Hollow.[...]
