I figured, why just keep you informed on all the horrendous movie posters that are out there when there are plenty of amazing posters too. I thought I'd look firstly at the new poster for William Friedkin's Bug. I don't know exactly what it is, but something about this poster is incredibly unsettling and it's freaking me out. That seemingly innocent image of star Ashley Judd, but then the shadows are actually creating a second face. And, omg, look at the eye.
This poster is giving me the creeps, which from what I've heard about the play it is based on, it exactly how I should be feeling. I am instantly interested and anticipating this film now, which is exactly what a poster should be doing, and not just showing you a cast member standing somewhere anonymous.
And that tag line is quite amazing.
FIRST THEY SEND IN THEIR DRONE...
THEN THEY FIND THEIR QUEEN
On it's own that tag line wouldn't really be much, but with that image of Judd and the mysterious face, it just adds more to the creepiness.
I love this poster. I could have done without the Oscar-baiting quotes, though, but I guess that's only a minor frustration. Bring on Bug, I say.
