Poster Rating: B-; C+

Review: A very simple poster that will easily turn off the kinds of viewers who shouldn’t see the film. It doesn’t conjure up horrific images of subdermal infestation, which seems perfect for the film.

The second poster is a lot less creepy and a lot less interesting. It’s quite different and might be a little more enticing to some.

Trailer Rating: B; C+

Review: Psychological thriller or Grade F horror schlock? The preview suggests the latter, but William Friedkin knows how to twist a tale making this the most likely of this year’s horror crop to be frightful and thought provoking.; It doesn’t look like much new was added except a journo mention. At least you can tell that it’s going to be a film filled with gory images, so at least you can prepare yourself. It’s still difficult to tell if the bugs are entirely psychological or real. At least that adds some suspense to the project.

Oscar Prospects:

Unlikely to catch fire like Friedkin’s Oscar success The Exorcist, I doubt this film will even make a blip on the Oscar radar.
