From IMDb: “A young woman’s desperate search for her abducted boyfriend that draws her into the infamous Colonia Dignidad, a sect nobody ever escaped from.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C / C / C / C / C

Review: (#1) This German design is the only one that has any semblance of creativity involved. While the three-person split image at the top is generic, at least it’s constructed properly and is largely in balance with the rest of the design. (#2) A haphazard, unexceptional and utterly uninventive design. (#3) It creates a layer of mystery and suspense, but seems entirely out of place in comparison to the other designs and with the tone presented in the trailer.

(#4) These three posters are neither more interesting, nor less than the previous posters. They all exist in similar constructions and patterns, which hardly make them that appealing.

Trailer Rating: C / C

Review: (#1 & #2) The two trailers are different, but the story seems to blend together. Neither creates a level of intrigue that might draw in an audience and both seem uninteresting in trying to explain exactly what’s going on. Confusion is never good when selling a film.
