From IMDb: “A daughter, mother and grandmother are haunted by a manifestation of dementia that consumes their family’s home.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C+ / B-

Review: (#1) The off-kilter design adds some tension to the design, but the antiquing details don’t add much more to what is otherwise uninteresting.

(#2) Really similar to the first design, the changers harm and benefit the design in equal measure.

(#3) A simplified design that uses visual distinctiveness and symbolism to sell the film, though not to the audience the studio would otherwise expect.

Trailer Rating: B- / C+

Review: (#1) The concept is definitely original and you almost get the impression from the trailer that it’s well executed, but there’s still a shadow of doubt hanging over the film.

(#2) There isn’t much new in this design. It exhibits more of a explanation of the film’s set up, but doesn’t do enough to encourage fright. That said, the scene under the bed is suitably frightening without being a jump scare, which is a nice touch.
