Review: (#1) This is one of the more interesting designs for a horror film poster. It’s mostly unsettling, though it feels too “precious” for its own good. (#2) Here we have a significantly more traditional design, but one that doesn’t have any really appealing qualities.

Trailer Rating: C+ / B-

Review: (#1) For a trailer, this one goes on a bit too long, doesn’t give enough plot details, but feels like a cheaply made horror thriller. (#2) This does a better job of making the film feel thrilling or exciting, but the hackneyed approach to style is too obvious.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
