Review: (#1) The invisible man might be hiding in the black space, but this designer did nothing to give that idea over to the audience. It’s generally just an overly-vacant design.

(#2) Modestly interesting, but otherwise unimpressive. This design has a touch of creativity, but an awful lack of detail.

(#3-#6) This utterly wasted series of individual poster designs are creepy, but visually unappealing.

Trailer Rating: B+ / B+

Review: (#1) It takes a bit too long to get into the meat of the plot. Establishing her “late” husband’s assholish qualities does set up the rest of the trailer nicely, but could have been done more quickly. That said, this horror thriller does look rather interesting in spite of itself.

(#2) This trailer takes a somewhat new tack, but doesn’t shy away from the creative energies suggested by the title. Unlike the legendary 1933 original, this film seems to remove the empathy for the scientist in favor of making a potent statement about male toxicity and possessiveness, which is definitely an interesting shift in direction.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
