From IMDb: “Unhinged is a psychological thriller that takes something we’ve all experienced – road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion.”

Poster Rating: C- / C- / C+ (3) / C

Review: (#1) It’s dull, lifeless and unimpressive.

(#2) My dislike of this color scheme can be explained entirely with this poster, which uses the conceit exclusively without any benefit. (#3-#5) While the first and last of these three designs seem to go together, the middle one doesn’t entirely. However, with the color scheme, they can be considered part of the same design pass. They are interesting for being attempts at originality, even if unsuccessful in execution. (#6) It’s the problems I have with black, white, and red that plague this poster as the general concept isn’t entirely unexpected or unwarranted.

Trailer Rating: B- / B

Review: (#1) Road rage has been tackled numerous times and there’s something familiar about this film, but it’s also not a concept that has been run into the ground, which makes it look mildly diverting.

(#2) Adding the voice over elements of an instructional video from decades ago, the new trailer adds a small bit of originality to an otherwise functional trailer design that doesn’t quite entice, but doesn’t entirely turn away a potential audience.
