Review: (#1) It’s weird enough to get people curious, but not interesting enough to draw them into the theater. (#2) While there are some barely identifiable images here, they blend too well together and subsequently create little excitement. (#3) This triptych maintains the red hues of other designs, but doesn’t add anything of visual interest to the conversation. (#4) While this speaks to the film’s body-horror style, it’s not the kind of appealing that will draw audiences to the theater. (#5) It’s a more intriguing design than any of the others, but still manages to feel cheap. (#6-#8) This trio of character designs are as unappealing as many of their predecessors.
Trailer Rating: B- / B-

Review: (#1 & #2) These two trailers are similar enough that there’s not much point to discussing them separately. Together, they present a modest expression of the strangeness the film embraces and that might be enough to draw in curiosity-seekers. The narrative doesn’t seem that evocative, though.
