Check This Out: Great Poster for Sean Ellis' The Broken

Great Poster for Sean Ellis' The Broken

Adding to this week's pile of great new posters, we've discovered one for an indie horror film called The Broken. Much like the poster for Sandra Bullock's Premonition last year, this may be heralded as a fantastic design even though the film itself isn't that great. For those curious to know more, The Broken is psychological thriller about a woman (Lena Headey) whose life descends into nightmare after she sees an apparent double of herself driving by in her own car. It first premiered at Sundance but didn't gain enough buzz to go very far . I'm sure this poster will help, but I don't think it'll be enough to make it a hit.

Thanks especially to IMPAwards for digging this beauty up. As cool as this looks, it's not anything I'm dying to put up on my wall, but I hope there are others who do love it enough to do that. Thoughts?

The Broken Poster

The Broken is both written and directed by Sean Ellis, of Left Turn and Cashback previously. The film first premiered in the Midnight Madness section of Sundance earlier this year, eventually being picked up by After Dark Films. The Broken will now show as part of the After Dark Horrorfest next January, 2009.

    Look's pretty interesting for a poster but my advice is you can't judge a film by it's poster
  • A bit to literal for my taste. i would just liked to see the pic without all the photoshop hub bub.

    I love this site, but I often disagree with you what you claim to be "great posters". . . .i mean, obviously no one is apt to click a link that reads: "Maybe Check This Out: Mediocre Poster for Sean Ellis' The Broken featuring-lame-photoshop-where-it-doesnt-really-look-like-an-elliptical-structure-of-glass-but-instead-two-shattered-panes-layered-ontop-of-one-another—by-the-way-isnt-it-interesting-that-the-lead-actresses-name-is-Headey-and-the-poster-for-broken-features-a-broken-head."
