Charisma Carpenter in Psychosis

This poster should definitely get a few of you in the mood for Halloween. Our horror friends at STYD have debuted the official poster for Reg Traviss' Psychosis starring Charisma Carpenter. This horror thriller is about a horror novelist (Carpenter) who relocates with her husband to a beautiful English mansion. Once there she begins seeing visions of a horrible massacre that happened 15 years earlier. Desperate to prove she isn't losing her mind, Susan must uncover the secrets behind the massacre or risk becoming a victim herself. Sounds fun. Check out this rather creepy poster that reminds me a bit of the Drag Me to Hell poster below.

Psychosis Poster

I'm featuring this not because it's a great movie, but because I think it's a wonderfully creepy poster, the perfect kind to get you in the mood to be scared out of your mind on Halloween. I admire and appreciate well designed posters, even for the worst movies and/or straight-to-DVD crap. Not that this necessarily is a bad movie (I haven't seen it), but I'm not expecting much. This was apparently originally titled Vivid, but I guess that was too phonographic to sell, so they retitled it to Psychosis. Not sure what the release plans are, but it's being put out by Imagination Worldwide, Red Sparrow and Kingsway Films, so check with them.

    "... a horror novelist relocates with her husband to a beautiful English mansion. Once there she begins seeing visions of a horrible massacre that happened 15 years earlier..." There are like 800 movies out there with the same premise!! Just change "horror novelist" for "woman, family, man, husband, wife, etc" and "15 years" for "10 year, 50 years, 10 years, 25 yeras, and so on"

    Cool concept, but execution sucks. The image of the house ruins it; it's very flat compared to the face and hands.

    i watched the trailer on STYD........pretty "meh".
  • MrMew
    She was so hot in buffy and angel (until she got that lame hair cut later in the angel series)
  • Django
    Is it me or she look exactly like Eliza Dushku in this pic? (I know she'll hate hearing that but they're both gorgeous!)
  • thejugfather
    it's okay but the premise sounds lame.....

    I attended a test screening of this movie in the summer when it was called Vivid. The trailer on STYD seems like for a different movie of the one I watched. now I won't give any spoilers but the movie I watched contained a lot of violence, very bloody and had lots of sex. It has merits too, the storyline is very unusual and different to most horrors. Am confused why this trailer seems so generic??

    i think the poster and the trailer look great! I can't wait to see this. Big thumbs up.
  • Fuelbot
    Looks like the poster for The Ruins.
  • Omg she's hot.. Dushku got nothing on Carpenter!
  • Tastebloods
    This poster is wicked. The trailer looks great too. Much better than most of these independent horror films I see.
  • ObiWop
    Didn't we have this already with "The Shining" and many others? I'll bet it'll be another PG-13 crapfest.
  • Kayn
    can't see that it'll be a PG-13 cert, unless the censors cut it pieces, theres like three rape scenes in the movie, axes waving around and some nasty gore-ish deaths.
