Creepy Poster Art for David Ellis' Humpty Dumpty Movie

In the American south, in a swamp, something was born… Remember a few weeks ago, we wrote about a new project called Humpty Dumpty that Snakes on a Plane director David R. Ellis was attached to direct? Well, we now have some early poster art for it (thanks to ShockTillYouDrop), which gives us one hell of a creepy look at what we can expect. Here's the f'd up synopsis for Humpty Dumpty again: When an alien mother is "abused" by two rednecks in the deep south, she gives birth to a a half-human, half-alien creature that eventually goes on a murderous rampage. Yea, now you remember, right? Take a look at this…
Those two posters above - which look great side-by-side (read the taglines for each from left to right) - come from the official MySpace page for the project. At the time, we didn't really know what what the title Humpty Dumpty had to do with the actual movie - but now it all makes some sense. Apparently the alien offspring looks like some nasty, twisted, screwed up egg-monster, a lot like the mythical "humpty dumpty" from the children's rhyme we all know, but mixed with Pennywise the Clown. Production on Humpy Dumpty is set to start this September under the development of Mark Ordesky's Amber Entertainment.
