Check These Out: Gritty New Character Posters for The Crazies
I'm a sucker for great poster designs and I've got to say, these three are pretty damn cool. Overture Films has created three grotesque character posters for their upcoming horror remake The Crazies. These come from Apple (via STYD) and look a lot better full size, so make sure to click the posters. You will probably see these on display at your local movie theater as they're designed to be put side-by-side. I can already imagine lots of people looking at these and saying "that looks gross!" And that's exactly what they're going for - the shock factor! Plus, I love that they crop the top of the head, so you can't tell who they all really are. Enjoy!
Revolves around the inhabitants of a small Iowa town who are suddenly beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a secret biological weapon from a nearby chemical plant into the water supply.
The Crazies is directed by USC graduate Breck Eisner, of Thoughtcrimes and Sahara previously. The script was written by Scott Kosar (The Machinist, The Amityville Horror) and Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39). It's a remake of George Romero's 1973 film of the same name. Overture Films is bringing The Crazies to theaters starting on February 26th next month. You can follow the official Twitter page for more updates on this.
