Bloody American Propaganda Poster for 'Undocumented' Horror Flick
One of my favorite films from Fantastic Fest 2010 was a little horror flick from up and comer Chris Peckover entitled Undocumented. The film, very much grounded in some of the real life social horrors our country is experiencing, focuses on some young filmmakers as they follow undocumented illegal immigrants crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. in hopes of a better life. That's when things go horribly wrong, as both groups are kidnapped and tortured by a group of American extremists, led by the villainous Peter Stormare (Fargo, Big Lebowski). And now we have a bloody star-spangled poster below!
Here's the bloody new poster for Chris Peckover's Undocumented coutresy of Twitch:
What a poster! I'd salute that…the design…not the message…you know what I mean. One thing is for sure; it is definitely an improvement over the initial teaser poster for the film, which riffed on the instantly iconic design from The Social Network poster (a poster trend that was stale as soon as it started). According to Undocumented producer Keith Calder, via his Twitter, this poster was designed by New York-based graphic designer Laz Marquez, who has done some professional TV & film design in the past, along with his own minimalistic takes on classic films (such as a beautiful Hitchcock series that you must check out).
Co-written by the director and Joe Peterson, Undocumented also stars Scott Mechlowicz (Eurotrip, Mean Creek), Kevin Weisman (Clerks II), and Noah Segan (Looper, Brothers Bloom, Brick). IFC Midnight will release the film this weekend at IFC Center in New York before it hits VOD the following weekend.
