Simple, Retro Poster for Sundance Selected Midnight Horror 'Cooties'

January 14, 2014


There's always fun to be had with the Midnight section at the Sundance Film Festival, and that's where oddball horror and comedy films usually make their debut up in the mountains. One such film is Cooties, written by Saw scribe Leigh Wannell and "Glee" co-executive producer and co-creator Ian Brennan. The film features an impressive cast that includes Wannell himself along with The Faculty star Elijah Wood returning to horror in a high school setting in the story of a virus that hits a small Illinois town and turns the young children into deadly little monsters little monsters. Now we have a cool retro poster from Jay Shaw at Kingdom of Nonsense and some first look photos showing off the film's ensemble cast. Look now!

Here's the first poster for Jonathan Milott & Cary Murnion's Cooties (click for much larger version):


And here's some first look photos from the film featuring the great cast:




Cooties is directed by Jonathan Milott & Cary Murnion, with a script from Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) and Ian Brennan ("Glee"). In the film, a mysterious virus hits a small Illinois town, affecting only the prepubescent population, transforming them into violent, feral little monsters.  The virus centralizes in the town's elementary school, and quickly the infected students have the teaching staff under siege, acting out deadly revenge fantasies with an eerie sense of childlike glee. Finally, the teachers band together, realizing they must do the unthinkable if they hope to survive. Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Nasim Pedrad & Jorge Garcia star in the film premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
