Help Choose a Bloody Poster Design for Coppola's 'Twixt' on Facebook
If you missed it, Francis Ford Coppola announced during his panel at Comic-Con that he'd be taking his new horror film Twixt on a 30-day tour to show audiences the film with a live element included (live music, live editing). His new gothic horror, starring Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning, was also included as part of the Toronto Film Festival line-up this fall. Since Coppola and co. have finally start unveiling it, it's time to ramp up marketing, and they're taking to Facebook to host a poster contest for the first poster. Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting for the heads up, so jump over to Facebook and vote for your favorite. Examples below.
I voted upper left, only because I thought it was the best out of all four, but none of them are that great. As a recap, Francis Ford Coppola presents Twixt stars Val Kilmer as writer with a career in decline who arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl, who is obviously key to this story, hence her face appearing on all the posters. The other photo is one of the new ones revealed on TIFF.net, as part of the Toronto Film Fest, which is where I'll probably see this film in its entirety. Coppola getting back into the groove again with some horror, I just hope this is actually any good!
I like the one with the clock. But I'd prefer just Elle Fanning and the clock in it!

Id have to go with#4 also.Id save the veiwers horror of seeing her gruesome looks for the theater.With this poster it is still intriguing without giving away the shock element.If in fact it is the same girl.Either way Id save the horror for the theater.Quick flashes on the trailer should suffice.

I choose the poster at the bottom right-the one with the clock. It has old-fashioned sensibilities, which seems to work well in recent flicks. It also has an eerie Alfred Hitchcock quality to it that grabs attention and yet, doesn't reveal anything!

They're all not that good

I am baffled by all this.

None of them. Coppola seriously needs to retire gracefully. He's trying to connect with Gen-Y and it's almost embarrassing.

#2 is best, but #4 would be better with the clock in the background. I hope this isn't a half-assed movie. I want to see Kilmer do something good again. With the exception of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, it's been a long time since I've seen him in anything worth watching.

Since there is not an option of choosing none of the 4 posters, I will choose the least worst poster, no#2.

Is that Val Kilmer or Col. Kurtz?
