Dead Shadows Poster Crop

Last time we featured a horror poster that had Lovecraft-esque tentacles on it, it actually turned out to be pretty cool (at least the finished film). Now we've got another. A couple of great horror posters popped up recently and I wanted to write about both. The first is a new banner for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the Guillermo del Toro produced horror/thriller that was delayed until later this year (watch the teaser trailer). That new banner, on the right below, comes from Fangoria. The other comes from Bloody-Disgusting and is a promo poster for a French horror called Dead Shadows and damn does it kick ass. Check ’em out below!

Dead Shadows  Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Dead Shadows comes from David Cholewa starring Fabian Wolfrom, Gwendolyn Gourvenec and John Fallon. "Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago - the same day that Hayley's Comet could be seen from earth." Years later there's a new comet coming and everyone is throwing a party, but as night falls, Chris notices people begin to act stranger and stranger. Sounds good, I'm sold on that poster alone. Not sure when it will be released as we just found out about it, but thankfully Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is scheduled to arrive on August 26th. Stay tuned!
