pretty lame poster anyway.
when you need to resort to severed fingers you may want to rethink you're design approach.
WTF? I thinks it a great poster.
It caught my eye and made me stop to look at it closer when I was in th theater last week.
Perhaps the cut off finger has something to do with the movie? duh
Yeah, 2 severed fingers. That's pretty weak.
*deletes the 2 severed fingers off of spec for children's ad.
someone gets the opportunity to do a movie poster for a horror flick and that's the best they can some up with?
i'm sorry, golden opportunity wasted in my opinion.
i agree. it has a very cheap feel.
Have you even seen the poster close up?
When it's backlit and you can look at it close up. A+
wheres an example of this poster?
whether the poster is good design or not is not the point, it is the censorship that is the topic.
oh right, they just cropped it? anyway i thought saw was a terrible movie so im not bothered
the poster looks like d.carson overdose + the image reminds me of the world trade center...
...as for censorship, it's pretty weak to be censorsed. there's worse out there...maybe start with all those pill popping ads with small print bibles attached.
+ whoever designed it probably knew that it would be blocked/censored and therefore played the 'bad news is better than no news' caper which works every time...
I say leave it - shit the finger nails are more disturbing then the severed fingers.
dude. it's two cut off bloody fingers.
that poster will be in theaters nationwide. it's pretty bad.
next up two severed heads.
censorship sucks but if you're going to put a movie poster in an area that people of all ages are going to be you have to think about ALL ages, not just the R rated audience the movie is for.
i would understand if it was a studio worried about offending their public or something, (i deal with that all the time) but it's the mpaa. which means that it's just a bunch of prudes trying to keep america in the fifties.
btw, i think the poster is a fantastic solution
as for the poster reminding someone of WTC....hmmmm
i pretty much hate what they did with it now. by zooming in and cropping it off you lost both the design concept AND the killer layout it had
I agree, poster is ugly, the 2 fingers is a cheap solution, I don't mind it in the theaters It probably won't get my eye anyways.
I say leave the poster alone, and let it be shown, who cares!
