This years major break-out voice in Horror (comedy) was Jordan Peele’s Get Out. Upon its original release, it was unfortunately saddled with perhaps the worst poster of the year (so far). Fortunately there is Mondo who have taken a couple key design elements and images and have made a pair of superb black and white (after all, isn’t that what the movie is about?) posters. The above poster takes the tea-cup from the film and grafts on Daniel Kaluuya to almost give it the surreal feel of a vintage Polish style poster, if you are familiar with what is going on in the movie, having a spoon ‘stir’ his brain is equally effective as an image. Dropping the credit block in the middle is also an interesting touch, who says these ‘required elements’ need be at the bottom.
A second Mondo poster featuring the ‘dark place’ from the film is solid, but nowhere near as eye-catching as the above one.
Thanks to Birth.Movies.Death for the hook-up here.
