Three Posters For The Ruins


(all via BD)

Hmm. I'm trying to think of something write on these, an opinion, and I'm coming up... a little short. I like them. I liked them more upon my first viewing, but the more I look at them, the more I feel... I don't know. They're striking, at first. But then, after staring at them for a bit, they feel a little generic. Opinions?

The Ruins is out April 4th.

I like 'em. Of course, I'm currently in this book's thrall at the moment, so I doubt I have a choice.

The latter two look like rip-offs of The Descent poster.

I think they should go with the first one.

I initially started to to a "Well Played, Poster" entry about these, but then decided against it. I'm glad I did because now I don't particularly care.

The director of "The Ruins" is Carter Smith, whose only previous film was a 36-minute short called "Bugcrush".

"Bugcrush" is one of the most disturbing movies I've every seen. Incredible tension!

Since I also really enjoyed the book on which the movie is based, I'm looking forward to this one.
