2003 Internet Movie Poster Awards - Best Poster Nominees
Cold Creek Manor
It's so rare to find subtle film posters. In this case, an empty field
takes up the bulk of the poster. In the distance we see a house and right
before us we see photographs strewn about. And we know this house has a
past, even without reading the tag line. A very gutsy design.
I always wanted to see William H. Macy in neon. A great idea for a film
set in the casino world. Extremely original.
It was a close race between this version of the poster and the version
featuring the entire cast of sea creatures.
But in the end, simplicity won out. Just a beautiful image of the enormous
shark and the two frightened little fish huddling together.
The bloody handprint made up of the shadowy figures and screaming face
creates a great feeling of fear and of being stalked. A great idea for
Pirates of the Caribbean
A wonderful teaser poster of a skeleton pirate steering his ship through
the driving rain. Released before "curse of the black pearl" was added
to the title, this poster perfectly captures the horror of the undead pirates.
The only thing missing is any hint of the film's humor.
