From IMDb: “This is a thousand percent a true story about how the quiet, all-American town of Salem absolutely lost its mind.”

Poster Rating: C / C / C+

Review: (#1) Meant to be shocking, but turns out more vacant and cheap than shocking. (#2) Too much blank space and not enough information to understand the movie, which won’t pull in viewers.

(#3) This one is a little more interesting than the prior to designs as we have individuals now acting as the faces of the film, which helps give it relatability.

Trailer Rating: C+ / B- / B-

Review: (#1) While the trailer design certainly tries something different, it doesn’t really establish itself rather than what forms the basis for the film and without a sufficiently rootable interest, it doesn’t quite work.

(#2 & #3) This pair of green-band/red-band trailers are similar enough to discussed together, but different enough to be helpful. They paint the portrait of a film that has a lot going for it terms of bat-shit-crazy entertainment, but not enough going for it to make it must-see.
