Review: (#1-#6) Awash in red is the theme for all of these posters. There is very little that differentiates one from the other, some use a lot of fiery colors with a black background, others just bombard the senses with those same flaming choices. Picking one of them to be better than another would be challenging for the general lack of distinctiveness they have. (#7) Ripped apart by women’s hands and demons, this poster is filled with character and plot symbolism, but feels generally uninteresting.

Trailer Rating: B- / B-

Review: (#1 & #2) This pair of trailers is largely identical. The second is the red band trailer, which adds some more blood and some foul language, but doesn’t do anything measurably different. Overall, the trailer has some interesting qualities, but doesn’t have a lot that makes it must-see.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
