Review: (#1) The interesting decision to use negative space to draw one’s attention is a common practice in design and while it can sometimes work (as in this image), it still leaves the impression of why not give more information. Here, the off-kilter positioning helps create tension, though not as effectively as it should. (#2) If you find the thought of a scary creature bursting out of your cheek disturbing, this poster should work for you. The overabundance of pink is distracting. (#3) More interesting use of negative space here with the entire floor providing focal strength to the image at the top of the design. the red-hued aesthetic doesn’t work as well as it should.

Review: (#1) The trailer tries very hard to make these situations scary, but the atmosphere and editing don’t quite heighten interest in the viewer.
(#2) Now that we get to see more details of the film’s plot, the premise makes the concepts a lot scarier than the vignettes suggested by the prior trailer.
