Halloween 2 New Poster puts Family first
In case you haven’t already found it elsewhere you should check out the new Halloween 2 poster, which isn’t titled H2 in this one, on the left. The general consensus seems to be that this is a pretty badass poster but I have to disagree. I’m not loving it at all. Brutality alone does not a good poster make and the very photoshopped sky and rain the background is pretty dull. The poster for the first film was better and the posters for Halloween 4 and 5 were much much better than both of them. In any case there It is for all to see. The movie comes to theatres this August. Below I’ve assembled a little retrospective on the much better Halloween Movie posters.
The Poster for Rob Zombies First does a better job at capturing the "Shape" feeling.
This Original Poster From Halloween 2 is creepy and captures the what made the originals good. Its not overbearing or violent but mysterious and spooky. Also that "All NEW" lets you know that the movie is ALL NEW and not a remake. Maybe they should try that with the new poster too?
Last and still the best is the original Halloween One sheet from 1978. You just can't top this classic of movie marketing genius.
