I always hated those optical illusion black and white things that could be more than one image, depending on how you look at it. They always made me feel like I might be missing something that everybody else is seeing: “Wow, that witch flying a frog into Santa’s house is pretty amazing!” meanwhile I’m seeing a glass.
And that is exactly how I feel about this new poster for The Family that Prey’s. I’m pretty sure there is something really smart hidden in the image. And I have no clue what it is. I look at it one way. Then I look at it another way. I try to convince myself that I’m seeing something, and then I just have to give up.
I can see a hand, for sure. Maybe a face. But I keep thinking there must be something else. And some symbolism that connects these things together. And I’m sure that if I got it I would be blown away.
But I just don’t get it.
See, I knew I was missing something. Strangling, of course.
