Rare Exports Posters

This poster for Rare Exports is so wonderfully wrong I just can’t stop starring at it. Obviously it’s a play on the traditional Christmas painting with some unique elements, the most clear of which is the caged and enraged Santa that is at the core of the movie’s concept. But the way in which they added these elements, and the sheer oddness of the the way in which Father Christmas is painted makes the image so, so weird.

For contrast, see this earlier poster. Also a twist on the same kind of painting, but much more sober and professional looking. Honestly, it probably does a better job of selling the actual movie, but as an image it is a lot less interesting than the latest poster.

The movie also had a teaser poster. Also sober. Also not very likely to cause nightmares.
