Comic-Con Posters: The Mist and Midnight Meat Train

Here are two other posters that were featured during Comic-Con. Both are for upcoming horror movie’s based on short stories from well known horror authors.

First up we have the mist, which will be the third film directed by Frank Darabont and based on Stephen King’s works.

The Mist Poister

I’m not sure how I feel about this poster. I think the idea of having the whole image covered in mist is clever, and the whole poster has a old time horror movie feel that I find very interesting. On the other hand, I think that when it comes to the mist the idea was better than the execution, as it ends up making the image seem grainy in a way that feels slightly wrong. And the green tone of the poster is unappealing.

And here is the poster for Midnight Meat Train, based on the Clive Baker short story and directed by Ryuhei Kitamura.

I’m way more fascinated by this poster than I should be. The whole empty subway meats a slaughterhouse thing just seems disturbing and creepy in a way that truly hits home for me. This movie didn’t even register in my radar before I saw the poster, but know I find myself looking forward to seeing it.

I probably won’t be covering all of the Comic-Con posters here, at least no right now. But you can get a look at them over at FisrtShowing. Also, over at FilmGrotto John has some interesting commentary on all of them, so be sure to check that out.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
