It’s got a cool blue tinge, so it must be a poster for a creepy horror movie.
Honestly, the most interesting thing about this poster is the “From the Creators of CRANK” bit (they wrote the movie, by the way). Now, I didn’t actually like CRANK all that much, but it had enough bright moments to leave a mark in my brain. So finding out that those people are involved with this makes me consider the possibility that Pathology could be more entertaining than the typical horror/thriller.
The second most interesting thing is the way the title, credits and tagline are all slanted, in order to make it seem like they were written on the walls. I’m actually a little surprised at how much this little details makes the poster more attention grabbing and adds a certain excitement to the poster. It would be even better if those were attached to an image that also conveyed some excitement and movement by itself.
But outside of that? A hospital setting. Ok. A bunch of surgical tools. Again, ok, but kind of reminiscent of the last SAW movie. And Milo Ventimiglia looking tired, or something. So, what is this film about again? Why is it scary? Why should I be interested in seeing it? Was there no other more powerful image that could have been taken from the movie?
It’s ultimately just a very dull image that says very little.
