The illustration in this poster is astounding, a great deal of time and planning has been focused into the illustration..I think it really makes the poster admirable.
This poster also focuses on a highly detailed, impressive illustration, type is also integrated however, with the black clouds overlapping 'mummy', but not effecting readability. I feel this brings the poster together more and this successfully promotes the film.
'Day of the Dead', this poster uses its previous films to deliver the third installment of the 'deads'. Having a clip of the previous poster design at the top takes the reader back through their memory of seeing that film. This is a witty idea as something as simple as a colour change clearly marks a different film.
Utilising black space, the title of the film stands out more, and works fluently with the illustration, rather than fighting with it. 'Re-Animator' can be noticed from afar, and the detailed illustration can be sunk in when up close.
I admire the simple illustration in this film poster. The transformation of woman to beast is vitally the main theme throughout the film, this is shown in the poster but not completely parts are left to the audiences apprehension such as what characters turn, what exactly they turn into, how they turn, why they turn, what happens when they turn, and what it looks like in the film, these are points which the illustration does not reveal thanks to its simplicity.
