Poster Analysis – Evil Dead

The next film poster that I will be analysing is for the film evil dead.

This film poster, I believe, follows the common conventions of a typical horror traile. This is because the main colour of the whole poster is red. This is very effective because it gives the audience a sense of the  danger and terror that could be inflicted with this movie. The excessive use of the red gives the impression to the audience that gore and blood is going to be the main focus of this film.  The girl also the audience the sense that she is the main character for the film.

The tagline is very significant as well. “THE MOST TERRIFYING FILM YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE” and this is a good way to get the message across that it will not be like any other horror film that the audience will ever see. Furthermore this poster also says that the prodcuers are from the original producers that did the classic.  From this the audience can expect the same sort of horro and terro that they did from the original film of Evil Dead. Most of the conventions used in this film are the same that are used in most horror poster which gets to the audience and shows them the full terror that can came from that particular film.

As a whole this film poster really sets the scene for the rest of the film amd from this the viewers know what to expect when they see this film, which will consist of jumpy moments and the main character, which is the little girl

Another convention about this poster is the fact that the girl iswalking away and looks like she has already been killed by the way that she is standing and the stance that she has taken.
