Teaser poster mockup for SAFE

Colds suck. Flu sucks even worse, in that I still have to work. While trying to stay awake and attentive the other night, I banged together a poster mockup for SAFE, the film project I am putting together with screenwriter Thomas L. Hart. This won't ever see print, it's just so everybody involved gets an idea of the tone of the film. Enjoy! - mh
PS - crap, now I can't decide which version I like better. Votes?

Very nice! Recently saw the poster for 27 Dresses. I'm loving that the 50's/60's style is making a comeback to some degree. Happy New Year, Matt!

I am totally diggin the second one more than the first. It has a very nice scary/creepy effect over all. Nice Job!
Hope you have a happy and safe New Year.

Second one!

Oooh, maybe the second...tough call.

My vote would be the first one.

I like the second one, but it much less dramatic. If you were to darken the edges more though, to push the focal area of the face, my vote would possibly lean towards the second then.

The title reads better on the second design though, has a little more pop.

Great posters, Design one is more horror, while design 2 is subtle and subversive, so i guess it also depends on the tone and aesthetic you are trying to convey.

Awesome. work.

An awesome couple of posters, Matt. I think I prefer the first one, though. Can't wait to find out more about this film project of yours.

IMHO: #1 in line. The art tilt enhances the edginess of the concept ... invites the viewer more strongly to enter the design elements, all the more because they're not squared up.
