This film poster is not as highly polished as inception as it was made in 1960 so the access to technical editing was very limited. The main character, the women, takes up most of the poster, she in a bra and underskirt making her look seductive but her expression is pretified, selling sex with scare. The main male character is completely red, this speaks volumes as it later turns out he is evil. The title Psycho is also written in yellow but it is torn up into pieces like a jigsaw puzzle put back together showing this film is a murder msytery.This films poster has very dark and gritty colours, dark mud browns, yellows and blacks, as well as subtle bits of red. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman have their faces put on the poster very close up. They are back to back, looking inquisitively and seriously into the camera. Between them is the seven deadly sins written in a list vertically. Each word has a red slash through it, almost like ticking them off a checklist which gives away that this film has the seven deadly sins as the theme and it is most definately a murder mystery!
These film posters worked well to fit the forms and convention of our film genre. The pattern through out these posters shows bold, bright colours and text. The colours are definately suited to the films and you can tell straight away they are thrillers, yet each are so very different from one another. So we decided to make our film poster focus on scissors and the hair rather than putting the characters in the poster, this doesn't fit to the forms and conventions of most thriller film posters but we thought it very abstract and unique and would make the audience form ideas in their head about the film rather than giving them a very obvious clue about what happens. If we were to realistically distribute and market this film i think the film poster we make would work successfully to attract our specific target audience as it looks mature enough for 30 year olds yet simple enough for 16 year olds.
