Lost in Translation: Day of the Dead

Japan just has a knack for movie posters full of big imagery and no context.  Today is no different as they tackle one of George Romero's most loved films: Day of the Dead...

Holy lack of context, Batman- what's going on?  Was this the best way to sell a movie about a zombie plague?  Seriously now...

Next up, let's take a look at some Hitchcock poster art.  Who wants to bet that it's from Poland?  Stay tuned...


  1. I don't know, I kinda like it. The main image with all the arms is an attention-getter, but the little inserts seem too comical.

  2. One thing we've learned: Day of the Dead is actually titled "A Bunch of Friggin Hands Come Out of the Wall" in Japan

  3. The point is not necessarily that it's bad. It's just so random and has no context to anything. How is that supposed to sell the movie?
