Movie Poster Cliches – Backs Turned

Movie Poster Cliches – Backs Turned

by | Mar 17, 2017

It seems that movie poster designers have never heard that it’s rude to turn your back on someone, as the movie poster cliché grows in popularity. Usually depicting a central character with their backs to the viewer, this technique is similar to another we have previously looked at, which sees women appear headless. By either removing or reducing the character’s face, it creates tension or suspense. Faces express emotion and when these are removed from the picture it is left to the body to emote what is happening. Here we look at a selection of Horror Movie Posters that dare to bare, Movie Poster Cliches – Backs Turned!

Sometimes is best to go BACK to basics and create something from SCRATCH, rather than copy the tends of others. Why not DROP us your thoughts in the comments below?
