Creepy Posters

When I went into work today (I didn't work last week because I went to a friend's engagement party) I was greeted by a new poster in front of the pile of posters for sale. With the new store layout those posters are pretty much the first thing a person sees as they put in the code to disarm the alarm. The poster that I saw was this:

Or at least a poster with a similar picture. Now, I know that there are many girls who would love to be greeted by Edward at work in the morning, but I think the poster is creepy. The corpse like complexion isn't really improved by the bad lighting in the store before I turn on the lights. As for the expression and stare... Let's just say I found myself avoiding his stare for most of the day... Needless to say, Robert Pattison isn't really my type, otherwise I would probably love this poster. As it is, it has a place in my top two creepy movie posters I could be greeted by when I go to work.

I was going to take pictures of the two posters today, but I ended up leaving work early because I wasn't feeling well. So I found some approximations of the posters of the internet. I shall have another attempt at taking my own pictures of the posters next week...

The other poster which I told my work mate to move towards the back of the posters because it nearly gave me a heart attack when I first went into the shop one morning is a poster of the Joker. My work mate obliged and the poster has not been on top of the pile for some time now. Maybe we sold it. Since I haven't seen it in a while I can't really remember that well what it looked like. But I think this might be it:

There seems to be a theme when it comes to creepy posters: ghostly complexion? Check. Staring at camera? Check.

As I mentioned above I will attempt to get the actual posters on here next week. I will also post more creepy posters as I encounter them.

  1. I have to say, I don't think that's the Edward poster we have in store. On this poster he actually looks moderately sexy. Look at those cheebones!
