Alien abduction and homicidal maniacs in a 80s horror homage, Upon watching the preview I picked up on the visual of the alien altered character of Mark (central figure in the poster) does a distorted scream, which was clearly a homage to Invasion of the Body Snatchers/ The Thing. So that provided me with the main visual hook for the poster art.
I wanted to interpret the montage design for this poster in a slightly different way, so I lead with the main character screaming and fitted the imagery inside of that. For the montage itself it was all about conveying a sense of fear and loss of control in the characters to build a feeling of terror. Then I wanted to show some of the action but not give away too much, so keeping an air of mystery.
For the title treatment I wanted to keep it more contemporary vibe with another worldly alien vibe. I experimented with different letterforms to convey this and created a logo which although modern is very classic 70s inspired. Which contrasts well with the rest of the design.
