Thanks to bloody-disgusting.com for featuring this project.
The posters feature all my favourite actors Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth & Chloë Grace Moretz.
Each poster contains stills from the new film's trailer & elements borrowed from the new film's posters. For the latter four, I picked the creepy quotes from the new film's official posters. The quotes aptly match with the mood and tone of the posters I created, making it perfectly haunting and bone chilling.
Poster #1 / After seeing the 1977 Suspiria I understood how colour plays a vital role in the movie. However in an article John Squires from Bloody Disgusting talks about the "lack of Color in the ‘Suspiria’ Remake". But anyway I wanted to add a little colour for one of the posters. So for the first poster I recreated the gorgeous peacock I'm obsessed with, from the old movie.
Poster #2 / Inspired from the film's Italian poster. Particularly the typography and the Yellow. Even the still. The old movie has a poster with the similar scene, where maggots are crawling out of the protagonist's face. Special mention for the title typeface, it's the same that appears on the starting credits of the 77's film.
Poster #3 / I got chills while I was working on this one. It's actually two different stills stitched together. It was a wild idea, but really really happy with how it looks.
Poster #4 / Inspired from the original Japanese poster. Used the Japanese typeface from the original.
Poster #5 / Inspired from film's Japanese VHS artwork. Very simple and minimal. Very Japanese.
Poster #6 / I would like to take some credit here. I chose this creepy still from the new film's trailer. This typeface from the 77's film (mostly used) sits perfectly above the scene, and then rest of the details above like a trail. And the quote fits gold.
PS: Some of these posters contain subtle textures, (paper folds, grunge, book edge etc) for an old vintage look.
