After reading the title, I sure do hope that you have that catchy little jingle by the Georgia Satellites in your head. You’re welcome, by the way. The official poster debut for The Darkness is here! If you haven’t heard of The Darkness yet, the synopsis is below.

From the director of the cult classic, WOLF CREEK, Greg McLean, comes the supernatural thriller THE DARKNESS, opening nationwide May 13th, 2016. As a family returns home from vacation at the Grand Canyon, they innocently bring home a supernatural force that preys off their own fears and vulnerabilities, threatening to destroy them from within, while consuming their lives with terrifying consequences.

THE DARKNESS stars Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, David Mazouz, Lucy Fry, Matt Walsh and Jennifer Morrison. Directed by Greg McLean and written by McLean, Shayne Armstrong and S.P. Krause, the film was produced by Jason Blum, Bianca Martino and Matt Kaplan. The film will be released by BH Tilt in coordination with High Top Releasing.


As a designer, I wanted to mention a couple things. First, the composition is great. The rule of thirds is alive and well, although we can’t say the same for everyone in the poster. Second, I have noticed a few different typefaces being used for various designs. I’m not sure if the identity is still being developed or if there is a greater evil at play here. It’s nerdy, I know. Keep your eyes peeled for more on The Darkness, creeping into theaters May 13.
