[Image description: Look, I know I keep posting this stuff, but I really feel like this movie is either going to be super awesome or… an entertaining failure, or something. This is the guy who brought us Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Come on. It’ll be pretty to look at. Anyway. If you “like” the Twixt page on Facebook, they let you vote on posters. Here are all four, with quick descriptions:

1) Sickly greenish background; tiny “FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA PRESENTS” at the top; “TWIXT” at the bottom in the leafy red font, with Val Kilmer’s and Bruce Dern’s names above and Elle Fanning’s and Ben Chaplin’s below. Bloody handprints on the lower left and right edges. A shadowy Elle Fanning with braided blonde hair (she’s a Fanning; of course it’s blonde), blood running down her face and neck, pauses with a worried expression: “Did I leave the gas on? NO! I’M A FUCKING GHOST!”

2) Same title treatment, except now the actors’ names are in white (title still in red over the black bottom third of the poster). Elle Fanning’s mouth, nose, and red under-eye makeup are visible; her finger is drawing the letter V (her character’s name) on a fogged window. This is actually my favorite, due to saturated colors that are both warm and spooky, and the simplicity of the image.

3) Same title treatment, red title and white actor names. Elle Fanning is wearing a loose white dress or blouse with a pattern of bloody handprints and red leaves that are similar to the Photoshop brushes used in the title font. Her hair is braided and blood is running down her face and neck and she is PISSED OFF because SHE’S the one in all the posters and SHE’S the only one who’s been in a big-budget movie lately and yet HER NAME IS STILL BELOW THE TITLE.

4) DIFFERENT TITLE TREATMENT NOW, THROWIN’ ME FOR A LOOP. This one’s all sepia-tone with the actors’ names across the top and the title still at the bottom, all in a sepia-compatible beige font, garnished with bloody handprints. Upper left: half of the reverse side of a clock, so that all the numbers are backwards; the minute hand is on 10. There are more small bloody handprints on it, so we’ve met our quota. In the middle, Elle Fanning is in the chemise/corset costume from the movie still, and yes, that is a random braid across her forehead. Upper right: a small disembodied Kilmer head with an expression of terror: “FUCK! We’re in an episode of The Twilight Zone!”]

[Image description: Movie poster, a few bits of red on a plain white background. Upper left, a smudge of blood. Across the top: a leafy motif that immediately made me wonder if they were using Designfruit brushes. Right side: a bloody handprint, then a second handprint in the lower right corner. Middle, tiny red font: “FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA presents.” Large, plain red font, with leafy/ferny embellishments added: “TWIXT.”]

You know, Coppola’s the better filmmaker and Ben Chaplin’s the better-looking Poe, but I gotta give it to The Raven's poster on this one. It’s interesting how the both posters have the similar “big white background, classy gore” motif going on, though.

[Image description: a still from Twixt. On the right, Ben Chaplin IS! a pretty creditable Edgar Allan Poe. The picture is desaturated almost entirely to grey, except for the yellow-orange light in the lantern he’s holding. Like Elle Fanning in the other picture, he is also palely glowy. To the left, Val Kilmer IS! a puffy dude in a trenchcoat and a ponytail. Chaplin-Poe seems resignedly sadface about whatever they’re looking at; Kilmer has a slightly more WTF expression.]

Not to be confused with the movie about Edgar Cusack Poe.

[Image description: NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WOULD BE AWESOME COSTUMES IN THE RAVEN! EXCITE. Who is this, Alice Eve? Long blonde curled hair falling down her back, twisted and pulled back at the top, with sort of a headband/tiara with stars. (It reminds me a little of the Empress Elisabeth-style costume Emmy Rossum had in Phantom of the Opera for “Think of Me.”) She’s looking over her shoulder—speaking of which, it’s an off-the-shoulder 1860s-style gown, or at least it looks like one from what we see, from the elbow up. It’s sort of a mint green, has cap sleeves, and—I’m having a hard time thinking how to describe the shoulderline, as it were, which has some really interesting scalloped frilly business going on. I think she’s holding a matching mask? Also, white wrist gloves and a bracelet.]

[Image description: A surprisingly cool poster for the John Cusack IS Edgar Allan Poe (INTENNNNSE) movie The Raven. White background. Top of the poster, a raven swooping in over a dark splash of blood, which itself transitions into a tiny flock of ravens. Middle left, another tiny flock of blood ravens transitioning into a scratchy blood-black murder font: “THE RAVEN.” Tiny normal type, middle right: “JOHN CUSACK IS EDGAR ALLAN POE.” (Dude, I thought I was joking about that.) Bottom right, a glass ink bottle turned over, blackish-red blood/ink spilling out; a small pool of blood/ink; and a black quill feather.]

[Image description: Cusack is intensing at a point just past the right of the camera as he hulks down the street in black leather and waistcoat and cravat and blaaaaack. His facial hair and swept-back cranial foliage are vaguely Poevian. INTENNNNNSE.]

@cleolinda: RT @EW: First Look: @johncusack as Edgar Allan Poe in ‘The Raven’

@NoelCT: @cleolinda Are you sure Cusack is playing Poe? It looks more like he’s staring in a bio pic of Nicolas Cage.
