Six New Blackout Posters Show Some Character(s)

The Blackout recently caught a lot of crap for having posters that resembled those from Feast. Yes, it showed the profile of a monster looking down, etc. Well, the folks behind the film aren't going to have to worry about those comparisons again as their six new character one-sheets are truly unique, albeit a bit boring.
