Happy Poster

Chainsaws! (click for larger image)Earlier this week we informed you about the Japanese horror pic Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge when it appeared at AFM (“Negative Happy at AFM” – November 2007). The tale of a high school sissy trying to save the woman he loves from a chainsaw brandishing madman sounds cool, but the poster isn’t really selling it to me.

Twitch nabbed the poster for Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge and it’s a little “meh.” There’s a certain ’70s style to it, and maybe we’ve just gotten so used to the flashy posters in the US that this kind of thing doesn’t hit the right chords.

If you’re still willing to give this flick a chance, then visit the official site and check out the trailer here.

    My two cents… that is an ass-tastic poster.

  • The Butcher

    Here’ my two cents: The poster almost seems “upside down”.
    They should put the killer and the moon larger and put them ABOVE the swashes of the two main characters. The moon should be “in the sky”, and the killer is “above” them in the power intrinsic. It seems more logical all the way around. Then I think the poster would work better.
