awesome movie poster friday - the THIS TERRIBLE MOVIE PROBABLY DOESN'T DESERVE SUCH AN AMAZING POSTER edition!

Okay, so this is a tiny, tiny AMPF. If I put on my thinking cap, busted out my oversized novelty magnifying glass, and did some microfiche research, I'm sure I'd come up with plenty more examples. However, I unearthed this poster for The Child, and...well, I love The Child but I also recognize that it's not particularly a very good movie. The poster, though...dayum!

It's even better if you pretend they're all filing in for a Tupperware party.

Thank you. This is my audition piece for SNL.

Agreed. The Child is awesome yet awful at the same time. The little girl's line "I don't have to tell you anything" has got to be the single worst bit of dialogue delivery in the history of the medium, with the possible exception of Linda Day George's "Bastards!!!" speech in Pieces.

And, yeah, the poster rocks.

I also think The Child is a great flick. But damn, can you imagine going to the theater, seeing that bad ass poster, and thinking that was the type of movie you were going to get? That is almost as bad as the zombie onslaught promised by the artwork of the VHS for Revenge of the Dead AKA Zeder. Those evil film distributors and they're unethical treatment of moviegoers! Glad those days are over.

I'm I the only one who can see a naked chick looking up at the sky? (4th from the back of the tupperware queue).
Is she in the film, I've not seen it myself. Great poster though!

I see her too! She seems a bit...fleshy. As far as I recall, all the zombies in the film are real rotters. Guess she's just another evil distributor plot!
