Remember the old song about Humpty Dumpty? Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty together again. As a child I always felt something very morbid about that song. Hollwood must have felt the same way because David R. Ellis the man who brought you the (cult) classic Snakes on a Plane is directing a Humpty Dumpty horror film. They did a scary version of Pinocchio so you knew this one wouldn’t be far behind.
Check out two full sized posters after the jump.
Here are the posters courtesy of First Showing:
“When an alien mother is “abused” by two rednecks in the deep south, she gives birth to a a half-human, half-alien creature that eventually goes on a murderous rampage.”
Why does every story that involves torture or some type of off the wall abuse take place in the American south? I’m not even from there and I notice they get the bad end of the stick. This Humpty looks nothing like the one I saw as a child. Where’s his belt and trousers? What about his little hat? Instead he has bloodshot beady eyes and a the teeth of Pennywise from Stephen King’s It. This film looks creepy,campy, and wreaks of straight to DVD material.
What do you think of the first posters for Humpty Dumpty? Will you see the film in theaters?
