These ‘The Void’ Posters Promise Something Worse Than Hell

Designed by Gravillis Inc, io9 just premiered a trio of absolutely stunning new one-sheets for the Lovecraftian nightmare, The Void, now in limited theaters and VOD platforms.

While none of the art does anything to sell the gore, they do promise something worse than hell, while also being striking, bold and god damn beautiful.

The Void, which I called “a dark, demented, and disgusting horror film that’s going to live among the greatest body horror films of all time,” made its world premiere at Fantastic Fest earlier last year, followed by additional festival screenings at the London Film Festival, Toronto After Dark Film Festival, Stockholm International Film Festival, and Abertoir Horror Festival.

In ‘The Void’, officer Daniel Carter (Aaron Poole) happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road while he’s in the middle of a routine patrol. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late.

Written and directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski of Astron-6, and starring Aaron Poole, Ellen Wong, Kathleen Munroe, Stephanie Belding, and Kenneth Welsh, The Void is a must see for hardcore horror fans that we’re going to talk a lot about later this year.

    • Dan Warren (Forgottenretroworl

      An eye in a pyramid in an eye. Surreal.

  • Geno1987

    Best horror movie of the year

  • GOD DAMN THESE LOOK GREAT!! VERY EXCITED TO SEE THIS ONE!

  • Härra Pärnits

    Just saw the movie, hope they make a sequel!

  • Dan Warren (Forgottenretroworl

    Just seen the movie. It’s like a wild mix of The Thing, Event Horizon, Hellraiser, and The Beyond. Apparently this is what the illuminati are really about 😉

    • Richter Belmont

      I’d also add Prince Of Darkness and Lord Of Illusions, as well. Oh, and Silent Hill.

      • Dan Warren (Forgottenretroworl

        Indeed. Other ones that I really liked and could be compared, though POD had an atmosphere you could cut with a knife without resulting to gore.

  • Richter Belmont

    Good film. Recommended for people who love Lovecraft and cosmic horror in general.

  • marklola12 .

    It’s ok, won’t say it’s better than that because i don’t think it is…If you have nothing to watch then this is a ok watch, it’s a mess of a film though

  • Mehliens

    The film is terribad. I can’t recommend it to anyone, especially not to someone who wants to see a true horror film. This was just a bland creature feature disguised as cosmic horror. Watch Prince if Darkness for the real deal.

    • Josh_the_Jawa

      Agreed. So many films made like 30 years ago have better creature effects and more interesting characters.

    • marklola12 .

      I agree the movie is horrid, then this site wont say that because they get hard over practical effects wether the movie itself is good or not

  • GrimGrinGhost

    Great on special effects, sound and lighting. Shockingly bad on everything else. Sadly.

  • J Jett

    the movie had great atmosphere/cinematography, great special FX and the acting was pretty decent/good (I adore Kathleen Munroe) but the storyline was confusing. the pacing was an issue too. the movie drags in the middle of the film (once Kathleen’s character disappears). but overall i thought it was decent. i think with a better script/story it would have been a lot better. i look forward to seeing what the 2 directors of the film create in the future.

    oh and i like these posters above.

    • zob rombie

      I agree completely especially regarding the story.

  • zob rombie

    I’m about to watch it. So fucking excited.
    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!

  • Justin Boland

    Takes all kinds, I guess. To me, The Void was 9/10. Amazing punch for an indie film on a tight budget.

  • LivingDeadMan

    I’m watching it right now. Looking like an instant classic so far.

  • Wil McMullen

    This year is turning out to be pretty awesome in horror! Black Coats Daughter, Life, Belko Experiment and now The Void, are among some of my favoites… Thus far. Void was definitely an awesomely bizarre film- that I will no doubt re-watch again and again.

  • Colin Christian

    I like the film,some of it was a bit too dark though,I mean,I couldn’t see anything during the flickering lights scene,but I did like the Lovecraft feel to it,one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    • Wil McMullen

      I agree with you about the film appearing too dark at times. However, that was my only gripe.

  • Cheshire TrollCat

    Fun movie. You should watch it.

  • KennyThaKilla

    I liked it, but wish they had delved into the mythology behind these evil hooded monks (aliens? triangle enthusiasts?) since we were never really clued in to exactly WTF was going on.

    • zob rombie

      Absolutely. That was the thing that intrigued me the most about the trailer.

  • zob rombie

    Honestly, I was super mega hyped about this movie (I probably mentioned it in here…) the thing that intrigued me the most were the ku lkux triangle cult, which, unfortunately doesn’t get deepened that much, if any, in the movie.

    Don’t get me wrong, the movie is a shitload of fun and the monsters are fucking great.
    The story? Eh…
    I know I know, it’s a fucking horror, but still. I thought it was pretty lazy and even though I love cryptic horror when we don’t know why the horror developing on screen happens, in this case, it doesn’t work at all.
    Again, a must see for any horror fan, but the poor story (IMO obviously) kinda let me down.

    • J Jett

      zob, i agree 100%. i liked pretty much everything about the film EXCEPT for the storyline/script. it really didn’t seem to make any sense.
