New Synchronic Film Poster from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead Is a Work of Art

In 2014, Horror Theory called Resolution one of the greatest indie horror films of all time. And as we head into our best horror films of the decade (2010-2019) this October for the 2010s Fear and Now Horror-Thon, you should expect to hear about that absolute masterclass in shockingly immersive indie filmmaking once more. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of the work of filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.

Their attention to detail with their films spills over into their poster design. From Spring to The Endless, these guys know how to slap together a poster more compelling than most trailers.

Check out the poster for Synchronic below:

Synchronic is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 23, 2020.
