This 2014 Movie Poster Trend Is Accidentally Freaking Us Out
Ever since 'The Blair Witch Project' introduced a whole generation to shaky cam pseudo-documentaries, there's been something vaguely unsettling about characters facing away from the camera. Even fifteen years (!) out, trying to stare at this image elicits a reaction from fear to straight up panic.
So is Hollywood actively seeking to give movie goers the heebie-jeebies in 2014? Just imagine seeing these posters lined up one after the other and be the judge.
