For my magazine cover I plan to use some of the features from these real, conventional horror
magazines including the use of a large and bold masthead, the use of storylines in the left third of
the magazine front cover, I will also be using the conventional things such as having a barcode in the
bottom right corner and having the issue number and release date in the top left corner. There will
be one main image on my magazine cover, it will either be a mid-shot or a close up which is
conventional to the genre shown on these magazines, I will also be using the convention of the cover
story by having the main title of the film and a few lines underneath to explain the film.
For my poster I will either be having a main image of one of the characte rs from the film which is
conventional shown through these posters, or I will be having an image of the main setting with the
characters involved in the image. I will have reviews along the top which is shown to be
conventional, I will have a billing block along the bottom under the name of the film, also I will be
having 1 main image and I will have the release date. The colours will be dark and represent the
horror genre such as black, red and white, the font will be varying in size to show the importance of
each section of text, to make sure the image is the main focus.
