You’re gonna want to watch this before eating lunch.

It’s well known that movies of all genres are marketed differently to different regional audiences in order to have the most financial success — after all, what appeals to us Americans may not be so successful in Europe or Australia. Many of our favorite movies even have different titles (Alien became The 8th Passenger is Death in Hungary, and The Sixth Sense became He’s a Ghost! in China) so it’s not that uncommon to see different strategies used in various places.

In order to market Contracted: Phase II in Russia, director Josh Forbes released a promo video that is quite.. gross, in which his eyeball bleeds, he vomits some black stuff, and sort of turns into a zombie. Our Russian friends, does this make you want to run out and buy a ticket?

My cousin forced me to watch Child’s Play when I was around five years old, and I’ve loved horror movies ever since. I’ll watch anything (the gorier the better) but faint at the sight of blood in real life. Let’s be internet friends -- follow me on Twitter @mrstschinkel.
