A new poster and some images have been released for Cooties.

Directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion, the film stars Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Nasim Pedrad, Jorge Garcia, and Leigh Whannell.

In COOTIES, a mysterious virus hits a small Illinois town affecting only the prepubescent population, transforming them into violent, feral little monsters. The virus centralizes in the town’s elementary school, and quickly the infected students have the teaching staff under siege, acting out deadly revenge fantasies with an eerie sense of childlike glee. Finally, the teachers band together, led by a hapless substitute who grew up in the town, realizing they must do the unthinkable if they hope to survive.

It’s almost like Elijah’s character from The Faculty grew up and became a teacher!

The film will be showing at this years Sundance Film Festival.

I do like the fact the new poster has a 70s vibe to it. Kind of like when I was a kid in the video store checking out the horror films that I was too young to watch.
