In case the sight, and sounds, of two Madea parody posters at once was too much, scrub out your brain with this slick poster for Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Thai ghost story, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, designed by illustrator Chris Ware. The comics god said of his work:

"I wanted to get at both the transcendent solemnity of the film while keeping some sense of its loose, very unpretentious accessibility. This being a poster, however — and even worse, me not really being a designer — I realized it also had to be somewhat punchy and strange, so as to draw viewers in and pique their curiosity without, hopefully, insulting their intelligence."

Accomplished!
