This ingeniously grisly movie poster is a hit online

From Dune to The Batman, we've seen some pretty spectacular film posters over the last twelve months. But often the older ones are the best – and taking things right back to 2000, this awesome American Psycho ad is killing it on Reddit right now.

At first glance it just looks like an American flag with the stripes depicted as streaks of blood, right? That would be clever enough – but look a little closer, and it's even more ingenious than that. Like all of the best print ads, there's more going on here than first meets the eye.
