Worst Movie Poster of the Day – The Chaperone

From the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot department comes this poster for Triple-H’s upcoming ‘film’, The Chaperone.

So creepy it could actually have been the tag line for a horror movie that probably would have been far more entertaining.

Anyway, I will pass on this one.
