Hi there!  Despite the carnival-like title, my collection isn't all that groovy. In fact, despite having thousands of posters--all in storage of one kind or another at the moment until I move back into my house (which will be another year at least--unless I decide to move to the Bay Area or Washington state, but that's another story...), I have NOTHING on my walls where I'm living at the current time (EEK! NAKED walls! SHOCKING!!). That doesn't stop me from buying, buying, BUYING...and I've got tubes and boxes filled of posters that have yet to see the light of day since coming in to my possession.

So what I am posting is a sampling of my latest 10 purchases from the last week or so. The only way I can show you any of my other stuff is to show you my low-res video from 2008 I made of most of my framed movie posters at the time ( Here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDCf3DYtxOU&feature=youtu.be  ) or the movie poster thread I started on another site that shows my purchases since the beginning of 2015 (Here: http://forums.fanbolt.com/topic/61/movie-poster-collectors-thread/ )

But for my first official post here (which I also posted on that other site), I thought I'd share these very humble posters:

"SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED"!!!!  I think I already have a copy of this poster, but a back up is always nice. I mean, who wouldn't want another poster with a rampaging albino bigfoot running up the stairs? Zowie! Such a cheesy-fabulous poster for a cheesy-fabulous movie! WATCH OUT!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Shriek%20of%20the%20mutilated_zps2rtaow3w.jpg)


Next, one of my favorite films of the early 80s, "Tess". I soooo wanted this to win Best Picture the year it was nominated. I forgot what it lost to, but as I recall, it was just some lame Hollywood product movie. Directed by Roman Polanski, starring Nastassia Kinski and based on a Thomas Hardy novel, this was just a brilliant and beautiful film (and there was not a single zombie in sight! Wow!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tess_ver1_xlg_zpsvbcwz2bl.jpg)

It's always cool to score a Boris Karloff poster, especially since I'll NEVER get any of the "Frankenstein" stuff from ANY of the releases (sigh...). I am pretty sure I already have a "Mondo Balordo" poster already--but with everything still packed away for another year, I can NOT be sure. Love those old "Mondo" flicks though...strange and weird and silly stuff (especially the obviously FAKED ones! Ha!).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Mondo%20Balordo_zpsgjjikosx.jpg)



Jeepers! Next up is the exploitation flick that could never be made today (wouldn't be PC at all!)...direct from the sleazy 70s it's "MANDINGO"!!! Again, I think I have a copy or two of this poster already. This poster is obviously trying to riff on "Gone With the Wind". Dino De Laurentis unleashed a lot of wonderful trash on the world! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mandingo_zps4u890xid.jpg)


"My Beautiful Laundrette"...NOT the most beautiful poster in the world, but... You ever go to buy something and look around to see what else the seller has, see a couple of "well, maybe...why not?" items and bid on all of them (the one item you really want and the other stuff you figure you'd pad out the shipping costs with, especially when those items close about the same time)...and you LOSE the ONE thing you really wanted and get stuck with the extraneous stuff?  This purchase is one of those instances. Oh well, the movie holds a weird sort of memory for me... So...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/My%20Beautiful%20Laundrette_zps3rzljih9.jpg)


"MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD MONSTER LATE SHOW"---yes,if you saw this up for auction recently,I was the fool (???) who bought it. I apologize for the "emovieposter" watermark, but I could find no other picture of this poster online and it has not arrived yet. There was something about it--the sleazy, slapped together (from other movie art. The screaming woman from the 1981 "Nightmare" poster is fairly obvious) art work, the DARE YOU SEE IT horror verbiage and the fact they don't bother to mention which chillers the audience would be seeing (so ANYTHING could be shown---and the poster could be used again and again and again, perhaps?). It's the closest thing to one of those old late night horror program posters from the 50s and 60s I'll ever be able to afford, so I got it. Kind of cool, but kind of dull as well. (Could use a bit of color and pizzazz,perhaps...). Still very fun in its own way.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mad_monster_late_show_SD01339_C_zpsqwwgrhoj.jpg)


"THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED"--I saw this not too long ago. It was an late 60s/early 70s Euro thing and it was well made, nice location/sets and atmosphere...but kind of plodding. The twist ending totally reminded me of another 80s Euro slasher that I now realize totally ripped off the ending of HOUSE THAT SCREAMED. Anyway, it was cheap and...why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/house%20screamed_zpsguxvikv8.jpg)


"PSYCHO BEACH PARTY"---Being a life long fan of the Frankie and Annette "Beach Party" films, I saw the play version of this years ago. The play--at least the version I saw--was hilarious. The movie...eh, not so much. I don't know what was lost in translation, but it almost seemed like a different story than the play I remembered. Oh well,it was set in the Beach Party era and the poster has some fun graphics and the title is groovy... Again,why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Psycho%20Beach%20Party_zpsnk7bfot9.jpg)


Another poster I am almost sure I already have, EMBRYO is a 70s sci-fi stinker starring Rock Hudson and a young Barbara Carrera (who? Look her up...). The movie is BORING (I thought so anyway), but the poster is kind of cool. And cheap.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/embryo-movie-poster-1976-1020232761_zpswknhu8tv.jpg)


My 10th and final poster for now is my goody goody gum drops poster de jour... "DINOSAURUS!" (Yes, the "!" IS part of the title! Ha!). From Jack H. Harris (the man who unleashed "THE BLOB" on the world) comes this crazy story of two dinosaurs and a caveman found intact but frozen. They are thawed out and silly sci fi fun ensues. How exciting to get this poster! "Alive with thrills that started a million years ago." Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dinosaurus_zpsrumjmmgs.jpg)

I have a bunch of pictures on photobucket of other posters I have. They were originally on the poster thread of that other site, but when the site revamped itself,it killed all of the old pages. Those postings may be lost, but I might slowly start adding them on here. They are nothing fancy, but they are mine.

Thanks for looking. See ya next time. CHEERS!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on April 03, 2015, 03:32:26 AM
I need to get to bed---UGH!  I have to be up in 5 hours! Yikes!---but I was so not impressed by my recent purchases that I had posted, so I decided to look into my photobucket listings from the old/deleted movie poster discussion chain I had posted on that other site and post my favorite 10 purchases from last year.


In no particular order...


"REVOLT OF THE ZOMBIES" re-release. I love, love, LOVE this poster! Yes, it is only a re-release poster (completely different art than the original release) and yes, the movie is crap-a-rama boring. But it still speaks to me. Oooo wow! I am still thrilled all of these months later that I got it. :-)  I can't even explain why.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/RevoltoftheZombies_zps384b422d.jpg)


I'm a big "Tarzan" fan. I have all of the "Tarzan" posters up into the Gordon Scott era (the later titles), but anything earlier has always eluded me. Last year I scored a Lex Barker (talking Tarzan #2, after Weissmuller) title, "Tarzan's Peril". It may not be in the best shape, but it's colorful and a Lex Barker era--my first! I certainly never thought I get one that far back.  Zowie! (Everybody give a Tarzan yell: Ah-AH-ahhh!!!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TarzansPeril_zps964a7ae6.jpg)


"Astro Zombies"!!!  This is the re-release poster for Ted V. Mikels schlock-o-rama sci-fi flick. Both the original poster and re-release have cool artwork, but this is the one came my way. WOW! Love it!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/AstroZombies_zps936bb497.jpg)


I had never heard of "I've Lived Before" until I came across the poster at auction. What cool artwork. I needed it. I bid...and lost. Another came up--same story. On and on and on until...MINE!  Whoo hoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ive-lived-before-movie-poster-9999-1020482769_zps082d3b0c.jpg)



"BLACULA"!!!  Jinkies! I was so surprised to land this one. I have owned the sequel poster, "Scream Blacula Scream: for a while, but the original? Always out of reach... I am trying to gather all of the blaxploitation horror film posters of the 70s. I had "Scream Blacula Scream", "Abbey" (the "Black Exorcist"), and "Sugar Hill" (voodoo zombies!), but was missing a few key pieces. "Blacula" was one of them, and certainly the most well known. And, tuh-duh! Last year, it became MINE!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blacula_zpsf9afb1d4.jpg)



Not long after scoring "Blacula", I lucked out with another of the elusive blaxploitation horror posters---"Dr. Black / Mr. Hyde"!  Yippie yippie yaHOO!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/DrBlackandMrHyde_zps424e2705.jpg)



I've never seen "PRISON GIRLS", but I am a sucker for gimmicks advertised on posters. Vintage 3D poster? I'm there!  This one was unusual because nothing was seemingly being thrust out to the viewer. Instead there's this weird perspective that you are surrounded by the prison gals looking down at you. Very unusual and cool in my book.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/PrisonGirls_zps528bef72.jpg)



"BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE"--beautiful old horror poster. WOW! This is not a picture of the poster I won. I don't know why I didn't save a photo from the auction or take one when it arrived. Mine is a little rough, but not too shabby. I am delighted with it. I totally dig it. Can't wait to hang it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/blood-of-the-vampire-movie-poster-1958-1020143982_zps358f250f.jpg)


"NARCOTIC STORY"looks so wonderfully campy. I can't wait to hang it up.Of course, the big syringe on the movie poster reminds me that I am a movie poster addict. Is there a 10 step program for people like us?  Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MarcoticStory_zps7b73fe31.jpg)



And that brings me to No. 10....(which I'm debating about. Ha! Is it this one, this one or this one? Hmm...). I guess I'll go with "Lady Frankenstein"!   Only the monster she made could satisfy her strange desires... Ha! Gotta love the monster art and the laboratory. Crappy movie more or less, but fun and colorful poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/LadyFrankenstein_zps64066e74.jpg)


Okay--those are my 10 faves I got last year. I'll addmore to this as I either get more or dig through my photobucket archives. Thanks for looking. I know they're not as lovely and cool as some of yours, but I'm kind of digging them in a far out way. Yabba  dabba doo! 

CHEERS!

Great effort MAGG! Many desirable posters there for sure. I wish I had a Prison Girls in 3D, many years have gone by and still without one. Nice to read you commentary on each of them. Well done!

UGH...good morning. Why am I awake? Oh yeah, I gotta go to work... Waaagh.

Hi Steve and T. Thanks for stopping by. I'd offer you some coffee but I haven't got any made yet---and I'm already running late. Help yourselves to a Pop Tart,maybe? I've got to get in the shower, but I appreciate your input.

Scrub-a-dub-dub and cheers to you.

Have a go-go groovy day.

Hello Rosa and Neo. Thanks for stopping by. Sorry I missed you. I just got home from work. Ugh! I'll be in bed in an hour or so, so I can get up tomorrow at 5 a.m. and do it all again. Joy...

I am glad you like the commentary about the posters. I've always done that. Doesn't everyone else? Hmm. Now that I think about it they usually seem to comment on their posters after someone else remarks on them.

Anyway, thanks for visiting.

Cheers!!

Hi there? What's new with you? What's new with me? POSTERS!!! With the clock ticking down to my 50th (!!!???!!!) birthday and my promise to STOP buying posters (with the exception of a bucket-list of "must haves") once I hit the big 5-0, I've been on a shopping frenzy. Here are some of my newest acquisitions:

Oh my stars! Was I ever thrilled to snap this little gem up. It's the nazisploitation flick "SS GIRLS"! While not the best example of the nazisploitation films of the late 60s and 70s (not by a long shot), what a cool grindhouse-groovy poster! At one time I had the poster for "SS LOVE CAMP". I hated the art so I sold it for peanuts...not realizing what I had and when i come across one now, they're big bucks! This little beauty just seemed to fall into my lap,is in super snazzy condition and was so incredibly reasonably priced, i couldn't say no. Yippie!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SS%20Girls_zpseetxipok.jpg)


Next up,more grindhouse sleaze with "The Reluctant Sadist". I've not seen this (well reviewed?!?! Huh!?!) little film, but I've seen it advertised from Something Weird Video, so it might be right up my alley. I'll check it out sometime. In the mean time,it was cheap and there--so...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/reluctant%20sadist_zpswfyop2td.jpg)


"Scream, Baby, Scream" is a eurohorror from the late 60s or early 70s. I just caught it a few weeks ago on DVD and it's not a bad little chiller (although it's dated and the scares are just not there...). I dig the far out psychedelic poster design.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KGrHqRHJEUFBgLECLkJBQhC0jg60_57_zpsnykkv9mj.jpg)



Some of my lesser purchases include "Full Moon High"

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/full%20moon%20high%20style%20b_zpsd4uroa4p.jpg)

and the notoriously awful "At Long Last Love" (Burt Reynolds singing and dancing? Ouch--just the thought of it is painful)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/at_long_last_love_zpsincytkkb.jpg)

I don't know what I was thinking buying those at all...but they were only about $2 each...


The double bill combo poster for "The Possession of Virginia" and "The Exorcism of Hugh" I already had---but I am a sucker for "Exorcist" wannabes. I've actually seen "The Exorcism of Hugh" (aka "Neither the Sea Nor the Sand" or something like that). It has nothing to do with exorcism or possession and it's painfully slow. I'm guessing the ultra obscure "Possession of Virginia" is equally awful. Oh well,the double feature makes them sound possess-o-cool!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Possession%20of%20Virginia%20Exorcismof%20Hugh_zpskk1ojvp5.jpg)


Not that it has anything to do with possession, I also picked up this Turkish poster for "The Devil's Nightmare". The movie is a guilty pleasure fave of mine. A group of stranded tourists are picked off one by one by an evil succubus. I won't say who the succubus is (they do try for a bit of mystery about it initially), but it becomes fairly obvious early on and the outfit she wears when she is still presumed to be a wholesome young woman is laugh out loud funny (in the Fredrick's of Hollywood sleaze-o-rama kind of way).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/devils-nightmare-Turkish%20420x590_zps94z9xnll.jpg)

I have a penchant for the old kiddie matinee posters from the 60s and early 70s. K. Gordon Murray and Barry Mahon were two of the big players in the kiddie matinee arena. I always preferred the posters for the ones distributed by Childhood Productions though. They were more vibrant and always declared they were filmed in Storybook Color. They were basically imported movies that were dubbed and thrown out there for kids to suffer through while their parents went out shopping or whatever. I remember seeing a few of these films at kiddie matinees. "The Tinder Box" was not one of them though. I have several Childhood Productions posters, and now I have one more. Hooray!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tinder%20Box_zpszbx7zreb.jpg)

As I said earlier, my birthday is coming up. I purchased myself two extra special presents. One of them is the elusive (and expensive) Herschel Gordon Lewis "BLOOD FEAST", which is widely considered the very first gore movie--long before films like "Dawn of the Dead" or "Friday the 13th" were on the scene. This was a holy grail for me--and I finally got one. Yahoo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/bloodfeast-3346_zpsy44hnppv.jpeg)

The other present to myself was also a holy grail of sorts...the original "BEACH PARTY" poster, the first Frankie & Annette flick that started it all. And now my collection is complete!  "Beach Party" is the best film of the lot anyway! It's what happens when 10,000 kids meet on 5,000 beach blankets! Kowabunga!  It's finally mine! Happy birthday to me!

Hi T. Thanks for the kind words (and officially know that I am uber jealous of your original "PSYCHO" poster! WOW!!!).

I need to get to bed, but I thought I'd throw up (NOT as in vomit, but as in share) some more poster photos (just 10) from my photobucket account from when I was posting on that other site (before it deleted everything). I'll do this now and then until I "catch up". Of course, then I'll eventually have to go through all of my stuff in boxes etc from before I started posting on that defunct page---and there are thousands of posters to go through... Someday...

Blah blah blah.

Anyway, this first pic is of me, Monster A GoGo, holding my framed original "Monster A GoGo"! This was right after I got it. I was thrilled. My name came from the movie, but not because I liked the movie (it's god-awful). It's a long story and we don't need to go there. But I love having the poster. Yahoo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/GOGO.jpg)


"Visiting Hours"...crappy horror flick, clever-ish poster. Nothing to write home about, it was just at the end of my photobucket account. I did see this in the theaters though back in 1983 or so. I think it was a double feature with "Friday the 13th Part 3" (in 3D)! (I have one of those posters too--framed--in my creaky old video).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/visiting_hours.jpg)


"Fly Me To The Moon". Yep. Have that. Whoopie... As I said before,I'm a sucker for gimmicks. 3D's comeback was still fairly new then... that's my only defense. Ha! (I guess I could just NOT post this and no one would know how lame of a poster I have. Hee hee!):

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/fly_me_to_the_moon_zpsfd6d0235.jpg)

Speaking of 3D,here's a vintage 3D poster, "Wings of the Hawk". The old 3D posters were awesome. They really tried to sell the whole coming off the screen gimmick. The new 3D is very clean but doesn't fly out at you the way the old 3D did. Oh well...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/wings.jpg)


And yet another vintage 3D poster, "Fort Ti"! Zowie! Look out!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FortTi.jpg)


Zowie! It's Hercules (Steve Reeves) vs Tarzan (Gordon Scott) in "Duel of the Titans"!  Okay, so they were not playing Herc and Tarzan in this--but it was still a great team up for a 60s peplum flick. I dig those old cheesy sword and sandal epics. ("Hey Johnny,you ever see any movies with gladiators in them?) This was a pretty great find:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/duel.jpg)



The very first movie poster I ever bought was for "Logan's Run". I loved this film as a kid. I think I mentioned that when I saw it in one of my town's fading movie palaces (now gone dark), the projectionist invited me up to the projection booth and I watched a good portion of it up there. That was a magical experience. Anyway, that first poster got ruined (my fault), so I got a replacement copy that I had framed and on my walls before going back to school and moving in here. This is a back up copy:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/LogansRun.jpg)


"The Omen"--this was a great flick and one of the first R-rated movies I got into when I was still too young to go without an adult. (I saw this on a rerelease with "Damien Omen 2"--before the third one, so it must have been in 1980. I would have been 15 then). What an awesome flick--the remake was a waste of time.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TheOmen.jpg)



"20th Century Oz"? Never seen it (although I did buy a bootleg DVD--just haven't got around to it yet), but I dig all things "OZ" so figured I'd get this as well. It was inexpensive...why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20thcenturyOZ.jpg)


Finally, everyone knows Universal released the pilot to the original "Battlestar Galactica" in theaters after the premiere to recoup some of the show's expenses (even presenting it in SENSURROUND, which I believe was the final time that gimmick was used... waaagh!). This one sheet is Australian (??) for the 2nd feature (NOT released here in the states) culled from the first few episodes of the series and released theatrically. Golly, Universal sure had balls trying to get people to pay for what they'd already seen for free on TV. Ha!  Anyway, I'm no sci fi nut, but I thought this was a bit on the rare side and future sci fi fans might be willing to part with some cash for it. Nothing too grand, but more than the few bucks I paid for it hopefully. It's kind of fun on its own anyway.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MissionGalactica.jpg)


And now I really must get to bed. More later. Thanks for stopping by.

CHEERS!

Great read MAGG. Your posters are truly shocking (in a good way of course). I especially like the old 3D posters, Logans run and scantily clad gals oh and the on poster OTT text to grab you in.

Hi Rosa & Steve,

Rosa, I've always wanted to see "At Long Last Love", just to see how awful it is (which may be why I bought the poster). I just don't know if I'd be able to sit through it though. Pierce Brosnan's solo in "Mamma Mia" torturous enough--GEEZ what was he thinking? I can only imagine 2 hours of Burt Reynolds attempting to be musical might very well push one over the edge. EEEK!

Steve, thanks for the kind words but I don't know poster lingo yet. What does OTT mean? (Maybe it's just too early in the morning, but I look and look at all of the photos and can not figure out which might be OTT. Hmm... 
the on poster OTT text to grab you in.

Cha-cha-cha! Have a groovy day.

What does OTT mean?

Over The Top (maybe there is a better term for the poster tag lines, or maybe it is tag lines, hehe)
like in your posters:
The bosomy undressed ladies are an eyeful at an erotic orgy
More grisly than ever in Blood Color

Okay--quickly, here are 10 more random blasts from my collection past from the last 3 years or so (since I started posting my then-latest acquisitions on photobucket for the long lost poster collector thread on Fanbolt). This time I am avoiding some of the junk...and only posting things I still am thrilled with.

In no particular order...

First up is "Cinderella"...a non-Disney,live action import kiddie matinee from Childhood Productions in Storybook Color and "never before shown anywhere" (except whatever country it was imported from). I've previously mentioned my interest in the whole kiddie matinee thang from the  60s and early 70s. I've never seen this flick, but guessing it is just awful and kids forced to go see this dreck were probably bored to tears. Ha! Whatever the movie is like, I love the colorful poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/CinderellanonDisney_zpsed3cb847.jpg)


From the 1950s it's "CIRCUS GIRL". I've never seen this flick either---never even heard of it until I came across the poster,actually. I'm sure it's worth nothing,but the artwork is pretty nifty.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/circus-girl-movie-poster-1937-1020459683_zps230fc832.jpg)


It's grindhouse/exploitation time again with the one sheet for the sleazy "HOUSE OF WHIPCORD"! Wow! The poster is sadistically stunning. The movie isn't great--and, as I recall,pretty grueling (spoiler: the young woman you think is the star gets killed half way into the flick! Shocker!). Brilliant exploitative art though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Houseofwhipcord_zps44128bea.jpg)


I'll never have a "KING KONG" from its original release. I've accepted that. My goal is one from the 1950s re-release. (Someday...) In the mean time, I have this 1960s (?) international re-release poster. It's not exactly what I want, but for now--it's "KONG"! I'll take it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KingKong50sinternational_zpsbacff31c.jpg)


I've never seen "Psycho Circus". It's probably crap...but what a cool poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/psycho_circus_poster_01_zps78eadddd.jpg)


In my pursuit of post-"Night of the Living Dead" zombie titles, this one seemed to always be just beyond my grasp for one reason or another for the longest time. Not a great movie by any means and not a brilliant poster either (and this certainly is not the best possible photo of it either)... but I dig it and am thrilled it's mine finally. Filmed in DEAD COLOR!!!  Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/gardendead.jpg)


I am not sure this photo is of my "Ilsa She Wolf of the SS" poster or not. It seems a little too mint-y and I could have sworn I got my copy back before I started keeping record on photobucket. Hmm. Whatever...I have it in photobucket, so I'll post it here as I do have one. The first "Ilsa" flick (there were 4 altogether) could very well be the best nazisploitation flick of the bunch. Dyanne Thorne was awesome in the role. I had the pleasure of meeting her last year and she was so tiny, which is amazing because Ilsa seems so statuesque and such a powerful presence!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ilsa.jpg)


I love kitschy, bad movies...especially those no one remembers or knows about. Hot on the heels of his remake of "KING KONG" in the 70s, Dino DeLaurentis unleashed "WHITE BUFFALO", about a giant white buffalo in the old west. Hey, if it worked for giant apes, why not giant buffalo as well? WRONG! This movie came and went so fast and is rather obscure today. I didn't get to see it myself until the VHS era. What a turd. Fun-ish poster though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/wbuffalo.jpg)


Rounding out the last two for this post, I turn to two obscure shockers from the 70s. The first stars Klaus Kinski in yet another retelling of "JACK THE RIPPER" by cult euro-sleaze director Jess Franco.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jacktheripperkinski_zpsf331d01f.jpg)


The last is for something called "Savage Intruder" that I'd love to see. It has a great list of old Hollywood people in it, such as Miriam Hopkins, Gale Sondergaard (who was the first choice to play the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz" before being deemed "too glamorous"), and one-time Stooge Joe Besser! But I like the wild checkerboard tunnel effect and the creepy guy reaching out and surrounding the victims a lot. Another "nothing" poster, but it is kind of cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/savage-intruder-movie-poster-1968-1020193150_zps99c5b351.jpg)


That's it until next time.  CHEERS!

I've watched The White Buffalo. I liked it. I like the poster too with the image of the Buffalo charging and looking like coming out of the poster.

Congrats.

Hi Rosa! Wouldn't it have been cool if "The White Buffalo" HAD been in 3D? Ha! I'll bet it's the only monster buffalo movie ever made! I still laugh about it. What was Dino DeLaurentis thinking? (Or Charles Bronsan for that matter...) But you gotta love the movie any way and I do like the poster. Thanks for stopping by.

CHEERS!

Here are 10 more blasts from the past, posters I acquired in the last 3 or 4 years--in no particular order:


Okay, it's no secret P.T. Barnum would have loved me--I'm a sucker for a gimmick. I also really dig the whole disaster movie genre of the 70s. That being said, how could I resist this one sheet for "VOLCANO" in "FEELARAMA!"???  WHAT?,you say. You've never heard of it, you say. Ha! Flop-a-rama is more like it. Apparently, at the height of the disaster era, when "Earthquake", "Towering Inferno" and the "Airport" movies were making big bucks, someone decided to dust off the moldy-oldie stinker "Krakatoa-East of Java" (from a decade earlier), slap a new title on it and release it with a gimmick to give it extra box office oomph! Although i don't really know for sure, I suspect FEELARAMA was a copycat rip-off of the SENSURROUND system (Big speakers turned up to 11 to make the seats vibrate and rumble) that was used for "Earthquake" and won an Academy Award. FEELARAMA was never heard from again and "Volcano" is best known today under its original title. But the poster still exists! AWESOMENESS!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/feelarama_zpsca3cd139.jpg)


Another apparently volcano/Java-inspired flick I scored a poster for is "Fair Wind To Java". I bought this on a whim. It's not worth anything, but the copy I got was in such great condition and has such vibrant colors--wow! It's just works for me even more so than when I was looking at it to buy online. O' I can not wait to be back in a house again and hang this beauty up in a frame. I really find it stunning.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FairWind.jpg)


I mentioned elsewhere about my collection of blaxploitation horror movies (i.e. "Blacula:, "Dr. Black Mr. Hyde", etc.). While "Sugar Hill" isn't a horror movie per se, it does have horror elements---like ZOMBIES---in it. It also uses the Baron Samedi (sp?) voodoo character that was used in the James Bond flick "Live and Let Die".


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/sugarhill_zpsc307e49b.jpg)



The poster for "3 On A Meathook" is not any great artistic triumph, that's for sure. It's pretty BLAH actually. I got it because how many times have you ever seen this poster available? Not too often, if ever. The movie is no great winner either--strictly no budget grindhouse fare. It is, however, loosely based on the Ed Gein case---the same crazy that was the basis for "Psycho" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and the Buffalo Bill character in "Silence of the Lambs". I have it. End of story.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Meathook.jpg)


"Re-Animator" is a nifty little cult horror movie. I got the one sheet, but really wish I had the alternate one sheet with the comic book-style art.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/reanimator.jpg)


I also mentioned elsewhere being a fan of the peplum/sword & sandal flicks of the 50s and 60s. While "Thief of Baghdad" is only on the fringe of that category (no sons of Greek gods, no gladiators, etc.), it does star Hercules, aka Steve Reeves:


 (http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Thief.jpg)



"The Ghastly Love of Johnny x" is a 2012 low budget ($2 million) sci-fi musical set in the 1950s. It has the distinction of being the last feature ever shot on a certain kind of black and white film stock. It is also notorious for earning a heaping $114 at the box office (that's 114 dollars--not 114 million or even 114 thousand...just plain old dollars)! The filmmaker clearly was trying to create a cult movie--but instead created a mess. I had the, uh...pleasure(?) of seeing this locally wheere it played for one time only during a film festival. The director and male lead were there. They were giving away the posters. I snatched several. I also had the director and star autograph one and I snapped photos, bought the advanced DVD (also autographed), etc... That was all BEFORE the screening. Afterwards, well... Let's just say I know why it didn't earn $115 or more. Stink-a-rama! The poster, shown below, was made to look distressed and well-worn. It's rolled and not folded. Unlike a lot of other bad movies out there that have cool posters---this poster doesn't even have that going for it. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ghastlyloveofjohnnyxonesheet_zpsca554c76.jpg)


"PELVIS"---what is not to love about this cool yet cheesy poster. I've never seen the flick--and it probably is trash. However, unlike, say "The Ghastly Love of Johnny X", at least the poster is eye-catching and fun. Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/PelvisposterB_zpse9f2a183.jpg)


Yet another gimmick advertised on a poster had me buying something called "Teenage Millionaire". Zowie! Every teenager who saw the movie got a free record of Jimmy Clanton (who?) singing the title song. Ha! I'm sure it was as utterly forgettable as this movie seems to have been. I've often though about looking it up on Youtube to see if I can find the song--but why bother? The film also stars Zasu Pitts!  Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/teenagemillionaireposter_zpsc37eea9d.jpg)



Finally, Westworld was for children. Futureworld was for teenagers. But "Sex World" is definitely for adults! Zowie! It's X-Rated time for this trashy and rather disappointing poster (where are all of the robots running amuck?). I couldn't resist though. As an unofficial sequel (aka rip-off), I just had to get it to go with my "Westworld" and "Futureworld" posters, right? Are there robots in this thing?? I have never seen it because I fear that what I IMAGINE it would be like (sex robots killing their guests) and what it probably really is like (sex robots with NO violence) would be too opposite and would be an utter let down.



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SexWorld_zps57ac35ae.jpg)


Okay--that's enough for now. I have a lot more I'll post later.

Off to bed-y bye.  Good night and CHEERS!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on April 11, 2015, 12:43:39 AM
Howdy... I just wanted to slap on a few more purchases from the last 3 or 4 years I saved on my photobucket account. Whoopie... 

It's gimmick time once again... I do not recall buying this poster at all, but must have or else why is it in my photobucket account? It's just my type of poster---a cool horror double feature complemented by a super cool theater gimmick, the Witch Deflector! Zowie!  I want one.  Only the Witch Deflector can save you from the eerie web of the unknown! Jeepers! Why don't they have more gimmicks like that today?  On another note, I find it funny that Mr. Goody Two Shoes, Pat Boone is the star of the 2nd billed horror movie! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Witchdetector2_zps2a5c723f.jpg)


Speaking of my fondness for movie gimmicks, you know I have to be a fan of Mr. Gimmick himself, William Castle. I have MOST of the posters for his horror films (the impossible dream being "House on Haunted Hill"...sigh...). I finally scored "I Saw What You Did" sometime over the last few years. As far as I can tell, this title was fairly gimmick free...other than screaming that the film dealt with the freaky and ominous sounding "uxoricide" (which is the act of a man killing his wife). SHOCKING!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/i-saw-what-you-did-movie-poster-1965-1020214216_zpsb2d5555e.jpg)


Then, for those who think young and naughty, comes this mid-60s early nudie cutie "SINderella and the Golden Bra"! HA!!! Too funny. I couldn't resist. The movie is out on DVD from Something Weird Video--and I have it, just have not gotten around to watching it yet. I just have a feeling it will never be as good as the groovy poster promises.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/sinderella-and-the-golden-bra-movie-poster-1964-1020485422_zpsf8ece0f2.jpg)


Okay, NOT a real "Beach Party" movie, but looks like a fun knock off anyway, I picked this up because I had never heard of it, the ad copy was fun and it stars Joy Harmon (the giant blonde with super-sized cleavage clutching that normal-sized country bumpkin character on the "Village of the Giants" one sheet). Zowie! Whatever happened to her?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/onewaywahine_zpsc9f9c1e6.jpg)


During the last few years, I also branched out and scored two posters for old serials. Here is "Blazing the Overland Trail" chapter 6:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/blazing-the-overland-trail-movie-poster-1955-1020202821_zps24218b35.jpg)


and "The Great Adventures of Captain Kidd" chapter 3.  It's kind of funny that it never occurred to me there would be posters for the serials. D'oh!  Glad to learn there are...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/GreataDVENTURESofcaptainkidd_zpscdf21c23.jpg)


I also started branching out and getting a few foreign posters--though not anything as nice as the beautiful pieces I've seen on here. Aside from the few Mexican posters I shared on my introduction page at the request of "Deke Thornton", I got this old peplum poster for one of the flicks that starred Ed Fury!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/maciste-contro-lo-sceicco-img-124147_zpsfef8999e.jpg)



"Guess What Happened To Count Dracula" is a movie you've probably never heard of, despite the awesome poster. Oh man, the movie is B-O-R-I-N-G!!!  Aside from the poster, the only redeeming thing about it was a look into the famous Magic Castle magicians' club in Hollywood circa the mid-70s. But sometimes the best posters happen to the worst movies--this is one of those times:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/guess_what_happened_to_count_dracula_poster_01_zps403916d5.jpg)


Rounding out this post are two vintage horror posters. The first is the low budget drive in flick "Hands of a Strangler":


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/hands-of-a-stranger-movie-poster-1962-1020361077_zps0bc52617.jpg)


followed by the psychedelically weird poster for a truly awful (and boring) flick called "Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon"! Again, the best thing about it is the poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/dr_tarrs_torture_dungeon_poster_01_zpsacfe486a.jpg)


That's it for now. Until next time,kiddies... CHEERS!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on April 11, 2015, 02:12:46 AM
Just as I was getting ready for bed, I clicked the photobucket site to close it down, but somehow advanced to the next page and there were another 10 or so posters I thought were worthy of sharing (more or less). Quickly, here they are:


H. G. Lewis, the Godfather of Gore, strikes again with "The Gore Gore Girls"!!!  Although this is a rather lack-luster poster for one of Lewis' more sensational horror/gore flicks, I am THRILLED to have it. I've got about 4 more of his horror titles left to collect, but he has a lot of other zany exploitation flicks out there with poster as well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/gore_gore_girls_zpsa423e65e.jpg)


Here is yet another example of the poster being far better than the movie itself..."THE FOREST"! It's a horror, alright...a horror to have to sit through. SNORE!  Such a turd, but an amazingly effective poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-forest-movie-poster-1983-1020209867_zps8e66f959.jpg)



Yet another example of my blaxploitation horror collection, "SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM"!  In an interesting side note, after Blacula (William Marshall) hung up his fangs, he was the (2nd) King of Cartoons on "Pee Wee's Playhouse" in the 80s. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/screamblaculascream_zps3e0ad201.jpg)


Here are two more sword & sandal era epics, "Hercules Against the Moon Men" is a great poster and one of the more wonky movies of the period. I liked these films, but I especially loved the ones that involved witches,magic, etc. They were far more inventive and imaginative. I know I bought the poster, but do not know why this photo is in my photobucket instead of the poster and this is clearly a pristine example and mine is obviously folded and theater used. Hmm...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/hercules_against_the_moon_men_zpsc082d208.jpg)


The other is "Sandokan the Great"--not a gladiator flick, but another one on the fringe. This one stars Steve "Hercules" Reeves and was made at the tail end of the era before Italy went gung-ho for the Spaghetti Westerns.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SandokantheGreat_zps40e54397.jpg)


Here is another of the great William Castle's one sheets. This is for the Joan Crawford vehicle "STRAIT JACKET"!!!  Again, this one did not apparently have a gimmick (no "coward's corner" as in "Homicidal", no Emergo as in "House on Haunted Hill", no death by fright burial insurance as with "Macabre", etc.). I have heard vague rumors that audience goers were given free little cardboard axes. Ha! That could have been fun.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/StraitJacket_zps45b395b7.jpg)


Another gimmick appears on the one sheet for "The Magic Face". Columbia Pictures will pay you $10,000 if you can prove the story (something about Hitler being alive!?!) is not true! Zowie! I think the offer is as yet unclaimed. Maybe we should look into this...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-magic-face-movie-poster-1951-1020235456_zps9d16fc0c.jpg)


Two more gimmicks---3D flicks from the 80s--are evident in the one sheet for the Dino DeLaurentis produced "Amityville 3D"


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/AMITYVILLE3DUS1SH_zps2a0cda75.jpg)


and the British quad for "Treasure of the Four Crowns" (and, I've seen the film several times...I only count three crowns in it. WHERE is the 4th???):


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/treasure-of-the-four-crowns-cinema-quad-movie-poster-1_zps810564a3.jpg)


The 10th and final poster for this posting is the one sheet for the 1948 thriller "DISASTER". I had never heard of this until I encountered the half sheet at a flea market (it has completely different art, with people standing around big piles of rubble,etc.). I love disaster films, but have yet been able to track this curiosity down. Great old-school art though!

Hi. Just another quick batch of 10 acquisitions from the the last 3 years or so.

Gotta get to bed--eeek!


"COUNT DRACULA AND HIS VAMPIRE BRIDE"---the last of the Christopher Lee Drac's and my first poster in the series. (It's also the cheapest and most easily available... Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/count_dracula_and_his_vampire_bride_xlg_zpsdc7e3170.jpg)



The latest "Oz" re-release (G-version). Yes, like everyone else, I have one too. But did you see it? SO AWESOME in 3D and restored! WOW!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/OZImax_zps55a32d94.jpg)


While I have all of the James Bond one sheets (truth be told, most of the older ones are the 80s re-release versions) and the combo re-release posters. I am missing ONE combo poster. But this one, the Fantastic Bond Sale with "Thunderball" and "From Russia With Love" was the poster that brought it down from needing two to only needing one. Yahoo! LOVE this!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FantasticBondSale_zps9b68a257.jpg)


Grindhouse time again... A week or so ago I got the one sheet for the 80s cult hit "Silent Night Deadly Night". A long while back I also picked up the one sheet for the awful sequel (it played theatrically? Apparently the answer is YES)--"Silent Night Deadly Night 2". This has to be rare-ish. But who'd want it? I do.Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/silent_night_deadly_night_part_two_zps298ed8d5.jpg)


When I was a kid, I remember seeing this film advertised in the newspaper, only where I lived it was called "Cry of a Hooker" instead of "Cry of a Prostitute". The title always struck me as funny. NOT because the hooker is crying/hurt, but because I interpreted cry as in "call" like "call of the wild" or "cry of a wolf"...and I always wondered what the call of a hooker would be. "Hey mister! Got a dollar?" Probably something like that. Anway, for years I looked for this poster with the "Hooker" title--but have never seen it. I tried to get the "Prostitute" version (only version, I guess) but it always seemed to go higher than I wanted to pay. Then one day it was on for bidding again and no one else bid. It was mine for a dollar. Ha! My version is in nicer condition than shown here--not that it's much of a poster to begin with:

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/CryofaProstitute_zps52582305.jpg)


"Swingers"--never seen it and know nothing about it...but I love the young and skinny Vince Vaughn (!!!) offering me a cocktail. How cool if that was in 3D. It would be perfect for a bar area... Maybe someday... Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Swingers_zps21738be3.jpg)


I'd love to get the one sheet to Veronica Lake's comeback/swan song "Flesh Feast", but I don't want to pay $100 for it. Luckily I picked up this half sheet for hardly anything! Zowie! What a sale!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FleshFeast_zpsaad29268.jpg)


Gimmick movie!!!  "Chamber of Horrors" came with the FEAR FLASHER and HORROR HORN for the frightening bits on the screen (flasher to close your eyes--horn to open them again). I got the poster for the gimmick, but when I finally saw the film...well,why bother? Ho hum.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/chamberofhorrors_zps809ba115.jpg)



Another euro poster for an old peplum flick. Oh boy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/yugoslavian_goliath_against_the_giants_MF02016_L_zps06597b16.jpg)


The last poster tonight is also a gimmick poster..."The Starlets" was presented in 4D!!  HUH???  I don't have a clue how that worked (3D plus...what?), but I had to have the poster...even though it's for an X film. Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TheStarlets4-D_zps784f8802.jpg)


Okay--sleep calls.

Good night

Wednesday is my 50th (Oh CRAP!) birthday (also Income Tax Day---sorry about that). I am heading for New Orleans for a week to celebrate (a place I have never been to). Except for a "bucket list" of posters I have written down, I plan to stop buying posters (as I have so many...) once I officially hit the big Five-Oh. So, I've been shopping like a fiend, has bids or snipes set up on several auctions,etc... all for those last-minute purchases before the big day.

My flight leaves tomorrow, so I thought I'd post one last flashback of purchases from the last few years. I'll post whatever I "bought" over the next few days when I get back.

In no particular order...


I just recently got the one sheet for "Dinosaurus!. I got this re-release combo poster a while back for "Dinosaurus" and "The Blob". Sadly this is probably as close to getting an original "Blob" as I'll ever get. Darn it all...  but it's better than nothing (and I do like my combo posters):


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/BlobandDinosaurus_zpse2f773bf.jpg)


"Silent Running"---classic sci-fi and incredible poster art. I can't believe I actually was lucky enough to get this:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/silent-running-movie-poster-1972-1020209768_zps5d5129bf.jpg)


"Blazing Stewardesses"--Oh my stars! I've never seen this movie properly, but I do remember when I was a kid my family went to the drive in. I don't recall what we were seeing, but I DO recall looking out the back window of our little blue Pinto (seriously!) at the screen behind us. Screen 1 (which was ginormous...at one time billed as the World's Largest Screen) had a stewardess double feature playing. I forget the title of one movie, but "Blazing Stewardesses" was definitely one of the features. All I remember was whipped cream being licked off of some woman's chest! Zowie! Scandalous, but to my little pre-pubescent eyes, it was mind-blowing. Had to get the poster. If nothing else, it has a great cheesy title!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blazingstewardesses_zpse0639c1b.jpg)


"Rock Around the World"--I don't know anyone listed on the poster, but what cool art work. A 1950s guitar player rocking away in front of the planet. Very nifty!  I dig it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/RockAroundtheWorld_zpsc83b3573.jpg)


I totally love this old school poster for "The Black School". The lion attacking the fainting woman is just classic. Very cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blackzoo_zpsa0bc192b.jpg)


Here's a bit of obscure 80s horror---"The Mutilator"!  By sword, by pick, by axe...bye bye!  Ha! Gotta love that tag line. I actually saw this in the theater. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mutilator-1985-movie-poster_zpsa3cb1b7f.jpg)



The picture they said could never be shown... Not a great poster by any means, "Snuff" had an ingenius ad campaign when it came out. The fake protests for publicity that soon became a national outcry. Zowie! People who had never even seen the movie got caught up in the frenzy and picketed theaters showing it...only making the curious rush out to see it! I wanted to see that movie soooo bad. Years later when I finally did--it was crap, of course. But the memory of exploitation brilliantly played is forever instilled in the poster---a film that could only be made in South America--where life is cheap!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/snuff-movie-poster-1976-1020688065_zps82c1de03.jpg)


BLOOD-CURDLING! HAIR-RAISING! SPINE-CHILLING!  Eeeek!  It's "The Horrors of Spider Island". Wow! Cool poster--love it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/horrorsofspiderisland_zps728b221c.jpg)


Here is another blast from the B-Movie past, "ATOM AGE VAMPIRE"!!! I'm sure the movie is schlocky as heck, but you gotta like the fab-o-rama old school poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/AtomAgeVampire_zps4fc2917d.jpg)


The 10th and final poster-a-go-go for the night is another B-Movie beauty, "TORMENTED". Wow!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tormented-one-sheet-1960_zpsd961e456.jpg)


That's it for tonight. Fingers crossed I win a lot over the next few days (I just have NO IDEA how I'll pay for it all. Ha!)

CHEERS!

Happy big 5-0 for Wednesday MAGG. Have a great ol time in New Orleans

I looked up "Blazing Stewardesses" on IMDB and it got a rating of 1.9... Not bad, it could be worse! The whipped cream licking off chest piqued my interest

"Tormented" art sure looks great

Good luck with the bidding

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Argh! I'm trying to get ready to get outta here. EEEK!

I don't know for sure that the whipped cream scene was in "Blazing Stewardesses", but do know that was one of the two films playing at the drive in that night (and it obviously had the title that resonated with me). Just looking at the poster though,it's kind of strange seeing names like Yvonne DeCarlo and The Ritz Brothers (only 2 of them left apparently---and their first film in more than 30 years!!!) in a movie that screams out youthful sexual shenanigans (all of those stewardess movies of the 70s were T&A flicks for the most part, weren't they?).  Again, I never saw the movie completely---just bits and pieces out of the rear window of the car.

Gotta get outta here.  EEEK!  CHEERS!And thanks for visiting...

Belated Happy Birthday! Apologies for being an enabler, but I hope you break your promise to stop buying any more non-bucket list posters too :)

Thanks for sharing your collection, I really enjoyed reading this thread - good looking posters and interesting comments...more please!

Love your posters and your commentary.

Hi Tob and Brude. Thank you for your kind words. Tob, thank you also for the belated birthday wishes. It turned out to be the best,most amazing birthday ever. As for limiting myself to a bucket list, well...let's just say before I hit 50, I greatly expanded the perimeters of that list. Ha! As for those bids I put in before leaving, ZOWIE! I have a plethora of new posters to share. I got some jewels, some bucket list wants and some "eh" posters as well. I'll do 10 as usual and save the others for later. Here they are in no particular order:


Here we go-go....


This first photo may look familiar to those who peruse the "for sale/auction/trade" thread. Yes, in my pre-50th birthday buying frenzy,I bought Steven11788's original 2012 and 2013 re-release posters for "Halloween" for the rather princely sum he was asking for them. Ouch! But they're mine now. I will blame it on temporary middle aged insanity. (But the real truth is I'm nothing but a poster whore...who had his tax refund in the bank. Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Halloween%20re-releases_zps7wsnqrx9.jpg)



"Wild Wheels"--i know nothing about this poster. It was just cheap and got snatched up in my whirlwind buying frenzy....


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/wild%20wheels_zpstyvhyd81.jpg)



I already mentioned digging those old "Hercules"/sword and sandal/peplum flicks from the late 50s and early 60s. Here is the one sheet for Steve Reeves' "The Trojan Horse" (interesting,action-packed poster, but I found the flick kind of a cure for insomnia... Ha!).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/trojan%20horse_zpslgbupfed.jpg)


"Savage Season"???  Huh? Never heard of it, although it stars Ron Harper from the "Planet of the Apes" TV series and "Land of the Lost"'s 3rd season (Uncle Jack)--but, huh? What was I thinking? It was $1. I was out of my head. Need I say more?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Savage%20Season_zps86bdehfw.jpg)


Ding! Ding! Ding!!  Another bucket list poster....the original "JAWS"!  I have the re-release, but always wanted the original! Zowie!!! Not the most pristine version, but I'm happy to have it. Bite me!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/JAWS%20original_zpsghmzpy3r.jpg)


"Werewolf of Washington"?  Cheesy. Have you ever seen this flick? I have. It's laughably stupid. Why'd I buy the poster? Because it was there...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/werewolf%20of%20washington_zpsyf7dpqs4.jpg)


"TERRIFIED"---Crappy creaky low budget old movie, but what a cool poster of a guy being buried alive! Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/terrified_zpssug3ndw8.jpg)


An Italian 70s re-release poster for "Son of Kong"---not the best art by far, but probably the closest I'll ever get to having any paper on this title. Waaagh!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/son%20of%20kong%20italian_zpsum1vec4s.jpg)


"The Sexpert"... I have no idea what this flick is about (other than the obvious...it IS x-rated after all), but it ended up mine. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Sexpert_zpsmsboiadz.jpg)


Finally, another bucket list surprise...the "I Drink Your Blood" / "I Eat Your Skin" double feature combo poster! Yowza!  Yes, it's in a bit rough condition, but still cool and I can't wait to frame it/hang it. I've wanted this for years!  Groovy!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/i%20eat%20your_zpsotcvaahy.jpg)


And that's it for now!  Lots more to come.

CHEERS!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on April 28, 2015, 07:21:48 PM
ARGH!  I didn't like how the last post came out---too rushed. I was actually in a hurry when I did it as I had an appointment at the gym I was running late for. However, halfway to the gym my trainer guy called and cancelled the appointment--NOT because I was late, but because his car was in the shop. Oh well. I'm not complaining. Instead, I thought I'd post another poster post-a-go-go!  Yeeah!

On your mark, get set, go-go!!!!


Yes, I KNOW I just bought (and posted on here) the double feature poster for "The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus" and "The Manster"---but that was a black & white poster. When I discovered it also came in color, I HAD to have it!!!!  (Anyone want a black & white double feature poster? Ha!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hottot%20chamber%20dr%20faustus%20manster%20combo%20color_zpsxozy0irk.jpg)


I don't quite know what this is...  I love my "Exorcist" rip-offs. This film, "The Antichrist" was released in the late 70s as "The Tempter". Hmm. Is this a teaser before a title change or an alternate release or what? I don't know. Dull as the poster is, it was cheap-o-rama ($1, maybe?) and...what the hell? (Pun intended).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the%20antichrist_zpsr9mjcsow.jpg)



Oooo... an alternative poster for the re-release of "This Is Cinerama". The other version is better (the theater audience seemingly on a rollercoaster, looking at the tracks ahead---eek!), but this one was available at a good price.



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/this%20is%20cinerama_zpsbg4qfhip.jpg)


I know you are waiting for an interesting poster or two to pop up. Ha! I told you I was in a buying frenzy---I bought anything and everything. This is yet another anything and everything poster---but it is a combo/double feature poster...and I do like those. I've not seen either of these but I dig the four tiny witches (?) doing whatever over the reclining man's startled face in "Night of the Witches" and can only imagine the cheap and cheesy horrors of "Dr. Frankenstein on Campus"--bound to be utter crap or you would have heard of it long before now. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/night%20of%20the%20witchs%20dr%20frankenstein%20on%20campus_zpsvdy3lucj.jpg)


Looking to expand my horizons with foreign posters, I picked up the not-too-interesting but whatever Spanish poster for "Nosferatu in Venice" (aka "Vampiros en Venice"). Anyone ever see this? Is it any good?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Nosferatu%20in%20Venice_zps1amqdwm4.jpg)


I got an advance holofoil "Matrix" sequel poster---although I didn't follow the films at all (I was bored in the first one, didn't bother with any of the others...). Is this a good find or not? Eh...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Matrix%20revolution%20holofoil%20teaser_zpsbfanwoyc.jpg)


Awesomeness... I have long coveted the pre-release comic book-like "Creepshow" poster when it was going to be distributed by United Film Distribution, before Warner Bros. bought it. I have always thought this was the superior poster of the two (although I do like and have the Warner poster with the Creep guy in the ticket booth).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Creepshow%20comic%20book_zpsz4hevqsl.jpg)


"King of the Coral Sea"---huh? A forgotten 50s melodrama starring a young Rod ("The Birds"/"The Time Machine") Taylor. Colorful poster though...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20of%20the%20Coral%20Sea_zpsesewgkks.jpg)


Here's another kiddie matinee (remember, I have a fondness for those---which, at 50, is kind of creepy to admit. Ha!). This one is a K. Gordon Murray Mexican import--"Puss N Boots". I am reasonably sure I already had this one, but... better to be sure and just buy it. Right?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Puss%20N%20Boots_zpsgfnxz0cy.jpg)


Get out your big stomping shoes!  This post's finally poster is for one of the lamer movies in the "Godzilla" series, "Godzilla on Monster Island"--featuring Ghiddra and Gigan (and, if I'm not mistaken, this is the movie where --via the magic of subtitles--we actually see and hear Godzilla and Gigan have a conversation for the very first--and last--time! Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/godzilla_on_monster_island_zpskxbklcac.jpg)


There is a lot more trash and treasures coming your way--more to post! Stay tuned!

Cheers!

nice job MAGG. I dig the Wild Wheels and the Italian King Kong...

so you're officially no longer buying any new poster now, right?

Hey Crazy Vick! Thanks for stopping by.  I may post another batch of acquisitions in a bit (I'm not home now). As for not buying new posters...the self-imposed provisions of my bucket list leave room for me to buy posters for any new James Bond films or certain horror series films or any movies that really grab me and I really love. But for the most part, no. I'm just going to focus on those on my extensive bucket list of posters. No more mystery posters like WILD WHEELS or SAVAGE SEASON. Just stuff I know and have been looking to buy for a long time. :-) I hope I can stick to it.  Cheers!

Here's another 10 from my mad-middle aged (well, I can pretend it's only middle age. Right?) shopping spree. EEEK!

First, I'm reasonably sure I already have this...but why not another copy of the grindhouse-looking, faux stained (blood?) "CEMETERY MAN" one sheet?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cemetery%20Man_zpsvmyou3ff.jpg)


I'm absolutely clueless as to why I felt the need to buy the poster for "Clueless"--a movie I never even bothered to see. WHAT-ever....


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Clueless_zpswmwtvp78.jpg)


Knowing my penchant for kiddie matinee posters, you can guess that this was on the list. I got it cheap---but the masking tape in the upper corner ruined it. Waaaagh!  Still, it will due for now until another comes along...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Snow%20White%20and%20Red%20Rose%20Big%20Bad%20Wolf_zpsorx3c8ti.jpg)


No idea. Cheap. End of story.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/cries%20in%20the%20night_zpstl75qsie.jpg)


Years ago I wrote some silly story for a fiction writing class in college. Someone said it reminded them of "The Egg and I"--which I had never heard of. It turned out to be an old movie and the original appearance of Ma and Pa Kettle, who would go on to make several movies. I have the movie collection on DVD but still have not seen it. BUT I have started collecting the posters that go with it. Here is one I just got, "The Kettles in the Ozarks".


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Kettles%20in%20the%20Ozarks_zpst33xas2u.jpg)


Crappy movie, but cool poster---isn't that often the case? "The Amazing Transparent Man" is just such a flick---using well-worn stunts used in the "Invisible Man" series for a bargain basement horror thriller with zero shocks and nil entertainment value. Ha!  But the poster is fun and--gimmick alert--it warns that the Amazing Transparent Man will "appear" at every performance of the theater. Ha! Love those old gimmicks!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KGrHqJHJFMFDVgqZypDBQ8FKfDZw60_57_zpsau37nkvt.jpg)


The Italian poster for "Eye In The Labyrinth" is cool-ish. This is not my poster---the image borrowed from another site just to show you what I got---so please excuse the watermark logo.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/eye-in-the-labyrinth-italian-movie-poster-39x55-1972-mario-caiano-rosemary-dexter_zpssyionwhs.jpg)


An X-rated "Alice In Wonderland"??  Gasp! Shield your eyes and no peeking! This 70s flick played endlessly in R and X versions---and makes a great companion piece for my "Erotic Adventures of Pinocchio" poster I got a while back. (If you haven't seen it, be aware it is VERY dated, low budget, and it's a musical with very bad songs...)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Alice%20in%20Wonderland%20x_zpsgtvfqqxt.jpg)


"Book of Life" style C. Never bothered to see it. I got the poster though. Whoopie...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Book%20of%20life%20teaser%20b_zpsgfeua42i.jpg)


Mario Bava's "Planet of the Vampires"...zowie! I've never seen the movie but have long wanted this poster ever since seeing it on the VHS box cover at a video store back in the 80s. So COOL!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/planet%20of%20the%20vampires_zpsbqa9r3vd.jpg)


EEEK!  It's an Argentinean poster for a Mexican (??) movie:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/El%20Vampiro%20Sangriento%20poster_zpszn33zgtp.jpg)


Wow! Another vintage poster... I've not seen this either but am guessing the poster is better than the movie? Great monster art!  Yikes! "Battle Beyond the Sun"!!! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Battle%20Beyond%20the%20Sun_zpslbasd1cv.jpg)


Did I say I was only going to post 10 posters?  Yikes! It looks like you are getting an unlucky batch of 13.  This last one is a mammoth French poster for "Voodoo Black Exorcist". I got it from emovieposter.com so forgive the watermark. I've seen this movie twice at least and remember very little about it, just something about voodoo dancing in an island village and a voodoo zombie on a cruise ship. HUH? Yep--it's a turd. But the poster is fun (in a freaky sort of way...). Get your mojo going...or the VOODOO BLACK EXORCIST zombie may get you!  EEEK!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_voodoo_black_exorcist_BM03424_C_zpseawf7grw.jpg)


Okay... That's enough for now. Have a cha-cha-cha groovy evening.

Hi Steve! Thanks for visiting. It's always nice to see you here. Glad you liked some of the posters.

Brude---ha!  I have some "Mark of the Devil" barf bags (real ones and some of the fakes that have been made)...but "Horror of Party Beach" bikinis???  Huh??? Are you pulling my leg? Ha! I'd love to see a photo if they're real. I'm glad you like the "Cemetery Man" poster--but they're not that hard to find. (Are they?)


Here is the last ( ? ? ? ? ) batch of purchases from around the 50th birthday. Most are just "eh"...


First, I don't know what happen but I somehow lost the image for "The Reluctant Sadist"--something I posted earlier. Here it is again:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/reluctant%20sadist_zpsekxppa6d.jpg)



Here's a French re-release poster for Andy Warhol's "Trash". I got it from emovieposter, so I apologize for the watermark. This is actually a gift for a friend, but his birthday isn't until September. This isn't the ad art I'd prefer for the flick--but my friend is a big Dallesandro fan and probably doesn't have this poster so...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_andy_warhols_trash_R80s_BM03424_C_zpsdbscpkxz.jpg)



Then, it's the one sheet for the 8 Films To Die For After Dark Horrorfest 2007:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/after%20dark%20horrorfest%202007%20one%20sheet_zpsx0usfg6s.jpg)



Another recent emovieposter win (and, again, forgive the watermark) was "The Godchildren"--a faux sequel and I LOVE faux sequels. I wonder if anyone really believed this was a sequel? Ha! It was super cheap---it is a crappy poster. Anyone ever see the film? I'm uber curious now.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/godchildren_JC12566_C_zpslfdmx34q.jpg)




I never bothered with "Jupiter Ascending"--heard it was crap---but the visuals looked interesting and the poster is nice looking...and inexpensive. SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jupiter-Ascending-Main-One-Sheet_zpsjl6swvle.jpg)



The final poster in my "turning 50 frenzy" is the French poster for "Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me". Not the most exciting poster--but I love David Lynch and am a huge fan of "Twin Peaks". I am excited about the revival series that is supposed to come next year--but dismayed to hear that Lynch left the project before it got started. Hmm... We'll see what happens. Anyway, here's the poster:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Twin%20Peaks%20Fire%20Walk%20With%20Me%20french_zpsu8mqh5r8.jpg)



That is all for now---unless the weekend brings me more goodies and/or I decide to share some more acquisitions from the last three or four years again. Hmm.

Have a groovy evening. Thanks for coming to visit.

CHEERS!

Oh--like an actual costume from the movie. I thought it was some sort of premium given to theater goers---like the MARK OF THE DEVIL barf bags or the ZOTZ coins or fake beards for RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK, etc.  Zowie! How cool to have a movie-worn costume from that flick.

Okay... So I'm B-A-C-K with more purchases. As you know, I have been saving myself for marriage...er, uh, NO!!!  I mean I have been confining my purchases to the "bucket list" variety... But, man o' man, did I shoot the proverbial wad tonight (and I'm talking FINANCIAL wad, just in case someone out there had a dirty mind) and...eeek! I won't be buying anything else for a long while. OUCH!  What was I thinking? Ha! Guess it will take me even LONGER to get out of debt than I thought. Ha!

Anyway--here's a peek-a-rama at my recent posters-a-go-go!


Yes, even though this movie is not well known, I have been trying to get this poster for decades. I LOVED this movie as a kid. On Saturdays there used to be this horror double feature on one local channel. They didn't have a huge library and tended to show the same movies several times. I always made it a point to watch "Burn Witch Burn" when it was on. I don't even know what they appeal was today, having seen the film as a grown up. It's interesting but very subtle and slow. It's hard to imagine a 12 year old being glued to the TV set for it---but I was. Ha!

"Phantom of the Paradise" is one of those movies that the poster makes you want to see soooooo badly....and yet, in all of these years, I have NEVER seen it. I'm almost afraid to now---as the movie must be ultra dated (?). The poster--which I find fantastic--has always been beyond my grasp though. Maybe now that I have the poster I can finally get around to seeing the movie? Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Phantom%20of%20the%20Paradise%20style%20c_zps5jsrpkti.jpg)



"Halloween 4"?? A "bucket list" title? I will buy all of the posters for all of the "Halloween" movies--past or future (even those Rob Zombie turd...of which the poster for the first one really was good). While I am reasonably sure I have to poster for "Part 4" already---there is a sliver of doubt in my head. So, since it wasn't that expensive, I just bought it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Halloween%204_zpsviek2rqb.jpg)


When I bought "Halloween 4", the one sheet for "Halloween 5" came with it. So...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Halloween%205_zpsbctpdupc.jpg)



"The Creature From The Haunted Sea" is a crappy flick---with a cool poster. Need I say more?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Creature%20From%20The%20Haunted%20Sea_zpsryeh8exu.jpg)




"Man From Deep River" isn't really a cannibal flick per se, but it IS kind of the movie that launched the Italian cannibal genre. If it weren't for "Man From Deep River"s success, there may have been no "Cannibal Holocaust" or "Cannibal Ferox" etc. Whatever.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Man%20From%20Deep%20River%20color_zpsjpfjehnk.jpg)



"The Murder Gang"???  Huh?  It came with "Man From Deep River"---REALLY!  Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. The artwork is nice, but it would have been nicer in color...and who ever heard of this flick?



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Murder%20Gang_zpsvjgfpiiq.jpg)



"Ride The Wild Surf"---wow! One of the big kahuna of bucket list posters (well, maybe more of a lesser bucket list item...but "big kahuna" goes better with the surfing theme). i love all of those old Frankie & Annette beach party flicks. I've been trying to expand on other beach-y titles and this one was a natural. It's more serious in nature--not nearly as campy--but I wanted it anyway. Great graphics and stars people like Fabian, Tab Hunter, Barbara Eden,Shelly Fabares, and Susan Hart. Yet, it has always gone way, WAY high. I'm not sure why, but I have a copy now so I no longer need to worry about getting one.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ride%20the%20Wild%20Surf_zpsy6bjlkk4.jpg)



"The Wild World of Bat Woman"---WOW! I love the cheap, cheesiness of this poster. The drawings of the people at the bottom look like they were done by a 6th grader...Ha! I've been trying to get this poster for years---the movie is just trash. I love it!  Sooooo excited to have this finally.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Wild%20World%20of%20the%20Batwoman_zpsifcmhy8g.jpg)



I have been waiting forever to get "Terror in a Haunted House" as well!  Love the screaming woman and the floating skulls graphics!  I still need to track down the half sheet, because the one sheet makes no mention of the gimmick used with this flick (Psycho-Rama!), which the half sheet does. Still---wow!  LOVE this!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Terror%20In%20The%20Haunted%20House_zps6ee1uhlk.jpg)


And that's all for tonight, gang. I am tired and BEYOND BROKE!  Ha!  I let so many things get away--and fought to keep others...and my credit cards are not going to be happy campers! (But my future walls will be when I get these babies up! Yahoo!)

CHEERS!

Yes, the ones you like---"BURN WITCH BURN", "RIDE THE WILD SURF","WILD WORLD OF THE BAT WOMAN" and "TERROR IN THE HAUNTED HOUSE" are the picks of my current litter...I's also include "CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA" in that list. As for "BWB"--you probably wouldn't like it. As I said, I saw it recently as an adult. It's talky, slow and subtle. Kind of dull...but still kind of neat.

Thanks for the visit. CHEERS!

Not much happening poster shopping-wise for me lately. I've picked up a FEW goodies, but I'll save those for when I have more to share. Instead, I thought I'd do another flashback to purchases from the last 2 years or so (since they are all in boxes or tubes until i move back into a house). In no particular order:


"Francis in the Haunted House"---I've never seen any of the Francis the Talking Mule movies (yet). This was the 8th (?) and last one in the series. I've always been curious about this series ("Francis" came before "Mr. Ed") and this swell poster is about him going to a haunted house!  Yowza! How fun! With Mickey Rooney too! 

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FrancisinahauntedHouse_zps187fe6c8.jpg)



Here's another of those kiddie matinee posters. This one is for a non-Disney "Pinocchio" (All new! All live! Never before shown anywhere! Presented in glorious glowing Storybook Color.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/PinocchiononDisney_zps8c208064.jpg)



Here's a late (and lesser known) entry in the cannibal genre, "White Slave"!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/WhiteSlave_zpsbc1af6f0.jpg)



This movie is crappy---despite all of the stop motion animation, etc in it. But wow!  Such a fun and schlocky poster---"LASERBLAST".Don't bother with the movie--just hang the cheesy poster on your wall. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Laserblast_zps6f333139.jpg)



I know what you are thinking, that "Sharknado" is NOT a movie and played on TV. This can NOT be a "movie poster". WRONG! While it WAS a TV movie, it did play theaters mere days after it debuted--but there were NO posters for that showing. However, several months later, RiffTraxx (the former Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys) did a "live" show that was broadcast in theaters from coast to coast. This is the movie theater movie poster to advertise that event. (And yes--I DID go to see it! You gotta love the glorious stupidity of "Sharknado" movies! Hello!??!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/RiffTraxLive-Sharknado_EPK_zps5e987b83.jpg)



"The Strangler"--never seen it but a creepy cool old poster that makes it look disturbing and with Victor Buono (King Tut from "Batman" and also from "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane"), it's bound to be interesting.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-strangler-movie-poster-1964-1020197313_zps94edd29c.jpg)



"The Child"---simple black and white poster, but effectively creepy with the gnarled trees, long shadows, off hinge gate, hint of graves and, of course, the glowing-eyed girl.  Oooooooo

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TheChild_zps0189104b.jpg)



During the spy craze, everyone was getting into the act...including "The Flintstones" in the big screen movie "A Man Called Flintstone". If the poster looks familiar, it's because it's mimicking another popular spy movie poster, "Our Man Flint"! Zowie! 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/man-called-flintstone-movie-poster-1966-1020209855_zpse99dc9ca.jpg)



Alas, it's the poster for an apparently LOST bigfoot movie (that looks like it might have been awesomely BAD), "REVENGE OF BIGFOOT" starring Rory Calhoun! Ha! 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Revenge_of_Bigfoot_zps29c03442.jpg)



And here's our 10th and final flashback poster for the evening, William Castle's gimmick-laden poster for "HOMICIDAL" (the film with the "Fright Break" and the "Coward's Corner"!!  Ha!).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/homicidal_zps8509bd61.jpg)

Hey Brude,

Since I can't sleep...okay!  Here is more schlock from the last 1-3 years.

CHEERS---and thanks for visiting!

PS Just woke up and for some reason this is still in draft/preview mode. Ha! My bad... Let me correct that...

Okay, yes this first poster is for some adult movie from the 70s called "Heatwave". No, I've never seen it but I had to have it because... Well, back before email, I used to do this quirky thing. I used to write long letters to friends and then I would decorate the envelopes as if they were mini-movie posters for amazing epics that never existed. I'm no artists, so I made all of these xerox copies of of old movie ads from newspapers and would cut them up and create "new" ads with them. I came across an ad for "Heatwave" and used it (and other ads) in my envelope movie poster for a new sequel to "THE OMEN" called "THE OWOMEN". To make the title, I cut out the letters of "THE OMEN" and flipped an "M" upsides for the "W". I used the lady with the devil snake as the main art with the catch phrase "Wouldn't you know it would be a woman who brought about the end of the world". (Sorry ladies...). Blah!  Blah! Blah! Anyway, when I saw this poster for sale on emovieposter.com, I HAD to buy it just in memory of my old faux poster art.



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/heatwave_zps5453ca7f.jpg)




"The Mutilator" is a quasi-lost and mostly forgotten slasher flick from the 80s. It survives on video (vhs and bootleg DVD), but from what I read, the company trying to get it out on (legitimate) DVD was discovering that there were no film elements for the completed film any where---just bits and pieces. I actually saw this in the theater way back. It was a scary experience--not so much because of the movie, but because there was a clearly mentally disturbed person in the audience. He would get up, stand beneath the screen, look out at the audience and do this little bounce dance...then sit back down. He did that several times. This was years before that horrible shooting in Denver, of course...but he freaked me out--especially because I was there all alone and might have been (gasp!) under 17 in an R Rated movie. I was sure he was going to go psycho and "get me". Anyway, the poster is viciously  creepy and sleazy...very effective.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mutilator-1985-movie-poster_zpsa3cb1b7f.jpg)




Mario Bava's "Blood and Black Lace"...blood and gore were never so stylized and pretty (in a morbid sort of way) together. An early classic Euro gore flick by one of the brilliant masters...and I am thrilled to have the poster for it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/blood_and_black_lace_poster_01_zps148f7460.jpg)



I remember seeing the commercials and newspaper ads for "HORROR HOSPITAL" as a kid and wanting to see it desperately. During the VHS era i finally got my chance. SNORE! However the poster is still amazingly sleazy-awesome! Grindhouse patrons probably flocked to see this based on the poster alone. Had to have it...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Horror%20Hospital_zpsdnoqzd2v.jpg)




"Tentacles" is another example of the poster being better than the movie. I already had a copy, but apparently sometime in the last few years I bought another simply because it was out there for sale--cheap--and I couldn't let it just go for as cheaply as it was listed. This isn't the best photo of it--but the artwork is fantastic. Too bad nothing as exciting or as interesting as the poster happened in the movie!



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tentacles_zpse8529097.jpg)




Jayne Mansfield and Phyllis Diller were the main attractions for me buying the one sheet for "The Fat Spy". Have you ever seen it? AWFUL! It is extremely low budget. Jayne plays a daddy's little rich girl-type (well beyond playing a daddy's little girl and quite chunky in this--possibly just after having one of her kids? And only 4th billed with a cartoon image of herself on the poster? Jayne was clearly at the end of her career with this trash...). Phyllis Diller looks like she's just starting hers. It's a mish-mash...part wanna be beach movie (complete with singing and dancing teens), part treasure hunt, complete mess! Still, it's Jayne Mansfield!



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FatSpy_zpsa86a6bfc.jpg)




"The Pirates of Blood River" looks like a fun movie...but I'm guessing the poster is better than the flick? Who's ever heard of this any way? It does star Kerwin ("Seventh Voyage of Sinbad") Mathews, Glenn ("Homicidal") Corbett, and (3rd billed?) Christopher (Hammer "Dracula") Lee though. Fun poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-pirates-of-blood-river-movie-poster-1962-1020552684_zpsa019fcc3.jpg)



I dig my old Hercules/peplum/sword & sandal flicks from the 50s and 60s...but I'm not sure if this early 70s flick would qualify. Ha! Back before he was "Conan" or "The Terminator", Arnold Schwarzenagger (as "Arnold Strong") was Hercules in "Hercules in New York". It says it was filmed entirely in New York. I actually think i saw this ages ago on VHS. If so, what I remember was very low budget and very bad. Still, I love the shot of Herc driving the chariot through Times Square in the poster. is that in the movie? Probably not. And it stars Arnold Stang? Oh my!  Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/23580_zpsc29f4341.jpg)



Speaking of Hercules, I also picked up "The Three Stooges Meet Hercules"...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ThreeStoogesMeetHercules_zpsbad8d1fd.jpg)




Last one for now..."WAR OF THE ZOMBIES"!  Zowie! This looks like it might be fun. Clearly something I should try to track down?  The "Zombies" in the title caught my attention--but these don't look much like the Romero-esque zombies of today. I wonder why this never played on Saturday afternoon TV back when I was a kid. It looks like it would have been fun.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/warofthezombies_zpsae34b8bd.jpg)


Okay---there's 10 more. Nothing fancy (clearly).... But it is what it is.


CHEERS!

I can't sleep (what else is new?) and I need to get up at 5 a.m. for work... BLAH!  So, I thought I'd post some more blasts from the recent past from the last 1-3 years (images I bothered to save to photobucket). Here are 10 more posters in my collection:



The Don Knotts movies of the 60s were silly, mindless fun. I was thrilled to finally track down a copy of "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" a short while ago. Before that though, I scored "The Reluctant Astronaut". I don't remember much about the flick, other than Knotts plays a guy who runs a space ride at a local amusement park...and somehow gets mistaken for a real astronaut and sent to NASA! Hilarity ensues---I guess. The rest of the movie memory is murky...  Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-reluctant-astronaut-movie-poster-1967-1020191977_zpsce0d6a41.jpg)



I think I need to see this movie, "MOONCHILD"---but I have a feeling it will suck. But, zowie! The ad copy is groovy.  "Racing to his final exorcism! Pursued by bizarre demons from his shrouded past. A reincarnate...trapped in a recurring nightmare of occult evil." It sounds there is a lot going on in this flick---but since no one has ever heard of this, it can't be that fantastic. But I'm a sucker for anything "exorcism", so...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MPW-96778_zps3f10d282.jpg)



"Apartment Zero"---Love this cool little art house gem of a movie. I also dig the quasi-mysterious poster art.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/apartment-zero-movie-poster-1988-1020196776_zps979eefbe.jpg)



"Frozen Alive"---I've not seen this but it looks like an ultra low budget trash fest...but, cool-ish poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FrozenAlive_zpsf4f64da0.jpg)



"Fright Night"--the original. I don't know why this poster is so expensive usually. (Truth be told, it's not great in my book...)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FrightNight_zpsf99986d1.jpg)


Okay--this has to be the lamest poster ever...and it tells you nothing about the plot. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the one sheet for "The Twonky".  If you've seen it, you know why I got this. Ha! How many movies about attacking TV sets have you seen? This is unintentionally (???) funny and has to be seen to be believed (the movie--not the poster).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/26018_zps75c021b2.jpg)




"Alligator"--a giant monster on the loose flick that came out in the wake of "JAWS". Not the best poster in the world (the Euro version was way better), but I want to go ahead and post this so i remember (when I see it--Ha!) that I DO ALREADY have this. I'm always thinking I don't...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/alligator1_zpsd22ef7eb.jpg)



Anyone want some beefcake? "Latin Boys Go To Hell"... Is this even a movie poster? Apparently it is. I bought this as an investment, figuring the bear-chested guy will be appealing to down the way and the price (next to nothing) will go up the older and scarcer this gets. The thing I do like about it is the unconventional layout---the title is on the top and bottom, with the credits all on the side. Different. And--eek!  A hint of pubic hair. Ha! Whatever...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Latin%20Boys%20Go%20To%20Hell_zpskmxxjniv.jpg)




I like my combo posters. This one is kind of boring, but figure it's as close as I'll ever get to a "Mark of the Vampire", "Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde" and "Mask of Fu Manchu" as I'll ever get...plus it has Karloff, Lugosi and March on it. Nothing spectacular, but...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/3shockshow_zps3850c4e9.jpg)



Last one for the night, "Passion Plantation"--sexploitation sleaze ripping off "Mandingo" and "Roots".  Why isn't trash like this out on DVD?  Waaagh!  This was probably hysterically funny without meaning to be.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/passion-plantation-movie-poster-1978-1020708982_zps7c001f14.jpg)

Okay--there's 10 more. Off to bed now...hopefully I can sleep.

I'll try to see The Twonky movie if I can find it - sounds interesting. It might be the only movie I choose to see this year, maybe along with the latest Mad Max.

There is a thread here for double bill posters (http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php?topic=2045.15) maybe you'd like to add on to.

I saw "The Twonky" years ago. Hans Conreid is the star and owner of the Twonky...so maybe it really IS meant to be funny?  it is just odd either way, but is also very dated and low budget. It's nothing great---there's only one Twonky and it does not conquer the world or anything. Heck, there's maybe only one set (the house) with various neighbors stopping by. It's cheap and silly.

Thanks for directing me to the double feature poster page. Unfortunately it looks like most of the images are gone. Drat. I'll explore and add to it later. Thanks.  It's always a pleasure to see you, Steve.

CHEERS!

Good morning!

Wow! Thanks for all of you stopping by. I appreciate the visit. I am glad you made yourselves at home (I do hope the bathrooms were clean... Oh my!).

Crazy Vick---always a pleasure seeing you. Perhaps the term "investment" was not the best choice. I'd say "a quick buck"---but I fear I'll have to stash this thing several years before getting that quick buck. Got that poster for $5...hope down the line the shirtless, pube-sprouting guy poster will get me at least $20 or so. I can't believe how much posters go for these days (even trash no one wants). Glad you got a chuckle though.

Rosa, hi there! I'm so glad you like my collection. It's not classy. It's not beautiful. But it is what it is.

Monocle, by now you may have sat through "The Twonky"...  Are we still "God blessing" me for that...or cursing me? Ha!  When TV sets attack...!  Yikes!


erik1925   For a second I thought you had written another word... (oh my!) ...and then I noticed the first letter was actually a "T". Never mind...


And, just when you thought I was going to drudge up more purchases from the last few years ago again, here is a batch of NEW purchases!!!  (Ooooo pretty-pretty!)  Bucket list items, you may ask? At first glance, you would probably say "no way" (even at 2nd glance...or 3rd...or 347th...), but... let me explain as we go...


This first one is the jewel of the posters presented today. Ooooo how I've wanted this one for a long while. "Circus of Horrors"!  Yippie!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Circus%20of%20Horrors_zpsb9ckistl.jpg)



The poster for "The Black Cat" is decidedly...not that interesting. Why bother? Well, I was trying to track down horror posters from Lucio Fulci. I have "Zombie", "House by the Cemetery" and "Gates of Hell". Why not "Black Cat"?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Black%20Cat_zpsbqwkdrpz.jpg)



"Game of Survival" (better known as "Tenement")... I already have this. It's "new" but I got it only because it came with "The Black Cat" (yes--it was a two-fer deal).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Game%20of%20Survival_zpsjrjomyz4.jpg)



"Tarzan Contra Los Hombres Leopardo"... Huh? I love my Tarzan movies, but had never heard of this movie (with someone named Ralph Hudson playing Tarzan??). Oh my STARS! The world of unauthorized Tarzan rip-offs has suddenly opened up to me. Zowie! There are many, many bogus Tarzan flicks out there I've just learned...and posters to go with them! Bucket list item was Tarzan posters I don't have yet...  Wow!  There are many, many more now than I had originally thought.

"Rollercoaster Rabbit"?  YES!  Don't judge. Don't judge....

"Back to the Beach" ?? Hello? I have all of the classic Frankie & Annette Beach Party posters now. While I had a "Back to the Beach" poster already, it was folded and I was not happy with it (and I don't mind folded posters at all--usually). This purchase was a chance to finally get a rolled version. Kowabunga!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/back_to_the_beach_zps7oexcas3.jpg)



Ha!  Speaking of folded vs rolled, the poster I got of "Bloody Birthday" IS folded -- unlike this example photo I'm sharing which looks rolled (is that possible?). I like this version of the poster better than the other style (the crudely drawn hand in the birthday cake with the fingers acting as candles). (Bucket list: 80s slasher flicks/holiday horrors I don't have yet)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/bloody_birthday_zpscnma5vwm.jpg)



Oooo... I scored a later Boris Karloff (bucket list--old Karloff posters I don't have yet) poster, "The Haunted Strangler"!  Zowie!  "Their wild beauty marked them for death"---wild beauty? That conjures up interesting images, but it's probably just then-present era model types (who can't act?). Ho hum...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Haunted%20Strangler_zpsj0gcyq1d.jpg)


My last poster de jour is the preferred style (by me) for John Carpenter's "The Fog". I never really liked the movie that much (but it is sooooo much better than the remake. Geez that was crap!), so there was never a rush to get this poster---and then poster prices started climbing and climbing and CLIMBING!  Cross this off the list now...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/THE%20FOG_zpsqdkjfq6o.jpg)


Okay, have a cha-cha-cha groovy day. I've got to hit the shower and get myself to a doctor appointment. O' the joy of aging...  NOT!

CHEERS!

Hello!  Thanks for visiting again everyone.

Rosa, thank you for the well wishes for my doctor visit. If you care to know why I went, it's because I have been having hot flashes (seriously!) for the past few weeks. Since women have menopause, do men have womenopause? I've certainly seen many men pause when women walk by---but what does that have to do with feeling like you are roasting for no reason at all? ARGH! Whatever this hot business is---I want it STOPPED!  UGH!

Crazy Vick, glad you like CIRCUS OF HORRORS and GAME OF SURVIVAL. Thanks for the note.


Jeff/erik1925--thanks for the remark about "THE BLACK CAT". You'll also be happy to know I WAS wearing my glasses when I read it too. (SHOCKING, I know...) Ha!

Monocle--who DOESN'T like a little FEELARAMA now and then? Unfortunately that is the ONLY movie to ever have been released in that process (as far as I can tell). I'm sure you are also rushing out to see "Teenage Millionaire" (don't forget to pick up your free record while you are there) just so you can see Doberman in action. It's not playing anywhere around here. Good luck finding a theater showing it.

CHEERS!

Hi there Rosa! Thank you for the note. I'm glad you found my bit of silliness, well... silly. (I was kind of worried someone would find it offensive perhaps? I don't know why...).

Incidentally, I am "hot flashing" even as i write this. I'm hoping to cool down soon enough so I can put my shirt on and try to go to a movie in the next few minutes (No groans from the peanut gallery, but I am thinking about seeing the 3D version of the new "Poltergeist" movie. It probably sucks, as most remakes do, but I'm game... I didn't even know they were making a remake! Ha!). What's with these flashes?  EEK!  I expect to spontaneously combust at any moment... Whew! 

Stay cool.

CHEERS!

Hi there!  I was waiting until I got 10 new posters...but, at 9, I was just too excited to wait any longer to share.

It's a bumper crop of International posters...something I have very few of. The amazing thing is, almost all of them are English versions of International posters (many I've seen the same posters in other languages).  None are all that great, but I am ever so pleased to get them! Yippie!!


First off, wow! Wow! WOW!!!  I never thought I'd score one of these---but here is the French version (ooo la la!) of the original "Planet of the Apes"!  For years I resisted buying foreign posters over US one sheets. I'd seen this over the years many times--and loved it. I thought (and STILL think) it is the BEST version poster for the film. Of course now when posters are at an all time high price wise, I finally decide to go for it. Ha! Although I still lack (and want) the US one sheet (the only "APES" title I don't have), I am beyond thrilled with this one. C'est magnifique!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Planet%20oif%20the%20Apes%20frenchB_zpsnobuomfe.jpg)



Also not in English is the Spanish poster for a re-release of "The Wizard of Oz". I HAVE a few of the US "Oz" re-releases from the early 70s on, but way back in 1983, just after graduating high school, I went on a whirlwind, cheap-o-rama trip to Europe ALONE. It was not supposed to have been that way, but...  Anyway, one of my first stops was in Barcelona. I really had no idea what to do or see. I saw a few things and then, to pass the time, I went to the movies. "The Wizard of Oz" was playing...with this poster advertising it. The dialogue was in Spanish but the songs were in English (!)--and there was this amazing, freaky short film beforehand that was creepy yet cool about a woman in a hooded robe or something who would peek out with only one eye showing. Weird. I wish I knew what that was. Anyway--so glad to add this "OZ" poster to my collection.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Wizard%20of%20Oz%20spanishB_zpshatlqsev.jpg)



The final non-English international poster is for schlock and sleazemeister Jess Franco's "Oasis of the Zombies"---about Nazi zombies in the desert!  EEK! I've never seen a US one sheet for this--was it even released theatrically here?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Oasis%20of%20the%20zombies%20spanishB_zpsbkgizher.jpg)




My new hunt for unauthorized Tarzan films and their posters continues with these new additions---the first is "Tarzan- The Kawana Treasure" starring someone named Richard Yesteran as the swingin' ape man!  Not the most interesting poster---but it was in English and I'm on a quest! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tarzan%20The%20Kawana%20TreasureB_zpscnchy2rs.jpg)



The next fake Tarzan is "Tarzan and the Rainbow" (aka "Tarzan and the Brown Prince") starring Steve Hawkes as Lord Greystoke! Man, I wish these films were AVAILABLE to see. I dig me some Tarzan flicks! I've seen all of the surviving (or THOUGHT I had) "Tarzan" films. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Taezan%20and%20the%20RainbowB_zps9ua4wvpw.jpg)



The one US poster (I think) I got was for another Jess Franco sleaze fest, "Wanda the Wicked Warden" (aka "Greta the Mad Butcher"). WHY did I want this? Because it is ALSO known as today --the the magic of dubbing and title changes---as "Ilsa the Wicked Warden", one of the four flicks in the shock-o-rama Ilsa saga starring Dyanne Thorne! I have the posters for "Ilsa She Wolf of the SS", "The Tigress" (which is better known as "Ilsa-Tigress of Siberia") and (I think) "Ilsa-Harem Keeper for the Oil Sheiks"...but until now, never the "Wicked Warden" poster. So yippie!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/wanda_wicked_warden_poster_01_zps1gwxgth6.jpg)



This next one features some of the crappiest artwork ever, but I had to have it! I love my disaster flicks of the 70s. "Blazing Tower" started out life as a (bad) TV movie called "Terror on the 40th Floor"--a TV movie ripoff of "The Towering Inferno". International viewers were lucky enough to have to PAY to see that turd--Ha! I have been hunting high and low for a one sheet for this flick (in English), and finally scored one from Lebanon! Ha!



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blazing%20TowerB_zpshzexq2ms.jpg)



I got myself another of my peplum/ sword & sandal posters for "Spartacus and the Ten Gladiators"---a Euro-poster in English! Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Spartacus%20and%20the%2010%20gladiators_zpsq309xtzf.jpg)


And the final poster tonight is the British one sheet for the wonderfully silly/bad crime/adventure flick filled with man-eating piranha (and the dumbest animated tornado ever seen on screen. Ha!)..."Killer Fish" starring Lee Majors and Karen Black!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Killerfish%20britishB_zpsj3ikn8rv.jpg)



Okay--I need to get to bed. Cha-cha-cha!

Hi Steve!  Glad you liked my new additions (I'm thrilled to have them--but some of them really don't do it for me--but I had to have them any way). Have you ever seen "Blazing Tower"/"Terror on the 40th Floor"? Oooo it's AWFUL and STOOOPID. As I recall, there are a bunch of people in a high rise having a Christmas party on the top floor (instead of a grand opening party as in "Towering Inferno") when a fire breaks out. Instead of action-packed escape attempts, we get stars John Forsythe, etc. with smoke swirling around them, having flashbacks about  certain moments in their lives with family, co-workers, etc. Could they have been more sensitive? Should they have reacted differently? These are the things going through their heads. SNORE! Most of the actors involved had their careers go up in smoke after this disaster (and I use "disaster" in every sense of the word) flick.

Thanks for stopping by.

Agreed. Beautiful. Though i must thank you for Killerfish. Very "refreshing" seeing a "man" rather than a blonde or voluptuous brunette being devoured by the fish. Equality at last.

Hi Brude/Ted. Thank you for the congratulations. The APES poster is truly a gem (and the highlight of my decidedly lackluster latest haul. I "needed" all of those posters for one reason or another--but, for the most part, they're lacking pizzazz or something).

Rosa, you are welcome for the man in peril poster ("Killer Fish"). Ha! Perhaps that is also why you like the APES poster, because it features a man in chains (instead of a woman)?. Heck, even the horribly illustrated "Blazing Tower" feature mostly male victims (one of which is on fire! Yow!). The lone female does have the dubious distinction of having a plate of glass shatter against her though, moments before she hits the ground from her fall/jump. EEK!  But, hmm. That does have me wondering about just how many poster images there are out there with a male in danger as opposed to a female. Thank you for calling my attention to something that should have been so obvious (since--duh--scantily clad women in some harrowing situation are usually used in poster art).

CHEERS!

Today's sharing of recent acquisitions comes with an important lesson. Do not---repeat--- DO NOT ever bid outrageous amounts of money for items you expect to be outbid on anyway just because you have to work and can watch the auction process. Why? Because it will BACKFIRE on you and cost you dearly. OMG!!!  What the heck am I going to do? OUCH!  My credit cards took a big hit. I don't know if I can sustain this habit much longer. It's just gotten so pricey in the last 10 years or so. Jinkies!

Anyway, here's some recent stuff...


You know I have a thing for Blaxploitation horror titles of the 70s. We'll here's the one sheet for possibly the biggest Blaxploitation horror flick of all, "Blacula"! You are probably shaking your head and asking yourself, doesn't Monster A GoGo already have that? The answer would be YES. OOps! I saw one for sale at a cheap price that I could not let go by so cheaply and , knowing I'd be outbid, bid on it anyway and...D'oh!  It's mine now. ARGH!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blacula_zps2ivuoiyr.jpg)



From Blacula to Dracula, here is the one sheet for the 2nd to last Hammer Dracula flick starring Christopher Lee in the role, "Dracula A.D. 1972"...it's also my second poster in the series (I'm working my way backwards it seems...going from the least in demand/cheapest on back, apparently. I already have the last one, "Count Dracula and his Vampire Bride" and now this one.). Notice that it is co-billed with "Crescendo" in it's original release.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dracula%20A.D.%201972%20with%20Crescendo_zpsmcnhvqps.jpg)



"Return of Count Yorga"---I've never seen any of the "Yorga" movies. I just got this poster because it came with "Dracula A.D. 1972". Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Return%20of%20Count%20Yorga_zpsctw4ddr7.jpg)



I've wanted this next curiosity for years. I've never seen the flick, but aside from the circus aspect of the film/poster, "Ring of Fear" stars (but was NOT written by) pulp novelist Mickey ("I, The Jury") Spillane.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ring%20of%20Fear_zpsyftz9x8x.jpg)



While the hunt goes on for a decent "King Kong" re-release poster and/or "Mighty Joe Young", here is "Konga"!  Again you may be thinking, doesn't Monster A GoGo have "Konga"? The answer would be YES unfortunately. See "Blacula" above as to why. Groan...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Konga_zpswtcnmcpu.jpg)



Sometimes you just like things because they are so awful. I've never seen "Rhinestone" (and never will), but the idea of Sylvester Stallone singing country music with Dolly Parton is just so god awful AWFUL---it must be a howler, albeit a very painful one. I got the poster to remind myself that even box office giants (I never understood the appeal of Stallone myself) can get too big of egos and make stinkeroo flop-a-ramas that the very existence of make me smile at how ill-conceived they were.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/rhinestone_zpsmhdhbfur.jpg)



"VAMP"---simple, classic, clever. Kind of like a horror version of the poster for "Victor / Victoria"


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/vamp_xlg_zpsmbipycyy.jpg)




Euro horror queen Barbara Steele stars in "The Ghost"!  EEEEK! 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Ghost_zps5sb85dwr.jpg)



Another zombie flick---"One Dark Night". I actually saw this years ago in the theater. I remember it being a nifty little flick.i should track it down again. At the time I thought it was very underrated. I don't remember much about it now though. Crappy poster, but...



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/one-dark-night-cinema-one-sheet-movie-poster-1_zpsspka8lsf.jpg)




"The Black Castle"---stunning poster. Not one of Universal's big classics (I've never even heard of it) but it does feature Karloff and Chaney. 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Black%20Castle_zpsdit7nplz.jpg)



Yowza!!  Andy Milligan's "Bloodthirsty Butchers"!!!  O' how I've been trying to get that title...  His films are god-awful, but the posters are wild. This one is actually the nicest of the horror titles, but the others ("The Rats Are Coming, The Werewolves Are Here", "Torture Dungeon", "The Man With Two Heads", etc) have an amazing sleaze factor to them. LOVE EM!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Bloodthirsty%20Butchers_zpstlaasevn.jpg)



Although it does not mention it on the poster anywhere (waaagh!), "Dragonfly Squadron" is an old 3D movie from the 50s. It's also one of the few that have been restored and released on 3D blu-ray. This as those "diamond folds" in it that mar it somewhat---but it's still very nice. It also stars Bruce Bennett (He was a pre-Weismueller TARZAN when he was calling himself  Herman Brix)



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dragonfly%20Squadron_zpsz5i7sq1w.jpg)



"Lady Godiva"---why?  Believe it or not it is because I already have the 60s nudie quasi-sequel "Lady Godiva Rides"



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Lady%20Godiva_zpsxi6yrhaz.jpg)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/LadyGodivaRides_zps0e5d5391.jpg)



Oh.... I LOVE this poster for "Satan's Satellites"---so hokey and cheap and dig that robot! Zowie! Cool poster for a low budget turd!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Satans%20Satellites_zpszyod3pzu.jpg)



My final poster and prize o' the day is for "Viking Women and the Sea Serpent". Just GORGEOUS!!!  Wow!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Viking%20Women%20and%20the%20Sea%20Serpent_zpsv9lufkxe.jpg)


Of course now I have to PAY for these somehow. HA!  Oh well... Uh... Ha!

Until next time...

Good to be reminded of Henry Silva's existence! According to IMDB he's still very much alive. As for 'Blood Thirsty Butchers'. I saw Berwick Kaler - who plays the splendidly named Tobias Ragg - on stage back in the 80s. Apart from television work he is known within UK theatreland as one of the very best pantomime dames we've had for decades! I can't say there was much gore on offer that night but there was a good deal of dangerously sparkly glitter.

Dragonfly Squadron looks fantastic. And it has a funny tagline (next to the couple). I always liked the Vamp too. It looks so much better in person. And yes....We all go for a shopping madness once in a while. But hey...Enjoy them!

Hi there. Golly,thanks everyone for visiting while I was working the last few days. I appreciate your company and am always happy to see you.

Jeff/erik1925: It's always nice when something I buy gets a nod of approval from you. As a fellow Californian and as one of the administrators who has, I'm sure, way, Way, W-A-Y nicer stuff than I do, it's just nice to hear "I did good" (at least on some of the stuff I drag home...).


Steve/50s...  Hey!  I also really dig the VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT. Never seen the flick but that poster is amazing (in my book) and yes, most of the scans posted were photos of/scans of the actual posters and they are in great condition. YIPPIE!  Always a pleasure to see you, Steve.


Monocle/Nick: Henry Silva?  You must have gone way back to the first page with the "CRY OF A PROSTITUTE" poster to be reminded of him. Ha!  And... Eeek!  Dangerously sparkly glitter?!??!! O' the HORROR of that. Who knew that an actor in a Milligan movie would go on to be famous--even if in another branch of the entertainment world. Fascinating and that thank you for that tidbit.


Crazy Vick... OH MY STARS!!!! Thank you for posting that clip. It was actually WORSE than I imagined it to be. And you LIKED it?  Huh? Justin Beiber will be CRUSHED. Anyway, I know for sure now that I will never, EVER even attempt to watch that movie. P.U. What a turd. The poster is enough for me...


Brude/Ted...so delighted you liked "The Ghost"--one of those groovy euro-horrors from the 60s. It's more of a rarity though. (I think it's a sequel to "The Horrible Dr. Hitchcock" maybe?) Since it's not as well known, purchasing it was kind of questionable...but I did think the poster was cooly-O anyway. Thanks for agreeing. What's the difference between an "administrator" and a "global administrator"? "Global administrator" sounds so ominous in a way... Hmm.


Mirosae/Rosa:  I am pleased you also like "Dragonfly Squadron". Thanks!  I agree that VAMP looks better in real life. As for "shopping madness"---well,I went a tad mad tonight, but I could NOT help it. Several bucket list items were available tonight and, with the exception of a few I had to let go, I got them---spending big, BIG bucks in the process. YIKES! None of the images below are of the actual posters for various reasons. Lenticulars are notoriously hard to photograph, so the one lenticular poster image I grabbed from the internet. The others were all "won" this evening on emovieposter.com. Instead of running images with "emovieposter.com" splashed across them, I just found alternates online. Sorry--but would you have rather had it the other way?

Here's a peek at what bankrupted me tonight:


"Monster House" lenticular. This is cool. I saw one hanging in a theater once and had to have it. This lenticular moves in that it shows the boy standing in front of a house. As you move around the poster, the house morphs into a monster house. This image is about mid-transformation. Zowie! How neat-o!

"This Is Cinerama". This is an early 70s re-release, but I've never seen the original poster available and I'm a sucker for a gimmick. Zowie! How cool it must have been to see something in Cinerama. Love this audience on a rollercoaster image--too wild!

Here's another kiddie matinee poster for my collection, K Gordon Murray's imported/dubbed "Rumplestiltskin"!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Rumplestiltskin_zpsiky3j0ml.jpg)



And here is "Pinocchio in Outer Space"!!!  NOT a kiddie matinee, but when I came across this poster years ago (never able to get it--drat!), it's vibrant color and energy won me over. Had to have it! And it (proudly and prominently) features the voice Arnold Stang! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Pinocchio%20in%20Outer%20Space_zpsmqoda0vj.jpg)



The next two are super big bucket list items---oh my stars!  The first is the very first feature-length 3D movie that started the 3D craze of the 1950s....  "Bwana Devil"!!  A lion in your lap---a lover in your arms!  WOW! As a hoarder...er, lover of gimmick posters, this is a HUGE coup for me.



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Bwana%20Devil_zpsvoqrospx.jpg)




Finally, the biggest (i.e. most expensive and rarest?) bucket list find of recent times is "White Slaves of Chinatown"---the first in the infamous "Olga" series (it was followed by "Olga's House of Shame"--what a great title. Ha!, "Olga's Girls", "Madame Olga's Massage Parlor"--which is sadly considered a "lost film" as no prints are known to exist, and "Olga's Dance Hall Girls"--which is so awful and features an impostor "Olga", but is somehow still my favorite). The Olga films are cheap mid-60s nudie roughies. They are laughably bad/cheap. There is no synchronized sound--or very little. The story is mostly told with a narrator and classical music. In the b&w flicks, girls are abducted and tortured and forced into prostitution, drugs, etc. Sleazy but silly by today's standards. All very hokey. This was the very first time emovieposter.com featured this poster for auction (so said a little blurb on the bottom of the listing). Yowza. It's a crappy poster really, but I am sooooo thrilled.

Oh man!  I have a problem with my "WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN" poster. I deleted it last night from my "bucket list" and went to bed. This morning I received this email:


Shawn,

This is Bruce. After the auction for WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN closed, we discovered that the poster had part of the bottom border trimmed off (approximately 1 1/4"). The poster measures 27" x 39 3/4".

It was clearly visible in the image of the poster, but was not mentioned in the condition description.

If you want to cancel the poster, that is fine. If you do, we will offer it to the underbidder (we reviewed the bidding, and we imagine there is a good chance he will want it).

So please let us know ASAP if you want to keep it or if we should offer it to the underbidder.

I very much apologize for this error. I have talked to the people involved, and we will make a greater effort to not miss defects like this.

Please reply soon.

Thanks,
Bruce


Golly. I'm crushed. It's a very rare poster and one I really had been searching for. It was only in Good to Very Good condition due to staple holes and clear tape being applied to the back where the holes were--and now has the trimmed bottom. The poster was more than $400 (a fortune to me). The poster is more than 50 years old and this was the first time this particular site had offered it. That's how rare it is.

I now need to decide if I want to keep the trimmed poster or release it for a refund. I'm NOT into linen so linen backing and repair are not really an option. Hmm. I need to decide QUICKLY.

What would you do?

Thanks!

Here are my replies:

Hi Bruce.

Oh NOooooo. I am just heart sick that it's trimmed. I read about the tape on the back but there was no mention, as you said, about it not being the whole poster. I am just soooo crushed. I have wanted this poster for years and years--and now I don't know what to do. Golly, while $409 is a small fortune to me, I wasn't going to lose this poster. I had stopped bidding on two other posters ("Have Rocket Will Travel" and "Joys of Jezebel"--which I also dearly wanted) because I suspected that "White Slaves" (which was only about $100 then) might get expensive. (It did!). I actually deleted it off of my "bucket list" of posters last night before going to bed. Waaagh! I just don't know what to say.

I'm NOT a linenbacking fan at all. I wouldn't even know how to go about getting it done, who is reputable and who isn't, or the cost. I just don't know what to do or say. Spend $409 for a trimmed poster or let my years-long hunt go on?

I am sure Mr. Runner up will want it. I'm not sure if I want to let it go--but it's not a whole poster. Hmm. What would YOU do? You are the expert... (Ha!) Could you give me a discount at all?

Golly. Can I have a few hours to think about it and get back to you by the end of the day? Dang. I just don't know what to do.

Thank you.

***

And then this second note:

Okay... I've thought about it, looked at the poster again (I noticed you added the fact that it was trimmed to the description now), and looked at the bidding history. While I am still just sick about it being trimmed, I thought I would suggest this. I will pass on the poster to Mr. Runner Up (La713294) bidder. If he takes it for his last bid of $399, so be it. If he passes for $399, that would make me 2nd runner up (over Th455102, whose last top bid was $164) at $169. I'll take it then.

I'm probably kissing this poster goodbye.

Man. What a horrendous bummer.

Thanks!

****

I'm sure Mr. Runner Up (LA713294) will take it. Bye bye poster... Oh well. It was mine for a few hours at least...

Thanks for the help and the words of wisdom.*

CHEERS!

Waaagh...it's gone.

Here's the note from Bruce:

Shawn,

We will offer it to the underbidder. If he doesn't want it, we will re-auction it, mentioning the trimmed bottom border.

We will let you know what happens. We will get the poster taken out of your order and we will refund you the portion you paid for it.

Again, I apologize for this mistake.

Thanks,
Bruce

That is a sad story.
But I think the bright side is that every collector in this hobby just saw the price this poster fetched.
That might just be enough to bring a few more out into the light.
Keep the faith, Go-Go Monster.
There is another one out there with your name on it.

Ha ha ha! That IS funny. At least I was honest as to where I found the photo (off of the internet, randomly). Who knew it was yours? Ha! But you have an amazing collection of lenticulars. Oh my STARS! I have several myself--but you...WOW!

My lenticulars:

Texas Chainsaw 3D
Alice In Wonderland
Lost World: Jurassic Park 2
Final Destination
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Shark Boy and Lava Girl
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Max Payne
Day After Tomorrow
Monster House
Spy Kids 3D
Ice Age Continental Drift
Shadowbuilder
Chronicles of Narnia


Monster House was, of course, the most recent acquisition. I also have a badly damaged re-release of "A Nightmare Before Christmas" and another badly damaged (spent $200 on it and it arrived destroyed...no compensation from the seller (although there was supposed to have been insurance on it--he never did anything to help me collect it)...of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I don't suppose there's any hope for those?

I bow down before ye, o' master of all things lenticular.

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on June 15, 2015, 03:43:01 AM
Hello.  I've got more to post...some of it groovy, other stuff just okay (oops! I was only supposed to be buying bucket list stuff from here on out).  I also need your help/opinion on an item I got within the last week as well. (More on that at the bottom of this entry.)

First, it's yet another one of my kiddie matinee posters from the 60's/early 70's. This one is another Childhood Productions poster for "Aladdin and his Magic Lamp". Again, this is presented in Storybook Color...and (zowie!) Storybookscope!!!  Ooooo. It was also "Never before shown anywhere" ...except maybe in the Soviet Union where this film was originally made? Ha! I have not many of these old kiddie matinee movies--except for the few I actually was dragged to as a child--and certainly have seen none as an adult. But it's on imdb (with it's original Russian credits), so I may have to give it a watch. I'm sure the poster is better than the flick. That usually seems to be the case.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Aladdin%20and%20his%20Magic%20Lamp_zpsfotecoch.jpg)



Next is a foreign poster for the "Exorcist" ripoff "Beyond the Door"!  This poster is in English, but is definitely NOT the U.S. one sheet. Instead of "directed by" it says "Direct by", so clearly whoever created this didn't have complete command of the English language--but very close. I actually like this movie. REALLY!  I think that may be because A) it stars Juliet Mills, who so charmed me as a child in "Nanny and the Professor" and B) during the post-"Exorcist" hoopla, I remembered all of the hoopla that followed THIS movie, too. I didn't get to see "The Exorcist" until years later (1981 I think...on a double bill with "The Shining", not counting the glimpses of it at a drive in when it played on the screen behind us)...but I DID catch "Beyond the Door" on late night TV not so long after it played in theaters...so this was where I lost my possession movie virginity (oh my!).  Stunning artwork on this--although it really does not go with the movie that well. Ha!



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Beyond%20the%20Door_zpskaipgvsg.jpg)



"The Bloody Pit of Horror" with "Terror-Creatures from Beyond the Grave" is next. I love my double feature posters--yahoo--and I've longed for a "Bloody Pit of Horror" poster (there are two versions--this one and one when it was on a double bill with "Body Snatcher From Hell". But this one features the BPOH much more than the other one does). It's such a silly, over the top flick. Mickey Hargitay is in high camp overdrive...without even meaning to be.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Bloody%20Pit%20of%20Horror%20and%20Terror%20Creatures%20From%20the%20Grave_zpsunjz7x2z.jpg)



George Romero's "Knightriders" is not the greatest flick ever, but I've wanted to get the poster of it for a long while...just NOT this version. I like the alternate version better. Oh well. This will do until the other comes my way.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Knightriders_zps0ulrx9zd.jpg)



"Peyton Place" is one of my fave movies--seen it a zillion times. I actually already had a copy of this poster, but this looks like it might be a nicer copy. "Peyton Place" seems to be a more or less hard title to find. (And, my stars, it took me YEARS before I ever even SAW a "Return to Peyton Place" one sheet. Jeepers!) It wasn't too expensive, so hopefully this can replace my old copy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Peyton%20Place_zpsqs0vnaqq.jpg)



I also like my old. cheesy sword & sandal/peplum movies (or, as I simply call them, "Hercules movies"--even though Herc is clearly NOT in this picture). This one is "Son of Samson". I already had a rough copy of this poster. This looked like another upgrade. Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Son%20of%20Samson_zpsvsrpldxu.jpg)



The movie "Tentacles" SUCKS! Man,it's a stinker. The best thing about it is the one sheet (a female swimmer being attacked by a giant octopus. Very cool.).  I have that, but came across this poster recently. Like the "Beyond the Door" poster above, this one is a foreign release poster--but curiously in English. (Both posters are coming to me from Peru!)  I don't know why I bothered. Yes, this is in English and yes, it features artwork I hadn't seen before...but the movie really does suck and I really dig the U.S. one sheet more than this one. Oh well. It's a done deal.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tentacles_zpslthyakha.jpg)



"The Wild Rebels"??  No idea. It was just cheap and it was just a poster that was "interesting enough" (and cheap enough) to bid on from a dealer who had something else I wanted that closed at the same time. To pad out shipping costs, i bid on this too...and ended up losing the main attraction poster (which, at this point, I don't even recall what it was). Oops.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Wild%20Rebels_zpsnzodsrzu.jpg)



Okay this next one is a "bad" poster. Just look at creepily Leon Isaac's bulging, staring eyeballs. Is he a zombie...or is his acting that bad? Ha! I'm sure not many of you have a "Fighting Mad" poster in your collections...at least NOT on purpose. Ha! Anyone know who the artist is? 21 Century releasing employed this guy (whoever he is) for a number of their posters--including, I am sure, "Revenge of the Shogun Women"--which was the very first framed movie poster I hung on my walls as an adult. His work has a juvenile, cartoon-y feel. I actually LIKE it (particularly the "Revenge of the Shogun Women" poster obviously). Not that I wanted or needed this, but it was cheap and clearly by the same artist who did a lot of 21st Century's posters.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fighting%20Mad_zpsz6y73eyj.jpg)



"The Obsessed One"--also from 21st Century, although I don't think it was the same artist--looks like another blaxploitation horror flick. I am reasonably sure I have a copy of this poster already (do I? Hmm.) But this was cheap--so why not get one to be sure? I know nothing about the movie...but it's from 1974 and the ad copy makes it sound like an "Exorcist" knock-off. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Obsessed%20One_zpsbabpunmh.jpg)



Here's a poster that is a total mystery---"Berserker". Why do I have it? Because it came with "The Obsessed One". I know nothing about it...but also don't know if it's a theatrical poster or a video poster. There's no rating on it--but there's also no "now available on videocassette" either. It's copyrighted 1987 from American Video Group. I know at that time, some video companies were producing low budget product for theatrical release and then releasing it on video right afterwards...before just skipping theatrical releases altogether. IMDB says this HAD a theatrical release, but was this the theatrical poster...or the video poster...or BOTH? Looks funny/awful though (I saw part of the trailer on Youtube...something about a Nordic legend and a terribly silly looking fake killer bear attacking people! Ha!)



(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Berserker_zpsdivar0gs.jpg)



"Bandit Island"...This is the only photo that is NOT an actual photo of the poster I bought. The reason is mine was purchased on emovieposter.com...and they have that lovely watermark on all of their pictures (joy...). Anyway---had to have this one. I love gimmick flicks--and 3D is gimmick-a-rama in my book, especially since it's vintage 1950s 3D. Zowie! The graphics are great on the poster and the amazing thing is that "Bandit Island" was only a 3D short---not a feature length film. It is also,reportedly, lost. No known prints exist. Waaagh. Fun poster though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/bandit_island_poster_01_zpsy3cxitbk.jpg)



This last new acquisition is where I need your opinion/help. Occasionally I will look on Craigslist for posters. There's usually not much--if anything--listed. However quite a while back (Maybe a year or so ago), I noticed this guy selling this one poster that had me curious. He was asking $400 for it though--and that was way out of my ballpark. After not looking at Craigslist for several months, I looked again last week and saw he still had it for sale, but had marked it down to $100. In addition to it's being pricey, I think a reason he did not sell this poster was because the owner lived in Yosemite National Park--which is quite a drive (and you have to pay $30 to get in to the park!). But at $100...  Hmm. I was tempted. You see, in addition to being autographed, there was also included a prop from the movie attached to it--all nicely framed and with a COA. I contacted the seller and decided to buy it. It's Tim Burton's  "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" poster, and is supposedly autographed by Johnny Depp and three others (actors?) from the film, and comes complete with a prop Wonka bar attached.

I went and picked it up today. It's nice and it does have a COA from a place I'd never heard of before. He said he got it at Disneyworld quite a while back. Years ago (1998) I visited the Disney-MGM Studios and went to a store selling old, original Disney movie posters. I bought an "Escape to Witch Mountain" and a 70s "Alice in Wonderland" re-release poster. But it was a simple store--no fancy framed things like this. And the WONKA remake isn't from Disney. The COA was from Starabilia--apparently a completely different store that used to be in Orlando's Downtown Disney section.

I went online to find out more information about the company. Apparently there is controversy as to whether or not the autographed memorabilia they sold was real or fake--or both. While autographed posters are not my thing and I wasn't a huge fan of the Wonka remake (I prefer the original, although the new version had it's moments and some amazing visuals), I can't imagine the Wonka bar prop was a fake...or could it have been? The film isn't that old and probably came out while Starabilia was in business. Aside from Depp, the other signatures are for the actors who played Charlie, Grandpa Joe, and Mike Tee Vee. If they were going to forge names, why not forge Tim Burton's or Christopher Lee's...why go for two kids and an old guy you've never heard of?  I'm just not sure what to think? Can they fake props easily? Hmm.

As I said, the frame is nice and it's glass in front--not plexiglass/plastic. The prop Wonka bars from this flick on eBay go for about $125 each. But are those real or fakes? Hmm. What do you think...was this a good deal, a bad deal, or an okay deal. I asked erik1925/Jeff, but have not heard back from him yet (I know he has a life and is busy...and he may not know anything about this poster / starabilia stuff). Anyone else out there know anything?  Here's some pics:


Here's the poster. Depp's signature (or is it?) is on the right just above his hand.  Just below his hand is a little plaque listing the four people whose signatures are supposed to be on the poster. 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/P1020665_zpsxlbhwdta.jpg)



This is the prop Wonka bar and another little plaque stating it is a prop used in the film. The COA is on a separate certificate that is not attached to the poster.

This is some very great and colorful looking art here, MAGG! Any idea what country it's from? The film was shot in Italy. And the distributor named at the top of the poster, is not one of several that imdb mentions ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071212/companycredits?ref_=ttloc_ql_5 ).

What is curious too, is that the producer and one of the co-directors (O.Hellman) are the same person. He was also one of the writers.

In any case, congrats on this one (and all the others you just listed and discussed).  thumbup

Hi MAGG, I like this one quite a lot. I wish I had some 3D effect old style posters like this.

I am pretty sure EMP will provide you an unwatermarked image of any poster you win just ask them. Not sure though if there is a time limit to that.

This is some very great and colorful looking art here, MAGG! Any idea what country it's from? The film was shot in Italy. And the distributor named at the top of the poster, is not one of several that imdb mentions ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071212/companycredits?ref_=ttloc_ql_5 ).

What is curious too, is that the producer and one of the co-directors (O.Hellman) are the same person. He was also one of the writers.

Hi Jeff. I'm NOT sure what country it was used for. I know the film was released as "The Devil Within Her" in England, so that's not it. I am getting the poster from Peru, but that really doesn't help as South America is Spanish/Portuguese...not English.

Oliver Hellman is the anglicised version of Ovidio Assonitis, but foreign films are often Americanizing names to make them sound like American products.

This was actually an Italian/U.S. co-production. Interiors shot in Italy, exteriors shot in San Francisco and Sausalito. Producer Edward Montoro is an interesting footnote. He founded Film Ventures International--which produced and/or distributed some wonderful trash back in the 70s/early 80s up through "Great White". From wikipaedia:

In 1980, after acquiring the Italian film Great White, another movie regarded as a Jaws rip-off, Montoro was sued by Universal Pictures because it was too derivative of the Steven Spielberg-directed hit. Great White had a large advertising budget of $4 million and achieved commercial success during its first week at the theaters. Nevertheless, Universal Pictures won the lawsuit and the film was immediately pulled from theatrical release.[8]

In 1984, Film Ventures International was on the verge of collapse due to financial issues including the release failure of Great White, the poor box office performance of Montoro's final film Mutant and his pending divorce settlement. Montoro eventually took one million dollars from FVI and vanished never to be seen again. Film Ventures International officially closed its doors in 1985. To this day, Montoro's whereabouts remain unknown, though it is believed he fled to Mexico.[9]

The unusual disappearance and the collapse of FVI have further contributed to Montoro's notorious legacy.

Also, co-director (on this poster) Robert Barret is NOT on the U.S. one sheet. Instead we have Richard Barrett listed as writer. (Robert Barrett is the name of Juliet Mills' husband's character in the film). I think Robert (or Richard) Barret(t) is another alias for Hellman/Assonitis, although "he" does have his own IMDB listing with a few scattered credits.

Finally, although it's mentioned in one of the trailers, I've never seen a poster that listed the gimmick-y "Quadraphonic Possessound" sound system that was hyped (which was probably non-existent). The British release had a similar "Vibrasound" promoted (and is mentioned on the Quad) that promised you would literally "quiver with fright".




Hi MAGG, I like this one quite a lot. I wish I had some 3D effect old style posters like this.

I am pretty sure EMP will provide you an unwatermarked image of any poster you win just ask them. Not sure though if there is a time limit to that.

Hi there!  Always nice to see you pop in. Yes, i LOVE the old school 3D posters with their popping-off-the-screen graphics. The new 3D movies don't even bother to promote the effect...but then the new 3D technology doesn't really pop off of the screen like the old technology did. It just adds more depth. I have a few other vintage 3D posters. Wish I had more...


As for EMP and unwatermarked pictures, I do remember seeing somewhere on the site that they would SELL (or was it LEASE???) unwatermarked images...for a price. I already paid enough for the poster...I'll just borrow an image elsewhere to illustrate it. I'm not gonna pay for an image as well. But thanks for the suggestion.

Yep--found it. Here's what it says:

You have expressed interest in leasing an ultra-high resolution digital image of one or more items (mostly movie posters) in the Hershenson/Allen Archive. If you wish to lease an image, send us an email through our contact form, and we will quickly reply to you via e-mail. When you send us the e-mail, it will automatically show the item you were just viewing. If you would like to lease additional images, please list them in the contact form including each item's film title and poster size OR paste in a list of links from the Hershenson/Allen Archive items you are wanting to lease.

CHEERS!!!

Thanks for the additional details, MAGG. From what I read, Barrett is also another alias of the director/producer, Assonitis. He was much the one man band on this film. I wouldn't be surprised if he made an appearance in it, as well, even if uncredited...LOL

Coming from Peru.. yet all the text in English (with the exception of the one typo) is curious. And i see no printer's info on the bottom borders. Can i ask.. what is written next to the one carriage wheel? Maybe the artist's name? I can't quite make it out.

Regardless, the art sure pops, has amazing detail and I think it's kick-ass!  thumbsup.gif

Congrats again on the acquisition!

Jeff, the name near the baby carriage wheel is "Spataro". Ever heard of him/her? The artwork is nice...but, as I said, it really doesn't fit the movie. The woman's face could be Juliet Mills...but the crone on the left with the weird tendril thing hanging from her cheek...who is that? Not possessed Juliet...and not anyone else in the movie either. Oh well--it's still nice.

CHEERS!

No, I havent.. but the name certainly sounds like it could be Italian (latin). He/she did nice work.  thumbsup.gif

According to emovie, the poster was printed in Italy, for English speaking audiences. But it is a country of origin poster.

http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/11278874.html

And Spataro did a good number of posters. He has an often colorful style, and did posters for a number of countries aside from Italy.

Bravo Sherlock Holmes. We'll done.  Now if you can help me with that Wonka item I messaged you about.... No. Kidding.  The Beyond The Door mystery was enough. I am ever so impressed and thrilled to learn the origins of the poster. Thank you. Cheers!

Post by: erik1925 on June 15, 2015, 05:26:12 PM
Your welcome, MAGG.

Considering who the autographs are from on the WONKA poster, i suppose there is a good chance they are legit. But it would take some research, comparing to a known original, etc, to be 100% that someone(s) with a blue sharpie didnt just scrawl on that OS. Is Depp's name signed as John Depp? Hard to tell from your pic. Can u snap a close up of his sig?

And as far as the prop bar... again... it could be genuine. Im sure hundreds were made for the film. So those would be fairly easy to obtain, by someone associated with putting this kind of display poster together.

Post by: brude on June 15, 2015, 06:54:10 PM
I believe the Wonka item is genuine.
The Depp sig looks real: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=johnny+depp+autograph&FORM=HDRSC2 (http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=johnny+depp+autograph&FORM=HDRSC2)
and I agree with you when you say "If they were going to forge names, why not forge Tim Burton's or Christopher Lee's...why go for two kids and an old guy you've never heard of? "
Plus the prop and set-up look legit (even though I have never seen one of these before).

Your question re: Berserker.
It was a direct-to-video release, on Prism I believe.
If it ever got a theatrical screening, it was probably at a small film festival or in someone's garage.
I have a VHS screener which I watched and reviewed in 1987.
I do remember that it had some moments, but overall was low-budget boring.

As for emovieposter's watermark -- if you purchase a poster from Bruce, just let them know you'd like the HQ scan for your win. 
They'll then put you on a list and automatically send you the pics of your wins from that point on.
In fact, drop Bruce or Cherie a line and they can probably send you scans of your recent past purchases.
Nobody does it better'n Bruce and Co.

Great haul of posters once again, Go-Go.
Especially like Beyond the Door, which I liked so much in the theaters, that I went to see it twice.
Back in the day on the big screen with big sound, it was pretty scary.
Yes, I am a glutton for punishment.
 cheers

Hey Erik1925/Jeff!  Here is the "Johnny Depp autograph" (the other three names are far easier to read/make out):

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/autograph_zpspephzm8o.jpeg)

Ted/Brude---you SAW "Beyond the Door" in the theater...TWICE!?! AWESOME!  Do you remember anything special about the sound system? Was it presented in "possessound" or "vibrasound" where you saw it? How marvelous!

Thanks for the tip about EMP and the scans. Golly--that would be awesome to just get them sent to me. Thank you so much.

And thank you both for stopping in.

And now--laundry calls!  O' the glamorous life I lead...

Thank you BOTH for this info. Zowie! I contacted them and, starting with my next "wins" (isn't that term an oxymoron? You have to PAY for something you WIN.) I will receive hi-res scans of my posters. YIPPIE!!!  Thank you BOTH!

Howdy out there in Poster Land. Here are images of my latest poster scores!  Oooooo.. Nothing to really write home about. Well, there are some things I'm excited about. Take a gander. See what you think...


Although I've never seen "Varan the Unbelievable", I love my giant monster posters (the movies themselves usually suck...monstrously!). I saw a linen copy in an antique store in Washington that I wanted desperately...except I don't like linen posters and the coloring looked off. It had been restored with a lot of lavender hues that didn't look right. I'm glad I waited because now I have a paper version in spiffy condition ...and there's not a spot of lavender in sight!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Varan%20the%20Unbelievable_zpswmkseuak.jpg)



"EARTHQUAKE!!!" When I was a kid in the '70s, the disaster era kicked into full swing. The newspaper ads for "Earthquake" not only got me about seeing the movie, the new SENSURROUND process fueled my penchant for gimmicks to the Nth degree. Zowie!  While I have a copy of the US one sheet for EARTHQUAKE already (several copies, in fact) and the movie is a cheesy/campy favorite (the director, Mark Robson, was also responsible for other camp faves "Peyton Place" and "Valley of the Dolls"! Ha!), I've never seen a one sheet with anything about SENSURROUND printed on it. There has been an occasional sticker, but that's all I've encountered. This one not only mentions SENSURROUND, it also prominently features a cool matte painting that was used on the back of the soundtrack album (YES, I was an uber nerd and bought that too). This is also my very first Japanese poster (and YOU are there for the loss of my Japanese poster virginity... Oh MY!).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Earthquake%20Japanese_zpsdc8tt2vn.jpg)



"Make Them Dies Slowly"...Yep, i dig the cannibal sub-genre as well. I already have a copy of "Make Them Die Slowly"--but this one was inexpensive-ish and tri-folded, so I figured it might be in better condition. I was kind of holding out for a copy with the original title, "Cannibal Ferox", but... Maybe I'll find one of those yet.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Make%20them%20Die%20Slowly_zpsf9xy8pd5.jpg)



"The Eliminators"---doesn't that sound like people who poop for a living...or kinky enjoyment?  I think I saw this low-budget thing back in the VHS days. Gotta love the motorized half man/half cyborg thing. I think that character actually had a spinoff movie of his own. I don't know--gotta dig the grindhouse sleaze.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Eliminators_zps1znaqavd.jpg)



Okay--the poster for "Linda" doesn't look like much. Crappy black & white doodle of a young woman's torso with small crabs all over it...  WTF? Well, this is actually the U.S. retitling of Jess Franco's "Lorna The Exorcist" and if you know that movie, you KNOW the crab scene.  EEEW!  Had to have it. But...probably never display it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Linda%20aka%20Lorna%20the%20Exorcist_zpszoevht7k.jpg)


"The Boy Who Cried Werewolf"---I got this as part of a lot and I have never seen this particular film before. I think i may have a copy already...and I am certain I have it on a combo poster with "SSSSS". Kerwin "Sinbad"/"Jack the Giant Killer" Matthews is the star...is HE the werewolf? Yikes!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Boy%20Who%20Cried%20Werewolf_zpscslsgwrs.jpg)




Yes, it's another copy of the kiddie matinee import "Cinderella". I know I just got one of these not too long back---but this was too cheap to pass up. Ha! (I gotta STOP doing that...)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cinderella%20other%20copy_zpspjxso8zr.jpg)




Speaking of fairy tales, I also picked up "Snow White and the Three Stooges" starring forgotten ice skating champion Carol Heiss (Who??). This is actually my 2nd copy of this poster. The first was completely mangled while being packaged. The seller's assistant  tried to roll it to put in a tube--which was fine. But it apparently unrolled or something halfway in...so instead of re-rolling it, he just crammed the remaining parts of the poster into the roll, completely ruining the poster. I got a refund on that one--but had to replace it. I was lucky to get this one. It's my first Stooges poster (Yes, I guess you could say you've also witnessed me losing my Stooges virginity today. Oh my! What kind of poster tramp you must think me to be...one of easy virtue and easily tempted! SHOCKING!!!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Snow%20White%20and%20the%20Three%20Stooges_zpscrai5ite.jpg)



"Voyage to the End of the Universe"---I've never seen this movie (although I've read a bit about it and know it's culled from some Russian sci-fi opus mixed with other footage). I've noticed this poster being quite pricey in the past...so I was amazed when it became mine and I was not outbid on it. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Voyage%20to%20the%20End%20of%20the%20Universe_zpslndvdzjd.jpg)




"Witchboard"--Ha!  This was an okay little horror flick i saw in the theater back in the day. It was cheap. I bid...ooops! It became mine. Okay...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Witchboard_zpsljxmxdbj.jpg)



I originally saw "The Boogey Man" on a double feature with "Zombie" back in 1980 (NO, I was NOT old enough to go see that then...but that did NOT stop me!). "Zombie" was awesome---but I was also impressed with "Boogey Man" at the time as well. The sequels have all sucked--as has everything else by Ulli Lommel I've ever dared to watch. On later viewings, "The Boogey Man" hasn't held up quite as well--but it's still okay-ish.  I have other copies of this poster already. This one came in a lot.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Boogey%20Man_zpsvn1oacan.jpg)



I wish I had NOT gotten this particular poster, "Terror of the Tongs"!  I was unfamiliar with the movie and the poster...but was intrigued (Mostly because, I think, it stars Christopher Lee in Asian garb...and about 2 years ago I waded through his 5-movie "Fu Manchu" series). After spending a good amount of cash-o-rama to "win" this poster, it occurred to me that the pinkish splotch--announcing that the film was in Eastman Color--didn't really belong with the poster. I google searched other images and, yep...that was NOT supposed to be there. Someone must have colored that in. GRRR!  Instant reject!  Dang it!!!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Terror%20of%20the%20Tongs_zpshhb4vgdf.jpg)



I picked up the 20th anniversary re-release lenticular for "E.T."


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ET%20lenticular_zpsrxowe8fm.jpg)




Double feature time---it's "The Crawling Thing (From Another World??)" and "Creature of Evil"!  I had never seen this poster before when i saw it for sale. I'd never heard of those movies. I've since learned they are probably re-titlings of "Half Human" and "Monster From Green Hell"--two movies I HAVE heard of but have not seen.

Here's a cheap-o trailer for the combo which shows the poster at the end:

https://youtu.be/NYtMqcQYbGA

And the poster itself:

I shudder to think that I've seen all of those films, except for Cinderella.

We'll keep that a secret.

Part 2

I don't usually buy video posters...but for some direct-to-video movies, you have no choice. I bout the poster for "Scooby Doo on Zombie Island"--the first direct-to-video feature length Scooby movie (great art on that poster...and the movie was pretty decent as well) and have been trying to get other Scooby titles as well. While I am pretty sure I already have these two--I'm not 100% sure...so...I bought them (again?) pretty cheaply ($2 each).  Here are "Scooby Doo Meets the Boo Brothers" and "Scooby Doo and the Alien Invaders":


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scooby%20Doo%20Meets%20the%20Boo%20Brothers_zpsws4rwoec.jpg)

and


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scooby%20Doo%20and%20the%20Alien%20Invaders_zpsinx4omrv.jpg)



The next one I have been trying to get for years--but have always been outbid on. I have never seen "Scandal Inc.", but first encountered the poster while I was working as a writer for "The Fresno Bee". I wanted to buy this poster, frame it and hang it in or near my cubicle. But, my career at the newspaper is over. I'm a nurse now. Snore... The writing gig was so much more fun, but the nursing thang helps me afford my poster addic...er, habit. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scandal%20Inc_zpsylcjxxmm.jpg)



I have the exciting 3D version poster for "Man in the Dark" (with the rollercoaster action), but had never seen the 2D version poster for the same flick until i saw this one. HAD to have it. Completely different art. The movie is now available in 3D blu ray...and I bought it...but I need to wait until I can afford a 3D blu ray player and 3D TV to watch it. HA!!  By the way, I had never heard of actress Audrey Totter until I started collecting posters...and have since seen her name a lot. I don't think I've ever actually seen a movie with her in it--but every time I see her name, I keep wishing her first name had been Tater.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Man%20in%20the%20Dark%202D_zpsfyjy6opg.jpg)



Years ago, movieposter.com (at least I THINK it was them) was a place I shopped for posters when I could afford them. It's still around and I visit occasionally--but the selection is not what it used to be and the prices have gone up. However...back in the day, the website used to feature a poster for something called "Loch Ness Horror". OOooo i sooo wanted it. I was never able to get one--and hardly ever saw them available--until now.

Finally, here it is... "White Slaves of Chinatown"!!  This is the same poster I bid on a few weeks back, won...and gave up once I discovered it was trimmed. They relisted it recently and, crazy me, just could NOT take a chance I'd never see another--so I bid, bid, bid and won it again---for about $100 cheaper than I won it before.  So here it is--trimmed and all. I'm not sure how I feel about winning it this time. (And yes, the wins from emovieposter.com are the scans of the actual items withOUT the watermark!).

I think you made the right call, going for this one again, MAGG. It bugged you that it was trimmed.. and why not hold/keep this copy until if/when another copy shows up. That you sent it back wont keep you up at night, anymore!!  ;D

Enjoy the poster... and congrats on the re-win, too.. AND for less moola!

Ted/Brude, that has been one of my biggest concerns/worries since getting on here--that someone else on here would bid on the same stuff I want. If I won, I'd annoy them greatly. I know others out there must be bidding against me (someone is--that's for sure! Ha!). I've been lucky a few times--but have I been bidding against someone I "Know" on here. I'm glad you are okay with my getting this one...I had NO IDEA you were interested. I must have snatched things away from others a time or two--and vice-versa. Maybe we should have a way to call "dibs" on things? Ha!

Enjoy the poster... and congrats on the re-win, too.. AND for less moola!


Thank you. I am thrilled to get it--I think. O man--it was so expensive. But I HAD to have one. You understand. And you are right. As soon as another (better) one comes my way, this one is off to the auction block again.

CHEERS!

Ha Ha Ha!!! So true on the saving cash part (although I don't expect to recoup the cash when I re-sell it down the road...but that's okay!) and the 99% part had me literally giggling out loud (GOL!!!). Thanks for stopping by!

Rosa, I am so glad you like the video posters for the Scooby movies. Scoob and I go way, WAY back. It seems like I've known him forever. I'm 50 now and Scooby is...well, I promised I'd never tell. Let's just say that, in dog years, he makes me look incredibly young in comparison. Ha!

I've been noticeably absent from the boards. Why? I'm still reeling from the blow of my recent purchase. OUCH!  There was a "White Slaves of Chinatown" poster offered on the recent Profiles in History movie poster auction. It was paired with an H. G. Lewis "2000 Maniacs" poster (also on my bucket list). I bid a crazy high price---and won. Oh my... The winning bid was $500, but with tax, shipping and premium, it was close to $700. OH MY STARS!!! That knocked the wind out of my sails in a big way...

Anyway, here are the posters (the official auction scans of the actual items) and a "Godzilla Vs The Smog Monster" poster I scored rather reasonably around the same time (the photo for it that is shown is NOT the actual poster--just used for illustration). Oooooo my aching wallet.


"Godzilla Vs The Smog Monster"--this may be one of the only GODZILLA films before the (first) reboot in 1985 that I have NOT seen. But I couldn't let the poster pass by at such a reasonable (comparatively) price.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/godzilla-vs-smog-monster-movie-poster-1972-1020387340_zpsu18dqaga.jpg)



Here it is--the world's most expensive copy of the "White Slaves of Chinatown" poster!  Zowie!  I still feel like I was just punched in the guy. Now I'll have to sell off the trimmed version I scored on emovieposter.com. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/White%20Slaves%20of%20Chinatown_zpshyxovw0b.jpg)



Finally, here it is---H. G. Lewis' "Two Thousand Maniacs". Although I do have a few posters for his exploitation films, it's his horror titles i really collect...and there are now fewer left to go before my collection IS complete. Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Two%20Thousand%20Maniacs_zpssdpulxe5.jpg)


That's it. I am uber-poor. I don't know when I'll be back. Ooooooo...I'd better recheck my interest rate on my credit cards.

CHEERS!

Way to go on WHITE SLAVES #2, there, MAG! All tidy, neat and untrimmed. Congrats on the win.. the dual win, that's for sure.

Now what to do with trimmed Slave #1? Will she be heading to the chopping or auction block?

The new wins all look great.

Magg, it looks really good. And it was folded as issued (and maybe a previous owner folded it a little off the mark at one time). A little R&R is all it needs. And if there are any small cross splits or tiny horizontal 'spider' tears, know, too, that its all part of the poster's history; it has lived a life and is now sharing part with you, the MAGG!  Again, it looks really great, and the main thing is -- you found a full, untrimmed copy that you were hoping to find, and in relatively short order.

And before you bid, did you not click on and super-size the image, so you could see the tinier details? I have a feeling you would have bid anyhow.  happy1

Jeff, no...I did not see the image before I bid. I only saw the catalogue image (which was obscured somewhat by the 2000 Maniacs poster on top of it) in the pdf catalogue. I bid based on the description in the catalogue. It wasn't until the end of the auction and the confusion as to whether I won or not that discovered the auction was listed on ebay!

Vick, you are right. We ARE all slaves to poster town. Shocking! Shameful! Expensive!

Rosa, I'm sure you are right. In time the fold lines won't bother me as they do now...jello? I GOT it fonally. Right? Who hoo.

I'm glad you like my thread... But the humor seems to come from the others...but they ARE doing their thing on here. Yippie for me. But THANK YOU!

Vick, I don't buy "new posters". Ha!  But I know what you meant...however, my poster collection compulsion does NOT know how to stop. I have a few more (ahem) new additions I'll post in a few days. Yowza! They are just too many of my "MUST HAVES" popping up of late to ignore...  Is there a 12 step program for people like us? (Well, 12 steps is far too many. How about a 1 or 2 step program? 3 steps MAX!)

OOoooo crap-a-rama!  I won't even begin to tell you what sort of a financial mess I got myself into today with a certain auction house's movie poster auctions closing yesterday and today (that story will come...eeek! Stay tuned!). However, while I was trying to navigate its new, updated website, I discovered all of these past purchases of mine listed. Huh? I thought I had only started using this site AFTER joining this site. And yet, there were purchases from 2010, 2011, and 2012. Some of the items I could swear I got on eBay--and this auction house does have a presence there. But I am still flabbergasted to see them there...and the prices I paid (so incredibly CHEAP, especially when compared to the fallout from the "White Slaves of Chinatown" purchases and those of the last two days...which I am still NOT ready to talk about).

So here is a look at purchases past (purchases present will be coming soon...my shock and horror have subsided a bit):

"Fort Bowie" and "Oklahoma Territory". This was a 2 poster lot. I'm no fan of westerns and have no interest in the "Oklahoma Territory" one sheet. The "Fort Bowie" one is a different matter. In fact, I remember bidding on this and being thrilled I got it. It's stored away...but until now I did NOT even realize it was called "Fort Bowie". I thought it was called "Massacre!". Yep. So enthralled was I with the artwork of the Indian...er, Native American about to scalp the blonde, my eyes never wandered down to the lower portion of the poster. Ha!  This set pushed me back...$32 in 2011.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Oklahoma%20Territory_zpsmlmopord.jpg)

Another 2 poster lot was the Steve Reeves version of "Thief of Baghdad" with Guy Williams' "Captain Sindbad" (That extra "d" has always bothered me...). ($15 in 2011)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Thief%20of%20Baghdad%20Reeves_zpsbnyxvp1d.jpg)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Captain%20Sindbad_zps3bohyzdz.jpg)

Also from 2011, William Castle's 3D western "Fort Ti"! Zowie! I'm a sucker for a gimmick. William Castle was the king of the gimmicks (and he had some great ones for his horror flicks). 3D has always been a fave--especially the way the posters were presented back in it's hey day. I have so few 3D posters from the 50s...this one set me back $15 (!!!!) just 4 years ago.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fort%20Ti_zps4imbdijo.jpg)

Another 2011 purchase---"Face of the Screaming Werewolf. A cheap 50s horror flick with a cheap-looking poster. But only $21 ???  SALE! Anything that cheap from the 50s--snatch it up. Wow! i bought it but am amzed at how cheap it was looking back. It's incredible how prices have just skyrocketed lately!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Face%20of%20the%20Screaming%20Werewolf_zpsnpifjvxc.jpg)

I had never heard of "Fair Wind to Java" before the auction for this poster came up. OMG. The poster is in primo shape, with gorgeous artwork and colors.
$25, 2012.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fair%20Wind%20to%20Java_zps2nn4cqug.jpg)

"The Fiction Makers" is apparently a movie version of "The Saint" starring a pre-James Bond Roger Moore. Whether this was an original movie or, like many of the "Man From U.N.C.L.E." movies, this was culled from TV episodes, I do not know. I had not seen one before and have not seen one since. A $15 from 2010.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Saint_zpsqlx2hxop.jpg)

Something that WAS made from TV episodes was "Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack". This Australian poster is for the movie (not released in the US) taken from the first few episodes following the "Battlestar Galactica" pilot (which, itself, had been whittled down and released as a feature film...in SENSURROUND, which this sequel apparently did NOT have)!. 2010 $15.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Galactica%202_zpsytxnhili.jpg)

Taken from the 1960s "Tarzan" TV series starring Ron Ely is the poster for "Tarzan's Jungle Rebellion" 2009 $10.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tarzans%20Jungle%20Rebellion_zpsqkcrymxv.jpg)

OMG!!  I have been trying to collect Tarzan posters for years. I recently got a Lex Barker (talking Tarzan @2) poster--and was thrilled. I never thought I'd have a Johnny Weismuller (talking Tarzan #1--the classic Tarzan) poster, but apparently I DO have one. It's a re-release poster of "Tarzan's Desert Mystery" purchased in 2010...for a piddly $36. WHAT!?! There is NO WAY,re-release or not, that I could touch a Weismuller Tarzan poster for that amount today.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tarzans%20Desert%20Mystery%20R46_zpswfpfturf.jpg)

There were a few other posters that showed up as well...nothing really worth noting though (i.e.some old war movie called "Suicide Battalion" $15, "Three Bites of the Apple" $10, "Operation Conspiracy" $15, "Van Nuys Blvd" $10, killer snake movie/ "Willard" ripoff, "Stanley" etc.) and several others I won't even bother listing.

'Three Bites of the Apple' does it for me, as I do like watching 'Swinging Sixties' stuff. Better still, David McCallum wrote and sang the title track and it even mentions Playboy Magazine by name!

I do feel sorry for poor old Roger Moore though. Even I could manage a better likeness than that.

This is great, Go-Go.
I lived in Ticonderoga for 10 years, had my first child there, and still visit friends there often.
As a matter of fact, I just showed this poster to my son and he scolded me for not having one for him.

Fort Ti is one of the greatest forts of its time.
http://www.fortticonderoga.org/ (http://www.fortticonderoga.org/)

Here's an infamous Ticonderoga joke.

A girl from the city fell in love with a young Ticonderogan lad.
One day they decided to go skinny dipping in the Lake.
While disrobing, she noticed a tattoo on his member.
"How cute," she said (noticeably disappointed), "'It spells TINY."
He responded, "No it doesn't. If you play with it a bit, you'll see it reads, 'TICONDEROGA, NY.'
And they lived happily ever after.

Hi there. I've heard a variation on the "tiny" joke before--same punchline though.

It never occurred to me that "Fort Ti" might be a real place. Ha! It's in New York?????? That's not much of a western for you. Ha!  I'm thrilled to have the vintage 3D poster...and for only $15. No way you'd get it for that today. Posters have gotten crazy high in the last few years.

Not that I saw it or have any interest in it (and no idea what I was thinking when I bought them), but here are two different posters for "Tron Legacy":

The recent horror flick (that's not very good) "The Gallows" was filmed entirely around Fresno and the surrounding area. The directors have been promoting it at a local theater since it came out. Yesterday I was at that theater seeing another bad horror flick ("Vatican Tapes"--blah), and when I exited, there were the directors, sitting at a table in front of the actual gallows set piece in the lobby, autographing mini-posters. The film is just about done--it only plays one showing a day at that theater, at 10pm, yet they were there promoting it until it is completely gone. (Don't they have anything else to do?). Anyway, here is my signed mini-poster.

"Adam & Eve: The First Love Story"...Oh my stars! I actually saw this movie. (I was suckered into seeing it under the title "Adam and Eve Vs The Cannibals"! Ha!). It was jaw-droppingly bizarre-O! It was ridiculous---a fake killer bear, blue people, killer pterydactyls, cannibals (for about 5 minutes--that's all!) etc. Hilarious! Not wild about the poster--it's not the cover art for the video--but those are the actors. Guys may note that Eve is showing, uh... her "forbidden fruit". Ladies may take note that Adam may be wearing a loin cloth because he may be too excited to safely fit in a fig leaf. Not a great poster, but had to get something on that doofy, goofy flick.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/italian_1p_adam_and_eve_the_first_love_story_SD02694_C_zpskuxmji2y.jpg)

I'm outta time. I'll get the rest later (there are more than 10 new ones, but I was trying to be brief and squeeze those 10 in before work).

More later...

CHEERS!

Hello Brude/Ted and Rosa. Thanks for visiting. I'm in LA at the moment and on my phone (which I hate responding on).  Glad you like Adama, Rosa. According to the movie, he was born out of a giant cocoon . (Eva was created out of a sand sculpture of a naked woman that Adama made (and he put a lot of detail in the bobs and other areas, which was amazing since he had never seen a woman before.) They are kicked out of the Garden of Eden Indiana Jones style (chased by a hilarious giant boulder rolling after them) and end up in a wasteland and are attacked by pterydactls, which they kill and fashion their first clothing with (since there are no longer convenient bushes and trees to block views of certain body parts, of course).  Then they go on and inexplicably meet lots of other people, blah blah blah. Wonderfully awful/strange/hilarious movie.
Cheers!

I'm back to finish/expand on the post I started a while back. I've been on a vacation I could NOT afford, but...

Speaking of things I can not afford, although I'm still NOT ready to talk about what I bought yet (What the hell was i thinking?), I will say that I am now in such a financial hole i don't even preview auctions any more. They are just too tempting. All of the emails I get about auctions I ignore. I don't dare look or I'll try to buy-buy-BUY more...which i can NOT do. Jeepers!

Anyway, here are some more of the things I was going to share last time...

RED RIDING HOOD:  I hated this flick when I saw it in the theaters. It had so much potential, but it missed the mark, I felt. Why do I have the poster? It (and several other things in today's posting) came in lots I got fairly cheaply. whoopie do.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/red_riding_hood_WC00865_C_zpsoersnbf9.jpg)


RETURN TO NEVERLAND:  I also saw this in the theater--don't remember a thing about it. Bland poster, but again, part of a cheap lot.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/return_to_neverland_WC00925_C_zpseotadrll.jpg)


The recent 3D "Three Musketeers" was a flop-a-roo. I saw it just before it died off entirely (in 2D, alas...). Oddly enough, I liked it. Yes it was mindless, but it was also fun. The poster is worth nothing, but it was also part of the lot...which is probably why I bid anything for it at all.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/three_musketeers_WC00865_C_zpsoimz3aby.jpg)


RAMPAGE: Is this based on the Night Stalker serial killer? I'm not sure what this movie is. It's William Friedkin, but I don't think I've heard of it before. It was in a lot. Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/rampage_WC00859_C_zpsvby8ebuw.jpg)


FUTURE FORCE: I have no idea... LOT poster. Next...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/future_force_WC00859_C_zpsdt8z2obg.jpg)


I've two posters for Disney's non-classic animated flop "ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE" (more trash from the bargain basement lot-o-rama I won):

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/atlantis_the_lost_empire_WC00865_C_zpsfjuu8g0t.jpg)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/atlantis_the_lost_empire_WC00925_C_zpsybtivtez.jpg)


I also got the one sheet for Dario Argento's "FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET". It's one of his giallos, right? I've never seen it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Four%20Flies%20on%20Grey%20Velvet_zpshq2vmyvv.jpg)


ARENA: Another lot poster---looks like cheesy crap-a-rama!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/arena_WC00859_C_zpsmqugp66p.jpg)


Although I already have one, I also scored another copy of John Carpenter's "PRINCE OF DARKNESS" one sheet. WHY? I have no idea. I didn';t even like the movie...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/prince_of_darkness_WC00859_C_zpsikgqkmik.jpg)

That's enough for this post. I hate to post more than 10 posters per post. But I have a lot more junk...er, stuff to share.

CHEERS!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on August 09, 2015, 11:12:43 PM
Not everything I got recently was from a lot that no one else wanted. For this post of 10 posters we'll play a game--"LOT or NOT". I'll post a picture, ta;l about it a little bit and let you guess--was this something I got in a LOT ("LOT") or was this something I bought intentionally ("NOT"). Put on your thinking caps (but really, this will be easier than you think...):

Poster 1: FRAILTY: I dislike Bill Paxton (Ugh...).He is one of my least favorite "actors" (is that what he's doing? "Acting"?). But Matthew McConaughey is intriguing sometimes. I dig horror flicks and the art caught my eye when this first came out. I won't say what I thought of the film (since this is the LOT or NOT game), but I did rush out and see it when it debuted.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/frailty_WC00925_C_zpsisac313u.jpg)

Poster 2: FEAR DOT COM: I like Stephen Dorff (even I find that odd. Ha!). I'm a big horror fan. However, when this came out I completely missed seeing it. It was only on home video that I finally caught it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/fear_dot_com_WC00865_C_zpsp7go7k22.jpg)

Poster 3: "BEWARE THE BLOB": I am certain I already have this one sheet (my other copy has a tear in it) and also the one sheet for it's alternate title, "SON OF BLOB". While not the best sequel ever, Larry Hagman's feature film directorial debut is still a blob film. I will probably never get a one sheet for the original "BLOB" so these will have to do.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Beware%20the%20Blob_zpsvgfvbjqx.jpg)

Poster 4: "THE FINAL CONFLICT": I like horror flicks (how many times have I said that already?). The "OMEN" series is a classic (although each film gets weaker/sillier as the series progresses--but the first was awesome! The remake was totally unnecessary) and I am strangely looking forward to the upcoming DAMIEN TV series based on the movies/books. Although this, the third entry, was rather sedate (and don't even get me started on the TV movie 4th entry--UGH!), I do have it in my DVD collection and have seen it several times.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/final_conflict_WC00859_C_zpsp8atpbt0.jpg)


Poster 5: SOMETHING WILD: I remember this coming out and the talk that it was going to be a cult movie. I saw it (a couple of times) and don't think it was all that interesting. It could have been better...and the talk of it becoming a cult film may have been to booster its box office or explain its lack of box office. Still the poster is kind of charming.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/something_wild_WC00859_C_zpss8mbcg4x.jpg)


Poster 6: MAGIC MIKE XL: I didn't see this and probably won't see this. Is it even still playing? Ha!  Whatever. This is a sequel, right? I'm guessing the XL stands for "extra large" and is not the Roman numeral 40. If there were 40 "Magic Mike" movies, I've really fallen off of the planet.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Magic%20Mike%20XXL%20adv_zps4dpofivc.jpg)


Poster 7: FLUBBER: I confess I never saw FLUBBER (although I did see the ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR and SON OF FLUBBER that its based on). But this is a poster for the late, great Robin Williams. He was a genius (at times. Other times he was just...annoying. And I hated, hated, HATED "Awakenings"!). There won't be any more Williams posters coming around...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/flubber_WC00925_C_zps2khocmjn.jpg)


Poster 8: PRISON: I'm not sure if I ever saw this film or not, but I don't think I've ever seen the poster before. I dig the skull imagery combined with prison motifs. I just wish they had take the title and integrated it mnore, possibly as "teeth" in the skull instead of just being there below the skull. Oh well. No one asked me.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/prison_WC00859_C_zpsymksus6r.jpg)



Poster 9: THE FOURTH KIND--the ultimate exploitation flick (that did not take off). This film tries to one up the found footage genre. By mixing allegedly real "found footage" of an alien invasion of a family with dramatic recreations of said footage. But both the real footage and recreation footage are BOTH fake. And neither are that compelling. Oh well.It was a nice idea--and there were a few lame brains out there who actually believed it. Bravo! Just wish it had been better...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/fourth_kind_WC00865_C_zpsneinafs7.jpg)


Poster 10: THE GRINCH: This is the live version of the animated TV classic starring Jim Carrey and about four times as long as the cartoon version. It was an interesting experiment and I thought it was very good when I first saw it...but it's lost a lot of its charm (for me) since then...even though I have some authentic production-used Grinch mail and the regular one sheet (I think). The advance does have a bit of style about it though... Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/grinch_WC00925_C_zpst2xrwhjw.jpg)

Okay kiddies. Have you figured out which were from a LOT and which were NOT? Let's see...

Poster 1: LOT. (I didn't like the flick, plain and simple)

Poster 2: LOT (I really didn't like the movie. Ha!)

Poster 3: NOT (Yes, even though i already had a copy, I had a good deal on this one and bought it. Hoipefully it's in better shape than the one I already have.)

Poster 4: LOT (I already have THE FINAL CONLICT one sheet.)

Poster 5: LOT (I really didn't like the movie...)

Poster 6: NOT (It was cheap--beefcake and cheesecake posters tend to be worth more 10 years or so down the road. At least that's been my experience. I hope this follows that trend and doesn't tank because of the over saturation of the poster. Hmm.)

Poster 7: LOT (Really? FLUBBER? Ha ha ha ha ha!)

Poster 8:  LOT (I do like the poster though and it was probably one of the factors I bid on this lot to begin with)

Poster 9: LOT (Crappy flick...)

Poster 10: LOT  (I kind of like the simple Santa-suited Grinch hand holding the broken ornament, but it was in the lot)

How did you do? Anyone get 100%? (Oh really, it was not that hard...and all of the ones from the lot were kind of rolled. Easy peasy!)

I'm in a grumpy mood. Never mind. More posters to share--including those I dread talking about,

Stay tuned.

I'm back...with everything else I'll have for a long, long, l-o-n-g time, with the exception of the three I still can't talk about yet.

First off...something I have no idea why I bought it (and I certainly have no memory of even buying it...but it's here), THE SPECTRE OF EDGAR ALLAN POE. I know NOTHING about this movie and the poster make it look like low budget crap. Oh well. (And yes, I am still in a grumpy mood...)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/spectre_of_edgar_allan_poe_SD01936_C_zpshs8yttmz.jpg)


Finally mine--after a zillion years of hunting for one--is William Castle's gimmick-a-go-go flick-a-rama classic, "THE TINGLER"! Hot diggity. I have ALL of Castle's horror one sheets now...with the exception of one (that is beyond expensive and I'll never own it). That is okay--at least I got this one. Yippie!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Tingler_zps11kppbjy.jpg)


HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIANS is not a good flick. Hmm. However, I will try to snag any old HERCULES title that comes my way. Overall, I dig those old, cheesy flicks (the ones involving magic and or monsters are the best/worst. The others, like this one, tend to be dull...). I am glad I got it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/hercules_against_the_barbarian_SD01632_T_zpsavyeiayt.jpg)


Dario Argento's OPERA. This is the Italian poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Opera%20Italian_zpshpo73yda.jpg)



Another MAGIC MIKE 2 poster...this is an advance. Ha!  i got this for $2. Before the film came out they were $15 or $20. Trash now, but in a few years...(hopefully).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Magic%20Mike%20XXL%20adv%20Channing_zpswu5o7gwu.jpg)


Didn't I just buy one of these not too long ago?  UGH!  It's ANOTHER copy of the great western/horror double feature, BILLY THE KID VS DRACULA and JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER!  Hopefully this is a better copy than the one I already have...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Billy%20the%20kid%20dracula%20Jessee%20James%20Frankensteins%20daughter_zpskp5fc7fa.jpg)


The final one for tonight (leaving just three more that I'm still NOT ready to discuss for another time) is the Italian poster for the "JAWS" ripoff, "BARRACUDA"---which is slightly more interesting than the US one sheet.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Barracuda%20Italian_zpsa2ecky8f.jpg)


Okay--go back and do something more interesting than look at my pathetic posters. UGH!  i am in such a dumpy mood...

Cha-cha-cha!

Also like (amongst others) OPERA and PRISON.
I also have a copy of PRISON, but mine (like others I've seen) has a white border.
Like these:

http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/film_title/PRISON%2520%2528%252788%2529/country/U.S./archive.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/film_title/PRISON%2520%2528%252788%2529/country/U.S./archive.html)

Yours is the first full-bleed copy I've seen.
I don't doubt its authenticity, especially since it appears machine-folded. Probably just a different print run.
I haven't seen PRISON in years, but I did like it a lot.

Hi Brude,

Thanks for the info on the PRISON poster. Interesting. I had never seen the poster,so had no idea there were variants to it (border vs none). Mine was actually from a lot from emovieposter, so i don't doubt its authenticity either. There were other posters I got in those lots I did NOT even bother sharing. Most of those in the lot(s?) were lackluster as it is--but the others I got, complete and total coma-inducing snore-a-rama!

Crazy Vick!

How are you? I'm in a poopy mood for more than just my poster/financial woes. And no, buying a poster is NOT an option. It really, REALLY isn't. I probably will not buy for a long, LONG time. I know I said that before...but that was after a big expense/burn. That last auction (I haven't talked about yet) caused even more of a financial fiasco for me...WORSE than the WHITE SLAVES thing and I really have learned my lesson. I don't even read my auction emails anymore or peruse eBay...too dangerous. Just say no...at least until I can tread water again.

CHEERS!

Hi Neo. I'm glad you like the BARRACUDA poster. I did too when I first bought...but am now second guessing myself about it. I already have the US one sheet, and while the Italian art is a tad more interesting  than the US poster, it's not THAT interesting/different. It's nice but I did not need it. Hmm.

Jedgerley, I almost missed your note. Sorry. I'm not at home now so I'll have to delay posting about those 3 posters. They're not a big deal...nothing you haven't seen before. One I really wanted (it was at the top of my bucket list, or as I really call it, my Possible Dreams list, meaning that they are not out of my price range entirely unlike my IMPOSSIBLE  DREAMS list which would be  original release DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN,  etc. No way I'll ever afford those...).

(Continued) Dang I hate posting from my phone...ugh. Anyway the one was from my "Possible Dreams" list.  I wanted it badly, but not for the price I got it at. The 2nd one was also super high and I don't know why I bought it....not that high on my list. Certainly not as high as I paid for it. In my auction panic I also bought another pricey (but not as much as the other two) poster that I had JUST PURCHASED days earlier elsewhere. WTF? Ugh. The costs of those 3...2 of which I didn't really want or need...not only killed me financially but also stopped me from getting other posters in the auction that I would have much rather had. Dang it all... Stay tuned. I'll share in a while. Cheers!

Sorry to hear your auction woes, Go-Go.

Maybe its time to to start selling off duplicates and undesirables?

That way you refine your collection and give yourself some breathing room.

Yes. That is a good idea. However, I am not in a house again  yet. Everything I own is still crammed into a tiny space. I don't even know where all of my posters are or what exactly I have. But I have other junk, er... objects d'art I need to get rid of. It will happen...I just need to find the time. Thanks. Cheers!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on August 11, 2015, 01:11:32 AM
Okay...I don't know what the hell I've been stalling for, but here is the story of those last three posters...that has stopped me COLD from bidding (or even looking) on other posters.

(To skip the sob story, skip down to the row of these: ******)

I have been struggling to pay off financial aid loans and credit card debt I accrued while going to nursing school and not working (I had been a writer for the newspaper, but they would not let me work part time. I couldn't handle full time and school so...). The student loans are slowly, slowly shrinking. The credit card debt I actually was able to pay off a big chunk of when I refinanced one of my houses last November.

Once I joined the forum (last January), I learned about a few other options out there of where to acquire posters and was feeling a bit more confidant financially. I started buying some of the things I had only dreamed about before, but still kept buying the smaller things as well. More than once I found myself having to charge my orders when I'd get carried away. A little here, a little there. Other expenses came up--trips (New Orleans for my 50th birthday in April, Maui coming up at the end of September, and I just had a back-to-back trip to Los Angeles and the Bay Area). Flights, hotels, and car rental had to be paid for. All charged. And then one of my houses became vacant (and is still vacant while I clean/fix it up), requiring me to somehow pay the mortgage on it. Yikes!

Then came the whole pursuit of the original OLGA film, WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN. I had to have it. I spent hundreds ($302) on one trimmed copy...and then, at another auction, got an untrimmed one (along with HG Lewis's 2000 MANIACS one sheet--not in the best condition) for a grand total of $705 (that's with buyer's premium, tax, shipping and the credit card fee, and whatever else was tacked on). I had already been spending some bigger dollars than I am used to spending on other posters here and there...but the $705 was staggering to me. I was gonna NOT buy anything else...but did anyway, especially when I saw the big summer auction at Heritage. Oh my stars!  There were so many, many things I wanted/needed that were on my "Possible Dreams" list, including the poster that was at the very top of the list, the 1956 re-release of "King Kong". There were several other posters in my top ten list as well. I was beyond excited, but already panicked about my re-escalating debt.

The '56 "King Kong" was my ultimate prize and I focused on that most of all. Sure, I'd prefer a 1933 original; release one sheet, but that will never happen. The '56 was the re-release poster I liked 2nd best. The art had been used before, but the coloring of the '56 version interested me more than the other versions. I had seen one a few years earlier on eBay that was priced about $200 and it languished there for weeks--no takers. O' if only I had had the money back then...  But I was determined to get this one.

And I did---spending way,way, WAY TOO MUCH money in the process. Oh crap-a-rama! With buyer's premium, I paid $956 for it. WTF!?! It killed me to pay that much for it, especially when I remembered seeing it for only $200 not that long ago.

Anyway, that stressful/fierce bidding competition for KONG rattled me. I was totally unhinged by it. I was NOT letting KONG get away from me and the next thing that had been on my long list of posters to buy was also not going to get away from me...which is how I paid (with BP) a staggering $836 for Doris Wishman's "NUDE ON THE MOON". Holy F&#@!!!

I was punched in the gut after that. Most of the other things I wanted--things from my top ten--were scheduled for the 2nd day of auction. NUDE ON THE MOON had NOT been one of those. NOTM would normally have been something I'd have let pass by...but I did not have my wits about me after the KONG war. UGH! And with nearly $2000 (!!) already spent, I wasn't going to be able to buy anything the next day probably. Why, o' why had I bought NOTM? Waaaagh!

The next day came and I tried to have a level head. As soon as the bidding started and something I hadn't had on the list of things I was going to bid on (I'll tell you why it wasn't on my list in a moment) came up, I freaked out and went into bidding frenzy again--and got it. It was THE GREEN SLIME for $167.30 (with BP). Only after I won--actually, during the bidding phase when I was the high bidder, did it occur to me that the reason it was not on my written list to bid on was because I had just won one less than a week earlier! D'oh! And the auction clock counted down, no one had any last bids against me,and it was mine. ARGH!

Other things I really wanted (including that poster that had been No. 2 on my Possible Dream list) came up. I bid, but had to stop...I was usually the 2nd place bidder on a lot of those posters---but I just had to let them go, one by one...  UGH!  All because I made two stupid purchases and spent way too much for the third. DANG!

The invoice was $2151.08....eeek! The highest invoice before that had been in May, for $1,019.19...but I had won 7 posters (instead of 3) then, including some real beauties. But I was now truly, TRULY maxed out. In fact, while I was in Los Angeles (on a trip scheduled/paid for before my house became vacant and before the big auction) I realized I needed a few hundred bucks in CASH for an event I was going to...and I had completely forgotten to get some before leaving. Not having any reserves to pull from in my regular account, I thought I'd try to get a cash advance from one of my credit cards. I went to the bank the card was issued from, but didn't know my pin number since I never get cash advances. They called and the people at the credit card line said i was okay to get the money out--but for whatever reason, the transaction kept getting declined...even with the credit card people still on the phone line talking to the bank people. My only option was to open an account there and get a personal loan...the minimum loan offered was $2000 at a crazy interest rate---but I had no choice. UGH!

I can laugh about the loan now--but at the time I was just soooooo upset with myself for allowing myself to get so poster crazy and charging up all the debt I had gotten OFF of my cards. Dang!  I realize the money I spent on those posters may not be a big deal to some of you out there--but to me, it was a fortune. KONG is now the most expensive poster I've ever purchased with NUDES ON THE MOON in 2nd place. The previous most expensive had been an original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD a few years ago for $650 or so. Even THAT was a fortune to me. OUCH! I have NO ONE to blame but myself...

******

Anyway, here are the 3 posters that did me in...

Ugh.
I can feel your pain.

Every day we are inundated with auction ads, watch-list alerts and internet images of items that we MUST have.
Once connected, we are like kids in a candy shop.
I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say that a week doesn't pass when the temptation to blow the budget is almost unbearable.

But restraint and patience always seems to pay off.
Just when we seem to give up on certain items that are just too expensive, wham! -- one appears within our budget.

But if temptation starts winning, refer to Kenny Rogers.

It's gonna be a long while until I'm back in the poster game. But that's okay.

Thanks for sharing.  I knew you had a gaping wound already from your White Slaves adventure but now I get the whole cold turkey thing.  Its a good plan.  God i hate Heritage, and buyer's premiums, and taxes, and shipping charages and brokerage fees, etc.

For what its worth those are fantastic posters and that KING KONG is AWESOME.  Maybe what you need is to open a tube or unwrap some frames and get reacquainted with some old friends... that always helps me. 

Of course there's always Maui coming up in September... ;)

Congratulations MAGG! I've been wishing to get a nude on the moon into my collection for quite a while now. Also the US green slime... The tentacle is a bit more risquè than in the Italian version which I would have preferred normally. The Kong looks great too... You are really getting some great stuff now, some very desirable pieces thumbsup.gif. I reckon a few highly desirable ones are better than heaps of undesirables, good on ya.

You have a fantastic trio, wonderful posters. This hobby can eat your money away, but boy, it also gives you some of the best posters out there. I am craving a Kong too, very happy you´ve found yours.

Enjoy it!!!!

Oh my stars! Lots of callers came to visit.

Vick! Hi there. Instead of opening boxes or tubes and looking at "old friends", I need to have a HOUSE with WALLS again so i can hang them up and enjoy them. Someday...  Maui will be fun. I'm a tag-a-long on this trip. I paid airfare for myself and a friend and will need to pitch in for food, drinks, etc., but the condo they are renting is NOT going to be my responsibility. Thank goodness. I just can NOT afford this trip...but have the tickets and I may never get another chance to go to Maui (this is my first time...). I'm looking forward to it, but not really. Iam just sooooo stressed about money right now to even think of anything else.

50s/Steve Thanks for the comments on my posters. KONG was really all I needed out of the trio (I wanted NUDE ON THE MOON, but not at that price. Yowza!). Glad you like them.

Jeff/erik1925. Are you back? I hope you had a nice trip (or are STILL having a nice trip). Me, on a roll? Possibly, but it has come to a screeching halt. Glad you like the costly trio as well.

Rosa, good luck with your KONG hunt...and may yours be not nearly as expensive (and in better shape. I think mine was graded too high, honestly. It's still nice though, but...).

Finally, as I was going through mail yesterday (I had it held while I was on my trip. It all arrived yesterday), I opened a box of posters that I had completely forgotten about (so dazed was I by the fallout from the Heritage auctions...). The day of the Heritage auctions, another poster auction was closing. I had put in some snipes for things and promptly forgotten about them. I "won" 3 of them--and apparently paid for them as well--but have zero memory of it all. Ha! Anyway--here are the three bonus posters I had forgotten I had won. Again, these are NOT "new" posters since the Heritage fiasco. These are same day auctions I bid on before Heritage wiped me out.  Enjoy or don't. Cheers...

The least exciting is "The Tinder Box"--a kiddie matinee poster from Childhood Productions (my favorite kiddie matinee company. They had the best posters) presented in Storybook Color!  I probably already had this poster, but wasn't sure.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tinderbox_zpscmlqhu8o.jpg)


Next,oh my stars...it's another vintage 1950s 3D poster!  This one is INFERNO (which was recently released on 3D blu ray. I bought a copy, but don't have a 3D blu ray player or a 3D tv yet. Ha!). The poster is not in as good of shape as the photo would have you believe, but it's still presentable and I am thrilled. I have so few 3D posters from the 50s.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Inferno%203D_zpsxektnzve.jpg)


The last is the ecological horror flick "FROGS" from the early 70s (starring Ray Milland and a very young Sam Elliot and Joan Van Ark). There are no giant frogs in the movie, but you gotta dig the frog with the arm hanging out of its mouth. Zowie! I've wanted a "FROGS" for years. Apparently the Heritage auction diverted everyone away from this auction and "FROGS" (and the other two) became mine.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Frogs_zpsswv1hfhs.jpg)

And that's it. NOTHING else to share now...and probably nothing else to share for a long, LONG time to come.

I'll see you all around.

CHEERS!

Brude/Ted, hi there!  I'm glad you like my posters. I'm happy-ish with them (but the sting from the others kind of clouds the joy of having them). It is amazing though how much I paid for the Heritage three ...and how little (comparatively) I paid for these forgotten three.

Oh well. I'll be saving my pennies now--to pay off loads and loads of debt.

I'll be back in the game eventually though.  :-)

Have a groovy day!

Jeff, as I said before. The roll came to a screeching halt the day I "O.D.ed" on the big Heritage summer auction. I'm out of the running for a long while to come... I have not bought a poster since then (SHOCKING, I know...).

Hi Shawn, and yes, I am going to need all the luck to find my KK. Not sure how you found yours (what made you go for that version- it is a fab poster!!!).  It has been quite a search to find ''my'' Kong poster. The one that most speaks to me.  I had several options, after a long search I finally know now for sure which one I want and will go for.  Watch this space! :P ;) :)

In the meantime, I will just admire yours..! :)

OOoooo... I am super duper excited for you. Fingers and toes crossed that you get it.

How did I decide which KONG was right for me? I just looked at what was out there and what was available. The versions from 1933 were out of my league. There were some foreign ones (there are some Italian re-releases that are gorgeous). Back in the day, when foreign posters were a dime a dozen, I had a chance at getting them. Stupidly at the time I was sticking with just US posters --they'd all fit the standard frame size-- so i passed. Now that I've come to my senses and changed my tune about foreign posters, those are sky high. The 1956 art had been used before, but the coloration on the 56 poster really worked. It seemed the most "authentic" of all of them out, aside from the 1933 originals--if that makes any sense. Now that I have it though, I am ever so anxious to see how YOUR quest goes and which one you eventually end up with. GOOD LUCK!!!

Again, your KONG is a great poster. Happy that you snagged it!

Thank you, Jeff. I am pleased you dig my purchase.

UGH. It has been 2 weeks plus) since i purchased a poster...or even contemplated buying one. I'm having withdrawals, but I just can NOT afford to buy anything. Period.

So, what I thought I would do---to kind of feel somewhat in the loop still---is repost those posters I bought since the beginning of 2015 that are on that other website (which I've now abandoned) that I got BEFORE joining allposter... 

ARGH! It will have to wait. For some reason Photobucket is NOT uploading my images today. GRRR.

Stay tuned. I'll try it again later.

OOoo!  Hey Gingerman--I got Photobucket to work (what was up with that glitch? Grr.).  Try it now!!!  Also thanks for visiting my page. i'm glad you like some of my stuff. i dig yours as well.

Let me try this again...

Okay, these are NOT "new" posters. These are posters I already own. I am just trying to move all of the images from the one page I had on that other website I started to this one. These are all  things I bought in 2015, but before I joined allposterforum. Here we go--first batch:

First, I am most thrilled with this poster acquisition from earlier this year---and it is 78 years old! It's Universal's "The Man Who Cried Wolf"! In 1937, Universal already had "Dracula" (1931), "Frankenstein" (1931), "The Mummy" (1932) and "The Invisible Man" (1933) under its belt. "The Wolfman" wouldn't show up until 1941, but it was still a time when the studio, which was doing very well with horror thrillers (and their sequels), was at its peak. "The Man Who Cried Wolf" is a lesser mystery/thriller (but hello? Do you think I'll ever be able to afford one of the better known film's posters? NOT!). It's just beautiful! Look at the colors and that cool old-style lettering of the title. I just love this and am so lucky to get it!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Man%20Who%20Cried%20Wolf_zpsbybdikxp.jpg)


Speaking of Universal, at the beginning of the year I also got the re-release poster for "The Invisible Woman". It's not much of a poster--the folds are a bit rough and there is staining in the left border (something I'd usually avoid buying, but this title at the price I got it at...I turned a blind eye to the problem)---but it IS for a film in the classic Universal "Invisible" series.

Realart was the company that re-released all of the old Universal horror flicks from the late 40s through the 60s. The posters for the Realart releases, while cheaper than the original posters from the original releases, are still very expensive (usually in the thousands for top titles). This title is not a top title--and, as I said, the art work isn't the best. But... I couldn't let it slip by!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Invisible%20Woman_zpsworuapm9.jpg)


A far-cry from the Universal epics of yesteryear, "The Amazing Transplant" is an "adults only" (Gasp! There was--NUDITY in it. Oh my STARS!) late 60s piece o' trash by cult filmmaker Doris ("Nudes on the Moon", "Bad Girls Go To Hell", "Deadly Weapons" ) Wishman. If you've never seen a Wishman movie, you have no idea how deliriously awful-yet-wonderful they can be! "Amazing Transplant" was my introduction to Wishman's work and, as crappy bad as it is, i love it! See the camera focus on lamps, ashtrays, paintings---anything but the actors. Why? Because all of her dialogue is looped in AFTERWARDS. By not showing the actors when they are speaking, it makes it easier to dub the voices in later. How this trash was ever released is beyond me. However,I am floored to have finally gotten a copy of this rare poster!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Amazing%20Transplant_zpsibpw74dk.jpg)


If you have ever flipped through the pages of my collection thread (instead of skipping right to the most recent entries), you'll have noted that I love the old sword & sandal/peplum movies of the 50s/60s, especially the ones that featured monsters or magic. I refer to them simply as "Hercules movies"--even though the character Hercules was only in a handful of them. Hercules is nowhere to be seen in "Atlas", B-movie legend Roger Corman's entry into the muscle man movie craze of the period. Michael Forest, who played "Atlas" also played Greek god Apollo in an original Star Trek episode.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Atlas_zpscceblkfz.jpg)


H.G. Lewis was often referred to as the "Godfather of Gore". Back before movies like "Friday the 13th" or "Dawn of the Dead" made blood and gore so popular in horror movies, Lewis was utilizing it in a string of drive in flicks from the mid-60s through the early 70s. Films like "Blood Feast", "The Gore-Gore Girls", "The Wizard of Gore", "The Gruesome Twosome", "2000 Maniacs", "Color Me Blood Red", etc showed blood and entrails splattered across the screen--in a way that had never been so shockingly shown before.

Not all of his movies are horror/gore flicks. This poster is for his 60s swingers in suburbia epic, "Suburban Roulette" (1968). Tame by today's standards (and available in its entirety on YouTube. Ha!), this is grindhouse fare all of the way. While I'll always prefer a poster for one of Lewis' horror flicks, I'm thrilled to get any paper from any of his films...including this one.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Suburban%20Roulette_zpsfxfg09wq.jpg)


"Eliminators" was one of the last low-budget drive-in/grindhouse-type of movies to be shown in theaters during the VHS era, when all of the product of that caliber started making the shift to going "straight to video". Essentially a cheesy sci-fi flick wanting to rip-off the "Terminator" franchise (the similar title and the half man/ half machine "Mandroid" character, front and center on the poster). What fun! (And darn it...didn't I just buy another copy of this not too long ago? ARGH!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Eliminators_zpszgzcplw1.jpg)


I should probably post something more recent. Hmmm. "Annabelle"--the horror spinoff from "The Conjuring"--is another poster I got at the beginning of the year (January 1st, i think, actually). I wasn't wild about the movie--but the doll is creepy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Annabelle_zpsmrb149ml.jpg)


I also really dig the quasi-3D artwork for the recent "Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters". This is the international poster art--much more in-your-face interesting than the US version (look it up).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hansel%20Gretel%20witch%20hunters%203D%20international_zpsscfyhnds.jpg)


I have no idea what this movie is about (or why the poster has been hard to get--I was always being outbid on it over the years), but here is the poster for "I Married A Woman", the 1958 flick starring George Gobel and Diana Dors (she was Britain's answer to Marilyn Monroe). I don't understand the significance of the title--but it's kind of campy and the artwork is fun. Zowie! It's also my first Diana Dors poster (Now if only I could score a poster with the REAL Marilyn Monroe! Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/I%20married%20a%20woman_zpstqbueiuu.jpg)


My final poster for this quasi-installment is an insert poster (a long, narrow poster--used until about the mid-80s). I've never been a fan of inserts (I prefer the full experience of the regular one-sheet movie poster), but this one was in great condition and for a fun title (never seen the movie). The movie was originally called "Five Minutes To Live", but this is it under it's wonderfully exploitative re-release title "Door To Door Maniac"! What's even better about this title is that the maniac of the re-title is played by country music legend Johnny Cash! Ha! His partner in crime is played by Vic Tayback (Mel from the old "Alice" TV series). Ron ("Happy Days", "Andy Griffith Show", "American Graffiti" )Howard is also in the film (as a little kid).

Hi Brude/Ted. They were here: http://forums.fanbolt.com/topic/61/movie-poster-collectors-thread/

There had been a longer, earlier thread but it was deleted when the site tried to revamp itself (which did not work). I started that thread at the beginning of January...about a month or so before I moved over here. I was posting to both for a while before I gave up on the other one (why post when no one else was?). I'll move all of the posters that I had slapped up over there over here eventually. This was just the first batch...and I totally love "The Man Who Cried Wolf" as well. WOW! I lucked out there, if I do say so myself...

Thanks for visiting. It's always a pleasure having you pop by.

CHEERS!

I'm back...with another batch of old (NOT "new purchases") stuff I am transferring over to All Poster Forum I had posted elsewhere. This is stuff I got in 2015 but from BEFORE starting my page here.

CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS:

One of my long-time quests paid off in January with the acquisition of the "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" poster. I love early zombie posters (between "Night of the Living Dead" and the glut in the early 80s just after "Zombie") and I've wanted this poster for ages. However, when I finally got it, I discovered it was a little more damaged and stained than I'd anticipated (Not nearly as nice as the one shown---this must be an image pulled from elsewhere on the 'net). It will do...maybe...but the hunt is still on (just in case).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Children%20Shouldnt_zpsykxl62jl.jpg)


ASTEROID ADVENTURE:

"Asteroid Adventure" is apparently an IMAX Simulation ride film. I was surprised to stumble upon a poster for it. I've seen IMAX before but never an Imax Simulator. I'm not even sure this counts as a "movie poster" although in a simulator, you are essentially watching a "movie" but in a moving theater. Interesting.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Asteroid%20Adventure_zpski8vdosr.jpg)


THE BRIDES OF FU MANCHU:

"The Bride of Fu Manchu" is the 2nd (of 5) Fu Manchu movies to star Christopher Lee in the 60s. I had heard about the Fu Manchu movies for years. They never really interested me, but last year I finally decided to track them down and found they did not live up to their reputation. Oh well. I've decided to track down the posters anyway. (Why not?)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Brides%20Fu%20Manchu_zpsgbppvubp.jpg)


BY LOVE POSSESSED:

"By Love Possessed" is an old Lana Turner movie. No one remembers Lana Turner today (Who?), but she was a screen sex siren before Marilyn Monroe. She is the one supposedly discovered in Schwab's Drug Store in Hollywood (a Hollywood myth). This is one of her later films when she was nearing (gasp!) middle age. Aside from "Peyton Place" it's the only Lana Turner poster I have.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/By%20Love%20Possessed_zpsofsheubw.jpg)



CAT O' NINE TAILS:

"Cat O'Nine Tails" is an early Dario Argento flick made before his classic "Susperia" (which I also have). It is a giallo flick (kind of like a bizarre murder mystery with graphic murders) and features American stars James Franciscus and Karl Malden. Argento is collectible. Now if I can just get a copy of.... well, his OTHER posters. Dang!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cat%20O%20nine%20Tails_zpsqco1myv7.jpg)


THE INCREDIBLE TORTURE SHOW:

"The Incredible Torture Show"?? What's that? Never heard of it? "The Incredible Torture Show" was the original title that is now better known under it's super exploitative title "Bloodsucking Freaks", a nasty little sick-o-rama low budget horror flick. Has that fallen off the radar of horror/exploitation fans? I thought it had a cult following, so when this poster (which I already have a copy of) became available for very little, I scooped it up as an investment. I have a "Bloodsucking Freaks" poster as well, but... Apparently I chose unwisely. These appear to be a dime a dozen. I've seen lots of copies of this sold in lots. UGH! OH well...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Incredible%20Torture%20Show%20v_zpsohqtucvg.jpg)


THE MASTER SUSPENSE THRILL SHOW COMBO:

I picked up this cool double-bill poster for "The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus" and "The Manster" at the beginning of the year. Cool stuff...or so I thought. Not long after buying this, I discovered there was a full color version of this and bought that one too. UGH!  Oh well...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Master%20Suspense_zpsll1nndbo.jpg)



DEATHSTALKER II:

Yes, this is a poster for a video release (VHS videocassette! Zowie! Ha!). I had gotten the original theatrical poster for the first "Deathstalker". I realized if I wanted the other posters for the other three films in the series (a series I have never seen as of yet), I would have to buy video posters because they were not released theatrically. I got Parts 3 and 4. I finally scored "Deathstalker 2" earlier this year. I can't believe it took so long to track down since it is the least interesting of the four. Oh well.I am thrilled to finally have it. However, a few weeks back i could have sworn i saw a THEATRICAL version of this same poster. HUH?  Did it play theatrically? Is there a theatrical one sheet? If so, I'm on the hunt once again...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Deathstalker%202_zpsczypgebj.jpg)



Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND:

Tim Burton's "Alice In Wonderland" was a huge, HUGE hit. I didn't really like it. Like most of Burton's films (i.e. "Planet of the Apes", "Mars Attacks", "Dark Shadows",etc.), it was incredible visually, but I was b-o-r-e-d. The poster does carry the incredible visuals though... I must have gotten this because it was cheap, er...inexpensive. I already had the Johnny Depp / Mad Hatter lenticular. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Burtons%20Alice%20In%20Wonderland_zpsrl1bdid5.jpg)


THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN:

Another long-sought poster I scored earlier this year is for the Don Knotts comedy, "The Ghost and MR. Chicken". I saw this movie at a kiddie matinee years ago and thought it was awesome. Saw it years later, and it didn't hold up. But it has it's moments and for what it is, it's cute. This is the hardest to find poster of all of the Don Knotts films.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ghost%20and%20Mr%20Chicken_zpstclfdhak.jpg)

I'll have a few more blasts from the not-so-distant past later. And now, it's off to bed. I need to get up at 5 a.m. tomorrow so i can work my 12 hour day (4 in a row---ugh!) to pay off my bills...so I can buy MORE POSTERS!  ARGH!

CHEERS!

good stuff, Children Shouldn't play with Dead things is terrific, i sadly sold a rolled NM copy of the advance OS years ago. I should have kept it (and should get one of these for my Ted V Mikels collection really. Its a sore point I guess as what he did to the movie is not looked upon fondly I suppose.


Incredible torture show, yeah, thats a funny one, but hold onto it, and id grab them while cheap, they wont be cheap forever, you'll make a buck.

I remember as a kid renting Blood Sucking freaks, the video store had two copies, with different covers, one looked like a completely different film, so i thought it was and rented both at the same time, no it was same movie (this is before internet of course so we flew by the seat of our pants with this stuff). Still I watched it twice that weekend anyway, haha.

Don't you hate that...selling things and regretting it later? (I sold, among other things, a HALLOWEEN with the blue/green ratings box, GIGANTIS the Fire Monster--aka Godzilla 2, and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT.) UGH! A NM advance copy? What was that like? Same art or different? And what does CSPWDT have to do with Mikels? Zowie! I never realized until now he was involved with it. I always heard Alan Ormsby and Bob Clark. I completely missed the Mikels was a producer. Ha!

How funny ---or not--that you rented two of the same movie the same weekend. And watched them both!

Okay--time to get ready for work. Blah.

I like that Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things poster a lot.
Good score.
I have the teaser like this one that sold at Bruce's http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/6119996.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/6119996.html)

Ari's post prompted me to search for a pic and I found this:

I was unaware that these existed. Is this what you had, Ari?

I need to get off my lazy ass and take more pics...

Ted, thanks a lot for looking those up.  I didn't have time to do so myself before work this morning  (I'm on my exciting 30 minute lunch break now. Whoo...). Looks cool. Maybe I need to add one of those to my evergrowing list.

Yep, that's what I had, and despite being B/W it's really a nice poster, maybe better without colour.glad you have one Ted.

Regarding Ted Mikels, he was called in after the film had been finished to rework it to make saleable, by which some gore was edited out, making it PG, which seems now a shame, perhaps it wouldn't have been released then as was, guess we will never know.

He edited the gore OUT? Waaagh!  I wish there was an UNCUT version out there. Oh well. The posters (advance and release versions) are cool. Thanks for alerting me to the fact there even is an advance.

I'm going to quickly try to post more posters from 2015 I got BEFORE starting this page on ALL POSTER FORUM. These are NOT new purchases. I have NOT bought a poster in weeks...  UGH!  So sad...  Anyway, here's the latest "old" batch:

SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT:

This was kind of a big coup for me. It is the incredibly hard to get original release poster for "Silent Night Deadly Night"! The movie is trash (really...sorry!), but love the graphics of a killer Santa popping down a chimney with an axe! Fabulous! And MINE--finally! Guess what I'll be hanging in my living room (if I ever get out of my storage shed of an apartment, that is) next holiday season... Ho ho ho!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Silent%20Night%20Deadly%20%20%20Night_zps1r1rblsv.jpg)


AFTER DARK HORRORFEST 2007 / 8 FILMS TO DIE FOR:

The After Dark Horrorfest / 8 Films To Die For mini-film festival (I've caught a few of the films in theaters--most on video) actually has one sheets. Who knew? This is for the 2007 event. Are they still doing this? I have not noticed them in a while. Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/After%20Dark%202007_zpsdsfmf239.jpg)


THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO:

I already have a copy of this poster---but this one was cheap and I posted it because most people today have no idea there was a silly (and yawn-inducing) little parody called "The Erotic Adventures of Pinocchio". ("It's Not His Nose That Grows!") It sounds better than it is. Snore. And actually, the title on the poster ("Erotic Adventures Of...") is better than the on-screen title, which is just "Pinocchio". Double snore. Dyanne Thorne of the "Ilsa"movies plays the Blue Fairy. The poster is the best thing about it--and that really isn't even saying very much...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Erotic%20Pinnochio_zpsci65zk96.jpg)


CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND:

Another long-sought poster, Steven Speilberg's follow-up to "Jaws", was 1977's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". I loved this movie as a kid. Now, it's kind of s-l-o-w (maybe because I've seen it and know what's coming?). But it is a classic of it's kind.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Close%20Encounters%203rd%20Kind_zpsxjt9zzui.jpg)


WITCHCRAFT '70:

"Witchcraft '70" is a moldy oldie,obscure-o documentary thang from 1970 (duh). I've seen the poster go for a lot and I have seen it sell for very little (like this one did). The poster is 45 years old and kind of cool with the scantily clad woman kissing a skull and the wording shouting out all of the shocking acts on display in the movie. I have actually seen this turd. It's pretty lame, but...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Witchcraft%2070_zpsod8xhx21.jpg)


PLANES - FIRE AND RESCUE:

"Planes 2"--I've actually never seen the "Planes"movies...or the "Cars" movies they are spun off from. But the poster is kinda cool, it was a popular flick and it's a Disney title. Hopefully it will rise in value. I'm NOT holding my breath though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Planes%202_zpsepfvyewe.jpg)


THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA - THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE:

I never saw any of the "Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" movies, but I couldn't resist this lenticular (has that cool 3D effect) poster for the first film when I saw it "on sale". SOLD! This photo does NOT do it justice.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Narnia%20lenticular_zpsm3obul8v.jpg)


HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS:

Forget the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp hunk of junk from a few years back, this is the original "House of Dark Shadows", retelling the original Barnabas Collins story from the classic soap opera "Dark Shadows" with the original "Dark Shadows" actors! I've been looking for a decent copy for years! Got one!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/House%20of%20Dark%20%20Shadows%20one%20sheet_zps05voorom.jpg)


CLAWS:

"CLAWS"is a pretty rare poster and the movie is also hard to find. The year before this was made,a killer bear movie called "Grizzly" was released. This was a ripoff of "Grizzly" (which was itself a ripoff of "Jaws" but set on land). The reason "CLAWS" is so hard to find is because it was released internationally as "Grizzly 2"--even though it was NOT an authorized sequel. (There actually is a sequel to "Grizzly" that was filmed and never released. Look up "Grizzly 2: The Concert" on YouTube--the work print is there and you'll be amazed by the stars that were in it...). Blah blah blah...I'm thrilled to get this--and it was CHEAP!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/CLAWS_zpsyxnhkmx4.jpg)


AMERICAN PSYCHO:


"American Psycho" starring Christian Bale and based on the Brett Easton Ellis novel is a cult hit. The poster is often pricey and hard to find. I got it at a surprisingly reasonable price! Yahoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/American%20Psycho_zpshqw746b8.jpg)


And now, off to bed. I gotta get to work bright and early. UGH!

Hey Gingerman. Thanks for the kind words about my posters. I'm at work (day 4 of a 4 day assignment. ..12 hour shifts) and I'm on my 30 minute lunch break on my phone.

Good morning (for another 5 minutes it is, at least). I finally have a day off and I got to sleep in. Time for another blast from the recent past--MORE posts from that other site of things purchased this year before I started this page on ALL POSTER FORUM!


YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN:

Yes, everyone knows (and apparently wants) this poster. I've been trying to snag one for years and years. In January, I finally got one. Yahoo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Young%20Frankenstein_zpspf3z17kh.jpg)



DR. SHAGETZ:

"Dr.Shagetz"? I've never heard of it. Must have been a big hit in the 70s....NOT. Still the poster was just interesting enough (and cheap enough) to buy. The picture shown is a pic taken from the internet. I'm not sure why it's not a picture of my actual item. Anyway,I looked up this history of this flick and found this: http://horrorpedia.com/2012/10/10/evil-town/ It kind of makes me curious to see the original, uncut version now...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dr%20Shagetz_zpsswv7dxb4.jpg)


SOMETHING WEIRD:

I scored another HG Lewis poster earlier this year. "Something Weird" is an LSD-themed movie and the namesake of the video company that releases lost old trashy movies (like "Something Weird"! Ha!). I saw this years ago (80s vhs, of course) and it was...crap. But, it's HG Lewis and Something Weird Video (a company I bought from frequently in the VHS days and early in the DVD days before they started going cheapy DVD-r) totally uses the image for its logo. Why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Something%20Weird_zpsc1h3m0kz.jpg)


MACUMBA LOVE:

"Macumba Love"---never seen the flick,but have often seen the poster and wondered about it. It's mine now. I Macumba Love it. Ha! (Well, I don't "love"i it. I do like it though. I wish it was the full color version...but there is something creepy about this quasi-negative version). In FLAMING Eastman Color! Check out the cheesy trailer. Looks so silly/lame/fabulous! https://youtu.be/1JEncJJjhmI

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Macumba%20Love_zpso0rcoeda.jpg)


DESPERATE LIVING:

This is a blurry photo, but the best I could find of the rare (and odd-sized) poster for the early John Waters movie "Desperate Living". There were no one sheets for this title and it's very hard to find any posters for it today:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Desperate%20Living_zpshyuwqgz9.jpg)


FEMALE TROUBLE:

Here's another early John Waters poster--again the odd size (although there were later one sheets for this one--and I'd LOVE to have one).This is for "Female Trouble"! Oh my!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Female%20Trouble_zpsjxwmkjhj.jpg)


LUST IN THE DUST:

Although it is NOT a John Waters flick (even though it is often thought to be because it stars John Waters' superstar Divine), "Lust in the Dust" was also something I already had, but wasn't too expensive, so...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Lust%20in%20the%20Dust_zpsdqvwbeec.jpg)


MR. SARDONICUS:

"Mr. Sardonicus" is a William Castle movie. Castle was the King of the Gimmicks. The gimmicks sold the movies more so than the films themselves. The particular gimmick for this flick, "The Punishment Poll", is neatly illustrated/described in the poster. Patrons supposedly decided the ending of the movie. Thumbs up if you want the hero to live. Thumbs down if he needs to be punished. Knowing his audience would want the worst, only ONE ending was ever shot. Awesome! I already had this poster, but when another came available super cheap,i could not say no.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Mr%20Sardonicus_zpsryw9bqfs.jpg)


I DISMEMBER MAMA / BLOOD-SPATTERED BRIDE combo:

I already had a copy of this poster, but couldn't resist another cheap copy. It's the double feature poster for "I Dismember Mama" and "Blood Splattered Bride". There's also mention of a groovy gimmick---that all movie goers get a free UPCHUCK CUP! Zowie! (I'd like to find one of those--an unused one, of course.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/I%20dismember%20blood%20spattered%20comboi_zpswiltk7kk.gif)


COUNTRY CUZZINS:

My final poster for today is Harry Novak's "Country Cuzzins". "Country Cuzzins" is a sleazy low-budget country-themed sex romp from Harry Novak's Box office International Pictures that played drive ins over and over in the 70s. Novak made a lot of exploitation stuff in the 60s and 70s. Of his hillbilly themed flicks, he also had titles like "The Pig Keeper's Daughter", "Midnight Plowboy", "Tobacco Roody", and "Southern Comforts".

I need to get to bed, but want to get these up... Just a few more entries and I'll be done. Again these are poster purchased earlier this year, posted on another site---before I started my page here. I'm just moving them over...


THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS:

This first one was just something I stumbled upon, never expecting to see one or buy one. It was just suddenly there and not too expensive (considering what it is)."The Beast of Yucca Flats" is a low-budget shocker from the early 60s that stars Ed Wood favorite Tor Johnson. It's strictly a cheap, low budget flick...as the (not too thrilling) poster clearly makes it look, but has become a minor cult classic.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Beast%20of%20Yucca%20Flats_zpsbz97gug3.jpg)


A  CHRISTMAS STORY:

"A Christmas Story" is another long-wanted poster. It's mine now,and I didn't have to stick my tongue to a frozen flagpole, ask Santa or shoot my eye out to get it. Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/A%20Christmas%20Story_zpsmykzvdi3.jpg)


THE CHRISTMAS THAT ALMOST WASN'T:

Speaking of Christmas...I've never seen this flick and only heard of it when seeing the one sheet. Since seeing it, I've been hunting but not wanting to pay too much for. I've seen re-release matinee posters, but wanted this initial release poster (that says "Childhood Productions" on it). Again, I've never seen this Italian import--but it's colorful and could be fun to have on the walls during the holidays.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20christmas%20that%20almost%20wasnt_zpsa0nd7nvq.jpg)

THE RATS ARE COMING! THE WEREWOLVES ARE HERE!:

The posters of sleazemeister Andy Milligan's films are collectible.The posters are better than the films themselves and have a wonderful sleazy quality to them. I am lucky enough to have a couple already, but getting "The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves are Here!" is a true joy! There are other posters of his I really want---but to me, this one is a real coup. Yahoo! I just wish I had a better example (photo-wise) to share with you.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Rats%20are%20coming%20the%20werewolves%20are%20here_zpsy3mp2uje.jpg)


KONGA:

Even though I just scored another copy a few weeks back, I really had the hots for the British "KING KONG" rip-off,"KONGA" one sheet! Love this poster (although the film is kind of lame). i HAD been trying to get one forever. That's one off of my "Gotta have it" list! Whoo hoo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Konga_zpslzmzar57.jpg)

SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE:

 I already have one of these (I think), but thought this was a good bargain. From the 80s, it's the poster for "Soroity House Massacre" -- another movie I've never seen (or its sequels...).

BILLY JACK:

Here is the re-release of "Billy Jack". Although I have the set of "Billy Jack" movies on DVD, i still have not watched them yet. Made in the 70s, they are supposed to be cheesy cult flicks. I have one of the 4 Billy Jack posters and thought I'd go after the whole series. I like the re-release "Billy Jack" (as simple as it is) over the weird, psychedelic original release poster. It's nothing special but here it is:

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/billy%20jack_zpsjhdzu8li.jpg)


BLOOD BEACH:

Here is the cool one sheet for "Blood Beach" (another poster that is, in my opinion, better than the movie itself). The best thing about this flick is the poster art and the tag line that totally riffs that of "Jaws 2"--Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, you can't get to it! I already have at least one copy of this cool poster (I think), but it never hurts to have a spare. I actually saw this in the theater with a piece of crap called "The Day After Halloween". UGH! Neither film was all that good, but this one was better...and did i mention i liked the poster?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/blood%20beach_zpstmzgnlyf.jpg)


FIRE:

The photo below is the only photo I could find online (stolen from emovieposter.com...gasp!) to illustrate the poster for the international theatrical version of Irwin Allen's TV disaster movie "FIRE"! (The copy I got is a one sheet--not the three sheet shown). I already have another copy of this that had taken me years and years to track down. This one showed up and I bid a minimal amount ...and won it. Now I have a back up. Cool disaster art (for a crappy TV movie that international audiences had to PAY to see. Ha! At least it produced a cool one sheet...).

TORMENTED:

Although I had scored a copy of the wonderful "Tormented" poster in late 2014, another (in great condition) became available and went for a price that was too low NOT to invest in a 2nd copy. SOLD! I'll resell one of them down the line.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tormented_zpspiw0r0e8.jpg)


And there's another 10. Stay tuned for more coming soon.

CHEERS!

That Beast of Yucca Flats poster is great.
So is A Christmas Story and The Rats are Coming...
Actually, they are all worth having.
Really nice batch of paper here, Go-Go!

Hi Ted/Brude. Thanks. I kind of like the posters I got in this batch too. BEAST isn't the best poster--but it's rare. I had never even seen one before.

Thanks for looking, pal.

Hi Jeff. I'm glad you approve of these posters, but again--they are from early 2015, before I started this page. I have NOT bought a new poster in a month now. I've got a few more batched to post from that old website and then...well, I guess I won't have anything to post until I can afford to buy again. Hmm.

Anyway, here's another 10 from earlier this year BEFORE I started this page:

ECCO:

"Ecco" is another mondo-type documentary that came out in the 1960s to cash in on the sensation created by "Mondo Cane" and its sequel. Narrated by George Saunders, it's a hodge-podge of strange customs and rituals around the world (reindeer castration by teeth anyone? Done as a way to win your mate. I know I look for someone who can castrate with teeth when I look for a mate. NOT!). The poster is about as hodge-podgey as the film itself.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ECCO_zpszq2caibf.jpg)


BAYOU:

"Bayou" is a low budget melodrama set in the Louisiana swamp lands and stars a young Peter ("Mission Impossible" ) Graves from 1957. It went no where at the box office, so some enterprising showman bought the film, added in new scenes (with stand ins) that conveyed a rape scene (that was not part of the original story), re-titled the flick "Poor White Trash" and, with an exploitive ad campaign, made big bucks! (A similar stunt was pulled on a 1974 flick called "Scum of the Earth". It was rechristened "Poor White Trash 2" and, paired together, both films played drive ins for years!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/BAYOU_zpsgpabs0a7.jpg)


GREMLINS:

I should have had a copy of the original "Gremlins" poster ages ago, but they always seemed to elude me. Not this one. SOLD!!!! This is the classic poster for the cool 80s flick. I'll be careful not to feed it after midnight and not to get it wet! Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/GREMLINS_zps35aisnmi.jpg)


THE MINOTAUR:

Here is another wannabe "Hercules" clone from 1961, "The Minotaur" starring former Olympic star Bob Mathias. I haven't seen this (yet), but love those old "sword & sandel/peplum" flicks (or, I simply refer to them as "Hercules movies" even though Herc is NOT in most of them). A double bonus for wanting this is that Mathias was actually from a small town near here (Tulare). Somehow I don't think he was nearly as buff as he is portrayed in the illustration. Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/THE%20MINOTAUR_zpslpfsioor.jpg)

THE SADIST:

This poster is for the cheesy-sleazy 1963 trash fest (that is strangely compelling--yes, even though it stars Arch Hall Jr.) "The Sadist". Great poster! I was thrilled to score it. Even the poster has a wonderfully sleazy look to it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/THE%20SADIST_zpsaipw8d11.jpg)


MOTHER GOOSE' BIRTHDAY PARTY:

I've never seen this old kiddie matinee mess from K. Gordon Murray called "Mother Goose' Birthday Party"....but I hear it is awful. I've long had a hankering to track down this old kiddie matinee posters. I prefer the ones by "Childhood Productions" (usually presented in "Storybook Color" and "Never before seen anywhere"), but also really dig the K. Gordon Murray ones as well. (Barry Mahon also made several--but the posters for those are not nearly as interesting.) Why aren't these out on video? They're so AWFUL! Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MOTHER%20GOOSE%20BIRTHDAY%20PARTY_zpsujdtb2wj.jpg)


THE LAST CIRCUS:

"The Last Circus" is a Spanish horror movie I've heard great things about. I have it on DVD, but have not seen it yet. I know it only had a limited US release,so I didn't want to miss my chance when I saw this come up for sale...especially if it goes on to cult status.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/LAST%20CIRCUS_zpsygyg4epk.jpg)


JOHNNY FIRECLOUD:

I've never seen "Johnny Firecloud"--and the poster is not really attractive at all to me. However, the film,which is out on Something Weird Video, has been gaining a bit of a cult reputation. I'll track it down eventually. It was another cheap buy, so why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/JOHNNY%20FIRECLOUD_zpsuik6bn4s.jpg)


NIGHTMARES:

Eh... "Nightmares" is a forgettable anthology film with ho-hum scares. The poster is only marginably interesting, with the eys and hands reaching out. It was $3. Ha! Bargain...but I should have/could have PASSED on it (I probably already have one anyway...). Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/NIGHTMARES_zpsamul5mcf.jpg)


HOW TO STUFF A WILD BIKINI:

"How To Stuff A Wild Bikini" is the last of the Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello beach party movies. Though AIP would crank out one more ("Ghost in the Invisible Bikini" withOUT Frankie and Annette) and other imitators were still making some ("Catalina Caper" for example), this was the end of the party for Frankie and Annette. Frankie isn't in it much, as he is away in the navy (but has had a witch doctor spying on Annette via a magical pelican)! Annette, still a virgin, but visibly pregnant with her real-life child...tries desperately to remain true to Frankie, fight off the advances of Tommy Kirk, and conceal her bulging belly. As cheesy as these films are, I like 'em. I already have a copy of this, but it was also cheap. NOW that I finally got my hands on the poster for the original "Beach Party" last April, my Frankie and Annette beach party collection is complete. Now to track down some of the posters for the OTHER wanna be beach movies...(I.e. "Catalina Caper", the "Gidget" flicks, etc.).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/HOW%20TO%20STUFF%20A%20WILD%20BIKINI_zpsaz9crpja.jpg)


And that's 10. ALMOST done moving stuff over. Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.

AHH thanks, its been bugging me for a while now, a video i rented as a kid, im trying to get the first dozen tapes I rented as a mini collection, THIS is one of them, I couldnt remember the title or cover but when i saw the poster i realised.

Hi Ted/brude. I may run out of posters to move over from that old site, but I have years and years (boxes and boxes and tube and...) of posters. Not gonna "run out" in the near future. No worries there.

Ari, glad I brought back a memory from your youth...I just wish the movie in question was a better one. Good luck finding the video...

Cheers!

Arch Hall, Jr. as The Sadist is one of the funniest performances I've ever seen.
I'm sure that wasn't the intent, but that film stinks so bad it had me rolling on the floor in laughter.

Did I mention that I am extremely envious of your Last Circus one sheet?
That is a hard poster to find.

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on August 28, 2015, 01:37:14 AM
ARI--No need to explain or defend your youthful fixation. i totally understand as demonstrated below (see the "JACK FROST" listing).

Ted/Brude:  I know what you mean about Arch Hall Jr. in "The Sadist". It was a crappy movie, but I somehow "liked" it (NOT that I ever want/need to watch it again). I do like the poster though. And, zowie! It's good to know I did the right thing in buying the "Last Circus" poster when I saw it available. I need to watch it. I have it, as I said, in my huge pile of movies to watch.

MWright: Zowie! Thanks for the very kind praise.

Hey Gingerman!  No, it's a one sheet "Gremlins". By and large I only do one sheets...so, unless otherwise noted, everything I post is a one sheet (unless, like the example I used for "Fire" was a 3 sheet because I had nothing else to illustrate with). Good luck with your GREMLINS hunt. It took me decades...but I'm old (50). I bet you find yours long before you hit the big 5-0.

And now, here's the next 10. Not very exciting...but I'm almost done!

JACK FROST:

Not a very colorful or attractive poster...and the movie is certainly no classic...however this is one of the earliest movies I remember seeing (a portion of) as a kid (I think the absolute earliest was "Goldfinger" at the drive in during a re-release). For years I wondered what the film was,only having dim memories of a witch living in a tree house in which the tree turned to face different directions on command. This may also be the movie that kindled my interest in kiddie matinee posters. This poster clearly states it is showing Saturday and Sunday matinees only. I don't remember what movie we were seeing, but the portion of THIS movie I do remember (the witch in the tree house thing) stems from my running into the theater (I'm guessing my family was just going in to or out of another theater, seeing something else), seeing that portion of the movie---and then being dragged out by my father. I was very young, but clearly wanted to see the film desperately. The commercials on TV for it must have really captured my imagination and when I found out what theater it was in, I made a beeline for it. ( Couldn't find the real trailer---but it looks like someone made one. No narration--just music and sound effects. https://youtu.be/ygnS5njZRak ) Oh well. The film, it turns out, is actually a Russian movie that has nothing to do with Jack Frost apparently. I have not seen it as an adult,so have no idea if it's any good or not. I kind of doubt it... This was only a few bucks...why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jack%20Frost_zpsmltp59wj.jpg)


THE NUTCRACKER 3D:

I never knew this movie existed, but stumbled on the poster. It was cheap and apparently the flick is in 3D (noted on the poster). I'm a sucker for a gimmick and this might be nice to hang at Christmas time (at least that was what I had thought when I got this as I still had NOT landed a copy of "A Christmas Store" poster at that point! Ha!). Why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Nutcracker%203D_zpsz5hzj3hr.jpg)


BLUEBEARD'S 10 HONEYMOONS:


"Bluebeard's 10 Honeymoons"! Ha! Not in the best shape, but I dig the graphics with the bride followed by a long line of skeletons. Very cool. I had never heard of it until I saw the poster but I would love to see the flick.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/BLUEBEARDS%2010%20HONEYMOONS_zps14fjzevn.jpg)


TIGER MAN:

By now you probably know I have a thing for 3D and/or gimmick movies. I've never seen the martial arts movie "Tiger Man", but zowie! It's in 3D. SOLD! Ha! Actually, it looks like it might have been partially filmed in San Francisco (It looks like they are on top of a cable car!) and at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk (rollercoaster). And in 3D? How fun! The TIGER MAN poster came in a lot of other martial arts movie posters I have no interest in and will eventually sell or something.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TIGER%20MAN%203D_zpsrdmisjnf.jpg)


SANDS OF KALAHARI:

I've never seen "The Sands of Kalahari", but it looks like it might be a killer monkey movie (a la "In the Shadows of Kilimanjaro" perhaps?). It looked interesting and was reasonably priced so.,..SOLD! Incidentally, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were originally to star, but Liz asked too high a price and Burton also backed out. Stuart Whitman filled in.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SANDS%20OF%20KALAHARI_zpsejeouxjw.jpg)

SECRET CEREMONY:

Elizabeth Taylor did NOT back out of "Secret Ceremony" which also stars Mia Farrow and Robert Mitchum. A friend of mine digs this flick---although it does nothing for me--in which Liz plays a middle-aged prostitute who Mia Farrow thinks is her dead mother...and Liz,who also had a daughter die, goes and lives with her in her old mansion. $2 for the poster. Eh.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SECRET%20CEREMONY_zpsxtotiagi.jpg)


ALICE, SWEET ALICE:

Here is the 1977 horror flick (that was re-released a zillion times,especially after Brooke Shields got famous)one sheet for "Alice, Sweet Alice". While not the best horror flick either (and who,under 30, even knows it exists?), I always loved the image on the poster. The baby doll with two faces (happy and sad) with the knife plunged into it's bloody back and the creepy mask peeking out from inside the paper bag. Kind of cool.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ALICE%20SWEET%20ALICE_zps3vjw4wdy.jpg)


PIPPI IN THE SOUTH SEAS:

"Pippi in the South Seas" is one of a quartet of movies released here in the US that were apparently culled from a Swedish-made TV series in the late 60s. This poster is for the 2nd movie in the series. Pippi is a rich wild child (also the strongest girl in the world) who lives on her own in a suburban neighborhood (her father is a pirate and she has a chest of pirate treasure to use for expenses). She has a horse and monkey. She befriends a neighborhood brother and sister and takes them on crazy adventures. I always wanted to see these flicks as a kid--but didn't get to until years later on DVD.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/PIPPI%20IN%20THE%20SOUTH%20SEAS_zpsdug5n3es.jpg)


CRAZE:

CRAZE is some early 70s Jack Palance horror flick (Where black magic explodes into murder...). This movie also featured Diana Dors (Britain's one-time answer to Marilyn Monroe) but probably towards the end of her career, exploitation stars Julie Ege and Suzy Kendall, and Trevor Howard...also DAME Edith Evans! Ha! I've never seen it. Another cheapo for the pile... The poster looks much more interesting in real life.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/CRAZE_zpsrokgians.jpg)


A TASTE OF BLOOD:

Finally (for now) it's the one sheet for H.G. Lewis' "A Taste of Blood". Lewis has often been called "The Godfather of Gore" because of his shocking (for the 1960s and early '70s) use of gore that had, until that time, been unheard of.

"A Taste of Blood"is one of his lesser gore flicks, but I'm thrilled to get the poster for it. I have "The Gore Gore Girls", "Blood Feast" and "2000 Maniacs". I'd love to have a few other gore flick posters for his film. Oh well... Eventually, right? For now, this is AWESOME!

Ted/Brude: So SANDS OF KALAHARI is worth checking out? Good to know...

Here's the last batch of those posters I need to move over from that old site...

ARABIAN ADVENTURE:

This is the English one sheet for a 70s fantasy movie (Sinbad ripoff?) "Arabian Adventure". While I've never seen the film, I dig the poster. I already had the US one sheet, which is completely different. The US poster looks like a page out of a comic book. (Here's an example of the cartoon-y US version. Click the link:  http://forums.fanbolt.com/cached/68a260dd9b60c44916e378efb6738350.jpg )

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Arabian%20Adventure%20English_zpsfexyykd9.jpg)


SWORD OF ALI BABA:

"The Sword of Ali Baba"  is another Arabian fantasy from 1965. It's nothing spectacular--but, again, the poster was cheap. (It also apparently features a young Gavin MacLoed, aka Captain Stubing from "The Love Boat", as an Arab according to IMDB. Ha!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Sword%20of%20ali%20baba_zpskmedz7m9.jpg)


NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VACATION:

The only "VACATION" poster I've owned up until I got this was the one for CHRISTMAS VACATION (which I hope is NOT a fake, but fear it might be as it is taller by 1/2 or 1 inch or so than 41 inches). When the original poster for the series came along at a good price, I thought I'd go for it. Not wild about the art, but...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vacation_zps8aug6tcu.jpg)


PROSTITUTION:

Another (cheap) poster I came across that I'd never heard of but couldn't refuse is for some hokey-looking documentary (??) called "Prostitution" from 1963. I'm sure, if it is a doc, it is laughably faked and, because it's at least 50 years old, it would be horribly dated anyway. But the early sleaze factor of the poster could not be denied.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Prostitution_zpsydawgimt.jpg)


MURDER WITHOUT TEARS:

I've never seen 1953's thriller "Murder Without Tears", but the poster intrigued me with its wild use of color and I loved the screaming woman with the exaggerated scared hand in the center. Plus it was cheap. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Murder%20without%20Tears_zpsukpy77xj.jpg)


THE TERROR:

This is the advance poster for the Roger Corman flick starring Boris Karloff and a young Jack Nicholson. I've been wanting one for years. I just wish it had been the full color regular one sheet. Oh well...eventually.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/2f598f18-dd29-4aff-817c-7a76d7696dc9_zpschlcxqby.jpg)


SLEEPING BEAUTY:

Not the Disney version, this SLEEPING BEAUTY is some live-action schlock crap imported from somewhere, dubbed and fed to unsuspecting children who probably gagged the whole time they were trapped in the theater. I love my kiddie matinee posters. This one is from my favorite kiddie matinee company, Childhood Productions (they usually have the better posters...and all say the film is in "storybook color" and "Never before shown anywhere"). With the exception of one or two, I think i pretty much have all of the Childhood Production posters.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Sleeping%20Beauty%20CP_zpsju0azyiy.jpg)


MONDO CANE and MONDO CANE 2 combo:

Here is the double feature release of the 60s documentaries that started the "mondo" craze, "Mondo Cane" and "Mondo Cane 2". Virtually unknown to younger people today, these docs caused quite the sensation when they were released. Tame by today's standards, they still have their place in film history. And the poster features highlights from both films: "The With-it sex highs" "See the chicken that smokes", "naked witchcraft murders", ""co-ed orgy baths", "today's cannibalism", "see priests on fire!" THE MOST SENSATIONAL EXPOSE OF THE FREAK SIDE OF LIFE! Zowie!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Mondo%20Cane%201%20and%202%20combo_zpsryh04blt.jpg)


THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN:

I remember when this came out. I wanted to see it so badly, but didn't get to (of course) until the VHS days. By then, I was not impressed. Even the poster wasn't that exciting to me, but I got it for nostalgia's sake (even though I probably already have one tucked away somewhere).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/a7f5aebd-12ac-4d7e-8cf1-c6b292d8cf5c_zpstbjik2bm.jpg)


FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER and CURSE OF THE VOODOO combo:

Zowie! I love, love, LOVE this final poster! It is a great example of a really cool poster for a really awful movie, "Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster"!! The original title was going to be "Mars Invades Puerto Rico" or something like that--but who'd pay to see that? It's such a cheap and cheesy flick--in black & white, although you'd never know from the full-color poster.

The poster also screams that the management would supply patrons with FREE space shield eye protectors to prevent their abduction into outer space! Zowie! I wonder what those were. This is also a combo poster where the double feature is prominently displayed, "Curse of the Voodoo". Wow! Up until now I only had a ratty half sheet for this title. The one sheet is nearly pristine! Yippee!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Frankenstein%20Meets%20the%20Space%20Monster_zpsi5jquiaq.jpg)


Okay---everything is pulled over (with the exception of some snore-inducing martial arts posters I don't care about). If / when that old site dies (which it slowly is), I'll still have my poster collection (of stuff purchased this year, at least) saved here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love the Terror teaser, and Arabian Adventure, and Prostitution and -- holy shnikeys -- Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster.
You have a treasure trove of classics, moderns, exploitation, kiddies, etc. etc.
I think you need to take pics of them all and launch a website -- complete with your commentary, of course.
It would rock.

As always, thank you for the entertainment!

Oooooo... I am DOOMED! It had been a whole month since I bought anything. I'm in debt up to my eyeballs and I can't afford a thing. What happens? I get a saved search notice (that I actually look at --I had been avoiding them) and eeeek! I fun off and complicate my life further! I went shopping and marked a whole bunch of things to watch in addition to the one I really wanted. With poster fever back, I also checked out emovieposter to see what was going on there...and bid (very, VERY conservatively on a whole lot of stuff, knowing I'd be outbid on most of it....which was, of course, STUPID).

Emovie's wins were relatively painless--less than $40 (including shipping). They were nothing great, but... Here's what I got:

CHERNOBYL DIARIES:

Not the best film ever---far from it, in fact. But it did utilize an amazing location (where is that abandoned city they used? I knew it wasn't the real Chernobyl, but... I wanna go exploring!) and the poster is kind of spooky. Especially for only $1.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/chernobyl_diaries_advance_SG00574_C_zpscasrf7nm.jpg)


CHOCOLAT:

Hmm. This was a regret...a $3 regret. I liked CHOCOLAT a lot, but this review poster features Johnny Depp. I'm not anti-Johnny Depp, but I felt he did NOTHING for the movie and that his part was little more than a cameo. I didn't like his character and I felt that the section with him in it slowed the movie down. Oh well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/chocolat_SG00575_C_zpslssuaaqt.jpg)


PIRANHA 3DD:

I actually bid a bit more on this than the rest of the things I bid for on emovie. Posters for PIRANHA 3D are fairly easy to come by, but posters for its sequel PIRANHA 3DD (which played in very few markets for a very short time) are harder to come by. I was shocked when I found out I got this one. I've never seen PIRANHA 3DD, but bought the 3D blu ray (I just need a 3D blu ray player and 3D TV to see it...Ha!). The poster will have to do for now.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/piranha_3dd_advance_BM03343_C_zps937lct2n.jpg)


SCOOBY DOO AND THE WITCH'S GHOST:

Yes, this is a video poster. It didn't play theatrically, so video is the only option. I have several other SCOOBY posters. I was fairly sure I was missing this one.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/scooby_doo_and_the_witchs_ghost_video_dupe3_BM02912_C_zpsbkyt9rfq.jpg)


WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY:

Emovie had two of these up for auction on the same day for some reason, both the same grade. I bid very modestly on both (I don't know why since I already have a couple of copies already). I was out bid on the first one but got the second one for less than my max bid. Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/willy_wonka_and_the_chocolate_factory_R96_BM04467_C_zpsplkfooc9.jpg)


TRUE STORIES:

Never seen it, but feel I should (and would possibly like it).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/true_stories_gray_credits_style_SG00560_C_zpswgmkgx87.jpg)


TOMORROWLAND:

I picked up this TOMORROWLAND advance for only $1. Zowie!  I saw the film at the bargain second-run theater in town. I know it under performed (i.e. flopped), but I thought it was pretty good. I think it will gain some sort of notoriety/cult status in the future, so I thought I'd pick up the poster. Got it for far cheaper than I thought I would. $1? Really?? Wow!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tomorrowland_teaser_SG00573_C_zpsg1hhvcay.jpg)


Okay--so much for my emovie splurge, which was relatively painless. That brings us to the real reason I got off the wagon after a month...Heritage Auctions and the item I was notified about I really hoped to get. As I said, there were several other items I put on my watch list (deleting them as the days got closer to auction and their prices went up and up). On Sunday morning before getting ready for work, I put my bids in on the few items still in my watch list, hoping the magic of low-ball bidding that had worked on emovie would again work on Heritage, but I was reasonably sure most of (ALL of?) the items would be snatched up...and they were, with two exceptions.

During my work day (I'm a nurse), I do not have time for anything but patient care and charting, charting, CHARTING! Ugh!  But I found myself with 5 minutes midway through the day and logged on to Heritage. It was in the middle of the live auction and amazingly the poster I wanted 2nd most during the whole auction was on the auction block at that very moment I logged on. I was the top bidder...and then was (gasp!) outbid. I told myself (Ha!) that I was meant to get this as it was being auctioned the moment I logged on. So I hit the bid button. I was on top again--then out bid. I hit it a time or two more but told myself I'd stop at $50 (I did NOT want a replay of the KING KONG/NUDES ON THE MOON/GREEN SLIME fiasco). Whoever was bidding against me also stopped--and it was mine for $50 (really $64 with buyer's premium). And here it is:

EEGAH:

EEGAH is something else I have not seen yet (I have it, just have not gotten around to watching it yet). I have a copy already, but it is a poor copy. I know it's going to be campy crapiliciously wonderful when I do eventually see it. EEGAH stars Richard Kiel, who is best known for playing the bad guy JAWS in a couple of James Bond flicks (SPY WHO LOVED ME and MOONRAKER). He has passed on now, but I also had the privilege of meeting him and interviewing him in his home a few years ago. I'll attach a photo of us below. In the picture, you can see he has an EEGAH print on his wall. I was kind of stunned to see that in his house/office he only had cheap prints of some of his films hanging on the walls--not originals. (I didn't say anything, but...) Anyway, I wanted a better EEGAH to remember my time with Mr. Kiel (EEGAH himself!) and because it's just a fun poster. Arch Hall Jr also stars...along with "the Cave Mummies". Primitive passions turned on! Love breaks the time barrier! Zowie!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/EEGAH_zpstvb2si3v.jpg)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Richard%20Kiel%202_zpsfdorjzq2.jpg)


The BIG attraction that literally pulled me "off the wagon" was a poster for the fourth film in an obscure film series that was started with a movie whose poster I recently fought really hard to get and paid way too much money for -- TWICE!  Yes, the first film was WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN. This poster was for MME. OLGA'S MASSAGE PARLOR. The OLGA films are these incredibly low budget sleaze flicks, poorly made, the plot and scenes are all put together with narration (there is no onscreen dialogue) with classical music thrown in for dramatic effect. WHITE SLAVES started it all (I have that poster now), followed by OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME (best title and best poster, in my opinion). I have the poster for OHOS, but the upper left corner is ripped almost completely off. I need a better copy. I do not have a copy of the poster for the third film, OLGA'S GIRLS. MME OLGA'S MASSAGE PARLOR is the 4th film in the series, and also the only film that is "lost" in the series. There are no known prints of MOMP, only the trailer is known to exist ( https://youtu.be/F5jvimLNCQg ). The trailer just adds to the mystery. The character Olga doesn't appear to be in the movie. There is a reference to Madame Elaine...but no Olga. Audrey Campbell, who played Olga in the first 3, is not in Part 4. Maybe Olga is "away" and leaving the massage parlor duties to her associate "Madame Elaine"? Unless the film surfaces, we may never know for sure...  There was also a 5th one, "Olga's Dance Hall Girls", which features another actress in the Olga part. This one is the least liked by fans...but it's actually my favorite of the bunch. Ha!  I am reasonably sure I have the poster for ODHG, but not 100% sure.

Anyway, the poster for MME OLGA'S MASSAGE PARLOR was coming up for auction. It was paired with another poster for something called INSIDE A GIRL'S DORMITORY (?) that was trimmed. The way I read the description, the OLGA poster was uncut and the other was trimmed. Combined it caused the lot to have a lower grade. But I looked at the poster as best I could on the scan and it looks pretty good to me. I really wanted it. But can't afford to go crazy for it. Not only is the film lost, but the whole series is so obscure and there can't be many posters for the five films floating around to begin with. By Sunday morning there were only 2 or 3 bids---very cheap. Still, I knew it wouldn't be that easy. Knowing I'd have to spend some money to even try but also knowing I'm broke, I bid some random amount ($127)--a lot, but not crazy high. It wasn't until I got home that I found out I got it--for my top bid, of course. (Why couldn't it have been mine for only $15 or so? Ha!) The total for it (with buyers premium) was $151.77 (where did they get the 77 cents from?). OUCH! I had to do the unthinkable. I had to C-H-A-R-G-E EEGAH and OLGA. Blah.  Oh well. It's mine (even though it's not that fab of a poster...):

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MME%20OLGAS%20MASSAGE%20PARLOR_zpsbbhnybef.jpg)


Oh yes, in case you are wondering,here's the trimmed INSIDE A GIRL'S DORMITORY poster as well. I will get rid of this eventually. I only want the OLGA poster...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/INSIDE%20A%20GIRLS%20DORMITORY%20trimmed_zpsnl4yxuvf.jpg)

Catch ya later.

I was outbid but won it in the end, i didnt have to pay much. Of course it that to be mine. Once I decided I wanted it..well, it had to be ;)

Enjoy your posters!!

Good work, and don't worry, you pay it off and be ok.
Eeggaahhhhhhhhh is terrific, I had one once and it sold to an Arch Hall fan, prob ten years ago and for considerably more than you paid.
Regarding the Olga,mr hats a beauty, I had a number of the HOUSE OF SHAME one sheets, the people at something weird found a stash of them, all unused, so that's why that one is more common, thou I suspect they are well and truly dried up by now, I should have kept a few.

By the way, apart from your good taste, I know respect you more, a nurse? I spent a long time/s in hospitals. I can't express how grateful I am to your profession. Seriously, thanks (I know you didn't help me, but I'll say anyway).

Hi guys...thanks for stopping by for a visit. I'm always happy to see you.

Neo:

Zowie! Aren't you full of information. Yes, I remember how limited the showings were. I was so upset. I wanted to see it so bad--but was never able to. And yes, I'm glad I got my one sheet (apparently it's formerly Crazy Vick's one sheet. Thanks again, Vick!) because I realize how hard to find they are. Again, I am shocked I actually got this one.

Quote
You met and interviewed Richard Kiel?  Do you have a video or article of the interview?  Seems like he was a cool guy.

Yes, I met Richard Kiel. That photo was taken in his home office in fall 2010, I believe. I've spent the last few hours searching for a digital version of the article (one exists--I have it somewhere, but I think it's in my external hard drive that crashed, because I can not seem to find it any where else. I can always re-scan it if I come across the actual magazine again. ARGH!). I also went looking for the audio file from the interview. The only audio file I could find (on my old digital recorder) was a really awful phone interview with Sid Haig (last celeb interview I did). There may be another in my files--but I can NOT find it (yet). I'll keep looking though... But he was nice. He signed two photos for me (one, as Jaws, strangling James Bond. The other is as EEGAH!) and also two books he had written, his autobiography (Making it BIG in Hollywood...or something like that, and his historical biographical novel on the life of Casius Clay which was just AWFUL!).

ROSA:

I wish you had... I think the OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME poster is the best poster of the 5 films. I really need to get another/better one. Some day...  By the way, you mentioned Something Weird. They sell a disc with three OLGA films on it: WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN, OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME and OLGA'S DANCE HALL GIRLS. Synapse has OLGA'S GIRLS on DVD as well.

I kind of like that one as well. There is a second photo of us, same position, but we are shaking hands and he has his other hand on my shoulder.

It's a cool flick, although not really on the same level as Piranha 3D which is epic.  It was cool to see on the big screen, especially in 3D.  I drove about an hour to the only theater near here that was screening it.

Sounds like a great experience meeting Mr. Kiel.  Good luck finding the interviews.  If you ever find them and want to post them here or somewhere, that would be cool.

Jeff: Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words. I'm guessing you are back from your trip? I hope you had a swell time.

Neo: Crazy Vick sold it to me indirectly through  emovieposter. I'm still thrilled though. And regarding the Richard Kiel article, I just called my replacement at the newspaper  and had her find a copy of the magazine  for me. She did and is sending it. Once it arrives, I will scan it and post it here and also send it to you in a PM in case you miss seeing it posted here. The actual recorded conversation  (interview), if I still have a copy and is on that crashed hard drive, will have to wait until I can get the data extracted. I don't even know if I kept the interview as I did so many interviews and just erased them as I went (which was really DUMB of me). I did find another short and crappy phone interview with Conrad Brooks (actor in Ed Wood movies). Oh man. He was a piece of work. Ha. I had to buy something from him before he would let me interview him, then called several times afterwards trying to get me to buy other stuff. So funny. Anyway., the Kiel article (from 2009 not 2010) will be coming soon.
Cheers!

Uh oh... I did a bad, BAD thing. Hot on the heels of the big purchase I couldn't afford earlier this week, I bought another poster. ARGH!  I couldn't help myself. It was one of the few H.G. Lewis vintage horror posters I needed (bringing my "need" list down to just TWO titles of his) and, although it was pricey (for me), I didn't want to chance not seeing another for 10 years or so since I rarely see them. So I bid. I'll spare you the story of how I paid for it--but I will say I had NO money in the bank and NO room on the credit cards. EEEK! I do get paid tomorrow--so it was just an "advance". But I couldn't let this one slip away...

The poster is for H.G. Lewis'...

THE GRUESOME TWOSOME: 

Although NOT the best poster...and NOT the best of Lewis' handful of horror flicks from the 60s/early 70s, this is one of the first of his that I actually saw (on VHS). Not as gory as BLOOD FEAST or any of his other flicks by far, GRUESOME TWOSOME tries hard in its tale of a little old lady and her crazy son who have a wig shop that sells wigs with real human hair. Guess where they get it from? Predating "Maniac" by about 10 years, the scalping effects are very primitive and cheesy...but effective enough for this primitive and cheesy movie. It also contains two talking styrofoam wig heads at the beginning and end of the film. Weird. Wonderful. And now the poster is MINE!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Gruesome%20Twosome_zps7duxwekv.jpg)

Also a bit of mystery today. A few years back when I went back to school to become a nurse, I moved everything out of my 4-bedroom house into a tiny,cramped mother-in-law apartment behind the garage of a house my mother owns and rents out to a family. It's awful. All of my stuff is in here piled up all around me. I have little paths that lead here and there--like a hoarders house, but if/when I ever get back into my house, everything will have a place again.

Anyway, the mysterious part was that I was rearranging some of my more than 200 framed posters (BIG mistake on my part, trying to frame all of my posters---do you know how much room that takes? UGH!), and I was looking at a few as I was moving them. "Dawn of the Dead", "Suspiria", "Night of the Living Dead", blank... Huh? BLANK?  Yes, there was a frame with NO poster in it. I can NOT for the life of me think of any reason there would be a blank, empty frame. Once a poster was framed, it stayed framed. I sold two posters that had been framed (stupid of me---they were the original "LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT" and "GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER", aka "GODZILLA 2". I'll never get replacements for them now that things are sooo pricey), and popped new things in those frames right away. I haven't sold a poster in ages nor do I just let frames sit empty. So where did it go--and what poster was it? BIZARRE! I just can't imagine why it's empty and what was in it. Hmm.

But I think I'll fill it with my recently purchased "KING KONG" '56 purchase. I've wanted that poster for sooooo long.

Anyway, thanks for stopping in.

See you next time.

CHEERS!

Hi guys. Thanks for stopping by.

ARI: I HATE my life right now. I know where NOTHING is and it's just like living in a storage shed (one of my many nicknames for this place). Thanks for the tip on the book by Chris Curry. I immediately looked it up on Amazon. $62!!  GEEZ!  Luckily, someone had a "used--like new" copy up for only $9. Instantly SOLD! (Not that I need anything else in this place, but...). And the mystery of the frame continues. Curiously I discovered the backing board is taped to the back of the frame---so it can't easily be opened. Why would I do that when the frame is empty? WEIRD.

TED/BRUDE:  Yes, more than 200 framed posters. You forget, I've been buying posters for YEARS and YEARS.My first were purchased when I was in elementary school and I'm 50 now. I really started buying regularly in the mid-90s when I finally had a more or less stable salary (I was a teacher, then a journalist, and now a nurse with tons of student loan and credit card debt). I fully disclosed I had more than 200 framed posters twice--in the introductory thing I posted when I first got on and in my very first entry for this thread. I posted my crappy (very LOW definition) video I made back in 2008 showing them. The video, once again, is here: ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDCf3DYtxOU&feature=youtu.be  ).  I just re-watched it myself. In it you will see the SUSPIRIA and DAWN OF THE DEAD posters, but this was before I had the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD posters (I got the original in 2009). You'll also see the gone (and still kicking myself over) LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER posters. Most aren't all that good/collectible/sought after--but they appeal to me. Between that video (2008) and now, there's 6 years of poster buying (I must STOP!!!)---and again, the video only shows my framed posters at that time. NOT the ones in boxes and rolls.

It's only been the last 3 or 4 years or so that posters have gotten crazy high. I started keeping print outs of the auction pages so I knew how much I spent on them. I still do that but now I just keep digital copies. I sold the LAST HOUSE and GIGANTIS posters for $10 or so each around 2009-ish on eBay. ARGH! I'll NEVER be able to get them back unless I want to spend another small fortune.

You don't have a FRANKENSTEIN 6-sheet? Really? I have 3. NOT!!!  I have NO Frankenstein (even re-release stuff) unfortunately. I suck.


CHEERS!

 Yes...I watched all of the 7 day challenge...lol.  Ed Wood has nothing on you..ha.  But seriously, I too keep most of my posters framed.  Where do you get your frames?  I have used Sue (here on the threads) and Spotlight frames...good folks.  I tried a wholesale frame company (on the web) and did not like the quality. 
 Nice posters man!

Hi everyone. Thanks for popping over and saying hi.

ROSA: It sounds like you understand. I haven't got any of my posters up now as I'm living in my temporary shack-o-rama!  I miss SEEING them everywhere.  Waaaagh!


Ba527401: Hi there. I don't think we've met before, but welcome to the poster party. Oh dear... I am so sorry you endured the 7 day video challenge (you watched ALL of them? Really? WHY!?!). That was way back in 2008, YouTube was new to me and seemed fun at the time. I've since learned my lesson and STOPPED. Ha! But, aside from that one video, none of them are really about my posters, poster collecting, etc. My poster framing madness happened quite a few years back. (starting in 2005 or so). I really have not framed anything since because I don't have room for any more frames. I do want to get some lighted frames down the road (especially for the lenticular posters), but not until I'm in a house again. I wasn't on the website yet, so didn't know of Sue. I just bought most of them through something called Wholesale Poster Frames (probably the one you mentioned you didn't like)---not the best, but I bought so many I needed the least expensive I could find. I also got a lot of them from an art supply store. Those with the thicker frames (in the video) are from the art store and I used those to hold my favorites/most expensive posters at the time. Thanks for stopping by though--again sorry you watched the other videos (o' the horror!).


Jeff/erik1925:  There was a discount, but not much. I've checked prices a few times over the years---and they've really gone up.

MAGG, can I ask what kind of backing board is in all of your frames?

Is it an acid free type of board or foam core, hopefully? (or at least what is coming in contact with the back of each poster).

Title: Re: Monster A Go-Go's Shock-A-Rama Poster Show (in Blood-Curdling Freak-O-Vision!)
Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on September 03, 2015, 06:52:33 PM
Foam core, I believe. Zowie! Thanks for reminding me. When I am able I really need to get on the acid-free bandwagon and save my stuff from deteriorating. Geez!

Foam core, I believe. Zowie! Thanks for reminding me. When I am able I really need to get on the acid-free bandwagon and save my stuff from deteriorating. Geez!

Hopefully the foam core provided in each frame was the acid free kind. Then you would be A-OK.  ;)

Jeff:  I don't think the foam core I got is acid free. I just went to the website of the merchant I bought the bulk of the frames from, added one of their bulk packs to my cart and looked at the contents. All come with regular (not acid-free) foam core backing. UGH!  I have a LOT of replacing to do as soon as possible. ARGH!!!

Not long ago (earlier this week?) I had "won" the poster for "EEGAH" and posted a photo of myself with the star of "EEGAH", Richard Kiel, best known for playing the villainous JAWS character in the James Bond thrillers THE SPY WHO LOVED ME and MOONRAKER. I met him for an interview I did on him back in 2009. Neo asked for the recorded interview or a copy of the printed final version. I couldn't find either, so I asked the newspaper to send me a copy of the magazine. I got it today and scanned the article. Oh my. I cringe when I see it now. I haven't thought about this article in years, but when I see it today--ugh!  This was right about the time the newspaper industry started to tank. The powers that be decided to make things more appealing to readers by revamping the stories to be more reader friendly and local. The formatting "Why he's famous"/"Valley connection" are all a part of that. I especially cringed when I was reminded of the "Fast Facts" aspect at the beginning of the article. (Which eventually morphed into "Fun Facts") Blah! All NOT my idea. But that is why a lot of my celebrity interviews eventually faded away...as they were trying to be more local. I only got to interview celebs after that if I was doing a travel story that somehow incorporated them (like an article on visiting Hollywood at Halloween mentioned a celebrity show where people can meet their favorite stars. There is one every October, so I had a celebrity in that. I also had to do some awful articles on some of the National Parks. I sort of know Susan Olsen who was Cindy on the Brady Bunch. I used her when writing about Pearl Harbor and the Grand Canyon! I had been to neither place at that time and she had--on the show decades earlier! Ha! I got away with it too. But you should have seen my editors faces. "Cindy Brady? REALLY?" They'd just look at me and shake their heads. Ha!

Anyway--as crappy as it is (and the first scan is really hard to read--sorry!), here is the Richard Kiel article as well as the other photo I had taken with him that day.

But the way it's edited/formatted/stuffed into only three pages, there's very little "interview" left to it. I think there are what? 4 or 5 sentences quoted? LAME...

You're being hard on yourself.
It is well done.
I've worked with many editors on interview formatting and my personal preference is how you handled it.
You've worked his quotes into your content quite nicely.
It is a damn fine read.

Interview famous folks, writing about (and visiting?) national parks, etc.  That's awesome.  

As Ted said, it's a good, thorough, fairly brief summary of Mr. Kiel's work history.  It's unfortunate that you weren't able to do things how you wanted to, but the opportunity you had is darn cool.  It's a well done piece.  Thanks for sharing.

 cheers

Hi guys, Thanks for reading and saying nice things.

The article is what it is. When you interview someone, you never know what you are going to get. And, until the article is written, you really never know what you are going to turn out. The editing process is another aspect that is completely OUT of your control..."FAST FACTS" (groan) and all.

TED/BRUDE: You've "worked with editors"???  What do you do? Hmm.

Neo: Are you kidding? Actually getting to TRAVEL to places I write about for my travel stories?? Ha! ha! ha! Ha! HA! Nope--never happened. (Well, unless I had happened to go there on my own and then turned it into an article that is). I won an award for a travel article about an old fashioned train that had been restored and was running passengers. I was told my article really gave the reader the feeling of what the trip must be like. I never even saw the dang train. I did all sorts of travel articles. I was the travel (and celebrity) guy for my department. Most of it was all based on phone or email interviews. But I really liked writing. It didn't pay anything but it was creative. Nursing pays better, but--although it's a nurturing and noble career-- it's not as satisfying to my creative side. Oh well.

Thanks for coming by.

CHEERS!

Oh my stars! It has been soooooo long since I bought anything. However, just the other day a package arrived for me. Hmm. What could it be? Some fabulous poster I forgot all about? Inheritance from some long, lost relative I didn't know existed? The Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes? No to all of those things. Instead i got an incredible surprise package from... ARI!!!!  Zowie! It was fabulous and soooo unexpected. (He had told me he was sending me a little something--but I never expected something so amazingly cool...and, quite frankly, I had forgotten he said he was going to send something.)

Here is what he sent:

A small poster advertising Ted V. Mikels' first Australian Tour with several nights of his films being shown. The tour never happened--Mikels got sick--but the poster remains.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222454_zpssdosrfkk.jpg)

Then, it's a flyer for a Mikels dounble feature--"THE WORM EATERS" with "THE CORPSE GRINDERS". It also looks like there is a premiere of another film ("FISHING LICENSE") coming right afterwards (Never heard of that one, but I'll have to look it up).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222537_zpsexhfg0wf.jpg)


And did you notice? The flyer is autographed by Ted V. Mikels:

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222555_zpsbpa9kko5.jpg)


Next, it's the press book for "THE WORM EATERS"! Zowie!

...which is also autographed by Ted v. Mikels:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222527_zpswxej0ya5.jpg)

Finally, I got a flyer and a postcard from Ari advertising his memorabilia with personal notes inscribed on the back:

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222659_zpsmamsfs92.jpg)

And, best of all, they are autographed by the coolest guy down under himself, Mr. Ari Richards! Wow!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/20150925_222710_zpsk9fxudl9.jpg)

Zowie!  Thank you soooooo much Ari. Your generosity was a wonderful surprise and totally blew me away. You rock!  I love my fabulous surprises!!  YIPPIE!!!

CHEERS!

You're welcome, just a thanks, as some know I spent many months in hospital, and while I know doctors do good stuff, I'm living proof, it's NURSES who do the hard yards, without the support from people who seem to have endless supply of caring I doubt I could have handled it all. THEY DONT GET PAID ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH.
Anyway, enjoy some TVM paper, I know I do.

Hi there!  I'm back from my trip, but STILL on a medical leave for me leg. UGH! No more paychecks and the disability insurance has still NOT kicked in. No nibbles on my house either. I am doomed. However, as much as I was going to, i have not exactly shied away from buying posters altogether...because I am an ADDICT and because I have one credit card (that was almost paid off) that I took on the trip with me. I ended up NOT using it that much and, when my friends went off to go hiking or something I couldn't do because of my knee, I'd sit on the terrace, watch the sea turtles frolicking in the surf, and go poster shopping!  ARGH!!!!  (I also sent Ari a postcard. Did you get it yet? Ha! Thanks again for the wonderful, WONDERFUL surprise package! Wow!)

My posters this time are my attempts to add a little more international flair to my collection. The first batch are from Spain...ole!


BLACK CANDLES:  Although the Spanish title "The Sexual Rites of the Devil" is way cooler sounding than the US title, "Black Candles" (which i own on DVD and have seen---and have absolutely NO memory of. Did it ever play theatrically?), the Spanish poster had an undeniable creepy coolness factor. Sex,depravity and aberration? Sold!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Black%20Candles%20Spain_zpsiuld1xsa.jpg)


MARK OF THE WOLFMAN/FRANKENSTEIN'S BLOODY TERROR:   Although Frankenstein's monster appears nowhere in this and it was only saddled with the title "Frankenstein's Bloody Terror" to appease theater owners who were promised a Frankenstein movie, this is actually the very first of the long string of Paul Naschy werewolf movies. I got it fairly cheap and thought it was a good deal. Not only is it the first Naschy werewolf flick, but it's also a country of origin poster as well. Apparently it was also made in 3D, which was presented here as being "Super 70 Chill-a-Rama"!  Zowie! Wish I had seen it back in the day...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/LA%20MARCA%20DEL%20HOMBRE%20LOBO_zpsyiuqfyed.jpg)


MURDER MANSION:  I know nothing about this movie (but have since ordered it from eBay--uber cheap). However reviews on IMDB make it seem like a spooky little horror flick that might be right up my alley. Poster is so-so...still kind of cool and also a country of origin poster. Why not!?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Murder%20Mansion%20Spain_zpsekkxhbar.jpg)


CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST: I would love to have the US one sheet for this--alas, it has yet to happen. However, I came across this Spanish poster for the famous Italian gut-muncher cannibal epic and was blown away by the graphic and horrific images on the poster--and couldn't pass it up. Jeepers! That would have freaked me out if I saw that in the theater lobby as the next attraction as a kid! Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cannibal%20Holocaust%20Spain_zps5fzxtlcw.jpg)


CANNIBAL TERROR: While I still had my craving (for human flesh? Ha! No--POSTERS!), I thought I'd pick up this silly and very cheap-o-rama Spanish poster for "Cannibal Terror". I actually saw this flick just before my trip on DVD. Hilariously bad. At one point while in the native village, cars can be seen driving by in the distance. Ha! This is a Spanish-French co-production that came late in the cannibal wave of the 70s and early 80s.  But you know how those pesky cannibals in the unexplored regions off of the Riviera or in the Pyrenees Mountains are (maybe they're just confused Basques?). What a silly-lame poster for a silly-lame movie. Had to have it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cannibal%20Terror%20Spain_zpsd99yg1w0.jpg)



Of course, I've really been wanting to try Thai. I finally bit the bullet and went shopping--with mixed results (but hey--this was my first Thai experience! Be gentle with me... Ha!)


CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 / THE GREEN INFERNO: Okay--last cannibal poster. Promise!  This is a Thai poster for "Cannibal Holocaust 2"--in name only. I researched it a bit and apparently the film started life as a TV movie called "The Green Inferno" (no relation to Eli Roth's current film of the same name)...that is actually devoid of cannibals altogether! Ha! How could I say no after getting my other two cannibal posters? And hello? It's Thai! I had to try it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cannibal%20Holocaust%202%20Thai_zpsxouh4ikz.jpg)


LATITUDE ZERO:  I've never heard of this flick, but there's so much fun and imaginative stuff going on in this Thai poster that I thought I'd pick it up. It wasn't too expensive any way.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Latitude%20Zero_zpsevuqzmgb.jpg)


SPIDER LABYRINTH:  My big Thai regret is this poster for "Spider Labyrinth". Why regret? Well, the image is creepy cool enough, but it's the same image used on the Italian poster (and this is an Italian movie). I've also seen it on English posters. There's just nothing Thai-ish about it. Nothing that makes those groovy Thai posters that others have been buying just POP and do their US one sheet counterparts shame. Oh well...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Spider%20Labyrinth%20Thai_zpsp8yk5g43.jpg)


THE AWAKENING: Another quasi-disappointment (the jury is still out on this one). "The Awakening" is a dud of a movie. I probably should have passed on this poster--but, like the "Latitude Zero" poster, there is so much happening in this one I thought why not? Hmm...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Awakening%20Thai_zpscarw7sha.jpg)

THE BOOGEY MAN: This is a great example of a Thai poster taking a US one sheet image and bumping it to the next level. Like the US version, there is a frightened woman at a window. The extra shards of glass (or, in keeping with the movie's plot, perhaps they are pieces of mirror?) with horrific scenes from the film on them really punches this poster up. Not as cool as some of the fully original Thai pieces (such as the awesome "Apocalypse Now" or "Escape From New York" Thais), but it worked well enough for me to buy this one.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Boogey%20Man%20Thai_zps3addhxdp.jpg)


I do have a few more, but they can wait. Anyone know of an AA-type program for poster addicts? I have NO BUSINESS shopping now. EEEK!

Thanks Jeff and the ever delightful Rosa!

Continuing my International shopping spree (that I can't afford--but did it any way. Bad! Bad! BAD!!!! Ooooo the things we do when we are laid up and have nothing but a computer at our disposal and are bored-Bored-BORED!!!), here are these others. (Get your passports ready!):

From Spain (Ole again...just a carry over from yesterday), two more "country of origin" posters:

THE SINISTER EYES OF DR. ORLOFF:  For better or worse, "The Awful Dr. Orloff" introduced schlock-meister Jess Franco to the world. During the early years of his career, he frequently returned to his popular Orloff creation in an attempt to stay relevant perhaps, or maybe just to make some quick cash? Whatever, Orloff has appeared in at least four films bearing his name in the title. (He's also in "Faceless" as well...). Although I may already have a copy of this poster, this third film in the series' (after "Dr. Orloff and the Invisible Monster") poster was cheap. Sold!

THE SINISTER DR. ORLOFF: What could be more sinister than Orloff's sinister eyes? How about the entire sinister man himself? Here is the poster for the fourth Orloff film...also very cheap (and sinister).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Sinister%20Dr%20Orloff_zps1zdiuox9.jpg)



I also have what appears to be an Egyptian poster (my first), printed in English (which is apparently rare?).


THE TIGRE OF ESCHNAPUR:  This is not the usual shlock-o-rama stuff I usually buy, but I was just so taken with the old school litho-look of it, I had to have it (but am not sure if it's a litho or not). I was told it's a 1960s poster (the film is from 1959 and directed by Fritz Lang). Blah blah blah...here it is:


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tigre%20of%20Eschnapur_zpshaaipsm6.jpg)


From Mexico, I scored this little gem:

DR. SATAN AND BLACK MAGIC: I had never heard of this, but once I stumbled upon it I couldn't let this go. O' those crazy filmmakers south of the border...they do come up with some wild and cheesy stuff--especially in the 50s, 60s, and early 70s. Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dr%20Satan%20Y%20La%20Magia%20Negra_zpscjnks1d8.jpg)


Now let's mosey all of the way over to Belgium for my very first Belgian poster! (Yes, in addition to Thai and Egyptian, I've finally lost my Belgian virginity, too!)


I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN: I have always resisted the Belgian posters. They often look like window cards (with the big space on top) and usually are just ultra colorful seemingly re-strikes of exisiting poster art (for the most part--NOT always). They didn't work for me. Then I saw this gorgeous Belgian "I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN" poster and I was sold. Look at that art and use of color. Zowie! Soooo awesome. And it's NOT the usual Belgian poster size I'm used to seeing. Oooo...  ahhhh Better than Belgian chocolates (and fewer calories)!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/I%20Was%20A%20Teenage%20Frankenstein%20Belgian_zpsh1o1jwib.jpg)



Next stop is Turkey. Do you have your entry visas ready? Don't try smuggling anything in or out of the country. I'd hate for the authorities to go all "Midnight Express" on you. Yikes!


DEVIL FISH:  While the film over all is a dud and NOTHING like the poster art actually happens in the film, you gotta love the wild artwork any way. For something like this, I would have probably preferred getting the Italian original (same art, i think...). But this Turkish came along and...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/turkish_devil_fish_SD03299_C_zpscpkkc4re.jpg)



All aboard for Japan...

JAWS 3D: I like my "JAWS" movies--yes, even the awful sequels (I saw "JAWS 3D" at least twice in the theater---in 3D, and know I sat through "JAWS THE REVENGE" twice at the drive in and may have seen it once in a walk in). The "JAWS 3D" poster has different art and I kind of dug it. It's now my 2nd piece of Japanese poster art. I have a B2. This is my first chirashi. Why do I feel like sushi all of a sudden?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jaws%203D%20chirashi_zpstttuxmrs.jpg)


Heading back over Asia, our next stop is Lebanon...


NIGHT OF THE SHARKS: Speaking of sharks, although I've never seen "Night of the Sharks", I really dug this Lebanese poster for the film...and it's printed in English. Always a nice bonus and nice shark art work.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Night%20of%20the%20Sharks%20lebanese_zpsozoueejz.jpg)


MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH: After the fin-tastic artwork in the Lebanese poster for "Night of the Sharks", what could be more terrifying than the Lebanese artwork for "Mako: The Jaws of Death"?!? Oh my STARS! I laughed out loud when I saw this. It looks like it was done by a 4th grader. Love it--but what a change in art quality from one poster to the next in the same country. As a bonus, it IS also in English. The poster is soooo bad--too funny. I needed it. The shark attack art is almost as bad as the Ghana movie posters I so recently learned about. Some of those are beyond awful/awesome (but let's save that discussion just a bit longer. Shall we?).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jaws%20of%20Death%20Lebanese_zps8khwly4l.jpg)


Last stop, down in Africa for some special poster art from Ghana! Oh my STARS!


THE SLAUGNTER/THE SLAUGHTER?/ZOMBIE???  Wow! Where do I begin? I had seen references here and there on APF to posters from Ghana...but never actually saw one and didn't know what the big deal was. I was Googling something else the other day (Thai posters, perhaps?)  and this insane image came up in the search. Clicking on it, I was taken to this website that had some crazy cool posters from around the world...and there were a number of posters from Ghana. Oh my stars! They were awful yet awesome at the same time. How did I miss these? Easy. It turns out they were all hand painted (never printed) and were done often by artisits who had never seen the movie they were illustrating---only having been given a synopsis of what the movie is about. They were done to promote travelling video shows (guess there are no movie theaters? I've never been.) in the 80s and early 90s. Since then, the primitive (yet so cool) art has caught on and has become big in the art world, with pieces fetching thousands of dollars and there have even been gallery exhibits and books written about them. Wow! I'm probably repeating things everyone else already knows--but I am way, way late to the Ghana movie poster party. (For those that do NOT know what I am talking about, here's a Google image search for Ghana movie posters. Check it out. There's some crazy, bat-shit awesomeness in there: https://www.google.com/search?q=ghana+movie+posters&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMIsKnT2N65yAIVDMJjCh1xUwmB&biw=1680&bih=959 (https://www.google.com/search?q=ghana+movie+posters&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMIsKnT2N65yAIVDMJjCh1xUwmB&biw=1680&bih=959)). Anyway, I know that because they have caught on so much, there are a lot of "fakes" out there and mine may well be a fake...but I still wanted something from this whole Ghana thing. It's just so wild.  My poster was apparently not selling after a long while. The price was down and I can understand why. Most Ghana posters are painted on canvas, but not all. Some are on cardboard or anything else they could find to use. Mine is on the back of a rice bag. Really. The seller also could not identify the movie featured on the poster. The title reads "THE SLAUGNTER". HUH? If they meant "THE SLAUGHTER",it was clearly spelled wrong...and you still have no idea what movie it is.  But then I actually LOOKED at the poster and what it was trying to convey. In the upper left corner, you have a corpse's face that appears to be focusing on something. To the right of it is a screaming woman in a tropical setting. At the bottom, you have a woman (with fangs) eating a man at the neck area and behind them there is a herd of strange-looking people walking towards them. Oh my stars. Except for the fangs, this could almost be..."Zombie"! At the end of the movie, the 2nd female lead (now one of the undead) DOES bite into her husbands shoulder/neck. The people walking towards them do look like zombies. It takes place on a tropical island. Could it be? I'll never know. It could just be a rushed fake...but it's still cool. (Although not as cool as some of the others out there. Wow! Just wacko stuff. Ha!) I'm glad I got it and it was relatively inexpensive. (And--zowie! It's just H-U-G-E!!)

I think MAGG mentions that this was chirashi (B5) size? And I agree with you, Chris. It is a great poster image. So different from the other Jaws 3D poster art out there.  thumbup

agreed, I have one of these also, (and thanks for giving me JANO's full name) :)

The GHANA rules, I got to get one also.

Hi there all. Thank you, as always, for visiting my thread. I know it's not classiest place to hang out on APF--kind of low-budget seedy,actually...so I do appreciate you stopping in.

JEFF: Who is Darvishjo. Hmm. I suppose I can look him up on the member page, but I'd hate to bug him about my simple poster. If he happens upon it--great. If not, c'est la vie.

ROSA: I am uber impressed you know of the artist of the ORLOFF poster and can identify his work just like that. I will need to look him up and see some of his other works. I am honored to know that both you and Ari also have this same poster. That makes me feel good to know I am in such good company. Zowie!

STEVE: Thanks for the thumbs up on those posters of mine. Of the most current posting, those two plus the Belgian TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN, are my faves. The Ghana one is just so there. As I said, it's huge and it's the one and only original artwork. Whether it is a legitimate piece that was actually used to advertise the movies or not,I do not know. But it's still just awesome to look at in real life.

TED: Yes, the Ghana is HUGE (to me). I'm used to one sheets. By and large, that has been my thing all along. I have no way to measure it at the moment, but I stuck a one sheet and measured it up at the lower left corner and you can see how far above and to the right it goes in the photo below (excuse the mess around it. Ha!):

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/size%20compare_zpsbe9muqfv.jpg)

Somehow it looks even BIGGER in real life. The corpse head on the top right corner is just in-your-face awesome. Wow! I love it.


GINGERMAN: I also dig that Thai BOOGEY MAN. That's my favorite piece from the previous posting. The JAWS 3D is a chirashi, as Jeff says. Not a B2. It's only my 2nd ever Japanese piece...I do not even have it in my hands yet...I have no idea what to expect exactly (I hear it's small though). The Japanese sizes are a complete mystery. We'll BOTH learn about them together.


JEFF: Thank you, as always, for dishing out knowledge and information. Glad you also like the JAWS 3D thing. (B5?  How many sizes do they have and why do they all start with B?)


ARI: Isn't the Ghana stuff fun? So amateurish--but so gonzo cool at the same time... Look them up on line if you get the chance. There are some really amazing ones out there and some really awful/funny ones as well. The cool thing about them--aside from the art in general--is that no two are the same and they are all hand painted. Wowzer! And I've been meaning to ask you... Didn't I read some comment somewhere on here recently where you said you had moved to the most remote town in all of Australia and it was a 6 hour bus ride from the nearest town? WHY would you do that? Hmm...

Anyway, thank you all for stopping by. You are always welcome here.

CHEERS!

Ive seen Ghana posters for years, just never bought one, i should.

re REMOTE, Perth is the capital city of western Australia, which I am 6hrs bus ride away from. And known as the most remote city.
I live south, on the south coast, its very nice down here (where i grew up). (albany)
life is slow and easy, which suits me. But I move a lot. Perth & Sydney usually. haha

re the ORLOF by Jano, I went through a stage of getting as much Jesus Franco Spanish posters as I could. I love his movies.

Hey MAGG... i'm sure Darvishjo (John) will see your thread and might give his thoughts, as well as knowing that artist's sig.

Here's hoping!!  ;D

Hi, thanks!! Dont be impressed! Everyone in Spain knows Jano and why he has this nickname! We are very familiar with  Jano's works. We have two main artist, and he is the best well known one. I went to an exhibition years ago and saw much of his work. It  is easy to identify, trust me, he has a particular style. It will happen to you if you get more of his posters. And I think this poster is soooo good!!

Glad it is in such a safe hands!

Hello!  I have more posters to share from my bum knee, nothing-to-do-but-sit-on-the-terrace-and-shop-with-my-credit-card-that-still has-lots-of-room trip to Maui. (Soooo stupid of me. I'm living in a house of cards that is inching towards total collapse--and I just sit and laugh about it. I just ran to rescue $11.21 from an old bank account I had completely forgotten about that I got a notice from saying they were going to forfeit it to the state if I didn't close it out or make a deposit by today. Ha! Maybe this is my "mid-life crisis"? Ha! I don't know...)

Anyway...

ARI: I looked you up on the map of Australia. Your town still seems like a good-sized town (shows up bigger than other towns on the map). That's good. I thought you were in some desolate, far off place in the back country with a population of about 7 or something. Glad you are at least in a nice, sea-side area.

JEFF: Google IS a wonderful tool. But your inquisitive mind is thoughtful enough to go searching for the info. Most others don't bother. That's why you always get so many kudos for your knowledge (whether it is recently acquired or not). Bravo!

Rosa: Why the nickname Jano? I've since looked him up. Saw him referenced under his real name and nick name--but don't know why the nickname. He does do nice work. Apparently he also did my early 80s WIZARD OF OZ poster I got awhile back as well. Nice! I'll keep an eye out for more. THANKS!

And now, here are 10 more posters I should NOT have purchased---but I'm just stupid that way...


AIRPORT (International version): Darn it all. I totally meant to include this on my last posting to go along with my travel/flight analogy I was making in the narration of my display of international posters. Grrr. Oh well. I'm a ding dong. But anyway, yes! I finally have an English version of the International poster for the original "Airport". I've always preferred this version over the US one sheet. Neither are that exciting really, but the US posters just has large blocks showing the cast. BORING! This one shows the cast, smaller and off to the side. It at least shows an airplane taking off with the title dramatically repeated below it. This is my LEAST favorite of the AIRPORT films. I like the cheesy sequels better. I'm still terrified of flying either way.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Airport%20intl%20version_zpsskmm2qe0.jpg)



HERCULES AND THE TYRANTS OF BABYLON: As I've said elsewhere on my thread, I really dig those old peplum/sword & sandal/ Hercules flicks from the 50s and 60s. I prefer the ones with magic/monsters/etc...those with imagination. The straight dramatic ones are kind of dull--like this one and the one below. However, they seem to be so hard to come by (the US one sheets, at least) that I'll snatch them up if they're the more mundane titles or not. This Hercules stars Rock Stevens, who is actually Peter Lupis from the original "Mission Impossible" series.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hercules%20and%20the%20Tyrants%20of%20Babylon_zpszoywdv9f.jpg)



HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIAN: Another Herc flick. This one is a real snoozer, but as I said above, if I come across one, i'll but it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/hercules_against_the_barbarian_SD01632_T_zpskqd3homx.jpg)



HELP ME... I'M POSSESSED: Oh my stars! What a laugh out loud silly title. How could I NOT buy this little gem? I'm sure the film is crapola-I mean, who has even heard of it? I actually think I have it on DVD--either from Something Weird or a bootleg. I've gotten this poster once before (both copies were super cheap), but the last copy had a hole in it. I'll have to dig the DVD out and give it a watch. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Help%20Me%20Im%20Possessed_zpsuhkjipci.jpg)




CARNIVAL OF CRIME: This poster was also a cheapy. Not many people will have heard of this one either, I imagine. I recognized the poster art as having been recently used in a box set of public domain (?) flicks I watched not too long ago. It was mostly horror flicks, but this movie was included. I don't remember much about it other than it was a crime caper, set in Brazil and in black & white. They kept showing off the city (the capitol Brasilia, I believe), showing how marvelously modern it was. I don't remember the flick that well, but I do remember thinking the city looked quite dull. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Carnival%20of%20Crime_zpshnf96fkz.jpg)


GOLIATHON: This is not an image of the actual poster I got--just something found online to demonstrate. There was never a full photo of mine on the listing, so...  I have the re-release poster as "The Mighty Peking Man", but never the original release as "Goliathon". It's interesting that it totally downplays the giant King Kong-like creature. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Goliathon_zpsug0qeo9w.jpg)


KRAMPUS: If you haven't noticed, I don't buy many new movie posters--or seldom do. I'll get the new Bond poster ("SPECTRE") eventually and any of the horror franchises ("Halloween", "Friday the 13h", "A Nightmare on Elm Street", Romero's "Dead" series, etc.) that come along. But by and large I am not turned on by the newer generation of movie poster. This one is an exception. Wow! I don't know what this is, but I do want to see it now that I know about it. I don't know why it works for me--perhaps because it is an artistic rendering instead of the tired and overused photoshop poster that is constantly in use today? Plus it's a holiday horror---gotta love those (and there have not been many lately).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Krampus_zpsxaelb4fs.jpg)


MARDI GRAS MASSACRE:  Speaking of holiday horrors, this is about the only 80s holiday horror I didn't have yet. I have "Halloween", "Mother's Day", "April Fool's Day", "My Bloody Valentine", "Prom Night", "Graduation Day", etc...but "Mardis Gras Massacre" has always eluded me. Since my trip to New Orleans though, I had to have one--even though the movie is a complete turd-o-rama.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Mardi%20Gras%20Massacre_zpsd7b3v7bf.jpg)


EQUINOX: This is an example photo again--not an actual photo of my poster--but I got this one recently as well. I saw this years ago as a kid. I thought it was cool. I bought it on DVD a few years ago and watched it with friends. It was my first time seeing it in eons. My friends hated it and we watched something else. I later finished watching it and it had not held up. But, for a college film in the late 60s/early 70s, I thought they did a good job. It's just impossible for something like this to compete in today's market. Still, it was a groovy little nugget from my childhood, so...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/equinox_zpsj6o41dvo.jpg)


BLACK LOLITA: Zowie! I love my gimmicks...and 3D is one of the best. The new 3D has a nice clear picture and plenty of depth--but the "coming out at you"-ness of the new 3D is just NOT there like it was in the vintage stuff. You can even see that in the advertising. The new 3D movies just have a little blurb on the credits saying they are in 3D--big deal. But the vintage (80s and back) 3D flicks really sold it in the poster--and this is a great example, with Black Lolita kicking her legs right out of the screen while other characters spill out of the screen further on. I'm sure this 70s (?) sexploitation flick is crappy, but the poster is uber cool--and has long been on my want list.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blacl%20Lolita_zpsgqvfsoae.jpg)

And that's all I've got for today.

CHEERS!

"Jano" is a comic character, a bohemian painter created by Jano when he was 14.

Francisco/ Jano left the comic business and when he started "painting" posters he decided to sign those as "Jano".

Does this help?

And that's all I've got for today.

CHEERS!




MAGG, I think the Yeti takes a back seat to the other lovely creature swinging on the vine.   ;D

"Jano" is a comic character, a bohemian painter created by Jano when he was 14.

Francisco/ Jano left the comic business and when he started "painting" posters he decided to sign those as "Jano".

Does this help?


 :)

I love info like this.
Thanks, Rosa.

re EQUINOX

1) love the poster.
2) LOVE the film.
3) its BETTER than The Evil Dead (which it inspired).

EQUINOX is one of my favorite posters from that era.
Glad you got one for your psychotronic collection.

I'm B-A-C-K with more of my recent purchasing madness to share!

But first...

STEVE: Glad you like "BLACK LOLITA". I am a total sucker for those old posters that are for 3D flicks. That one IS a find! Thanks!

110x75:  Why the interest in CARNIVAL OF CRIME all of a sudden? Why are you now wanting to collect paper on it? Is it because it is Brazilian? Hmm.

JEFF: Re: GOLIATHON. I agree with you. The monster/giant yeti thing IS taking a backseat to the jungle girl. Can you imagine guys who want to see the jungle girl getting annoyed with the whole Yeti thing? And those who wanted a monster flick thinking...is this a female Tarzan movie? Pass! I'd personally rather have a GIANT monster (i.e. KING KONG or another title below) on a poster than a jungle girl, but that's because my taste in posters tends to run that of an 8 year old kid! Ha!

TED: Yes. Rosa is a wonderful help on here. I'm also glad you approve of my "EQUINOX"! Whoo hoo! I've wanted one for years!

ARI: Glad you are so passionate about "EQUINOX". Really, not many people know the movie these days. I do realize it inspired "The Evil Dead". I like it--bought the poster, didn't I?--but the night I watched it (or tried to watch it) with my friends and they found it dull, I realized that, for me, it hadn't aged well. I still think, as I said, for a little college film from the late 60's/early 70s, it is amazing. But it's "creaky", ya know? Dated. You really have to be in the right frame of mind to watch it these days (at least I do if I were to watch it again). Glad you totally dig it though. I have a soft spot for it, that's for sure. But it's not as awesome to me as it once was.

Now to more of my gotta-be-off-my-feet-and-there's-nothing-to-do-but-poster-hunt shopping madness! EEK!  Hang on!

OOPS! I totally forgot about these other international tidbits...

From Poland, my first POLISH posters:


WOMEN DOCTORS:  I know NOTHING about this movie--never heard of it--but what a wild image! Those Poles (is that how you spell it? Pols?) have some bizarre-O posters!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/polish_large_women_doctors_SD03260_C_zpsxg0ffacv.jpg)


CHILD'S SCENES OF PROVINCIAL LIFE: Speaking of bizarre-O posters, dig this Polish poster for something called CHILD'S SCENES OF PROVINCIAL LIFE. Huh? Lips biting other lips. What ARE they sniffing in Poland? Jeepers!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/polish_large_childs_scenes_of_provincial_life_lips_style_SD03259_C_zpsh8kqmjm7.jpg)



From Turkey (and that reminds me, Happy belated Canadian Thanksgiving! Ha!)

JAWS: Zowie! Once I got myself (finally) a US "JAWS" one sheet, the Turkish version was immediately in my sites. Why? How could it not be with the shark actually EATING a swimmer! Ha! Now the naked girl on the US version is all fine and dandy (How many books did that cover sell alone do you imagine?), but having it actually EAT someone--wow! That's what it's all about.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/JAWS%20Turkish_zpslyvz9r3h.jpg)


PIRANHA:  I LOVED the original PIRANHA! For a little low-budget JAWS rip-off, it was fun, had some great tension and some nifty effects. I already have the US one sheet (they used to be soooo cheap!), but always wanted something with this funky alternate artwork. This Turkish one will do.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Piranha%20Turkish_zpsd8ohgdmb.jpg)


ZOMBIE: I also have the US one sheet for "Zombie", but thought since I was getting those other Turkish posters, I'd just snap this one up too. Different art--not the greatest, but not bad.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Zombie%20Turkish_zpsnrr0blp9.jpg)


Back here in the US, I picked up a '70s Harry Reems porn poster, "THE FLASHER": I don't remember what I was thinking when I picked this up. I've never seen it, but it does star Harry Reems (still milking the DEEP THROAT/DEVIL IN MISS JONES notoriety. Isn't he dead now?) and is one of those probably hard to find 70s porn titles from before home video. I don't know--just thought it may be worth something some day.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Flasher_zpsp9fxtzwd.jpg)


MUTINY IN OUTER SPACE: This looks like cheesy fun...and it's a Wolner Brothers Production, so it must be deliciously second rate. Ha! Look at the guy and girl trying to grab a ride (?) on the giant space tentacle! What the heck is that? Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mutiny_in_outer_space_dupe4_BM04317_C_zpslholkqhy.jpg)


ROBOCOP: Yeah... the ROBOCOP series never did it for me. I saw the original and its two sequels in the theaters just because it was something to do--but didn't bother with the recent remake. I just got this, the one sheet for the original movie, as an investment for down the road...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/robocop_ES00149_C_zpsvvxnbkl0.jpg)



MAY: Oh my stars! Have you seen this flick? Not many people have. I love this quirky little horror movie. It stars Angela Bettis (and the was before the TV "Carrie" remake she was in). She's deliciously awkward and psycho. Odd little movie--but not to everyone's taste. Check it out (or don't). I'm just thrilled to have the one sheet for it. Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/may_KM00745_T_reshoot_C_zpsvzxietqx.jpg)


REPTILICUS: Zowie!  It's another super groovy vintage monster movie poster. Yahoo! I've wanted a REPTILICUS for ages. Sure, it's a poster for a poor man's GODZILLA, but this poor man will never be able to afford a poster for the original GODZILLA!  I have to settle for the knock-offs, and I LOVE the posters for them any way!  Yippie! Yippie!  Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Reptilicus_zps3swlrm2c.jpg)


And now, the bed is calling... Good night! Thank you ever so much for popping by.

CHEERS!

Completely understand re Equinox, and you are right, it could be timing, sometimes I rewatch a film and think WTF, then re-rewatch and GET IT AGAIN, all about mood on the day (plus watching with people who like it Vs people who dont makes a difference).

Nice new haul. especially the  Polish

Because it's partly argentinean  ;)
The interest is not sudden. Got my eyes on paper on the film a while ago, but it always gets left behind for other poster priorities. Oh, the struggle!!  ;D

Howdy!  Too much sugar in my system (damn mini candy bars for Halloween. I'm supposed to be making little treat package surprises for friends--not eating the treats!  Ha!). So---you get MORE of my poster purchasing frenzy!

But first...

ARI: So glad you understand about frame of mind, etc. I may have to watch EQUINOX again soon (if I can find it--Ha!) Glad you like my Polish posters. My first... They are so --DIFFERENT!

ROSA: Eye candy? Okay--NO calories in looking! Yippie!  Glad you like REPTILICUS and EQUINOX. Cheers!

MATIAS: Ah, you are into all things Argentine? How cool. I had no idea CARNIVAL OF CRIME was a co-Argentine production. The things you learn here...

JEFF: Hmm. My official guess is...  It's one from the last 10 posters I posted?  I am going to guess it's the Turkish JAWS poster???  Well????

STEVE: Zowie! Reptilicus is cool, but you are also groovin' on MUTINY IN OUTER SPACE? Awesome--and thank you. Have you seen it? Is it as cheesy as it looks? Astounding adventure from the center of the moon!  Golly!  

And now on to the posters...


MOVIE STAR AMERICAN STYLE:  Ha! Look at this silly poster. A fake Marilyn and "Hilarious scenes in LSD color." Oh my!  I need to see this film, I think. Looks like a hoot.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/movie_star_american_style_or_lsd_i_hate_you_BM04687_C_zpsreamrbff.jpg)


DRIVE-IN MASSACRE: Ugh. I remember when this poster was a dime a dozen. Now--not so cheap. Luckily I got this in a bulk lot of posters. Not the greatest poster on the planet, by far. But I sort of wanted it (especially since drive-ins are all but gone these days...) and could kick myself for not getting it back in the cheap days. Filmed entirely in bloodcurdling gore color! Yowza!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Drive%20In%20Massacre_zpsxwshugsb.jpg)



HOSPITAL MASSACRE: Another bulk lot piece. Nothing exciting really although it does star Barbi Benton--any one remember her? Ha! Also known as "X-RAY" and apparently THIS is the film that was advertised at the end of "NEW YEARS EVIL" as being "BE MY VALENTINE...OR ELSE"! (That mystery is finally solved!) I've nbever seen it though, but from what I have read I ain't missing much.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/hospital_massacre_zpsis00pel2.jpg)



BLOOD DINER: I saw this back in the VHS era...and didn't like it. I was expecting something--I don't know what--and all I got was a lame horror comedy. Snore. BUT the poster graphics are way cool and who knew it ever had a theatrical release? Hmm...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blood%20Diner_zpsbwriix6k.jpg)



SPIRIT OF SEVENTY-SEX:  Okay--I have a couple of porn titles. Not my usual thing, but... I've not seen this, but I thought the spoof of the patriotic trio was clever and this clearly dates back to the 1970s. This is NOT my poster. The photo with the listing had problems. This was the best alternative I could find online.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/8253969684_17346bda78_n_zpsaww3qgih.jpg)



VASELINE ALLEY: Another porn I have not seen. I think this may be 80s. Why did I get it? Well, aside from the sleazy title--eew!--I thought it was rather odd for a straight porn film to be hyping the appearance of a Burt Reynolds look-a-like. Really? Guys want to see a Burt Reynolds clone in action? Uh... kind of doubt it. How many films did Burt Dreynolds do any way? I'm guessing not too many. Interesting curio though. But the real reason i bought it was because it made me laugh. YEARS ago, a friend and I visited the long-gone Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park. At one point during the route through the museum, you had to stop and have your picture taken (for purchase at the end of the museum if you chose) with some guy. He walked up to me, shook my hands and said "Hi.I double for Burt Reynolds". He never even said his real name--he was just some schmo the museum had hired (wouldn't a wax figure have been easier/more appropriate?). My friend and I laughed about that for days (and no, we did not buy the photos with him). I don't think it was him, but part of me wonders if Burt Dreynolds was the dude from the wax museum. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vaseline%20Alley_zps4fjxbqpz.jpg)


CHATTERBOX:  Easing away from the porn, we get this movie that was clearly inspired by DEEP THROAT--but went the other direction. CHATTERBOX is the story of a woman who has an extra voice box (with a mind of its own, too, apparently) down "there". It's an R-Rated comedy. I've never seen it (but have seen the trailer  Steve, this is for you...maybe? https://youtu.be/41IsnJUOVgo (https://youtu.be/41IsnJUOVgo) ). It looks god awful and I've heard it is...but I almost want to see it. Ha!  


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/chatterbox_SD03133_T_zpsqq87lgyo.jpg)


WARRIOR OF THE LOST WORLD:  This "MAD MAX" ripoff was cheap. I've never seen it, but there were a lot of those post apocalyptic flicks in the 80s (mostly Italian). Hmm. Could be trashy fun.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Warriors%20of%20the%20Lost%20World_zpshdxpg4ic.jpg)



FLIGHT TO TANGIER: This also makes me think of Steve...another vintage 3D poster. But the poster makes me laugh, too. I've never seen the flick--but the title FLIGHT TO TANGIER is very pronounced on the poster...and the male lead, at least at first glance, looks like he has his arms out and is running around playing like he is an airplane, like kids sometimes do. That cracks me up (or maybe I'm just THAT tired?).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/flight_to_tangier_d_HN03162_C_zpsodi0v21t.jpg)


KING KONG ESCAPES: Finally--giant monster time again...times TWO!  KING KONG ESCAPES features not only KONG but also his mechanical twin MECHA-KONG!  Ha! I already have a copy, but this was only $15. How is that possible? I couldn't let it slip away that cheap. I'll have to compare it to my other copy and eventually re-sell one. LOVE my KONG movies/posters though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20Kong%20Escapes_zpsqaxewzjk.jpg)

Okay--has my sugar rush subsided? Hopefully.

Nighty night, pussycats!

STEVE: Perhaps you are right. He is coming at her from behind. Perhaps that's where the tag line--Astounding Adventure From The Center of the Moon--comes from. SHOCKING!

TED: Scour some some cinematic dumpsters indeed. I totally dig the poster too. It has a wonderful sleazy feel to it. I'd really love to see the flick. I wonder if it's been unearthed and is available? I'll have to look...

MATIAS: How cool being in Argentina! This will seem dumb, since I have not seen many (any?) Argentine (Argentinian?) films, but one of my favorite flicks is set in Argentina. Maybe you've seen it? "Apartment Zero"? Cool little flick--about a guy obsessed with movies and a drifter. (Neither are from Argentina, now that I think about it. Hmm.)

JEFF: Yes, the great Albert Zugsmith! Ha! I was going to just laugh him off as a great nobody with a silly name. WHO has ever heard of him? But then I looked him up and I am familiar with his other work (He actually has other work! Ha!) He actually produced Orson Welles' "TOUCH OF EVIL" (!), "THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN", "THE BEAT GENERATION", "HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL", and directed "SEX KITTENS GO TO COLLEGE" and "CONFESSIONS OF AN OPIUM EATER" among others. Zowie--I used your Google super powers!  Look out! Ha!

Here's the MOVIE STAR AMERICAN STYLE trailer:  https://youtu.be/3DpTmvmz-u4 

Looks AWFUL! (Which is sooooo disappointing.) LSD COLOR is just tinted black and white. Whoopie...

It appears to be some wannabe screw ball comedy. I was hoping for a low-budget drama with unintentional laughs from campy dialogue and bad acting, a poor man's "Valley of the Dolls" (which is campy in itself). Oh well.

Still might have to track it down and see it. Hmm.

The poster is still groovy.

Cheers!

Okay.. My splurge is winding down. I've got enough new posters for this posting and then maybe one more (possibly two) and then I'm out for a while again. (Heavy sigh...)

Anyway, ladies and gents, here are tonight's offerings...


HOUSE OF THE CRAZIES / ASYLUM:  This is a re-titled re-release poster for the Amicus (I think) horror anthology "ASYLUM" written by Robert Bloch and featuring Peter Cushing. I have always preferred this re-release poster (and title) to the original.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/asylum_R80_retitled_WC02097_C_zpssffzd5jk.jpg)


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (Yugoslavian): I almost passed on this poster...and maybe should have. It's kind of dull and sedate (purposely, i think). The part I liked about it were Freddy's claws seemingly cutting through the poster. It looks almost 3D. This is also supposedly a Yugoslavian poster--which this my first Yugo.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street%20Yugo_zpsjezngivy.jpg)


NAKED AND CRUEL WORLD (?): I think I translated that title correctly, but I've never heard of this flick. I wish I read Spanish. Oh well. It LOOKS like a mondo flick, possibly showing some of the more shocking things supposedly happening on the planet we may not even be thinking about. Oh my star! Why did I buy this? Well, looking at the bottom photo on the poster, I was initially stuck by the bloody body being eaten by the clearly fake alligator/crocodile. Ha! Looking at the upper picture, it dawned on me that I had just seen that exact same shot...in some stupid cannibal flick I had just watched a week or so earlier. Ha!  Clearly this mondo doc is fake, Fake, FAKE!!! At least the poster was cheap, Cheap, CHEAP!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Naked%20and%20Cruel%20World_zpsuizhatam.jpg)


HIGH TEST GIRLS: Never saw the flick, but the poster is kind of fun and has some good color. Plus I thought Steve would like it. You always gotta have something to post for Steve. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/High%20Test%20Girls_zpsco7gc7by.jpg)


MONA: I don't know what this is, never saw it, and really don't care about it at all. But, if I'm going to pad out this posting, er, um... If I'm going to share my complete collection, I should post everything that comes my way. This poster was included as part of a lot. There's no other reason for it to be here.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Mona_zpssymzckk9.jpg)


THE SWORD OF THE BARBARIANS: Yesterday i posted a poster for an Italian "MAD MAX" clone. Now here's an Italian "Conan" clone. Never saw this, but it was kind of fun and why not. It's NOT quiet a Hercules/sword&sandal/peplum flick from the 50s/60s, but I think it wants to be. Whatever--another cheapo for the pile.

THE MINES OF KILIMANJARO: At first I thought this was one of those Richard Chamberlain 'Allen Quatermane' (spelling?) adventures from the 80s and almost passed it over. I probably should have passed it over anyway. Ha! I don't know quite what this is. It stars Christopher Connelly and is directed by Mark War (?). I'm guessing it is an Italian production...but the poster, while in English, I would almost bet was printed internationally--and is not a US one sheet. Just another cheap curio I could have (and should have) done without.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Mines%20of%20Kilimanjaro_zpsos93ee5a.jpg)


A CLOCKWORK BLUE: I have no idea what this is. An early porn flick? Although women clearly are in it, the cast list mentions only two guys--one guy who is also the director (Eric Jeffrey Haims! Zowie! WHO?) and some other guy, Joe E. Tata, who is probably the director's best pal. Two bad they weren't brothers, then they could have said the film was staring "the Tatas" and maybe gotten a bigger audience. Who knows? I bought it because I dig the colors, liked that it was a title parody, and also because it has "Orbital Cinematography in Eastman Color and UltraSonic Sound". Groovy.

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 5: A NEW BEGINNING (Turkish): Even though this may be my least favorite of the "Friday the 13th" films, when i stumbled upon this poster I was pleasantly surprised by how different it was. I had never seen it before--and Jason is almost an after thought off to the side. Nothing great--but interesting and part of an iconic horror series (which, let's face it, has had pretty awful one sheets for most of the series--at least parts 2 through 5 for sure).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Friday%20the%2013th%20Part%205%20A%20New%20Beginning%20Turkish_zps0cl9zmiw.jpg)


FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 6: JASON LIVES: I found this one in the same place as the other FRIDAY THE 13TH poster. This is part 6--again, very different art (for what is probably my favorite in the series, maybe). Again, why not since it is for such an iconic series and the art is far different than I've ever seen for it. After I bought it though, I discovered the same (?) art was used on the Italian version and just borrowed by the Turkish. Hmm. Not sure about the Part 5 poster I got, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the same story there as well. But I already bought them. What can you do?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Friday%20the%2013th%20Part%206%20Jason%20Lives%20Turkish_zps0mbnx7vk.jpg)


So this wasn't the greatest batch of posters. Eh! I've got a jewel in the next batch I post though. It's not an original release, but I'll never be able to get one of those. But this sloppy second release I am more than pleased/satisfied with and have crossed it off my Bucket List. What is it? Come back and see... I'll post it in a day or so or...whenever.


And now--bed time. HOPEFULLY I can sleep tonight.

CHEERS!

MATIAS: How cool being in Argentina! This will seem dumb, since I have not seen many (any?) Argentine (Argentinian?) films, but one of my favorite flicks is set in Argentina. Maybe you've seen it? "Apartment Zero"? Cool little flick--about a guy obsessed with movies and a drifter. (Neither are from Argentina, now that I think about it. Hmm.)

"the notoriously awful "At Long Last Love" (Burt Reynolds singing and dancing? Ouch--just the thought of it is painful)"

^ Thanks for sharing. It just made me smile. ;D

Hey Rosa, I am quoting you way back from the first (?) page of my thread, in response to my AT LONG LAST LOVE poster. While I do not think the film has been released on DVD/Blu Ray, you might be thrilled to know that the soundtrack IS being released soon, so you can sway and swoon (and CRINGE) to Burt Reynolds' vocal stylings!

It's too bad they don't have excerpts you can play. EEEK!

OOO!  I just looked on YouTube. Here is a perfect example for you. Here is Madeline Kahn and Burt singing and dancing their way through "You're The Top". Cybil Shepherd is the female lead in the film, but Kahn and Eileen Brennan are along for support.

ENJOY (if you can stomach it).

Haha thanks for the pics Magg.  Glad you got to visit and spend time and not a dime.  What a great setting for a poster store. 
Did you chat it up with the owner?  Bio on his website is quite interesting..Always curious to know what kind of good folk run these places.

Actually, I did talk to the employees briefly. They were trying to make a sale--not chit chat. I was, of course, in eye candy heaven. They asked how I found the place and I said a friend online had sent me. They thought I must have meant the owner. No, I said, just a friend--because I didn't want to go into the whole APF explanation (although maybe I should have. I keep forgetting it's not just movie posters). They did have some beautiful things though. Oh my stars! They also had a few movie posters--but everything was on linen. My friends dragged me away far too quickly as they wanted to go to Fleetwood's (a restaurant above the poster store as well as a gift shop/gallery on the first floor owned by Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac. Snore. I wanted to go back to the poster shop! But the shop IS in a beautiful location. Walk out the front door, look across the street and there is the ocean! I also think one of the nearby islands is visible, too. WOW!

Matias, Apartment Zero is quite good.
Not only was it filmed in Argentina, but it was directed by Buenos Aires-born Martin Donovan (Carlos Enrique Valera Y Peralta-Ramos).
Its been years since I saw it, but I remember it was tense and well-played.

My last posting was not that exciting.This one has some duds in it too, but also has a super coup (well, for ME it is) that I am very excited about. But my spending spree has pretty much wound down. I have ONE more post after this and then I'm out for a while again.  But let's see what I have now:

INFERNO (Turkish): I've been wanting a poster for Argento's "INFERNO" for a long, long time. I was holding out for a US one sheet, but there never seemed to be any available (of course, I've since found out that even though it was planned to have a US release, it NEVER did. Ha!). This is the Turkish release--and they've taken the basic Italian art and added a few things. I probably should have just went with the Italian (If I could find one), but this is what was available when I was looking.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Inferno%20Turkiah_zpspartcp41.jpg)


DAMIEN: OMEN II (Turkish):  The US version is sooo blah. This is much more interesting. I still want to get the Turkish poster for the first "OMEN" flick. I haven't seen the posters for 3 & 4...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Damien%20Omen%202%20Turkish_zps5q711q9q.jpg)


DUEL (Spanish):  I was also hoping for a US one sheet of this flick. I know it was a TV movie, but I do also know it later had a theatrical release. I got the Spanish version. Whoohoo.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Duel%20Spanish_zpsqv6yxrgb.jpg)


FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (Spanish): I already have the US (80s re-release) version, but stumbled upon this Spanish one that was not too expensive. Why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/From%20Russia%20With%20Love%20Spain_zps6mhzfzuw.jpg)


BATMAN (Spanish): The 60s BATMAN has been on my mind a lot lately (probably because I am re-watching the series again on DVD--Ha!) I really want the US one sheet, but have yet to get one. Saw this 1979 Spanish re-release and thought what the heck?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Batman%2079%20Spanish_zpsgp859do1.jpg)


BATMAN (Begian): Then I saw this gorgeously colored Belgian version. Ooooo. Sold!  This is not the actual poster I got. The photo of it was funky, so I borrorwed this photo from the internet in its place. Pow! Bam! Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Batman%20Belgian_zpsf9mgyvb6.jpg)


LINDA LOVELACE FOR PRESIDENT: This is the dud o' the day. I have no idea why I felt compelled to by this. Snore...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/linda_lovelace_for_president_SD03408_C_zpsmsxnmq23.jpg)



FOR YOUR EYES ONLY: I know i have all of the Bond posters (with the exception of the new SPECTRE). However, my copies of this one and one other have flaws that I can NOT live with so I need to replace them. I have probably already replaced them...but I'm not sure. Hmm. I have this one now--and it's posted here--so I can refer back and see it and not bid on any others in the future. That leaves just one more to track down (if I haven't done so already) AND the Spectre poster...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/for_your_eyes_only_BM04741_C_zpsa2nrzrgl.jpg)


THE STRANGER WORE A GUN:  Another vintage 3D poster from the 50s! Yippie! Kind of lackluster--and I'm not big on westerns, but whatever.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/stranger_wore_a_gun_d_SD03415_C_zpsbnupygmm.jpg)


PSYCHO: Okay--so it's a re-release. But it's in great shape and I'll never get an original. I fought hard to get this one too. Yikes!  Spent more than i meant to, but wanted/needed it. Now I just need to sell my house so i can pay for it. Ha!

POSTER TIME!!!!!

This first batch I ordered from everyone's pal Ari. I wasn't going to post them just yet--I was going to wait until they arrived. But I decided to share with the new guy, "e", my very first locandina (did I spell that right?), which I got from the A man.


Here' the locandina (sp?).

BARRACUDA: I'm a sucker for a lot of things, movie gimmicks, bad sequels no one has ever heard of or remembers, disaster flicks, 3D, and "JAWS" knock offs, to name a few. "Barracuda" falls into the latter category. Although it's kind of dull (zzzzz..), there's still the poster (which is also, well, kind of dull). I have elsewhere in my thread an Italian (I don't know what they're called..) 1 piece (like a one sheet?) with some different art than the US poster...and then I spied this locandina that I really like. Instead of just being a menacing fish in the water, this time the barracuda has a head in its mouth! Yowza! How exciting! (More exciting than the film itself! Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Barracuda%20locandina_zpsobyhbjeh.jpg)


THE DOCTOR AND THE DEVILS (Australian one sheet):  Never heard of this one--but probably everyone has. It looked interesting and wasn't too expensive, so why not? Thanks again Ari.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Doctor%20and%20the%20Devils%20Australian_zpsrk1zvrpk.jpg)


JOURNEY INTO BLISS:  This one really excited me...and I've never seen the film, but judging by the poster I really want/need to. It looks like some weird, crazy, experimental grooviness. Ari, I think, said his friend made the movie--or was involved with it somehow. Interesting and apparently very little paper on it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Journey%20Into%20Bliss_zpsfnpsiffb.jpg)



RABID (Thai):  Ari had several Thai posters. I almost couldn't decide...but went with Cronenberg's "RABID". It's so different than the US poster (with the body stuffed in the refrigerator--LOVE that one, too). I hadn't seen this Thai yet, so opted for it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Rabid%20Thai_zpsrg9lyi7u.jpg)


Thank you, ARI!!!!!


Speaking of Thai (the RABID poster), I also picked up these:


PUPPET MASTER: The first thing I noticed when i saw this poster was the ghastly, bloody (?) mouth in the center of the poster. Was this some zombie flick? No--it's PUPPET MASTER! Ha!  Cool art though...and what is mind-blowing also is that it actually played theaters in Thailand (instead of going straight to video like it did here). Ha! Gingerman, you just posted this. I didn't say anything then--saving it for now. But we can be Thai poster twinsies! Ha! You've got GREAT TASTE!  happy1


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Puppetmaster%20Thai_zpslaghr1lx.jpg)


THE BELIEVERS:  Okay, so this voodoo movie is a little less than interesting. Normally I'd have passed over this poster...but the Thai version---WOW! It has so much going on. Why can't US posters be more interesting? Had THE BELIEVERS had this poster, it might have made a little more money here (or not--because it was still kind of a dud).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Believers%20Thai_zpscmi4cc5i.jpg)


PRIMITIF:  I know. I know. ANOTHER cannibal movie poster. This time from Thailand. Wow! Gruesomely cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Primitif%20Thai_zpsmsfopixo.jpg)


EVIL DEAD 2: See why I need your posters Gingerman? You have EVIL DEAD 1...and I have the sequel! Again, may I say you have GREAT TASTE! Zowie! These Thai posters --especially for horror flicks--really rock! There are so many cool ones out there I need to get. They MUST be mine. Ha! If anything would inspire gonzo Thai art it's an EVIL DEAD movie.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Evil%20Dead%202%20Thai_zpsb0wal4fk.jpg)

Back to US one sheets, I have two more to share:


THE LAST PARADISE:  I wanted this after my trip to Hawaii. Almost as big of an obsession as posters are for me is tiki culture (as in tiki bars). Once I'm back in a house, I want to turn a spare room into a home tiki bar! I thought this poster, done up in a bamboo frame, would look swell in my tiki bar-to-be. Steve, if you are reading this, there are (gasp!) topless native chicks in this fully showing their, uh...coconuts! OH MY!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Last%20Paradise_zps5uarqgow.jpg)



THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION: Finally, no collection is complete without some gratuitous cheez-o-rama! EEK! THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION!!!  What a deliriously silly little bit o' low-budget '70s drive-in splendor! There is even a giant spider (a not so cleverly disguised Volkswagen) with wheels, if you look carefully enough! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Giant%20Spider%20Invasion_zpsfipgfavp.jpg)

I actually really like that Barracuda locandina(yes you're spelling it right, locandine is the plural form btw) it's has me a bit intrigued about the film. If the other poster is similarly sized to a US one sheet than it's a soggettone or un folgio.

I really like those Thai posters, the more I see Thai posters the more I want to add some to my collection.

TED and ROSA: Thanks for popping by. Glad you like the new stuff. Cheers!

STEVE: Ooooo you dig the 3D stuff too. The new one isn't the most exciting, but--I'll take it. And yes, having a PSYCHO finally (even a re-release) is super. Another thing I can cross off the big list. Thanks for looking.


JEFF: Yes, the Thai stuff has really captured my attention. UGH! I could just kick myself for being so narrow minded for sooooo many years and just buying nothing but US one sheets. Think of all of the beautiful posters I missed out on (and all of the really cheap-o-rama prices, too. International posters were a dime a dozen five or ten years ago).


e: Glad the BARRACUDA locandina intersts you and makes you want to see the flick. It's doing its job then, apparently. However unless you really, really want to see it, you would probably be better off passing. It's kind of dull. (Kind of? It IS dull.)  Also thanks for the Italian poster education. I won't remember. It will take me a zillion years to get that down--but I appreciate the effort.

CRAZY VICK:  Oh my stars! How good to see you. You have not been by to visit since the end of August. I was getting kind of worried...  Glad you like some of my stuff and interesting choices (well, some of them) as to your favorites. Anyway,it's nice having your crazy self around again Soooo groovy to hear from you.

CHEERS!

GoGo

Puppet Master is indeed such a great poster. The movie is kinda creepy, I haven't seen it in years but it leaves a mark on you when you see it...imho.. of course.     See I need Evil Dead 2, and you need the first one. We have a set between us! You got that Rabid from Ari? That is a nice poster!  I love your stuff man, so much good stuff. As you would say Zowie!!!

Hey Gingerman! Glad you made back over to my page. I thought it was so neat-O that we were BOTH posting PUPPET MASTER on the same day and each had an EVIL DEAD poster as well as other Thai posters. You may be my long-lost poster child (Ha! That does NOT sound right--like you have an affliction or something--but you know what I was going for. Ha!).

Glad you like my stuff. I dig yours, too pal! Keep at it. Glad to have you here.

Cha-cha-cha!

Cheers-a-rama!

Over and out!

Well, here's another mixed bag of recent posters. Joy...

TRAPPED (Thai)---Never heard of this and the poster over all is kind of ho-hum...except for the one guy getting the axe to his head and his eyeball popping out. Zowie! That's gotta hurt. Those wonderful wacky Thais! 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Trapped%20Thai_zpsijmna7tk.jpg)


DAWN OF THE DEAD (Thai):  Another Thai...and purchased fairly (surprisingly) cheap. Hmm. That has me worried. We'll see what it's like when it finally arrives. If all is good, I'm super pumped to get this. Yowza!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dawn%20of%20the%20Dead%20Thai_zpsxjnijgc9.jpg)


SAVAGE WEEKEND:  I already have a copy of this, but this went pretty cheap, so... I snagged it. I've never seen the movie, but did recently buy it (just re-released on dvd and blu ray).I've heard it's crap though. Well see. Yet another early 80s slasher. It couldn't find a holiday to use so it generically went for just the WEEKEND (eeek!) to terrorize. Ha! It's still a cool image--the masked guy holding the bloody sickle and doing the Uncle Sam "I Want You" pose. I had this framed and in my guest room (since most guests came on weekends. Ha!). Waaagh! I want to be in a house again. Maybe if I just stopped buying posters... Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Savage%20Weekend_zpsqx8nxovt.jpg)


VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (Belgian):  I think I mentioned this elsewhere when i got the French version of this movie poster... La Vallee des Poupees sounds like it's about diarrhea! I'm sure most film critics of the day were calling this movie poopie---or something close to it. Ha! I am a huge VOD fan. It's awful/wonderful (especially Patty Duke--so over the top, especially after she gets "famous"! Ha!), so i couldn't resist.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/valleyofdolls-be_zpssud0f0ze.jpg)


MANIAC:   I also already have this. But it was such a bargain...I just couldn't NOT get it. I stumbled upon it on some website of some guy who was selling posters. He had apparently had the site up for a long while and had priced the posters sometime back. Bargain! This is a much sought after piece for 80s horror gorehounds. Nice to have a spare for a rainy day.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/maniac-trifold_zpsgrkcr3wv.jpg)



TARZAN AND THE LOST CITY:  You know by now I dig my Tarzan movies (or maybe I got all of my Tarzan posters before I joined APF?). While the oldest ones are beyond my reach, I have the bulk of the ones since Gordon Scott took over on up through the Bo Derek version. I kept putting this poster off--I'm not sure why. I saw this film in the theater (as i said, I like my Tarzan flicks), but had trouble with Caspar Van Dien in the role. I had the chance to meet him once. He was just a few feet away from me, but...eh. I didn't want to be bothered with the encounter. Now that many years have passed, I think i can revisit this film and give it another whirl. We'll see. Enough time has passed though where I feel comfortable getting the poster (finally). And isn't there a new Tarzan coming soon?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tarzan_and_the_lost_city_KM00721_C_zpsimmlgnuk.jpg)


GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE:  Ugh...I told you this was a mixed bag today. Ha! When i was getting the TARZAN poster above, i saw this one as well. CHEAP. While NOT a TARZAN film, it certainly is Tarzan-esque (and clearly inspired by the mighty jungle swinger), so I got it. Eh. (I don't even know/remember if I ever even bothered seeing the movie or not).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/george_of_the_jungle_KM00721_C_zpsgilvyahv.jpg)


SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE 3:  Funny thing about this poster. I saw it and thought, I didn't even know there was a sequel to the original. I have the first poster. i'll get this one and then track down the 2nd one and then I'll have the whole series. Except the first one I THOUGHT I had was actually for SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE. Oops! Two different 80s slasher series--and I somehow never saw either of them. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/slumber_party_massacre_3_dupe2_KM00738_C_zpscldb66eo.jpg)


THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (lenticular):  Another poster I already had...but again found it at an amazingly cheap price. SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Day%20After%20Lenticular_zpssw4q3wxx.jpg)


MY BLOODY VALENTINE (English): Last one for tonight, this is the English one sheet for the early 80s (1981?) holiday slasher MY BLOODY VALENTINE. It has very different art work than the US one sheet. I had seen this image before and always wondered where it was used before. Now i know. Except why does it look like they are in a subway tunnel instead of a mine shaft?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/english_1sh_my_bloody_valentine_SD00968_C_zpsusmlnwm9.jpg)


And that's posters for today.

This is such a freaky film...really good. Or I thought it was good...mind you..couldn't sleep in days!
And the poster is a "classic"...for sure!!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on October 22, 2015, 06:17:27 PM
I'm B-A-C-K!  

Hi JEFF and ROSA. Thanks for stopping by. ROSA, I am surprised you liked the original MANIAC. But for what it is, it IS good...and the poster is definitely memorable. Thanks for noticing.

Any way, here is yet another mixed bag of new acquisitions...eh. It's almost not even worth posting, but...  Here we go anyway!


THE OMEN (Turkish):  Oooooo. I just got the Turkish "DAMIEN: OMEN II", but what I really wanted was the original Turkish "Omen". It's so much more interesting than the US. It kind of reminds me of the Thai posters (I wonder if there was a Thai poster for "The Omen"? Hmm.) Well, tuh-DUH!!!! I finally HAVE the Turkish poster for "THE OMEN"!  Yippie!  (Now i wonder what the Turkish "Omen III" is like. i've never seen one of those. Probably not nearly as interesting...)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Omen_zpsfhupnvx6.jpg)


THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE:   I'm not 100% sure, but I could almost swear I saw this movie on one of those  crappy/cheap-O 10 (or 25 or 50) movies for $5 DVD sets. If I did see it, it was not that memorable. I don't recall it at all. But I have long thought the poster was creepy enough with the skull-faced woman holding a decapitated head. The worms are waiting...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Night%20Evelyn%20Came%20Out%20of%20the%20Grave_zps9i6akioy.jpg)


THE SADIST:  I already have one of these, but I saw this one going cheap and I just couldn't let that happen. So i snatched it up. This is a weird little low budget flick--kind of laugh out loud unintentionally funny with D-list (Z-list?) star Arch Hall Jr in the lead. I do dig the poster too.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Sadist%20B_zpsnagznq4g.jpg)



STONE COLD DEAD:  I never saw this flick, but I do remember when it played in theaters. i was about in the 8th grade and I really wanted to go based on the commercials and the ads in the paper (smaller versions of this one sheet). It's probably a crappy movie--and in the newspaper ads, you really couldn't tell that the body in the shower was of a young shapely woman. oh my! I've not bothered to chase down the film. The one sheet is enough of a reminder of those youthful days.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/stone_cold_dead_ES00190_C_zpsejugrt1i.jpg)


VOLCANO (teaser):  I like my disaster flicks--I do. The ones from the 70s were the best. I already have the "VOLCANO" one sheet, but this was a teaser. While I wasn't wild about the finished film, it was okay. The teaser was uber cheap--why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/volcano_KM00721_C_zps308to6jt.jpg)



THE STEPFORD WIVES:  While I am reasonably sure I have one of these, it's always good to have a back up--and this one seemed to be in nice condition. This was a good little movie, kind of forgotten today (the horrible remake didn't help any). Anyone remember the three TV movie sequels? (REVENGE OF THE STEPFORD WIVES, THE STEPFORD CHILFREN, and THE STEPFORD HUSBANDS). Plus, this film featured Katherine Ross and Tina Louise and a downer ending.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/stepford_wives_ES00190_C_zps3lugiqxd.jpg)



SERIAL MOM:  Eh...John Waters' films aren't what they used to be. This is his first or second (when did "CRY BABY" come out again--was that right after "Hairspray" or after this?) post-Divine films. I have this poster already, but this was cheap--and John Waters. Not the best of his films--by far--but not the worst.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/serial_mom_dupe3_SD03208_C_zpst4g0umuv.jpg)



DEAD SPACE: I've never heard of "DEAD SPACE", but I imagine it's gotta be crap (Or I probably would have at least heard of it by now). But when I first saw the poster for this apparently wannabe "ALIEN"rip-off, I laughed. The man in the monster costume, for some reason, reminded me of "Far Out Space Nuts", a really dumb 70s TV show with Bob "Gilligan's Island" Denver lost in a space capsule and encountering different Saturday morning TV monster/aliens each week. I don't know why that popped in my head, but it did. Space trash...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/dead_space_dupe3_SD03208_C_zpsl5d8tuqw.jpg)



MAME:  Speaking of trash, I LOVE my bad movies. But there are some movies I can NOT bring myself to watch. Like the idea of Burt Reynolds singing and dancing has kept me from watching the horror that is "AT LONG LAST LOVE" or Sylvester Stallone's crooning in "RHINESTONE", Lucille Ball's voice has kept me from witnessing the multi-million dollar disaster that is "MAME".  Eek! I do have it on DVD---just have not been delirious enough to pop it in and give it a watch yet. I've posted the trailer below, for those of you with strong stomachs (WARNING: You could possibly be MAMEd for life!). And, yes, I did buy the poster. Cheap.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mame_ES00190_C_zps2gn2vv3h.jpg)



THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD:  Who doesn't love those low budget drive-in flicks from the 50s and early 60s? Well--let me rephrase that (since this movie is a big stinkeroo), who doesn't like the POSTERS from the 50s and early 60s drive in flicks? This one didn't go nearly as high as I thought it might...and became mine. Yippie.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Incredible%20Petrified%20World_zpsgdmq0hkn.jpg)



And that's another batch. Golly. I told you it was really a mixed batch...kind of bottom of the barrel, but there were a few gems in it.

Until next time,

CHEERS!

Nice stuff there, admittedly I haven't seen most of them but great looking posters. I've always loved that "The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave" poster. I haven't actually gotten around to watching it yet, however the DVD is in arm's reach as we speak.

Hey "e"---glad you like my stuff, but I do have a lot of crap as well. The EVELYN poster is cool--I agree--but I am pretty sure I saw the movie and I'm pretty sure I didn't like it. I do not remember it at all. So if you bought/rented/watched it this evening, I hope it was at your own risk!  :-)

Can't wait to see what wonders you come up with next.

Thanks for visiting.

Ah, but I think it's the "crap" I like most though, ha.

And boy oh boy, this movie is surely something. Honestly not sure how I feel about it, far from good yet...hmmm I guess not terrible. I think I will rewatch it at some point before I really develop an opinion.

Oh man I just fell in love with the locandina though:

Oooooo look at that locandina! Very nice. No wonder you had a hankering to see it.

I tell you, I am SURE I saw it. I just have blocked it from my mind. Maybe if I track down a trailer and watch that, it might jog my memory. If I watched it, it was not that long ago.

Here's the trailer:

https://youtu.be/Lcoq6KDeOPI (https://youtu.be/Lcoq6KDeOPI)

Heck, here's the whole freakin' movie:

https://youtu.be/Aq8GQia3Psg (https://youtu.be/Aq8GQia3Psg)

It looks so freakin' familiar. I know I saw it--but apparently it didn't make much of an impression.

Nice locandina though. Thanks for sharing.

I can't sleep. Got 2-3 hours of sleep. Woke up. Tossed and turned for an hour before just getting up (at 4 a.m.--ugh!). Thought I'd throw up another poster post---one of the lamest of recent memory (yes, even worse than the last lackluster two posts).

These posters are so dull, maybe they'll put me to sleep again.


Let's see...

DOLLY DEAREST:  Ah, yes... the female CHUCKY wannabe.  I never saw this, but maybe want to? I'm sure it's trash, but the poster makes it look like fun trash.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/dolly_dearest_dupe1_SD03208_C_zpsqcosfczu.jpg)


THE MAN WHO DIED TWICE:  I have no idea what this--but it was cheap. Looks like a noir perhaps? The allure for me? The gimmick that it boasts it's in NATURAMA!  What the heck is that? Ooooo.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Man%20Who%20Died%20Twice_zpsy2kskl3z.jpg)


THE SHAGGY DOG:  This is a 74 re-release. Nothing special---part of a lot (actually, the bulk of this listing is part of the same lot. Snore!). I never saw this film but probably should. It's a Disney classic, right? Hmm.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/shaggy_dog_ES00190_C_zpslbvssxwx.jpg)


DREAMSCAPE: Another lot poster. The poster is interesting and the movie should have been far more interesting than it was. A total misfire. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/dreamscape_ES00190_C_zpsjs9bcg5v.jpg)


LOST IN SPACE:  Lot poster--at least it's the cast photo version instead of the stupid poster with the giant LS initials. Another movie that should have been a lot better than it was.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/lost_in_space_dupe2_KM00721_C_zps9iwh9cfy.jpg)


OMEGA SYNDROME: I have no idea what this is--but the art on the poster made me laugh---clearly NOT the intention. Probably a piece of crap movie. Another lot poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/omega_syndrome_ES00190_C_zpswrdtf0nu.jpg)


KULL THE CONQUEROR (remake):  They remade this? I missed it--and that was probably a good thing. Kevin Sorbo, TV's HERCULES, in a swashbuckling sword & sandal adventure film (on another planet---or just some enchanted other time?). The ad makes it look more like a CONAN movie, which might appeal to his unsuspecting HERCULES fans. Did this get any hype at all? I remember seeing the original in the theater back in the 80s. Hmm. Another lot poster...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/kull_the_conqueror_KM00721_C_zpsbkfj35rk.jpg)


MANDINGO:  Last of the lot posters--I already have this, but... Here is Dino DeLaurentis' sleazy and cheesy and politically incorrect shocker "MANDINGO". I doubt this could get made today. Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/mandingo_ES00190_C_zps1smqjd1w.jpg)



THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER:  The photo below is just an example--not the real poster (which is nicer, but has a big watermark on it). This is another of my kiddie matinee posters (Childhood Productions). I may have this one already--but I don't think so, which is why I bought it.  Geez! I bet this flick was a stinker. The poor, poor kids who were forced to suffer through this. Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/the-prince-and-the-pauper_zpswyorp4zt.jpg)


HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS:  Last one for this morning (hopefully I can catch some more sleep...). I've never seen this but heard it's just awful. The title is a hoot though. Stumbled on this and decided to not let it get away. They charge an arm and a leg! Ha!

DAWN OF THE DEAD (Thai):  Another Thai...and purchased fairly (surprisingly) cheap. Hmm. That has me worried. We'll see what it's like when it finally arrives. If all is good, I'm super pumped to get this. Yowza!

The reason the DAWN OF THE DEAD poster is inexpensive is because of the distributor it came from, APEX FILMS.  They are one of the few distributors that actually had a warehouse to keep their posters in.  They kept their surplus there for many years until about 5-10 years ago when they went out of business and offered up their extra posters for sale.  There were a whole bunch of them and they were purchased for very little by poster sellers.  But the sellers are now getting wind of the demand for Thai and the prices are going up.  It's why you can find a DAWN poster being sold for $20 from 1 seller and another selling it for $100.

ROSA, JEFF, and MIKE---Thank you for visiting.

ROSA, I agree. The tagline on the poster is perfect! :-)

JEFF, the "greed truck" has been pushing poster prices up and up and up for the last few years---and NOT just Thai posters either. Jeepers, things have gotten so costly in the last few years.

MIKE, I need to pick your brain about the Thai posters--the sizes (what are they called?).  I have a handful now--several on the previous pages and a few below. Nothing super special, I suppose,but the art is so cool. Some I feel good about getting, others (like SPIDER LABYRINTH) I regret. Oh well, I am learning. And really, YOU are the one who introduced them to me. THANK YOU!

And yes, more posters a go-go below-O!

Here we go-go:

BEASTMASTER (Thai):  First of all, the one shown is NOT my copy. The photo of the one I got was kind of hard to see--so I "borrowed" this one from online. But mine does not have the water (?) rolls in it. Isn't this a cool image. I always liked the US poster, but this one adds an extra dimension that the US one can't beat. Just gorgeous Thai work.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Beastmaster%20Thai_zpscud9rgr3.jpg)


BREATHLESS (Thai): Another Thai beauty...and for this one, I have Steve in mind obviously. Ha! The Thai version kind of mimics the US poster with the random things placed on the poster (the gun, the car, the photo, etc.), but where the US poster leaves off, the Thai takes off in fantastic ways. Zowie! Another awesome poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Breathless%20Thai_zps3nyk4cum.jpg)


THE SINKING OF JAPAN aka TIDAL WAVE (French):  I like my disaster flicks. I saw TIDAL WAVE (the US version with stupid scenes of Lorne Greene edited in--a la Raymond Burr in the original GODZILLA -- for American audiences to identify with) years and years ago on a grimy bootleg vhs tape. Was it ever put out on an authorized video or DVD? Whatever I saw--barely remember--looked very crappy. But I've been curious about the original film. Saw this French poster and I thought why not? Disaster elements abound in it.

CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 aka THE GREEN INFERNO (French):  I know I just got the Thai version of this---with the same art work. EXCEPT, this French version actually does the Thai one better by having a bloody impaled victim below the native's head (the Thai version--gasp!-- did NOT have that feature).

THE LAST SURVIVOR (Spanish): Wow! What a cannibal movie poster--with a giant cannibal face (complete with scary bad teeth) staring you down! Ha! Couldn't refuse it.

DAFFY DUCK'S QUACKBUSTERS: What the hell is this crap, you ask? I know. I should have passed. I'm guessing this was a theatrical showing of assorted newer Daffy cartoon shorts. I was attracted because it said it included "THE DUXORCIST:" (!!!) and "NIGHT OF THE LIVING DUCKS" (!!!) Zowie!  I gotta see those. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/daffy_ducks_quackbusters_zpsf1bc3ypw.jpg)


CRIMSON PEAK:  You know how a new movie comes along and it looks really good--and the poster is impossible to get because the movie looks cool and everyone wants the poster? (I'm looking at YOU, "SPECTRE"!!!) Well, "CRIMSON PEAK" has opened...and turned out to be a dud commercially (I thought it was visually stunning--but failed as a horror movie. It was more of a gothic romance with ghosts thrown in for good measure). What its failure means is that the once difficult to get poster wasn't so difficult to get when i tried this time. Hooray! While I don't expect SPECTRE to flop, there has to be so many zillion copies of the posters out there that I expect prices to drop once the movie is out and the hoopla dies down. (At least I HOPE that's what happens. Argh!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/crimson_peak_teaser_dupe2_WC01070_C_zpsdcssq0sb.jpg)


BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN: Like CRIMSON PEAK (and hopefully SPECTRE), you couldn't touch a BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN poster for any reasonable amount of money. You couldn't even find them. Now--shazzam!--I got one in great condition pretty cheap. Hmm. (Fingers crossed for SPECTRE...).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Brokeback%20Mountain_zpskm4yvqqh.jpg)


OCTOPUSSY: The other day, I scored a FOR YOUR EYES ONLY poster. While I had had one (and a copy of OCTOPUSSY) already, they were copies with defects I couldn't deal with. I got the FYEO poster relatively inexpensively and hoped for the same with OCTOPUSSY. There was one at auction last (?) night and, my stars! It went for far more than i wanted to pay. Looking around at various sites I found one for less than half of the price of the one on auction. SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Octopussy_zps4rtkcm5m.jpg)


AMERICAN GRAFFITI: My last poster tonight was a boo boo purchase. My desktop computer is old and dying...but I still use it all of the time (using it now) and prefer it to a laptop. I was watching an auction earlier this week and trying to put together a post at the same time. I was trying to bring up a picture and was clicking on it. It wasn't working (as sometimes happens--or sometimes it does happen, just very slowly), and then I flipped over (I had been flipping back and forth) to that auction to see if anything I was watching was on yet--or close to being on. No. But somehow that lost click transferred over to the auction page and oops--I had bid on this poster. No one bid against me and oops--it was mine. I never really wanted an AMERICAN GRAFFITI poster before. I wasn't all that ga-ga over the movie. Whatever. The good thing is, is that my boo boo click got me a desirable poster in good shape. The price was high--higher than i'd ever want to pay for this poster because I never wanted it before. However, it could have been in bad shape, or I could have accidentally bid on something that was in the tens of thousands! Yikes! So--happy, lucky accident, i suppose. Does anyone know if the artist for this was the same person who did the poster for DRIVE IN? Looks kind of the same...

I gotta stop buying so much. Jeepers. It wasn't this bad when I was working. All of this sitting around while NOT working has been a bad thing...for my finances. And hello? Wasn't I only going to buy stuff on my bucket list from now on? Oops. Somehow I don't think DAFFY DUCKS QUACKBUSTERS was on the list. ARGH!  I gotta stop this frivolous buying.

Have a pleasant evening...

CHEERS!

ROSA, JEFF, and MIKE---Thank you for visiting.

ROSA, I agree. The tagline on the poster is perfect! :-)

JEFF, the "greed truck" has been pushing poster prices up and up and up for the last few years---and NOT just Thai posters either. Jeepers, things have gotten so costly in the last few years.

MIKE, I need to pick your brain about the Thai posters--the sizes (what are they called?).  I have a handful now--several on the previous pages and a few below. Nothing super special, I suppose,but the art is so cool. Some I feel good about getting, others (like SPIDER LABYRINTH) I regret. Oh well, I am learning. And really, YOU are the one who introduced them to me. THANK YOU!

Not totally true. Interests, genres and posters from various countries can go in cycles, sales or auction-wise. Some are up, others are down; recently it's been the Thai market on the rise, as the numbers have shown. Other countries and/or genres have fallen flat. MikeW just pointed that out with his recent Thai warehouse example, with those buying low, and then re-selling High.

It happens. It's the wild and wacky poster roller coaster ride.   ;)

Jeff, I just meant the prices of posters in general (especially US one sheets--I've only recently started buying foreign posters, but recall that a few years ago foreign posters were super cheap) have really risen in the last few years. I wasn't referring to a specific genre or country. But, yes, I can see that Thai stuff is really climbing higher than other things now.

Hey Shawn!
This American Graffiti one sheet was illustrated by Mort Drucker, the incredibly talented caricaturist who was a mainstay on Mad Magazine and provided art for numerous other mainstream magazines.
While the Drive-In movie poster art does resemble Drucker's work, it was done by some unidentified artist who was obviously influenced the master.
Good score.
 cheers

Howdy!  

First of all, Ted--thank you for the info on Mort Drucker. Oh man--his art IS "MAD" magazine. I haven't seen an issue in years, but when (if he hasn't already) he retires, the magazine will NEVER be the same. His style IS the magazine. I can now totally see it in the AMERICAN GRAFFETI poster too. (I wonder if he also did the MAD magazine spoof of the movie? Ha!)


Now here is the last of my new (to me) poster purchases from the last several weeks. Once I get this posted, I intend to "take a break" from the Forum for a while. Since being off of work, I've spent far too much time shopping for posters (literally CHARGING up thousands of dollars in the process. Smart!  NOT!) and spending way too much time online perusing the forum (and drooling all over the screen while looking at other scrumptious posters...and then going shopping some more, and continuing the vicious and costly cycle!). There are so many OTHER things I need to do or could be doing instead. I could write some articles for the newspaper (and earn some much needed CASH), I could pack up stuff to send to auction, I could write the (Not-So-) Great American Novel, or I could clean my bathroom (o' the horror!). Heck, just getting my laundry put away would be a major achievement. I'm sure I won't be away long--I'm such a poster addict/whore. But I hope to be away at least a week, through Halloween at the very least (but longer would be better--financially! Ha!).

Anyway, here are the last o' the spending spree batch:


THE WOLFMAN:  Out of this crop, this is the poster I regret getting the most. THE WOLFMAN? I didn't recall any recent WOLFMAN movie. I certainly didn't recall the poster. I was unsure about it, but it was kind of cool looking. I bid the lowest amount, assuming I'd be outbid. No one bothered. And then I remembered there WAS a recent WOLFMAN movie--that sucked o' soooo much (and was overly long. UGH!). No wonder no one bid against me...but I still don't remember this poster. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Wolfman_zpsl6r1munr.jpg)


SCREAM BLOODY MURDER:  This is not the most attractive poster in the world by a long shot, but I have long been wanting a copy. It's an alternate one sheet for SCREAM BLOODY MURDER (I don't want to say it's a Style B, because it might be a re-release or something else. I'm just not sure) and it's got some great exploitative/gimmick stuff going on here. I'm such a sucker for gimmicks. In addition to its claim that it is the "first motion picture to be called Gore-nography", there is also the blurb that screams "You will be required to have a Scream Bloody Murder Blindfold upon entering the theatre. Free with ticket purchase." Zowie! I want a Scream Bloody Murder Blindfold! (I'm sure some critic pointed out that the blindfolds came in handy so you didn't have to watch the entire crappy movie--not just the gory parts. I haven't seen the film, but you know how critics are. They almost always hate horror flicks.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scream%20Bloody%20Murder_zps2v9nytrs.jpg)


THE PHOENIX (Thai): I know nothing about this movie other than it stars Richard "Jaws" Kiel (he's the giant in the center) and the poster features incredible Thai art as usual.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Phoenix%20Thai_zpsznq9xcgm.jpg)


NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN (Thai): Oooo... Gotta get my Thai Bonds going. Might as well start with this one. Although not part of the official series, it still stars Sean Connery. Yowza!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Never%20Say%20Never%20Again%20Thai_zpsbaxel1va.jpg)


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (Thai):  Zoinks!  Freddy Kreuger--Thai style. Like my "BOOGEY MAN" poster, it takes the original poster art and cranks it up a couple of notches to become a cool "must have"! Wowzer!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/A%20Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street%20Thai_zpsurnnnewt.jpg)


SAW (International): When I was shopping, I realized I had nothing from the "SAW" series...and thought that was a mistake, as down the road they might obtain a cult following (and poster costs would go up). So I decided to get a poster for the first film. (Aside from the clever use of two fingers for part 2 and three teeth for part 3, let's face it, the SAW sequel posters sucked.) I'd have preferred the more common one sheet, but this one came my way. Still creepy/gruesome. Not too expensive either. Sold.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/saw_arm_style_intl_WC00740_C_zpsv7wglkc3.jpg)


ONE MILLION AC/DC:  Hmm.. I was finally hoping to score a ONE MILLION BC... Ha! Not gonna happen, apparently. But I came across this poster. Being the purveyor of trash, er...uh, posters of obscure and questionable content, I wasn't gonna let this one pass me by. Hello? It has half naked cave people battling a dinosaur on top while half naked (or more) cave people are doing other things (oh my!) in a cavern under ground. Jeepers!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/one_million_ac_and_dc_SD03465_C_zpsv0nmoob9.jpg)


CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE / THE VAMPIRE: This last poster I've wanted for ages. It is a combo poster for two silly Mexican horror movies from the 60s. It features a great gimmick "FREE! From the vampire's blood bank...Blood Cocktails. Can you drink them?" Zowie! Plus, who doesn't like taking "a psychedelic trip into the 5th dimension"? Sign me up! Sure the artwork is weak and it's just a black and white thing--but it calls to me. One auctioned off a week or so ago and went way, way higher than I could/world go...and then this one fell into my lap for only about a tenth of what the auctioned one went for. Crazy awesome!

Anyway, that is it for now. Have a super go-go groovy Halloween!

CHEERS!

Hey very nice Thai pickups.  The PHOENIX is a great poster, I've got one as well.  NIGHTMARE is a total classic.  Be advised the NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN is a re-release of the poster.  The original release is larger and has a PEPSI logo in the blank white spot just above the DOLBY logo.  This is one of those posters along with NIGHTMARE that comes from the APEX warehouse.  I did a serious observation of the NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN poster when I was trying to figure out if it was original or not and found something interesting.  If you look at Connery's forehead you will see that there is damage to the artwork that starts just at the bottom of the silencer....it looks like the printing plate was actually damaged and they painted over the damage or something like that.  That's when I finally figured out that the large one I had was the actual original (no damage).  A year later it was confirmed.  It is an original, it's just that it's a re-release and that's why there are so many floating around.  It's an awesome poster.

1st release

Steve--Thought you'd like that one.

Mike--Glad you signed on. I hope you get this note. I'm a bit bummed to learn NEVER SAY NEVER is a re-release (or just a print?). I'm learning...  My question is about THE PHOENIX. In the upper left hand corner there is a logo that looks like the old CINERAMA logo, but with Thai characters instead. Could it be??  That sounds a bit crazy, but it's there and I thought I'd ask.

Okay--over and out. Happy Halloween everyone.

Yeah I don't think that has to do with Cinerama, but who knows.  It's actually a fantasy film made in Taiwan.  Here is IMDB info on it, nothing about CINERAMA is mentioned.

Great detail close ups on the Never Say Never, Mike.  thumbsup.gif

You can also see a difference in the print quality / contrast between the original and the later rr, and a difference in the depth of color, too.

Very cool stuff, MAGG! I especially like the Del Toro Wolfman and Thai NOES posters!!

So I'm BACK, from outer space!
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face.
I should have changed that stupid lock.
I should have made you leave your key...


Why the heck am I writing the lyrics to an old disco song?  Ha!

But I really am back from outer space. I circled Uranus and barely escaped the gravitational pull of a giant black hole! If it hadn't been for a blast of some evil and deadly space gas that escaped from the black hole and knocked me free from its gravitational clutches, who knows what horrors I might have encountered? EEEK!

Yeah, I'm BORED!!!

Hello! How are you? How was your Halloween? I got out of town and...did absolutely NOTHING. Waaagh! My favorite holiday shot to hell again. Waaaagh!

But I'm back on. I was planning to stay away longer---but my poster addiction won't let me. Ha!

And, of course, I picked up a few things (there was this out of this world little poster shop on this out of the way asteroid on one of Saturn's rings) and have pictures here to share with you. Nothing too exciting. You'll see. Hang on though. I need to acknowledge my visitors--as I always do.

Let's see...

Ooooo Mr. Wright . Thanks for the IMDB link. How curious that this film, from the late 70s (released in 1980), is considered "lost". How does that happen--especially with home video just taking off about then. Too bad. The film sounded interesting.

Crazy Vick: I DID take it easy, pal!  Unlike you, with the new Crazy Baby in the Crazy Household. I'll bet you've had very little rest. Poor guy. I took it easy for YOU!.

Hi Jeff. Glad you like the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET...very much like the US version, but pushed to the next level with that groovy renderings of scenes from the flick in the upper left/right sides. Those Thais really know how to punch it up. Also glad you like the WOLFMAN poster. It's different than the US version--but the film was sooo dull (to me anyway). It could have been great but completely missed the mark. The poster is nice though, I suppose.


Rosa, how are you? No--i did not have any Halloween party to go to. I just got out of town for a bit...and was bored there too. How was YOUR Halloween? Have any fun?

Ted--Yes, ONE MILLION AC/DC. I thought you'd appreciate that one. Ha!  No Raquel Welch, but...  Ha!


Lynaron! What an unexpected and welcome surprise. You rarely stop by. I'm glad you did. Your little joke was great. Truly electrifying. THANKS! Ha!

Okay... Here's the latest. Again--nothing to get too excited about. Just minor stuff really.


First, although I already have two copies of this (and you remember THOSE dramas. UGH!), I couldn't help myself when I stumbled upon another copy of the poster for the first Olga movie, "WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN". It's in pretty rough shape--like Madame Olga herself was torturing it. Poor little poster. What sort of sordid and degrading life has it had until it came to live with me?  What sort of shocking and shameful existence will it have once I sell this puppy off? I don't know what I was thinking. Oh well... I have another one--for the moment any way.  These films were extremely low budget garbage--no sync sound, usually just a narrator. It amazes me that these little piece o' crap movies were popular enough to make 5 of them altogether. Ha! They're not for everyone, but I dig 'em. The posters for them are soooo rare though. Jeepers.

Oh my stars!  From 1964, here is the trashy trailer--NSFW (Not Safe For Work): https://youtu.be/g5ui4gLphpg (https://youtu.be/g5ui4gLphpg)  And here (gasp!) is the whole sordid NSFW flick: https://youtu.be/Vwc3zEuyevM (https://youtu.be/Vwc3zEuyevM)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/White%20Slave%20of%20Chinatown%20no.%203_zpsgipuz1ht.jpg)


ILSA THE TIGRESS OF SIBERIA:

Sticking with sexploitation, most exploitation film critics film agree that the sleazy little Olga flicks were the inspiration for the Ilsa flicks. Here is the poster for the third (and final) Ilsa film (there is a fourth, but it's a retitling and re-dubbing of another movie with similar themes and the same female star. That is "Ilsa the Wicked Warden" formerly "Greta the Wicked Warden"), "Ilsa The Tigress of Siberia". I already have a poster for this film, but it just reads "The Tigress" (as most of the US one sheets do) or possibly "The Tigress of Siberia". I had been looking and looking for a poster, in English, with the full title "Ilsa The Tigress of Siberia"--but had never seen one until recently. Zowie! I could NOT let it escape me.

Here's the NSFW Trailer https://youtu.be/cGCJX92P3mQ (https://youtu.be/cGCJX92P3mQ)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ilsa_the_tigress_of_siberia_intl_ES00263_C_zps0tskevy2.jpg)


THE SINNERS:

I came across some "bad girl" posters the other day. This one is from the early 1950s. Shocking! Scandalous! Oh my stars! I have no idea what the flick is about, but it was sleazy-cool. So daring! So frank! So shocking!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/0beb6965-6145-48f0-ab01-bd49e0352fbe_zps3uepqfuz.jpg)


THAT KIND OF GIRL:

Here's another "bad girl" flick. Apparently this is a British VD/exploitation flick that was released here as "TEENAGE TRAMP". Any of you know her? Shocking! I'd never heard of it before, but have since found the trailer (below). It looks like a hoot, like something SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO would put out (they probably do). This is the kind of poster (I have a few posters of a similar nature) I would sometimes hang in my guest room and would put a little piece of paper over the plexiglass that would read something like " (Female guest name) is... 'That Kind of Girl' ", as if my guest were the star. Ha. It was a very subtle little gag and they didn';t always see it. But it was funny when they did.

(A TASTE OF) HOT LEAD:

This 1969 film I also knew nothing about until I picked up the poster. It's a nudie/roughie from just before out and out porn was legal, and probably something SOMETHING WEIRD would have for sale. The NSFW trailer is below. The film is supposed to be in color, but the trailer is so washed out--everyone looks green. Some of the narration is funny, but it's typical nudie/roughie stuff. I did like the poster though...nothing special but bound to be rare. Curiously though, the title seems to be "A Taste of Hot Lead", but the title on the poster is just "Hot Lead". (I actually like the shorter title better). By the way, the one shown is NOT my poster. This picture, found online, shows it better than the photo of the auction I bought it from.

THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF ZORRO:

I have the posters for THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO and the X-rated ALICE IN WONDERLAND, so why not THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF ZORRO? In the poster, notice he has carved a "z" in the lady he is fighting's fanny? Ha. Clever. The movie doesn't look that good though. NSFW trailer is below:

ADAM AND EVE-THE FIRST LOVE STORY (aka ADAM AND EVE VS THE CANNIBALS):

A while ago i posted the Italian poster for this flick. It was just a photo of the scantily clad stars. The reason i had gotten it, is because I had actually seen this flick and it was so jaw-droppingly bizarre-o, I had to have it. I saw it under the title "ADAM AND EVE VS THE CANNIBALS" (even though the cannibals are only in the flick for about 5 minutes). The poster I just got (shown below) was the cover art used ("Versus the Cannibals" was the subtitle though--not the "First Love Story" crap). It was such a wonderfully and deliriously bad movie, I decided to scoop up this poster as well. And guess what? I found the movie for YOU to enjoy (or not) as well. Ha!

Here is the whole partially NSFW movie: https://youtu.be/P6nt39t7AgA (https://youtu.be/P6nt39t7AgA)

CANNIBALS:

I finally saw this movie this past weekend...after I had already purchased the poster. Ha! Oh well, the poster is kind of fun even if the movie is utter crap (a Jess Franco flick). Also known as "Mondo Cannibal" (as are several other cannibal flicks, such as "The Man From Deep River") and "White Cannibal Queen", this masTURDpiece features cannibals that not only eat human flesh, they appear to be starving and gorge themselves as soon as they kill someone. No cooking. No taking them back to share with the rest of the folks in the cannibal village...just dive in and start chewing and ripping pieces off--even while the victim is alive. Zowie! I kind of doubt any cannibal tribe anywhere was ever that hungry. Al ("Zombie") Cliver stars as an archeologist who gets his arm whacked off by the cannibals. His wife gets killed/eaten and his daughter is kidnapped. Years later, he goes back in search of her and discovers she's grown up to be a very bad actress who is frequently nude and is also the tribe's white goddess. Can he get her home safely--or will the cannibals make a meal out of the rest of him? Here's a very hard to see trailer below.

VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS:

Is there anyone who hasn't seen this groovy flick from Bert I. Gordon (aka Mr. B.I.G.)? Teenagers (including Beau Bridges, Toni Basil and Joy Harmon) eat a goo accidentally created by super genius, little Ronny Howard and zoom to super size. They go-go dance in slow motion and wear skimpy outfits...and take over the town!!! EEK!  Also featuring the Beau Brummels and a super groovy theme song. I already had a copy of the poster--but this copy was too cheap (under $20??  Really??) to pass up.

Trailer:  https://youtu.be/Oa2dTcxwOMI (https://youtu.be/Oa2dTcxwOMI).    Here's the whole film: https://youtu.be/TBLbnuEtr0U (https://youtu.be/TBLbnuEtr0U).  And, zowie! Here's the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version: https://youtu.be/KTsP_kuglp8 (https://youtu.be/KTsP_kuglp8).     Here's a bonus clip with the groovy theme music and giant slo-mo go-go dancing giants and the scene from the poster (with the guy holding on to the giant's chest: https://youtu.be/Gh5h3zzVtKw (https://youtu.be/Gh5h3zzVtKw).     And here's a clip just for Steve: https://youtu.be/hfPghWET0tA (https://youtu.be/hfPghWET0tA).

EVILS OF THE NIGHT:

I knew nothing about this movie--but have long wanted the poster. It looks like it's by the same cheezy artist who did "DR BUTCHER" perhaps? It looks like a crappy flick, but the artwork is fun. You've got what, at first glance, could almost be the Millennium Falcon swooping down from the sky, a terrified girl with a tube attached to her jugular, spewing blood up to a pair of creepy creatures in a bubble, while creepy hands grab her from below...and what an amazingly craptacular cast! Neville Brand, Aldo Ray, Julie Newmar, John Carradine and Tina Louise!!!! Wow! I may have to see that movie sometime for the cast alone. Or not.

Trailer:  https://youtu.be/Fdso2Phy360 (https://youtu.be/Fdso2Phy360)  Minute version of the whole movie: https://youtu.be/wvFJ2_XqFDo (https://youtu.be/wvFJ2_XqFDo)

TERROR IN THE JUNGLE:

I usually don't post more than 10 posters at a time, but here's a lucky 11th poster (because---oops! I already had the title, poster image link and film clip link on here ready to go before adding the text...and counting the number of posters I was listing). You are thinking, "Terror in the Jungle"? This looks like absolute crap. Why bother? I am fairly certain I already have this poster--but saw this cheap copy and snatched it up. Oh my stars--this film should be better known than it is. It should be a cult flick. It's so awesome...well, the first half hour is the best part of the whole movie. The last hour...eh. It's kind of lame--and forgettable. But that first half hour---just amazing!

The film was made by three different directors, and it shows. The first half hour was directed by Tom DeSimone, who would later go on to direct gay porn (!). Ha! Oh, i WISH I could find the trailer or the whole movie or even just  the first half hour to share with you. I found a short clip (below) and that's but a tasty little sample of the pure insane joy of that first 30 minutes. The film is about a kid whose parents are divorced. He lives with his dad in Florida, but he has to go visit mom who lives in South America somewhere. So off he goes with his stuffed toy leopard all alone. Once at the plane, we meet this wonderful assortment of cliched characters. There's the starlet (she's the one dancing in the clip) who just got her big break and is off to film the movie that will make her a star. Then there is the rich woman, being stalked by the paparazzi, who was just acquitted of murdering her husband and is traveling with all of her millions in cash. There is the really bad wannabe Beatles-like band, traveling in their performing outfits. They all look too old and are obviously wearing wigs (they'll be in the video performing a song live on the plane--but clearly are not singing it and the song fades out like a recording). And then there are the nuns aboard with a coffin containing a dead nun--taking it back to wherever they came from. There's an argumentative couple, etc. All of these great characters in what plays like a low budget precursor to the "AIRPORT" films. I won't give away what happens, but it is just jaw-dropping insane and brilliant. I really, REALLY love that first half hour of film. Bravo!!!!  Highly recommended (if you love trash cinema). That's why I am thrilled with this poster. Check out the doofy clip below.

Welcome back!!! I had not seen you post in a little while. I have been the same though. Between painting the mural, being sick, and working on my website I haven't had much time to post or buy many posters. I am also trying hard to refrain from buying posters until I finish the website. So I can free myself from this undocumented pile of paper. Once I get everything added, it will be pretty easy to maintain!!! Anyway good to see you again.. that Erotic adventures of Zorro made me laugh.

Hey Gingerman! Painting murals??  Huh? What's that all about? How exciting! Share some photos, please! Sick? Bummer dude. Hopefully you are getting better. I'd like to see your website also when you are done. Glad you liked the "Zorro" poster. Cheers!

Hola, Rosa! It's always a pleasure to see you stopping by. I am also wildly pleased (and perplexed) that my trashy-tacky-cheesy poster collection pleases you. Thanks for the kind words.

Jedgerley!!! Hi there! Thanks for coming by. Good to see you. Glad you also like my...uh, "taste" (some say I have NO taste, but...) in posters. Ugh...I so need a 12 step program. You too, huh? Of course, I'm such a poster whore addict slave, that I probably need a 15 or 21 step program. I'm that far gone... HELP!!!


TERROR INTHE JUNGLE looks brilliantly bad.  And guess what...IMDB says it also stars Bob Burns!  My guess is he shows up in his famous gorilla suit.  I must find this film...

Mr. Wright! Hi Mike (I like saying Mr. Wright...is that okay?). I really love TERROR IN THE JUNGLE (well, the first third). It IS gloriously bad. I don't recall a gorilla suit, but I wouldn't be surprised if there is one in there. (Spoiler) If a toy stuffed leopard can magically become real for a little while, why NOT a guy in a gorilla suit? Ha!


Welcome back man, nice posters too! Particularly the Ilsa and Evils of the Night posters. I saw the Evils of the Night poster on ebay a few months back and almost bought it. I too have never seen it but I love that poster.


e!!  How are you? You digging belonging to APF still? So glad you joined! Glad you like the Ilsa (see below) and the EVILS OF THE NIGHT posters. EVILS is kinda cheesy looking, but still cool. Keep your eye out. The dealer who has been selling them I am reasonably sure got a bulk lot of them from an auction site. If it is him, he is selling them at marked up prices. They'll come down because they haven't been selling--and he has a lot of them (if he got them where I think he got them). Just keep your eye out for them...and some day you WILL score one. Good luck!


And don't mess with Ilsa, the Tigress of Siberia. She sure looks like she means business with her blade and various 'modes' of expression.  piratemel

Hi Jeff. Yes, don't mess with Ilsa is right!  Yikes! I ran into her last year and, as tiny as she is (who knew? She seems so statuesque in the movies), she still forced me to hold up some poster for her latest direct-to-video movie. I had to comply...or face being tossed to the dogs, castrated, electrocuted, or WORSE!!! And at 70-something, look at her all decked out in leather! You better do what she says--or ELSE!

And now, I must dash! I'll be gone again the rest of the weekend. I have a friend in town--my oldest friend I've known since high school (the ONLY person I still know from then). She's in town to help her sister out--and wants me to hang out with her all weekend and have a little "slumber party". Hmm. While I'm NOT thrilled at the slumber party aspect (Hello? I'm a 50 year old dude--and no, it's NOT that kind of relationship), I am looking forward to hanging out with her. So I'll catch you all later.

CHEERS and thanks again for saying hello!

Cha-cha-cha!

Doing good, loving it here. Yes, the Evils poster is quite cheesy, I LOVE it  ;D. The movie looks to be on the same level, if not more. I'll have to be on the lookout for one, I'm definitely not going near those expensive ones on ebay currently. Cool you got to meet Ilsa, and man she really is alot shorter than I expected.

Hi!  I'm B-A-C-K again and OH NOOOOOOooooo!  I did it to myself again. Today was the big finale to the Halloween auction on emovie AND another Heritage auction. i bid big before leaving and when I get back....oh no. What did I do to myself? Ouch. Needless to say I was NOT outbid on much. There are still two things waiting for the final gavel to strike on heritage and I HOPE I get outbid. Argh! (They should be done by the time I finish this posting...so I'll let you know. Fingers crossed I lose them--and I "won" far too much already. Crap-o-rama ding-dong!)

Okay, last time I poster posted, I said I had some things obtained from our fellow poster posting peeps out there in APF land. Zowie!  I'll share those (and other things) in a moment. But first let me say HEY to those who've visited since I was last on.

Ah I have this poster too.  Thanks Brandon for the info.  The 75 theatres includes Canada I hear.

Hi Jedgerley! Yes, Brandon was awesome for supplying the info (and I still wish i'd been able to see the flick. Darn it all!). The posters for PIRANHA 3DD are so hard to find. I totally wish/hope they made one sheets for the one above--but you can't really count on it. Just be glad we at least scored the ones we have.

Hey Mister e (get it?) I am so glad to hear you are enjoying yourself here. There are a great bunch of people on here--and a whole lot more I have not even really "met" yet. And yes, as i said earlier, I am pretty sure you'll be able to get a cheaper copy of EVILS eventually. Yes, Ilsa IS short in real life--but don't ever let her hear you say that, otherwise she'll look gigantic as she is crushing your face into the carpet with one of her steel-toed boots! Yikes! :-)

Gingerman--WOW! I'm glad you are feeling better--and look at you GO! I completely missed the discussion on the mural AND your website, both of which look AWESOME! Bravo! Well done. I use this page as my version of a website to keep track of what I have. The stuff on here is only what I've gotten since I started this thread (with a few noted exceptions, of course). I have way, way, WAY too many (been collecting since I was a kid) to do what you are doing---so I applaud that effort on your part. Congrats! And you're NOT going to venture out and buy posters from before 1980? (I bet it happens someday... Hee hee hee!) Cheers!

Okay--now on to the posters...

SLEEPWALKERS:

The first item I'd like to call your attention to comes from Jeff/erik1925! He PMed me and wanted to know if I'd like to buy a subway poster. He recently got a SLEEPWALKERS subway and got a 2nd one as well. He offered me a good price for it and--SOLD! This is my first subway! I do NOT have the room to take a photo of it, so I'm using a picture of one found online--it's a pretty awful picture though. See Jeff's post about his in the October new additions link--to give you an idea of what I have. AWESOMENESS!  It's HUGE. THANK YOU JEFF!

Next, i have proof that Ari, the wonder down under, has truly lost his mind and is completely insane...or is the most amazingly nice guy you could ever hope to meet. Ari approached me a while back. He told me about his website where he sells various types of posters among other things. He had previously sent me a super surprise package as a sort of universal offering to nurses everywhere--which was so cool--and the stuff I ordered from his was super cool too. (Both the gift and the ordered posters have already been posted. Scroll back a bit to see them). Ari kept threatening to include some extra goodies with my order. After the incredibly generous surprise package, there was no way I was going to accept anything extra...and I flat out told him NO EXTRA GOODIES. The packages (one flat, one rolled) arrived and they were filled with bonus surprises! Oh my stars! Ari--you crazy wonderful guy--you are going to give all of your stock away! I only ordered a handful of items--just 3 or 4--and he sent 8 (EIGHT!!!) bonus goodies along! Oh my STARS!!!!! Here they are:

NAKED TO HELL:  

I know NOTHING about this title (or a lot of the titles that Ari sent), so I'll have to do some research very soon. The poster almost looks like something from Harry Novak's Box Office International, maybe? I can't find the title on IMDB.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_zpslfn8gdmx.jpeg)


HELL'S CREATURES:

Clearly a Paul Naschy wolfman flick. I'm guessing this one is what was released here as FRANKENSTEIN'S BLOODY TERROR perhaps? What "size" is that, Ari? Very cool horror image Naschy--and in gruesome green!  Spooky groovy!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_1_zpsegphhldk.jpeg)


COSI DOLCE... COSI PERVERSA (aka SO SWEET... SO PERVERSE):

This is an Umberto Lenzi giallo from long before he made CANNIBAL FEROX. I've never seen it, but those Italian giallos are often weirdly good. It's been on my list to see and now I have the locandia (sp?) to egg me on! Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_2_zpspwehtqhs.jpeg)


A TRANSYLVANIAN WEREWOLF IN AMERICA (aka FULL MOON HIGH):

Oh my stars! Ari, I just remembered. I was originally going to buy this poster--as I was curious about it (very clever rip-off title from AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON). When you told me it was actually FULL MOON HIGH, i changed my mind and got something else. Thank you--but I KNOW this was on your site as being for sale. Oh Ari! You ARE losing money by being so super duper nice. Never saw this--but this poster kind of makes me want to. Hmm. (I still like this rip-off title better than FULL MOON HIGH). Anyway, this film stars Adam Arkin--and if that's him on the center of the poster, he does look a little like a chubby version of David "An American Werewolf in London" Naughton, I guess. Look at the rest of the cast--Ha! Ed (Johnny Carson's TONIGHT SHOW sidekick) McMahon? Kenneth (WHAT'S UP DOC?/YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN) Mars? Demond (Lamont from SANFORD AND SON) Wilson? JM (Monroe from TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT) Bullock? ROZ (Pinky Tuscadero) KELLY? Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_3_zpsvukuqn5d.jpeg)


NIKOS THE IMPALER:

How did I miss this flick? It stars Felissa ("Sleepaway Camp") Rose, Lloyd (Troma) Kaufman, and Debbie Rochon. Aside from that, I know nothing about it. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_6_zpsubk59jik.jpeg)


DIE NONNE VON MONZA:

Another flick I'll need to investigate. Apparently THE LADY OF MONZA is an early nunsploitation flick. Hmm. Could be cool... I'll have to check it out.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_7_zps4dgevrkg.jpeg)


DEAD AND BURIED (Thai):

Oh my stars! I have almost purchased this poster several times since discovering Thai. Zowie--the Thai DEAD & BURIED. I'm not so sure about now, but back in the 80s and 90s Fresno was sometimes used as a test market for movies. DEAD & BURIED was tested here with an alternate (and ultimately unused) title, "LOOK ALIVE". I have the film on DVD, but have never seen it yet. I may also have the poster (I wonder if one exists with the alternate, tested title?)--but the Thai poster is just that much more WOW-y with the extras that have been added to it. Jeepers! How cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_5_zpsamwdtftp.jpeg)


ERASERHEAD promo mask:

I have wanted one of these for the longest time. Never got around to getting one--until now. Yowza! I'll probably never track down an ERASERHEAD poster, but these cool promo masks (given out to promote ERASERHEAD playing midnight shows) is the next best thing. Kowabunga! It sings to me--like the lady in the radiator! :-)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MonsterFREEBIES_4_zpsmuhqvdk2.jpeg)


[ Auction update!  OOoooo!  Yes!  I've been outbid on one of the two items. One left to go. Fingers crossed I do NOT get it. ]

HERCULES, SAMSON AND ULYSSES:

My final poster tonight is for another old Hercules flick from the 60s, "HERCULES, SAMSON AND ULYSSES". I have another copy of this--but it's rather rough. I haven't seen this flick (or have I?). That's okay--just a habit picking up old Herc posters when i see them.

Okay--that';s 10 new listings and... I was outbid on that 2nd item too! Yahoo! (Of course--there's all of the things I DID win on emovie and heritage tonight I'll have to pay for. UGH! I'll post those and others once the dust clears. GEEZ! How do i constantly do this to myself?)

Thank you Jeff and and especially Ari (shame on you--you were not supposed to send anything else! GRR!) for feeding my addiction further. Ha!

CHEERS!

GoGo...thank you sir. I have very few items pre 1980....I will eventually get some stuff pre 1980 but that era is my focus. It represents about 25% of my current collection. I haven't even touched stuff like Jaws, Back to the Future, Robocop, Ferris, and so on...

I actually won a poster tonight pre 1980. A copy of The Omen from the 70s.

I wanted to build the site before the collection gets to stinking big, like what you have!!!! It will be easy to add onto. I also am already unhappy with the 1980's section......for example I broke them up by pairs 80/81 82/83..but alpabetically..Well 84/85 We had Romancing the Stone in 84 and Jewel of the Nile in 85..so by grouping them together Jewel shows first via the alpha standard....and it bugs me   moron1   because Jewel was 2nd.....


In other news I love the Thai Dead and Buried!!!! Do any of your thai posters have censorship stamps? I was looking at some today, a few had ink-pad style stamps, but one had an embossed stamp... I am going to look into it and see if I can figure out why???? 

I also am the proud owner of one of those Erasehead masks!!!!

cheers

Gingerman!

Hi there--and congrats on your (gasp) pre-1980 poster win tonight. THE OMEN is a great movie even still today (and better than the remake). Speaking of 70s, in your list of 80s titles (Back to the Future, Robocop, Ferris, etc.) you mentioned JAWS. While 3 and 4 were 80s, JAWS the original and Jaws 2 were both 70s! :-)

Why not redo those first few 80s sections and just do one year a page. You already have 200 posters in a year's time. You WILL fill up every year if you do it one year at a time--believe me. That way you won't have the JEWEL/ROMANCING thing bugging you. (I have that problem alphabetizing DVDs...for example,BRIDE OF CHUCKY comes before CHILD'S PLAY 1, 2, and 3. GRRR!)

I love the Thai DEAD & BURIED too. I love all of the Thai stuff I've gotten...but I have not noticed any censorship stamps. Well,one had a pink stamp in the border..ink stamp, nothing embossed. How weird. Maybe Mike Wright (the Thai Guy) knows about that?

Those Eraserhead masks are so fun (and the movie is pre-80s, not sure if the masks are though. Ha!)

Thanks for popping by. I need to get out and explore the rest of the site. i haven't done that yet since getting back on. Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow.

CHEERS!

You sir are exactly correct, Jaws is from the 70's.....I always forget that because the film retained so much attention into the early 1980's I saw it in the 80s so I attach the experience to the time frame, if that makes sense...I might also just go ahead and break up the 80's...I still might do it by pairs, but doing them separate 80 then 81 for example on the same page....I still need to do the 90s 00s 10s..horror...disney......haha I think I am going to remove the thai section because all of the thai stuff I have is horror....just make one horror page

Speaking of older than 80s I have a really cool Aussie Horizontal daybill of Dementia 13...those creepy eyes..looks kinda like the grinch imho
and of course Kong r50s.....

I am off to sleep, have a good night and let me know if you see any errors on the site or have any suggestions!!!

Hola, Rosa! It's always a pleasure to see you stopping by. I am also wildly pleased (and perplexed) that my trashy-tacky-cheesy poster collection pleases you. Thanks for the kind words.


Hola Shawn! Perplexed...oh..boy..why?!  Love your collection!!!!  I think most of us here when we say how much we like a poster or collection what we do is to celebrate the collector  as much as the poster. I am sure I speak for many here when I say that we all like your enthusiasm and posters. what is there NOT to like anyway :)

I still remember with vivid clarity, seeing Jaws when it first came out. There was so much fright being expressed at times (from the totally full theater), that it was sometimes hard to hear and understand the dialog. And talk about the one scream of several hundred people, when the head pops out of the hole in the sunken boat that Dreyfuss is exploring!!

OMG!! That shriek made the scene twice as scary!   jawdrop

glad you like them,
Dead and Buried has aged VERY well, superb film, truly original.
One of those "horror" films that seem to stand alone, like The Wicker man, in they are genuinely creepy.

Hells Creatures and Naked to Hell are both Aussie daybills.

The Erasure head Promo Mask was given out at Midnight screenings in NYC, sometime after Blue Velvet was released,

I got the NIKOS poster direct from the star JOE ZASO, just for interest sake, its a pretty fun movie, by German Goremeister ANDREAS SCHNAAS.

Full Moon High is kinda fun if you like the LARCO "stuff" (like the stuff or Q the winged serpent etc)

anyway enjoy

Happy Monday. Where did the day go already? Jinkies. It was dark by 5 p.m. and now, as 7 p.m. approaches, it feels like the day is completely over with--and the mail hasn't even come yet! Blah... Maybe I'm just out of it because I'm constipated? Probably...

Hey Gingerman, keep me posted on your website and I'll check back in. I so wish i'd had the ability to do that way back when. I'm very envious. And yes, i have seen your groovy DEMENTIA 13 poster I think. It has an alternate title, if I recall. You either posted it on your page or on the monthly new acquisitions thread. Very creepy cool. i think I even commented on it. Thanks for popping by.

Rosa, hi there. Yes, i'm a bit perplexed by your enthusiasm for my page/posters. I get what you are saying but from my point of view, although I love my posters, I see them as just trash/poster junk food compared to all of the other fabulous and refined (and expensive) posters out there. I'm glad you dig them though. Yabba Dadda Doo!


Hey Jeff. I know you were addressing Gingerman, but I, too, remember seeing "JAWS" in the theater. However, I was 10 when it came out and there was NO WAY my mom would let me see it. So--(shocking true confession)--I had to wait until the re-release to finally see it (and I went and saw it several times during the re-release. Ha!). Awesome film--and that moment with the head was incredible. Biggest scare in the film. During later viewings you know it is coming and it STILL gets you. (By the way, I also had to see "JAWS 2" during its re-release. But I did see "Jaws 3D" and "Jaws the Revenge" during first-run engagements.)

ARI, you are most gracious and generous. I am still beside myself. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!!! I am still in shock by your immense kindness. Zowie!

Okay--onto the latest edition of the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show. Here's the next batch o' 10 posters to share.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION:

I know...I know... You are thinking who gives a ding-dang-dong darn about the overly tired PARANORMAL ACTIVITY movies--or their posters. I agree completely (Please let this one have been the LAST one!). The reason this is here and in my collection, is because there is a new theater in town (The Maya or Mayan?) and they gladly give out their old posters once the film has come out and is gone or about to leave. On a recent visit when I learned this (I had been there several times already and left empty handed. Waaagh! Who knew?), they gave me this poster and the next two. I am not looking a gift horse in the mouth. I'll TAKE it, thank you very much. I did inquire about the SPECTRE poster--they're not giving those out yet. After leaving, I decided to go back and beg for it. I even left my name and phone number. I want one soooo bad and am NOT going to pay $50+ bucks for one (since there are a zillion of them out there right now). Fingers crossed.

THE LAST WITCH HUNTER:

Free poster #2. Zero interest in this movie. Anyone see it? If it's good, let me know...otherwise it won't even make the "watch on video" list...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Last%20Witch%20Hunter_zpsejmtu4jv.jpg)


PAN:

Free poster #3. I know this was a huge box office bomb. However a friend did recommend this to me. Hmm. The 3D showings are already over with and it's just barely hanging on... So I am holding out hope that it will end up at the $3 theater (second run place) and I can catch it then...if I even bother. I'm not really into this though. I hated, hated, HATED "HOOK". I hated "HOOK" so much I was actually OUTRAGED that they'd spent so many millions making it. But that was "HOOK" and this is "PAN". Maybe I'll cut it some slack and check it out (since almost no one else did).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/PAN_zpsjhxfngyx.jpg)



AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON:

Yesterday I posted one of the posters Ari sent me--"A TRANSYLVANIAN WEREWOLF IN AMERICA". Great title and clearly riffing on this classic 80s horror flick. I had this poster once upon a time and sold it off when I needed cash (and got next to nothing for it). I regretted it. Not because it's a great poster (it's NOT. Isn't there a thread out there about great movies with lame paper? This is a worthy candidate...), but because I really do like the film so much. A few years back (last year?) I went to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and they had an "An American Werewolf" maze that recreated whole scenes from the film. That was surreal--walking through the movie. Ha! Glad to have the poster again...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/american_werewolf_in_london_SG00592_C_zpsl2fkjflw.jpg)



ZOMBI HOLOCAUST (aka DR BUTCHER M.D.) (Italian):

I love me my zombie movies and the Italians make some wild ones. I already have the US poster for this when it was released as DR. BUTCHER M.D. (Medical Deviate), but saw this Italian version (country of origin) and thought why not? Completely different artwork. Groovy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/italian_1p_doctor_butcher_md_SD03453_C_zpsmlkvcjbp.jpg)


NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD(French re-release special edition):

If I understand correctly, this is a French re-release from 2000 that includes special new scenes added in to the original film. Is that right? If so, this is John Russo's re-edit with NEW scenes (not outtakes originally shot) spliced in. It's just more zombie stuff really. I have the "special edition" on DVD. Apparently Russo was inspired by the success of the "STAR WARS" films special editions--but those films utilized vintage outtakes and deleted scenes. (Which reminds me of a little story. There used to be a four-theater multiplex in town. On it's marquee at one time it was showing the special editions of "Star Wars", "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi". The fourth film on the marquee was something called "Fools Rush In". I thought that was hilarious and so appropriate. Ha!). Anyway, since NOTLD stuff is usually fairly pricey (and I got this pretty darn cheap), I thought it was a decent investment.

CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS:

I was gone for the bulk of the weekend. If you read my entry yesterday, you'll remember that, due to my absence, I had bid on a lot of the auctions closing yesterday on Heritage and Emovie...knowing I'd surely be outbid. Uh... That didn't exactly happen. Yikes! Not only did I have to scrounge to find enough credit card space to pay my invoices (oh my...), I also ended up with TWO copies (one from each auction house) of "CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS". OOPS. (So don't be surprised when you scroll down to the next poster and find that it is strangely familiar. Ha!) I already had a copy I got awhile back, but that copy has a number of things wrong with it that I can't deal with. So...I needed another copy. I got more than i bargained for. Ha! It's still a cool poster though. (Wouldn't have bothered if it wasn't.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Children%20Shouldnt%20Play%20With%20Dead%20Things%20no.%203_zpsm1i75tzn.jpg)



CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS:

Look!  It's "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things". Surprise! Ha! As I said when writing about the "Zombi Holocaust" poster, I like my zombie movies. While not the best zombie flick ever (In interviews, the makers of this film said they were trying to make a low budget version of "NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD". Ha!  Hello? That was already a low budget movie!), it is on the obscure side (the only post-NOTLD / pre-Dawn of the Dead zombie flicks from the US that I can even think of that could be even more obscure are "Garden of the Living Dead" and/or "The Corpse Eaters"--both of which I have the posters to). It's kind of wild to think that the man behind this flick would go on to make "Porky's" and "A Christmas Story". Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/children_shouldnt_play_with_dead_things_BM04479_C_zpssmyh60oq.jpg)


THE FACE OF FU MANCHU:

Do I have this already? I'm not sure... I don't think so, but... This poster is for the first of the five Fu Manchu films that starred Christopher Lee in the title role. About two years ago i finally sat down and watched the series. They are a bit dated and lack the punch of modern films, but I could see what the appeal was and why they were popular at the time (although they have fallen into a bit of obscurity today). While I doubt I'll ever bother watching them again, I still thought it would be nice to track down the posters. If it happens, it happens. But I'm not gonna knock myself out over it. Poster #1 is here. One down, four more to go (actually a few more as some of the flicks have more than one style of poster. How very fiendishly Fu Manchu of the filmmakers to do that to me! Argh!).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/face_of_fu_manchu_BM05002_L_zpsaaovurib.jpg)



THE NIGHT THE WORLD EXPLODED:

Last poster for tonight--and (gasp!) this was my very accidental loss of my linen cherry! Oh my! I do not like posters on linen. Period. i've passed up some beautiful posters from time to time simply because they were on linen. The night this poster was being auctioned off, I had completely forgotten about the auction. I had gone to the movies (see the story about the free posters at The Maya Theater above. And in case you are curious, I was seeing "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse". Really.). It was only as I was driving home that I remembered the auction. Oh crap! While driving (soooo dangerous and illegal of me), i brought up the auctions on my phone. This one was one of the posters that was just about finished and it wasn't too terribly expensive (certainly not in the hundreds or thousands of dollars range many of the other posters were) and it was in marvelous condition. I bid. When i got home, I was happily surprised to see that I had won it...and then also totally bummed to see it was on linen. Waaagh! Still, it is a cool image. Never saw the movie, but I dig those vintage drive-in era horror and sci fi posters. I have so few of them. This will do until a non-linen version comes along.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/night_the_world_exploded_linen_BM04919_C_zpskc0p6962.jpg)


And that's all for today kids. Monster A Go-Go hopes you all are washing behind your ears, looking both ways before crossing the street, and listening to your moms and dads. Hiddy-ho!  I'll see you next time (unless that creepy thing that lives under your bed gets you first).

I am surprised MAGG you got this far before losing one of your posts while crafting it! I can imagine the frustration. It could be the forum software or the browser. Probably the forum software. I guess the logical step like I do after such a scenario is to create it ielsewhere and copy paste it into here.

I remember vividly my end of uni thesis I lost it after nearly completing it due to a computer crash. That was back when max disk capacity was a 1.44MB floppy. I spent I think 5 days non stop in the uni computer room redoing it for the deadline.  That includes taking short naps in a locked warm server room in the wee early hours - I figured out how to access... sliding in a credit card around the door lock, from memory!  Since then losing big screeds on the computer I am prepared for and half expect it so I don't get too annoyed anymore as it will never be as bad as it was back then.

Don't give up!.... Looking forward for more shlock-o-rama

Hi there. Take 3. I HOPE this attempt at a post doesn't end in disaster like my last two attempts (and the one Jeff tried) did. ARGH!

Anyway, how are you? I hope everyone is well. It's time to post some more crap...er, posters I recently acquired. Except for Jeff, whom I've already addressed, I don't think anyone's been by to say hello..so I don't need to address anything--so let's get on to the posters! Whoo hoo!


JOHN CARPENTER'S VAMPIRES

This is another poster purchased from our own Jeff/erik1925. He sent me a note, wanting to know if I'd like to add this baby to the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show. Sure I would. Why not? I don't think i have it yet. And voila! Through the magic of Paypal and the US Mail, it was done! Thank you, Jeff! I haven't seen this flick, but I am getting a little tired of John Carpenter thinking his name needs to be included in the title of all of his films. I mean, hello? He's made some pretty stink-o-rama turds. I mean really... Just because he made "Halloween" 35+ years ago... GET OVER IT already.

FIRST BLOOD

I am not a fan of the Rambo films...or of Sylvester Stallone for that matter. I have just noticed the one sheet for this film is kind of pricey. (I guess that, just because there are no Rambo films on my DVD shelf doesn't mean it isn't a popular series. While I've seen the three Rambo films (is there a 4th?), I really don't remember much about them (especially the third one--which I saw at a drive in back in the day).

What I have noticed is that the title of the series changed mid-stream. (From "First Blood, to "Rambo: First Blood Part 2", to just "Rambo 3") But, like I said, I have noticed the one sheet can be pricey...even the one sheet for Part 2 can fetch some bucks. Jeepers! I saw the one sheets for 1 & 2 (both in really great shape) together at a decent price (lower than I usually see the one sheets for 1 and/or 2 sometimes) just languishing. No one else was interested, so i scooped them up. I'll sell them down the road a bit--hopefully make a profit.

RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART 2

About seven or eight years ago, when I was still a writer in the Custom Publications department of the newspaper, I decided to give everyone in my department a framed movie poster for Christmas. That may sound startling, but this was back when posters were still relatively cheap. The frames were the most expensive part of the gift back then.

I still remember what posters I gave everyone, and all were perfect for the individual. I had two bosses. To Carey who liked Rick Springfield, I gave "Hard To Hold" (boring poster). To Monica, I gave her "Grease 2". Both of those posters I got for about $1 each. Seriously! And they were in great condition. Josh was a big fan of the movie "The Prestige"--so he got that (also boring) poster (which I had gotten for FREE, by the way). Kristen got one of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" posters. Sara got the most recent (1998?) re-release one sheets for "Gone With The Wind".

Becki was a special case. She and I had started together on the same day. It was great that way because we could cling to each other through training and while we learned the ropes. She was a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone. I couldn't afford "First Blood" or "Rocky"--so i ended up getting her "Rambo: First Blood Part 2". (I also got her a 2nd poster--the double feature combo poster for "Rocky" and "Rocky 2"--which I gave to her later). I'm sure all of the posters/frames i gave out have long since ended up in the garbage or a garage sale. I TRIED to convert my co-workers into poster fans, but...it didn't work.

Becki has since moved to Washington DC, gotten married and is now a mom. I'm sure her posters got lost in the shuffle for sure. Her posters I spent the most on...and the frames were pricey too (about $25 each). Where are they now. I wish I had them all back.

Part 2 (hopefully)

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (Thai):

The next three posters other members of the APF forum have copies of and have posted them (acquisitions threads?). These posters really struck my fancy and I decided I really, REALLY needed to get copies of them for myself. This ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK poster is NOT my poster. I'm just using it as an example--but it's just the same. Zowie! i am just ga-ga over the Thai posters. They are just stunning. They really punch it up with color and artwork. Bravo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Escape%20From%20New%20York%20Thai_zpsijndjlqg.jpg)

TINRORERA (German):

Yowza! This German TINTORERA poster is awesome. It's scary and better than the movie itself! I had to have it. Love my JAWS ripoffs!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tintorera%20German_zps745hvr9g.jpg)


X FROM OUTER SPACE (German):

OOOoooo this poster really speaks to me. Ha! I've never seen the film, but have seen stills from it and I recognize the creature on the poster from the stills. Great poster. I just wonder how the zany Germans worked Frankenstein into it (as it is in the German title). Anyone read German? Soooo groovy cool.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/X%20From%20Outer%20Space%20German_zpsggfzhljn.jpg)

BURIAL GROUND:

I am sure I already have this poster, but who knows if I'll ever unearth it again. But here is the US poster for yet another gonzo zombie poster that tried to capitalize on the success of "DAWN OF THE DEAD". I love this cheezy stupid crap. The most disturbing thing about this gut muncher is this weird kid who has a very strange mother fixation. Oh my stars! (Spoiler!!) Later in the film he becomes a zombie and bites his mother's breasts off! No kidding!

Here's the trailer: https://youtu.be/CJclhRASfZQ (https://youtu.be/CJclhRASfZQ)

Here's a weird disturbing scene between the son and the mom (NOT that scene though): https://youtu.be/tFo453PqvVo (https://youtu.be/tFo453PqvVo)

Heck, here's the whole dang movie... https://youtu.be/VixiEyjVcvQ (https://youtu.be/VixiEyjVcvQ)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Burial%20Ground_zpslideksw4.jpg)

I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1956 re-release style A):

Speaking of zombies, here is a classic. Not in the Romero zombie sense, but in the Val Lewton produced sense. No gut munching here,just great atmosphere. I really, really want an original one sheet from the first release. it's just gorgeous. The re-release style B poster uses the same artwork, but the colors used are more muted than the original. I'll probably never have either--so this will have to suffice. And I am thrilled to have it. Yippie.

Part 3 (last part)

GHOST IN THE INVISIBLE BIKINI:

I already had a copy of this, but needed a better copy. Most people point to "HOW TO STUFF A WILD BIKINI" as the end of the "Beach Party" movie series, because it is the last one to feature Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. But "GHOST IN THE INVISIBLE BIKINI" is the true conclusion to the series. Frankie and Annette may be gone, but the rest of the Beach party gang is here--along with Nancy Sinatra, Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff! Geronimo!

Here's a look (the trailer): https://youtu.be/mghTPnEDKsU (https://youtu.be/mghTPnEDKsU)

And the whole way out groovy ghoulie thing: https://youtu.be/wItc9w27WQI (https://youtu.be/wItc9w27WQI)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ghost%20in%20the%20Invisible%20Bikini_zpshlr7ohtn.jpg)

THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU:

Speaking of Karloff, my last poster of the day is for a movie I had never heard of before,  1942's "THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU." I got this on the last day of the emovie Halloween auction. It's a little more beat up then i'd normally go for--only in "good to very good" condition. But it had a couple of things going for it. It features both Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre. I only have a few later Karloff posters and nothing with Lorre. I also noticed this blurb on the auction page: Important Added Info: Note that this is an extremely rare one-sheet which we have never auctioned before!  Zowie! That made me wonder. If it really is all that rare, I might as well try for it. I bid a high (for me--but quasi-modest for a "rare" poster) amount and was shocked that I got it. Huh? Really? I'm thrilled, of course. If there was ever a poster in my collection I would even consider linen backing, it's this one (and I HATE linenbacking). It looks like it might be okay as is in a frame, but I hate the tape discoloration at the top and bottom folds in the margins. Grrr. Still, while it may not be a Universal monster poster--it is a Karloff and a Lorre and more than 70 years old. I'll take it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/boogie_man_will_get_you_SD03452_C_zps3jdo9b3g.jpg)

Okay kiddies, that's about all of the time we have for the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show tonight. No one soiled themselves, I trust? Now hurry on in and brush your teeth and get ready for bed. Your moms and dads will be in to tuck you in soon. By the way, I hope you've been feeding the monster in your closest. What do you feed a monster, you ask? I find that bratty brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, works best. Nighty night and have groovy dreams!

OK THIS TIME FOR REAL

BAN HIM

but really, jealous of your Lewton, I am a casual collector of Lewton, casual because theytend to be too expensive for me. I have a reissue insert for I WALKED... and have at least one thing from NEARLY all of his films.

Great stuff as always, love your taste.

ok, no banning needed, but maybe a time out?

Hey, glad it finally worked! happy1

The most disturbing thing about this gut muncher is this weird kid who has a very strange mother fixation. Oh my stars!
Haha I know, right? It was totally weird! The rest of the movie was borderline boring and then that kid would come in with his creepy antics, and I  would break into hysterics. I like how sudden it comes about too, I mean he's weird from the beginning but then out of nowhere it escalates to a whole nother(or should I say mother) level :P

All in all nice haul as usual!

What a great lineup of titles.
I really like I Walked with a Zombie and The Boogie Man Will Get You.
Been meaning to replace my long-lost First Blood one sheet... that Drew Struzan artwork is simply iconic.
Ghost in the Invisible Bikini brings back fond memories.
Tintorera and Escape From NY kick serious ass.
Heck, they're all dynOmite!

FIRST BLOOD

I am not a fan of the Rambo films...or of Sylvester Stallone for that matter. I have just noticed the one sheet for this film is kind of pricey. (I guess that, just because there are no Rambo films on my DVD shelf doesn't mean it isn't a popular series.

Knowing you are on a Thai kick recently, I think we've talked about the Thai versions of all the RAMBO series and how there are multiple versions for each installment.  This one is based on the design you have shown and is printed as the largest 1 sheet size before they would go to 2 sheets.  This one is also pricey but looks great.

Hi there. Gather around boils and ghouls, it's time once again for the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show. Does everyone have their Freak-O-Vision glasses on? Groovy!  Before we get started, i need to do some shout outs.

Hey Jeff, I just wanted to THANK YOU again for your attempt at helping me with my post yesterday. I am having a crappy day today (literally--details to follow if you really want to know) and hope things go smoothly this time. Fingers crossed!

Ari, don't be jealous. It was only produced (not directed) by Lewton...and, unless i ever score the original release poster, there's really nothing to get jealous of (Now that original release poster--zowie! That's awesome!)

Mister e! I'm so glad you know the movie "BURIAL GROUND", not that it's a great movie (it's not), but because someone else gets the frame of reference.  Glad you like the posters. Anxious to see more of your stuff myself. Cheers!

Stew!  Thanks for saying hello. I know what you mean about that Thai ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. Kind of throws everything off. Oh well, someone has to have it. Hee hee!  Thanks for visiting.

Rosa and Steve--So glad you both dig the "X FROM OUTER SPACE" poster. You understand how i felt when i saw the other one someone posted on the new acquisitions thread a while back. I loved it. It really worked for me and I had to get one myself. Thumbs way up on that one.

Hey Ted, were you channeling Jimmy Walker (who is not even dead yet) when you gave your overall review of my new posters ("DynOmite")? Ha!  Glad you liked them. Thanks for looking.

Mike, o those amazing Thais. Even something like the first RAMBO movie is better as a Thai poster than the US version. And you say there are several styles? For each movie? Wow! You need to post your collection in ONE [place so we can see it all. Amazing. Thanks!

Okay--I think i covered everyone. Now let's get this poster party started. (Fingers crossed everything works this time.)::


COLOSSUS: THE FORBIDDEN PROJECT (German):  I've never seen this movie. I bought the poster strictly based on the poster. It was colorful and I thought it really popped.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Colussus%20The%20Forbidden%20Project%20German_zpsla5wmly6.jpg)


THE GHOST (Belgian): Although I have a one sheet for this (scroll way, way back), I thought this was a fun and colorful addition. Now, by the light of day, it's not that exciting. Oh well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/belgian_ghost_WC00282_C_zpsmrmqo3tl.jpg)


CANNIBAL MAN: I just watched this over Halloween weekend. It's not really a cannibal movie, but an interesting study into one man's decent into his own personal hell. I decided I liked the movie well enough to get the poster. I couldn't find one. There are Spanish ones out there with the original title (Week of the Murderer--or something like that). I spied a poster in English with yet another alternate title (Something like The Apartment on the 13th Floor)--but it's really dull and really expensive. Emovie just had one--a Belgian with gruesome artwork of a guy with a meat cleaver in his face and the title "Cannibal man" below it--but it went crazy high and I dropped out. Then this little gem fell into my lap. It has the artwork from the original Spanish release and the title I desired. Sold!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cannibal%20Man_zpsylot3o6n.jpg)


JAWS 3D (Japanese chirashi):  I got one of these Japanese mini-posters for JAWS 3D not long ago. But when i came across this one, I realized it was completely different than the one I had already purchased. So i got this one as well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jaws%203D%20chirashi%20B_zpsobmuw6od.jpg)


DEEP ADVENTURE: I had never heard of this film when I stumbled on the poster. Although it's kind of dark (is that the poster or the photo?), I was digging on the shark and all of the underwater activity. Why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Deep%20Adventure_zpsix44ehrg.jpg)


LADY IN CEMENT:  Eh.. I've seen this around a few times, but finally decided to pick one up. I've heard the movie is not that good, but you've got Frank Sinatra and Raquel Welch (and Hoss from "Bonanza"? Ha!). Go for it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Lady%20In%20Cement_zpsyiridtys.jpg)


INVASION OF THE ASTRO MONSTER (Thai): I've also seen this around as well, but only picked it up when i found one cheap enough. Is INVASION OF THE ASTRO MONSTER the same thing as GODZILLA VS MONSTER ZERO? Always happy to get a new Thai poster. This one is fun.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Invasion%20of%20the%20Astro%20Monsters%20Thai_zps9tnkctjx.jpg)


OMEN 4: THE AWAKENING:  I know. I know. This 4th film in the OMEN series is just crap. Fortunately for us in the US, it was a TV movie--so we didn't have to shell out a dime to see it. The rest of the world was not that lucky and they had to see it in theaters. I decided to pick this standard one sheet size poster up so i could have one sheets for each of the films,,,even though the poster leaves a lot to be desired as well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Omen%204%20the%20Awakening_zpslintf9ey.jpg)


ZOMBIE LAKE (Belgian): This is actually the very first time I've encountered any poster art work for the admittedly awful "ZOMBIE LAKE". But i dig my zombie flicks, so why not? EEEK!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/belgian_zombie_lake_WC00282_C_zps4iz39uh0.jpg)


FANTASM: Steve, I told you I had something you'd like in this installment. This poster is one of those cases where you are bidding on something else you really want--and to pad out the shipping costs, you bid on a few other things as well. Of course i LOST out on the thing I really wanted--but still ended up with this. I've been intrigued by this title for a long while. At first I thought it was a softcore version of the horror movie "PHANTASM". But "PHANTASM" was 1979, and this hails from 1976. Hmm. I think this is an Australian movie (?) with American porn stars (?) but completely softcore. The poster is, i think, Australian too--size is a little smaller than a one sheet--but bigger than a daybill. This poster would never see the light of day in a regular theater in 1976 over here. Yowza.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fantasm_zpstyprzqfv.jpg)

And that is all for today. My bad luck from last night continues on into today. (I need to go and buy a plunger. Need i say more?)

Have a better day than me.

CHEERS!

re LEWTON, yeah I know, I love the film, and all the Lewton produced movies (he only Directed one short and Ive not seen it)
First release on the sought after titles are hard to afford for some of us.
Funny I nearly bought a Belgian for THE GHOST just this week . ha

Zombie Lake, I LOVE the film myself, best Nazi Zombies after SHOCK WAVES.
I like Jean Rollin, his films have a certain quality.

FANTASM is indeed an aussie film and aussie poster, a lot of the exploitation films got odd releases here and the advertising had budget constraints, so often the posters were odd also, size, print quality etc were affected. Its a very interesting film, see it if you can, hard to describe it really, but unlike anything else.

I DO agree re ROLLIN, but they all have "something"
I kinda prefer the slow romantic soft focus vampire ones I guess. At least they are visually interesting.

Hard to say, be ready for very SLOW movies, he did make some beautiful cinema on VERY tight budgets.
I remember reading the budget for one of the posters was more than the film, (slight) exaggeration I am sure.
try:
The Nude Vampire
The Demoniacs
or
The Grapes of Death
And see how you go.... Slow but can be beautiful in their own haunting way.

Good evening. It's time for the Friday the 13th edition of Shock-A-Rama Poster Show!!!  EEK! Like all good girls and boys in horror movies, DON'T bother to lock your doors or windows, LOSE your virginity as you read this and SMOKE dope and/or drink booze. Above all else do NOT heed the warnings of the town locals. There's no boogey man or masked serial killer out to get you tonight...or is there?

Before we get to the posters, let's say hello to everyone who stopped by since the last time we were here. Let's see...

Rosa!  How nice to see you. Your description of the ZOMBIE LAKE poster was funny and accurate...but not, unfortunately, what the movie is about. But hey--work with the idea. There may be a screenplay in there someplace.

Hi Ari! You prefer the slow, soft-focused vampire flicks? Almost all of Rollins films are the slow soft-focused vampire flicks. Ha!  In addition to the three you suggested for Mike (Hey there! Nice to see you! Got something with YOU in mind below) to see, might I also suggest FASCINATION and (his first) RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE. And don't forget (or maybe DO forget) ZOMBIE LAKE! Ha! I haven't seen all of his films though. I would bow down to Ari and his knowledge. I'm sure he is better acquainted with Rollins work than i am.

Ted, thanks for stopping by.

Steve, i knew you'd like the poster...tidbits and all!  :-)  And if you have not seen the "RIP Carol Doda" thing in the news section, check it out. You have probably never heard of her, but if you had--you'd have been a big fan i am sure. Cheers!

And now on to the posters...

FRIDAY THE 13th PART 2   (Japanese B2)

What could be more appropriate for a Friday the 13th edition than starting off with posters for two "FRIDAY THE 13TH" films. I know a lot of people like this sequel. It's okay, but this first directorial effort by Steve Minor was AWFUL I thought. He improved the next time at bat and has been doing well since. But in this film? Ugh. I thought he was weak. That's not to say there weren't some good performances. Amy Steel was marvelous as the lead heroine, possibly the best of the whole series. Anyway, here's the poster for the Japanese release...different than the US release (which was boring).

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3 3D (Japanese B2)

Jason is B-A-C-K...and this time he's in 3-D! Yowza! Part 3 was also wear Jason first wore his iconic hockey mask (before he'd just been wearing a cloth sack, a la the Elephant Man). The poster utilizes the ad art for the US poster, but adds to it with the big bloody title jutting out at you. It's crazy and tacky looking--but it works. Cool!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/japanese_b2_friday_the_13th_part_3_3d_SD03706_T_zpsmuwfxgxn.jpg)


RAMBO 3 (Thai)

Ugh! I really didn't want/need another RAMBO poster. But I was so taken with Mike's example of the Thai FIRST BLOOD poster and his saying that there were various posters for the films, I found myself looking them up. I stumbled on RAMBO 3 and, before I knew it, I had ended up buying it. Ooops! The example below is from emovie---but that's not where I got it from.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/rambo%203%20thai_zpsbkh8gnjo.jpg)


TOTAL RECALL (Thai)

Like Stallone, i'm not really a big fan of Ah-nold either. But I liked this poster for TOTAL RECALL (way better than the US version)...so i snatched it up.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Total%20Recall%20thai_zps9qko4buy.jpg)


PIRANHA (Thai)

My final Thai for tonight is for the original PIRANHA. I got a poster similar to this from Turkey not long back. The Thai version adds to the design somewhat (there are now distant beach scenes on the left and right side with actually other people being attacked in the distance. There are also a few other scenes from the film illustrated around the bottom as well--but somehow it lacks that punch the Thai posters usually have over US posters. Still--I dig it. Like my JAWS ripoffs..and PIRANHA is one of the better ones.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/piranha%20Thai_zpsubif6uhh.jpg)




BEASTLY (lenticular):

I never saw this flick and probably never will bother to. it's an update of the whole BEAUTY & THE BEAST thing, I believe. Although instead of a beast, the cursed guy is covered with tattoos! Ha! The lenticular isn't all that 3D. Instead it shows two images--the guy with the tattoos and without. i opted to show just the tattoo shot. I dig lenticulars--but they don't dig my wallet. Once in a while tyou stumble on a cheap one...such was the case with this one. Sold!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Beastly%20lenticular_zpsmbsu10v6.jpg)


TOMORROW NEVER DIES

I have ALL of the one sheets for the James Bond individual films now (except for SPECTRE and there is one double feature poster I also lack). I saw this for sale and for a moment i  could not remember the poster--had i seen it before? Did i have it? I panicked and bid...then remembered i did, in fact, have it. But my bid wasn't beaten and...I now have another. OOPS.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/tomorrow_never_dies_dupe1_SD02676_C_zpsydjylkju.jpg)


MANDINGO (Yugoslavian):

I do not know why, but MANDINGO is a guilty pleasure of mine. Maybe because it is just so bad and so wrong and so over the top... I haven't seen it in years (but I see it and it's awful sequel in the pile of movies to be watched in the coming weeks... I've had the DVDs since they were released, just haven't had the time), but I remember my jaw dropping at some scenes. Ha! This movie could never be made today. Anyway, saw this Yugo poster recently and decided to get it. it's very different from the interracial GONE WITH THE WIND-esque US poster that tried to shock moviegoers into seeing it. James Mason with his feet on a slave boy? So wrong! Jeepers--what were they thinking in the 70s when they made this (and yes, I realize it might be correct in historical context, but still...).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/yugoslavian_mandingo_BM04903_C_zpsx6dvmnau.jpg)


AENIGMA (Italian):

I've not seen Lucio Fulci's AENIGMA yet. one of the few films of his released here I have not gotten to yet. His horror is hit and miss...but maybe this is one of his giallos? I've not seen it, as i've said, so i'm not sure. I was just thrilled to find some vintage Fulci paper (country of origin) cheap.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Aenigma_zpsmupq02sv.jpg)

PAGANINI HORROR (Italian):

I'm not sure what this is exactly either--but the poster is cool. It's got a spooky looking house, a skeleton playing a violin and horror atmosphere in every corner of the one sheet. Yowza! Has anyone seen this? Any good? is it worth tracking down?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Paganini%20Horror_zpshpigna2y.jpg)

And now it's time for lights out. The Friday the 13th edition of the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show is over. Get to bed and pay extra special attention to all of the creaks and groans of your house. it could be just your house settling or the wind...or it could be someone (or something) else!

EEEK!

Happy Friday the 13th!

CHEERS!

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. I think I'm going on another little break from APF for a while. I might be back towards the end of next week for a quickie--but probably won't be back until the Monday or Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  I hope everyone (even if they don't live in the US and don't celebrate the holiday) has a super groovy and thankful Thanksgiving.


Paganini Horror is good, and the artwork is by the master Enzo Sciotti good score, I have Locandina, same art. good work.

Ari, Oooooo now you've got me curious about the flick. i'll have to track it down. Thanks!


This thread is really enjoyable. Thanks for talking the time you do with your posts  cool1

Hi Mike. That is ever so kind of you to say so. But you also put a lot of time into your discussions of Thai art. That is also very enjoyable. Thank you for doing that!


GoGo I really like your thread my friend! That being said, I would not have bid up the Japanese Friday 13th had I know.........it was you. Congrats on those 2!!!!

ARGH!!!  That is the ONE THING i do NOT like about being a member of APF. We all know when the auctions are and we all go for them. A few weeks back, someone else mentioned I bought something they were after. Ouch. i feel bad. And Gingerman, had i know YOU were bidding on those F13s, i would have totally let you outbid me and I'd have walked away. Really! Glad there are no hard feelings.


Nice additions, as always, MAGG!!
Cool beans, for sure!!

 thumbsup.gif

Thanks, as always Jeff. And yes, my beans are cool. That's why I'm taking some time off. i need to "heat them up" again. Ha! I dig the stuff on the acquisitions thread you got--just didn't mention it all in my quick post there last night. You always manage to snag fab posters yourself (And a few extra for me to buy from you. Ha!) Cool beans, indeed,.

Cheers everyone!

Keep on cha-cha-cha-ing!

GoGo First off, no worries on the F13th posters! You won them congrats! As of late I have been only dabbling with bids. I am only about half way through listing my stuff. So I am not trying terribly hard to win stuff. I was simply saying had I known it was you I would not have bid in the first place. I changed my name on EMP to match here, that away anybody here will see me there also. Some people have mixed ideas on this......others are very secret. Either way congrats, I will sublets onto them again in the future!
Enjoy your break, and take care.

I really am trying to be gone for a while...but a certain someone lured me back on for a few minutes. I thought I'd respond to Rosa, Ari and Gingerman before my little break (for at least 1 week---but possibly 2 1/2 weeks).

Rosa--thanks for the well wishes. I'm not really going anywhere special, just getting away from posters for a bit. Yikes! I have purchased more posters in this last year (actually--more in these last two or three months!) than i ever have. Yikes! I'm spending way too much. i gotta focus on getting out of this dump I'm in and back in a house. So if I stay away from the site for a bit, i hopefully won't be as tempted. Besides i spend way too much time online shopping. I need to get back out into the real world again a bit more.  See ya!

Gingerman. I went back and looked at the auction and see you did bid on those posters at the end. I didn't even look to see who had bid...just clicked on the "outbid" notice and bid again. So sorry.  Secondly, I can't believe I have not posted more on your thread about your site. i just checked it out again and it is coming along nicely. i'll post properly on your thread after my hiatus. Okay? Looking good and again, i wish I had been able to do that when i had first started collecting.

Ari--Ha!  You recognized my user name during the auction? REALLY?  That's how they told me to sign up when i signed up...not something I chose. I may need to go in and fix it like Gingerman did, so we don't have a mix up again.  And who are YOU on there? 

OkaY--I really do want/need to take a breather for a bit. I'll see you possible late next week---or in very early December.

CHEERS!

No worries! Enjoy your hiatus. I will be here. Thank you, I am glad I am doing it now. Instead of waiting like you said, and having far too many to even organize. You can keep posting them here! No worries on the bidding, but if you do decide to change your name I will see you!

Hello every one. I am B-A-C-K as promised. Just for now. I'm taking off again and won't be back until around December 1st or so.  

Anyway... Jeepers! What went on around here? Ari and Steve??? Oh my STARS! Congratulations, i guess-- I just hope you didn't go ahead and consummate the wedding on my page as well... Or if you did, i HOPE you cleaned up after yourselves and didn't leave me the dirty sheets to clean up afterwards. Eeew!  Where are you registered, by the way?

Jeff--No, you are right. i can't resist the pull of APF. I thought about waiting until the December 1st-ish return date I had established, but also said I might be back if I had time late this week., Well, I have the time...and some new posters (argh!) and so here I am. Who is my daddy? Uh oh...are you trying to tell me something?

Ted--I am super glad you like the poster. Thanks!  Now i want to track down the film...

Gingerman, I bid at emovie again the other day...and despite what happened between you and I the other day (which i still feel awful about) and my long running fear that situation would come up eventually, i realized when the auction was over that I did NOT even bother to look and see who was bidding against me the entire time. I just HOPE it was no one on here. ARGH!

Ari, Steve, and Rosa...thanks for stopping by as always.

Okay, i am actually anxious to go back to my hiatus from APF, so i'll make this post of 10 posters as short and sweet as possible (unless I get to running off at the mouth fingers again).

INLAND EMPIRE (French):

Zowie!  I had completely forgotten i had gotten this poster...until I opened it. I love DAVID LYNCH, and even though INLAND EMPIRE was not nearly as incredible as MULHOLLAND DR., I liked it. I also have been wanting the poster. i know the film only had a limited US release and the US posters are hard to come by...so i had to settle (so far) for a French one. Ooo la la!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Inland%20Empire_zpsdvlfd0hf.jpg)



SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (British Quad Teaser):

Here is my OOPS for the week. A little while back in the New Acquisitions thread, someone poster a quad for the new film SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. It was a cool poster--real "art" as opposed to some photoshopped crap-a-rama. I liked it and wanted it (especially since it was so much nicer than the stupid US version (with the Swiss Army knife). I looked and looked and found 3 available. The quad the other APF member had, the one sheet with the same art, and this advance quad with a different ad altogether. I bid on all three, not expecting to get any...and, uh, um...I ended up getting all three. OOPS.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scout%20Guide%20to%20the%20Zombie%20Apocalypse%20advance%20style%20Quad_zpsrytvsw0r.jpg)



SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (British Quad):

This is like the one the other APF member got/shared. Very nice--and as i said, much better than the US version.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Scouts%20Guide%20to%20the%20Zombie%20Apocalypse%20quad_zpsxpkyqout.jpg)



SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (British One Sheet):

Here's the British one sheet version. I did see the movie, by the way. It was amusing.

SCOOBY DOO (British Quad):

While looking for the SCOUTS GUIDE posters, i stumbled on this British quad for the live-action SCOOBY DOO movie. Very different again from the US version. As a SCOOBY DOO fan I had to get it. SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/scooby%20doo%20british%20quad_zpsvnbx9uok.jpg)



PIRANHA 2: THE SPAWNING

I already had the alternate PIRANHA 2 poster (with the alternate subtitle "FLYING KILLERS"), but have always kind of wanted this one as well. I had been seeing one lately here and there with just the title "The Spawning" (No "Piranha 2"). Nope--that would not do. So when I stumbled on this one...SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Piranha%202%20The%20Spawning_zpsnzmpv8gk.jpg)



FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 (Turkish):

I got a couple of the FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel posters from Turkey not too long ago. I'd seen this one from time to time and thought I'd go for one if/when I ever saw one cheap enough. Yahoo!  I did and snagged it. I do think it's weird that even though the cast listy and the image are clearly from PART 2, the English version of the title makes it look like it is Part 1. I wonder if Part 1 was released in Turkey...and what it was called. Something I'll have to look into someday...Might want to track down ALL of the sequels from Turkey eventually. Why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Friday%20the%2013th%20Part%202%20Turkish_zpslzomtbpm.jpg)



YOUNG HANNAH QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES

This is NOT my poster---just an example from the internet. Mine is a tri-fold (which this one was also at one time...before someone decided to attempt a bad vertical fold on their own). This is a re-titling of something else (CRYPT OF...something. I forget). This poster was a freebie poster included with a poster I bought from a dealer. Cool beans. i've seen this poster around and kind of dug it...just not enough to pay for one. Now i don't have to. Yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Young%20Hannah%20Queen%20of%20the%20Vampires_zpsfzqptymg.jpg)



SPECTRE

Ah yes...FINALLY!  A real live "SPECTRE" poster that did NOT cost me $75 or $100 or whatever crazy amount people are (stupidly) buying them for. I love my Bond. Now i am caught up on ALL of the Bond posters I want/need with the exception of one double feature combo poster from way back when. I saw the movie earlier this week. LOVED IT!  It wasn't as good as SKYFALL, but it was still very good.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Spectre_zpsia7y8lpv.jpeg)




LA CASA DELGI ZOMBI (Italian):

Tenth and final poster-a-go-go for the evening is some Italian zombie movie I've never heard of (well, i probably HAVE heard of it, but I just have not gotten around to researching it fully to see what it was called when it arrived over here). WOW!  i saw the graphics of the zombie eating the woman and the other zombies rushing in and had to get it. Despite the unfortunate missing piece from the bottom boarder, i grabbed this while it was available. I had never seen this poster/image before. Groovy!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%20Degli%20Zombi%20Italian_zpszxnniuq1.jpg)

(Oh man... i just noticed there is tape all over it too. Waaagh!)



And that's all of the time we have for today, kiddies!  Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. i'll see you in December.

CHEERS!

I like watching who I bid against. There are a few guys who always seem to bid on the same stuff I am after. So when I can I just watch....then an hour or so before close I put Iin my max bids....sometimes I have to bid again......other times I just shut it down at wait till around 9 and see what happened. This way I don't get attached to something I don't have, and am happy with my winnings.

I for one also like the Turkish stuff. I also thought that Friday the 13th was the Original not part 2. I believe, and I could be wrong, just like thai posters turkish stuff just adopted our art.....in the late 80's ish.....so you will be able to get some of the sequels. I fully intend to expand on that research in the future. After my site is 100%, mural is done, and I find a damn contract for new work!

Have you seen the scouts movie yet? I heard it was similar to Zombieland. Which is a great flick IMHO. Alright I rambled long enough!   ;D

Gingerman: ZOMBIELAND was much better than SCOUTS. SCOUTS was sillier. especially at some specific points (I won't give away what happens but I'll just say Brittany Spears and Penis as two examples. You'll know what I'm talking about when you see the flick).

I'm back...a little earlier than I wanted to be, but that was because of the visit to the Kirk Hammett CLASSIC MONSTERS exhibit ( http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/board,67.0.html (http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/board,67.0.html) then see both "Looking for interviews for a movie poster book" and the "Metallica's Kirk Hammett on movie posters..."). So, I think i'll just do a quick poster post and then continue on with my hiatus.

Here are 10 new ones (all nothing exciting...except for the last one, maybe...):


MONSTER A GO-GO:

Hey! "Monster A Go-Go"?  Where have I heard THAT name before? Hmm... I already have a copy of this (I think I've posted a photo of me holding my other copy in a frame when i first got it), but that one had a title stamp on the back that bled through. It was okay--but had always bothered me. When I saw this one come up I went for it...but not too aggressively...and GOT it. Yahoo!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/monster_a_go_go_SD03765_T_zpsp5cqo78t.jpg)


DAWN OF THE DEAD (Thai):

I already have this one...but i just could NOT let it go as cheaply as it was being sold for. I hate that I do that...especially since money does not grow on trees...but...now i have 2 copies.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dawn%20of%20the%20Dead%20Thai%202_zpst8otrppa.jpg)


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (Thai):

The story that applies to DAWN OF THE DEAD above, goes for this NIGHTMARE poster as well. This one though may be earmarked for a friend for Christmas. We'll see...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/A%20Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street%20Thai%202_zpshvujgcrz.jpg)


HORROR OF THE JUNGLE (A COMPANY OF WOLVES?) (Thai):


This one is apparently (in English) called HORROR OF THE JUNGLE. But the graphics make it look like it might really be the cool (and somewhat forgotten) 80s werewolf flick  A COMPANY OF WOLVES. Hmm. I have no idea, but it was cheap enough so I took a chance...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Horror%20of%20the%20Jungle%20Thai%20possible%20Company%20of%20Wolves_zpskfz2modx.jpg)


SNOW WHITE (Re-release):

I probably already have this, but it was cheap...  Why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/snow_white_and_the_seven_dwarfs_R87_foil_BM04880_C_zpsltun8da9.jpg)


SLEEPING BEAUTY (Re-release):


Believe it or not, this is the very first paper I have on SLEEPING BEAUTY. I've tried for years to get something--always thwarted. This is probably my least favorite poster for the film, but you have to start somewhere...  I do find it interesting though that of all of the characters on the poster, the one who appears in the movie the least--Prince Phillip--is featured twice on it while everyone else only gets one shot. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/sleeping_beauty_R86_BM04880_C_zpsaxgdgw8o.jpg)


SOME LIKE IT HOT (Re-release):

I'll never be able to get a first release for this film...  I am reasonably sure i already have this 80s re-release poster, but got it just in case I don't. Love this movie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/some_like_it_hot_R80_intl_SD03750_T_zpskalloyxy.jpg)


ANIMAL HOUSE:  


I never really wanted this poster and always thought the movie was just okay--not the brilliant comic classic it has a reputation for. An acquaintance asked me about getting one of these years ago. I told him what to watch out for (fakes) and gave him places to shop for one. I never knew if he ended up scoring one or not...but it somehow put the poster on my radar. After haphazardly trying to get one for years and years, i finally did.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/animal_house_styleB_BM05082_T_zpsi6r56thc.jpg)


THE HILLS HAVE EYES:


I also already have one of these, but its in a tad rougher condition than I am happy with. This one came along and I got it. Whoo hoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/HILLS%20HAVE%20EYES_zpsh1xjokar.jpg)


SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS:


This last one is really the only one i am excited about. It was actually on my bucket/"possible dreams" list. Ooooo SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS!!!  If you've never seen it, YES it IS a real movie. It's god-awful, but awesome at the same time. I totally dig the cheesy, zippy little theme song ("Hooray for Santa Claus"). Little Pia Zadora is the little girl Martian in the upper right (below the martian with his arms curved up). WOW!  And just in time for the holiday season. Ho ho ho!!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Santa%20Claus%20Conquers%20the%20Martiuans_zpsxvh5gtup.jpg)

Okay--tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Have a groovy holiday everyone. I'm back on my hiatus until around the 1st.

CHEERS!!!!

Great artwork on it, too--very colorful.

Because I did some quick research.  ;D (And that artwork of the wolf's snout coming out of the human mouth was used on many of the poster campaigns).

Some like it hot is such a marvellous film. I would be just happy too with any paper for this film. It has the best ending? Or maybe John Ford's Man who shot Liberty Valance... Uhm... Cant decide... I guess...nobody's perfect ;)

Great poster. Need to watch the film again.

Yessir..

That.. and her performance in the theatrical production of "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweeney_Todd:_The_Demon_Barber_of_Fleet_Street

She was totally brilliant in this (As well as the 1944 film version of Gaslight)... hands down!!

How about this.....that one and the Nightmare came From the same seller..... Small world my friend, small world!  ;D

Does your Snow White 50th have the foil boarder? I noticed the rolled ones have foil, but some of the folded do not....

Hills have eyes bravo!

That is also the only Sleeping Beauty I have...give me time.

Congrats all the way around!

Uhm. How funny. I think her best was in a very small role,  truly remarkable in The Long Hot Summer her performance was very powerful.

Mind you.....uhm ehm...I tend to focus on Paul Newman .

I'm B-A-C-K from my Thanksgiving trip and short hiatus from the boards. I'll be on and off throughout the month before I go on my big hiatus...where I plan to only visit about once a month throughout 2016. Last April when i hit 50, it was my intention to slow down and only buy posters on my bucket list. That kind of fell by the wayside when I discovered the joys (and seductive temptations) of foreign posters!  Italian, French, Mexican, Spanish, German, THAI (! ! ! ! !), Japanese, Belgian, Polish, etc. Instead of buying bucket list titles, i was buying everything and anything on the planet...including a bunch of US crap-ola I didn't need.

So, once 2016 hit, i'll be trying to switch gears again. But more on that plan later...

In the meantime, i have a bunch of new stuff i'll share throughout the coming weeks (before 2016 pops up, anyway). This first batch for the last month of 2015 is snore/bore-inducing. Before we start trudging through this offering from the sludge pile, let me say hello to my recent visitors...

Rosa, it is always a delight and honor to hear from APF's resident female poster fan. Thank you for dropping by...and I agree with you on SOME LIKE IT HOT. But guess what. I have NEVER seen THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE. Shocker, huh?

ARI, do you have internet access still? For some reason, I thought you were going to be off the grid for your summer in the hills. No? Is it scorching hot there yet? Get your bikini wax done? Kowabunga!! (And Santa still wears his heavy furs down there, is that right? GEEZ!)

e, as I posted on your thread, you'll be amazed by some of the similar things I have (which I'll post next time. Promise!) to those you posted on your thread yesterday. Stay tuned and check back later in the week!

Jeff, don't tease Gingerman. Show him the way to his SNOW WHITE foil quest... He's still in his inaugural year on the site. Cut the man some slack. BESIDES, he is super busy organizing his poster website and painting his mural. He doesn't have time to search every thread in APF...   :)

Gingerman, hopefully the above will work. Ha! (I'm curious too!)

Steve Your comment has me really thinking about this site. T and the mysterious Holiday are the "owners" of this site...but Jeff is ALL OVER the place on here. How does he have a full time job AND a life AND be able to keep such a close eye on the boards? I'm baffled and amazed. Has he cloned himself? Have you any clue?

Ted, glad you dig the HILLS poster. Take a gander below. It's not nearly as nice, but...it was there and i had to get it.

Okay, now on with the absolute dullest shock-a-rama poster show yet. I hope you are sitting down (so you don't have far to fall when you pass out from sheer boredom...). Here we go-go...




THE HILLS HAVE EYES II:

Zowie!  I had seen this ill-advised sequel on video years ago. i never realized it had played theaters. I thought it was strictly a straight-to-video release. WRONG! And here's the lackluster poster to prove it. Oh well, at least Berryman had a job for a few weeks.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hills%20Have%20Eyes%202_zpsyenojpfh.jpg)


EVIL CLUTCH:

I remember reading about this in the pages of FANGORIA magazine eons ago (It's still in publication, right? I haven't picked up an issue in ages, but back in the day, i remember buying the very first issue in the late 70s with GODZILLA on the cover. THAT's how old i am, boys and girls.. EEK!). It sounded good. I had to see it. There was an old theater that kind of converted itself to an art house/revival theater that actually started showing Troma films. I really wanted to go...and when i finally got to one, I was so disappointed because it was just awful. The theater stopped showing Troma films before EVIL CLUTCH came out...but I caught it on video. Crap. Oh well...the poster is quasi-interesting. Why did I bother? Who knows?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Evil%20Clutch_zpshelcu9pe.jpg)


ASSAULT OF THE KILLER BIMBOS:


I remember seeing this poster as a coming attraction in the snack bar of an old, long-gone drive in in town back in the day. The poster is boring--and looks very wannabe Valley Girl-esque. But that title, ASSAULT OF THE KILLER BIMBOS...WOW! I had to see it. I waited and waited and waited. it NEVER played town. That should have been a sign. I caught it on video eventually...utterly forgettable. I really don't remember much about it other than they seemed to maybe be on the road the whole movie? Maybe it was a comedic chase film? Flashes of desert-like area... Or maybe I am remembering a completely different film? BIMBOS AWAY... (it was cheap.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Assault%20of%20the%20Killer%20Bimbos_zpsckfongl5.jpg)


DOLLS:

I never saw this, but looks like typical Charles Band crap-a-rama. And it had a theatrical release. Hmm. This would go with the DOLLY DEAREST poster I got a while back.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dolls_zpsrllnyjxq.jpg)


HANDS OF DEATH and BLOOD FINGERS combo:

I have NO idea what i was thinking when i bought this turd of a poster. I don't even like martial arts films. An utter waste of cash...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hands%20of%20Death%20and%20Blood%20Fingers_zps76i3j4dk.jpg)


LILO & STITCH lenticular:

I do love my lenticular posters. Ooooo. I'm always on the lookout for bargains too. I've seen the "LILO & STITCH" lenticular offered many times, but usually it is in a foreign language--German, French, Dutch, Japanese... Where the heck was English? i waited and came across one fairly reasonably priced. SOLD!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Lilo%20amp%20Stitch%20lenticular_zpsvsjkhycw.jpg)


NAKED EVIL:

Another "what was I thinking?" purchase...  This film is also known as "EXORCISM AT MIDNIGHT". I've seen both versions (on the same DVD). SNORE! It's a black & white, talky British film with absolutely NO horror whatsoever. And NO naked, NO evil and NO exorcism. Zzzzz


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Naked%20Evil%20aka%20Exorcism%20at%20Midnight_zpsgkvkbcwy.jpg)


THE CHARLIE CHAPLIN FESTIVAL (R-1940s):

I bought this?  Really?  Okay...  Uh...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/charlie_chaplin_festival_R60s_dupe3_WC00767_C_zpstjc0t8fy.jpg)


GODZILLA (2014):

I saw the movie and it was better than the Matthew Broderick GODZILLA, but not great. And the poster...such a disappointment. The bus shelter-sized one was nice, but I don't collect them that big. I settled for the one-sheet (international advance version) and only got it because it was cheap. Otherwise, why bother?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/godzilla_advance_intl_BM05110_T_reshot_T_zpshbobm5cv.jpg)


ERNEST SAVES CHRISTMAS:


I know what you are thinking...Monster A GoGo has sunk to a new low by including an ERNEST poster. Oh my STARS!!! The reason this is here is because, many years ago i stopped off at my Grandmother's one afternoon. My grandma was watching a movie. She was smiling through it and I sat and watched a little of it with her. She said "I just love this movie." Okay..., "I watch it every year when it comes on TV." Hmmm. "I remember taking your mom and Uncle Bert to see it when they were little."  Huh? I asked her what movie she was talking about. "This one," she said. "It's a Wonderful Life."  "Grandma," I told her, "That's not 'It's a Wonderful life.' That's 'Ernest Saves Christmas.' "

To this day I'll never understand how she could have confused them. But THAT is why i have this poster.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ernest%20saves%20Christmas_zpsy6jjwdhh.jpg)


And now, you are free...  Did everyone survive the onslaught of savage and naked boredom with this lot of posters? I hope so... The NEXT batch will be much groovier, i promise.

CHEERS!

I am referring to the 50th Snow White.

Chris, you have a boarder with foil? Is it tin? That can be a good insulator, especially this time of year, (or when roasting a turkey). Did this person first appear on your doorstep wrapped or rolled in it and is he/she current on the rent?

Okay... Shake the sh*t off of your shoes from the last slog through the Shock-O-Rama Poster Show.  Today's post should (hopefully) be better than yesterday's post.

Jeff and Gingerman, thank you for the amusing banter. It's always nice to see you both here.

Steve, I'm sure I have a new poster that will titillate you somewhat. I'll make sure to include it.

e this is the post that I think you will find a lot of similarities with your recent post...well, SOME anyway.

Let's take a look... (Just don't let your expectations get too high...):


A BLADE IN THE DARK (Italian):

Believe it or not, e, but when I bought this, I had no idea what the US title was. I just liked the spooky art. It was only when i saw it on your page that I realized it was A BLADE IN THE DARK. Are you sitting down? Although I have the DVD, i don't think i've ever seen it. I'm so bad. I have all of these classic Italian horror and giallos on DVD...just never got around to watching them. Where does the time go? (Oh yes...it goes shopping for posters! Duh!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%20Con%20La%20Scala%20Nel%20Buio_zpsz3nq5izo.jpg)


SUSPIRIA (Japanese Chirashi):

OOPS! Another copycat item. Mine is a chirashi (and your BITD is a locandia --or however it's spelled). I don't recall what yours was offhand. Now i HAVE seen SUSPIRIA several times. Great music, great use of color, great Italian horror! I didn't see it until the video age, but I do remember vividly when I was a kid and the commercials for it would come on TV...the creepy Goblin theme was playing while there was a lady with her back to the camera, brushing her hair and saying the poem from the film...then she turns to the camera and she's a skeleton. Then the announcer says that the only thing more frightening than the last 10 minutes of the movie are the first 82...or something like that! Yowza!  That put little Monster A GoGo on his toes. I couldn't wait to see that film. It took more than a decade, but i finally DID see it. Wowzer!

THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE (Spanish):

And another poster similar to yours, e. I don't remember yours exactly (I'm afraid to look. Is it the same? ha!) Again, I have this movie--just have never seen it. My bad...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500_zpswyp8w97g.jpg)



THE TORTURE CHAMBER OF DR. SADISM (Italian):

Steve, this it the one I thought you'd enjoy the most today. I thought the artwork was fab, but again...it's a movie I have never seen.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Torture%20Chamber%20of%20Dr%20Sadism%20Italian_zpsvipmboc1.jpg)


THE OMEN (Turkish):

I know i just got one of these not too long back. However, after years and years of trying to get one on one of the auction sites and always being outbid, I finally clued in to look elsewhere...and got one dirt cheap. When this one came up, equally dirt cheap i couldn't let it go. Maybe I'll send it to the auction house someday so others can bid on it like crazy like I had been doing for so long. LOVE the original "OMEN" movie and this Turkish poster really adds so much over the US one sheet.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Omen%20Turkish_zpsatbbxa1u.jpg)


ALIEN (Turkish):

When I got THE OMEN, i saw this available...  Again, dirt cheap. Sold!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Alien%20Turkish_zpsfa2hplbc.jpg)


CARRIE (Turkish):

Another i have been trying to get for years... The original CARRIE is such a great movie, despite the dated fashions and hair. The sequel (yes, there is one...THE RAGE-CARRIE 2), TV remake and recent theatrical remake have nothing on the first one. And you can not top the performances of Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. The Turkish poster is creepily different than the US poster (which was one of the first posters i ever had...possibly the 2nd or 3rd way back in the day...before i ever saw the movie!). Glad to have this.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/turkish_carrie_dupe3_SD03119_T_zpsngokj041.jpg)


CATHY'S CURSE (Italian):

While no where near as good as CARRIE, this Canadian rip-off was interesting enough for me (but would probably bore everyone else). The poster is sort of ...eh. But why not?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Cathys%20Curse%20Italian_zpshkncuglf.jpg)


MURDERER'S ROW and THE SILENCERS (re-release double feature combo):

I know this is sort of the poster that does NOT go with the others. It doesn't fit in with today's...nor will it fit in with the next few postings i have planned...so i'll just post it here now (it's a combo poster, which will sort of segue into the final poster at least...). I love James Bond flicks and have been tracking down the knock offs lately. While the Matt Helm flicks weren't nearly as good, Dean Martin was, well...Dean Martin-ish--cool, suave, and hip. There were lots of great leading lady co-stars in the series and it was made in the groovy 60s-a-go-go period before the whole hippie/summer of love/peace and flower power thang. I dig it. I don't have many Helm posters yet (do i have any? Maybe a WRECKING CREW that isn't up to the quality i need it to be), so i am thrilled with this combo poster. Yeah, baby!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Murderers%20Row%20and%20The%20Siilencers%20combo_zpspaw4zhk9.jpg)


BRAIN OF BLOOD and VAMPIRE PEOPLE (combo):


Hemisphere Pictures had a string of hits made in the Philippines during the mid/late 60s and early 70s. BLOOD DRINKERS was, i think, the earliest one. Then they started the successful BLOOD ISLAND series (BRIDES OF BLOOD, BEAST OF BLOOD, MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND, etc.). The company got into the habit of releasing one a year around Halloween time (from my understanding of what I've read about them) and they were very successful. When the Philippine filmmakers had trouble, they turned to Al Adamson for their next film...which, keeping with the BLOOD in the titles, was dubbed BRAIN OF BLOOD. Not connected to the other films in any way, many still consider it part of the larger BLOOD series (which, despite many taking place on BLOOD ISLAND, are all unrelated). As an added bonus to appease fans, Hemisphere released BRAIN OF BLOOD with VAMPIRE PEOPLE (which was just a re-titling of BLOOD DRINKERS). I have a lot of the BLOOD posters. I need BRIDES OF BLOOD, but have the other BLOOD ISLAND one sheets. This was an added bonus...not really a BLOOD movie, but sort of. Why not?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Brain%20of%20Blood%20Vampire%20People%20combo_zpsf3dmhzmg.jpg)


And that's all for today, boils and ghouls.

Cha-cha-cha!

Haha wow, you weren't kidding when you said you got similar stuff. You should definitely watch A Blade in the Dark when you have a chance, it's a fine giallo.

Nice Suspiria chirashi, I'm actually starting to grow a bit fond of chirashis(just started a little project where I get the chirashi counterpart to each JP poster I have...maybe that's a bit dorky :P). I'm glad you brought up the commercial for it, I saw it the other day on youtube for the first time and man I can only imagine what it was like seeing that as a kid. In case anyone is interested here it is

http://www.youtube.com/v/_8zbV_fFkYs

Ah looks to be the same The Bird with the Crystal Plumage poster, and from the same person too! He's got some other good Spanish posters, decent prices too compared to some other people ebay. Another movie you should watch soon, I think you got some movies to watch while you're on your break from here  :P

The other stuff you got is great too!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on December 02, 2015, 11:12:16 PM
Zowie!  This looks to be my THIRD posting in less than 24 hours.  

Today is an educational post...sharing things i've learned by mistakes I've made...or just from sampling things and realizing now what I like and don't like.

Gingerman, we've already talked.

e, glad you liked the posters...and THANKS for posting the trailer. The commercial was shorter--just the lady brushing her hair. But i had totally forgotten about those trippy, organic-looking breathing letters. Wow!  Whoever put that ad together was brilliant.

Steve, glad you liked the one poster I thought of you with and BRAIN OF BLOOD. I agree that BOB has a wonderfully cheezy/sleazy/horror feel to it that is hard to resist.

Okay, here are the next 10:

AMERICAN GRAFFITI (Italian pressbook)

I recently got a US "American Graffiti" even though i'm not a huge fan of the movie. When I stumbled on this...looking so perfect and pristine...and CHEAP...I was beside myself. An Italian dealer had it and others (see the next two items below). I'm still trying to learn my foreign poster sizes...and i THOUGHT this was a poster. And it's hard dealing with dealers when you don't speak their lingo...and vice/versa. I bought it. OOPS. it's a pressbook.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/AmericAN%20gRAFFITI%20PRESSBOOK%20Italian_zpsu9gzib4u.jpg)


FROM BEYOND (Spanish pressbook):

Same story as above. It looked perfect and unique and was so cheap. NOT a poster...it's a pressbook. Rats!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/From%20Beyond%20pressbook%20Spanish_zpssim0c0kn.jpg)


THE TRIUMPH OF HERCULES (Spanish pressbook):

Here is another pressbook I mistook for an incredibly stunning poster in perfect condition. Drat! Drat! DRAT!!!  Lesson learned...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Triumph%20of%20Hercules%20pressbook%20Italian_zpsttnbjhil.jpg)


VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (Spanish herald):


This is a Spanish herald---not a poster. Lesson learned #2


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%202_zpsgfzt7luv.jpg)


PIRATAS SUBMARINE ( SUBMARINE PIRATES? Spanish):

This one is a poster...and it's not so much a "lesson" i learned, I just thought it was interesting to note that the poster for this "movie" is apparently culled from episodes of the old "SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN". Nowhere on the poster does it reference the TV show, but if you look at the cast list (Lee Majors, Richard Anderson, Martin Brooks), it can't be anything else. Ha!  How funny. Looks like that shark is going to get its jaw bionically ripped open. (Que bionic sound effect!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Piratas%20Submarinos_zps7cgmqtfa.jpg)


TINTORERA (Italian):

TINTORERA is an awful, awful sucky movie. I would not recommend wasting your time on it. However the German poster (which i recently got) is pretty cool with its monster shark swimming about. I like my JAWS knock-offs and decided to go ahead and get the Italian version (which is very similar to the US version...just that there's more art around the edges in the Italian version and, oh yes, the girl victim is nude! Ha!). This is a 2F. I just got a bunch of 2Fs in today and OH MY STARS! I forgot how HUGE they are. EEEK! Lesson learned today is that I prefer the Italian one sheet size over the 2F...or, god forbid, the 4F. Eeek!  i just got a whole bunch of 2Fs (to be shared in the coming days...). Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tintorera%20Italian_zpse3ptybx1.jpg)


TINTORERA (Italian soggettone):


Yes, more TINTORERA. Just because I buy the posters is NOT an endorsement for the movie. AVOID IT---really!  This one shows the real shark with a person in its mouth. The person looks like a CPR dummy. Ha! It probably is. This poster is a soggettone or something like that. Yeah...i've decided that in addition to the too large 2F and 4fs, I'm not wild about the Italian soggettone sizes or the locandinas. They're okay--just not 'me" (I was always a US one sheet kind of guy until i ventured out into the foreign posters this year).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tintorera%20Italian%20Soggettone_zpsshtvtxts.jpg)


ENCOUNTER IN THE DEEP (Spanish):

This is not the actual poster I got --but a photo I found online to demonstrate. (The one i got was shown in close up of various quadrants--no full shot). I really don't know what I was thinking when i got this, I've never heard of this flick,,,but apparently something about aliens, the Bermuda Triangle and diving. Bound to be dumb, i'm sure..,. But the dealer was kind enough to include two fotobustas of the same movie with this. The poster is a Spanish release...but the fotobustas are for Italian releases. Whatever...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Encuentro%20en%20el%20abismo_zpsxq19xhd5.jpg)


ENCOUNTER IN THE DEEP (Italian fotobustas):


Here are the fotobustas, What I learned from these is...I'm not really wild about fotobustas either. These are my first. Except for one other i'll share later, they'll probablyt be my last. They're just (to me) glorified lobby cards...which I've purchased in the past, but really do not collect. Oh well. These were at least free.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%204_zpsayvzoc58.jpg)


Hey, i just realized. The guy in this movie is the same guy (Andres Garcia) that's in TINTORERA. Amazing!  He got another job after that stinker of a shark movie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%203_zpsrkqa39qz.jpg)


Okay. There...three posts in less than 24 hours. Shall i go for a 4th? Nah... i'll save that for later. i have stuff to do.

Have a groovy evening.

Cheers!

Re Fotobustas! I LOVE them, yes they are lobby cards, seriously some have great art, and the quality of the photos can be great (especially 60's ones)

DOLLS:

I never saw this, but looks like typical Charles Band crap-a-rama. And it had a theatrical release. Hmm. This would go with the DOLLY DEAREST poster I got a while back.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dolls_zpsrllnyjxq.jpg)


Don't write this one off too quickly, Go-Go.
It is a loving homage to classic 30s horror starring Guy Rolfe (Mr. Sardonicus), who is eerily reminiscent of Boris Karloff in his role as a mysterious toymaker.
The director of this class act is none other than Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak, etc.).
I'm glad you brought this one up as it is one I would recommend to Quadmaster Paul Waines, who is always searching for films that he might not have seen.
Its from 1987 and easily one of my favorite horror films of that decade.
Watch it and you'll thank me later.

Okay... I'll get off my DOLLS soapbox now.

CARRIE (Turkish):

Another i have been trying to get for years... The original CARRIE is such a great movie, despite the dated fashions and hair. The sequel (yes, there is one...THE RAGE-CARRIE 2), TV remake and recent theatrical remake have nothing on the first one. And you can not top the performances of Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

Great design for a great film.

God help the next exploitation fan who stands in your path, 'cause you are a true movie monster.

Okay, okay...here's a 4th posting. Whoo hoo!

Ari, apparently you ARE still online where ever you are. Cool.

Ted, thanks for bringing DOLLS to my attention. it can't be that hard to find. i'll have to track it down...

Gingerman, how is the painting coming along?

With the close of escrow on my house sale coming either late this week or early next week, I thought I'd do a mini-salute to real estate in movie posters!


LA CASA (aka EVIL DEAD) (Italian):

Let's take a look at this first house... LA CASA is the name they stuck on THE EVIL DEAD when it first played in Italy.  That kind of makes sense--it's an acceptable title---except the house in the movie looks NOTHING like the house depicted on the poster.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%207_zpsz8kflyz1.jpg)


LA CASA 2 (aka EVIL DEAD 2) (Italian):


Our next stunning model home is none other than EVIL DEAD 2, of course. It has high ceilings, low floors and things in the basement best left alone...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%206_zpskrruotev.jpg)


LA CASA 3 (aka GHOSTHOUSE) (Italian):


I know. i know...  You were expecting ARMY OF DARKNESS when we got to our lovely third CASA, weren't you? WRONG! Those wacky Italians who pay so little attention to things like copyrights. Similar to how DAWN OF THE DEAD (released as ZOMBI in Italy) got illegitimately sequelized with ZOMBI 2 (which we call ZOMBIE), those silly Italians slapped on the LA CASA moniker on anything spooky house related. In this case it's actually the totally unrelated GHOSTHOUSE.  Spooky clown doll anyone?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%203%20Ghosthouse_zpsrryuwv7n.jpg)


LA CASA 4 (aka WITCHERY) (Italian):


And here we are in the David Hasselhoff/Linda Blair WITCHERY chateau. I never dared to venture inside myself. This CASA just looks awful to me. No need to test it out.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%204%20Italian_zpszcbdcsuq.jpg)


LA CASA 5 (aka BEYOND DARKNESS) (Italian):


This CASA I've never seen before...I just never knew it existed really. Oh, but I hear it's BEYOND DARKNESS, dah-ling! That's all the rage this year, or so i hear...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%205_zpsp7ob4bd4.jpg)


LA CASA 7 (aka THE HORROR SHOW)(Italian):


Talk about misnumbering. It may be LA CASA 7 (sorry--i do NOT have LA CASA 6), but here it was released as THE HORROR SHOW when it really should have been called HOUSE 3 (which is why here there's a HOUSE, HOUSE 2, and a HOUSE 4...NO part 3).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Casa%207_zpsvwypqdbw.jpg)


LA CASA IN HELL STREET (aka SCREAM FOR HELP) (Italian):


Although there are only supposed to be 7 films in the LA CASA series, I HAVE seen a LA CASA 13 in my shopping (it was a 4F...NO THANK YOU!). Hmm. While not part of the LA CASA series, I thought you'd still like a walk through. LA CASA IN HELL STREET (interesting how the last three words in this Italian-ized title are in English) may look like a Craftsman home  or possibly a bit of a Victorian style abode, but it's actually SCREAM FOR HELP, yet another film i have not seen.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20casa%20in%20Hell%20Street%20Italian_zpsndhvuhzc.jpg)


IN QUELLA CASA BUIO OMEGA (aka BUIO OMEGA) (Italian):

This house is the home of the famed necro-chiller BUIO OMEGA. Apparently this IS a first release poster (that's what i was told). On it's initial release it was called both IN QUELLA CASA BUIO OMEGA and just BUIO OMEGA. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600_zps2cu02iqy.jpg)


LA CASA DI MARY (aka SUPERSTITION) (Italian):


I am sure I saw this flick in the theater in the 80s. I remember seeing some bat-sh*t craziness in this haunted house flick. Years l;ater when i tracked it down, I could swear i was watching a different film. This was SUPERSTITION and either there are two films with that title (that used the same one sheet) or I'm losing it...or SOMETHING! Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%209_zpsq3mk2sxj.jpg)


HOUSE OF EXORCISM (Spanish):


Mario Bava's LISA AND THE DEVIL was a deemed unreleaseable in the 70s because it was too slow paced and too cerebral. Add some reshoots of exorcism stuff and voila, you have HOUSE OF EXORCISM. I like my EXORCIST ripoffs and I liked this film. Cool poster art--very different than the US one sheet.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%2010_zps5l8eexpp.jpg)


CASTASTROFE (aka DEATH QUAKE?) (Italian soggettone or fotobusta?):


Let's head downtown a bit and...oops!  Earthquake!!!!  I am pretty sure that this CATASTROFE is a re-titling of a Japanese disaster film I saw years ago under the title DEATH QUAKE that totally rips off EARTHQUAKE but on a much over-the-top scale (with silly Godzilla-like miniature effects). This is supposed to be a fotobusta...but aren't the fotobustas that are vertical the soggettones? I have no idea what this is...)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%205_zpsqq8bg4jl.jpg)


ZOMBIE (Thai):


Lastly, there go the property values if the living dead move into your city. EEEK!  It's the Thai version of ZOMBIE!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Zombie%20Thai_zpswu9tq8wf.jpg)


And that's it for now... The bathroom is calling me. Gotta run.

CHEERS!

when I was a kid my mother had the paperback of carrie with that art on it, scared the SHIT out of me, she told me the story briefly and I READ IT, was hooked on King (books) until I was 12. I saved [pocket money and bought all his books, and then as a new one came out bought it also.
At 12 I discovered Poe and then Lovecraft (and others) and forgot about King. But still shaped my tastes I am sure.

Great stuff! Really glad you tackled the wacky La Casa series of posters, they've intrigued me for quite some time. I really like them especially because of how weirdly skewed they depict the movies with them, moreso for the Evil Deads. Love the Zombie Thai as well, I really want to get one but can't really dish that much cash out for a poster at the moment...some day.

Man, 4 posts in one day? That's my kind of shock-a-rama poster show!  happy1

With the close of escrow on my house sale coming either late this week or early next week, I thought I'd do a mini-salute to real estate in movie posters!

I'm not going to jinx it with an early CONGRATS so I will stand down for now....... ;) but hopefully you have some good news to share soon! by the way MAGG how do you file/find your posters? Have I ever asked you that?  Do you know how many you have?

The other day, I had a post with a lot of things geared towards Mister e. Today's post will have a special nod towards Jeff. See if you can spot it.

Crazy Vick...thanks for the non-jinxed (hopefully) early congrats. My fingers are crossed all goes through. I've been poster shopping as if it were going through--EEEK!  so NOT cool of me. I'm on pins and needles...  it could be tomorrow or Monday or...it could fall through at the last second. I had one more document sent to me that i had to sign and return today. Yikes!  As for my storage/cataloging of my posters or how many i have...that is a mystery. I am still in my "shack-o-rama", a "temporary" place I went to with all of my stuff when i went back to school. I had 2 houses...one a rental (that's the one i am selling) and the one I lived in (which is rented out)...but, while in school. i was forced to quite my job and had no income. I have massive debt from my school years (and poster addiction). The house sale will wipe out the credit card debt. My poster shopping I hope to curtail by limiting myself to a  list of posters in 2016. I hope it works.

This is the LAST winter I want to spend in this dump (no heat and I get all of this smoke from the chimney next door, etc). I'm hoping to move to the Bay Area (if I can land a nursing job) and eventually sell my other house/buy a new place in Washington on Whidbey Island near where my mom moved to. That I'd rent out as a vacation place (so i could have a place to stay when i visited--yet still have income coming in to help with the mortgage) while earning money in the Bay Area until i retire (or die). BUT--until i am out of the hole i am in--there's no way to count/record exactly what posters i have (which is why i love posting on here---to see what i have), etc. Everything sent to me in a tube remains in the tube. Flat/folded stuff is just put in a box...and i have a lot of boxes and tubes!  ARGH!

Rosa, glad you also found the tale of my grandmother's strange movie mistake amusing. I'm still baffled by it.  AND, just for you, i ordered THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE earlier today.

Ari I leave the Django mystery up to you. That is a HUGE mess to untangle. I bought the CARRIE novel "for my mom" for Christmas one year--so i could read it after she was done. My copy had the US poster photo on the cover---glamour Carrie and bloody Carrie. Creepy!  

Ted and Gingerman....uh, thanks. I still need to get a LA CASA 6 2F (but after that, i think i'll try to stick to 1 F...if i can find any. Yowza! The Italian posters are just huge...like the g r a n d e s from France that Thierry despises.). And Ted, your comment on the CARRIE poster (glad you groove on the poster, by the way)...  You said "God help the next exploitation fan who stands in your path, 'cause you are a true movie monster." Well, I've already accidentally outbid and bought several things out from under Gingerman's grasp!  OOPS!  I feel bad about it and have told him so. (And i've also told him that, for Christmas, i'll tell him some of my not-so-secret "secret spots" to shop!) Ha! How astute of you to see that coming. I may be a monster, but at least I'm a gentleman about it.

Neo...You snuck in at the last moment! Yes, i dig the poster. I am such a fan of the JAWS ripoffs...no matter how bad they are. And the posters are usually FAB. Thanks!

Okay...here's another batch ( a rather hodge-podge-y batch):


THE GREEN SLIME (Spanish):

I have/love the US one sheet (had a stained one for years...another of my earliest posters. Sold that off a while back and finally got a replacement this year). I stumbled on thios Spanish version--which is completely different. it was cheap, so i snapped it up!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%204_zpsa0b4kfx3.jpg)


THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN (French p e t i t e):


Cool monster art--sure is better than the US poster. Another bargain i couldn't pass up.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_small_incredible_melting_man_SD03713_T_zpswhle9slu.jpg)



NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES (Spanish):

I had no idea what this was until I googled it a few minutes ago. I just liked the art. Very creative poster...for such a schlocky movie. I wonder if i had known what this poster was for if i would have bothered. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%202_zpsokpldqvj.jpg)


THE LADY HAS BEEN RAPED (Italian):

I had no idea what this was when i picked it up either. I thought maybe it was some silly supernatural sex comedy (based on the devil guy's facial expression, OK finger gesture and obviously phallic tail. I really couldn't tell by the woman's expression if she were terrified or just surprised). OOPS!  i apologize to Rosa now if she is offended by it. I just googled the title as well. IMDB had virtually NO information about it. It was another cheap-O.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/La%20Signora%20E%20Stata%20Violentata%20Italian_zpsbskhqpjl.jpg)


THE HOWLING (Spanish):  Very different poster art for this Spanish release. The face doesn't look like a werewolf, but then it doesn't really look like anything--just creepy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%209_zpspcdh3j0m.jpg)


THE HOWLING II (Italian): After finding the Spanish HOWLING above, i couldn't believe my luck when i stumbled on this cool Italian HOWLING 2 poster. The movie is crappy...and normally (because I didn't like the film), i'd pass on the poster. But JEFF had one a while back. The more i looked at it, the more i saw how cool it really is -- regardless of the movie it represents. (Just like my NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES poster above)  Thanks for the inspiration, Jeff!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Howling%202%20italian_zpsoar4ceqa.jpg)


SWAMP OF THE RAVENS (Spanish):


I actually saw this movie not too long ago. It wasn't great, but the DVD cover was cool. Lo and behold...the cover was the movie poster! I don't know if there is an English poster for this or not--I've never seen one. I know I saw one ofd these go at auction not too long ago. i was watching it---but stopped when it went higher than i was willing to pay for it (which wasn't much. Ha!). This one was also a cheap-o.  Although the artwork is kind of primitive, i dig it--the woman wading through the swamp fild with corpses and body parts while the ravens caw away from above.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%201_zpsx9es4koc.jpg)


CRASH OF FLIGHT 401 (Spanish):

This is yet another case of a US TV movie getting theatrical play overseas. Ha! This movie is based on a true story about a flight that crashed in the swamps in Florida just after takeoff. i wish it would be released on DVD. I like my disaster flicks. I'm just sorry this is based on a real incident.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Crash%20of%20Flight%20401%20spanish_zpszckixoa7.jpg)


CRASH OF FLIGHT 401 (aka S.O.S. MIAMI AIRPORT) (Italian):

Here is the same movie as above...yet the Italian version saddled with a different  title (in English!), "S.O.S. Miami Airport"!  of the two, i think i like this poster better.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Crash%20of%20Flight%20401%20aka%20SOS%20Miamio%20Airport%20Italian_zps7jciydoo.jpg)


RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (Thai):

Here's my fave-o-rite poster o' the bunch...the awesome Thai version of "RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD"!   Oooo i needed one of these.  Just gorgeous!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Return%20of%20the%20Living%20Dead%20Thai_zps8xltxg7w.jpg)

Okay--that's enough for now. I'm hungry and freezing (remember--i have NO HEAT!  Brrr...)

Have a groovy rest of the day.

CHEERS!

Shawn!!!!!! I am so glad to read that you have ordered the film "The man who shot Liberty Valance". I do hope you enjoy. It is a masterpiece. Let me know what you think...oh hope you like it...!!

As I said, i thought it was some silly supernatural sex comedy (I do NOT read Italian). I looked it up and it IS apparently a sex comedy. It's about a woman who is convinced her husband is possessed by the devil and feels violated if he (possessed by the devil) touches her. By the end of the movie, she realizes it's all in her head...and that her analyst is the one who put the idea there. (At least that is what i understood from the translated web page i found the description on). So, apparently, the worst thing about it is the title (well, the whole film sounds forgettable, but...)

I apologize again if it bothered you.

Whidbey Island!!!!!

I adore this area. I spent around 10/11 months working in Mukilteo/Everett area for Boeing. If my memory serves me, the dock for the island is at the northern end of the Mukilteo speedway!!!!   I stayed in a nice little place not too far from the beach. I was there in 2009/10. The salmon spawned in 09, superb fishing!!!


Give this link a moment to load, but this is Boeing's 787 unit 9998 Fatigue unit. This is the tool they are using to test the fatigue life of the aircraft.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Boeing+Everett+Factory,+Everett,+WA+98203/@47.9346691,-122.282607,222m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x549001133b2ceee9:0x443d19a2005857c8 (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Boeing+Everett+Factory,+Everett,+WA+98203/@47.9346691,-122.282607,222m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x549001133b2ceee9:0x443d19a2005857c8)


To the left is the runway they used for the first test flight of the 787. I was there when it flew for the first time!!!!  To the right of the runway running up and down there are 11 aircraft. These are all mostly 787......the early stages of this program was a horrible failure. These aircraft will most likely be scrapped, as the rework and paperwork would out weigh the cost at current state. If you zoom in a little bit you will see the bridge that goes over the highway. Connecting the Boeing main plant to the airfield. Imagine driving down the highway at the moment they are moving an aircraft across the bridge. You can see some of the larger aircraft are enormous. The 747, even with the canted wings, tip to tip is just under the length of a football field.

Hi there. I have nothing new to share at the moment. I'm just here because this is my 500th comment on the boards. I want to see if my star count changes or maybe my status changes. Probably won't happen until my 1,000th comment (5,000th?), but I thought I'd see any way. Whoo hoo!

Also, not that it's all that exciting, but here is a link to the online interview with me I did with/for Amanda sheriff to help promote a new book, The overstreet Guide to Collecting Movie Posters (which I've purchased and like. It was only $15 plus postage. Good deal! Jeff is actually included in the book. Someone else from here is too apparently, but not sure who. I'm not in it--no big deal--but I was happy to do the interview any way).

I like how it turned out okay except I noticed that in the body of the text, all of the extraneous information i added that was bracketed off with parentheses "()" is now separated with commas...which makes it confusing in a few instances. Oh well.

But how exciting, huh? (Ha!  Whatever...)  Here's the link in case you didn't see it on the other thread:

Believe it or not, but I was going to throw in some Thais. Then i went back and double checked your interview...and guess what? The Thais you used were the same Thais I was going to use. Of course! Ha! So i went ahead and used all US one sheets. That's what i had the most decent photos of anyway.

Hi there... I'm B-A-C-K with 10 more new random posters I recently picked up to share!



CREEPSHOW (Italian):

Zowie!  I was looking for posters (duh) and i stumbled on this. OOooo so differrent than the US posters and yet so creepy cool. Zowie! I don't think i had seen this style before. Had to get it. especially since it wasn't very expensive (I like 'em cheap and cool!).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%206_zpslikk98av.jpg)


VAMPIRE HAPPENING (Italian):

I had no idea what this poster was for when i bought it. i still don't. (I've never heard of "VAMPIRE HAPPENING".)  The artwork was cheesy, but amusing...not the really classy stuff the Italians are known for in their posters (like the very nice poster for THE TORTURE CHAMBER OF DR SADISM I got a little while back). I just thought why not? It's kind of different.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vampire%20Happening%20Italian_zpsawsgbcdh.jpg)


ZOMBI 3 

I decided to try and pick up some of the ZOMBIE posters. Maybe that was a mistake? zOMBI 1 (aka DAWN OF THE DEAD) is super pricey...as is ZOMBI 2 (aka to us, ZOMBIE). But ZOMBI 3?  AFFORDABLE!  I've not even seen a ZOMBI 4 poster yet. Hmm. Anyway, while ZOMBI 3 was disappointing, the poster is kind of nicely done. Two (dead and rotting...but still twitching) thumbs up.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Zombie%203%20Italian_zpskqtcit3j.jpg)


THE 4D MAN

I have wanted one of these for years! I've never seen the movie, but as a guy who loves gimmicks and is wild about vintage 3D movies, who WOULDN'T be suckered by a title called THE 4D MAN!?!  It's probably a crappy flick. I wish there was some sort of gimmick they had used to with the movie in addition to the title--oh well. Glad to finally get one.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l1600%201_zpsoe3q7h2b.jpg)


PINK FLAMINGOS

I am also super glad to score this original French release poster for PINK FLAMINGOS. i have the re-release one sheet for the flick--and that's fine. But to get something vintage--is so cool. I dig John Waters flicks (the earlier ones are the better ones, in my opinion). I'd really like to score the French poster and (especially) the US one sheet for FEMALE TROUBLE. However, this PINK FLAMINGOS is a big coup for me. Color me thrilled...and I didn't have to eat any dog poop to get it. Hooray!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_small_pink_flamingos_SD03713_T_zpsz9pxoky8.jpg)


SNOW WHITE

Could this possibly be the "geatest" poster ever made? You know by now I like my kiddie matinee posters...and I am pretty sure I already have this poster (but I must have gotten it before APF. i don't see a copy on here). Long before i bought the poster, i ran across the VHS tape for this in a bargain bin. I laughed out loud in the store because there was a glaring spelling error on the front cover. Instead of reading "The greatest fairy tale..." there was a typo and it read "The geatest fairy tale...". (Found an example of the video and am showing it below. Look in the blue shy background area.) Too bad the actual poster (below the video box) does NOT have the same typo...or it very well could have been the geatest poster of all time. No, i have never seen the movie. I'm sure it's the geatest though.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Snow%20whit%20geatest%20VHS_zpseoowswkp.jpg)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Snow%20White_zpsvotzpilr.jpg)


INVINCIBLE BARBARIAN Yugoslavian):

I don't know this movie at all...but it was colorful, action-packed, and CHEAP. Wait...what year was this from? Seems like there was a 60s peplum with that name--but then, those old peplums were constantly retitled from country to country. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/yugoslavian_invincible_barbarian_ES00768_T_zpsszoarc8q.jpg)


LA VENDETTA DI URSUS (Italian):

Speaking of old peplums, I have this poster for one here. This is the original Italian poster where it was called LA VENDETTA DI URSUS. I have not tried to see what the US title was for this yet, but I doubt it was an URSUS movie by the time it reached out shores. The heroes of those old sword and sandal movies often had name changes when they crossed borders. Maciste became Hercules. Hercules became Samson. Samson became Ursus. Etc. Etc. Etc. Most of the movies that starred the character URSUS on our shores starred Ed Fury. This one stars Samson Burke (who actually played Hercules once in THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES).But I thought this was a very nicely done example of sword and sandal art from the era. Oh...i was mistaken. i just looked it up and it was released here as THE VENGEANCE OF URSUS. Groovy.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Vendetta%20of%20Ursus%20Italian_zpsz5anrjki.jpg)


SCARS OF DRACULA with HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN and COUNT DRACULA AND HIS VAMPIRE BRIDE

The last two posters are together in the same photo. There is a dealer on eBay who usually has good quality stuff. i check in from time to time to see what he has. He can be pricey,,,but once in a while you find a bargain. He was auctioning off these two posters together. I bid on them, was outbid, and didn't give it a second thought..,  Until several weeks later when he emailed me, offering them to me as the original winner never paid up. Hmm. I really wasn't interested. I already had a copy of COUNT DRACULA AND HIS VAMPIRE BRIDE. I only really wanted/needed the DRACULA/FRANKENSTEIN combo poster, and he was asking a little more than my original bid amount for them. However, he had offered me some deals in the past. So, in order to keep that little relationship alive, i agreed to buy them. Ring-a-ding-doo... I wasn't too thrilled about the deal, but whatever. I'm sure he was happy to have made the sale.

And that's all of the time we have today, kiddies. Next time, as i have done in the past with posters that have either made me think about some of you (like Steve) or been inspired by your taste in posters (like the recent one I did for "e"),,,or like the nod to "Jeff" when i got a copy of his same HOWLING 2 poster, I am doing a posting inspired by Rosa!

That will be next week some time!  (And then i have one coming up inspired by Ted! Oh boy!)

Check back later if you can.

CHEERS!

Shawn, so when you say "the latest random buys" does that mean that these posters have no real meaning of any kind to you? (impulse buys)

Or do you know or like the films they are from? Or is the the art? A combo of things?

Just curious is all.  :D

Jeff,


Oh no no no no...  My wording was probably not the best (I was fighting a big case of the sleepies after a heavy late lunch of pasta. ZZZZ. I'm still sort of zonkered out).

What i meant by random buys was that I found them at random---I was not searching for them---and that they are randomly placed on the page. There's no "theme" (like the "real estate" day when i was looking at the LA CASA series or my travel day when i had all international posters).

I dig all of the posters I bought in this posting. The only possible exception is the two poster deal (which wasn't so much of a "deal" to me when it was presented to me)--but I do like the posters (just wish they had been less expensive. Ha!) The CREEPSHOW is so cool. The VAMPIRE HAPPENING is also super nifty in a silly, comic way. I love the action in that fist for ZOMBI 3 (the movie is just so...eh...but the poster is cool!). 4D MAN i've been trying to get for ages--wow! PINK FLAMINGOS--ditto.  SNOW WHITE...hello? You must know I dig those kiddie matinee posters by now. And I really like the art in the URSUS and BARBARIAN posters. 

I wouldn't have picked up any of them if I didn't like them.  Have i seen the films for all of them? NO. CREEPSHOW I have and PINK FLAMINGOS and ZOMBI 3. The rest i haven't.

I'm sorry if I gave you a callous impression. Like i said, I've been fighting the sleepies. By and large it's the art that drew me to tonights posters.

Can you decipher an answer to your question in that jumble anywhere? Hope so...

CHEERS!

Cool, Shawn.. and thanks.  ;)

I know you are a Huge movie hound.. (and Ive also bought posters for movies I havent seen, but that has then inspired me to want to see them-- so the posters are doing their "job"..LOL).. but wanted to ask.

Ive also tripped upon things that were not expected.. and those can be some of the best. They hit me, and it's like I just know. Something about them calls out, and it's one I then want to add to my collection.

So i can totally relate to your way of thinking... For Sure.

Jeff---I have been spending way, way, WAY too much time shopping lately. I go back to work (finally) on Monday so that will stop. (I've been sooooo bored on my medical leave.) So i've been finding way too many cool posters...and spending way too much money on them.  EEK!  but i know what you mean when you say the "call out" to you. The ones in today's posting more or less all called out to me. I sometimes wish i was deaf to posters... Ha!  

Ari--Are you going to enlighten us? Now that you mention it, it does have a lot of familiar-looking elements. But i can't place any of them...  I have NOT seen the BARBARIAN movie (never heard of it), but I have seen CANNIBAL QUEEN. I also have ADDIOS UNCLE TOM...just have not watched it yet.  Good, huh?

I think many of us wish that same thing, from time to time, too Shawn.

Good to read that you are all mended and are able to get back to work, too. I know knee things can often be a long and arduous process.

The BIG eyes in the fist are FREDDY (Elm Street)
Just below his (Freddys) right eye/screen left is SWAMP THING.
Below the thumb of the fist is Grimsdyke (Peter Cushing) from Tales from the Crypt.

Hi there. It's time for the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show once again. Tonight it is a kinder, gentler, less bloody version as I post new acquisitions, some of which remind me of Rosa. (Ted, I've got a post with YOU in mind coming soon...)

Jeff & Ari, thanks for popping by since the last time I was on here. Cool Cushing pic Ari, Is that a look you aspire to? Just teasing...but the hair in that last selfie (with the Christmas card) looked pretty darn Cushing-esque!  Hee hee!

SOME LIKE IT HOT (Spanish re-releases):

Not long ago Rosa posted something in the new acquisitions--examples of Spanish and Japanese versions of the SOME LIKE IT HOT poster. I also recently got an 80s US re-release poster for the film. Well, i also just got these two Spanish posters. The top one is like the one Rosa posted (in fact, i am using that same image to illustrate mine. The picture I have for my copy is much smaller) and the other I THINK is a take on the 80s re-release poster. That 80s re-release and these two Spanish posters are my only paper on the film and the only paper I have on Monroe except for... (continued below)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%208_zpsehgux0gm.jpg)



LOVE HAPPY (Spanish):

...except for THIS Spanish poster as well! I am pretty sure I have LOVE HAPPY, but (gasp!) I have never seen it. In fact, i don't think I've ever seen a complete Marx brothers movie...just bits and pieces. Saw this Spanish poster, reasonably priced and snapped it up. (Again--the image below is NOT the actual poster I have. The photo i have to illustrate the actual piece is tiny.)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Love%20Hasppy%20spanish_zpsoaeb9goz.jpg)



THE HAPPY WORLD OF LAUREL AND HARDY (Spanish):

While I was picking up the Monroe & Marx Brothers poster, I thought I'd go ahead and add spome more classic comedy. I really dig the likenesses of Laurel & Hardy here. I have nothing else on the duo, so thought, why not? It wasn't too expensive.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%203_zpszjp6rpuj.jpg)


ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (Spanish):

Our last Spanish poster for today is for the British 70s musical "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Cool poster art (different than the US version). i remember wanting to see this film as a kid really badly. Why? They had a good PR gimmick! Not long before the film came out, my family was at a local mall. There was this huge walk through display set up down the center of the mall that was supposed to be Wonderland with several costumed characters to greet you as you walked along through it. At the end, you were given a balloon with the name of the movie (and probably the release date) on it. WOW! If only ALL movies went to such lengths to promote themselves. That was so awesome--i just had to see the flick. 


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Alices%20Adventures%20in%20Wonderland%20Spanish_zpsgg05yrbj.jpg)


HOLES (British quad):

Jumping across to England, it's quad time. HOLES thankfully was a good movie--very faithful to the book. When i was teaching 4th grade, I read HOLES to my students every year for two or three years before the movie came out (and before I left the profession...). My students LOVED the book and I used to make up voices for all of the characters so they could tell who was talking while i was reading. As i recall, the last class i read this to had the movie to look forward to the spring after we read it. When i saw it, i was so pleased it was so close to the novel. I wanted my students to really enjoy the experience...but many came to me saying they did NOT like it because the characters did NOT sound right. They didn;t sound the way I had made them sound as we read the book. Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Holes%20quad_zpsuwyllecc.jpg)


THE HOLE (British quad):

When i discovered HOLES i also stumbled on THE HOLE in 3D. Huh? What is this movie? i have never heard of it--and i'm a sucker for 3D flicks. Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Hole%203D%20quad_zpssb3ousvi.jpg)


SEPTEMBER STORM:

Speaking of 3D flicks, here's the poster for an older 3D movie that touts it's gimmick without even saying outright that it's 3D!  ha!  When SEPTEMBER STORM came out, the gimmick of 3D must have been waning as this poster screams out that the movie is in STEREO VISION (instead of 3D). Unsuspecting ticket goers were probably ticked to learn STEREO VISION was just 3D...but hopefully the movie and the 3D effects were good. I'd love to see it...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/September%20Storm_zpscn46dk1e.jpg)


FANNY HILL:

Huh?  i don't even remember buying this. Really.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fanny%20Hill_zps5xmjeqms.jpg)


ELVIS THE MOVIE:

I totally forgot I bid (very modestly) on this as well. I thought it would be a hoot. I'm no Elvis fan. At first i thought this was a concert movie or something...until i read the credits. Ha! It;'s the John Carpenter directed TV movie starring Kurt Russell that they re-released in theaters. Too funny.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Elvis%20the%20Movie_zpsdwahfd2h.jpg)


That's about it for today. Rosa, the ones towards the top are the ones that bring you to mind. And also, guess what came in the mail today? (Now I just have to find some time to watch it. Ha!)

See you next time!  Happy Hannukah if that's your thing.

ZOMBI 3 

I decided to try and pick up some of the ZOMBIE posters. Maybe that was a mistake? zOMBI 1 (aka DAWN OF THE DEAD) is super pricey...as is ZOMBI 2 (aka to us, ZOMBIE). But ZOMBI 3?  AFFORDABLE!  I've not even seen a ZOMBI 4 poster yet. Hmm. Anyway, while ZOMBI 3 was disappointing, the poster is kind of nicely done. Two (dead and rotting...but still twitching) thumbs up.

Hi there. The TED/BRUDE Day will HAVE to wait until Sunday at the earliest. So, in the mean time, here's a day that I think will appeal to...ARI!

Here's some new things:

ASTRO ZOMBIES:

I already had the re-release poster (which is very cool, with an Astro Zombie with a long machete going after a girl), but never dreamed i'd someday get this wild first release poster. Psycho-tronically groovy, baby! Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Astro%20Zombies_zpsn6wbyr9w.jpg)


THE INVISIBLE BOY (Early 70s Re-release):

Yes, it's a "kiddie matinee" poster for a re-release...but it still features Robbie the Robot.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Invisible%20Boy%20re-release_zpszinm6nlv.jpg)


MATANGO-ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE (Italian):

Zowie!  I LOVED (and was weirded out by) this movie as a kid...kind of like a strange Japanese GILLIGAN'S ISLAND with a gruesome twist. I looked for a US one sheet for years before I realized the film had gone straight to TV here...and there was no theatrical release. Imagine my pleasant surprise when i came across this Italian poster. Mamma Mia! What a find.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Matango%20Attack%20of%20the%20Mushroom%20People%20Italian_zpspd8tiorz.jpg)


TESTIMONY (Ghana):

Yep, i got myself a second Ghana poster. For some reason though, i'm just not as passionate about this one as i was about my first one... But it's still awesomely awful yet primitively cool. But what is "Testimony"? Never heard of it.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/testimony_zpshsb4yvzs.jpg)


NEKROMANTIK (German):

Oh my stars!  This is a find. This is a German poster for the bizzare-O German flick about a girl who has an affair with a corpse. Really!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Nekromantik_zpsdp2xsbjl.jpg)


DERANGED:

Speaking of necrophilia...this is the one sheet for DERANGED, one of the many horror flicks (PSYCHO, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, THREE ON A MEATHOOK, and the Buffalo Bill character from SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) that was based on Ed Gein...but this one comes closest to the real story.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Deranged_zpsv8w2wxc5.jpg)


THE SLASHER:

I had NEVER heard of this when i ran across this. Cool yet dated graphics---with a very young Joan Collins! Ha! I dig it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Slasher_zpsc6vyz0ti.jpg)


ISLAND OF THE DOOMED:

I actually already have a copy of this poster...one of my earliest posters actually. My original one is not in the best of shape...so this is an upgrade version. I've NEVER seen this film, but just ordered an Elvira Movie Macabra disk that has it on it. I'll never forget the clutching horror, i'm sure. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Island%20of%20the%20Doomed_zps4nuzrcuf.jpg)


THE WIZARD OF OZ (British Quad re-release):

OZ-some! This is kind of a cool re-release poster for the BFI WIZARD OF OZ re-release in England a few years back. Very colorful and who doesn't like OZ???


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Oz%20quad_zps0kzh5yzb.jpg)


FREAKS and DEVIL DOLL (British quad re-release combo):

Wow! FREAKS is impossible to get any paper on...except maybe for this nifty 2002 British quad re-release (with co-feature DEVIL DOLL!!) Freaky baby! I'll take it.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fraeaks%20devil%20doll%20quad%20R%202002_zpslwdcjq99.jpg)

And now, off to bed with me. I worked all day, my feet stink and I'm tired.

CHEERS!

Unsuspecting ticket goers were probably ticked to learn STEREO VISION was just 3D...but hopefully the movie and the 3D effects were good. I'd love to see it...

FANNY HILL:

Huh?  i don't even remember buying this. Really.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Fanny%20Hill_zps5xmjeqms.jpg)


ELVIS THE MOVIE:

I totally forgot I bid (very modestly) on this as well. I thought it would be a hoot. I'm no Elvis fan. At first i thought this was a concert movie or something...until i read the credits. Ha! It;'s the John Carpenter directed TV movie starring Kurt Russell that they re-released in theaters. Too funny.

That's about it for today. Rosa, the ones towards the top are the ones that bring you to mind. And also, guess what came in the mail today? (Now I just have to find some time to watch it. Ha!)

See you next time!  Happy Hannukah if that's your thing.

CHEERS!

wowowowowow I am so touched! Hehe. Nice posters... !! Love that Jano's some like it hot. You really need to start a Jano's spanish posters thread !


Ps. I want a report about the film.

Ps2 hope you realise you have to watch it ...

Ps3 i mean...you MUSt watch it

SOOOOOON!!!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on December 12, 2015, 07:36:11 PM
Hi there. Here is another quickie post... (Ted, i am still looking at one that i think you will appreciate the most tomorrow.)

First, that interview about my poster collecting experience that was used to promote the new poster book disappeared (other stuff is there now). Luckily, i tracked it down. Here is the corrected link:

http://scoop.previewsworld.com/Home/4/1/73/1017?articleID=171803

And now to say hello to everyone...

ARI, glad you dig the NEKROMANTIK. My surprise poster for you is here and i'll send it soon (probably AFTER the holidays). It's NOT a NEKROMANTIK...sorry. It's NOT even a horror movie. Ha!  You'll see what it is eventually...

STEVE: You like the Ghana poster, huh? It's kind of cool...but I favor my other one, i think. Of course, you are always partial to your first. Thanks!

ROSA: Glad you dig the ASTRO ZOMBIES and agree that the BFI quads are nice (and a great way to get paper on classic flicks),,,but what??  Holy Shock-a-rama, Batman! Rosa is not keen on THE WIZARD OF OZ???  Amazing and baffling.

e: Thanks for digging the ASTRO ZOMBIES and GHANA poster. What have you been tracking down lately?

Anyway, here's 10 more new ones (to me). I've only got a few posts left... At the beginning of the year I am planning on taking the year more or less off (allowing myself only one visit a month). It's a plan to A) save money and B) focus on "possible dreams" bucket list posters. I'll explain more later.

Anyway--on with the posters:

PIRANHA 3D (Quad):

I dig my JAWS ripoffs. I also dig my gimmick/3D flicks. While i already have the US one sheet, it was very different than this quad (which was inexpensive). SOLD! (And i'm sure Steve will notice the bikini top in the water... Ha!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Piranha%203D%20quad_zpsfzp5yaih.jpg)


PIRANHA 3DD (Quad):

Event though i was fortunate enough to "win" Crazy Vick's copy of the one sheet for PIRANHA 3DD in an emovie auction not too long back, i came upon this quad (almost identical to the one sheet) when i found the PIRANHA 3D quad. So--to have the pair in quad form (since i have a pair in one sheet form), i went for it. I still have not seen the movie though. i have it on Blu Ray 3D, but need the bluray 3D player and a 3d TV first. Argh!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Piranha%203DD%20quad_zpsxdfyaoxd.jpg)


THE TRIUMPH OF HERCULES (Spanish):

Not long ago, i accidentally bought three pressbooks that i mistook for posters (I was dealing with an italian dealer. OOPS! My bad.). The pressbook for this was among them, so when i came across the poster...which was cheap-ish...I just got it. I dig my Hercules movies.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Triumph%20of%20Hercules%20spanish_zpsfsg8x0vs.jpg)


GLADIATOR OF ROME (aka EL RETURNO DE MACISTE) (Spanish):

Another "Hercules" movie (well, without Hercules---but i call all of these type of flicks "Hercules movies"). Great depiction of Gordon Scott (the first movie Tarzan in color) as Maciste or whoever the GLADIATOR OF ROME translated into. But with his legs the way they are, it almost looks like he has to go to the bathroom. I don't suppose there are pee breaks in battle?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Gladiator%20of%20Rome%20aka%20El%20Retorno%20de%20Maciste_zpsjjfip2tl.jpg)


JUNGLE DRUMS:

I already have a copy of this poster...and it's just gorgeous! When i saw another one for very little cash, i snapped it up (Argh! Why do i do that?). This serial poster stars the LONE RANGER Clay(ton) Moore and TV's original Lois Lane (first season) Phyllis Coates

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jungle%20Drums%20of%20Africa_zpsv2rlgrr8.jpg)


JUNGLE HEADHUNTERS:

Zowie! SEE HUMAN HEADS SHRUNK TO THE SIZE OF BASEBALLS!?! Who wouldn't want a poster like this in their living room? I'm not sure what this movie is...a drama or documentary, but...wow! what wonderful poster art (and from the wholesome 1950s? Really? AMAZING!).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Jungle%20Headhunters_zpse3wdmjfp.jpg)


INTO THE STORM (Quad):

Picked up this quad of the recent 3D disaster flick when i got the PIRANHA duo.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Into%20the%20Storm%20quad_zpsk7aoiji6.jpg)


NIGHT OF A THOUSAND CATS (Spanish):

This is an awful movie--but also very funny if you are in the right mood, because it is sooooo STUPID. Ha! A rich guy flies around in a helicopter picking up women (in the park, from their apartment terraces, etc.) in the helicopter and then takes them back to his home in the jungle (!!). His house is this big, ancient stone ruins. (!?!) Hugo Stiglitz never struck me as much of a ladies man (must be the helicopter?), but he stars...as the demented killer. Once he has sex with the women, he kills them, keeps their heads in big glass jars...and feeds the rest of them to these feral stray cats he keeps trapped in this pit room in his house. WTF!? The US poster is much better, but I saw this Spanish one and thought I'd pick it up.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Night%20of%20a%201000%20Cats%20Spanish_zpsfruddosb.jpg)


LADY FRANKENSTEIN (Belgian):

Cheesy and sleazy---but could have been so much better--is the Belgian poster for LADY FRANKENSTEIN. Nice use of color. No, this is not the one that was recently sold on emovie...but i got it for just about the same price, maybe a tad cheaper?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Lady%20Frankenstein%20Belgian_zpsnvxywz6x.jpg)


ANGST (German):

Last poster for today...and i have NO IDEA what ANGST is. I HOPE it's a movie poster though. i got this from the same German dealer i got the NEKROMANTIK poster from. Wild images...looks like it would be an interesting flick.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ANGST_zpsx1rdfwdc.jpg)


And that was it...  Ten super quick-o's!  Now I really must dash off!

CHEERS!

Nice ones.

The sequel, Piranha 3DD is not on the same level as the first, IMO, but "The Hoff", etc. in 3DD are a real hoot.

Into the Storm is a neat flick, with cool cinematography and effects.  Highly recommended on 3D, as well as Piranha 3DD, and of course Piranha 3D.   8)

e: Thanks for digging the ASTRO ZOMBIES and GHANA poster. What have you been tracking down lately?
A bit of the same ol' same ol', Dario Argento posters, etc. oh and one really exciting poster :) I'll probably post a little update around christmas when I have a few days off.

Okay, here is the Ted-inspired post (well, the things towards the top are Ted-esque). Whoo hoo. The count down is on...for not only my final poster post of the year, but before I severely cut back on poster buying and APF time.

I'm writing this early with the hopes of posting it in the wee hours of the morning (California time) if/when I score that last Ted-esque item I'm hoping for... I apologize now if you visited and I didn't acknowledge you....

But let's say hello to who i know for sure came by...

NEO!  Glad to see you, as always.I did see PIRANHA 3D and INTO THE STORM in 3D...just have not seen PIRANHA 3DD. Darn it all. it didn't play anywhere near me. ARGH!

e:  Argento and one super special poster????  Oooooooo... It sounds delightful. i can NOT wait.

Okay--time for the Poster Show!!!

KING KONG (Spanish re-release):

Ooooo here is the iconic KING KONG poster image (that, I don't think was ever used as a US poster for release...even though everyone seems to think it was) on a Spanish language re-release poster. Let's give it up for the big ape.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%2013_zps7oulanhq.jpg)


KING KONG (German re-release)

AGAIN--the 8th Wonder of the World!  Here is a German re-release for KING KONG (which looks like it is called KING KONG AND THE WHITE WOMAN...or something like that...in Germany. ha!). Not the best KONG poster ever..but still KONG!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KING%20KONG%20German_zps9ulrvenr.jpg)


KING KONG ESCAPES (Italian):

If you are reading this, it means that i DID score my last minute KONG addition in a late-night auction. UGH! (I'm probably super tired). This is the Italian poster for KING KONG ESCAPES. Not the most exciting sequel not the most exciting poster---but it's still KONG!!!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20Kong%20Escapes%20Italian_zpsxxqba1my.jpg)


KING KONG (Italian re-release):

Here is my biggest KONG coup since the summer...the Italian 1960s re-release poster. Fabulous!  LOVE the color in this... This is NOT the one that was recently on eMovie. That one went for big bucks. This cost less than half of that one--thank goodness--and it was great to get it. (This was the 2nd favorite KONG after my 1956 re-release. LOVE IT!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20Kong%20R1966%20Italian%20white%20logo_zpstwgn3dsh.jpg)


HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (British quad 1950s re-release):

This is not the one that sold on Heritage Auctions. I thought I had WON that one for some reason, but when the auction ended, it was NOT me that had won it. OOPS!  Almost immediately afterwards i noticed this one for sale overseas. It seemed to be the same price., SOLD!  It was only when i went to pay for it that i realized my blunder. While the euro is pretty much equalt to a dollar, this poster's price was in pounds...which meant I had to cough up about $100 MORE that the Heritage poster went for. ARGH!  So not cool...but cool-ish poster.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hiouse%20of%20Frankenstein%20re-release%2050s%20British%20Quad_zpstz0bqpim.jpg)


THE NEW ADVENTURES OF TARZAN:

OH MY STARS!!!!  I can not believe that i have a TARZAN poster from the silent era!  Okay--i KNOW there were talkies/sound in 1935 (Hello? KING KONG was 1933 and that is all over this post). But THE NEW ADVENTURES OF TARZAN was first a silent serial...and then edited down for a silent feature, which this poster is for. Hermann Brix (who later changed his name to Bruce Bennett and had a very nice Hollywood career) stars. This isn't as exciting as an Elmo Lincoln TARZAN, for sure...but the oldest I've had to this point was one of the Lesser (as in Sol Lesser) Tarzan re-releases, TARZAN'S DESERT MYSTERY, which was one of the final (of 12) Tarzan's Johnny Weissmuller did. Golly.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/new_adventures_of_tarzan_BM02629_C%201_zpsmttui3vh.jpg)


VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED and CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED (re-release combo):

Sorry to have to use an eMovie picture (not my poster), but the dealer i am buying this from directly didn't send me a picture. i know what it looks like and i totally trust his near mint/uniused description as I have dealt with him many times before.  I don't have the one sheet for either movie---so this double feature re-release is an awesome find. YIPPIE!  Creepy movies with creepier kids. Beware their stare!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/village_of_the_damned_and_children_of_the_damned_JM02336_L_zpsrfqbrcfr.jpg)


RE-ANIMATOR:

Wow!  I have wanted one of these for a long while. i have the other poster version (photo version)--but have wanted this cool art style one for a long while. it's harder to find. cool poster for a cool movie.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/reanimator%20art%20style_zpsvzwhkpkr.jpg)


BARON BLOOD:

I've never seen the movie, but the poster has always intrigued me. Is this film any good? It's Mario Bava so it has to at least be visually stunning. Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Baron%20blood_zpskijhkdkc.jpg)


THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO

Oh my stars!  The poster for the supermarionation full-length feature is in the mail, heading my way, even as i write this. This is a dream come true. And, yes, the THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO...and I need to GO---to the bathroom and to bed!

It is on the ultra-rare 1938 re-release one-sheet, and then was used for the Portal Publication poster in the 1960s.

Hello. I'm back...posting 10 more recent acquisitions. Besides this post, I think i have enough for about 2 or 3 more posts. Once they're are all posted, that's it for the year. And I'll only be back occasionally next year.

Steve--thanks for the visit and the interesting chit-chat we pm-ed each other. VERY interesting. THANK YOU.

KING KONG VS GODZILLA (Italian):

Drat it all. This was supposed to be in the post earlier this morning. Grrr. When I stumbled on this poster (the third different one , i think, with this same title...but i liked this opne the best), I thought it must be a retitling. THE TRIUMPH OF KING KONG? Never heard of it. imagine my surprise when i discovered it was actually KING KONG VS GODZILLA! Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KING%20KONG%20VS%20GODZILLA%20Italian_zpskg93tplt.jpg)


SUSPIRIA (Spanish):

Another groovy SUSPIRIA poster. Still dig the US one sheet best, but anything SUSPIRIA is SUSPIRIAstic!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Suspiria%20spanish_zpsgo0fe2sn.jpg)


TRAUMA (Italian):

I've not seen this flick yet (what else is new?), but it was an Italian Argento...THUMBS UP!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Trauma%20Italian_zpsi4sucqo7.jpg)


BARBARIAN MASTER (Italian):

I had no idea what this was when i bought. i still don't knoiw what it is now that i found the US title. i bought this poster because it made me laugh out loud. Check out the molten-hot sword rising from the bowl...or maybe from his crotch? Ha! How phallic can you get? TOO funny. Apparently this is some 80s CONAN wannabe.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Barbarian%20Master%20Italian_zpsmrc2fdff.jpg)


FRIDAY THE 13TH (remake British quad):

About the only thing i can say that was positive about the remake of FRIDAY THE 13TH was that it had a cool poster. Not as cool as the original, but better than say... part 2, 3, 4, or 5. Ha! 

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/FRIDAY%20THE%2013th%20quad_zpsrx3x2lss.jpg)


HORROR EXPRESS:

This was kind of an oops!  I had just been contemplating an Italian HORROR EXPRESS when a dealer sent me a list of items he had for sale. This guy is reputable and I trust his grading. The only thing is--there were no pictures available. I saw HORROR EXPRESS very reasonably priced and snatched it up...and then I realized (snore) this was the boring reddish US poster and NOT the cool Italian poster I had been (evil) eyeing. Waaagh!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Horror%20Express_zpss1co55no.jpg)


HORROR EXPRESS (Italian):

So, darn it all, I had to go back and buy the Italian version as well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Horror%20Express%20Italian_zpsqmugb6kj.jpg)


SLEEPING BEAUTY (French re-release):

My 2nd (and probably final) poster ever for Disney's SLEEPING BEAUTY. Again, as with the other US one sheet for the film i got, why does Prince Erik get his self on there twice, when the titular start girl only gets on the poster once? Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_sleeping_beauty_R80s_SD03968_T_zpsezxbhwxn.jpg)


THE OMEN (Czech):

Oooooo I wanted this for a while. It will make a nice companion piece to my US and Turkish OMEN posters!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/czech_23x33_omen_SD04017_T_zps4a3vahfy.jpg)


SOCIETY (Italian):

Last poster for the evening (good, because i need to get to bed. i have to be up at 5 am for work in the morning. Blah!) is the Italian poster for the cult horror flick SOCIETY. Different art (I think i prefer the US one...but I have NOT been able to get one.)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Society%20Italian_zps7qbwpmkn.jpg)

Okay---i know it's early, but it's pumpkin time for me.

So you're the one that nabbed that Spanish Suspiria  :P. Great stuff, particularly the Argento posters of course. Unfortunately Trauma really marks Argento's decline in my opinion, I honestly kind of have a love/hate relationship with the movie. It's worth a watch anyways.

Wow Shawn. Nice batch once again. All the King Kongs are great. Your collection is now the ninth world wonder. I just rewatched King Kong from 2005 last night. Didnt remember most of the scenes. 3hrs long but Kong fighting scenes were great to see again. I forgot all about the Dinosaurs too. Any ways I hope you are enjoying everything and take a break so everyone else can find stuff too. You are buying it all! -jason

MATANGO-ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE (Italian):

Zowie!  I LOVED (and was weirded out by) this movie as a kid...kind of like a strange Japanese GILLIGAN'S ISLAND with a gruesome twist. I looked for a US one sheet for years before I realized the film had gone straight to TV here...and there was no theatrical release. Imagine my pleasant surprise when i came across this Italian poster. Mamma Mia! What a find.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Matango%20Attack%20of%20the%20Mushroom%20People%20Italian_zpspd8tiorz.jpg)


No offense to Godzilla and his kaiju brethren, but this film is my favorite from Toho and Ishiro Honda.
Weirded me out as a kid also.

ANGST (German):

Last poster for today...and i have NO IDEA what ANGST is. I HOPE it's a movie poster though. i got this from the same German dealer i got the NEKROMANTIK poster from. Wild images...looks like it would be an interesting flick.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/ANGST_zpsx1rdfwdc.jpg)


Really like the look of this one, Shawn.
Very cool.
I did some research. Yes, its a film called Fiend (1980).
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080730/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_6 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080730/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_6)

Interestingly enough, it co-stars George Stover, the creator of two superb horror fanzines back in the day -- Black Oracle and Cinemacabre.
Black Oracle was a very small mini-fanzine (maybe 3"x5"). I still have copies of them somewhere around here... probably under that stack of bodies in the corner....
I never met George, but I did buy some of his movie posters through the mail.
That was a lifetime ago, before they put this internet thingy on all these computers.
Wow... how times have changed.
 imbecile.gif
Stover, like his peers Gary Svehla of Gore Creatures and Fred Clarke of Cinefantastique, were crazy monster-movie poster collectors and reputable guys to buy from. They lived and breathed the psychotronic scene.  They researched the films, they wrote some of the best articles I have ever read about the genre and, they sold their own posters cheap and well-packaged.
Ahhhh... those were the days.....

But I digress...
Thanks for letting me wax nostalgic.
Your posters bring it out in me.
 cheers

Post time. I have 10 more to share...then only enough for 2 more full posts after that (plus maybe a mini-post., I have slowed way down, but keep buying. You can't expect me to just go cold turkey, can you?)

Quick hellos (I gotta get some more Christmas shopping/etc done. Yikes!):

e: Yes, i snagged the Spanish SUSPIRIA. Sorry. I didn't know you were watching otherwise i'd have left it. i promise not to buy any more Argento for a long, LONG time.

JASON: Glad you like the KONGs. And, I agree, the 2005 KONG was pretty great (but I still prefer the original). I am taking a break by the end of the year...but while it may seem like I am buying everything (ha!)...it still feels like everyone else is buying everything out from under me!  I'm not quite done...but more or less done. Ha!

GINGERMAN: Don't even get after me about the Czech OMEN as i totally wanted the Japanese B2 FRIDAY THE 13th...but saw you were bidding on it, so i stood down. Did you bid on the OMEN as well? i didn't see you on it when i bid. Sorry. You can have the next one.

TED: Super glad you liked (and understood about ) the MATANGO and zowie---thanks for the info on FIEND/ANGST. I looked it up on the link. I may need to see it now. THANKS!!!!

And now, on to the Shock-A-Rama Poster Show!

HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE (Italian):

You know i love my Hercules movies... Clearly, this flick has come towards the end of the Sword & Sandal era.  They didn't even bother to commission an artist for the poster--just stuck some photos on and called it good.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hercules%20the%20Invincible%20Italian_zps0itdpjaa.jpg)


MACISTE IN THE LAND OF THE CYCLOPS (Italian):

Another that I believe came towards the end of the genre's popularity. The poster is okay---but I am sure the lead actor's name is Gordon Mitchell...NOT Mitchell Gordon. Did they bother to fix it? Nope. Ha!

SAMSON AND HIS MIGHTY CHALLENGE (Italian):

This is brilliant on the part of the Italian filmmakers...getting the 4 mightiest heroes of the peplum genre together; Hercules, Samson, Maciste and Ursus. However, curiously, when it was imported to the US, only ONE of the four was highlighted (or mentioned) in the title--just SAMSON. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Samson%20and%20his%20Mighty%20Challenge%20Italian_zpsuavo5jn5.jpg)


URSUS IN THE LAND OF FIRE (Italian):

Decent art on this poster---although the depiction of Ursus looks NOTHING like blonde star Ed Fury.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Ursus%20in%20the%20Land%20of%20Fire_zpsqkqeja7t.jpg)


THE LOVES OF HERCULES (Italian):

This is the most curious poster of all... Not only is star Mickey Hargitay's first name misspelled (perhaps Micke is the Italian version of Mickey?), but the real star of the film, Jayne Mansfield (who plays two roles!) is NOT even mentioned! Yowza! I bet her agent was pissed.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Loves%20of%20Hercules%20Italian_zps6juq0me7.jpg)


DYNASTY (Italian):

Not a sword & sandal flick, but i am a sucker for 3D/gimmicks and couldn't NOT get this poster. Similar to the US version, but different artwork trying to convey the 3D effect in poster form. Cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Dynasty%20Italian_zpsbgxtg0dq.jpg)


THE HUMANOID (Italian):

I've never seen this sci-fi flick starring Richard "Jaws" Kiel, but scored the poster pretty darn cheap. I think i might need to track this flick down...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/The%20Humanoid%20Italian_zpsdjgz3vho.jpg)


ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Italian):

Ha!  I was sort of stunned when i stumbled on this Italian poster for the adult version of ALICE IN WONDERLAND from the 1970s. Ha!  Even our cheesy, low-budget crap gets imported too, apparently. Different art than ours...something for Steve to enjoy...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Alice%20in%20Wonderland%20X%20Italian_zpsfx3pbpcd.jpg)


EVIL LAUGH:

This is not my poster (hence the watermark), just an example. Picked it up cheap. I must have missed this in the 80s. Never heard of it--but kind of cool graphics.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/evil%20laugh_zpsgfpcn4pv.jpg)


BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE (Italian):

I am not familiar with this movie at all...but it's an Italian seggittone (or something like that)...a 1F (or whatever would pass for a 1F if there were such a thing.)


And that's if for now. Very few poster shows left...  Oh my stars!

Stay tuned!

CHEERS!

e: Yes, i snagged the Spanish SUSPIRIA. Sorry. I didn't know you were watching otherwise i'd have left it. i promise not to buy any more Argento for a long, LONG time.
Ha, no worries those pop up fairly often.

I like that blood of the vampire soggettone, never seen the movie either but it looks odd from that poster.

It's gonna be a little sad around here with less frequent shock-a-rama poster shows that's for sure.

Okay, here is the Ted-inspired post (well, the things towards the top are Ted-esque).
KING KONG (Spanish re-release):

Ooooo here is the iconic KING KONG poster image (that, I don't think was ever used as a US poster for release...even though everyone seems to think it was) on a Spanish language re-release poster. Let's give it up for the big ape.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/s-l500%2013_zps7oulanhq.jpg)


KING KONG (German re-release)

AGAIN--the 8th Wonder of the World!  Here is a German re-release for KING KONG (which looks like it is called KING KONG AND THE WHITE WOMAN...or something like that...in Germany. ha!). Not the best KONG poster ever..but still KONG!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KING%20KONG%20German_zps9ulrvenr.jpg)


KING KONG ESCAPES (Italian):

If you are reading this, it means that i DID score my last minute KONG addition in a late-night auction. UGH! (I'm probably super tired). This is the Italian poster for KING KONG ESCAPES. Not the most exciting sequel not the most exciting poster---but it's still KONG!!!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20Kong%20Escapes%20Italian_zpsxxqba1my.jpg)


KING KONG (Italian re-release):

Here is my biggest KONG coup since the summer...the Italian 1960s re-release poster. Fabulous!  LOVE the color in this... This is NOT the one that was recently on eMovie. That one went for big bucks. This cost less than half of that one--thank goodness--and it was great to get it. (This was the 2nd favorite KONG after my 1956 re-release. LOVE IT!)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/King%20Kong%20R1966%20Italian%20white%20logo_zpstwgn3dsh.jpg)



Jeezum crow...this Monster A Go-Go movie-poster avalanche has me running a few days behind you, man.
These Kongs are all too awesome for words...
Maybe 'Wowee-kazowee!' sums it up best?

Okay...we are getting down to the nitty gritty. After this, i have enough poster for 1 more full post and then a partial post...unless i buy more. Argh. I'm trying to save the best for last so this grouping of 10 will have not be the most exciting.

Rosa, you are sweet. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.

Ted: So glad you like the KONG stuff. Forget Elvis, Kong is the KING!

e: Saw the PR you wanted. Yikes! Pricey!  Maybe you'll find a cheaper one in the elsewhere I directed to. GOOD LOOK whatever you do.

And now, on to the SHOCK-A-RAMA Poster Show:

SABU AND THE MAGIC RING:


I came across this and was enchanted with the fantasy quality of the poster. It set me back a whole $5.50. Sure it has some obvious issues (see the corner), but it doesn't ;look to bad. How fun.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/SABU%20AND%20THE%20MAGIC%20RING_zpswvpreci9.jpg)


THE NANNY:


From the same dealer, this one set me back $5. Zowie!  Upping my later Bette Davis poster quota. I've never seen this, but she plays a nanny from Hell, right? Sounds like a hoot!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/THE%20NANNY_zpskatwgj3k.jpg)


FRIDAY THE 13TH (Japanese B2):


Gingerman snagged the one on emovie a while back---but i tracked this one down. I needed it to go with my B2 PART 2 and PART 3. This will probably be the last Japanese poster I buy as I am focusing on my bucket list in 2016. But I got one---yippie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Friday%20the%2013th%20Japanese%20B2_zps9qfmqelx.jpg)


RAIDERS OF THE LIVING DEAD:


This is such a crappy movie and the poster is a dime a dozen. i probably already have one, but just to be sure i snagged one now. Crap or not, it's still a zombie flick--sort of.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/raiders_of_the_living_dead_ES01126_L_zpswlrgjlua.jpg)


SURVIVE (German):


I stumbled upon this Germ,an poster for the exploitation classic "SURVIVE". It's the most graphic poster for the film i've seen... (well, it's not THAT graphic, but...) and I picked it up for under $15 (including shipping). Sale-a-rama!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Survive%20German_zpsvyq8jbri.jpg)


THE CRIME OF DAVID LEVENSTEIN (Italian 2F):


I had no idea what this was when i picked it up as i don't speak Italian. It looked like a nazisploitation flick (well, doesn't it?)...and it apparently kind of is, but came before the nazisploitation genre kicked into gear. THE CRIME OF DAVID LEVENSTEIN sounds like it was nazisploitation meets DEATH WISH. Levenstein is [picked out as a Jew and sent to a concentration camp. he survives and, years later, goes after those who tormented him and his family in the camps!!!  Actually, it sounds kind of good... Anyway, i really dig the artwork here. Very nice work.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vivere%20per%20Uccidere%20Italian_zps0on9exac.jpg)


THE BAD SEED:


Oooo the all-time original killer kid classic. I met Patty McCormack who played Rhoda Penmark. NOW i have the poster. AWESOME! (And I didn't have to knock anyone off to get it. Ha!)


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/IMG_3898%202_zpsuzx0anpu.jpg)


UNKNOWN TERROR:


Old B-Movie poster time. I've never seen this---looks like it was typical low budget drive-in crap? Whoo hoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/UNKNOWN%20TERROR_zps3fvxy070.jpg)


VENGEANCE OF SHE:


I may already have this---but certainly do NOT have the Ursula Andress SHE (or the original silent classic poster either). I've never seen any of the SHE flicks...but really feel i should.  They're quasi-classics, right?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vengeance%20if%20SHE_zpsgdtuxoun.jpg)


KISS THEM FOR ME:


Never saw this either, but it's JAYNE MANSFIELD...from her A-list star days (which were o' so short...). Carey Grant ius in this too. Yowza!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Kiss%20Them%20For%20Me_zps9unnvwoe.jpg)


FIRST MEN IN THE MOON:


Hooray!  Years ago i got the alternate poster (without realizing it was the alternate poster after spending big bucks on it) but really wanted this version with the cool action-packed scenes from the film added in. Love it. And DYNAMATION!!!!  I'm such a gimmick whore.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/First%20Men%20In%20The%20Moon_zpsrsmjjhbi.jpg)



Okay...we are down to only 1 full post and a fraction of another...  and less than 10 days left of 2015.

Happy holidays!

Cheers!

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on December 22, 2015, 01:26:21 PM
Hi there. This is it...the last FULL post of 10 posters. I have enough after this for one last partial post (unless i pick up a few more between now and whenever i post the last post for the year---before i cut back to monthly updates.only.  EEK!

ARI---Thanks for stopping by. Golly, I didn't even realize I had posted 2 HAMMER posters until you mentioned them. I know I have one in this post, but didn't realize that THE NANNY and VENGEANCE OF SHE were Hammer films.(I LOOKED at the posters but didn't READ them. Ha!)

ROSA---Yes, that version of the MOON poster does have a lot going on in it--which is why, when I realized I'd bought the other (dull) version years ago, I have been trying to get this one. Love it. And make sure you look closely at the first poster for today's post. Ha!


Let's see. What do i have this time:


THE VENGEANCE OF DR MABUSE (Spanish):

I really dig the art on this. it's really the only reason i bought it. It turns out that it's a Jano poster. Also note that it was produced by our own Rosa's film company. (Hee hee). I know virtually nothing about this flick, other than it;'s another early Jess Franco and that it utilizes the Dr, Mabuse character that had been around for a while before this flick.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Vengeance%20of%20Dr.%20Mabuse_zpsqjinjxue.jpg)



THE HOUSE THE SCREAMED (Italian):


Another poster i had no idea what it was, but I picked it up for the art. Nice work. The film itself has a nice atmosphere, but the scares are not there by today's standards. But the ending was totally ripped off by a popular grindhouse flick years later.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/House%20that%20Screamed%20italian_zpsuquxzd0u.jpg)


SHOCK aka BEYOND THE DOOR 2 (Italian):

Mario Bava's last flick. It's interesting, but not necessarily his best work. I have the BEYOND THE DOOR 2 one sheet, but i really wish they'd made a poster of the ad slick instead of what they ended up using for the one sheet. This original Italian poster has a nice creepy yet mysterious dread to it I dig it...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Shock%20Italian_zpsfvequxlx.jpg)



GAPPA (Italian):

GIANT MONSTER FLICK!!!  Need i say more? Ha! Pretty groovy poster too..  This cost me $11. Bargains-a-go-go always welcome at Christmas time!!! Thank you Santa!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/GAPPA_zps6lfldfoo.jpg)



FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN


I've never really seen the Hammer FRANKENSTEIN series. I have seen the DRACULA films and some other stuff---but not the FRANKENSTEINS. I saw this and bid...and left it to chance. I won surprisingly.,

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Frankenstein%20Created%20Woman_zpspjyehizb.jpg)



OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME:


My stars. The OLGA series has been a big part of my poster year. There's the whole ordeal of the THREE copies of the first poster in the series, WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN. I also picked up poster #4 in the series, MME. OLGA'S MASSAGE PARLOR. I already had a copy of this, my favorite title and poster in the series, OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME, but my copy had a corner all but torn off. i needed a new copy. The one shown is not the new one, but my new copy is in fab-o-rama shape...NM!  Whoo hoo!  now i just need OLGA'S GIRLS (and maybe--but I might already have it--OLGA'S DANCE HALL GIRLS...which is the last film of the series, but also my favorite.).

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/olgas_house_of_shame_zpsfc71u3ue.jpg)



HERCULES:


Believe it or not, this was a bucket list title---the 1959 Steve reeves HERCULES poster, the movie that started the whole crazy peplum genre. The films have al;l but been forgotten today---and the video copies available are pretty awful, but some of the better films of the genre are a real treat to watch (others are real snore-inducers).  Finally though--the first HERCULES one sheet!  Yahoo.,


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Hercules_zps1slkifxz.jpg)



ZOMBIES OF MORA TAU:


I have never seen this flick and know nothing about it, but have seen this 50s (?) poster swim into my sphere of vision a few times---and have been curious. Early zombie movies are always interesting (but not always good). Love the vintage look of the poster (well, it IS vintage. Ha!) How groovy ghoulie wonderful!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/zombies_of_mora_tau_WC02442_T_zpsxmizf79y.jpg)



NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST:


EEEK!  Here's is another wild and fab drive-in horror flick poster. No, I have not seen this either (for such a movie addict, how do i NOT see so many movies?), but I'd have been to the theater opening week for sure with this blood-drenched poster luring me in!  Yowza!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Night%20of%20the%20Blood%20Beast_zps57cdqxak.jpg)



EATEN ALIVE (British quad):


Wow!  Look at this cool quad. i love the shocking art work and the way they convey the action seemingly coming off of the screen. Unfortunately the artwork is rather tame--relying on the title to supply the real horror...but it's still nifty. This is not my actual poster--but a great example to share.  Not the best cannibal movie ever made--but a mighty tasty quad to be sure. Yum!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Eaten%20Alive%20quad_zpseej83stn.jpg)


And that's today's post. As it stands, as i write this, i only have 6 more posters left to share.  (Of course, there's an auction tonight, and Thursday,,,and Sunday there are several! Ha!) Let's see what happens.

Merry Christmas!  i hope Santa is good to you and you get that FRANKENSTEIN 6-sheet poster you've been dreaming about. Ha!

(Speaking of Christmas, I've got to go and be one of those crazy people who are doing things at the last minute... UGH!)

CHEERS!

e: Saw the PR you wanted. Yikes! Pricey!  Maybe you'll find a cheaper one in the elsewhere I directed to. GOOD LOOK whatever you do.
Yeah...I really contemplated going higher but in the end decided it was better not to. Also I totally overlooked that paper loss in the middle, and while EMP may still consider it in very good condition, that paper loss would've bothered me. Anyway I've already found a few other things with your help, so it all worked out in the end anyway.

Man so the shock-a-rama poster show is winding down, a little sad about it but hey if there's going to be more of your bucket list posters being posted than I'm certainly intrigued!

My favorites from these last two posts are The House that Screamed(I have the U.S one sheet but this Italian version is superior I think), Shock(yet again another example of our similar tastes...hint hint), Friday the 13th, and Olga's House of Shame.

GINGERMAN: Don't even get after me about the Czech OMEN as i totally wanted the Japanese B2 FRIDAY THE 13th...but saw you were bidding on it, so i stood down. Did you bid on the OMEN as well? i didn't see you on it when i bid. Sorry. You can have the next one.

I was just giving you a bit of grief my friend!  ;D I see you found a Friday the 13th B2! Congrats. Now I need to find that Czech Omen. I also got your message, I scanned over it. I will read it in more depth shortly! You are always welcome to email me should you find anything next year you want to share. I wish you the best on your list, and hope you do not leave us completely.

Okay---this could be it. This could be the LAST Shock-a-rama poster show of the year. There are auctions Thursday (but I work), Sunday, and in to next week. If I get something, i suppose i can do another quick post---or wait until my once-a-month posts in 2016.

e---Yowza!  Look at the typos in that note to you. Ha! Looks like you figured out what i was saying though. Sorry about the Italian DEEP RED (it had paper loss and was still graded "very good"?  Hmm...), Better luck in the elsewhere place.

Crazy Vick--Thanks for popping by. I'm not planning on going away for ever---just severely limiting my time on here...and my poster buying (to essential stuff only---hopefully).

Gingerman---What I said to Crazy Vick. I'm not leaving entirely. I'll be back monthly to check in. Thanks for the invitation to contact you. The same goes for me. Anyone can send me a PM or an email. Congrats again on the B2 F13.

Okay--here are the last of the posters (unless i get a few more). There are only 9 of them, instead of the full 10 I usually do.  These first three are not all that spectacular---certainly not climax-worthy---but I got them last night...and they're not too shabby. I dig them anyway. Two were on emovie, the other was just something I picked up. I totally forgot about the emovie auction until near the very end. Dang!  oh well...I guess I saved some money? Ha!


TERROR aka DELIRIUM HOUSE (Italian):

Like the others I got in the last few postings, I just picked this up as it was inexpensive and interesting. i had no idea what DELIRIUM HOUSE could be---and it took a while before i tracked it down on IMDB as TERROR. Nice artwork--that was the draw. Interesting British flick though...at least I think i am remembering the right flick. I wish the US one sheet had utilized the ad slick, which , as i recall had the title being skewered. Ha!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/TERROR%20aka%20DELIRIUM%20HOUSE%20Italian_zpsmn7ua1k7.jpg)


WOMEN'S PRISON MASSACRE (Argentinean):


It looks like this might have been an EMMANUELLE film? Laura Gemser stars, so... I liked the exploitative women in prison art--nicely done--with the sexy EMMANUELLE silhouette in the center. This auction marked the first Argentinean posters in my collection).


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/argentinean_womens_prison_massacre_SD04388_T_zpsh4z6vkco.jpg)


MOM AND DAD, GLEN OR GLENDA? and THIRD SEX (Argentinean triple feature):

WoW! Wow! WOW!!!  Someone had one of these posted elsewhere a while back and I loved it. Despite it being in Spanish, i really dig this triple feature of quasi-sex ed films...one of which is the Ed Wood classic!  Zowie!!! I just realized! I finally have some Ed Wood paper!  WHOO HOO! very COOL!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/argentinean_glen_or_glenda_and_mom_and_dad_and_third_sex_dupe1_SD03240_C_zpsvvcizet0.jpg)


THE BLACK GESTAPO


Jinkies!  I am so thrilled about this one too. My blaxploitation collection has mostly been the blaxploitation horror titles (BLACULA, DR BLACK & MR HYDE, etc.). But the other blaxploitation titles have always tempted me. I have bid, but usually get outbid. The poster for THE BLACK GESTAPO has always been my favorite. Sure, i'd love a SUPER FLY or a SLAUGHTER or a COFFY---but BLACK GESTAPO is THE (non-horror) blaxploitation poster in my opinion. Yowza!  Love it. I had the flick on video back in the vhs days. Ha!  I love my trash--and this is great trash.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/black_gestapo_BM05305_T_zpswlr5spwq.jpg)


GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER (aka GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN or GODZILLA 2):


Oh my STARS!!!!  You may remember reading in my thread about my big lament over selling (for next to nothing) my GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (original) years ago. With the end of the year approaching, I was stunned to see BOTH GIGANTIS and LAST HOUSE up for sale on an emovie auction. i thought this was a sign--and my chance--to get both posters once again. Hooray!  I won GIGANTIS (and it is a better copy than my original) but the LAST HOUSE went all kinds of crazy price-wise and I let it go... Oh well. GIGANTIS once again!  That's groovy enough for now. HOORAY!!!!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/gigantis_the_fire_monster_dupe1_SD03667_C_zpsmrxszbr0.jpg)


ZOMBIE (aka ZOMBI 2) (Italian):

Man, o' man! Am i thrilled-o-rama to get this! I had NEVER seen this ZOMBI 2 poster before---ever!  It's an original Italian poster...and i got it for under $35. CRAZY! And AWESOME!  ultra rare for sure. WOW!!!!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Zombi%202%20Italian_zpsjy0x22qc.jpg)


STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI (British re-release combo quad):

While i'm not into the whole STAR WARS thing, I stumbled upon this British quad of the original trilogy playing all together and thought I should get it. It's got to be worth more than i paid for it. People are all crazy about STAR WARS--especially right now! And--I actually LIKE this poster. Cool.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/STAR%20WARS%20triple%20feature%20quad_zpso909jbza.jpg)


THE DISEMBODIED:


Oooo...love my B-movie horror flicks!  This one has such great imagery---a skull, a scantily clad woman performing voodoo rites, and cool spooky lettering. Allison (the 50ft Woman herself) Hayes stars! Zowie!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/disembodied_KC00162_T_zpsz40qwo7y.jpg)


MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1953 re-release):


I know this is a re-release poster, but what an awesome poster it is---KING KONG's cousin MIGHTY JOE YOUNG!!!  WOW! I've wanted a MJY poster forever as well. Whoo hoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/MIGHTY%20JOE%20YOUNG%20R1953_zps1qc9eulq.jpg)

Anyway, that may very well be the LAST of the Shock-A-Rama Poster Shows until my once-a-month visits starting in 2016. I will do at least ONE more post this year telling you my plans for next year---and there may be a poster or two to share then. We'll see.

Until then, have a super duper Merry Christmas and a cha-cha-cha groovy New Year!

CHEERS!

Hi there. I wasn't planning on any more posts...but auctions happened and I won. Argh!  This is the main reason i am imposing strict buying rules on myself in the coming year. I just spend too much money. All last fall, i knew I was going to sell my house---so I charged posters left and right, as I planned on paying off my credit cards when i did sell the house. I sold the house, paid off the cards...and still keep buying like crazy with the profits from the sale. I don't want to poop all of the money away, so i MUST stop my spending by slapping rules on myself. Jeepers!  i mean all of the posters below are nice (well...), but I certainly did NOT "need" any of them....and there is at least another full postings worth of posters left to share! ARGH!

ARI--Glad you like the ZOMBI 2 poster. But i really dig your ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS poster. AWESOME!!!!!!!!

TED--Hmm. Glad you liked the posters, but I am stunned that you seemed to like the one for TERROR the most/best.  As always, thanks for visiting.

ROSA---I don't know if you've visited lately or will visit in the near future,. I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow I am heading to the Bay Area via train and have packed THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE to watch on the way up. Whoo hoo!

Okay--here are ten new posters I really could have lived without:

LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA'HOOLE:

I actually wanted to see this (sort of) when it came out. No humans--just animals (owls?). And in 3D? It looked interesting. i bought the 3D blu ray---just have no way to watch it yet. But did I "need" the poster? No.

STONE FLOWER:


I opted to bid on this because it was old (40s) and had good (not great) art work and was in very good condition. But I didn't love it. I'd never even heard of this flick... Something else i could have lived without...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/stone_flower_SD03920_T_zpsp7sxgahd.jpg)


TRUE LIES:

I like spy movies, James Bond especially. While i may already have this poster, I'm not positive if i do or not. I'm no fan of Ahh-nold's but I do like Jamie Lee Curtis. Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/true_lies_styleB_SD03851_L_zpsdgjv1ldz.jpg)



TERMINATOR: GENESIS:

I didn't bother to see this or Part 3 (this is Part 5, right?) I don't have any of the TERMINATOR posters (at least, i don't think i do). Why did i feel the need to go after this one? Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/terminator_genisys_advance_dupe3_SG00142_C_zps9yvi0wka.jpg)



THE CRYING GAME:

This was a pretty good little flick, but I figured out the "gimmick" early on. (I was surprised at how they chose to "reveal" the truth though--unexpected!  EEK!) But did I need the poster? No.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/crying_game_WC02629_T_zpszsfldqhn.jpg)


PLEASURE IS MY BUSINESS:

This stars the real Happy Hooker, Xaviera Hollander. It was in great condition and only going for $1. I bid $2---and won it. ($2 really being $16 with buyers premiums, etc).  Ooops. I didn't need this.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Pleasure%20is%20My%20Business_zpsvsyssqwp.jpg)


ROOM 11:

Despite the stolen BOB, CAROL, TED, AND ALICE pose on the bottom of this poster, there's nothing to write home about. This came with PLEASURE IS MY BUSINESS.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Room%2011_zpscskdvazu.jpg)


THE SINFUL BED:

Another freebie with the PLEASURE IS MY BUSINESS poster. Whoopie.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/thesinfulbed_zps9k79wwde.jpg)


LIVE AND LET DIE (JAMES BOND FILM FESTIVAL re-release):


I've only half-heartedly tried to get this poster over the years. The artwork looks lifted from THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN instead of LIVE AND LET DIE. Oh well.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/James%20Bond%20Film%20Festival%20Live%20and%20Let%20Die_zpsu0y1tfkk.jpg)


OCTOPUSSY (Japanese B2):

And Bond---Japanese style in this B2. Totally not necessary as I have the US one sheet.


I have another ten to post later---and a few after that. Ugh!  Good thing 2015 is almost over.

Happy almost new year.

Cheers!

Well I just watched your video on youtube of your framed posters... all I can say is WOW! Both impressed by the posters and that you framed that many of them, I got annoyed after framing 4 :P. I'm curious if you ever plan on cataloging all of your posters? Probably going to be quite the project!

+ 1 

And hope you enjoyed the film. It is a strange one, it seems an old, harmless western but soon one can see why it is a masterpiece. And that ending...

Hi there. Here is another batch of recent posters---all nice, but things I really could have lived without (well, the last three I may have "needed". Hmm.) Yikes!  I am running out of days. I'll need to post a few more tomorrow along with my plans for 2016.

e--thanks for watching that old video (made in 2008---seven, almost eight years ago!).  Since getting another copy of GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER, the only poster in that video that I no longer own is the original LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. I gave up the folly of trying to frame them all---but not immediately after the video was made--so there are still several dozen other posters that actually were framed (some left out of the video accidentally---others that were framed after i made it) that are not shown.  As for cataloging them, I am feeling pressure to do so. An insurance guy needs me to do just that. So, sometime this spring when it's dry and I have several days off in a row, I plan to dig all of my posters out---take all of the boxes, tubes, and frames to a hotel room or someplace I'll have space, catalog and photograph them as proof for the insurance people. It will be a HUGE job as i do literally have THOUSANDS of posters...but it needs to be done, because even i am not sure what i have and don';t have. I'll share that ordeal on here when i get to it.

Rosa---I saw the film on the train (which was weird because the film opens and closes with a train). I also must say I figured out the ending LONG before the incident in the film occurred, I was a bit disappointed the song by Gene Pitney was not included---but it would have seemed out of place, i suppose. But thank you for the recommendation.

Okay--here are the posters:


ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS:


Did i need this? No. But I am reasonably sure I have all of the Mel Brooks posters from BLAZING SADDLES or YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (whichever came first) onward. I don't have anything before then (i.e. THE PRODUCERS) though. I probably have this already, but just to be sure...


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/robin_hood_men_in_tights_ES01092_L_zpser1h5eeo.jpg)


MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.:

I know this was a big box office dud...but I heard it was good (?), I kind of want to see it and the stark red and blue hues in the poster really grabbed my attention.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/man_from_uncle_advance_ES01092_L_zpspo9a4mck.jpg)


RETURN TO HORROR HIGH:

I remember going to see this in the theater with something called MY DEMON LOVER. MY DEMON LOVER played first, and for one reason or another, my date and i never saw the 2nd feature (I'll leave just WHY to your imagination. Ha!). I've always wanted to see it though because, of the two movies, that was the one i really wanted to see. Ha! Oh well... I have to poster to taunt me now until i finally DO see the flick.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/return_to_horror_high_ES00445_T_zpsn6ufvlwl.jpg)


SOLE SURVIVOR:

Never saw this movie, but I've seen the poster now and again. it's interesting...so i finally got one.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/sole_survivor_SD04011_T_zpswqdjxmlo.jpg)


THE OTHER SIDE OF MADNESS:

A creepy Charles Manson exploitation movie poster? Zowie!  Every cheesy poster collector in my age bracket should have at least one.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/other_side_of_madness_dupe2_HN03073_C_zpsh4nvohbn.jpg)


PREDATOR:

Just because it's a cult classic and inspired a series. i'll go ahead and get this first poster, but I'll pass on the sequels.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/predator_ES01094_L_zpshgjlllok.jpg)


RISKY BUSINESS:

I saw this movie (in the theaters) way, way after everyone else did. It was a huge hit and my expectations for it were very high because of it. When i finally saw it, i was utterly disappointed. BUT, when i bid on this classic 80s poster, despite my lack of feelings for the movie, I was stunned to learn that this image---which I had always assumed was an early photoshop thing (since i never bothered to look at it that closely)--was actually a painting by Struzan! Looking at it more closely, i can see that now. Wow!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/risky_business_SD03273_C_zpsweqd3iaq.jpg)


TIME TRAVELERS:

I've never seen this flick, but the poster is cool and always seems to escape my bidding grasp===until now. Whoo hoo!


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Time%20Travelers_zpszbzyo62s.jpg)


RARE EXPORTS:

I've been curious about this Christmas horror (?) flick for some time. i should just buy it perhaps? Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/rare_exports_BM05072_T_zps6gfeiinx.jpg)


IN LIKE FLINT:

Although the first FLINT movie is better, I am thrilled to FINALLY get a FLINT poster!  After the Bond flicks but before the MATT HELM flicks, I dig my FLINT films! Super happy to finally have a poster for one. Yahoo.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/In%20Like%20Flint_zpscwucwdvw.jpg)


I have others that i MUST post tomorrow since tomorrow is the last day of 2015. Where has the year gone?

See you tomorrow.

Cheers!

Nice 3D Time Travellers

MAGG you must have averaged a poster purchase every 4 hours throughout all of 2015!  thumbsup.gif

Post by: Monster_A_GoGo on December 31, 2015, 12:04:05 PM
Okay, here it is the LAST day of the year and this is my LAST post on my thread (I may visit some of the other threads before the day is out...) before my self-imposed absence from APF starts. As I've been saying, I am leaving because--since joining--movie posters have consumed all of my energy (and wallet)--especially towards the end of the year. I maxed out my credit cards buying posters because I knew i was going to sell my house. After selling the house and paying off the cards, here i am spending my meager profits on the house (which i still need to pay taxes on--eeek!), because I am only giving myself until the end of the year to shop without guidelines. Starting at midnight tonight, I really need to stop being so poster happy and buying nearly everything I see that amuses me. NO. i need to focus on my bucket list of "possible dreams" (I won't even attempt the impossible ones...like any original Universal posters...) and SAVE $$$ for the higher-priced items on my list.

That's NOT to say i won't be checking in. I plan to visit about once a month, around the 15th or so (that works out great because that will mean I only have to go 2 weeks without APF at the beginning, instead of going cold turkey for a full month!).  And if anyone wants to reach me (even anyone I've never communicated with before) between my visits, all you need to do is send me a PM or (preferably--so i don't have to come back to the site to reply) an email. I'll post my purchases (if any) when i do check in as well.

I kind of want to limit myself to just 13 searches...12 main searches (I figured one for each month of the year was good enough. The 13 is sort of a catch all... I'll explain below). While my bucket list is large, these lucky 13 are a good way to help me stay focused. If I get one, i can add in a new search.

Here they are (if you are curious):

1. THE UNDEAD


2.  The AZTEC MUMMY series (Mexico)


3. THE BLOB (original)


4. THE BIRDS


5. HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (original)


6.  BATMAN (60s)


7.   I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (original release)


8. THE BODY SNATCHERS (original release)


9. vintage 3D posters


10.  BLACKENSTEIN / BLACK FRANKENSTEIN


11. Andy Milligan horror titles I don't have (GURU THE MAD MONK, THE BODY BENEATH, etc.)


12. HG LEWIS horror titles I don't have yet (COLOR ME BLOOD RED, WIZARD OF GORE)

13. Anything needed to finish off a series I've started (i.e. OLGA'S GIRLS, LA CASA 6, PLANET OF THE APES (original), EVIL DEAD (Thai), etc .GOLDFINGER/DR. NO combo re-release poster, etc.)

I got so many things from my bucket list this past year. It's really been a good poster year. If I only get ONE thing from this list in the coming year, i won't be disappointed.

Which means that after today I will NOT be bidding on anything that is not on my list (so--eeek!  I need to make my last minute bids on all future emovie auctions up and running and put in all of my snipes for Heritage right away! Today is my last chance and i think i can snipe this week's, next week's and part of the big March auction on Heritage...and will try to bid on emovie's auctions for next Thursday later tonight... ) I'll undoubtedly land a few titles in the coming days from those future auctions I'll bid on--and those I'll post when i visit.

In the mean time, here are the LAST (again) posters i have for the year, (If i do happen to buy any more between now and midnight, i'll share those when i visit as well).


KILLING BIRDS (Italian):

I've had this for a while but it somehow never got posted. I thought it was interesting that this Italian poster's title is actually in English. KILLING BIRDS was released here (on DVD) as ZOMBIE 5: KILLING BIRDS. I have a copy and have seen it---but I've never really been sure how the ZOMBIE 5 label got stuck on ity, since apparently in italy it was NOT Zombi 5 either. Hmm


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/KILLING%20BIRDS%20Italian_zpsjrsejiqx.jpg)


DAY OF THE BEAST:

I bought this because I am curious about this film. I almost bought this on DVD, but the dealer ran out of them and couldn't get more. There are others, but they have the title in Spanish on the DVD cover.  I know this is dumb but, because i know an English cover is available (like this English poster) i am holding out for that DVD version,. Anyone see this flick? Is it any good?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/day_of_the_beast_dupe4_KC00192_T_zpsjzsw6hqh.jpg)


SUPER FLY:

The other day I got my long-time ultimate (non-horror)  Blaxploitation prize poster, THE BLACK GESTAPO. When i was writing about that beauty, I mentioned how it was my fave even more so than my 2nd fave (non-horror) blaxploitation title SUPER FLY. Imagine my delight when I ended up getting SUPER FLY as well!  OH MY STARS!!!! I am uber thrilled!.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Super%20Fly_zpszif7hwss.jpg)



THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK (Italian re-release):

I bought this ...and then noticed another copy for sale on emovie this week, I didn't pay that much for my copy...but it will be interesting to see how much the emovie one goes for. Did i get a bargain or not? Hmm.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/blog%20stuff/Horrible%20Dr%20Hitchcock%20Italian_zpsvpjomi9s.jpg)



THE LAST CANNIBAL WORLD (Italian):

I have been watching this poster for a while and decided to pick it up before my self-imposed poster buying rules go into effect. After 2015, I will probably never buy another foreign poster--except for the ones I need to complete certain series (LA CASA 6 Italian, EVIL DEAD Thai, etc.). I do like my cannibal flicks and already have the US one sheet for this...but why not on the original Italian version?


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Last%20Cannibal%20World%20Italian_zpsyc3wo5jd.jpg)


HELL TRAIN (Italian):

The dealer who sold me THE LAST CANNIBAL WORLD poster approached me about some other posters he had for sale. He had two nazisploitation titles I couldn't resist (original Italian releases). This was one of them. He also had this cool ILSA poster (Italian) that someone snatched away from me at the last second. oh well/ These are nice...in their own sleazy way.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/DSCN5614_zpsyjylqfbn.jpg)


DEPORTED WOMEN OF THE SS SPECIAL SECTION (Italian):

This is the other nazisploitation poster from the dealer. What an incredible find (for someone into trash like this...)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/DSCN5606_zpsreps8ibt.jpg)



SS GIRLS (Italian):

Yikes! I am surprised this poster was actually ever printed.  It's almost offensive (and Rosa, i apologize if it bothers you.). I saw this and realized this had to be rare...and bought it right away. The dealer had 4 copies, all in near-mint condition, all for about $25---a steal! I didn't realize it when I bought it, but this poster is for what was released here as SS GIRLS. The US one sheet for SS GIRLS was one of my very first posters I purchased at the beginning of the year. I thought getting this was an amazing coincidence now that the year is ending.  Anyway, with the disturbing image, near-mint condition, and the fact it was a nazisploitation title, I told myself I would go back and buy another copy to sell down the road...as it was too good of a deal (and so cheap!) not to. I had purchased the poster just before going to bed and the plan was to buy another first thing in the morning. I woke up several times thinking about it--but waited for morning. When i finally got up and went to get another I was stunned to see that the remaining three were already GONE! Yowza!  I was so lucky to get this one.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Private%20House%20of%20the%20SS%20Italian_zps8eqzh5ea.jpg)



THE BLOOD OF DRACULA:


I was trying to decide which of my final remaining posters would be the best one to fade out with. I picked this one...even though it's yet another film I have (gasp!) never seen (at least i don't think i have). I have seen this pop up now and again---cool image of the vampire chick with the crazy eyebrow-esque hair that grows into her regular hair. What is that all about? Wild! Looks like a great B movie! What a great way to end the SHOCK-A-RAMA POSTER SHOW for 2015.


(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Blood%20of%20Dracula_zpsh8eytdkj.jpg)


STEVE---Thanks for checking in. I am glad you dig the TIME TRAVELERS. And yes,, it FEELS like I really HAVE been buying a poster every 4 hours. That really needs to STOP. I hope I can control myself like i plan to. Thierry said somewhere (maybe in the thread he started on OUR BEST POSTERS OF 2015 or something like that) that he had purchased more than 1200 posters for the year so far. While that is great for him and he has some wonderfully awesome stuff and apparently can afford it, I don't want that to be me. I can't afford that to be me. I really do need to rein things in and focus on my poster goals....and watch my finances.

Anyway, i hope you all have a super groovilicious cha-cha awesome new year (and a fantastic Fake Jan Day on Jan. 2). May all of your poster dreams come true! I am anxious to see YOUR new additions when I get back!

I'll see you in a few weeks. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

CHEERS!!!!!!

As usual, Rosa's right. El dia de la bestia is a fascinating, funny film. You should check it out asap, along with anything by De la Iglesia.

Y ya que estamos Rosa, mas adelante tendrás que ayudarme justamente con un poster de esta peli...  ;)

Hi there. It's the middle of the month...and I'm back, as promised. It was sooooo HARD to stay away, In all fairness, I have popped on momentarily now and again (whenever i get a notice that something new has been added to a thread I follow...)--but never stay long enough to write a response. I'm trying to avoid the forum to damper my poster mania and save some money. How is that working for me? Well...It's really too early to say.  i do have a whole lot of new posters to share with you (I'm breaking this post into two posts. i'll post the other half of it later tonight when I get home from work...). While that might SOUND like failure (and it kind of is), the bulk of them (especially the ones on this posting) were made via pre-bidding and or setting up snipes prior to my Dec. 31st, 2015 self-imposed deadline. Others have been acquired in the same way. I don't think--except for one instance which i will explain in the next posting---that I've even bothered to watch (or even remembered to watch) the auctions as they happen live. I consider that a good thing. That means whatever i was outbid on i did NOT fight (and bid higher) to get.

Before getting to the posters though, let me say hello to my guests who visited while i have been away...

STEVE:
Nice pickups, especially the NAZI ones.
See you every few days here

Hey Steve!  Always nice to see you. Glad you like the Nazi ones. Weird i'd end the year with such unpleasant Nazisploitation stuff...but you really can't pick what will ;pop up when. Thanks for the note...and yes. You are seeing me NOW and , after my Part 2 posting, you'll see me back in mid-February. Cheers!!!


CRAZY VICK:
What a way to end the year!  One of your better albeit disturbing threads MAGG!
I really like the Manson one in the earlier post too.  Go-go and have a great 2016!

HI ya, Crazy Vick!  I just said the same thing to Steve about ending my poster year on such a bizarre and disturbing poster note...but what are you going to do? NOT buy posters when you have the chance? Glad you liked them and the MANSON poster too. Thanks for the well wishes for the new year. You have yourself a go-go groovy 2016 as well, pal!  CHEERS!

ROSA:
   Maaaan... The Day of The Beast "Dia de la Bestia" is such a fantastic film by Director Alex de la Iglesias. You will love it,it is half comedy and half something else.

Rosa!  Thanks for the thumbs up word on DAY OF THE BEAST. i'll get a copy sooner or later and check it out. I'm really curious now. CHEERS!


MATIAS:

Matias!  What an honor to have you stop by. Thanks!  I am glad to hear you second Rosa's enthusiasm for DAY OF THE BEAST. I really MUST check it out.
You also had this to say about my recent purchase of my first Argentine posters:
That's a road with no return my friend...
Congrats on the triple bill. I got me one of those recently too. Lovely piece of paper  ;D

I concur. I really, REALLY love that triple bill. Glad you have one too. In fact, i think that when you posted yours, the seed was planted in my head that I MUST also get one. Thanks!

TED:
My, oh my.
They just don't make 'em like this anymore.

Zowie!  i am glad you liked it...and surprised by all of the positive feedback on the Nazisploitation stuff i found. Yowza!  I thought I was the ONLY one who liked schlock like that! Ha!


Okay--it's poster time!  Let's get part 1 of the January Shock-A-Rama Poster Show going... (but fair warning. i'm saving the better stuff for tomorrow...)!.


CALIGULA AND MESSALINA (Italian 4F):

This poster, and several of the posters below, was part of the bidding frenzy I found myself in on DFec. 31st. I bid on almost anything and everything remotely interesting that was due to close after the 1st. I did this because of my self-imposed restrictions on what i could buy this year. This was my last free-for-all. And I learned a lesson, too. Most of the really good stuff ended up getting outbid on...and the stuff that was "just okay" that i didn't really need...became mine. And...eeek! This is a 4F. I never buy 4Fs. I don't do well with posters in two parts. Oh well.

CALIGULA AND MESSALINA (Italian 2 F):

Another mad-dash bid...and another poster I could have lived without.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/italian_1p_caligula_and_messalina_SD04313_L_zpslszilrme.jpg)



NIGHTMARE ON PORN STREET(Japanese B2):

Speaking of posters I did not need...here's THIS! What was I thinking? Ha-ha...a porn parody of the Elm Street series...but did i need it? NO!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/japanese_b2_nightmare_on_porn_street_a_BM05183_L_zpsqtdgh5vb.jpg)



METAMORPHOSIS (Japanese B2):

This one was kind of interesting...but nothing I really had to have...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/japanese_b2_metamorphosis_a_BM05183_L_zpsdciwiyzu.jpg)



MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (Japanese B2):

I bid on several Japanese/Asian Bond posters...and was outbid on all of them except this one...which was the one i most wanted to be outbid on. Why? Because i already have the US one sheet...which this looks just like minus the Asian characters. Oh well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/japanese_b2_man_with_the_golden_gun_KC00146_T_zpsapo4arsz.jpg)



SPECTRE (Advance):

Now that SPECTRE has come and gone, the posters are more affordable. I got the advance poster and...it's kind of dull actually. Hmm.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/spectre%20advance_zpsuvoalcpk.jpg)



JOURNEY BACK TO OZ (Video):

I bought this earlier this week---so my end of the year last minute bid-o-rama does not explain this. I'm using self-imposed rule #13--finishing off series I have already started. i have a collection of OZ posters and while I already have the one sheet for this flick, I thought I'd pick up this video poster for it as well.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Journey%20Back%20to%20Oz%20video_zpsd6jnlvku.jpg)



TRON:

I already had some posters from TRON 2 (whatever it was called), so...

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Tron_zpspjrhxpku.jpg)



HERCULES AND THE MASKED RIDER (French Affiche Grande):

Hercules/sword & sandal/peplum flicks are a fave. This French poster is cool...and one of the last of the last minute bidding frenzy bids made before 2016. Notice how HERCULES is someone else when released in France? Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_hercules_and_the_masked_rider_BM05474_T_zpsljxefnkl.jpg)



THE GOONIES:

A end of the year snipe that ended up as a win this year..

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Goonies_zpsnccb77nc.jpg)



HUNCHBACK OF THE MORGUE:

Another poster I didn't really need...but won anyway.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_hunchback_of_the_morgue_BM05461_T_zpsnzn0uq0i.jpg)



BLOOD OF THE EXECUTIONER (French-affiche grande):

I like this one--and other bid last year/won this year thing. I know nothing about the flick though.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/french_1p_blood_of_the_executioner_SD04304_T_zpsfglkrc5n.jpg)

While none of these posters are bad...for the most part they really do not "do it" for me. This was a HUGE lesson for me and my buying/bidding habits. I really need to focus on things I really like/need/want...not just things that are "okay".

The batch i'll share later tonight (?) has much better stuff...but a few more bid on whatever oops-es. Hopefully when i am back in February I'll have fewer posters--but nicer ones still.

CHEERS!

Putting a limit has worked well for me. I just buy anything I can find on around 15 films. And IF and only IF the price is too cheap and the funds are available I go for other stuff I find interesting.

Personally, and it's all very personal, of course, but I don't think you should ever spend money you don't have on posters, which are, by essence, not essential and frivolous.  I only buy posters with extra money, meaning money that I do not need to live.  I'm very strict about this.  I know of a few people who have maxed out their credit cards to buy posters, and I think it's a very risky endeavor.

The Nightmare on Porn Street gave me a laugh...Looking forward to what's next.

This is a 4F. I never buy 4Fs. I don't do well with posters in two parts. Oh well.

Toss out the top half, it doesn't add much, unless you are a horse head fan   :P

Hi there. Here is Part 2 of my monthly post for my thread. The previous post was not that exciting (but it did have some nice things). But this post has me excited. And I get more excited the further down today's list I go. Wait until you see the last one. OH MY STARS!!!! I can NOT believe it is mine!

But I am getting ahead of myself... First I need to say hello to those who visited today.

MATIAS: I like your advice. But instead of focusing on 15 titles and buying posters for them in various versions, I am focusing (well, I am supposed to be...it hasn't quite worked that way yet) on 13 titles /types/series of posters I do not have yet. Hopefully that will keep me from buying things I don't really need like the CALIGULA AND MESSALINA titles. I'm hoping that the further into the year i go, the more disciplined I become... Fingers crossed.

THIERRY: I hear you. Getting deep in credit card debt, etc. is exactly what I am trying to avoid by this "experiment". I am currently "debt free" (except for some student loans) because i sold a house. But I don't want to poop all of the house profits away. I am actually buying less than i was last month (or  the month before---or the month before that) right now. I hope I can get myself in the habit of just getting what i "need" and avoiding the extraneous stuff. But thanks for the sound advice.

e: I hear you. It gave me a chuckle too...and then I bought it and really looked at it. Didn't need it. But it's too late...

STEVE: Of COURSE!  I should have KNOWN you would zero in on that one. Ha! Nice to see you!

Now let's take a look at the posters and see what/why i got them

FAIRY TALES:

This is from a Heritage Auction--AFTER the Dec. 31st frenzy. I still sniped this auction--didn't see it happen. The outcome was a surprise. I opted to try and get this one as i have a collection of "adult" fairy tale movie posters (ALICE IN WONDERLAND, EROTIC ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO, CINDERELLA, THE EXOTIC ADVENTURES OF ZORRO, etc.). Did i need it? Not really. But glad i have it.

JULIET OF THE SPIRITS:

Wow! I have no idea what this is or how i bid on it. I think i must have made a goof when i was doing my snipes. I know it's a Fellini film...but only because it says so on the poster. i've never seen it, never even heard of it...(and, shocking I know, but I've never seen a Fellini film!). but it's a cool poster--snipe goof or not!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Juliet%20of%20the%20Spirits_zps0kkfppkf.jpg)



VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (Japanese B2):

NOT the most attractive poster ever, but VALLEY OF THE DOLLS is a camp classic that has been a personal fave for years and years! This Japanese B2 was the only thing i bid on in last Tuesday's emovie poster...and I promptly forgot about it...and was surprised to find out I WON it. (Why couldn't this have happened with the Power Ball? ARGH!) Yahoo.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/japanese_b2_valley_of_the_dolls_KM00691_L_zpsgwcqkot4.jpg)



SPECTRE (Subway):

Jeff/Erik 1925 introduced me to subway posters...and this SPECTYRE subway is better than the Spectre advance I shared this morning. Love my Bond flicks and have all of the posters now (except ONE combo re-issue...argh! But it WILL be mine this year...I hope.)

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/spectre%20subway_zpssw4xolx5.jpg)



PARTY AT KITTY AND STUD'S (Italian 2F):

This one is mine...Grrr. This is the ONE poster I bid on blindly and got caught up in during the auction. I just happened to see the outbid notice on it---lost my head (why? Did i need this?), went bananas trying to hang on to it for some inexplicable reason, and bid crazy high!  UGH!!!!  Oh well. Lesson learned...hopefully. But what a hoot to own the Italian poster for Sylvester Stallone ("The Italian Stallion") in his pre-fame blunder into porn! Ha!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/italian_1p_party_at_kitty_and_studs_SD04294_T_zpsvev1ik8d.jpg)



TALES FROM THE CRYPT (Italian 4F):

Plus side, i won this without watching the auction. COOL art. Down side,...it's a 4F. i don't like those 2 section posters. How do you even frame these without somehow attaching the two pieces together?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/italian_2p_tales_from_the_crypt_SD04318_L_zps4dtlkqg6.jpg)



KNIGHTRIDERS:

Wow!  I wanted this forever!  While not the best George Romero flick by far, i dig the poster. I have the dull style B poster (just a photo collage basically)...but have always wanted the illustrated style A. Yahoo. i jousted with a big bid, left it to fate...and it's mine!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Knightriders_zpslb5ekyen.jpg)



BARBARELLA:

This is an interesting win. In my pre-2016 bidding/sniping frenzy, i ended up losing a lot of really cool stuff on eMovie and getting a bunch of things i didn't really need (see previous posting). I did the same on HA....only the opposite happened. i lost out on EVERYTHING I bid on...except one thing...this awesome first release (I already have the re-release) BARBARELLA poster! It's doubly awesome as I was their under bidder for this same poster in their big November auction....and this one went for considerably less than the one in November!  Whoo hoo!!!!!

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a66/boinnng/Barbarella_zps6ckch1ul.jpg)



WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST:

OH MY STARS!!!!!  This poster, to me, is just GORGEOUS!!!!!  The story behind this one is also awesome. Usually, before an auction, I will look at everything being offered ahead of time, put some of it in my watch list and wait to bid until the last moment (if I'm actually watching the auction) or at the last possible moment (like just before leaving for work) if I will not be watching. This was a Thursday night auction on emovie. Occasionally there will be something I want that I know will be way, WAY out of my price range/league and I will never get it. On those occasions, instead of putting it in my watch list, i'll just bid some crazy number and forget about it---knowing I won't get it. I had several cool things in my watch list...some of them went for fairly reasonable or cheap prices....and were NOT mine because I simply forgot all about the auction! I had, however, bid some random price on this poster---forgot about it--and ended up winning it! What!?! NO WAY!  De
