I bought the silly thing. I specifically asked the seller beforehand if it was holofoil so I sure hope when it arrives that it is holofoil. Fingers crossed.

Fingers have been long crossed, Jason.   ;D

So was this one a true holofoil? (here's hopin' and prayin')   prayer.gif

I checked HA for noteworthy "video" posters but pickings were slim:

Erstwhile NS4 "wild man" Ari recently told me that old video posters are selling well Down Under:

Most of these are video posters.  But, a few are something else.  Either way, they are all non-theatrical................

Thanks.  You know what you did.

Lovely selection, Schan -- I can see there's a fair few Boris posters I still need to track down! Never seen that Krull before either. Very nice.

I think video posters are underrated. There's some crackers out there with unique artwork for straight-to-video titles in the US I'd love to find (Death Spa or Headless Eyes anyone?!) but here are a few of the ones I have collected (from the US, UK and Japan):

Totally forgot about this thread.  Thanks for bringing it back to life, Schan.  Some really good stuff there.  I collect Struzan, and seeing your post last night reminded me of that Better Off Dead poster that I wanted years ago and completely forgot about.  So I bought it.  Thanks for making me spend money.

Boris is tough man..........I have been working on a complete theatrical catalog for a long time.  There are a couple of hard-to-find ones I have left.  There are a couple of easy ones too, but I am in no hurry to grab those until they are the last ones.  If you check out the artist subforum, there is a thread.......

This poster is vastly superior to the completely bland one sheet.

I have several dozen video posters somewhere. Mostly freebies I picked up from actual video stores back in the day. I tend to like the cheesier the better. My favorite was for Sorority Babes in the Slimball Bowl-O-Rama, which hung on my dorm wall and always made for an interesting conversation piece.

Interesting.  I just checked my website for other variations, but this is a new one entirely.  On the original, the head is from Carl Ramsey while the girl on the car is from Drew Struzan.

Here you have the OS, the OS Intl. and the OS Spanish language.

The Struzan work is classic.  This UK video version is so different, and perfect for a video store, imo.  It would be cool to find out who the artist is, and see their other work.  I'll have to research it someday.

Yeah the quad is cool, although I think it's more of a vertical format style.  Maybe I'm just too used to the standard USA formats.   8)  A hardcore Mad Max fan probably shelled out the (relatively) big bucks for it.

What I meant to say is that the price is really high for a poster in such a poor condition.  It belongs in the trash, imo.

A simple, quality backing and an hour or 2 of touch-ups and it would be in excellent condition.  Restored condition, of course; for most Mad Max fans, completists, etc. that would be OK.  It's from before the film was even released, and extremely scarce, pre-certification, for such a popular film, etc.

Yeah they're fun and many are exceedingly rare.  So many different styles the video posters have compared to the theater releases, and many for movies that weren't released in theaters.  A lot of times when I browse through some of them I see something I haven't seen that's cool, wacky, etc.

Yes, there are a few with even BETTER artwork than theatrical posters.

Point taken.  Yeah, you're right, I never think about linenbacking because it is something I dislike so much.  I would have not bought this poster because it's in terrible shape and I don't linenback.

Why do you say that it's before the film was even released?  Wasn't it released theatrically in Australia in '79, then in the UK and around the world and on home video a few years later?

You're right, I mistyped.  I was typing on my phone and was going to mention the pre-certification aka pre-cert dealio, but got off track and didn't notice it until after the editing time window closed.  I should've added a post to mention that.

Now that I'm on my home computer, I can edit the above, including where I misspelled "mistyped"  :P and add additional context. 

There's a pretty strong pre-cert fan base that collects the stuff.  The "video nasties" and their swag, that played a large role in the censorship, banning, etc. of some films in the UK, seem to command a relatively high price.  I was going to say since this Mad Max video poster is pre-cert, maybe some folks would put a premium on it for that reason.  I don't know enough about that genre to say if that's the case, but I'm sure that attribute is a bonus for some folks.
