Hi QuadFather, I was fortunate once to hold and examine closely this original painting and it is everything you described and more!   Okie

Yep I believe Santi owns the original painting so you must have seen it in his flat. I'm fortunate to have a couple of these Thai HOWLING posters. Amazing design.

Hamburger Hill. Cool and larger sized poster. One sheet but original paintings were on two canvas, hence line in the middle.

Imaginative design by Tong Dee. I especially like the line of battle-ready soldiers that extends diagonally from the top of the poster to the bottom left. And the images of war in the bottom right are extremely well painted.

Nice going on getting the larger size poster, Marc!!!  Looks to be in very nice condition, too.  Okie

Tong Dee has a great and imaginative eye. Not even a question on his artistic talent and ability.

Hi Marc, Glad you are posting!  I hope you are safe in HK!  When Comedy was King is so surprising to me to have a Thai poster!  I say that because it's a genre that might be challenging to translate (not just language) for Thai audiences.  Then again, physical comedy, silent comedy, and classic comedy may do okay.  Cool find.. Okie

Hi All, Great to see some Thai posters featuring on here again. The TERMINATOR lobby cards I've never seen before, so must be rare.  WHEN COMEDY WAS KING was painted by Neet, who some of you will know for his amazing Thai posters for DAWN OF THE DEAD, PHANTASM and HALLOWEEN.  KING KONG LIVES  was painted by Tong Dee, who needs no introduction on here.  Keep the Thai posters coming! It's always a pleasure to see them.

Hi Okie, Yes all good here in HK thanks - we have been dealing with it for a couple of months already. Hope that everyone else is also staying safe.
Quadfather, yes I agree I have not seen too many Thai lobby cards. I have a couple others that I will post now. I will make an extra effort to keep on posting this week.

stay safe,
Marc

I can't remember if I've posted this one on here before - possibly not. It's such a beautiful poster - much better than the film itself. Art by the great Tong Dee. The film is BLOODSTONE - SUBSPECIES 2.

Here is the Thai poster for SNAKE WOMAN. I know nothing about this film. I believe it is the film on imdb listed as REN TOU SHE,  a 1983 Taiwan film. Can anyone advise? Regardless, the poster is a real tour de force. As ever, the Thai artist (anonymous in this case) really gives full value for money, packing details into every inch of his canvas.  Do click on the image and expand it to enjoy everything that is going on. My guess is that the artist is Poj (aka Supoj).

Awesome posters Quad. So gory and so many details. Posters are usually better than the movies!

Here's one I don't think has been posted before. THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES starring Vincent Price. Artwork by FourArt. Great colour and some good images of attacks by rat, bat and cockroach! I've never seen another one of these, so my copy may be the only one that has survived. I will wait for some on this site to prove me wrong! (I am always happy to be proved wrong.)

Just remembered there was a controversy on here some time ago about the use of watermarks.  What is the accepted position?

Here's another little masterpiece painted by Tong Dee.  Click on the image and zoom in to really appreciate the amount of detail and care that have gone into this. Every scale on the woman's body and every bat in the background is carefully painted. Can anyone translate the Thai title?
