Part 2:


That's all of the posters I've gotten framed so far. I have not even started working my way through my tubes of rolled posters yet (and I have far more tubes of posters than I have boxes of folded ones). And, of course, nothing is on the walls yet. As you can see, I also have plenty of boxes of general crap to sort through post move. I've got my work cut out for me.

Thanks for visiting, though. I'll see you next time.

CHEERS!

Thatís awesome. Very nice!

OKIE! Hi there! Thanks for coming by. The move was such a disaster---so much was broken and ruined. UGH! I'm glad I removed the posters from the frames and took a bunch of them up here myself as a lot of my frames got damaged or ruined as well. (Sooooo glad the posters are safe!)  Stay tuned for more framed posters soon. CHEERS!

Welcome back to the Shock-O-Rama Poster Show! Today I have a mixed bag for you---something (well, a LOT of things...) old and something new. It may not be the most exciting batch I've ever presented---but it's not the worst. Take a look....if you DARE!

THE BIRDS (Promo mask):
Yes--ANOTHER one. This one was surprisingly the cheapest of the three I now own. Crazy. I didn't need it but I bid anyway (thinking I would NOT get it.) Of the previous two, one was just not up to the standards I had hoped it would be....so I have this to replace it. Hopefully it is in better shape.

MURDER ON THE CAMPUS:
This is a nothing poster. I had one of these before. When I was getting ready to move, I sent it (with a zillion other posters--thanks/sorry Bruce!) to eMovieposter.com to auction. I never dreamed they'd auction this title separately. But they did and it sold for a resounding $8...of which I got a staggering 25%. ($2) Ha! Oh well. But there was something inherently lame about this poster and I regretted selling it. This popped up on Movie Poster Exchange. I bid...and found out I won more than a week later. It's a lot rougher than the previous one. (My bad...I should have checked it out more thoroughly.) and now that it's "mine" again...yeah, I'm over it. To the bottom of the boxes it will go...

BEST IN SHOW:
Not a horror movie, I know. However, I just rewatched this with friends over the holidays. It is hilarious and a minor classic. It was also cheap. Why not?

THE HILLS HAVE EYES (Remake):
While going through my posters and starting to reframe them, I was having a text conversation with my friends Ashley and Sai. (They're married.) Ashley has seen my posters on the walls, but Sai has not. However, he has heard about them. He asked me if I had this poster or that poster. He asked about THE HILLS HAVE EYES. I had just come across my original 1977 poster and sent him a photo. He was pleased but kind of confused at the same time. Then I realized his age and realized he meant the remake. I asked and, yep...the remake. He didn't even know there was an earlier one from the 70s (or its sequel). I am sure I have one of these already, but if not I picked this up cheap. If/when they come visit, I can have this up in their room hanging. (The film was great, but the poster image leaves a lot to be desired.)

FUTUREWORLD:
I have a few others---but none of them are in the shape I'd like them to be. Fingers crossed this one is. We'll see...

METROPOLIS (2002 rerelease):
METROPOLIS is, without a doubt, a classic. Although there have been several rereleases of the film in my lifetime, I had never gotten a poster. This one came along. It was less than $30. Sold.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS (video):
Yes, this is just a video poster...smaller size than a one sheet. BUT--I have long wanted a CARNIVAL OF SOULS poster. The one sheets are just black and red. This video poster is the same art ---and in full color (unlike the movie itself). Sure, I'll still look for a one sheet. I am delighted, though, with this. (And, hello? It was crazy cheap...like $15 or so.)

TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE:
This isn't the most exciting poster ever---but how can you resist a tag line like "Thrill-crazed space kids blasting the flesh off humans"? Beaming in from 1959 is this drive in sci-fi classic. Sci-fi isn't usually my thing...but a lot of what I buy isn't either. I spent too much on this. I was kind of licking my wounds after losing a couple of other items I really wanted--and doing some rage (well...not exactly "rage", but terribly frustrated and upset) bidding, I guess you could call it. Oh well--I'm sure the consigner was pleased. (And apologies to whoever was trying to get it...)

SCREAM (2022 Advance):
With a few exceptions (James Bond, Halloween and the other big horror series, etc.), I rarely buy posters for sequels. SCREAM is a pretty big enough franchise that, I guess, I should have been buying posters of all along. I think I have SCREAM 1 and that's it. With the new version out now (which I am anxious to see!), while I'm not a fan of the final one sheet (with the extensive cast all featured), this advance poster really works for me. It's just a simple shot of Ghostface and a bloody knife, but it is suitably scary/creepy. EEEK! (I am NOT wild about the scan thing in the lower lefthand corner though...)

HALLOWEEN II:
I have a copy of this poster already. However, when I was packing to move, I tore a bit of the border. ARGH! It's not bad, but... I've been wanting to get another to replace it. This one came up. Although it apparently has some discoloration on the lower border, the poster is unfolded. What?!? I had no idea any HALLOWEEN II posters escaped being machine folded. So, even though I paid too much for it, I am happy to have this. Hooray!

And that is it for this time. I'll be posting an update on my framing progress very soon (like, probably tomorrow?). Come back if you can stomach it. Thanks for visiting. CHEERS!

UPDATE-A-GO-GO:
The framing frenzy has continued. Below is a whole new crop of newly framed posters I am anxious to get up on my walls. Take a peek if you like. There's no extra charge!

CRY OF THE WEREWOLF:
I only got this poster a few months ago--not long before my move. I had never seen this poster before or heard of this flick. I still have not seen the film, but am thrilled to have this poster and was frantic to find it when I started framing things. It's not the most exciting poster--but it's an older, obscure horror title and that makes it exciting to me.

MESSIAH OF EVIL:
What a delight to have this rare-ish poster for the obscure MESSIAH OF EVIL. From what I read, the producers of AMERICAN GRAFITTI were making the film and ran out of money--leaving it unfinished. Some enterprising person came along, bought the footage, and assembled what there was of it. The movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense--but it is fascinating to watch anyway. Marianna Hill is a totally underrated part of scream queen horror history. To me, she's like a B-movie Racquel Welch.

THE TERRORNAUTS:
I wasn't going to frame anything that wasn't a horror movie. This is clearly sci-fi, but it's simply a stunning poster. (It looks so much better in real life.) Wow! I'd have totally gone to see this back in the day based on the poster alone. (I've never seen this flick---it's apparently not even on disc in my region.)

MOTHRA:
I am still lacking (and will probably never have) an original GODZILLA poster. But this MOTHRA is stunning. I totally dig Mothra's big, creepy, angry-looking face peering over the title. Zowie!!!

TWO THOUSAND MANIACS:
I had previously framed BLOOD FEAST--the first "gore" movie. The rest of my HG Lewis collection I was going to leave unframed--as I have too many other posters that have never been displayed. However, while talking with some guy online about posters on Instagram, he convinced me to frame at least Lewis' 2nd and 3rd horror flick posters as well, to complete the "Blood Trilogy" and because both are so rare. Thank you Fangoria for, back in the day, introducing me to Lewis and his films!

COLOR ME BLOOD RED:
The third film in HG Lewis' unrelated "Blood Trilogy" (I guess his later horror films like THE WIZARD OF GORE or THE GORE-GORE GIRLS don't count?) was COLOR ME BLOOD RED. Although of the three movies, I like this one the least, I must say that I think the poster is much better than BLOOD FEAST or TWO THOUSAND MANIACS. This is the rarest of the three, I believe...and was the hardest for me to track down.

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE:
When I started my post-move framing project, I was not going to frame anything that had been framed before. However, you just can't ignore the classics. Besides, while I know I had this framed before, I don't think I ever had it hung on display. It's only a New Line re-release poster---but that's okay. It is the same art as the original Bryanston poster and, unless you are aware of that (Most people aren't.), you'd never know the difference. I am completely fine with this one.

THE CORPSE GRINDERS:
Another classic (albeit a low rent one) poster I couldn't resist giving a reframe, Bone-crushing terror! Spine-tingling chills! Craptastic movie. Ha!

ZOMBIE:
Yet another classic reframing. ZOMBIE!!!! "We are going to eat you!" Love it.

I finally got around to actually hanging some posters in the new place. There is a small hallway into my bedroom--the perfect place to slap up EIGHT one sheets! Ha!

The hall was too narrow to get the best photo of my efforts---but you get the gist of it.

And here is a final panorama shot that kind of captures it all. From left to right on the top: THE REDEEMER, EYEBALL, ORGY OF THE LIVING DEAD, INVASION OF THE BLOOD FARMERS. (Bottom): ZOMBIE, TOURIST TRAP, BASKET CASE, THE GATES OF HELL.

I added some of my framed collections to walls.

The top one is a presentation of some of the gimmicks I've collected, The top is an unused pair of ZOMBIE EYES glasses given out during the showing of PLAGUE OF THE ZOMBIES. Below that are two Witch Deflector coins (showing both front and back sides) used for the 1964 double bill of WITCHCRAFT and THE HORROR OF IT ALL. Next is a pair of hand-help 3D glasses for the nudie cutie flick PARADISO. I can't imagine having to hold a pair of glasses up for the entire run of a movie. It says to hold in your right hand, which I guess left the left hand free. Hmm. Below that is the Death Certificate given out with the double bill of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and BLOOD AND BLACK LACE. Finally there are the front and back of the 3D glasses handed out for THE MASK.

This is the display for my HALLOWEEN II remake prop book. I just reconfigured it---having the case be horizontal instead of vertical. I did not like the Rob Zombie HALLOWEEN films, with part II being the worst (imho). However, as a fan of the series in general, I am just pleased to have a part of its amazing history.

My BWANA DEVIL (the very FIRST full-length 3D movie) 3D glasses display is unchanged. I'm just glad to have it up again.

My 80s 3D glasses display is also back up. The only change is that I've swapped out the lesser/plain pair of COMIN' AT YA glasses for the FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3 3D glasses. I'm still searching for AMITYVILLE 3D glasses. Do they exist? There are other 80s 3D films (ROTTWEILER, THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE, HOT HEIR, 3D TALES OF TERROR, SILENT MADNESS, etc.) whose glasses I'd also like to find (if they exist.)

In the corner of my bedroom, near the bathroom door, I had room for three more posters. I chose to hang YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, which I had never had up before. To complement it, I added OLD DRACULA. Then, to complement both of those colorful posters, I added the first CREEPSHOW one sheet on the adjacent wall.

Finally, for now at least, here is a small display of gimmicks from William Castle. First it is one of the Ghost Viewers given out for the 13 GHOSTS "Illusion-O" gimmick. Below that is a Lucky Ghost Card for 13 GHOSTS. To the left is a ZOTZ coin from the movie of the same name. The space on the right is for some smaller, different 13 GHOSTS tickets I have somewhere.

That's it for now, but I am far from done.

Thanks for visiting.

Haha it reminds me of Mel's apartment a little.  Every inch of wall was covered.

My wife would crucify me if I put a single one of these posters up on my walls (She took issues with Forbidden Planet, too provocative for our kids.)

Thanks for sharing!

THIERRY: It is always a delight and a surprise to see you here. Mel sent me pictures of his place once. The double rows of posters was great inspiration. Ha! But so far, all of the pictures I've posted are all within the confines of my room. I have not moved out into the rest of the house (yet).
I understand your wife being concerned about the kids...but I LOVE looking at/seeing my posters. I sometimes catch myself just standing and staring at them. I'm glad to have them out again.
Thanks for the visit.

Sometimes I can't remember if I have a poster or not so I end up perusing my website.  My son collects Pokemon cards.  He probably has 1,000 of them.  In books.  He's obsessed.  He was looking at them the other day and I was like, My God, this kid has problems.  Then I caught myself doing the same thing on my website.  I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.  My Dad collected fine art and his house was full of it.  So I get it.  You look at them on your walls, I look at them on my website, my son looks at them in his books... same obsessive personalities hahah
