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

Not that anyone has noticed my absence of late, but the Shock-O-Rama Poster Show has come to a close. What, you say? How can this be? I've come up against so much in the last few years. My neuro-muscular disease is incurable and unstoppable and degenerative. That's the main thing robbing me of my fun and my passions. Now that social security has officially deemed me "disabled" I can just sit back and collect the checks. Is that what you are thinking? Those monthly checks are, for some reason, almost nothing. Yep, somehow I am supposed to live on less than $1,000 a month. Crazy, huh? I've worked hard all my life, get a disease and am screwed the rest of my days.

But while I live out my bad TV Movie of the Week life (Tonight, a nice man gets a mysterious neuro-muscular disease and his life slowly starts falling apart [all before the first commercial] before dying in the final act!), it looks like I've gotta close down the show. It's hard for my physically ---and I just can't afford it.

But, even though it has been 4 months since I was last here---I do have some new posters to share one last time. Almost all of them are cheap crap. Many of them I'm sure you have seen before. But I do save my one final (?) prize for the end.  Shall we begin this last journey? Here we go...

WITCHCRAFT III (Video poster):
This was a cheap-o-rama purchase....just to buy something to fill up this post. The WITCHCRAFT films, as far as I know, all went directly to video. There are at least 16 movies in the series. I've never seen any of them. I've heard they are really bad...and I wish someone would release the full series...I'd actually watch it I think. (I like trash anyway...) I may actually have another WITCHCRAFT poster or two. I'm not sure... NOBODY else bid on this. Ha!
 
 
 
 


ROBOT WARS (Video poster):
Another cheapo... I've never heard of it. I needed to add something to this post and it looks quasi-interesting, so...
 
 
 
 

SCORCHY:
I have never seen this flick, but someone I used to know had three or four movie posters framed and up on his walls. One was PSYCHO. I can't remember the others at the moment. Poster junkie that I am wanted all of them. I tracked each of them down and got me a copy...with the exception of SCORCHY. As I said, I've never seen it. It looks fab in a cheesy, sleazy, exploitation kind of way. Now I finally have this poster as well. I'll never hang it though. Ha! I have to wonder why I bought it now.
 
 
 
 

FRIDAY THE 13TH (Remake):
I have this already, but it was inexpensive and why not? I wasn't a fan of the remake. For my money, it played just like another sequel instead of a retelling. The poster is good, though.
 
 
 
 

HALLOWEEN KILLS (Canadian):
I scored this from an eMovie auction not too long back. It was fairly inexpensive (compared to another US version I got a while back). The same auction had a US version and it went for more than this one did. Canadian. Big deal. I can't tell the difference, really. I'll tuck it away and resell it down the road a piece...
 
 
 
 

KING KONG (1952 rerelease promotional newspaper):
Here's a nifty promo item for the 1952 re-release of the original KING KONG. The little newspaper will make another nice display piece to add to my other assorted movie junk (3D glasses, Odorama cards, and other gimmicks). Whoo hoo. I dig it.
 
 
 
 

WEREWOLF OF LONDON (Egyptian re-release):
This is from an Egyptian re-release in the 2000s sometime. I didn't need it, but it is kind of nice having a poster for this old flick (that pre-dates THE WOLF MAN). I have a few other Egyptian re-release posters...DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN, etc. While not original releases (I'd never be able to afford them) and they do have Egyptian characters on them I'm not wild about...they still are theatrical posters---and not just prints.
 
 
 
 

MARY, MARY, BLOODY MARY:
I will admit that I'm not the biggest fan of this movie, BUT... I am a fan of the director, Juan Lopez Moctezuma. Although he only directed a handful of movies (and I admit that I have not seen them all), of the three I've seen (He only directed six.), two have been visually very interesting, with one (ALUCARDA) being a pretty remarkable film. Moctezuma was also a producer on Alejandro Jodorowsky's incredible EL TOPO. But this film, MARY, MARY, BLOODY MARY doesn't really work for me. It's the story of a modern artist woman who also may or may not be a sort of vampire. The lack of atmospheric sets (which contributed greatly to ALUCARDA and MANSION OF MADNESS) were sorely missed. Oh well. The poster IS fun.
 
 
 
 

OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME:
I dig the cheesy, ultra-low budget OLGA series---they are so bad. While my favorite movie in the series is OLGA'S DANCE HALL GIRLS (even though it has a fake Olga), this one has the best title--OLGA'S HOUSE OF SHAME! Ha! I love it.  I had a copy of this poster YEARS before tracking down the flick. As low-rent as the poster is---it probably cost much more than the actual film. I already have a copy or two--but I just couldn't resist another...
 
 
 
 

HOMICIDAL (Coward's Corner gimmick):
Oh my STARS!!!! Am I ever so stoked (Do people still say that?) about this! It's a bona fide William Castle gimmick. It's the Coward's Corner used for showings of HOMICIDAL. The movie came with a money back guarantee if you were too scared to see the rest of the movie. If you've ever seen a William Castle flick, you know how pedestrian they are. Too scared to watch the ending? No way. But, to ensure that the film made money and not many refunds were given, this gimmick, the Coward's Corner, was devised. Sure, you could get your money back, but, during the "Fright Break" (when the action of the film stops for 60 seconds), you had to walk down in front of the entire audience and go stand in the Coward's Corner (it has a little window in it as well--so you could be seen while in there.), while everyone in the theater pointed and laughed and knew who the wimp was. Needless to say, not many refunds were given.

I never thought I'd ever see one of these. I have never seen one for sale. I got this relatively cheaply as it is not complete. The panels on the sides are not included. That's okay. I'd never set up a Coward's Corner (It kind of resembled a voting booth---open at the back.) anyway.  (Plus, by being incomplete, it kept the price down and within my grasp!) Having jest this section (the front) is enough. But I also get 10 arrow cards (a sample of which is below) and the instruction kit. I sooooo want to get this puppy framed. It comes in two section, much like a 3 sheet. (The separation is just visible at the bed frame.)

For me, the lover of gimmicks and huge William Castle fan, this is a most incredible find.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

And that is about it for the Shock-O-Rama Poster Show. I do hope to pop up from time to time with Special Editions (i.e. framing stuff or putting posters out on display) and there may be a new acquisition post once in a blue moon. But the time of my monthly, weekly, or sometimes daily posts has come to an end. Thanks for joining me. I always appreciated your visits. Happy poster hunting. CHEERS!

I'm very sorry to learn of your condition Monster. I love seeing your crazy posters and reading your hilarious narratives.

Here's an idea. Show us some of your posters again we haven't seen for a while but with whole new descriptions. That won't dip into your modest income and we can continue to enjoy your wonderful presentations.

I agree w Mark.  This is one of the few threads I love visiting, even though I usually know nothing of the movies/posters on display.  Itís prob part of the appeal.  Always learning.

You could also sell some of your posters, send them to Bruce, I think you have plenty of extras, then buy new ones and keep the thread going.

And yes, we noticed your absence.  How could we not?

Awful to hear about your condition Monster. The joy your collection brings to you is obvious. Thierry's idea is wonderful! Maybe consider sending your posters to Bruce, and only with whatever you earn from there acquire what you fancy. A cyclical collection can be exciting!

Nothing but the best with whatever you decide.

Hi Thierry. Thank you for the note. I have sent a lot to Bruce. He probably still has a bunch of mine back-logged to sell I sent before I moved. But I still have a zillion more to wade through, pack up and send--I'm sure. If I get to them, that is.
We will see what happens down the road.
Thank you (and Holiday) for supplying this excellent site. I was ever so glad to have FINALLY stumbled on a place with people like me who LOVE movie posters!
CHEERS!

Ladeda--thank you also for the note. A cyclical collection does have a certain appeal to it. As I said to Thierry, we shall see... I am glad APF has members like you. Thank you again. CHEERS!

Sorry to hear of your health problems MAGG. Having no money for growing the collection must hurt but you have heaps and I like the sound of what others have suggested to sell some and get other ones. But if you are like me, its hard to part with any. I think I stopped collecting 6 years ago and haven't been able to part with any. Your collection thread has really kept the forum going with your passion for the posters and films. There is not much else going on. You really have a unique collection, which I see the huge effort in acquiring and so many ofus check it out because we like them. Maybe in continuing, as another idea, maybe start a thread of posters you see out there, but not buy, and talk about the poster and film as you've done with your purchased items. I don't see why we need to buy them to then be able to talk about them. We love seeing posters and seeing passion for posters and the stories behind them. I guess also you have moved house by now so that hard bit is hopefully out of the way for you. Take care and keep posting!  cheers

Just another back up of what everyone else has been saying, really sorry for the things you are going through, but thanks so much for always taking the time to share with us here.
It's always so much fun to look though this thread and see the obvious enjoyment you get from everything.
