Thai movie poster article
« on: June 28, 2015, 07:55:09 AM »
The current edition of the British horror movie magazine The Dark Side (issue #167) has the first in a two-part article on Thai horror film posters under the headline The World's Goriest Film Posters. It's illustrated with some great looking art including lurid posters for the likes of Evil Dead 2 (recently featured on the Film on Paper blog), Wolfen, Phantasm, and a bunch of others.

Thanks for the heads up on this.  Never heard of the magazine, but when I read in your post that it was a British I figured that collector Neil Pettigrew had something to do with the article.  Low and behold, it's about his collection.  Here is the bit about the article from there site:

World’s Goriest Posters

Decapitations, zombies biting into human flesh, people impaled on spikes, heads blown apart by gunfire and explicit throat-slittings… Lovely stuff for Neil Pettigrew’s bedroom wall!

It's pretty widely available in the UK -- many larger newsagents, such as the WH Smith chain, sell it. Or you can subscribe via their website. This is the URL: http://www.thedarksidemagazine.com/print-subscriptions/

It looks like you may be able to purchase one-off back issues, too, though it seems you need to register first, which I haven't done.

Hello All, This is Neil Pettigrew. If anyone wants to get hold of a copy of THE DARK SIDE magazine with my two-part article on Thai posters, here is the way to do it.
It appeared in issues #167 and #168.
If you are outside the UK, then:
Either send a cheque to Ghoulish Publishing for £8.50 (that's the price for ONE issue; £17.00 for both) at the editorial address of 29 Cheyham Way, South Cheam, Surrey SM2 7HX
Or
Pay by PayPal to Ghoulish at yannieoverton@gmail.com

These prices INCLUDE postage to USA, Canada and the rest of the world.

I will try to post a sample page from the article tomorrow.

Here is one of the posters which were omitted from my article in THE DARK SIDE due to space. It's the sensational Thai poster for THE ELEPHANT MAN painted by Kwow.

Not sure if Neil P is still active on the APF boards, but he has been busy producing a new article on Thai film posters for The Dark Side magazine - the current issue (#180) includes a piece he has written on erotic movie posters and has more amazing artwork.

In the UK it's available from newsstands. Here is a link to the mag's website, where it seems you can also order a copy: https://thedarksidemagazine.com/product/issue-180-enter-the-third-dimension/

To my shame, I haven't been active on this website for a while. But I am still collecting, selling and writing about Thai movie posters. They are my speciality. I will try to post some on here soon.  My latest article in THE DARK SIDE discusses some of the more explicit and erotic examples. Some of the best images could not be used in the magazine, on account of being just a little bit TOO explicit, so I may post them on here... if I am allowed.

I let the admins of this forum decide but considering we got already some hot topics, it should be fine.

But let me throw a wise request, can you just put the links to the images (without the image itself) :)
Looking for East African movie posters at fair price to complete my portfolio, if you have any in stock, let me know.  Thanks

Post away, Neil. Your images shouldnt be a problem here on the forum. And maybe post a link to your article, too. Im sure it makes for good and interesting reading.  thumbsup.gif
