Title: Let's see your Movie Posters
Post by: Creepy on May 13, 2017, 08:34:32 AM
Movie posters are probably my first collecting love, and my real passion. Like my masks, about 10 years ago I sold off my collection and recently started back into the hobby.

I also love seeing what other people have and would enjoy looking at what the folks here have.

Here are my recent additions;

This poster for Maniac is one of the best posters for 80's horror. Truly a cool piece.

Like so many vintage posters, the poster for Teh Werewolf vs. Vampire Woman is waaaay cooler than the film. The movie is a definite slow burn early 70's grindhouse pic, but it does have Paul NaschY!! Even thought they spelled his name wrong on the poster...he's listed as Paul Nash.

This poster is a recent silk screen work done by Rhys Cooper. It was limited to 150 and simply beautiful. I really love the new trend (started by Mondo) of artists reimagining movie posters from the past.

Werewolf Shadow is the original Spanish uncut version of the cut U.S. release retitled The Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman. It made Naschy an international star. He's credited as "Paul Nash" on your poster because the film was made as Americanized as possible for the U.S. release.

Check out the uncut version on the BCI DVD release of Werewolf Shadow. It's OOP and a little pricey, but worth it. I expected it to come out on Blu Ray with the many Naschy BDs being released this year but no word yet. It's his flagship film and my favorite. I'm a big Naschy fan.

I have a Synergy Entertainment version that appears to be burned from a crappy VHS. At parts the print is so dark that it is near unwatchable.

Get this, unless you want to be patient and wait for a Blu ray release.

The double feature is around the same price as just the BCI Werewolf Shadow, so you may as well get Curse Of The Devil thrown in. Uncut, good prints and transfers, and special features.

The BCIs have Naschy intros, and Werewolf Shadow includes the best copy of The Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman you're likely to find as a bonus. It's better than many of the PD set copies and boots floating around.

Here are a few posters that I cleaned up and color-corrected (okay I kicked the color WAY up) in Photoshop. On some of them the colors are totally modified, so they are basically one-of-a-kind. Then I had them professionally printed at a print show that I go to every year.

No, not a print shop. A print show is where manufacturers demonstrate large scale printers and plotters, and hand out free printed samples. If you come in with a flash drive, most of the time they will print stuff out for you.

Finally got this on the wall. This is a rare, U.S. 30x40 one sheet poster for Asylum

(https://imageshack.com/a/img923/3528/ZbgecN.jpg)

30x40 posters were used until about 1980. They were printed on card stock and shipped rolled to theaters. There were not as many of these as compared to a typical one sheet poster making them hard to find.

I found these weird window cards the other day and had to grab them. They were produced by Capital Film & Radio in Richmond. This was a small film distribution company back in the 60's & 70's that supplied films for theaters in rural areas of W.V. and the Carolinas. They also printed these "Coming Attraction" window cards to be displayed in metal frames at the theaters. These are roughly 5"x14" and really cool.

What? You mean there were no "Love Tramps" being seduced by creatures from the grave?

The thought is that this is a 2nd release poster issued maybe late 1971 early 1972 after the initial run of the film flopped. This poster tries to gin up interest by "sexing it up".

  Next week is the printshow, and I am busily cleaning up posters to get printed out; I thought I would give a bit of a sneak peek of some of the items I am working on. Basically, I try to find the cleanest, highest resolution copy of the poster I am interested in. I not only attempt to clean up any creases or imperfections in the artwork, I usually kick up the color saturation and contrast, as well. Because many of these poster’s color schemes are a bit limited, I will sometimes expand them a bit; or modify the color scheme, altogether. I realize that this may seem like heresy to some purists, but I am making these specifically for myself and not others. Most people aren’t really aware of how much of an overhaul these posters actually get, so I decided to include a side-by-side comparison of my work.

That's the best part. The Producers started with a title such as "Flesh Feast", and shopped it around. If Distributors showed interest, they generated an over the top poster (usually having nothing to do with the film), and when the Distributor bit...Bang! they made a movie.

The best example is The Beast with a Million Eyes, talk about over-promising and under-delivering.

Well, it was kind of a cheat. They didn't say that the beast, himself, had a million eyes (though the poster hinted at it) and you had to take their word for it that he was using the eyes of a half million people.  ;D

The hype is a huge part of the history and fabric of Horror/Monster movies and Exploitation films in general. I find the combination of overblown hype and cheezy delivery to be important to the core of the genre. It just adds to the charm of these films for most of us.

Sometimes the movie turned out to be of great quality and rivaled the spectacular poster, but usually it fell short to varying degrees. Most of us take the cheez with the high quality product and appreciate them all to a certain extent because of our love of the genre as a whole. In other words we cut "the stinkers" a lot of slack just because we love the genre of Monster Movies.

That's the reason I collect these poster gems. The art is usually great, and if the film is also good, it's like finding a toy in cracker jack.

Nope! I decided long ago, I will not share his story that he told me. It will be a secret.....FOREVER!!!!!!!! >:D

Now that we have established the secrecy between Mr. Mikels and...errr, Marsattacks666. I will now reveal the story and the mystery.

In 2006 there was a sort of Grindhouse revival( resurgence). Many theatres in Las Vegas were showing Grindhouse and Cult cinema films. Especially in the Dollar-type theatres. Which lead to very minimal Horror/Cult cinema conventions/expos. Which also lead to many apprearances from B-movie actors and directors.

Most of the apprearances were from Vegas residents. Liz Renay, Ray Dennis Steckler and Ted V. Mikels ( R.I.P., to all three).

So......One night during the showing of the Astro Zombies. Mr. Mikels and I had a conversation about the film and title. I asked him why there are two different titles to his film. One being the famliar title-The Astro Zombies. The other title called-The Space Zombies. I told him I had a VHS with the title The Space Zombies. He explained to me that the title was changed due to his partnership with a distributor of his film. Mr. Mikels never told me the name of the distributor. But, he did say that he was able to use his title The Astro Zombies for DVD distribution. Actually he did say the original title was to be The Space Zombies. But later changed to the now famous title. Mr. Mikels never went into detail about his involvement with Wayne Rogers.

Extremely nice Man, Mr. Ted V. Mikels.

The print show is coming up, here are a couple of posters I'm working on to get printed out:

A beautiful Ghost of Frankenstein

And the last film of The Creeper trilogy; I finally returned it to Universal!

A beautiful Ghost of Frankenstein

If you stretch the height of the credits they will look more like the original poster.

Granted, the stretched type does look better, but (unfortunately) the original poster is a funky size/aspect ratio. In order to get it to fit in a regular 24x36 frame I had to adjust a few things; and, in my opinion, the artwork is MUCH more important to stay true to, as compared to the typeface credits. You notice I still had to extend some of the top artwork to get it to fit correctly.

You should make it 22x28, like the original. Then it would fit perfectly.  :)

      I wanted to re-do this particular poster because none of the publicity material for this movie really capture any of the macabre elements of the film, in my opinion. This may be due, in part, to the fact that Chaney forbade Universal to use any publicity photos of him in his Phantom make-up; but, just as likely, Horror hadn’t really been established as a genre yet, and the publicity department didn’t know how to market it properly.
        In addition to cleaning up and modifying the artwork, I ended up adding the playbill information for its San Francisco world premiere, at the bottom; using actual wording and taglines from the film’s release.

Wow! That Rodan 1/2 sheet by itself is cooler than whole stacks of posters produced in the last forty years.

They lived for fear and therefore answered the call whenever needed.
