Great poster/Theatrical one-sheet. I met Don Coscarelli in 2007 at a Fangoria Weekend of Horrors.
Super nice guy.

He really is. I met Don at Scarefest 2015 and got a Phantasm reprint poster signed by him and Reggie Bannister. As nice as that poster is, I only picked it because because A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester were also signing that weekend (though I ended up passing on them due to price). However, this Phantasm II poster was always my favorite from the series. I think seeing it on the VHS cover at the video store as a kid was my first awareness of these movies, so it's cool to finally own an original one-sheet.

Very cool.

I finally got back to the vendors show, after a couple years absence. This was my haul this time. I have already framed The Mummyís Tomb; I just need to find frames (and space) for the rest of them. As usual, most of these have been restored and touched up by me. Over the years, I have acquired large posters for nearly every Universal horror film, in this way. So, if you happen to be hosting a monster/horror convention and need some extensive decor, please remember to look me up.  :) :) :)

They look great! I don't see any fold lines, or anything!

Thank you. I cleaned up all the fold lines, wear & tear, as well as any imperfections. And (in most cases) kicked the color up. I spend quite a while restoring each one of these; but the final product is really worth it!

Kicked the color up? Are we talking about original posters?

   I start with the best hi-res digital image I can find and clean it up from there. In some cases the original appears to have faded very severely (see WW of London below). I kicked the color up on that quite a bit. Being a child of FMOF, I really like the bright, saturated look similar to Basil Gogos' artwork. Not everyone is a fan of this technique (Cortlandt Hull, included), but I made them specifically for me.

    It is not just the color & fold lines, BTW; I often overhaul the entire poster to suit my tastes; beveling the fonts, and adding halos and drop-shadows to make it more dramatic. On the House of Horrors, above, I replaced Rondo's painted face with a (scarier) photograph from a different poster. At first glance, the two This Island Earth posters, below, look pretty much the same; but upon closed inspection, you can see that I actually made dozens of changes to it. Some purists may not like it; but, as I said, I am making these strictly for myself.

What was it, exactly, that you bought at the vender's show?

The vendor's show was not monster related, but actually for GIS/GPS equipment; which included large scale printer/plotter demos. Since we had purchased from HP a few years back, they were nice enough to print out some movie poster artwork I had cleaned up and brought in on a thumb drive. To clarify: they provide the equipment, I provide the art. The posters that I have shown are (at this point) Not Available in Stores. :)

Now I get it. You took an image file and ran it through PS and then got somebody to print out some large posters for you.

I buy my posters from http://www.morbidmonster.com/  They do all the retouching that needs to be done and print then to original size (one sheets and smaller posters).
