I just launched a new web-site
« on: May 15, 2018, 01:03:21 PM »
After literally years of stalling, I finally got www.TheHauntedCinema.com off the ground. The site is dedicated to showcasing horror/scifi/explotation movie posters from the 50's-70's, masks 9both vintage and modern), and news, reviews, and interviews.

The posters and masks are from my collection and I will be updating the galleries constantly (as my collection keeps growing). I will be having regular, weekly  posts in the news section from not only myself, but a few other writers that I have lined up.

The posts will be very eclectic. One week it could be a review of a bluray or movie, the next an interview with the folks that make our fandom what it is.

Check out the site and let me know what you think. It just went up a few days ago, and I still have a lot of posters to photgraph and insert, as well as original stills, autographs, and masks.

Like what I see so far.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?

Thanks everyone! I'm adding posters all the time. I still have quite a few here to add, and more coming. The blog is also going to be updated weekly.

I finally have all of my posters and masks on the site. I will be adding more as I acquire them.

The site looks great. I enjoyed perusing the poster gallery. Any story behind the theater that closed in 1979? Had they kept all their posters over the years?

Apparently, the cinema that closed was a 30 seat theater in the Appalachians. It was in a small, mountain town. Not sure if there were any other posters kept. Even in big city theaters, posters were often discarded after the show or sent back to the distributor.

I can't imagine a tiny theater caring much about storing lots of posters.

Okay, thanks for the info on the theater. I find I enjoy hearing about the history of a collectible as much as the item itself.

My son just wrote an interesting article on the use of CGI in horror. It's posted to the site. Check it out and let him know what you think.
