One of the cinemas all time classic movies…Ridley Scott’s Oscar winning deep space horror “Alien”. Any paper for this film is extremely sought after with the alien ‘egg’ style, designed by creative arts agency Bemis Balkind the most recognisable. On halloween 2003 “Alien” was re-released in a remastered Director’s Cut format. Sensibly the Studio went with the original 1979 poster design and updated it by printing a small number of posters on heavy stock paper with a silver background and luminous green plastic panel (on reverse) offsetting a die-cut ‘bleeding’ edge to represent the Alien blood. The UK quad poster offered here is from this 2003 release and it displays and presents to excellent effect being originally rolled (as issued). There is no fading with deep blacks/greens & stand out silver colour tone…Hugely collectable, a desirable piece of original film movie memorabilia from a truly influential movie that defined the face of modern sci-fi horror.
Trivia: Dan O’Bannon‘s original draft title was “Star Beast”, but he was never happy with this. It was only after re-reading his script that he noted how many times the word “alien” appeared, and realized that it was a perfect title. It works as a noun and an adjective, and it had never been used before.…more detail
Zombies, Nazis, stranded holiday makers and Peter Cushing…if this sounds like your kind of fun then you probably are a fan of Ken Wiederhorn’s enjoyable horror romp “Almost Human” (AKA Shock Waves). Nostalgic 70’s hokum that is complemented by a first rate film poster as the SS ‘Death Corps’ take centre stage in a great example of horror artwork…good use of bold day-glo colours in the title and striking well balanced design. Certainly a rare find and even more so in such excellent high grade condition. Originally rolled (as issued) this 1977 UK quad film poster is offered in superb unrestored condition and presents and displays to excellent effect and represents a rare piece of hugely collectable original 70’s horror movie memorabilia.
“Stay on the road…Keep clear of the moors…Beware the moon, lads.”
A truly influential genre great…John Landis’ tongue in cheek werewolf horror romp “An American Werewolf in London”. This original 1981 UK quad film poster is stunning; great imagery as we see David before (very nude) and after (the best cinematic werewolf transformation ?) in incredible snarling wolf man mode. Very in your face and not at all as understated and restrained as the US one sheet version. With unique UK design this is an extremely desirable, very rare poster from a “golden age” of physical movie special effects. In excellent original, unrestored condition this folded (as issued) example displays to superb effect and represents a really nice item of original horror movie memorabilia from a classic of the genre.…“I vote we go back to the Slaughtered Lamb”
Trivia: Rick Baker claimed to have been disappointed by the amount of time spent shooting the face changing shot for the transformation after having spent months working on the mechanism. John Landis only required one take lasting about seven seconds. Baker felt he had wasted his time until seeing the film with an audience that applauded during that one seven second shot.…more detail
“Trapped in time. Surrounded by evil. Low on gas”
Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness: Evil Dead 3” is not as rooted in the horror genre as its predecessors – although it has its horrific elements, it seems to be first and foremost a dark fantasy comedy – with lots of one-liners and slapstick and gore. It’s kind of a delirious combination of horror, comedy, fantasy, action, and adventure, but it’s definitely the horror element that comes across in this 2017 alternative movie poster from Graham Humphreys. The medieval dead and undead never looked scarier and are out in full force as the hero from the previous two instalments – Ash (Bruce Campbell) cuts a worried looking figure. Originally rolled (as issued) the example offered here is truly exceptional; This limited edition it has been signed by Humphreys and hand-numbered #48/100 and displays and presents to excellent effect with amazing imagery and deep, rich colours. The horror ‘fan-boy’ love for Sam Raimi & Bruce Campbell is well deserved with related memorabilia much sought after, making this a hugely collectable piece.
Trivia: Released in Japan as “Captain Supermarket”.…more detail
A beautiful British Quad for Terrence Malick’s cinematic debut “Badlands” starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as the young couple on a killing spree across the ‘badlands of Montana’. This 2008 BFI (British Film Institute) re-release offering sees the original 1973 British artwork adapted to a full bleed image with no white border. It really works, resulting in a particularly powerful silhouette imagery. Presented unrestored, in originally rolled (as issued) condition, this scarce British poster rarely comes to market and represents a fine piece of cinematic memorabilia for a cult classic movie.…more detail
“Who seduces an angel? Who strips in space? Who conveys love by hand? Who gives up the pill? Who takes sex to outer space? Who’s the girl of the 21st century? Who nearly dies of pleasure?”
In arguably the most famous role of her career, Jane Fonda stars as “Barbarella” in Roger Vadim’s, campy, sci-fi fantasy. Based on the hugely popular French comic strip by Jean-Claude Forest the film is considered one of the 1960s quintessential cult movies. With its stylish and pop art inspired colourful design by Renato Fratini and Robin Ray the British Quad features country unique artwork not seen on any other paper for the title. Originally folded (as issued) this beautiful unrestored example displays to excellent effect with vibrant, unfaded colours and bright white background and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection or as a one-off display piece. One of the best condition examples of this poster I have seen, that represents a highly collectable piece of cinematic memorabilia for a much admired sci-fi classic.
Trivia: Barbarella was the first science fiction hero from comics to be adapted into a feature film, as opposed to a serial. Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, her male predecessors, had only appeared in serials.
