“Kiss Your Nerves Good-Bye…The Sequel To The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror !”
Incredibly rare and much sought after original 1987 UK quad film poster for Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead sequel…“Evil Dead II” (Dead By Dawn). The sequel, made six years later and technically a retcon sequel, was allotted a significantly larger budget than the first and is more of a black comedy than the original. Lead actor Bruce Campbell is put through a continually escalating series of horrific encounters that allow him to show the full extent of his talent for slapstick comedy. Palace Pictures bought the rights to distribute the second film and once again commissioned Graham Humphreys to design the quad and video artwork for it after his iconic design for the first film had proved so successful. Released in cinemas and on VHS almost simultaneously the modest outlay for the rights to distribute the film proved to be an excellent deal as it went on to see great box-office takings and thousands of tapes sold, but also resulted in making these theatrical posters a real rarity. Totally unrestored this originally folded (as issued) British UK quad film poster is from first year of release, 1987 that displays & presents to excellent effect and is a real find in such high grade condition. A great looking piece of horror art that represents an exciting and scarce country unique British piece of original horror film movie memorabilia.
