“A Step Beyond Science Fiction…”
A great piece of artwork by Chris Achilleos on this 1981 UK quad film poster for the release of “Heavy Metal“, an animated film based on stories from the magazine of the same name, which was known for its blend of science fiction, fantasy and sexual erotica. Developed over a period of three years, the film is an anthology of tales connected by a framing story, with each one being based on a segment from the magazine or created specifically for the film. Like its source material it contains plenty of graphic violence and sexual imagery, although the film is somewhat softer in comparison to the tales seen in print. Offered here is an original UK quad movie poster from the first year of release 1981 with some stunning art by the very talented Chris Achilleos. A visual feast of a poster with beautiful design and artwork, bright bold colours and stunning all-action fantasy imagery; a fantastic looking poster. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored film poster presents to excellent effect and is a fine example of rare and collectable original movie memorabilia for this much admired cult film.
