“One of these eight people will turn into a werewolf. Can you guess who it is when we stop the film for the WEREWOLF BREAK? See it … solve it … but don’t tell !”
From 1974 a truly stunning movie poster from the werewolf horror genre with only the bloodied, dripping fangs and blazing eyes of the werewolf offset against the dark black background. An impressive and clever design usually seen on the UK quad double bill presentation with “Blood Sisters” this standalone British UK one sheet film poster for Amicus’ “The Beast Must Die” is a very exciting find. Most of the British one sheets for this film were printed in extremely low numbers for primary use outside of Britain. Totally unrestored and presented in near perfect rolled (as issued) condition this eye-catching lycanthrope horror poster displays and excellent effect and represents a fantastically gruesome item of extremely desirable and collectible horror movie memorabilia from Amicus Productions which at its peak rivalled the mighty Hammer.
Trivia: The two British horror studios – Hammer and Amicus – produced a number of scary movies involving ghosts, vampires and devils over a period of 20 years. Both of them, however, only ever produced one werewolf movie each. This was Amicus’ effort. Hammer’s was The Curse of the Werewolf (1961), an early starring vehicle for Oliver Reed.
