The Shining



“A masterpiece of modern horror”

With Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” sweeping all before it at the American box-office anticipation for the British release was at an all-time high so the Studios marketing people set about promoting the imminent UK release initially producing this Advance “Weekend Mirror” Teaser UK quad film poster. A very clever design that has been directly ‘lifted’ from the Daily Mirror tabloid newspaper who ran a double paged spread on “The terror that is sweeping through America”. This unusual poster is a very rare find and an inventive and striking marketing piece for probably the most important and influential horror films ever made. The “Here’s Johnny !” imagery is particularly striking in stark black & white of this original 1980 UK Quad movie poster.  Totally original and unrestored and presented in very good folded (as issued) condition it displays and presents to excellent effect. A genuinely scarce and hard to find example of British horror film cinema memorabilia…“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…”
