awesome movie poster friday- the RANDOM edition!

Gotta love the American Werewolf in London as wacky sex comedy poster.

Also, it seems Croaked took a bit of influence from those Humanoids From the Deep, no? Of course, the execution is light years apart...

Hurlements = The Howling
Survivance = Just Before Dawn
Fridays = Awesome

Nice picks this week, this is my favorite so far. The cheerleader camp poster is in my top 50 favorite posters and that 2nd American Werewolf poster has got style to burn. I also need to get around to watching PIN, its on fango's top 100 most underrated horrors.

Fuga da New York!

I'm surprised they gave Kurt Russell such a low profile in the Japanese The Thing poster & made it so . . . um . . . dare I say it . . . vaginNO, NO, I've got it . . . made it SO Georgia O'Keefe!
FFFFEEEWWW!

Anyways, I can totally see the "raincoat crowd" going into a theater to see American Werewolf & then watching a scary movie, disheartened, with pockets of unused issues.

Cheerleader Camp = awesomeness!

I was always hypnotized by the Cheerleader Camp artwork when I was little. I think it was the bottom-cleavage. If I'd grown up to be straight I fear for the fetishes that poster may have instilled in me.

Love the Mucha-inspired Vamp one.

And the manga style on the "American Werewolf in London" one. Beats the chibi-Krueger one.

ARBOGAST said...

Hurlements sound like what you pop in your mouth after you throw up.

Micah Zurer said...

That Escape From NY Poster is in the Escape From New York Pizza downtown in San Francisco. So much better than the actual pizza.

Is cheerleader camp any good? Always wanted to see it..

Fletch said...

I read Survivance as Survivadance. That sounds like a lot more fun, imo.

ARBOGAST said...

Survivadance could be the sequel to Murderrock.

Bonnie said...

What in the holy hell is with that first American Werewolf In London poster?!?!

I like the Humanoids From The Deep and Just Before Dawn posters.

Pierce said...

Ok so that first American Werewolf in London poster has just become my favorite movie poster Ever!

I have the same question as Micah, is Cheerleader Camp worth a watch? I've never seen.

Wait, where did my comment go?! Now I've forgotten what I said. I know I forgot to mention that "Fuga da New York" is what Italian guys in Baltimore say when the Yankees are in town. (Thanks, I'll be here all week. Try the veal. Don't forget to tip your Ponder.)

Oh yeah! I originally said something like "If Satan's Skin and La vampire nue aren't the perfect '70s Euro-nekkid-horror titles, I don't know what are."

Also, Stacie = Awesome.

Sarah said...

I love Pin! Canadian classic.

Adam said...

Is it just me, or does that second Werewolf poster actually look like a cat...?

Fox said...

Wow. This might be my fave AWESOME POSTER FRIDAY yet!

Great finds, Stacie.

I don't know what *Pin* is, but MAN, am I gonna go look for that mutha after I post this. Awesome.

*The Horror of Dracula* one is beautiful, but I gotta say that the Pumpkinhead one is my #1 of the lot. Never seen that one before. GREAT!

Bloody Mary said...

This is an awful lot of awesomeness for just one Friday.

My faves are Pumpkinhead (I have a tender spot for him), Satan's Skin, La Vampire Nue, and Monster.

The Cheerleader Camp poster reminds me of a nightmare I had as a pre-teen about Scott Baio. The only time I ever asked my parents if I could sleep out the rest of the night in their room.

Dan Coyle said...

Oh wow, I've actually SEEN Cheerleader Camp... it's a riot. Not GOOD, but... the final reveal...

Evol Kween said...

OMG I want through this phase where I was totally obsessed with Pin. Gotta find me a copy of that.

Piper said...

That American Werewolf poster is so crazy.

And I want that Escape From New York poster.

James Laidler said...

It seems really odd that you'd post the Cheeleader Camp poster when fashion magazines are slowly started to incorporate the almighty under-boob back into their pages. Coincidence? Or are you pro-underboob?

Corey said...

cheerleader camp -- far better poster than movie.

pin -- my friends and i always knew this as pin: a plastic nightmare. which, in my estimation, increases the coolness of the title by about 104%.

Brittany said...

Just for the record, Survivance is quite the shit, the Asian poster under Monster reminds me of something out of MAD Magazine, and Cheerleader Camp could have totally won first place as one of R.L. Stein's Goosebumps cover arts.

=D
