Nothing ever stripped your nerves screamingly raw like...

I'm leaving for the SIGGRAPH conference in San Diego (along with some little wheeled friends) so there won't be any updates for a week or so. Celebrating my imminent trip to the States, here is a random grab-bag of North American posters! Just to make it more fun none of the films are actually from the US - but the tag lines certainly are! There's Jess Franco's insane Miss Muerte; Mario Bava's creepy Operazione Paura; the classic British witchcraft shocker Night of the Eagle (albeit written by Yanks Chuck Beaumont and Fritz Leiber); one of the best double bills ever - a Japanese two-faced manster in Kyofu coupled with George Franju's no-faced woman in Les Yeux Sans Visage; an equally brilliant double bill of nekkid French vampires from Jean Rollin; and finally the Japanese pop-art masterpiece Ore ni sawaru to abunaize. Why that's a whole foreign film festival right there!






See you later for more crazy movie paper! In fact you might be interested to know I'm awaiting a shitload of new Italian posters - most of which have the words Svezia or Svedese in the title...

I've always covetted that Diabolical Dr Z half sheet! Black Tight Killers is sublime as well. Have fun in America!
