Profondo Paura

Continuing the odyssey of the Italian manifesto, here are three classic horror and sci-fi movies featuring superb artwork - sometimes derivative of, but always superior to other countries' posters! First, a scene from the groundbreaking UK shocker Horrors of the Black Museum, where an unfortunate lady has just opened a grisly gift from Michael Gough's maniac! Then the cleavage-in-space epic The Green Slime, by one of Japan's most celebrated directors, Kinji Fukasaku, better known for the Pearl Harbour-based Tora! Tora! Tora! and survival horror masterpiece Battle Royal. And finally, Susan Denberg strikes a pose in Frankenstein Created Woman, one of Peter Cushing's more outlandish portraits of the mad doctor.

Great Green Slime poster. Too bad the movie is not that exciting.
