Life in the Middle East used to be so much less complicated, at least it was in the movies of that era. This is an Australian daybill for a 1975 French-Belgian sexploitation film titled Couche-moi dans le sable et fais jaillir ton pétrole, which literally means “Lay me in the […]
Lorna the Exorcist is one of Jesus Franco’s better films, and the crab scene featured on this Belgian poster is one of its highlights. As usual in a Franco film, there’s plenty of nudity (especially of the Lina Romay variety), an excellent musical score, and naturally a cameo by the […]
I doubt Egypt had drive-ins, but if it did, this double-bill would be perfect. This is a combo poster for two made-in-the Phillipines horror flicks: Al Adamson’s Brain of Blood and Cirio Santiago’s The Blood Drinkers, listed here under its alternate title Vampire People. There is an identical U.S. poster […]
Finding treasures like this is my favorite part of collecting movie posters. Deadly Prey is a crazy, crappy American 80’s action flick which probably went straight-to-VHS in the U.S. during the big home-video boom, yet seems to have been released theatrically in some foreign markets such as Egypt. This poster […]
Beautiful French poster for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn, listed here under its less-mysterious French title Horror Kid.
1972 was a good year for the giallo, and this Italian-West German co-production is one of the best. Cosa avete fatto a Solange? (literally, ‘What Have You Done to Solange?”) proves there was more to this sub-genre than Argento, Martino, and Fulci. And this rare Israeli poster hints that the […]
“When Daddy’s Little Girl Became Everybody’s Little Girl” If that tagline alone doesn’t tip you off that this was made in the 70’s, then the enticing Lolita-esque artwork surely will! The movie on display here is a 1974 Swedish-Danish adult film titled Nøglehullet, which was released that same year in […]
Ridley Scott’s Alien took more than a few visual cues from this 1965 Italian horror/science-fiction hybrid directed by the innovative cinematographer Mario Bava.
Upskirt titillation on this North American poster for one of the numerous episodic German ‘report’ films from the 70’s, namely “Lehrmädchen-Report” (literally, ‘Apprentice Report’). If you’ve seen one, you’ve pretty much seen them all.
‘Delirium’ is right! Renato Polselli’s over-the-top giallo is heavy on the nudity and kinky sex, but light on coherence. Jayne Mansfield’s ex-husband and former Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay plays the sex-crazed doctor whose sado-masochistic fantasies may or may not be responsible for a series of pretty-girl murders. It’s posters like […]
I love the stunningly macabre artwork on this poster, though I know absolutely nothing about this Thai film other than the title is “Phi Ta Bo” which means “Hollow-Eyed Ghost”. Thai movie posters often feature various miniature scenes from the film scattered around a central image, which means they have […]
Toothless 70’s Drive-in hicksploitation with an alcoholic slant. Annie’s a beer-swigging, pickup-driving, Daisy Duke-rocking good ol’ gal hellbent on saving mama’s diner using her ample Southern ‘charms’.
Sleazy Crown International slasher on giant French poster.
This post is way overdue. At the end of May (like I said, ‘way overdue’), Poster Perversion was a guest of “Dni Fantastyki”, an annual fantasy fan convention in Wroclaw, Poland, for its first-ever poster exhibition. All in all, the geek quotient was very high, horror quotient quite low, and […]
