Yep, it's another list! I was perusing posters to use as possible promotional prizes in the future for The Tomb and I thought it necessary to throw up another "100" list. So many awesome images to choose from, but only 100 spots!

Basic rules apply: ONE (1) entry at a time per person. Additionally, if you nominate a poster, please don't try to skirt this rule by nominating another in the immediate slot following. I'm guilty of doing this myself. Please allow at least one other person to nominate their poster before you post another. For any posts that nominate multiple posters, only the first one will be counted. Also, to cut down on confusion, PLEASE BE SURE TO NUMBER YOUR SUGGESTION. I thought of denying any entry that wasn't numbered, but then I realized I would be going mad with the limited amount of power I've been given, thus making me no better than Kevin MacDonald in that "Kids in the Hall" skit... "Damn it KYGOTC, I told you to stay under your desk!" Hatred heh heh

Oh yeah, and if you want to nominate a different poster for a movie that's already been nominated, that's more than cool. THIS LIST ENCOMPASSES ALL MOVIES, NOT JUST B-MOVIES... whatever that term means anymore... Let the games begin!

No.1 - Brain Damage - Though I think the Germans lost something in the translation of the title, I've always enjoyed their poster for Brain Damage. The hero's exploding head isn't as impressive as the American version, but Aylmer's "brain sundae" makes up for it. Wish I could have found a larger image though...

5.  I always liked the Evil Dead Posters, so I'd lump them in the same category, but I always had a particular fondness for Army of Darkness [even if I have an Evil Dead 1 poster at home on the wall]



Ok so I know I might be breaking the rules, but I also liked the other version of the Army of Darkness poster as well.  I'm going to post a version for variety's sake and since they're all the same movie Anubis can stuff it up his vonmojo if he deems me out of line!   TeddyR

I hope to make up for it however by posting an alternative of the version I like.  I like the creative use of soup cans to reinforce Bruce's name in the Japanese psyche.

Crazy poster overload!:

The Night Porter poster always struck me as nostalgic. The intensity of Charlotte Rampling is not often met. However, the poster is probably not appropriate to post on here. So, I'll go with one of my other favs..

Number 9.  There have been some very good Godzilla posters, especially from the Heisei series.  Let me nominate this one from "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla" (1993):

13. this poster for  BLACK FRANKENSTIEN (aka BLACKENSTIEN)...for obvoious reasons. If they had shown a pic of the Blackenstien monster I don't think too many people, beyond geeks like us,would be too impressed. I just like the straight up, screaming,half nekid chick!
