Just Because They're Beautiful

Posting for the sheer love of the material.

Hammer's These Are The Damned is a favorite of mine, and this art is superb.

Love the illustrated montage when it's textured like this.

The slime dripping off the young girl's arms is beyond beautiful.

And that doll is one I'm desperate to add to my collection.
  
 
This Japanese poster for The Shuttered Room evokes the film's air of mystery and brooding violence.

I wish film marketing would return to this style.

Today, the ultra-glossy treatment of poster imagery robs it of mystery.

And isn't mystery a major component of good cinema?

    Phantom, be honest, have you ever seen a more stunningly beautiful bird in your life than Carol Lynley when she was 18 ?, be honest.
