Thanks for the reply, glad you like them and original quads are just so cool aren't they? Let's face it, a lot of the time the artwork on the quad is better than the film it promotes. I also really like the landscape format as opposed to the US which uses the portrait style so we don't just get exactly the same artwork as it has to reworked or redone completely for the format.

Yeah, the Turkey Shoot one is awesome (no film for CHICKENS!) and I have never seen that artwork used anywhere else to advertise or promote the film, it was certainly never used again here in the UK.

Feel free to post some photo's of yours if you like, I always like to see more, especially the horror quads.

Here's a quick one, an original UK quad for The Boogens. Oddly enough, while The Boogens was released theatrically here in the UK (as this original UK quad proves) it was never released after on any home video format here, not even VHS. Like The Awakening I am not convinced The Boogens deserves an 'X' certificate...

Default 80's monsters movies.

Here are a couple of UK quads for two monster/creature feature horror films from 1984.

Argh! A horribly blurred and glared photo of an original UK quad for C.H.U.D., which we all know stands for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers. The distributors obviously didn't want to give away what the C.H.U.D creatures looked like on this quad. The New York skyline doesn't match the foreground image of the C.H.U.D. lifting the sewer cover off in terms of perspective, colour and lighting but it's still a nice enough quad. C.H.U.D. was quickly released on rental VHS here in the UK after it's theatrical run in the mid 80's but has since totally disappeared despite being pretty good, it has never been available to buy on VHS or got a DVD release of any kind either.

C.H.U.D..jpg

A much better photo of an original UK quad for Ghoulies, a film which I have to admit I personally think is absolutely awful. This is a very misleading quad, the Ghoulie creatures in the film look nothing like the one on the quad, they don't wear blue T-shirts or pink braces and as far as I remember there are no toilets in the film either. I find the quad a bit unappealing actually, the obviously rubber Ghoulie doesn't look that good and the attempt at toilet humour is crude too. It's still an amusing quad though, I believe this image was used all over the world as poster and VHS artwork.

Default Nightwing.

Just a quick post to show you what arrived from eBay this morning.

An original quad for the not particularly great 1979 killer Bat horror flick Nightwing, the artwork used on this quad is completely different to the original US one sheet and I actually really like it, sure it's a bit dark with too much black used but for some reason I really like it. The screaming woman surrounded by the flying Bats and the bright yellow title make a great looking quad. Simple yet very effective in my opinion. This quad, which is in mint condition with no tears or creasing or pin holes in the corners, only cost 12 too, including P+P. Bargain.

Default Cool double bills.

Here are a couple of really cool quads for some entertaining sci-fi action adventure double bills.

Here a quad with awesome artwork for Damnation Alley and Thunder and Lightning, I actually haven't seen either of these films although I have wanted to see Damnation Alley for a while. The really bad reviews have put me off a bit though. Released by 20th Century Fox I suspect this double feature had a very wide theatrical release here in the UK which probably explains why so many of these quads turn up, I got this one for a tenner.

Damnation Alley Thunder and Lightning.jpg

More awesome artwork, while I have never seen Carquake but I have seen The Giant Spider Invasion. CREEPING!... CRAWLING!... CRUSHING! The Spectacular All-Action Giant Programme! Ha! Don't undersell it boy's and use as many exclamation marks as you can. Looking at this quad now in 2014 I still can't believe some of the films that got full theatrical releases here in the UK, I mean The Giant Spider Invasion? Now, unless your film is a major Hollywood film your not getting anywhere near a UK cinema.

Yeah, I was too young to see any of these at the cinema when they were originally released, I was still a baby when the old 'A', 'AA' and 'X' certificates were in use. The situation is so different now, the style of modern quads and only Hollywood blockbusters getting any sort of a look in at most UK cinemas, these awesome quads are a product of a real bygone era when you think about it.

I bet you never saw this one at your local cinema!

Fantastic artwork for what were probably awful low budget softcore sex crap. Considering how strict the BBFC were back then I imagine the artwork on the quad was more explicit than the content of the actual films. I don't really like these smutty films or quads and this is the only quad promoting sex films I own because of the cool artwork. I am not sure if this quad would be legal in the UK now, the Sex Odyssey section is fine but it might be argued that the Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl artwork promotes or promises potential underage sex which is a massive no-no in sex films in the UK now. It certainly cuts close to the bone, as it were.

Sex Odyssey Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl.jpg

Here's a slightly closer look at the awesome Sex Odyssey artwork, when I look at it I can't help but feel the tagline should have been 'Things to Cum' rather than 'Things to Come'! I won't post any more photo's of Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl, you can see it perfectly in the previous picture anyway.

Default Some BIN's from eBay!

I'm back. Just another quick note about the Sex Odyssey and Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl quad above, looking at it I notice that the quad has no credits for the films themselves or a distributor logo, it's just literally the artwork, the title and the 'X' certificates.

Anyway, these arrived today after I bought them using Buy it Now on eBay from the same seller. Three very different styles of quads actually.

I actually really like Saturn 3 although I know it gets a lot of stick and bad reviews, I don't know why I just like it. Nicely drawn artwork here on the Hector robot, not the best picture.

Saturn 3.jpg

While quads with intricate and extravagant artwork like the Saturn 3 one are great sometimes a more simple approach can work just as well. Here is the original UK quad for The Rift with simple yet effective artwork, mostly dark black with a slither of blue sea between a rock crevice and a submarine shining a light on something with tentacles... Simple yet effective this will go well with my Deep Star Six quad of which there is a photo a few post's back.

The Rift.jpg

Not the best photo, not sure why these three came out so bad and slightly blurred. Not really sure why I bought this one, it was cheap and it's got a nice photo of Kathleen Turner in a mini-skirt and high heels so that was good enough for me. V.I. Warshawski was released in the UK by Warner Bros. and this quad is notable for it's paper, it's a really thick, shiny and glossy quad that feels and looks really good in reality.

Default Dracula and a Werewolf.

Here are a couple more of my quads.

Here is a great looking UK double bill quad for An American Werewolf in London and Love at First Bite. Not a bad double bill but I am not sure I would stick around for Love at First Bite after An American Werewolf in London had finished. This is a great quad although I do wish the shot of the Werewolf was in colour rather than black and white, I still really like this quad though.

An American Werewolf in London Love at First Bite.jpg

Here is the single quad for Love at First Bite which I have had for years, although the top Bat from the left side of the artwork is missing and the double bill quad is bright orange while the single is dark red it is exactly the same on both quads. There's a plug for the original soundtrack (on vinyl record no less!) in the bottom left hand corner. I don't have the original single quad for An American Werewolf in London as it fetches silly money on eBay, undoubtedly because of the film rather than the lacklustre quad.

Love at First Bite.jpg

I think you can just about read the text here at the very bottom of the quad, the text clearly states these UK quads are not sold but loaned to the cinema by the National Screen Service Ltd and should be returned to them after the film it has advertised finished it's run. I suppose they didn't care too much as so many managed to get out into the 'wild' as it were and into public hands. Legally speaking I suppose no UK quads should be held in private hands at all, luckily no-one seems to care.

Love at First Bite screen text.jpg

You can't see this too well because of the glare but what the hell is 'Meco's Impressions of An American Werewolf in London Marketed by Polygram Records' supposed to be?

Default Some doubles.

OK, so this thread has just inched past the 700 views mark, to celebrate here are a few more from my collection.

Here is a cool double bill quad for Ruby and Satan's Slave, I have never seen Ruby but I have seen Satan's Slave and I quite liked it. Great artwork for Satan's Slave that only ever went out in the UK in a double bill with another film (I previously posted a picture of a quad with Satan's Slave paired up with Squirm) and was never released as a stand alone feature.

Ruby Satan's Slave.jpg

More awesome artwork for The Devil's Rain and Vampyres, I have seen both of these. The Devil's Rain is enjoyable nonsense with an amusing cast although I am not sure it has 'The Most Incredible Ending Ever!' like the quad suggests while Vampyres is a rather dull lesbian Vampire horror film that look's and sounds better than it is.

The Devil's Rain Vampyres.jpg

Here is a nice quad from 1974 for the bizarre double bill of The Thing with Two Heads starring Ray Milland in a career low and something called Bunny O'Hare which I have never even heard of. Even though it was released theatrically The Thing with Two Heads was never released on any home video format here in the UK.

The Thing with Two Heads Bunny O'Hare.jpg

Here is a closer look at the artwork for The Thing with Two Heads. It makes me want to see it, two headed people, two headed Gorilla's, car and bike chases, explosions and a helicopter! Will the film live up to this artwork?

Default More smut.

Remember when I said my Sex Odyssey/Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl was my only quad advertising sex films? Well I lied! Looking through some of my quads I found this....

Ha ha, what a double bill! Further Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl the sequel to Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl which gets bumped to main feature in this double bill of smut! I have no idea what these films are although checking She's too Hot to Handle on the IMDb it seems like it is an action adventure film from 1977 about an international hit-woman and actually sounds like a proper film. I wonder what sort of person actually went to the cinema to see double bill's like these? I would have been scared sitting in the cinema I think...

Further Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl She's too Hot to Handle.jpg

Here is a closer look at the artwork for Further Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl, I have no idea when I bought these two quads but I would almost certainly have bought one because I already had the other and thought two Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl/Further Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl quads would be cool to own. Again note apart from the title and the 'X' certificates there are no credits for the films or indication of any film distributor.

Yes, it's a really nice quad with the cool black and white artwork filling the landscape style quad perfectly with the creepy wheelchair and the elongated shadow with the title 'The Changeling' and the cool 'X' certificate. I have never actually seen The Changeling but I have heard lots of good things about it and have always wanted to, while it has been released on VHS and DVD here in the UK I have never managed to get hold of a copy and watch it.

Meanwhile here is a very rare quad from my collection for the obscure 1976 lurid and sleazy sounding French horror film Seven Women for Satan which I have never seen coupled up with something called Virgin Doll which I haven't seen either but is a retitle of the even more obscure 1972 film Toys are not for Children. Really good but sleazy artwork here as the woman in this artwork seems have forgotten to put her clothes on... I am not sure how they got away with it back then! Can you imagine all the complaint's from the moralist's now if they saw this hanging outside their local cinema?!

Seven Women for Satan Virgin Doll.jpg

'The Psycho-Shock Story of a Passionate Plaything...' screams the tagline. Obviously the marketing guy's wanted to keep this quad low-key and subtle. Not.

Virgin Doll.jpg

'One by One they were Caught in a Web of Fear'! And here is the original UK pressbook issued by International Film Distributors Ltd and advertised as 'Programme Information' that was distributed to cinemas and gave advice on how to market the film properly. Anyone want to phone that number at the bottom of the page and see who answers now? Just another piece of curious sleazy film history representing a bygone era. I don't have many of these pressbooks but I do have one's for Flesh for Frankenstein and Vault of Horror as well.

Wow, that was quick! I only posted on Saturday just gone that this thread has just about inched past the 700 mark and just four day's later it's gone the 800 mark! I am sure it took ages to go from 500 to 700...

An awesome quad for the double bill of The Human Factor starring George Kennedy and John Mills, I must admit I have not seen The Human Factor but it does look like a really good revenge action thriller. I have no idea what The Swordsman is.

The Human Factor The Swordsman.jpg

At better look at the artwork for The Human Factor, again why lose all the colour? Why make it black and white apart from the red numbers and title? Still a great quad though.

The Human Factor.jpg

A double bill from 1971, the British thriller Blind Terror and the American drama Doctors' Wives. The tagline 'Doctors' Wives have everything Except Husbands' doesn't even make any sense while the tagline for Blind Terror is just one of the most forgettable you will ever read.

Blind Terror Doctors' Wives.jpg

Default A couple more.

OK, here are a couple more I have and these quads are all about the title which more or less comprise the whole quad for both.

I have never seen Manitou but have heard of it, the title dominates this artwork with just some flames, a pair of hands, the tagline and the credits besides. This quad doesn't really tell you anything about the film, it's OK but far from my favourite. This is in mint condition and it was pretty cheap though at under a tenner and it still looks nice enough.

The Manitou.jpg

This uninspiring quad for the horror film Wolfen goes even further as the entire quad is simply the film title on a black background with a prominent 'X' certificate and a 'Warning' stating 'This Film Contains Explicit Scenes of a Most Terrifying Nature' to get people interested, I have seen Wolfen but can't remember a think about it other than I think someone gtets decapitated at the start. This photo isn't the best but beyond the titles and some text there really is nothing else to see anyway so it doesn't matter that much. Again to emphasise the adult nature of the film the blurred red text under the credits that you can't quite see reads 'This Film is 'X' Rated. No One Under 18 Admitted'.

Default Two more.

Do you like Jamie Lee Curtis? Do you like early 80's slasher films? Yes? You might like these then.

Here we have the original UK quad for possibly the most boring 80's slasher ever made, Prom Night. I watched Prom Night in HD last weekend which inspired me to look at my old quad and absolutely nothing happens in the first hour, sure things pick up a little for the final third but what a chore to get there. It's no surprise that Jamie Lee Curtis thinks this is terrible, it is. Nice quad though even if the disembodied hand looks weird. Since Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't a star at this point notice that the quad doesn't mention her name at all and in fact gets second billing in the credits behind Leslie Nielsen.

Prom Night.jpg

Next we have the original UK quad for the superior Terror Train which gets The Fury as a co-feature. I absolutely love the tagline here 'Don't Waste Money on a Return Fare. You Won't be Coming Back!', awesome. I think this artwork may be unique to the UK quad, I don't think it was used for subsequent VHS or DVD releases. Again no special mention of Jamie Lee Curtis and even more embarrassingly she is credited behind Ben Johnson this time.

Default 1000 views!

So this little thread I started has just inched past the 1000 view count! I really hope that those that have clicked on the thread and took the time to have a look at my quads have liked them. I still have lots more to pictures to post so here are a couple more cool double 80's bill quads....

This is an awesome quad for the sleazy slasher Don't Answer the Phone! and something called Angels Hard as they Come which I have never heard of and surely can't be as good as it's provocative artwork suggests, can it? Topless women are a theme in this quad with both woman's nipples obscured, the 'R' in Answer for the slasher and the woman's strands of hair in the other. I have seen Don't Answer the Phone! but can't remember anything about it, it's a slightly awkward title and I don't get the tagline. Don't Answer the Phone! ...He'll Know your Alone! makes no sense. So the tagline is saying that you only answer phone calls if you are alone? I have answered phone calls before when there has been other people around me/in the house and it didn't seem to matter...

IMAG1024.jpg

Next up is a 'Terrific Double Action Programme!' of the two Canon ninja films Revenge of the Ninja and Enter the Ninja which are a logical pairing for a double bill. Because of BBFC rules at the time with martial arts weaponry both were heavily cut when released theatrically in the UK, Revenge of the Ninja was cut but a massive 5 minutes 57 seconds while Enter the Ninja fared slightly better with just 4 minutes 37 seconds cut by the BBFC which makes over 10 minutes worth of cuts across the two films. Both have since been released uncut on DVD here in the UK.

Revenge of the Ninja Enter the Ninja.jpg

While a lot of quads have awesome artwork many are not signed by the artist, in this case this quad is signed by Tom Chantrell who painted lots of UK quads back in the 70's and 80's. Most featuring topless women. Other than the Don't Answer the Phone! and Angels Hard as they Come quad he did the artwork on the likes of Satan's Slave, the two Confessions of a Sixth Form Girl quads, Vampyres, Food of the Gods, Silent Scream and Q, The Winged Serpent and I think even the original Star Wars artwork to name but a few.

Chantrell sig.jpg

Here is a slightly closer look at the awesome artwork for Angels Hard as they Come which was the second film on a double bill with Don't Answer the Phone!, like Revenge of the Ninja and Enter the Ninja both films were cut by the BBFC for their theatrical run here in the UK. Don't Answer the Phone! suffered about 1 minute worth of cuts while Angels Hard as they Come was cut according to the BBFC website there is no specific amount of cuts given.

Default I'm back!

Here we go again, two more horror film quads from 1975 and 1976.

From 1975 and the mind of William Castle comes Bug which has nothing to do with the William Friedkin film of the same name from 2006. I know I have seen Bug (both the '75 one and the '06 one) but can't remember anything about it (them). Since when do Cockroaches look like rocks? Has anyone ever mistook a Cockroach for a rock? Also this quad says they eat 'Ashes' which is hardly threatening is it? Why not they eat human flesh or something nasty like that? Why on Earth was this given an 'X' certificate? It was passed as a '15' in 1987 and would surely get a '12' at most now. This quad features one aspect I hate about some posters, making the central image/artwork black and white as I think it usually looks far less effective.

Bug.jpg

And here from a year later in 1976 we have an original UK quad for the supernatural horror film Burnt Offerings which was only given an 'AA' rating back then but was upgraded to a '15' when it was released on DVD in the UK back in 2002. The bright yellow on this quad is quite nice, the artwork of the house is cool and quite atmospheric as well while the title etched into a concrete slab finishes it off nicely. Good film too.

Burnt Offerings.jpg

According to the quad Burnt Offerings was 'Selected Best Horror Film of the Year!' by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films whoever they are/were. Would the average person in the UK know who they were back in 1976? I suspect not, I suppose it didn't hurt to put it on the quad though.

Default The Exorcist.

Here a couple of Exorcist themed quads I have in my collection.

First up is the double bill quad of the first two Exorcist films, as you can see it's nothing special and is basically a combination of artwork from the individual quads of the films. The shot of the Priest outside the house illuminated a mysterious beam of light from the bedroom window and Regan's face from the quad below... To be honest I don't really like either film, sure The Exorcist is good but I don't think it is the masterpiece many make it out to be while Exorcist II: The Heretic is just plain awful. Personally this double feature sounds like a bum achingly boring 4 hours to me.

The Exorcist The Exorcist II The Heretic.jpg

This quad is much, much darker and the black should be a lot blacker (like the double bill above) but the flash on the camera makes it look a lot lighter than it is in reality. Like you can clearly see the artwork of Regan's face on this quad was used on the double bill quad above but just given a yellowy tint instead of pure white. To be honest this is one of the most boring quads I own, this artwork fails to stimulate or intrigue and Warner's were obviously relying on name value rather than eye-catching artwork. This one only cost me 5 from eBay and mine was the opening and only bid on it, I wasn't surprised really as it is just a really dull, lifeless and pretty awful quad for an absolutely terrible film. I am still happy to have it in my collection though.

Default Exterminate your Postman!

A couple more from my collection.

Here is the original UK quad for the vastly overrated The Exterminator which I personally don't think is anything special, this quad features a large full uncropped image of the guy in a motorcycle helmet wielding a flamethrower who never appears in the actual film. Also note that the 'flame' shooting out of the 'flamethrower' is actually painted on top of the photo and isn't real flame at all. Also note my Mark of the Devil and The Incredible Melting Man Blu-ray's as some sort of reference for size, these quads really are huge! Not a particularly great quad to be honest, the BBFC cut 44 seconds out of the UK theatrical release based on the Unrated version. The fold lines are quite noticeable on this quad but I would much rather have those than the quad rolled.

The Exterminator.jpg

Wow! What an inappropriate double bill this is! 'Two Blockbusters for the Price of One!', since when did anyone ever describe The Exterminator as a 'Blockbuster'? First you watch the tender drama The Postman Always Rings Twice with Jack Nicholson then the gritty exploitation film The Exterminator! Two mismatched films for a double bill if there ever were two. As you can see the photo of the guy is flipped so he is actually facing right rather than left, the 'X' certificate is now white rather then red and the tagline is in a different place but I actually prefer this double bill quad to the single as your not missing anything from the single and get artwork for another film too, even if it's not particularly good. Unlike The Exterminator it's co-feature The Postman Always Rings Twice has always been uncut in the UK.

The Postman Always Rings Twice The Exterminator.jpg

Here is a close-up of the bottom left hand corner of The Exterminator (and the bottom right hand corner of The Incredible Melting Man it seems) which proudly states 'Dolby Stereo in Selected Theatres' which is absent from the double bill above and is unusual for a quad to mention something like Dolby Stereo back in the early 80's, I can't remember another quad I own that does, in fact.

The Exterminator Dolby Stereo.jpg

Here are another couple of early 80's horror film quads from my [I]modest[I] collection.

First up is The Incubus which I think is an absolutely terrible film. Note again this quad has both an '18' and 'X' certificate as this was released when the UK were changing from one set of certificates to the other. This is quite a nice quad actually, the photo doesn't really show how much the pink lettering on 'The Incubus' pops and how deep the black is on the rest of the artwork. It's also interesting to note The Incubus was distributed by the home video releasing company VTC who according to this quad had already released the VHS which is very unusual, I can't think of too many films that got a VHS release before a theatrical run.

Next up is the David Bowie vampire flick The Hunger directed by Tony Scott which I personally don't think much of. Sorry for the rubbish photo but it's not the greatest quad anyway, there's a chunk missing from the top left hand corner but I can promise you that at least it was cheap.
