Great seeing these. Brings back memories of good ol' trips to the cinema, and the local rental shop.

Was it me but did rental shops all have that unique smell?

Thanks for your reply, I am posting these to maybe stir up old fond memories in people and for other's to just look at these quads and say how cool they are. While I was too young to see these sort of horror and exploitation films in cinemas in the 70's and early 80's I love the artwork, taglines and just owning these things from a bygone era.

Ha! It definitely wasn't just you, the old video rental shop I used to get my parents to rent horror films from had a 'back room' that they put all the softcore sex and horror tapes in. I am positive as a young boy looking around that room at the lurid horror covers and great titles (they even had those coffin shaped VHS boxes Fox released some of it's horror titles in like A Nightmare on Elm Street) they left a huge impression on me even if the films rarely lived up to the artwork. And yes, it smelt of old plastic!

Anyway, a couple more horror quads from the mid 70's for your viewing pleasure...

ELECTRIFYING SUSPENSE... UNBELIEVEABLE TERROR! First up is a cool double bill of The Terror of Dr Chaney and Revenge of the Dead both of which suffered title changes for their UK cinematic release. The surprising good The Terror of Dr Chaney is a retitle of the Charles Band exploitation film Mansion of the Doomed which I quite like actually. Originally released here in the UK as The Terror of Dr Chaney it later turned up on VHS under the title Massacre Mansion with awesome artwork and then was released on an awful quality DVD under it's original title Mansion of the Doomed so three releases under three different titles for the same film. Revenge of the Dead is actually a retitle of the supernatural slasher film Meatcleaver Massacre in which footage of Christopher Lee was apparently used without his knowledge or consent and is credited 'As The Host' on this quad, absolutely awful artwork for the film too.

The Terror of Dr. Chaney Revenge of the Dead.jpg

TERROR THAT RIPS THE SCREAMS RIGHT OUT OF YOUR THROAT! Next is a very red and green double bill of Blood Mania and Stanley. I can never figure eBay out, sometimes rubbish quads make lots of money while an awesome quad such as this sold for 10. Needless to say I was happy to add it to my collection for that price.

Blood Mania Stanley.jpg

COME PREPARED FOR THE SHOCKING CLIMAX urges this artwork. I have never seen Blood Mania or even heard of it so I can't say one way or the other but I am prepared to bet no such precautions are necessary to watch this.

Blood Mania.jpg

I love this, here is a slightly closer look the bottom half of the artwork for the killer Snake film Stanley complete with the serious sounding CAUTION PERSONS SUFFERING FROM HERPETOPHOBIA (FEAR OF SNAKES) SHOULD CONSULT THEIR PHYSICIANS BEFORE ATTENDING. Awesome, just awesome. Those were the days.

Default 1988...

Right, a couple more from my collection. Two entertainingly good horror films from 1988 that were unfortunately and undeservedly box-office bombs the world over. A shame, especially The Blob as I think it's a terrific film.

I must admit that I really like the US One Sheet artwork for The Blob as well, the photo of the pink slime with the shadow of a woman inside it but the alternative UK artwork is cool too. '...One of the Most Smashing Films in the Entire Universe' indeed. Also, would anyone actually describe The Blob as 'Wonderfully Funny'? Sure, it doesn't take itself too seriously but 'Wonderfully Funny'? I am not sure about that one. The Blob was released on VHS several times during the 90's here in the UK but has since all but disappeared, it never even made it to DVD over here.

The Blob.jpg

Next up is the sequel Fright Night Part 2, again from 1988 which I haven't seen in years, since it last played late night telly here in the UK in fact. This photo is a little blurred and has some annoying glare which is a shame as it's one of my favourite quads, it's awesome with Vampire face in mist above the collage campus thingy. Fantastic artwork and a quad I would love to have hanging on my wall but I don't have the space at the moment. Also like The Blob Fright Night Part 2 was released a couple of times on VHS in the early 90's in the UK but also disappeared, again like The Blob it was never even released on DVD here.

Default I hate rolled quads.

I haven't dipped my toe into this thread for a while and posted any pictures so here are a couple more awesome mid 70's double bill quads for your enjoyment.

First up is a double bill of the absolutely awful 'comedy' horror Burke and Hare, or The Horrors of Burke and Hare to give it it's full and proper title which is paired up with the crappy looking Western More Dead than Alive. I doubt I would have survived both of these films on a double bill. I have mentioned it before but I absolutely hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate quads that have been rolled. I hate them. In this case some total knob-head has had this quad and decided along with massive fold lines they would love it to be rolled to within an inch of it's life too so now we have the worst of both worlds, massive pronounced fold lines and the fact that it just wants to curl back up so you can't look at the bloody thing properly. This quad has been at the bottom of my pile of quads for months in an effort to try and flatten it out but even after all that time it still just wants to curl back up, as you can see the edges are still very curled and the longer I had this out the more they began to curl again.

The Horrors of Burke & Hare More Dead than Alive.jpg

A nice flat quad in mint condition you can actually look at properly, who would have thought that was a good idea? Here we have the Blaxploitation action film Slaughter paired up with Boxcar Bertha in a great looking quad. Both of these quads cost less than 15 each, I'd call that more than reasonable.

Slaughter Boxcar Bertha.jpg

Everyone has to start somewhere, right? In the case of Martin Scorsese it was back in 1972 when he directed Boxcar Bertha for Roger Corman, who could have guessed back then Scorsese would have gone on to become one of the most respected director's to ever live?

Default Horror quads.

The thread has just past 1500 views, here are a couple more late 80's horror film sequel quads that would never get a theatrical release now.

First up is Basket Case 2, I haven't seen it in many years but I remember not liking it that much and being inferior to the original Basket Case in every aspect. Maybe I should watch it again and give it another go. Although originally rated '18' by the BBFC that was lowered to a '15' for later releases.

Basket Case 2.jpg

Even though Return of the Living Dead Part II gets a lot of stick I actually prefer it to the original Return of the Living Dead which although a good film I think is vastly overrated. The silly tagline 'Just when You Thought it was Safe to be Dead' sums up the lowbrow simplistic humour that doesn't always work but it's still an enjoyable horror/comedy. Cool quad too. Although originally rated '18' by the BBFC that was lowered to a '15' for later releases... that sounds familiar.

Default Another sequel.

I should really have included this quad for The Fly II in my last post as it fills the criteria. Late 80's? Check. Horror film sequel? Check. Classic original? Check.

I actually think this is a terrible quad, most of it is just black, the 'Like Father. Like Son.' tagline in red looks out of place and the central image of the quad isn't that good. Having said that I can understand why the quad was designed this way, the teleporter from the original film and a young boy standing in front of it was absolutely the right way to advertise the film but looking at it in 2015 in isolation as a quad in it's own right it's terrible. At least it cost me less than 5 so I can't complain too much and it's still nice to have as part of my collection. Maybe my least liked quad I own.

Very nice. I've seen a few UK quads go on eBay that were of interest to me, but, I know that I wouldn't be able to get them framed right away due to the size.

Thanks, it's taken a long time to get my collection to where it is now! I probably started at the right time and managed to buy most of them before they started to go for silly money on eBay. However, you can still pick up a bargain every now and again. Size is a big issue, on one hand they are huge and look fabulous if displayed properly (or even if you just lay them flat on the floor they look impressive) but you really can't hang more than two or three at a time. I have three in my room in 30x40 frames that snap open so I can change them round as often as I like but they were expensive frames and I have no idea where I got them from now.

I can't think of any other countries that use the landscape format over the portrait style like the US so a lot of the time the artwork is unique.

Here are a couple more from my collection, today I will post some supernatural Exorcist rip-offs/cash-ins that British cinema goers could enjoy during the 70's...

'She Was Young. She Was Beautiful. She Was Next!' Not the best film in the world but I really like the quad for The Sentinel, I am not sure why but I really like it. Simple yet very effective in my opinion, for what it's worth.

The Sentinel.jpg

An absolute mint condition UK quad of the Italian Exorcist rip-off The Antichrist which cost me less than a 10, this is an alright quad but isn't one of my favourites with just the title and little else. I can definitely say I am 'Shockproof' since I have seen it and I can't say it's a great film either but it's OK in a cheap crazy Italian exploitative sort of way I suppose.

Default When Animals Attack!

Just to further emphasise a point in my previous post about still being able to find bargains on eBay late last week I won...

... this UK double bill quad for Kingdom of the Spiders and The Redeemer for 9.99! 'A Living, Crawling Hell on Earth.' starring William Shatner! I usually don't like them but I think this is one quad where the single colour approach works quite well for each film. I am surprised the fairly harmless 'AA' rated Kingdom of the Spiders was paired up with the 'X' rated slasher The Redeemer as that instantly restricts your audience for the lower rated film. Awesome quad this, I really like it which is more than I can say for the films which are alright but not amazing, a decent horror double bill but I would really struggle to describe it as a 'Masterpiece of Terror and Suspense' like the quad boldly claims.

Kingdom of the Spiders The Redeemer.jpg

They even managed to get a sneaky little plug in for the 'best-selling' Kingdom of the Spiders paperback. I want one. The Redeemer is an odd little film, isn't it? I am not sure what audiences back in the late 70's would have thought of it really.

Kingdom of the Spiders paperback.jpg

More 'When Animals Attack' action with Day of the Animals paired up with the killer car flick The Car, another great quad this and another one where the one colour approach works very well. Putting two 'AA' rated films out together makes much more sense to me and to whoever paired these up, a pretty cool looking double bill here although once again neither film is amazing in my opinion.

The Car Day of the Animals.jpg

Yet more 'When Nature Runs Amok' antics in The Pack as killer Dogs ruin a holiday, again an 'AA' rated film paired up with the 'X' rated slasher Blue Sunshine. I haven't actually seen either of these films and the quad isn't the greatest one I have but it's nice enough. To be honest I have never been a huge fan of the 'When Animals Attack' genre, not sure why but I find they just don't work as films particularly well.

Default Films beginning with 'S'.

I have only bought two or three quads for the first three months this year then in the past week I have bought about five. Sometimes it goes like that. I won these on eBay last Friday and they came today, the films have nothing in common except they both start with the letter 'S'.

This quad for the British horror film Schizo from 1976 is awesome. Simple as that. This is the kind of quad that worries 'normal' people, artwork of black gloved hands reaching for a huge meat cleaver that would probably suit an Italian Giallo better actually. The top left hand of this quad has a little bit missing but it's nothing major and would have just been total black anyway while the top right has a white tape mark but again this does not bother me at all.

Schizo.jpg

A slightly closer look at the artwork, I would love to be able to frame this and hang it on a wall as this has become one of my very favourite quads. I have seen Schizo but I can't remember anything about it, does anyone actually get killed with a meat cleaver?

Schizo closer.jpg

Another killer animal film, however Sssssnake is more a genetic experiment gone wrong than a nature runs amok type killer animal flick. Just called Sssssss in the US I think the slightly different UK title Sssssnake is actually better. Like I always say I am not a fan of quads where all the colour is drained out and they are black and white but the one for Sssssnake actually looks alright to be fair. I have no idea what the woman on the left hand side of this quad is doing, none at all.

Sssssnake.jpg

Originally passed uncut with an 'X' certificate by the BBFC back in 1973 when Sssssnake was released on VHS here the title was changed back to Sssssss and the BBFC cut the Snake Mongoose fight on the grounds of animal cruelty and it is almost certain that this film will never see an uncut UK release because of it. One thing about this quad you can't really see is how bright the lettering is, it's almost luminous pink that looks pretty cool.

Nice collection Trampled!

I have mostly older horror posters, but I do have one UK quad for Rosemary's Killer (aka The Prowler in the US). I really do like the quad size for wall display, I've just never started collecting those (I could see sinking a lot of money into them because there are a ton of great ones out there).

Thanks, you know until recently I never really even considered the 'pile of old posters' on top of my wardrobe a collection but having recently gone through them all again and reminding myself of how awesome they are and how many I actually have I have changed my view, I feel they would be impossible to replace as well at this point because a lot of them are so rare I have only ever come across one (the one's I ended up buying, obviously).

Snap! I also own a UK quad for The Prowler, it's awesome isn't it? Maybe not one to show your friends and family but still awesome. I don't touch posters from other countries myself, there are far too many UK quads I want to even consider buying foreign posters.

The UK quads are amazing when framed and displayed properly, as you say the huge landscape size means they just dominate any wall and a lot of the artwork is just plain awesome. The way our eye's are and the way we see the landscape style also means they just look better than portrait style posters in my opinion (think a letterboxed widescreen film compared to a fullscreen one, which looks naturally better?). Money is a big issue, sure they are awesome but I never pay more than 20 for a quad unless it's something absolutely amazing and even then the most I have ever paid for a quad is 70. I often think people on eBay have more money than sense, I would not be able to start collecting from scratch today as some of the prices are just silly although you can still grab the occasional bargain like the Kingdom of the Spiders/The Redeemer double bill for under a tenner I bought a few weeks ago.

I also mainly collect horror posters but I do have a few that don't fall into that genre at all, here are three...

'Those crazy Cannonballers are at it again!' Silly action comedy that is great fun if you are in the right mood, totally awesome quad as well. I am surprised not to see Jackie Chan mentioned on this quad, was he not a big name back then? I am not sure. Frank Sinatra doesn't get a mention either but that's more understandable I suppose. Where I used to work we had a real 100% idiot as a supervisor and everyone used to call him Captain Chaos as he could literally mess up the simplest things and just caused problem after problem.

Cannonball Run II.jpg

I love Clue! No, really I do. I think it's a terrific murder mystery that I have always enjoyed watching. This is maybe the most unevenly folded quad I own, no big deal though. Great artwork again featuring the classic Cluedo cast of character's and weapons. I am not sure about the gory dripping blood under the title however, it's not really that type of film is it?

Clue.jpg

And finally for the time being we have the quite frankly awful Meteor starring Sean Connery during his wilderness years. I don't know how to feel about this quad, the artwork itself is awesome but it depicts the Twin Towers being hit and bursting into flames which after subsequent real life events just doesn't sit well with me. This is one quad I would never hang on my wall for that very reason, to me it just seems odd to look at it now. However, there is no denying how awesome the artwork and quad is and it's not like they knew what was going to happen. This quad for Meteor is in absolute mint condition, seriously it looks like it was printed yesterday and has never been used for anything.

Default Make mine a double!

Here are the two latest two quads I have won from eBay after bargain hunting on there.

My main philosophy when it comes to buying quads has always been don't spend silly money on them because A) I am a tight git and B) I don't think a large piece of paper is worth that much. What I personally do is wait until I see a quad I really like on eBay that is currently priced really low (less than 15 usually) and put a silly low bid on it, sure 9 times of out 10 I will be outbid and I say good luck to both the seller and buyer in that case but that is evened out by the 1 time out of the 10 I pick up an awesome quad for absolutely no money. The only down side to this approach is when I win two or three quads close together and that blows my miniscule budget for the month!

Here are two cases in point...

A double bill of The Brotherhood of Satan and Day of the Animals, I won this one for less than 15. It is in absolutely mint condition and I have never seen another one of these anywhere. The one thing I have to stress is just how bright the yellow is on this quad, if my power is ever cut off at night and I need some light then all I have to do is unfold this quad and my problems are solved. It's bright glow in the dark yellow and very striking. One curious aspect to this quad is that it does not feature any BBFC age certification, just an 'Over 18's' in the middle under the 'Plus'. I have never seen another UK quad that did not display a BBFC age certificate, whether it was one of the old letter certificates like 'A', 'AA' or 'X' or the newer age certificates like '12', '15' or '18'. Very strange and somewhat unique in that respect.

The Brotherhod of Satan Day of the Animals.jpg

Again an absolutely mint condition quad for a controversial double bill of Straw Dogs and Soldier Blue, pin sharp corners, no pin holes or tape marks, brilliant colours with no fading and it really does look like it was printed yesterday and not 40+ years ago. I won this one for less than 10, not the most exciting of quads but still bargain as far as I am concerned. Unlike the The Brotherhood of Satan/Day of the Animals quad both films clearly show the BBFC adults only 'X' certificate. I have always wanted to see Soldier Blu but have never got around to it.

Wow, I see this thread has now past 2000 views... which means... drum roll please... absolutely nothing. At all.

Here are a few more from my collection and the first quad I have won in about a month since the Straw Dogs/Soldier Blue double.

Original UK quad for the infamous sleazy UK slasher Killer's Moon, the only slasher ever to feature both a three legged Dog and a Cat with no tail. There was once a time when even seeing Killer's Moon was very difficult but now it's very easy to pick up on both DVD and Blu-ray. Hooray.

Killer's Moon.jpg

A double bill of the aforementioned Killer's Moon and Rolling Thunder although if you look at that quad you might be forgiven for thinking the film you are going to see is called The Hook. I like the way the artwork on Killer's Moon is rearranged to make it much more compact but I hate that all the colour has been drained and it's black and white. Still a really cool quad though.

The Hook Killer's Moon.jpg

After not buying a quad for several weeks one of my lowball bids on eBay paid off, I won this mint condition double bill quad for the Italian monster film Tentacles and something called Mr. Billion for 4.50. Bargain.

I love that Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome quad, I have often seen it for sale on eBay and have been close to pulling the trigger and buying it many times, one day I will own one.

The Keep! I am jealous, that would be a great quad for my collection, I really like the film and it would fit in perfectly. I must admit I think Paramount could have come up with a slightly more exciting or distinctive quad, I don't think a moody blue tinted photo of Gabriel Byrne would have exactly had people lining up outside the cinema.

I must admit I don't really have any quads from later than the mid 90's, Enemy of the State is certainly too modern for my tastes.

I have already posted this photo of my awesome An American Werewolf in London and Love at First Bite double bill quad on the previous page but...

An American Werewolf in London Love at First Bite.jpg

I remembered I had this equally awesome quad which is a virtual replica except Barber International Films Ltd. just switched the main feature from An American Werewolf in London to the most boring slasher film in history Prom Night and kept the co-feature the awful, laugh free zone Love at First Bite. Maybe they had quite a few release prints of Love at First Bite sitting around and needed to make some money out of them. Again, the one thing that this photo fails to convey is just how vibrant and bright the red/orange colouring is on this quad, it's almost glow in the dark levels and looks fantastic in reality.

Prom Night Love at First Bite.jpg

I have also already posted photo's of the single quads for Prom Night and Love at First Bite on the previous page as well so you can flip back and compare them if you like but it's cool to see both of these together and realise just how similar they are.

Yeah, it's nice when a 30 or 40 year old cinema quad turns up and it's in absolutely mint condition. I have a few that look like they were printed yesterday rather than 40 odd years ago, The Antichrist and Meteor are two that spring to mind as being in absolutely amazing condition and I paid less than 10 each for them.

While not absolutely mint, you can see a slight mark in the middle of the right hand edge, this original UK cinema quad for Terror in the Aisles is pretty awesome and it only cost me 6. This quad for Terror in the Aisles amazes me, not the quad, not the cool artwork or the fact it only cost me 6 but the very fact that Terror in the Aisles got a full theatrical release here in the UK back in 1985. I can't quite get my head around the idea of seeing a documentary in a cinema, I would find it bizarre and strange to watch anything in a cinema except a proper film. Terror in the Aisles of course is a 90 odd minute collection of various clips from various horror films introduced by Donald Pleasence.

Terror in the Aisles.jpg

According to the BBFC website they cut Terror in the Aisles by 10 seconds to remove footage from clips from Dressed to Kill (1980), Angel of Vengeance (1981) and Vice Squad (1982) but it would easily pass uncut now. The skull actually contains some of the titles of the films included in Terror in the Aisles, here is a closer look. Also, check out that cast! Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, Laurence Olivier, Faye Dunaway, Michael Caine, Anthony Perkins, Sissy Spacek, John Hurt, Jamie Lee Curtis and Debbie Harry. They could have also listed Drew Barrymore, James Woods, Kurt Russell, Malcolm McDowell, Oliver Reed, Sigourney Weaver, Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Gregory Peck, David Warner, Roy Scheider and Ray Milland as this featured clips from some seriously high profile horror films.

It's been a week or two since I last posted any new pictures here so...

I received this original UK quad for Prince of Darkness directed by John Carpenter last week and like Terror in the Aisles featuring Donald Pleasence. Not the best of photo's here but then this is a pretty rubbish quad anyway, in fact it's one of very few quads that I own that I would not even consider displaying on my wall. I only bid 10 for it and won it for 9 so for that price it's nice to have in the collection and it's in terrific condition but it is pretty forgettable as far as horror quads go. I was surprised to see this rated '18' because it's always been a '15' on home video here in the UK. The film itself is quite unusual and I think it's pretty good, not as good as some of Carpenter's earlier horror films but nowhere near as bad as some of his later ones.
