As well as owning almost 2,000 VHS tapes, I also have a small number of movie posters that I have been steadily accumulating over the years. I mainly collect UK quads and Silkscreen prints but i’m also quite partial to the US one sheets and Belgium movie posters, the latter seem to be gaining a bit of a reputation at movie fares for their obscure artwork and print.
The Wrestler is signed by Mickey Rourke and was given to me by FHM and Empire magazine contributor, Olly Richards (aka @olly_richards on Twitter).
US One Sheets;
The (European) Evil Dead poster is twice the size of a standard UK quad, it’s huge, whereas The Go-Kids poster is 1/3 the size of a quad. That particular poster may have been up in a rental store at some point.
The Viva VHS poster in the ‘Other’ set was sent to me my Scarecrow Video in Seattle. I purchased the Race With the Devil one sheet and they packaged it up for me, when I got home (back to the UK) I found it tucked away inside. It’s just another reason why that store is the greatest on earth, bar none.
I also own a 10 foot cinema standee of Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, it was given to me by a friend. Added to that I also have various mini-quads which aren’t really worth adding on here. These include Shaun of the Dead, Collateral, The Terminal, Elizabethtown, Win a Date With Ted Hamilton and various others.
You wouldn’t believe the amount of movie related stuff i’ve gathered over the years, anyone for a Frog prop from Magnolia?
