My Movie Poster Collection: Quads and Sods

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).

Belgian Posters;

US One Sheets;

Other Posters;

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?

    I have a huge collection of posters from the 80,s and 90’s and 2000. I also have a VHS collection and want to know if any is worth anything?

      I’d certainly be interested to know which posters/tapes you had, and if you weren’t willing to part, at least I could shed some light on worth (where I can).

    I have promos from the 1984-1994 era – several hundred posters, rolled and folded and other memorabilia such as sweatshirts, t-shirts, plus other clothing and non-clothing promo items. I have most on EXCEL lists which I would be glad to pass on. My wife and I are retired and must downsize, therefore, all are for sale. The lists may not be 100% accurate, but within 95%.

      Firstly, thank you so much for getting in touch, nice to see the site still reaches out.

      I would be extremely interested in anything you may have that is either video related or even better, video store related. Please send anything you have over to [email protected]

      I’ll look forward to it!!
