It would be cool to have a monster room filled with all these cool old posters.

Well hunted down Mac!
Actually prominently featuring the monster is funny, because it's the weakest part of the film!
Blanco and you should spin the disc soon and let me know what you thought of it.

I like the second one best, it looks as if it were painted in a driving rain.

Blancodeviosa said...

ok al, i will check it out tonight. thanks for the link

bucky- well i didn't want to say anything about your "friends". i know how sensitive you are about it.

MacGuffin said...

Blanco- Why am I not surprised. :)

Kristi- That'd make a cool movie room fo sho.

Al- Thanks. I liked the monster! I thought it was was fairly well done for the period of time in question. I liked it quite a bit overall and probably try to hunt the dvd down.

Buckaroo- Who'r you tryin to kid, boyscout. :)

Mob- I can't really decide which I like best.

Blanco- Speaking of figments.. :)

I agree with the Mobster...I like the second one also. I prefer the blue, yellow, & white colors that were used & the monster is in the background, but he has a better presence back there.

The first one is too sloppy for my taste, I feel that is isn't as well planned as the second one. Too childish maybe & the red is distracting.

(again, this is just my humble opinion, I'm no art critic by any means.)

As for Bucky...well, what can be said...he is a boyscout, but I luv 'em. :)

MacGuffin said...

Pookie- I really like the way the red POPS in the first one but then again, I like the more understated tone of the Italian poster as well. Great movie, you and Mr. boyscout (he knows I kid w/ love) should give it a viewing.

Pookie said...

Mac-Daddy-Guff - (i can't help myself, i love nicknames). I'll ask my Boyscout (he knows you kid w/love) if he can hook us up and get a copy of this for our viewing pleasure. It seems be highly recommended by you and "Senor" Al. Thanks

Al said...

Gracias.

MacGuffin said...

Pookie- That what all the ladies call me. Okay, only in my dreams...

Blancodeviosa said...

is mac daddy guff what the neighbor was yelling at you?
i thought she was saying mac doody puff

sKincarver said...

Now your talking.
Find me some Haxan, dammit.

MacGuffin said...

Blanco- Don't be jealous of our rednecked beer guzzling neighbors, there's enough mac-daddy-guff to go around.

Skin- I looked but to no avail sir, posters from the twenties esp obscure films like Haxan are extremely rare. Besides, I gave you some Haxan, dammit. Keep the suggestions coming though. Glad you dug the posters.

I too prefer the second one. I recently watched this movie at the suggestion of someone at the cinemaslave forum.

the monster is the weakest part which is why the second poster is bitchin'. They're totally proud of him. (and really, for the time, I thought he was fine!)

MacGuffin said...

Ellen- I liked the monster! Esp for the time period and considering the monetary restraints involved.
