Ok, maybe this has been discussed here but I bet many of you will agree the movie covers/posters for 80's movies were so awesome! They just have this fun playful feeling to them. Many are pretty quirky too. You don't see too many movie covers like the ones that were made in the 80's. What are some of your favorites? Also, does anyone know the cheapest, best site for ordering old movie posters?

I know there's a lot of different artwork for the original A Nightmare On Elm Street, but the
pic above is similar to what was used for the original rental tape released by 20th Century Fox
in 1986 here in Holland.
It always made me feel a little uneasy.. and it's not because of the Freddie Krueger silhouette.
I guess it's the feeling that anything could happen in that normal house in a normal neighborhood
to anyone who happens to fall asleep. (and we all do that on a regular basis)

Scary stuff indeed.. especially when you're still a kid.

Johnny R, couldn't agree with you more on that cover. Simple, quite, and creepy as hell.

Ok, I thought I'd lighten it up a bit in here. I just loved the cartoon looking covers of the 80's, they were the best

I found this website that looks like it has potential. I will look at it more later. Does anyone know how to post these type of pictures when you can't open the link?

i've got that omega dvd release of zero boys johnny,i purchased a few from the nico mastorakis collection - blind date,sky high,grandmother's house & in the cold of the night.
great quality releases but you're right the new artwork for zero boys can't even compete with the original.

a few more posters i liked.

 -
simple but effective poster for tightrope - 1984

 -
steve martin losing his head in the man with two brains.1983


 -

 -

Young Warrior,

i have some dvds in that Nico Mastorakis collection too. Not all though.
I don't have Sky High, Glitch and Bloodstone unfortunately. Grandmother's House and In The Cold Of The Night
are fun little thrillers. I wasn't too crazy about Blind Date though.

And Runaway is indeed a good 80s movie. I don't think it was ever released on dvd here in Europe though.
Oh well, i have the region 1 disc. [Big Grin]

Runaway is a classic sci-fi thriller. I own the R2 finnish dvd.

I love Nico Mastorakis movies and own Hired to Kill and Island of Death on R2 dvd (gonna check them out soon)
and The Time Traveler, Sky High, The Zero Boys, Terminal Exposure, The Wind, Bloodstone, Grandmother´s House and In the Cold of the Night on vhs.
