I loved that poster and the movie was insane for a teenage kid like myself at the time.

The funny thing is the creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bought the magazine "Heavy Metal" and is still the owner today. Two 80's things collide.

One of the weirdest 80's movies I have seen. I saw it recently mostly because the cover looked so damn good. I usually don't do that since a cover is not always the best judge of a good movie. Some of the worst movies sport the best covers. The cinematography was good, but the story was a complete mess. Hardly anything memorable except for the switchblade plastic bird scene near the end. Also the bonus interviews were pretty good. All, but the last one.

Picked this up the other day pretty cheap of ebay a 1983 UK quad poster for - street fleet which is known originally as DC cab in the us.


Also about 3 or 4 weeks back from the same seller picked up really good condition original UK cinema quads for - the young warriors and - the party animal also rather cheap - under 5 UK pounds each which I think for the age and condition of the posters for a fan of the movies in question is a bit of a bargain.

I picked up another really cheap quad poster the other day of ebay,no mercy from 1986 starring Richard gere and Kim basinger,always liked this movie.

Really pleased with the quality of the poster as well,it's sometimes pot luck with the condition considering how old they are but so far I've been really lucky and all but one (10 to midnight) poster has been in more or less near perfect condition.

Yeah, it's a good one !

Even though many of these covers are slightly different from the ones we had over here, it's still a trip down memory lane.

For anyone who grew up in the UK this must be pure nostalgia ! [Smile]

great article there atomik,i'll definitely pick this book up when i get the chance,looking at that savage island cover you can see why so many people were took in by it,i've never seen it myself but i know you have and i think from what i remember being told it's an absolute mess!

from those i've watched on the guardian page -
dead end drive in which i thought was none to bad,moving violations was a lot of fun,hobo with a shotgun was bonkers,never seen - never too young to die though but would like to.

never thought i'd see these awesome pics in the guardian newspaper of all places [Big Grin]

not a very good picture (taken with my google nexus tablet at night) but this is the latest original uk quad poster i picked up,cost me just a bit over 6 uk pounds of ebay,really pleased with the condition of it!

did bid on a original uk quad for the christain slater film - kuffs but got outbid on it and also - poltergeist 2 and the horror comedy house but lost out on them also.

nevermind maybe next time!

You seem to be picking up lots and lots of rather odd posters. Is there a pattern to your collecting?

Aaah, 52 Pick-Up, such a classic Cannon feature. I like the way warrior collects. Those quad poster are smaller but the same information´s there.
We´ve never had any quad posters here but there seems to be lots of 80s movie posters available at the moment. Too bad i don´t have a mancave.

Basically Logan if it's a poster to a movie I like I'll go for it,main factor being always the price,it's got to be at the right price,the cheaper the better!


I love 52 pick up,a definite cannon 80s sleazefest with the great roy scheider,this - blue thunder,Cohen and Tate,jaws etc. - awesome actor!


Another thing is the posters store easy,normally always posted folded between two sheets of card so I keep them on top off one of my deep bookcases,the only poster I've got that is in a postage tube is unlawful entry which came rolled as it's a newer poster - 1992.

All quad posters from the 80s were normally sent out to the cinemas folded where as come the 90s this pratice was changed to them being rolled.

picked this up the other day of ebay an original uk cinema quad poster for chuck norris's - code of silence.

love to pick up the original missing in action uk quad if i could find one cheap enough!

the mad mission films,i remember the covers well from the video shop,never seen any of them though,must have been popular to spawn five further sequels after the 1982 original.
