Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #33!

Color Me Blood Red  (Box Office Spectaculars, 1965)

The third in Herschell Gordon Lewis's "Blood Trilogy" - an artist discovers the perfect ingredient for the exact shade of red he likes to use in his art...can you guess what that ingredient is?

Switchblade Sisters  (Centaur Pictures Inc., 1975)

One of Quentin Tarantino's oft-mentioned faves - and one I've still not seen - although I've noticed it's in my instant Netflix queue now...

Force: Five  (American Cinema Releasing, 1981)

Yet another attempt by Enter the Dragon director Robert Clouse to replicate the success of that ultimate Bruce Lee classic with this semi-remake that tries to disguise the earlier story's theft by making the singular hero of Dragon a five person team. Another one I've always wanted to see, and it's escaped me for thirty years now...

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. I never get tired of seeing your classic movie posters. I've never heard of these flicks but it's very cool that these old movies are still alive and kicking somewhere in the universe. Movie poster art had difinitely changed. I think the 60s and 70s had the best.

  2. Luana - great to see you - yes, I really enjoy these posts as well, because these posters are sometimes really works of pop art that deserve to be seen and preserved. Back in the days before the internet and home video and even television, the posters were really the main method to get people to buy a ticket, so they were usually juiced up to the max. Always a pleasure to see you, thanks for stopping by!
