Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #132!

Jigsaw  (Universal Studios, 1968)

This flick was planned as a TV movie, but NBC got nervous at the drug plot and the movie was released to theaters instead - well, a few theaters, anyway. Then NBC went ahead and aired it in an edited form. The most interesting thing is that the movie stars Bradford Dillman, Harry Guardino, and Pat Hingle, but after his Oscar  nomination look who they pushed to the forefront on the poster - Michael J Pollard!

Laserblast  (The Irwin Yablans Company, 1978)

Ah! Now here's a gem! Well, sort of, anyway. An early Charles Band production - and one of the first movies I ever rented. On BETA. (I will never get tired of rolling that little nugget out!) However, when I told Charles Band that face to face - on stage - he not only wasn't much impressed - he knocked me down a notch with his comeback. Want to know more about that? There's two posts from exactly three years ago - September 2010 - that deal with my experiences with Mr. Band and his films over the years. You can find them to your right with two clicks - and you won't have any trouble finding the pun post titles!

Savage!  (New World Pictures, 1973)

I want to see pretty much every New World picture ever - and this one is high on the list after seeing clips of it in Machete Maidens Unleashed! Besides, who doesn't love a movie title that brings its own punctuation to the party?

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


  1. BETA?! Wow, that goes back a ways. That Laserblast poster looks hand-drawn and goofy. BTW we're doing a post on movie posters today. You should check it out! http://bit.ly/14FzDiU

    1. Well, to be fair, I was a wee lad barely in double digits. I loved your poster post today! Are they just grand pieces of art?
