Here's a case where the poster far outstrips the movie it is advertising. The Crater Lake Monster is a throwback to the creature features of the 1950's, right down to the awesome stop motion animation used to bring the monster to life. But the film is beyond slight - and represents the only filmic output of nearly everyone involved - except for visual effects guru Dave Allen - who had a fine career in movies and television before his untimely death a few years ago.
So, the movie is not that great - although a nostalgic fave of mine - but I don't think anyone would say that isn't a terrific and gorgeous piece of cinematic advertising up there.
Until tomorrow's post, which I hope will rock "D" world for you - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
