I reviewed War in space and Message from space is coming soon. These films and a number of others were inspired or influenced to some extent by either Star Wars itself or it’s success. Star Wars fans tend to foam at the mouth and scream “ripoff” about some of these films which I always find funny since Star Wars borrowed from The Dam Busters. Other fans may find something to like in these films too. Anyways I have a soft spot for a number of these movies and here are some posters.
England’s Amicus films made a number of horror and sci-fi flicks between the early 1960’s and the mid-1970’s. They were the rival of Hammer films. Amicus were know for their horror anthology films and they mad seven of those, but they made other films as well. Here are some posters for some of their movies.
I know the pictures are not the best, but that’s on me not the posters. This is a poster of Cry of the Banshee starring Vince Price. An okay looking gothic horror about a werewolf like creature they try to pass off as a banshee. Overall it’s fairly average. However this poster is pretty cool. Very much a product of the early 1970’s with the colors and swirling image. I got this for $9 on Buy it now through eBay probably in 2002. It has some slight holes around the deep creases, but still well worth what I paid for it.
When we think of Disney films we likely think of cartoons. However over the years they have knocked some some sci-fi and fantasy films with you know actual real people in them. Some of those types of films have been quite good. A number of the ones that are just average normally had some good visuals in them too because Disney of course has money to put behind their movies. Here is just a selection of posters for some of those films.
