    Hahah I heart the final conflict that 9to5 AD next to it is laughable. LOL what is Roy Rogers I have never heard of that? After glancing at all your adds I have a theory on why movies suck now. Today's movies are over f'n produced too much spit shine. Digital film isn't helping either at all absolutely hate it!

    Thanks for these! I love 'em! How can there be so many great movies playing at the same time? These days, you're lucky to get one good one every few months. Talk about an embarrassment of riches back in the day.

    This.

    I own a Bloody Birthday poster. Bloody Birthday is one of the stupidest horror films I've ever laid eyes on!!!! It's not inept, or "bad" as such. Just so mind bogglingly stupid! But the poster? A whole other story.

    good times! Love them ALL. MANIAC's ad was censored in my hometown as well. The SF Chronicle never even showed the feet - only the title font.
    SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE was another censored ad.

    Wow,talk about nostalgia ! It always blows my mind how there were so many double.even TRIPLE bills and a new film was often backed by a couple of reissues.A brand new slasher being supported by a 70's Italian horror pic and THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE ! Also fun to see some retitling.The 1970's Amicus horror anthology ASYLUM reissued by some grindhouse distributer as HOUSE OF CRAZIES.There was an ''anything goes'' attitude back then that I kind of miss.So much entertainment today seems so pre programmed,so safe.I miss stuff like this.You generally don't see films like this anymore in a theater outside of a specialty theater.Funny how "Grindhouse" became "Arthouse".

    Most of today's film makers are a bunch of film school rich daddy fucks. No talent No vision No style rich pansy mommas boys too.

    Most actresses are only talented when they are on their knees. Put the 2 together and you have today's shit filmmakers.

    1981 was a great year for collecting horror ads. I started when THE FUNHOUSE was released on March 13. May was a great month (Friday Part 2, Happy Birthday to Me) but summer was dry, the horror releases seemed to stop until Hell Night came out in Sept. (except Planet of Horrors and Screamers). However, it was 1980 that was the hard-to-get ads year for me. I was able to snag HALLOWEEN because I found a stash of newspapers at school in a crafts class. I'm still searching for those damn things.
