    THAT was the ad used for HUMONGOUS when it played in my town, not the one with the baby cradle!

    Same here! I remember getting my aunt and uncle to mail movie sections, as they lived in a bigger city. I had quite a collection...I love that others did this too!:glasses:

    Every time this thread comes back up I regret tossing all the clippings I had when I moved out of my mom's place. Brings back such memories to see these. It has made me start looking for old photos on line of theaters that I saw stuff like this in...amazingly I found a pretty good pic of the theater I saw Halloween, Creepshow, The Unseen, Terror Train and bunch of others at, just wish the marquee was showing one of those movies! Gotta keep on looking I guess. The place is now a community theater and I have been told they have a pretty extensive collection of photos of the history of the building. I am planning a road trip to PA next month and if time allows I may call in some favors and see if I am able ot get some access to any of them

    Thanks, all! I have some real gems on the way. I just saw that my ad for The Burning is on the DVD when Tom Savini is talking about the film! I wish I had known. I have a few mint ones that would have looked better.

    I went to see that double feature when it played locally at the drive-in. It was a life changing experience for me. :)

    Man, this thread is bitter-sweet for me.

    I was alive and recall seeing most of these ads, and wanting so bad to see the films.
    But, I was too young to go to an R without sneaking in or having a friend's parents or brother get us in, and my folks would not take me to the movies, ever. My dad was so against it, saying they play it free on TV in a couple years, so "watch something else playing on TV now". Of course I didn't understand edited for TV back then, much less aspect ratios and shit. He probably didn't either, so he's not a dick but cheap ass (although having an inheritence when he passed more than made up for not being able to talk with my friends in elementary school about Motel Hell or Friday the 13th 3D when they originally played, and I would be years away from seeing them and completely out of the loop and not cool).

    It's sweet in that dvd has let me catch up and see all those films I wanted to finally. A few are still MIA, but I've caught almost everything I've ever wanted to see between dvd and the internet (downloads, trades, etc.).

    I have boxes of these things in my closet and used to cut them out every week of my youth. We had the North and South Drive Ins back in the day and some of the ads for stuff like House by the Cemetery,Basket Case and even Massacre Mansion,were the best.

    I used to have a lot of these clippings as a kid, but they became brittle and yellowed so much that a lot of just split and crumbled!!

    Gates of Hell/ Nightmare (in a Damaged Brain)
    House By The Cemetery/ Horror Planet
    Night of the Zombies/ Bloodeaters
    Screamers(1981)/ The Evil
    Zombie/ Boogeyman/ Blood Beach
    Guardian of Hell (Other Hell)/ The Craving (Night of the Werewolf)/ Burial Ground
    Poltergeist/ The Beast Within
    The Thing/ (can't remember)
    Boggy Creek 2/ House Where Death Lives
    Return of the Living Dead/ (can't remember)
    Friday the 13th Part 2/ My Bloody Valentine
    Dawn of the Dead/ Mother's Day
    Pieces/ Mortuary
    and I know there were some more

    ...ah the good old days of childhood.

    I only have one picture of a trade ad, and it should come as no surprise to anyone what it is;
