    I used to collect posters, so I have a pretty large stash: everything from original US "Mean Streets," "The Tenant," "Nosferatu" (Herzog), "Stranger than Paradise" (I can go on) to Italian originals of Pasolini films, to French originals of everything (lots of those living in Montréal), and reprints of Romero/Ferrara/Hooper. I sold some original US horror posters last year: 'The Fog," "The Howling," and "Funhouse."

    Over my desk, I have a "Night of the Living Dead" reprint, and a laminated "Grand Guignol" Theatre reprint (the first poster to hit the streets of Paris in 1901).

    But the "pride of my collection" is an original "Vertigo" - with Saul Bass' signature.

    These are all reprints, they are all not very big, and are in a plastic cover, but here are some of my posters (signed). This is The Evil Dead. You can't tell, but it is signed by all three Ladies of the Evil Dead.

    Here is a shot of my Exorcist reprint signed by Linda Blair. With my ultra cheap, $50 digital camera/webcam, I can't get very good shots. :(

    I won it for 26 US and the shipping was 6 so 32 bucks total. I'd say it was worth it since it's an original. I need 2 more posters to decorate my room but I don't know which ones to get. A George Romero movie sounds good though.

    Also sinister, I'm jealous of your huge Phenomena poster!

    I have a shitload. Been collecting posters for years. Mostly heavy metal stuff but I've got a few good horror posters. The pride of my collection is my humongous plastic The Frighteners hologram.
