    I need a Tenebre poster, I don't feel complete without one. I hope they have some at Horrorfind.

    I worked at movie theatres during high school and college, so I've amassed quite a collection. Some rare ones too. Unfortunately, most are the folded ones. I had a bunch of rolled ones in mint condition, then in one of the places I lived, we had a flood and it destroyed them all. The folded ones were in plastic tubs, so they were safe. Including my beloved Escape from NY original one sheet!! My favorite poster is framed. I got it at a convention years ago. It's the Italian movie poster for the first Terminator film. It was just like the American version except that Arnold's face is half endoskeleton, half human. The American version is all human. Also, the credits are in Italian and the poster is larger than an American one. I love this baby!!

    I've got loads of movie posters that I collected over the years (haven't bought any for a while though). Since I got my own house, I've gradually been framing my favourites and putting them up around the place.

    Done so far:

    House By The Cemetery 12 card french lobby set (the way I've arranged them it looks like a stained glass window at the end of my hallway - totally beautiful).
    Suspiria 8 card US lobby set. Boring set, but, hell, it's Suspiria!
    Tenebre 10 card lobby set.
    Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare 8 card lobby set.
    The Beyond - Aussie daybill
    Possessed (Manhattan Baby) - Aussie daybill
    Creepshow - Aussie daybill
    Raiders Of The Lost Ark - Aussie daybill
    Evil Dead - Aussie daybill
    Woman From Deep River (Cannibal Ferox) - Aussie daybill

    I've also got a TCSM repro 1-sheet signed by Gunnar Hansen framed inside a giant glass-top coffee table, and I've just had a Class Of 1984 1-sheet framed.

    Next in line: Dawn of the Dead & Deep Red 1-sheets.

    Well, I have a bunch. Around the walls of my home office though, I have four:

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Halloween
    Event Horizon
    Bird with Crystal Plummage

    I have Texas because it's just a brilliant film - one I underestimated for a long time. I watched it at first and thought, "Hm, kinda hyped up". But on multiple viewings, unlike most films, it got MORE SCARY. Weird.

    Halloween is just a personal favorite of mine. I honestly think the original film is just about as perfect as a horror flick can get.

    Event Horizon is a cross genre film that works on every level. I could watch this thing once a week and still enjoy it. It's a deep film, with unexpected turns.

    Bird with the Crystal Plummage - well - this poster is great because it is red and black, and it has two huge black gloved hands reaching for an insert of a womans face. The black gloves epitomize gaillo - so that's cool.

    I have tons in boxes too.

    Can someone give me a good place to get posters, or is eBay pretty much the only place?

    I got just about all of mine from a little shop in Amsterdam called Silver Screen - they have an amazing selection of horror stuff, posters, DVD, VHS, etc.

    Check out their site @

    http://www.silverscreen.nl/main.asp?LANGUAGE=ENGLISH

    They don't have all their horror posters listed, so it's probably worth an email if there's anything specific you're after. It says they do mail order, though i've only ever bought anything in person from the shop... if you're ever in Amsterdam it's well worth checking them out along with Boudisque which has an excellent horror/cult DVD section too.
