awesome movie poster friday - the CHIRASHI edition!

It has been a hotter than hot minute since I've done an Awesome Movie Poster Friday, but the drought ends right now! For one post, at least! 

I've been collecting chirashi for a couple of years now, and I figured it's high time to scan and post some of 'em. Chirashi are mini-posters/flyers (~ 7" x 10") given out at Japanese movie theaters during a film's run; they've got sweet-ass artwork (usually created exclusively for the Japanese market) on the front and a shit-ton of info I can't read (YET) on the back. I love them. Of course I do...look at them. I want to marry them all!

Good stuff. I'd hang that Poltergeist II poster on my wall.

Yeah that Poltergeist II one is way cooler than any poster for Poltergeist II has the right to be

I had so much work to do today, but now I guess I just have to look at these beauties over and over until I go blind instead. *sigh*

These are neat. I love the Convent one. Is that the Adrienne Barbeau Convent?

The Swarm one makes me want to know how to say, "Bees! Bees! Millions of Bees!" in Japanese.

tis indeed THAT The Convent! I love that they carried over the day-glo aesthetic into the art

Who the hell is that woman at the bottom of the My Bloody Valentine one? On its front I mean. The one with her hand in her hair. I've seen that movie a dozen times and I don't remember that woman. She looks like what you'd find if you googled "harried employee" stock images

She's the gal who gets impaled on the pipe...the scan doesn't relay the color well but in the actual image her sweater is purple. Although the idea of her being a stock image is way more exciting
