Another couple of nice posters

British quads for Peter Walker's slasher / giallo styled Schizo and Jess Franco's Count Dracula, complete with Christopher Lee in a move that probably annoyed Hammer.

Note that the tagline has been changed from 'killing' to 'doing'

Hi, that Schizo quad brings back a lot of memories. In the house of my childhood, my cool Dad used film posters to paper the walls in a few rooms. Posters for films like this, Death Weekend, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Hells Angels on Wheels. These images and especially their taglines are imprinted on my mind, I used to wander around the house wondering what they meant exactly?! The Schizo one was the most memorable and years later I had the pleasure of watching the film itself for the first time, sitting next to Pete Walker himself, at The Manchester Festival of Fantastic Films. Love the blog. Cheers, Link.

Great stories, Lincoln.

My dad has always encouraged my interest in 'bad' films, and has some interesting memories of attending exploitation stuff at one of The Jacey chain, though I can't compete with yours bringing home posters, nor with sitting next to Walker at a screening, which must have been very cool ;-)
