awesome movie poster friday - the TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE edition!

As promised last week! Massacre of the Texas Chain Saw variety! Or of the Texas Chainsaw variety, depending on how nerdy you want to get.

The Media Home Entertainment advert may not belong necessarily, but it's too cool not to include. *cue theme from All in the Family*

I've got the top poster signed and personalized by several members of the original cast. Love it.

I know I always mention how cool the Japanese posters are but the first Japanese one (with Marilyn Burns strapped to the chair) is really cool.

Not much work here—they're all pretty obvious except for the Japanese:

悪魔のいけにえ is , Akuma Noikenie which I think means “Satan Sacrifice” (Satan's? …to Satan?)

And the Italian one is awesome, if you've ever seen a horror movie in a black neighborhood—Don’t Open That Door.

The Italian ones are things of beauty! And I love the Japanese one that has the meat hook going right through Pam's head.

"Satan Sacrifice"...wow, just a little misleading!

Yeah, I adore that Japanese Marilyn Burns one.

The third one makes me laugh.

It looks like an eighties stand-up video with the brick wall.

"It's a Comedy MASSACRE in Texas! And here is our host- LEATHERFAAAAAAACE!"

Why are the Japanese ones always the most beautiful? I want to make that one into, like, stationery. Also, "Motorsavs Massakren" is pretty catchy-sounding.

I'm slightly offended by the one with the tagline "Mas aterradora que SCREAM." Scream doesn't belong on that list!

The "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" posters are awesome, three of them with the "Motorsavs Massakren" danish pride yo. Wonder if they are still available after all these years?
