"The Creeping Flesh" Original One Sheet. "A terrifying journey through the nightmare worlds of evil, insanity and terrible revenge." Okay, so it's not a very catchy tagline. This is a pretty good flick that reunites 2 of my favorite actors: Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Peter Cushing's character returns from an expedition to New Guinea. He has in his possession the skeletal remains of what he believes to be a creature of supreme evil. When he discovers that water causes flesh to regenerate on the bones, he uses the tissue to create a serum that he hopes will prevent his daughter from succumbing to the same madness that consumed his late wife. Unfortunately, his selfish brother, played by Christopher Lee, puts too much water on it and the monster begins to come to life. It's from 1973. Here's the trailer.
"The Creatures" aka "From Beyond the Grave" Original One Sheet. "Terror to delight worshippers of the Macabre." An Amicus anthology that's supposed to be pretty good with Donald Pleasence and Peter Cushing from 1973. Based upon 4 short stories by R. Chetwynd-Hayes. Here's the trailer.

"Forbidden World" Original One Sheet for the Roger Corman cult classic from 1982. A new life form has been genetically engineered on a research station in deep space in an attempt to combat a food crisis on Earth. It goes nuts and starts killing the researchers. This used to be difficult to find but it's being released again in mid-July of 2010 on Blu-Ray and DVD. Keep your eyes peeled for some other hard-to-find Roger Corman flicks finally coming later in the year. Here's the German Trailer.
"This is the way it was." Well, not really. "One Million Years BC" Four 8x10 promotional stills. Raquel Welch as Loana, from the 1966 classic Hammer Film "One Million Years BC." I won't go into the silly plot, but this movie is mostly famous for Raquel in her fur bikini, and secondly for Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion visual effects. One famous scene has a cat fight between Raquel Welch and Martine Beswick. Always a fun watch. Here's the trailer.
"Deadlier Than the Male" Original insert and 8x10 promotional still. I just re-watched this film and I had forgotten how much fun it is. Elke Sommer (pictured above) and Sylva Koschina play 2 female assassins. They kill their targets with bombs, spear guns, and a cigar that fires a bullet into the poor fellow smoking it. With Richard Johnson as Hugh Drummond, the man tasked with finding, and stopping them. It's from 1966, and it's sequel, "Some Girls Do," came out in 1969.
