My Favourite Hand Painted Movie Posters From Ghana

If you haven’t read my other post on the crazy world of hand painted movie posters from Ghana then I recommend  you read it first. Well, only if you’re interested in the history of why these things even exist. If you’re just in it for the lulz then read on!

A movie poster should be an image which evokes thoughts and emotions of what that movie is/was about. It’s usually your first introduction as this is what you’d see before even setting eyes on the movie.

This does not seem to be the case with regards to Ghana and it’s movie bootlegs:

7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

 

I don’t remember a woman with snakes for hands in that film… although, the Cyclops having a barbecue is a nice touch.

CROCODILE

 

Oh look, it’s a movie about a hybrid crocodile/duck. Hang on, that sounds better than the actual film itself…

EVIL DEAD

So, this one is about a knife weilding teddy bear (possibly a werewolf) with Jason masks in the picture. Sounds pretty awesome! Oh no, wait it’s… it’s WHAT?!

FRIDAY THE 13TH HELL

OK, now I’m confused. Either that’s a Jason doll, or that’s a helluva big woman behind him! Although what does ‘sharp ashaiman’ mean? I’m sure they’re pretty close to the original Hollywood poste… oh. No. They’re miles off…

FROM DUSK TILL DAWN

Whoa! This one looks pretty awesome! A chick, a big monster beastie thing, guns. I’m sold! Oh, wait…

GARGANTUA VS. GODZILLA 2

Oh come on! You’ve got to be kidding me here, that’s not even close to:

HELL BOY a

 

Hell Boy it says. Nawwww. it can’t be that Hellboy. It’s completely different! Wait, that logo in the background is familiar…

HELL BOY[h]

 

 

LEPRECHAUN

 

You win this one Ghana!

PLANET TERROR

 

A one legged tranny with a gun tied to her left shoulder? I’m confused…

PLANET TERROR[h]

 

 

SLEEP WALKERS

 

OK, I’m sold on this one. A naked chick getting mauled by rabid cats. I’m in! Oh, wait…

SLEEP WALKERS[h]

 

 

TERMINATOR 2

 

You’ve got to be shittin’ me. Oh dear Lord…

TERMINATOR 2[h]

 

 

THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING

 

YESSS! Cookie Monster has gone mad and is attacking scantily clad chicks on the beach!

THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING[h]

 

 

THE SPY WHO LOVE ME

 

OK, you win this time Ghana! Curse you!

THE SPY WHO LOVE ME[h]

Having survived the UK's 'video nasty' (prohibition) era I'm eager to catch up with all previously unseen sleaze and filth. I revel in mixtape oddness, boobage, gore, and proper latex special effects, don't get me started on CGI... - email Ronnie
