Cinepanic! in Palm Springs with more vintage Thai movie posters
Last January there was a Thai movie poster show at a gallery in Palm Springs, California, called Eyegasm: The Art of Thai Movie Posters that was pretty cool and got a lot of attention.
Now Swank Modern Design brings another selection in Cinepanic! Vintage Thai Terror Posters.
While the earlier show featured some action and sci-fi titles, this one is totally devoted to horror cult classics, like The Evil Dead II, Day of the Dead and Frogs. There's even an old Thai ghost movie, Krasue vs. Phi Pop (Filth-Eating Ghost vs. Liver-Eating Ghost).
They are all from the M. Wright Collection, and most are very rare, Wright says, adding: "We are not making money on this event, our intent is the exposure of Thai movie posters to a Western audience."
The show started on September 28 and runs until November 4, with a reception next Saturday, October 20, from 8 to 10pm.
If you can't make it out to the desert haven, have a look at online gallery.
