Classic Thai horror-movie poster art

The exhibition of film poster art by Chawana Boonchoo just wrapped up over the weekend at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center, and now there's another gallery of classic movie posters online at Monster Brains.

There are dozens of posters to gander at, all displayed in a very large size.

They are mostly posters for the Thai releases of Hollywood horror and sci-fi films of the 1970s and '80s.

The movies include Jaws, The Evil Dead, Ghoulies, Nightmare on Elm Street, An American Werewolf in London, Terminator and Robocop.

There's even one for the original Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone. However, I can't believe the Thai artist missed an opportunity to paint a three-breasted woman.

There are also a few posters for Thai films, such as the Sompote Sands crocodile creature feature Krai Thong, and even a Hong Kong flick, Sammo Hung's Close Encounters of a Spooky Kind II.
