  1. Revised artwork, by Tom Chantrell, of the American 1965 cinema release movie poster painting by Reynold Brown for DIE, MONSTER, DIE!, using a high-quality copy of Brown's artwork as its basis.For the UK release, a year later, the movie was re-titled, MONSTER OF TERROR, and was double-billed with THE HAUNTED PALACE.Chantrell directly used the copy of Reynold Brown's artwork, re-painting parts of it to modify the image for the UK release. I'd roughly estimate Chantrell's re-painting at around 35% of the overall image.For whatever reason, the MONSTER OF TERROR half of the double-bill poster artwork was later removed from the overall painting and, at some stage, the revised artwork was badly folded - in the process losing parts of the pasted-up title and production credits.
  2. Oh, sure, not a problem. The particular story I'm being held hostage on by a Spanish collector is this one, in which I own 32 pages out of a 48 page total: The other 1965 serial is this one, in which I own 11 pages out of a 18 page total: Coincidentally, seeing that you mention it, there is a Jeff Hawke serial I've been putting back together in part, but only looking to assemble 18 representative examples out of something like a 77 daily total. I'm now at 14 strips on that idea:
  3. God luck with the quest, Chis. Declaring an interest in putting a strip together is not without drawbacks. During the course of the past ten years or so I've been trying to put back together two UK strips from 1965. While I've been successful with two other collectors who were happy to help out, a third guy who lives n Spain wants something like 10 x FMV in trade for the one example he owns. I don't have a problem going in with a higher number, but self respect prevents me from giving in to extortion! Thankfully the positives outweigh the negatives, so I think making quests public yields better results!
  4. Sam Peffer original UK movie poster painting for the 1976 French Horror/Sexploitation film, SEVEN WOMEN FOR SATAN (original title, ‘Les week-ends maléfiques du Comte Zaroff’). Image size of approximately 20” x 15”, on a larger overall board (there is an acetate overlay containing film title and production credits.Interestingly, this French movie got banned in France at time of its release!“Boris Zaroff is a modern businessman who is haunted by his past -- his father was the notorious Count Zaroff of The Most Dangerous Game fame. Consequently, Boris is subject to hallucinations and all-too-real social lapses which normally involve sadistic harm to beautiful naked young women. His butler is sworn to indoctrinating him into the evils of the family line, and their castle's torture dungeon proves quite useful in this regard. However, Boris is periodically lured away from his destiny by the romantic apparition of the deceased countess who previously owned the castle.”
  5. Original US one-sheet painting (with the exception of a photographic inset on the axe's blade) for AND NOW THE SCREAMING STARTS! (1973). No idea who the artist is.AND NOW THE SCREAMING STARTS! was a 1973 British gothic horror film. It was one of the few feature-length horror stories by Amicus, a company best known for anthology or "portmanteau" films.The screenplay, written by Roger Marshall, was based on the novel FENGRIFFEN by David Case. It starred Peter Cushing, Herbert Lom, Patrick Magee, Stephanie Beacham and Ian Ogilvy, and was directed by Roy Ward Baker. The large gothic house used in the film is Oakley Court, near Bray village, which is now a four star hotel."In 1795, newlyweds Catherine (Beacham) and Charles Fengriffen (Ogilvy) move into Charles' stately mansion. Catherine falls victim to a curse placed by a wronged servant on the Fengriffen family and its descendants."
  6. Vampire in Coffin by the late Wayne England. No idea where this appeared.
  7. Tarantula joining the cast of The Riverdance for the battle of Lead Dancer . . . drawn by Rob Liefeld, of course
  8. I used to own the complete story along with the cover that ties-in to it.
  9. An original movie campaign painting by Tom Chantrell for the unmade Hammer film, A SCENT OF NEW-MOWN HAY, circa 1969. Based on a book by John Blackburn, the story featured a Cold War setting and a deadly virus that transforms females into mutant beings. Chantrell's visualisation shows the mutation in process and in typical fashion (for both Chantrell & Hammer), the campaign artwork features some over-the-top nudity (that would never have been allowed on any kind of General Release material).To help secure financial backing for proposed Hammer Films projects, artist Tom Chantrell would frequently be called-upon to create artworks that would best visualize the kind of movies they were looking to produce.
  10. Magic the Gathering, 'Armored Skaab' oil painting by Volkan Baga.
  11. Original painting by UK artist Tom Chantrell for the 1980 Horror comedy, DR. HECKYL AND MR. HYPE. The artwork's definitely better than the lousy movie it's showcasing.
