Today's Monster Memories are of:
The video release ad for "Day of the Dead"
Oh, you're gonna love me for this one. When you click on the image you'll get a bloodshot eyefull of zombiedom's main man, Bub, in a cool painting to tout the movie's 1986 release to VHS. This was a full-page ad slick, 8 1/2 by 11, sent out to video dealers, one of which kindly passed his tossed-off promotional materials to me. And now I'm posting a hi-rez scan just for you.
And, for no particular reason other than I like you, below are some pictures I took while in Savannah, GA recently. That town has the most photogenic cemeteries in the country, I think. That's where the graveyard scenes in "City of the Living Dead" were filmed. Why more movies aren't made in these historic cemeteries, I don't know, but they are awesome, and huge. You could film in any direction and never view anything but old tombstones and moss-covered trees as far as the eye can see.
Usually if I were to add a post about a monster magazine, it would be right here... but this monster magazine has a Star Trek cover story, so I'm featuring it on my other blog, "My Star Trek Scrapbook." Beam on over and check it out! I even gleaned something from it for my Held Over! movie ad blog.
