Fright Nights - Hand drawn Horror Movie posters from Ghana

Every night in October we're bringing you a different horror themed article, and tonight we've got something a little different.

Some of you may remember those hand drawn movie posters from Ghana we ran a few months back. Basically, back in the 1980s temporary cinemas started to appear across Ghana (thanks mainly to the home video tape phenomenon of the time), even today they continue to be a popular source of entertainment. But although the 'mobile cinema' operators may have gotten their hands on a VHS or a few cans of film, they couldn't locate the movie posters needed to promote the film and attract the paying customers. So they hired artists who were often given complete freedom to paint the posters as they wanted, in many cases it's clear that some of them didn’t even watch the film beforehand, but that kind of adds to the awesomeness of them!

We've already had a couple of collections (here and here), but below you can check out some horror themed ones. I honestly think some of them are better than the originals...

I'd watch the hell out of that!
