MACABRE, 1958. Original Horror US 1 sheet (27×41″) movie theater poster for sale and starring; William Prince, Jim Backus, Christine White, writers Robb White (screenplay), Anthony Boucher (novel) and director William Castle. Actually a pretty horrifying premise, this macabre movie originally released to theaters in the 50s is in part about being buried alive with 5 hours of air! William Castle decided to try a unique marketing idea; he supplied each viewer attending the theater performance with an official certificate issued by Lloyds of London to insure them for $1,000 against death by fright. An exploitation star, this was his first gimmick attempt that paved his way to being a master of horror exploitation! Of course this fact adds to the collectible nature of this 1 sheet for this awesome horror film!
This original US 1 sheet movie poster that is for sale is in very good condition, however it does have some minor imperfections that can be fixed after linen backing and some light restoration.
