Horror Chirashi

Tired of that same ole movie poster – want the man cave to have a little international flare?

Check out some of these Friday the 13th Movie posters from Japan.  In Japan these are known as Eiga Chirashi or movie flyers.  Not only do they sometimes showcase new artwork they are also very small in size.  I have quite a few of these in my collection and they look great framed.

Eiga Chirashi (映画チラシ?, " movie flyers") are placed in cinema lobbies in Japan to promote current and future movie releases. They often take the form of a miniature replica of the movie's poster with promotional photos and copy on the reverse.

The standard Chirashi is a single B5 sheet (approximately 7"x10"/18cmx26cm) with the poster design printed on the front in colour. The reverse side can be monochrome or full-colour, occasionally it may be stamped in a designated space with the name and contact details of the cinema where the Chirashi was picked up or have these printed in a strip along the bottom.
Double-sided and two or four page Chirashi are sometimes produced.

The paper used can vary, from gloss to matte, thick to thin. The majority of Chirashi are printed on slightly heavy, glossy paper.

Eiga Chirashi are very collectible - they are available only for a limited time, sometimes exist in several variations, feature artwork used only for the Japanese market (often with cool re-creations of the movie's original logo in Japanese characters)














In the following days I will be release more of these bad ass posters...so stayed tuned in the mean time:
