Ghana Movie Posters

As cinephiles, we love movie posters. Right now on my wall there are original double sided one sheets for The Dark Knight, Minority Report, Back to the Future Part II, Dick Tracy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and many more not even in frames. For us, posters are used to show our love for certain films, but first and foremost they are used to promote films. But not everyone has access to posters, and in the West African nation of Ghana, traveling movie shows have paintings created by local artists, and some of them are hilariously terrifying recreations of the films, and some of them are mind-numbingly ridiculous. Look!

Here are some of these Ghana movie poster paintings from Awesome Robo:

These are just a handful of these paintings, and you can see dozens more right here. Some of these will haunt your dreams and don't even resemble the films they're trying to promote. That Evil Dead II poster makes it seem like a caricature of Sylvester Stallone is starring in the film. And I'm not sure what's wrong with the woman in the Planet Terror poster, but she looks like a more attractive Pamela Anderson rather than Rose McGowan. Also Michael Meyers looks pretty trashy with longer hair and we're pretty sure that dog in Cujo is not a St. Bernard, and looks more like he's crying blood. Pretty wild artwork, right?

    I can't blame anyone for making fun of this. I'm from Ghana and they don't have the luxury of having what people have here in the US so just go easy on them.

    The Cujo one is amazing. I need to see the film looking like that now.

    I don't know if Cujo was a St. Bernard in the film (I haven't seen it), but he definitely was in the original Stephen King novel.
