Cool Crap : Japanese Poster For Death Warmed Up

Gruesome Japanese poster for the 1984 New Zealand horror movie Death Warmed Up. I have seen this film but cannot for the life of me remember anything about it, great poster design though.

Ha, yeah it's bizarre ! The Japanese are incredibly up front about splatter in their designs. Yeah, I remember this film from the VHS days, but I never saw it, even though it had a pretty good rep among gorehounds - if I'm remembering it rightly this one was quite splashy and was pretty much left intact by the BBFC. The UK VHS sleeve was designed by the artist Graham Humphreys who was responsible for a lot of memorable VHS sleeves from that era - the first two Evil Deads, Creepers (alternative cut of Argento's Phenomena), the great Elm Street quad, Return of the Living Dead, The Stuff, Vamp, Basket Case. There's a good montage of his sleeves here
