Grade: C7 Fine to Very Fine. Folded, single-sided. Prior to linen backing this was a theater used poster with minimal handling/edge/fold wear, would grade higher if not for tape repairs at the top fold line and cross fold, a slight extra fold and the censor stamp. Now appears near mint and Quebec censor stamp was kept in place for this super rare country-of-origin Canadian horror film.
Framing: List prices are for posters only. Please inquire to discuss framing options.
Black Christmas is as cult as it gets! Credited with being one of, if not the very first film in the slasher genre. The plot seems like run of the mill horror these days, but at the time it was still an original idea to have a crazed killer stalking sorority sisters in the build up to the holiday break… who would have thought!
The film was made in Canada and had only a shoestring budget. The release it got was equally small which means pretty all the original release posters are crazy rare. There was also a title change for the US audiences leading to even more difficulty finding nice posters with the correct english title. This Canadian poster is one of the Holy Grails of the horror genre. Not only did it predate the US release by several months, but it used the correct title as well! This poster has been restored on linen, but the Canadian censor stamp was left in place to celebrate it’s origin. Don’t miss this super rare poster!
