Grade: C8 Very Fine. Rolled, single-sided. Unused poster with only the most minimal handling/surface/edge wear. Would grade higher if not for the lightest of wear in the upper two corners and a tiny bit in the lower left. A wonderful example of a poster that is incredibly hard to find rolled.

“You can’t kill the boogeyman.” Few films in the history of cinema can claim to be as influential as John Carpenter’s 1978 cult classic, Halloween. Not only did it establish many of the most common tropes in the horror genre, but it also introduced the world to the genius of John Carpenter. To top it all off, Halloween was one of the most profitable independent films of all time — with a budget of $300k it made over $110 million!
The UK quad for Halloween is already a rare poster — but this rolled example from 1979 (the first release in England) is even moreso! Nearly every example I’ve seen of this poster has been folded and, given the semi-gloss paper stock, has obvious fold lines with ink loss across the poster. You’ll be hard pressed to find a nicer example than this one.
