13 Ghosts, 1960

Questions: was it already a ghost when it was hung?   If so, was it hung by fellow ghosts?
Broader question, really: how does the whole “ghost” thing work?

Polish horror posters

If you’ve never taken a look through some Polish movie posters, then get your Google Image Search going and type in that phrase. Wildly creative and often downright baffling, these are almost addictive to look at, especially being used to the bad-Photoshop, overused-template movie posters we get in this country.

Here are some great Polish posters for horror films:

Rosemary’s Baby

Young Frankenstein

Kwaidan

The Birds

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Nosferatu the Vampyre

The Legacy

The Fly

Alien

Horror at the fair

For a while now, I’ve been collecting pictures of old “ghost shows” and horror-themed fair attractions. This particular spiritualism-inspired exhibit developed into things like spookshows and the usually-disappointing clattering old fair rides (which I always still loved), but seem to not be around so much these days.

Here are some of my favorites from the heyday:
