This Halloween TVTA has taken over an abandoned Blockbuster video store… Please make your video selections from the °TVTA-BUSTER HORROR SHELF° below. Choose 2 titles and get a 3rd free! Or why not take our Bloody Halloween Special: 7 titles in exchange for a litre of blood? C’mon, it’s only a teeny tiny litre of blood – the average human body contains nearly 5 litres of the stuff. It doesn’t even have to be your own blood!
Presenting: 24 Japanese horror movie posters. From originals to remakes to recently made. Many titles you’ll recognise, others perhaps not, some drift into genres like sci-fi and fantasy while retaining a suitable horror element.
Go ahead… pick your films wisely, lock the doors, close the curtains and enjoy! And don’t forget to rewind the tapes back to the beginning before returning them to the store!

I finally added examples of Covenant and Prometheus to my Alien Chirashi run. A Chirashi is a doubled-sided mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” – approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm.
A Chirashi is a printed mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). A relatively cheap and space-saving alternative to regular-size industry posters, Chirashis make excellent movie memorabilia collectables.
When The Wind Blows.
Most Chirashis are double-sided with an image from the film printed in colour on the front. Additional artwork and information printed in Japanese appears on the reverse. As well as the standard double-sided format, some Chirashi are more elaborate – opening up as gate-fold, tri-fold or quad-fold posters. Other deluxe features can include thicker card stock, metallic print, UV overlay, Mylar print, and die-cutting.
