Hey guys,

Just wanted to share some of my ad-slick collection with you from time to time. I figured I'd start a thread where members can post requests and I'll try to fill them. Some of these images haven't been seen in quite some time, and a lot of you will remember them from browsing your local newspaper growing up. Anyways, if you have a film from the 1980's that you'd like to see the ad-slick from, reply in this post and I'll get it posted as soon as possible. Thanks!

Up first-

May 15, 1987 - The Gate

I'd love to see all of the early 80's slasher movie ads. :) No particular movie... ALL of them! I'm asking too much ain't I? :lol: You have your work cut out for you Mike_M!

These are awesome. As a kid, I loved looking at them in the movie section of the newspaper. Ones I most clearly remember from the 80s are Godzilla 1985 and Critters 2.

That TCM2 Breakfast Club parody is one of my favorite poster/cover/ad images.
