Hilarious Ghana Movie Posters

Posted: September 3rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hilarious Ghana Movie PostersSubmit Comment
In the 1980s, several local businessmen in Ghana would travel from town to town in order to make money from their "mobile cinema," which was nothing more than a truck equipped with a VCR and several bootleg copies of Hollywood films. Movie-goers would pay a fee in order to enjoy these movies played in the back of the truck.

To promote the screenings, local artists were hired to paint large posters on used canvas flour sacks. The artists were given the freedom to paint the posters as they desired, often without even seeing the films first.

We now have these posters for movies like "Cujo," "Terminator 2" and "Evil Dead II."

I would love to buy all of these and put them up in my house.
And Ash looks like Sylvester Stallone for some reason.

that house party one is just too good for words..the fact that a bunch of people sat in the back of a truck to watch a bootlegged copy of house party based on that advertisement. i just love it.

Why does Cujo have a bloodhounds head, and a horses body? The lady in the picture appears to be asian, have I watched the wrong movie?
