Which of the many variations of all of the Halloween posters, daybills, quads, etc is your favorite image? Doesn't have to be one you own either............For me its a toss-up between the creepy skull-pumpkin on H2 and the great image on the Australian one sheet for H4 (shows more of the mask than the US version)....................Larry

I think it would be a toss between the Halloween II pumpkin/skull or the french H20 poster.

My all time FAV poster of the series came out of Czechloslovakia :)

My next FAV would have to be the H3 Quad.

The Original US 1 Sheet for 'Halloween.' THE BEST!

A CLOSE Second, is the 'Halloween II' US 1 Sheet.

I remember the original art going up for sale from the Halloween original one sheet....can't remember if it was Ebay or else where or how much it went for, but wouldn't that be cool to have framed?

The Austrailian daybill of Mike over the stairs. I have always loved it...although I don't own it sadly. I've just always thought that this particular shot looks cool.

I was always partial to the H2 Argentine one-sheet myself, and the Australian daybill.

There is a poster that was used for H20 in France I believe. That was gorgeous. Someone even used it to make the cover for a H20 workprint. I also like this Japanese miniposter that I got from eBay. Real nice

I have that same poster. It is probably my 3rd favorite. It is also hanging on my wall.

My favorite is probably the H1 Norweigian (sp?) Poster. I know of absolutely NO ONE that owns that one. It is very rare!

My 2nd favorite is the H2 Scandinavian poster. I don't know of anyone in possession of that, either.

You people should post some examples of these. Anway, I like the US H4 poster. The house behind Michael's head in the background looks so cool.

I don't have an image on mine on my computer - but on the halloweenmovies.com website - under Halloween 2, picture gallery, advertising, it's the 8th picture.

You see Michael (from the back) walking down the hospital corridor. In the top left hand side are 4 images from the movie, in a red boxed border - crispy Tramer, Dr. Mixter, Laurie with the gun, and Michael stabbing Jill in the back with the scalpel.

Hope that helps!! :)

Another beautiful poster, as others have pointed out, is the French H20. Go to the H20 section, picture gallery, marketing, it's image 5/17. I'm thinking it's a dark scan, my poster was a bit more on the blue side (yes I said WAS - years ago I traded with someone for an H2 Chaos comic, silly Jenn!)

That is a cool one even though it's the Wallace house from H1 on a H4 poster, but cool nontheless.

I'd have to say my favorite posters I don't own are h2 argentine and h2 mexican lobby poster. I've heard there a set of 5 but i've only seen one image and it's one of my favorites. Posters I do own would have to be my h1 spanish, h2 japanese, h2 daybill, and h2 aussie one sheet, and my h1 aussie one sheet. Hard to select one really but h1 spanish would probably be it. Actually, for h1 a favorite i don't have is the norwegian. I'd be willing to pay a very hefty sum for one but, I've never seen one.

And there is a set of five, Mike, on those Mexican lobby posters. Gerry D has an alternate one to the one I have (with Mrs. Elrod in the bubble instead of Laurie). Who the hell has a Norweigian poster? Even the guy I bought my H1 Agrentine one-sheet off had never seen one, and he had Danish, Hungarian and Polish H1 one-sheets! :eek:

Well. The person that has one I don't want to mention because I don't want to be blamed for him getting several emails to sell his. Only person I know of that has it. If you go to halloween movies website and look under movies and h1 I think marketing pics you see a scan of the h1 norwegian. Doesn't say Norwegian but it is the image with the very odd face with the myers house in the background I beleive. It's image 22. I offered to buy it from him once but he refused. Whether he has it or not still I donno.

Actually, I was talking to a Norwegian connection and he said the text on the norwegian poster was danish. Donno if thats true or not, but it would make sense to why the danish h2 poster had very similar text. Mr. taft can you clarify if that image we thought was norwegian is infact danish?

No, they're completely different. The Danish poster has the usual pumpkin/knife artwork and lots of taglines. He might have meant it was written in Dutch.

There was no such poster as the one to which you refer. You're probably thinking of the H2 Australian one-sheet which has Loomis on one side of Michael, and Michael killing Janet on the other. Also, Loomis can be seen on the H1 Thai one-sheet and a special H1 UK Quad.

Norwegian Halloween one sheet. I've studied the text. It is infact Danish. It reads masked night. It's either Danish or it's Danish text but Norwegian. I strongly think it is Danish. Has anyone seen any H1 Danish's? Nope because this must be Danish. If you look at the Halloween 2 Danish it reads Maskernes Nat 2. Which is masked night 2.

Some languages may seem identical. Take the Belgian mini posters and the French two sheet posters. They both have French text. Maybe that goes for Norwegian and Danish too.
