    Description

    Curse of the Demon (Columbia, 1957). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (41.25" X 78.5").
    This atmospheric British film, about a psychologist investigating a devil worshipping cult, features one of the most memorable creatures to come from horror films of the 1950s. The incredible monster showcased on this frightening poster is actually based on a woodcut print from a 1650s book on demonology. And even though the demon appears on this three sheet and in the film, director Jacques Tourneur didn't want to depict it, feeling that the mystery of what it looked like outweighed showing it. Restoration has addressed slight edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and slivers of paper loss in the folds. There were minor tears and a couple of small chips in the borders. Still visible are some faint unaddressed stains and smudges. There has been some airbrushing to the borders.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
