Italian Posters

Mexican horror and fantasy films enjoyed distribution in Italy, and must have influenced the Italian gothic horrors of the early 1960s. The Italian poster artwork for these films is some of the best to be found internationally. Here is the Italian poster for Misterios de ultratumba (Mysteries from Beyond the Grave, aka The Black Pit of Dr. M).

And one for La nave de los monstruos (Ship of Monsters):

La nave, incidentally, is due soon for a NTSC release, in the Spanish language only, unfortunately.

But will it have English subtitles? I've become a big fan of Mexican Horror since CasaNegra's releases (Just got one of the few remaining copies of The Monster and The Man), and now that they've gone out of business, need to find other sources to get Mex-Horror.

Unfortunately, no English subtitles!
