One of the most interesting questions I get asked is “What’s so great about collecting freaky movie memorabilia?” The answer is actually quite simple. It’s one of those things that if you just look for it, you’ll find.
I’m talking about the subject of mystery and suspense. There’s no better way to create entertainment than to think that you’re the only one that knows what’s going on! In a movie or a television show, you have some idea of what’s going on, but sometimes it’s just more fun to be the mystery. Collecting movie posters can provide that thrill and allow you to participate in this particular type of excitement.
If you haven’t noticed, commercials are really big on this topic. They try to explain how hard life is sometimes, with commercials about the stresses of work and home and the stresses of school and work and home. It’s all a bunch of nonsense, but it’s somehow becomes part of our culture. People love commercials like these because they’re entertaining and informative at the same time. This is exactly what you’ll be doing when you’re collecting movie posters as a hobby!
Another big reason to collect freaky movie memorabilia is the subject itself. Movies are always sensational… they’re filled with thrilling action and unbelievable exploits. These are things that just aren’t represented very well in things like cards and posters. You can make these movies into works of art by creating your own movie art.
This is where you have to think about things like the title, the genre, and the era of the movie. All of these things will play a huge role in what your movie memorabilia looks like and where you hang it proudly in your home. Of course, the most important aspect of it is the image of the character that you’re hanging it in. After all, it’s not the plot of the movie that makes it entertaining, but instead it’s the image of that character that captures our imagination and gets us all excited. With that said, here are a few different types of freaky movie characters to choose from:
These are just a few of the many classic and obscure films from the past that you might want to consider getting. There are bound to be others that you will find interesting as well. The whole point of collecting this type of movie memorabilia is so that you can relive the moment that you were in when it occurred. As you can see, there’s a lot of history in this particular genre. And who knows, if you start collecting now, maybe someday you’ll be able to watch some of that history on a long forgotten movie from years ago!
