    According to this site here (which has a great little gallery of strange posters like this) what we have here is the Polish one sheet for The Fly.

    I couldn't find a poster for NIGHTFALL, but it promised a sci-fi film on another planet with space travel and rocketships etc. Instead we got none of that. Just another low-budget terrestrial film about the end of times, this one directed by Paul Mayersberg, who wrote the script to THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH and the book The Haunted Screen. Starred David Birney walking around in a priestly white robe. B-o-r-i-n-g. I saw NIGHTFALL in April 1980 in San Diego, according to my film-going journal. The imdb lists the film as being released in April 1988, which is wrong:

    I went to see the film on the basis of the poster.

    Another poster that misrepresented the contents was ONCE (1974) only in this case the film was better than the poster. The poster didn't say anything about young Marta Kristen from LOST IN SPACE walking around au naturale as Eve in a metaphorical garden of eden. Now a lost film.

    Yes, it was a random Korean movie, set in America, that Aquarius grabbed and stuck on a new title sequence showing someone jumping out of Bruce Lee's grave! The rest of the film had nothing to do with it! Awesome film though!

    Note the "Bert Lenzi" credit on the poster - I can assure you the director was Korean!

    God, that's awesome. I wish you could snag those for less than $200, though. Haven't seen a hand painted African movie poster I haven't wanted.

    I find it amusing that the artist only just realised that he was running out of space for the title, so rather than start again just squashed the "impossible".

    I like that little spermy things hanging off of the letters.

    And that Polish Fly poster looks like it was drawn on a Vic 20.
