    ...and I think 'why don't theaters get hot chicks in hearses to hang out in front of movie theaters anymore?'

    You could always count on Dwain Esper for some ballyhoo... Marihuana (1936) had a display of drugs in the lobby.

    Yes, the Butchermobile was awesome! At least I'd imagine it was, having never seen it in person.

    When I was a teenager my friend managed to get the video store to give him one of these when they were done with it.

    I had a standee for CURSE II:THE BITE but my cat chewed it up and puked on it.
    Now everyone can have a complete KRULL lifestyle.
