The Fine Art of THE BRIDES WORE BLOOD
I posted a newspaper ad for the premiere of The Brides Wore Blood awhile back, courtesy of former Florida filmmaker Fred Olen Ray. A few months later, Fred sent me the fantastic artwork below, which he originally commissioned for some advertising, but ultimately never used. ("I think people were turned off by the idea that a pregnant woman was stabbing herself in the stomach," Ray told me.) It looks much closer to the image in the original film (but not much like what was used on the video box above). The artist was Chet Collom, who also did work on Satan's Cheerleaders, The Phantom Empire, and Cycle Vixens.
